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!

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 – 😀

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!

 


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…

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?


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 – 😀


Pure Carbon Fibre

Hiya, Graphicy People,

Today I have some awesome carbon-fibre-effect wallpapers for you, 100% FREE! Here they are. The top one has been made to perfectly fit as a PC wallpaper, 1280 pixels by 800 pixels (1280×800). The second, however has been custom made to fit perfectly on an iPod Touch or iPhone screen (480×320), just great for the locked screen picture (basically a wallpaper). BTW I don’t know whether the iPhone 4 may have different screen dimensions. I know it has higher resolution with retina display but that’s different, if you have one, try it out.

Anyway, the pictures:

Pretty cool, huh?

Now, for the iPhone and iPod Touch…

Take them! Just right-click and ‘Save Image As’. For the iTouch one it would probably be easier to visit this page on your devise. Hold your finger on the picture for 3 seconds and a menu will appear at the bottom. Tap ‘Save Image’ then to set it as your unlock screen picture got into Settings>Wallpaper>Saved Photos>(This Picture)>Set. Check again and it will be your picture on the lock screen. Also iPod Touch 3rd Generation, iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 users can set it as there home-screen background! Just do the same except tap ‘Set Home Screen Wallpaper’ or ‘Set Both’ when it asks you. Please use them…

Ok, So your wandering what font I used…

Look no further. In both of the wallpapers I used a graffiti style font called Stylin’ BRK. It was a FREE font I downloaded just this morning from Dafont. I also got another one, El Font Urban Calligraphy. Here’s a preview of it:

Anyway, Here are the download links. They’re linked directly to the files so you shoul just be able to click the link and the download will immediately begin:

El Font Urban Calligraphy

Stylin’ BRK

There you go. Now you should be extremely thankful! Whatever…

I think that all really for today…

Bye, Dapizz – 😀


They Should Remove Title Feature

Hiya, The People,

I mean Peoples!

Anyway, I’m sorry I haven’t been posting for ages. I was away on a cycling holiday in Belgium! Chocolate! Yep, loads of it.

I had to go for a whole week without my iPod! How dangerous, I know! Luckily my iQuarium goldfish type fish, Fishy the fish, just survived the 6 day without being fed! He was practically white though, and the App did say something like ‘Your fish does have feelings, you know.’ Fair enough…but I’m afraid it doesn’t. It’s only a piece of digital code, right?

I’ve got back into Line Rider again now. This time though I am using the .SWF that I downloaded off of a site using the Firefox Plugin, Un-Plug. How ironic! It basically scans the page and lets you download all the media on that page that it can find, mostly flash video, embedded widget type things and .SWFs. I should hopefully be posting the official video of the New Era. After all my other Line Rider tracks were deleted I have started all over again, better then ever.

Sorry, can’t really be bothered to write anymore, want to get to my Line Rider. He has been sitting inside his snowy hut watching TV too long now and needs to get back on the slopes.

Bye, Dapizz – 😀

PS: Thanks for the 207 hits by the way. Keep them coming!


More Graffiti!

Hello, Graffiti Artists,

I know…another graffiti in the same day. The other one wasn’t totally today’s work, in fact it hardly was at all! Well this one was totally today’s. It is called GEB for a slightly (when you have seen it) obvious reason. The three letters can mean anything, not like BEL (Behind Enemy Lines) who is a totally awesome graffiti artist who I think is in in Sweden.

Anyway here is the picture. It has been edited in Photoshop a bit to get rid of loads of weird crap around the edges that I don’t want. I hope you like the final product:

Like It? I love it! Comment on the…UUMM…(‘on the matter.’ sounds way too formal).

If you are looking for a really cool App then head for FitIt. Basically you just have to put the different shapes of different colours into the square and hope they fit perfectly. If not restart or muddle them around. There are 4 difficulties (Easy, Medium, Hard and Expert), each with 25 levels (I think) and I’m finding it challenging and hard at the 15th or so Medium! It was FREE for  limited time, may not be anymore. Have a look!

Bye…

Dapizz – 😀


UUMM…Just Another Post, Really

Hi,

First things first. Here is an awesome video of a hacked version of the amazing popular online car game, Need For Madness. If you haven’t ever played it in your life you’re missing out on something. Quick, click here! NOW! Anyway, the video:

Cool huh? And whilst I’m on the NFM topic, there is a new version of it out; Need For Madness 2 (or Toooo !?, as the developer put it). The link to the game I put above is to this version, with toally new music, cars and updated tracks! Check It Out!

Moving On, on the App side of life (or mine anyway), Glow Puzzle Lite! This is basically a game where the player has to join a load of dots together with set lines without using a line more than once! Do you get what I mean? I hope so…here is a picture (it is not mine, credit to Google Images and wp.appadvise.com.)

And on top of that a picture of the App icon:

High Resolution (.PNG) as well! 😀

Also in the App News, Phone Secure, one of those iPhone/iPod Touch finger-print security Apps that are actually fake! This one is good though, it doesn’t scream and flash a huge picture of a Zombie’s face at you (no offence, Zombies, you’re beautiful!) and then say ‘Access Denied’. And it was, maybe not any more, FREE!

I also have another 3 of pictures to share with you today! Ones I have made on my iPod with another great App, called PhotoChop (not Shop). Here they are:

Hope you’re begging for another post!
