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)

Faxing Berlin

All Three .ZIP Folder

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

Hope you liked your FREE gift! Have a very Merry Christmas! I may come back and give another gift before the 25th. You should hope I do… 😉

Bye!

MOO!

PS: Tell me: Deadmau5 or David Guetta?


2 Weeks…Again

Hey, Guys,

Well, how’s it going? Should be really good because I’m about to post the long post I promised in my previous postette from school during lunch break (it’s cold out side). I’ve got quite a few graphics, possibly some App recommendation and a little something else…?

Let’s start with the graphics, shall we?

So, one day at school, me and Wimper were talking, and he came up with the idea of a spoof. This would be the first ever spoof of a video game, and it was going to be awesome. It was going to be called, Call of Fruity: Green Ops. Get it? Call of Duty, Call of Fruity? Basically, it’s about this guy who becomes a sort of eco warrior kind of person who goes around killing and taking down evil companies like Shell, BP, Disney, etc. He could have things like pineapples as grenades and possibly even bio-degradable bullets made from highly compressed grass, leaves, old enemies and other vegetation.

Now you’re probably wandering what has this got to do with graphics, right. Well, I thought I would make a kind of advert/graphic/cover for the game in Photoshop, and here’s what I turned out like:

C’mon, you have to like it! I know the whole grass thing did kind of fail but you have to remember that I did this entirely from FREE photos I got from Google Images, I didn’t have any access to un-watermarked stock photos.

Surprisingly, I’ve just realised that I’ve hardly made any graphics in the 2 or more weeks since the last post, but I have made a few Club Penguin graphics for people and I have a new Twitter profile picture. Here it is!

Yes, I know, how could I have saved it as a .GIF image, but there is a very valid reason. I originally made it as an animated picture with the word Dapizz slowly bouncing on the spot. However, Twitter recently removed the ability to have an animated Twitter picture. You may think I’m wrong, because people sometimes still have them now, but I’m am correct. The people that had one before get to keep theirs and I can’t have one! When I realised this, I opened the animation in Photoshop again, saved it as a normal .PNG, but the .GIF had already harmed it so it was just too late! MOO HOO HOO!

Moving on, the last graphic for today:

This was a header I made for this guy on Twitter, PC35. I made it for FREE, something which is practically un-heard of in my Twitter neighbourhood (if you can call it that) and then guess what he did! He A) Never used the header and B) Certainly didn’t give me any credit. I therefore watermarked it. I bet you can’t find where, though. 😉

Now, what shall I talk about?

Apps.

Pretty awesome things, huh?

Then I’ll recommend some to you! 😀

Let’s start with Bike Rider. This is a little game where you have to jump and double jump at the right moment to stop a little stick figure motocross bike rider guy from falling down a bottomless pit…with a bottom. There’s also two other buttons on the game screen but I haven’t really worked out what hey actually do. It’s FREE in the App Store and it’s a great little time waster if your a bus waiting kind of person.

The iTunes Best Album and Song 2010 Voting App. This little App lets you vote for what song and what album should win the iTunes Best Album and Song Competition 2010. Basically you select you top three favourite albums from the top 20 best selling albums of 2010 then you select your favourite top 3 songs from the top 20 best selling songs of 2010. To submit your votes you simply enter your first name, last name, email address and any additional comments you want to add then your free to delete the App! I hope Pass Out – Tinie Tempah will at least get in the top 3! 🙂

It sounds so lame I know but since my last proper post I haven’t really downloaded any more good Apps.

Very lame.

Want some news? Well, I’ve got seriously addicted to RWJ (Ray William Johnson) who does the awesome =3 video reviewing show on YouTube every day! I can only be bothered to post every other week nearly! Lame again.

I am lame.

Poo.

I wrote this post in two parts. I did up to the header graphic in the morning and I had planned out what I was going to post about later on in the post but now, in the afternoon, I’ve forgotten. It was something really cool as well. Don’t you hate that. When you think of something really cool to either do when you get home from something or maybe something to blog about then you finish what your doing, like going to the loo or something, and then you’ve forgotten it! AAHH!

Well at least Flo Rida, Ke$ha and Apple are keeping my alive. Flo Rida and Ke$ha for Right Round, Apple for the earphones and iTunes. Perfect.

I think I should go now before you witness me die via words seeing as I probably will when the song ends!

So tell me, people: Do you like Right Round (Feat. Ke$ha) – Flo Rida?

Dapizz – 😀

MOO!


2 Weeks!

Hello, Guys!

I’m sorry I haven’t posted in two weeks but I’ve been very busy. Forgetting the busy part of my revious sentence, I think you’re fully entitled to some rich graphics, App reviews and an overall, nice, good, old, long post. Forget ‘old’. (silence for a few seconds)

So, as you know, I’m reasonably into Club Penguin, on and off, and, as you also know, I’m really into Twitter now. I was hanging around Twitter a while back and I noticed there was a guy with an embarrassingly bad Twitter profile picture (have you seen my new Gravatar?) so I sent him a tweet. He then asked me if I would make him a Club Penguin cheat site banner for his website. I said yes and guess what I did?

I made one:

Yes it is an animated .GIF! I love them. You can get some really bad ones which, I know, just make you cringe badly, but when I use .GIF animation (BTW I do hate to boast) I think you usually get pretty good results! It was supposed to be a Christmas banner so that’s the reason for the tree in background. WOOT! Christmas! Oh, boy, do I love Christmas! However we mustn’t forget the true meaning of Christmas! No, especially if your not even religious! I find it so annoying and heartbreaking to see little children spending their entire Christmas sitting on a hard wooden bench all day listening to some under enthusiastic life-less guy talk about some think they probably don’t even understand! BTW I’m talking about little children that should be opening presents and playing with their mates in the snow instead of sitting in a cold church all day. I can get a little off track some times so I better focus back on the post. Yes. Focus.

You in need of some more graphics, huh? I won’t disappoint you:

I was experimenting with Photoshop CS5 when I was in a bad mood but now I look back it wasn’t actually that bad so I though I’d upload it! More:

A cool Dapizz button logo using a new font I’ll mention later! NEXT!

This was actually something I made quite a while ago but never remembered to upload or post! Now I see it again I really like it! (what can I say that isn’t NEXT or More?):

A nice new idea for a wallpaper, huh? I made a while ago too and never ot round to putting online so here it is. I’m making it my  wallpaper as soon as this post’s done! Moving on:

I know it’s not much to your interest but I made it and like it, it was my friend, Stralis33’s, idea and it’s his Club Penguin cheat site’s official logo!

As I said earlier, I will now give some thick, gloopy, App review. I don’t have a clue why an App review is in any way gloopy, but I think it sounds nice. I like gloop. Gloopy gloop. I’m going off track again. Focus. Apps.

Ok, one of the best Apps I’ve downloaded in the past month has to be Stick Wars. This is the very popular game that you also find on the Internet, where you have to defend, repair, and protect a wall of your castle. Loads of stick men (or bunnies if you download the ‘Bunny Hoard’ extra) are running at your wall with their fists, spears, pole, ramming carts, catapults, etc. You use repair men, archers, magicians, and your loyal, old finger to flick, blast, bomb and stab the attackers. There’s multiple levels to the game, obviously getting harder and harder. As well as the stick figures attacking your wall they’ve employed dragons and evil, giant stick figures to help them. You gain money with which you can buy prisons, magician schools, repair shops, archery training centres and loads more. With the prison you can pick up little stick men and drop them in your cage. After a few seconds they’re are ‘captured’ and your prison becomes free again for another person. With these ‘prisoners’ you can sent out people with bombs (suicide bombers basically) and groups of 3 with shields and spears. These people can also be trained to be archers, magicians and repair men. This App is FREE to celebrate the launch of Sick Wars 2 but it may be paid again by now. It should be in the Top 25 FREE Apps in the App Store. Have a look!

Secondly, I want to seriously recommend Trinity Interactive’s, 9 in 1, Action Heroes. It’s a series game where an App producer gets a load of their games together (9 in this case) and put them all in to on App to celebrate the end of the series. Like all Trinity Interactive games, this App takes a few years to load up, but when it’s loaded, it’s truly awesome! Trinity Interactive have put a little description together as well for each game. Here they are:

  • Jailbreaker (as I mentioned in my firs App recommendation post ever) : Jump and slide your way to freedom!
  • Hot Pursuit: Get ready for road rage!
  • Climber: Latch on and escape the ruins below!
  • Tomb Evader: Escape from the top of a collapsing pyramid!
  • Hell Flyer: Grab hold while you still can!
  • iKungfu Master: Increase your strength and defeat your enemies!
  • Hired Gun: Bring a steady hand and snipe the baddies!
  • Iron Commando: Drive back the alien invaders and their control ships!
  • Star Marine: Blast away the alien hordes!

Yes, all them need an exclamation mark after the description, according to the game.

I’m afraid that’s all the App recommending I can really do today so I’ll move on.

Fonts. I love them. You get fat ones, thin ones, italic ones, famous ones, and many more. They’re also so easy to download off of the Internet and a little extracting and moving about and, viola, you have a new typeface installed! Well, as mentioned earlier, I have a cool font to let you at today! Yes, a really cool font called Burbank which is used a lot on Club Penguin. In fact, it’s used everywhere. If you want a preview of it look at the shiny DP button above. I’ve lately started using it for practically everything, It just looks so good! Oh, BTW I also used it in the animated banner above! Click HERE to download it as a .ZIP. Oh, and just to let you know you need to use Burbank Big Wide on the black setting. Black means not normal, italic, bold, or bold italic, but black, extra bold, basically.

That’s pretty much it from me, so I guess I should say bye.

Isn’t that what your supposed to write? Bye.

Yes, I’ll go for that.

Bye! Dapizz – 😀

PS: Remember to rate this post just below this! xD


Sorry, I had things to do in the real world.

Hi, Guys,

The real world. Boring when it wants to be, rainy, cold, wet, miserable if you live where I do in the UK and overall, not as interesting or half as exiting as Photoshop CS5 (which if you follow my Twitter posts, you would know, is now on my computer). Seeing as I haven’t posted in 3 long, treacherous days, I decided I would post to end the suffering out there (any suffering you know of?).

Firstly, I showed you the Dapizz YouTube nearly-an-advert type thing in my last post and I realy like it as I said. I have now nearly finished another one for Stralis33CP seeing as I was very much bored (incorrect English, tut tut tut). It doesn’t look as good as the first one yet for some reason (maybe it’s just me criticizing my own work, let’s hope so) but it’s still cool. I’ll probably be able to show you next post, within the next 3 days for sure.

Moving on, Twitter. As I’ve said a lot of times and you’re probably bored of me saying now, I’ve got back into it a lot more enthusiastically than I ever used to be. The only tweets from me that anyone ever saw were automatic ones from YouTube when I commented on YouTube. I now have a possible Twitter background request from an anonymous source (I know but I wont tell you) and I’d better get going on Photoshop. Ooh, I can’t wait.

Seeing as I’ve just brought my post to a nice close, Ill leave you to it.

Bye, Dapizz – 8)

PS: Does anyone have an idea about 3D text in Ps CS5 with Repoussé. I can’t seem to understand how to do it. Repoussé isn’t available in the 3D drop-down menu when I have a rasterised text layer selected. Help me!


Black Drippin’ Heart

Hey, Guys,

I’ve got a really cool thing for you today! It’s called (hence the title of this post) Black Drippin’ Heart. Here it is to be blaitant:

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

I love it! Yeah, that wasn’t meant to be a terrible pun back there. 😐 Oops. Anyway, I can’t really think of anything else to show you guys today. I will tell you that I have only 4 days of my Photoshop CS4 Trial left over now, though. That sucks. Is there anybody out in the vast world we live in who likes me enough to give me a FREE Photoshop CS4 serial code so I can unlock the program for good. That would be so cool! Dream on…

Think…

Keygens…Codes…Serials…Photoshop CS4…

I love drifting away into random lovely thoughts…

Anyway, as I was saying, I would love to unlock Photoshop permanently even if it isn’t Photoshop CS5 Extended or anything fancy like that. I’ve found work so much easier in CS4, for instance, it’s little things like being able to merge layers so much easier than in boring old CS1. Then again, CS1 is better than nothing, I guess.

Seeing as I’m about to drift of into Adobe wonderland again I’ll leave you alone, it proably being quite boring for you, right.

Anyhow, Bye!

Dapizz – 8)

MOO!


I’m beginning to dislike WordPress!

Hello, Loyal Followers,

I’m annoyed. I’m, as you’ve probably gathered, annoyed with WordPress. The reason being that it wont let we simply put a link to a page where my 206 message long JavaScript will instantly appear. If you don’t get what I mean, I basically want a blue click-able link to put in a post or on a page that when clicked will start up the long JavaScript I’ve been writing for the last couple of weeks. This is a really long string of alert(“”) command things in JavaScript which makes a load of little boxes appear with text inside them! You close the box but another one comes up. How annoying, right?

Well, I’ve spent weeks making the JavaScript and now I can’t find anyway of being able to open it without it going into download mode. Poo.

If anybody’s got any idea whatsoever about how I could accomplish this task then please comment on here, any of my pages, on YouTube or even Tweet me. I’d be so, so grateful!

Anyway, I’ve got to go, so bye!

Dapizz – 😀


Quite a Bit of Stuff!

Hello, Dedicated Peoples,

As you’ve probably worked out from the title of the post there’s quite a bit in store for you today! Firstly, let’s start off with what this site has become bascially dedicated to. Now what could that be, I wonder? Graphics! Yep! Even more, the stream is just endless, isn’t it. Well you probably want to look at it so I won’t keep you waiting any longer! Here it is:

It’s my normal wallpaper size so most likely you can use it as on if you like. Yes, it is a custom designed pair of Nike Dunks. I found a tutorial on how to do it and a link to the official .PSD image with a layer for every part of the shoe, hence the different colours for different parts. The shoe was so fun to make and it was so easy that I thought I’d put a video on YouTube of me doing it in super-speed mode. Watch it if you don’t know what super-speed is, you may get a little idea forming…

And seeing as I’m feeling really nice today and feel like treating you to more video I thought I’d also embed the video which showed me to colour it all in and stuff…

And you’ll obviously want the link to the original shoe file? So here it is: (Click Here!) This link actually goes to a page with a load of other really cool shoes by Nike and other firms so if you want to speed things up click here to go strait to the file!

Well, I think that’s it really. There’ll be more coming tomorrow, most likely, seeing as there’s something nearly every day! 😀

So I guess it’s bye…

Dapizz – 😀


Nothing In Particular

Hiya, Guys,

I don’t really have much for you today, I’m afraid. I’ve been doing a lot of wallpaper sized graphic type things lately and I love all of them! They’re so cool (mostly)! If you want to look at them tough luck! No. I mean move your mouse to the top of the page and click the new link to the all new page, “1 Tonne of Graphics”. This is basically a page full of lots and lots of graphical Photoshop art. There’s iTouch wallpapers, PC wallpapers, random stuff and even a little bit more of random stuff! It’s incredible, nearly every image I’ve uploaded onto this blog since it started! Now, however much I may love constantly chatting about how amazing it is (it really is) you probably want to know more about the Apps I’ve downloaded and stuff like that. So that’s what I’ll talk about! 🙂

Recently I haven’ really been downloading many Apps. Recently means the past few months really! It just doesn’t have that magic about it anymore really! Sad, I know. Although, I do have a few I would like to recommend:

1.Heads Will Roll: Even though this App really does have a ridiculously stupid name, it’s not all that bad. It’s FREE (maybe I have the Lite version) and it’s basically lie Falldown. All you have to do is tilt your devis to roll the balls through each storey of lines, if you get what I mean. Falldown is very good and I love the neon theme but Heads Will Roll has the feature to upload and crop an image to use as your ball. Plus there’s a background, more colour, a load of other pre-loaded balls (that sounds very wrong), more than one ball at a time and more power-ups! Awesome!

2.Glow Fighter: Pretty simple but it’s cool, based on a neon theme like Falldown and you get to choose from two spaceships and then you get to shoot random shapes flying around in space! I’ve only played it once but it was great fun and I’ll be on it again soon!

3. I know it sounds lame but nothing else I’ve downloaded was really worth mentioning!

Oh, BTW I have finished The Annoying JavaScript now and it has 206 messages! Ho cool, or not? Anyway, a link maybe tomorrow because I’m being nagged to come off the laptop!

See ya!

Bye, Dapizz – 😀

PS: Does anyone know a good place to go for a FREE 100%-CSS-editable JavaScript-enabled web-host?


My First Pissingly-Annoying JavaScript

Hiya, Peoples,

Yes, I have started to learn JavaScript. Today I have a little JS .HTML document to share with you and to annoy you. It’s not that long or annoying but it’s my first one and it only took a few minutes so…EERRMM…enjoy isn’t exactly the right word…

Yeah, you have to click here for it…:/

Were you annoyed? You may have heard of the more famous, ‘Most Annoying Website in the World’. Well, some people realised that if you play the .HTML in Google Chrome or Opera instead of IE, Safari, Firefox, Lunascape, etc. you are offered a little check-box in the window that appears that says ‘Prevent this page from creating additional dialogue boxes’. Obviously this ruins the entire point of the thing, to make you endure pointlessness for ever…

But I’ve managed to solve that annoying (for me) error (couldn’t think of a better word instead of ‘error’). I’ve contacted Google and they have given me a snippet of JavaScript that will disable this feature, so you must endure the pain no matter what browser you use! 😀

Anyway, I will bring out a better one with more annoyance later in the week so bye for now…

Dapizz – 😀

PS: OOPS, not exactly what I wanted with the .HTML code link thingy…

PPS: Another awesome stop frame animation I found:


Yabber-Yob

Hello,

How are you today, reader? Good? I am. I’ve just got home from London Stansted airport because I was in Germany. I had to go to a funeral in my family…

But seeing as you wouldn’t be interested in that kind of thing I will share some graphics with you that, really, should be vector graphics, not raster. Here be the graphics:

I used the pen tool a lot and the ‘Snap To Grid’ feature. The pen tool really is one of the best tools on Photoshop and I highly recommend you watch some tutorials or something if you don’t or don’t know how to use it! I have created so much with it…

Anyway I may have another something here too. Lets have a look…

AAHH Yes. This is an Elf Guy that I was taught to draw by my Mum ages ago and thought I should computerise. This was also done using the pen tool and the ‘Stroke Path’ mini feature. Seeing as this is hardly what you were expecting (well I very much doubt it) I will let you at something else on my hard-drive. Here be it:

Like it? It is kind of a copy of what Windows made for Vista’s wallpaper collection, except I did it and I also added glossiness to make t 100 times better! It’s 800×600 px. so it won’t fit for a normal computer screen for a wallpaper but if you want one made to fit a 1280×800 px. screen or any other dimensions come to think of it through me a comment…

I like comments…

Anyway, lets upload some more for you, shall we…

Pretty big…

I think it may be 1280×800 so it will fit perfectly (on most PCs) for a desktop wallpaper. I know I have even more for you so more’s on the way. Right now, in fact:

Also made to fit a normal PC screen size this particular picture is quite strange. I was experimenting during the making of the below image, and liked this so much I quickly saved it as a .PNG and continued to end up with this:

This obviously is also made to fit 128×800 dimensions. I have one more for you, this time it’s fully compatible with the Apple iTouch family devises, excluding the iPad, so you can use it as a great lock-screen background. What I was trying to say is it fits an iPod Touch or iPhone screen perfectly:

Do the same as usual, visit this page on your devise and save the image. Your very spoilt, you know. You just where given 7 images FREE for you to use at your free will! You should be very grateful…

Whatever…

If your on an iPad right now then don’t feel left out. I will soon be making iPad lock-screen wallpapers too so you can have that awesome Dapizz look wherever you are, whenever…

Stop being a show-off Dapizz…

Bye, Dapizz – 😀
