BACON in Minecraft! continued!

I have been working on the bacon mod for some time now, and today I updated it to work on 1.0.0, and it works for a single player server! I even built a house out of bacon!
The bacon sword is enchantable too! When I am done, I will post a link to download.

BACON in Minecraft!

I am going to start by saying it is terribly late, and so this post is not going to be long, but I thought I should share. I had the idea to make my own food item in minecraft, partially due to the science club at my school, but also just because I have been wanting to do some minecraft modding. And so that is what I did.
 Look it is bacon! I made that thing!
I actually got this pork meat by slaying a pig with a slice of bacon. #ohtheirony
I made it where if you put in a cooked pork chop, you can get out 4 slices of bacon, and each one gains you one hunger icon. So a net gain of 1 hunger icon!
And for those of you who don't know, this stuff it really complicated to do. Loads of Java and compiling and debugging had to occur, and even a few formn posts.
But anyway, It doesn't look to pretty right now, but I think I can change the look soon to make it look a little better. And right now, this is in a client server, and I will try to put it in a multiplayer server as soon as possible, and upload it to PlanetMinecraft, which will be awesome.

Trolls Trolling

So I was around the internet, reading about the release of the development of GTA5, and one article mentioned some of the hopes and wishes they hoped to see in this new GTA game, and then asked anyone else to post anything they wanted to have in the new game. And what are the comment threads to anything without a few trolls?

Ha, this just made me laugh when I saw this. Enjoyz.

The Lone Bear in Minecraft!

I have been trying to put some mods into Minecraft, and found an excellent mod called Mo'Creatures (which, as I am sure you can surmise, puts more animals into the game!) which you can find here. As I scoured the face of this 16bit world, I came across a plethora of kittens, but then to my ultimate surprise, found The Lone Bear among a flock of sheep.
It was quite a challenge lining up the sign and the bear, especially because I am still running 1.8.1, and half the time the signs are just black, but it was well worth the time. I delved even further to get a closer look, a risky move yes, but one that had to be done.
And yes, the view distance is on 'tiny', because my computer doesn't run too quick.

Well, I am off to go build a fortress before I am consumed by creepers, or mountain lions.

This is a comic inspired by my violin mentor, who is quite fond of puns.

Keep This in Mind

This was one of the ideas that I mentioned I thought up during my sabbatical. Enjoy.

Lenin Would be Proud

I have been awful busy latley with school starting, and I still have had ideas of a multitude of postable things and stuff, but never enough time to draw these ideas. But finally I was harrised enough by a certain Ham Man and Johnny of Cakes, that I was convinced to post again. So here it goes. Maybe I can keep it up.

Anti-Piracy Ad

So I am sure you have all seen this anti-piracy ad in the movie theaters a few years back.
Which is all good and fine. But I have been watching a grand show called "The IT Crowd", in which there was a, different, anti-piracy ad. Watch them both.
This is a good show, and I recommend it. But for now I just can post this. I will do more soon.

Monday, August 8, 2011


Yeah, so I have been busy. I might be able to start updating soon. Until then, enjoy.
By the way, I did this in MS Paint. True story.

App Review: Tiny Tower & Songify

have been unable to post for a few weeks, due to my sabbatical in Europe, but now that I have returned, a few things are in order. First, I have not done an app review in quite a while, so I have chosen two apps that are featured in the app store right now, the game Tiny Tower, and the music-esque app Songify. Let's start with the former.

Tiny Tower
This is a game where you build floors on a 24-bit style tower, where you can get tenants called bitizens (ha, it is like a pun) who you can get to work for you in your shops that you also open up. All of these things earn you money, and then you spend the money on more floors and restocking your shops.
For those people who like objectives in games, such as clearing levels where you fire defenseless birds at pigs, with the intent to slaughter the pigs, for a not so heinous crime, then this game might not be for you. I guess game is categorized as a "simulation" game. Maybe you are simulating if you were all powerful, and you used all of that power to build a really tall tower. I don't know. This game is also great because you can close it out, (or leave it in the background) and you will still earn points and things. This game is probably just for the casual gamer who, while waiting for the bus could restock things, and build towers, and see how much progress you have achieved. Then again, you could also get to work on green pig genocide, but the choice is yours.
All in all, despite the fact that I have not yet seen one bear, the animation style and gameplay has earned this app a worthy 8/10, and it is most worth getting, if you enjoy games.

Songify is one of those new newfangled apps that can be used to make yourself sound musical. All you do is speak into the device, and it adds a backtrack, and tunes your voice to sound slightly techno-like. If you use your iPod/iPhone just for messing around, or if you actually like singing, this app would probably be great for you. Also, this app is generally free, which can strengthen the appeal over it's paid counterparts. It generally is quite fun to play with, but the overall effect can fade terribly fast, because of the backtracks that are offered, only about 3 are free, and the rest you must pay for. In my opinion, apps should either be free, or paid. Not trick you with some crazy gimmick. But besides that, you can have a a little bit of fun with this app, but I do not know if there is any lasting appeal present.
This app certainly did not have any bears, and it received a 5/10.

Also, speaking of reviews, I stumbled across this great site where this guy reviews movies using only haikus. That is worth checking out. You can find it here.

Harry Potter, I Guess..

See, I don't see what the big deal is. Everyone I know is getting really excited over something they are calling "The Harry Potter".
I mean, maybe it's just me. My less than ecstatic intrest in pottery is just prohibiting me from getting all that enthusiastic over this concept.

iPhone 4: Better Than Sliced Bread!

This is a comic I drew just today, after I had an idea about this. And how it came up in context in our conversation. While geocaching! so enjoy!

Simpsons and Calvin's Father

So I found this video on stumbleupon, and it was good enough that I thought I might share it. I also found a few Calvin and Hobbes comics, the link is here if you want to check it out on the original page.

AC: Revelations

So just while on the internet, I found this theatrical trailer, that is probably the greatest trailer I have seen for a game. Given, I know the graphics are not this great in the actual game, but theatrical trailers are super amazing because they show you things that cannot actually happen in the game, but are amazing to watch anyway. It is almost like a small movie.
Because I forgot to mention, this is Assassins Creed Revelations. It seems to me that there are an awful lot of assassins creeds now. I mean, why do they have so many Creeds? The world may never know.
And because this wasn't a real post, I will post again later today.

Angry Birds Live

Well I said I wasn't a huge fan of Angry Birds, but I respect it as a popular game, and I just found this this morning, so this was worthy of a post.
Also, while I am on the topic of Angry Birds, if you use Chrome, (like I am now), you can download an app for Chrome that is Angry Birds! Here that is right here! So that's it for now.
Personally, I don't see what the deal is. Pigs are really pretty cool. Maybe it's the fact that they're green.

Stormtrooper Stencil!

So I have not had that much to do lately, so this caused me to make a stencil of a stormtrooper and then spraypaint it around town. So here was the first attempt.

This was just on the inside of my garage, so I didn't apply too much paint, so it is slightly faint here. And then today, I went down to the bridge and made a few like this one below.

This was not the freshest of them, but I did take a picture of this one. there was a proper army by the time we were done, all along the base of the bridge, and the beams beneath and proper wall for graffiti next to it. And making stencils is easy enough, I encourage you to make your own and decorate your town!

Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal

There is this great webcomic on the internet that I read, that I finally decided I should mention on my own blog, called, as I'm sure you can guess from the title, Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal. It does have a slight undertone of math science and things, but that is what makes all comics great. So here are a few that I have found recently that I like, and there are countless more, but I could not find all of the greatest ones at first glance. Feel free to read them all!

And there are loads more, so feel free to check it out here!

The Anomaly

So here is a story I wrote, enjoy.

The Anomaly

The sudden flash of brilliant light awoke Braxton just before 3 am, a peculiar time for a brilliant flash of light in uptown Manhattan. Braxton was accustomed to police sirens and gunshots in the night air, so it was not as if any dissonant tone or occurrence would be any shock to him, but it was the sudden absence of this white noise that instinctively sent a signal to Braxton’s subconscious, informing him of this oddity. It puzzled him in that instant, but that confusion quickly turned to apprehension when the realization of this aberrant occurrence sunk into the innermost part of his consciousness. Braxton was instantaneously alert, and scrambled out of his loft and up to his penthouse window, across the cold hardwood floor. Braxton’s response to the sight that greeted him was a mixture of unfathomable horror and desolate alienation. Braxton suddenly fell to the floor in a unconscious state of shock, a product of the sight that had just befallen him. Hours from that point, Braxton realized just how much of a mistake this was.

For the second time in seven hours, Braxton awoke as a result of the lustrous anomaly, the primary alliteration was the additional splitting headache from the crippling effect of the shock. He wearily shuffled to his lavatory only to be faced with his disheveled appearance. The cause of this product did not immediately occur to Braxton, for many mornings he had awoken in a disorderly state, ordinarily as a result of his profession as a chaos mathematician or feuding with his late wife. He ran the frigid water of the faucet with the intent to splash it upon his face, and as he did, looked into his own reflection. It occurred to him that an aberrancy from his standard routine from the previous night was illogical, for he had too much at stake for today, and as his thoughts started to form coherent conclusions in his mind, he was confronted with the complete extent of his horrid situation. It dawned on him that his faucet had never actually started, and his appearance was shaded by the lack of light in his penthouse. As Braxton listened for even trace evidence that his faucet may just be stopped, he noticed the utter lack of noise in his environment, an odd occurrence. Illuminated only by the sunlight through the morning facade of clouds allowed to shine only by his open window, Braxton realized this too was atypical of his behavior. Braxton himself had been paranoid at the thought of theft, due to his current place of residency, and his financial status. It still had not occurred to Braxton that his watch was stopped at 2:58 am and the typical luminescence of his alarm clock or house fan had been omitted from his morning. Braxton approached his open window as a chilling breeze went through his window, and brushed against him. Slightly agitated by the lack of heat in his penthouse, Braxton impetuously shut the frame on his window, without allotting time to look beyond the curtain. This was Braxton’s second fatal mistake of the morning.

Burdened by his anomalous awakening, Braxton strode over to his elevator, still distracted by the pulsing pain in his head, and attempted feverishly to conjure the justification behind his lack of composition that morning. Despite his line of work, Braxton was tormented by a sense of underlying order, and found vexation behind error in his own practice. Braxton pressed the down button, and absentmindedly started to concentrate on his recent theory of subjectivity that had recently plagued his every thought. From a subjective viewpoint, the mind is just a reciprocal method of conveying certain interpretations of reality. The lack of any of these reciprocals that correlates and materializes all visual aspects of society could result in catastrophic mental instability, triggered by any exceedingly complex increments of data exposed to the insufficient amount of comprehensible information feasibly accepted by the human subconscious. Any one person could never comprehend the realization that the reality that faces them is not actually reality at all, but a mental projection of.... Suddenly it dawned on Braxton that minutes had passed, and the elevator had since yet to arrive. Heavily dependent on modern technology and the society in which any insufficient innovation was inevitably rendered obsolete within months, Braxton could not afford to wait any longer, and decided it would be highly more efficient at that rate to take the stairs. Upon that thought, Braxton happened to glance at his IWC Grande Complication watch, concerned that he might arrive at work too late to catch Melony still working in the laboratory. As he commenced his time consuming walk down to the lobby, Braxton was assaulted with a situation of perplexing bewilderment. The face of his watch read an impossible statistic, for Braxton knew it was not already 2:58 pm. As Braxton skipped steps down flights of stairs, the continuation of Braxton’s odd situation again made itself present in the foremost part of Braxon’s consciousness. Such an expensive watch had never been know to fabricate any such statistic, and Braxton had purchased this watch specifically for its inapt ability to be void of fault.

As Braxton stepped through the door to the main lobby, he was again granted the utmost conviction of alienation. The lobby was a desolately barren of any human activity, a sight Braxton had never witnessed in the entire five years he had resided in this building. He had expected to speak to the doorman on his way out, asking of the eerie chilling sensation he had felt all morning, but instead was only greeted by the hazy luminance spilling through the atrium of the glass façade. As Braxton cautiously but impatiently walked through the empty lobby, again, his theory flashed through his mind, and his headache only increased with the addition of the uncensored exposure to the lucid effulgence. How would one know if that individual had slipped into the void of anti-reality? As illogical as any element of existence may decide to present itself in interpretation, the intermediary intended to convey reality would not acknowledge any anomaly or irregularity. Said person would not undergo any evident mental difference, and might not even notice that certain occurrences did not coincide...

Braxton stepped out of the open lobby, and was instantly hit with a torrent of thoughts, brought on by a brilliant light in the sky, specifically the one from approximately 2:59 am. Suddenly, Braxton considered the option that it might not be a coincidence that the events that had befallen him in the past 24 hours coincided with his research. As Braxton undauntedly turned to face the incandescent anomaly, he regained exposure, and gained complete comprehension of the events that had befallen. The mistake Braxton had fallen victim to was ever considering that his own theory of reality was his.

Mustache Humor!

Ok, a bit of explanation, This comic does not have colour because I was forced to use MS paint to draw it, and I have not actually used mspaint since I obtained Windows 7, but they happen to have inserted an extra feature where around every line it gives a little bit of shades of gray and white, to make it blend into the page. What photoshop refers to as "feathering" although instead of adding it after I save it as a jpg, it does it automatically, immediately. So when I try to add colour, it just does not work at all. So MS paint has failed us again. anyway, enjoy the comic!

Mouse Guard! Final!

So now that I have kept you in suspense, the final part of Mouse Guard is here!
The other parts are....

So again, this is just a portion of the excellent work of mouse guard, you can find the rest in books and things! "Who needs a book when you have the entire internet?" you may be asking yourself, and to that a valid response may be required. Anyway, today, Saturday May 21 2011 was supposed to be the rapture, but that doesn't seem to be happening. But I mean, would you really believe an "end-of-the-world" prediction from this guy? So enjoy Mouse Guard!

If We Don't, Remember Me

The Seventh Seal

One important thing, you cannot see the images actually move unless you click on the images. So click on them!

So I found this while on Stumbleupon, and decided that this was worthy of re-blogging! It is a blog, I guess a Tumblr (oh -hoho, Tumblr...) called If We Don't, Remember Me that simply takes certain moments from classic movies, and turns them into gif files.. Now that is amazing. I also liked this one, due to the slight movement of the characters.
The Pink Panther
Or more aggressive movements are good too. It just amazes me the transition between the frames, for in the one below I cannot even see where it was stitched and cut. Great skill.
The Shining
 So feel free to check out that blog, and remember to comment on these posts, which is quite easy, and everyone likes to comment on stuff!

The Office!

So last week on The Office, Dwight becomes active manager and things ensue, but the one thing I wanted to point out is that in one scene, he is given a holster, and walks into the office carrying a loaded gun, and everyone gets really uncomfortable.
Everyone is questioning him and so Phyllis suggests "You could put your cell phone in it instead", which is quickly dismissed, but I myself wondered if this was a reference to the UK Office where Gareth Keenan, the original version of Dwight, comes in to the office wearing a holster with his cell phone in it.
Seeing as references to the original have been made before, this is not that much of a stretch.
Also, this thought for a comic occurred to me while driving today. enjoy!

Mouse Guard! pt. 3!

Well, as the third and penultimate comic for mouse guard, I worked on the formatting so it fits what was actually on the page quite accurately! Anyway, expect some cool stuff from a blog post later.
