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!


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.

Dapizz – 😀

MOO!

 


Just Read The Post…

Hey, Guys,

Today I’ve got quite a bit in stock for you. I’ve got a really cool video to show you, some graphics (I think), an official launching of the new YouTube banner on my site and a even a bit of news. Here goes:

I’ve found in life if you have a selection of things the best order to go through them is best first, then with the remaining stuff go worst to bad, leaving you happy and in a good mood. I know I’m not the best graphics designer in the world for sure, but that’s probably the best stuff I have to give you today:

If you’ve ever checked out the pages, or the ‘1 Tonne of Graphics’ page in particular, you will know there’s two graffiti style wallpapers in the wallpaper section. Well, today, their new family member is going to be officially released. Here he is (if it’s a he):

Yeah I know the text is unbelievably, in-humanely, insanely chav-i-licous but to be fair enough I couldn’t think of anything better! How brainless people can be, I know.

Moving on, let’s go to the official release of the new YouTube banner, shall we. I mentioned it in the previous post on this blog which I think was only yesterday, but anyhow, it has been edited from the version I showed you guys back then and now looks like this:

I duffed up the link on this one so you click like mad but to go to the actual channel you’ll have to click on the one in the sidebar (or click the link I just gave you). That was kin of stupid but:

MY NEW YOUTUBE BANNER IS NOW OFFICIALLY RELEASED AND IN USE!

That was strange…

Moving swiftly onwards (again)…

NEWS:

There quite a bit in the news today so let’s get going (that sounded wrong):

1. I’ve sort-of started going on twitter a lot more than I used to do before. This means if you catch me on there I’ll probably reply instantly. I’m actually on Twitter whilst writing this post and there’s 8 new tweets…quick dash off to another tab then…

2. UURR…I’ve started making the new Twitter banner based on the YouTube banner except it’s obviously blue, not red, and will eventually link to my Twitter page so you can follow me and the other guys I follow. BTW until I reach 200 followers I will follow everyone who follows me! Quick. For now though, I’ve just got a quick sneak peak: (Yeah, it is huge. I didn’t bother to crop the picture.)

3. IHateMimo777.WordPress.com! Yes, that’s my new blog shared with Candense550 and dedicated to hating the stupid Club Penguin related guy, Mimo777. It was Candense550’s idea when he was at my house (if I remember correctly) so I immediately set it up on my account and we added him as an author! We should post at least once a week but what we really need is a bunch of people who would be willing to put their alias name down and form an army to take him down. Don’t ask how we take him down, we can discuss when the time comes over Twitter. A massive Twitter rave, a massive ‘everyone do their best to hack his site’ raid, a real raid on his house (anyone want to pay for my flight to America?) or whatever should do the trick! LET’S DO THIS!

I think that’s all of the news I was talking about, now let’s look at the video I was on about…

I have quite a few videos to show you, nearly all of them involving Rowan Atkinson or the TV comedy show, ‘Harry and Paul’! I know none of them have anything to do with me or anything in-on my blog but they’re really funny!

Firstly, this is a sketch called Parking Pateweyo. It’s a piss-take of Postman Pat and I love it. There’s two videos out, here they are:

Cool? The second one:

And the last one is called Mr. Psycho-Bean. As you may have guessed it’s a great piss-take of Mr. Bean:

That’s all, guys!

Bye

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!

YouTube and Twitter Banners

Heya, People,

Today I am officially releasing the new YouTube banner for my site. When the last one came out I was rubbish and in-experienced with Photoshop CS and I made a totally crap banner, put it online, and said it was good! Crazy! Well, now I’m a little more experienced with Photoshop and I’m using a trial version of Photoshop CS4. Only have 9 days of my trial left tough. :(. Anway, here is a little preview of it. I probably will work on it a little more but anyhow:

I’ll probably add a watermark type thing and maybe even more! Something interesting is forming in my head…

Anyway, you can take this one if you want and use it as your banner if you like, watermark if you want, thee’s no copyright, trademark, or any of that crap. I just got deja vu! You’ll probably have a better one, it’s not exactly hard to make if you have Photoshop, is it. This post should actually be after the post before it, but I had half finished the other one the other day, started this one today, and then realised that the other one was half finished. Whoops!

Anyhow (I use the word ‘anyway’ way too much for anybody’s good), comment telling me what you think and what you want made. I will basically make any kind of graphics custom for you that I can make for FREE and send it to you virus- free. However, this offer will only continue until I reach 10,000 hits (if I ever do). I hope I do…

That’s all really for today, really! Bye.

Dapizz – 😀


New Graphics!

Hiya, Peoples,

I’ve got to be really quick today, should be shutting down. Here is what your looking for:

Quick Facts:

  • Normal wallaper size.
  • Perfect if you want a Dapizz look. 😀
  • Drop me a comment for different text, will change for FREE!
  • Inspired by a Google Images accidental find.

Dapizz – 😀
