Pants.

Hi,

Pants. They come in lots of lovely colours, patterns and even some strange fabrics… But more to the point, they’re my favourite thing to say the name of when something goes wrong. What I’m trying to say is, rather than going s*** or f*** when something goes the opposite way to which I would have liked, I say PANTS! You may think that this is rude to pants but in no way am I hating on or dissing pants. No. In no way at all. Where would we be without them? In a sticky place, probably, but that’s not the point.

The point is I’m having to say it on a regular basis because our little Dell Inspiron 1501 has gone and kaput itself (kaput is basically f***ed in a German kind of way… sort of). Well, to be fair it fell backwards off of the little upturned shopping basket that it usually sits on (long story, and no, I’m not a tramp). What’s happened is the screen has cracked itself. Now if you own one of these laptops or you bothered to look up Dell Inspiron 1501, you’re probably thinking, ‘cracked? I didn’t know plastic screens could crack…’. Well, you’re right, but it’s a different type of crack. It’s that the little (minuscule, really) lights that make up the screens pixels (look really closely at this word and you can see it’s made up of loads of little dots…pixels) have been smashed and have gone a bit loopy. They can’t display what they want to so basically half (diagonally as well) of my laptop screen is out of use. Haywire. Nutty. Bonkers. You get the picture… (or do you?)

So what I’m trying to tell you, as softly as I can, is that I wont be making a single graphic for at least another month until we get a new laptop and I get Photoshop installed on it…and all of my Photoshop brushes…and patterns…and loads of other stuff.

Feel sorry for me.

Now.

You know you want to.

Maybe you don’t.

Maybe you need to be taught to.

Taught to feel sorry for me.

I’m am more off of track than ever before.

It feels good.

And like I’m losing you and every other reader I ever had.

Stopping the sentence a line thing and moving on, there’s not actually that much to tell or write to you about…except Apps.

Yes, my iPod’s still in good condition, apart from the little scratches…

You like recommendations of Apps, don’t you? Well, I’ll give some, even if you don’t like them… so there.

Lets start with the one and almighty… (drum-roll, please)… Tap Tap Revenge 4! Yes, it’s out, and pretty much the same as ever before. I never really liked it as it’s a total rip off to buy music and clothes for an online avatar which nobody gives a damn what’s wearing, so I’m not sure why I’m recommending it too, but millions of people seem to love it so I’m guessing you will. If you don’t know what it is then go on the App Store and look at the Top 25 FREE Apps. It’s in the top 5. Get it. Or not. Your choice.

Secondly, I’ll recommend you an App I actually like. The developers called it DoodleKart. It’s another one of those doodle-theme based games and it’s great. You’re a little racer guy and you can even draw your own karts! It’s awesome! Here’s a few of mine…

Yeah, I admit, none of them are cars, but they look so cool in a line-up before a race. The two at the bottom are empty slots, or as I see them, space for more madness! Meh Heh Heh!

NEXT!

Well, this App is unique. In a way that there’s no other App with the same graphics or name. Not so unique, really, then, is it?

It’s called Reckless Racing and it’s awesome. At first, for some reason, I saw it and thought it was just another failed attempt at another good racing game. But I was wrong, it wasn’t a failed one. It was a success. Oh, for God sake, why do I have to do these stupidly long intros to everything? GGRR…

Basically, you’re a little 4×4 and you’re racing against some other crazy nutters in army vehicles, tractor units and buggies. It’s so fun, there’s a lake and puddles, crates, other trucks and even some jumps. In the full version (I only have lite, @Stralis33CP has the full version) there’s even a cliff and you get to race as the other cars and jump of the cliff. Or if you’re like me or Stralis33, you’ll shunt other racers off of the cliff. That’s much more fun. 😉

I think that’s kind of it from me, although I do have one more cool thing for you.

Lately, I’ve got totally addicted to Deadmau5 (pronounced Dead-Mouse) the DJ-mixer-guy based in Toronto. He wears this awesome mask when he does gigs, take a look:

It also flashes to the beat of the music, it has lights in the mouth and eyes. How epic can you get? I’ve heard he even gets payed by his agent $1000 per gig just to wear it! He always takes the offer.

What I’m leading to is a little gift because you’ve been so good coming to my site! Your FREE little gift is three Deadmau5 songs, and I mean FREE. I’ve put my top three favourites from Deadmau5 into the gift (Strobe (Radio Edit), Arguru (Original Mix) and Faxing Berlin). To download them right click the links below and click ‘Save Target As’ or ‘Save Link As’. I’ve also made a little .ZIP that has all three compressed if you want ’em all!


Strobe (Radio Edit)

Arguru (Original Mix)

All Three .ZIP Folder

(Note: For the .ZIP file don’t right click, just click the link and it should work.)

Bye!

Cripes!

Hiya, People,

I’m really amazed today because I’ve just had a little look at our stats for this website and I’ve been literally gob-smacked! The results are both incredibly low and high (for different times, I have’t lost my marbles!)! Here’s a few numbers to look over and be amazed at:

  1. To start with I can tell you that the post two days ago with over 120 tags did get me exactly 70 hits! Isn’t that kind of strange yet unbelievably cool at the same time. I mean, the guess of 70 I put in the last post, I think, was, as I said, a totally random guess at a bit more than 58 (I saw it at 58 hits about an hour before).
  2. Secondly the monthly hit counter is quite amazing.
  • In June 2010 I collected a whopping…8 hits. How utterly crap!
  • More impressive was September 2010 with 394 hits. Space for improvement…
  • And this month, October, well it’s been great. This is only the 18th day of this month, about halfway, so we’ve got a load of head start to beat last month! C’mon guys!

Also today I have a load of really cool graphics things, perfect for iTouch wallpapers, mainly because they were created on an iPod Touch! Here they are:

Pretty awesome, huh. How your sitting there thinking how the f*** did he do that on an iPod without doing it pixel by ixel in a very advanced non-existant photo editing App. Well, I can tell you, I didn’t. Big surprise there! To make them I used an App called Meritum Paint. More info…

At the moment, Meritum Paint has to be my highest rated App on the entire store. It’s so easy to use and the iPad version must be a hell of an experience! OOHH…an iPad… Concentrate! As I was saying…UURR…Yeah…Well, that’s how I created these awesome images. What you do is drag your finger or toe or nose or whatever across the screen and you get loads of strange wisps come out of you into your devise! It’s incredible! You can have 3 settings to draw in too. There’s Normal where the strand things are just sharp, solid colour, then you have Neon, the setting I drew these pictures in and last and very much least we have Sci-Fi which is rubbish and not worth talking about! That’s basically it, go download it. It’s FREE!

Whilst I’m on the subject of Apps though I will tell you about another really cool App! It’s called Soosiz and its really cool. Here’s a picture:

Search it in the App store if you want more information but basically you walk and jump around loads of planets (from one to another) and let little people follow you (you’re supposedly saving them) and you finnish the level after defeating a few enemies and stuff. In the full version there’s loads of worlds and even bosses (big spiky balls) but you obviously have to pay for it (I got it for FREE because it was on the FreeAppADay scheme thingy.

Anyway, that’s all for today so bye.

MOO!

 


Oh Yeah!

Hi, (what shall I call you?),

I am really happy because I have just updated my iPod Touches software to iOS4.0.2, a version of iTouch operating system which has just become immune to some .PDF related Jailbreak! Funny! Didn’t think a scan of real piece of paper had anything to do with making an iPod Touch, iPhone or iPad supposedly ‘better’.

I’m really happy because, you see, when I updated the iOS to the all new iOS4 a little back I lost all of my notes, game progress* (and high-scores!), calendar dates, and bascially everything else. All the Apps were still there; just all of the data gone!

*This also meant that all of the songs I had downloaded on the Tap Tap Revenge tunes store had disappeared. Most of the songs are free for a while then paid. But because Apple were too stupid to realise it would delete all that stuff, I can’t play on loads of tracks anymore. I had downloaded loads of music on it and now I can only get excerpts, and only on some, as well. Oh, and before anyone says, I do not ever pay for songs! LOL! 😀 UUMM…

I think thats all…
