2013

Hello!

What a great year I’ve had so far!

I Haven’t made a post for quite some time, as Scots College produces quite a bit of homework. I thought that today was a good opportunity, as I am off today as a result of falling down a flight of about ten stairs, and “almost” breaking my left arm.  If you, right now, are thinking outside the circle, you would be wondering how I am typing.  I am typing mostly with my right hand, but when I need two hands, I use my nose!

I think that the start of this year is the best thing that has ever happened to me.  Even though it was incredulously hard, I have learned to put myself out of my comfort zone, and to find my own way home.  Scots College has changed my life, and made me a better person.  If you are sitting in school right now, thinking that college is going to be really hard, I’m not going to lie to you, it will be.  But, once you are used to it, it becomes a breeze, and you will hopefully really start to enjoy it.

I have not really been able to game very much, as College is so time consuming. But, I have been doing a little bit on my iPod, using GBA4ios I have been playing pokemon and other things. You can download it using safari and typing GBA4ios in the search thingy.

Gaming and being the nerd that lives inside, has been a bit crippled lately. I am still doing some things, but I have found something that I am sure that I will do for the rest of my life. This is Magic.

I finish on the 3rd of December, and would be delighted to come and visit you all again. I can do some Magic, Learning, gaming, and see you all again soon! I have missed you guys so much!

I saw a quote on Miss Tea’s latest post, here is my favourite

Muhammad Ali:

“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”

Comic Ideas

Recently I have been making some comic strips, and I think that if things don’t turn out with my other dreams I know where to go.  The only problem I have is that I only have a couple of ideas. The first idea is called ‘Neo’s World’ which expresses Neo’s funny ideas.  You can check out his blog here .  I have already done a comic strip for this and I’m sure there will be more to come.

The second Idea is that I could have a detective sort of series where this guy travels around the world and solves mysteries.  The third and last idea would be to have a superhero series. This would take a lot of thinking through as every great superhero needs a goodbackground story. One day I want to be drawing with Tony Daiel who helped Grant Morrison

The Life Of Brian, And The One And The Only, Uncle Christopher!

Have you ever seen a Monte Python film?  For most people my age, probably not.

In the holidays, my Aunty Sherida and Uncle Christopher came up to baby sit us, as Mum and Dad had gone to a party.Uncle had a lot to show and talk to me about, a Monte Python film, and an episode from: Carl Sagan’s COSMOS.  Episode nine, if you’re wondering.  We sat in the bottom lounge and talked about Dads life when he was a kid,  Dad can’t remember half of his child-hood, so I like to talk to my Uncles and Aunties.  We also talked a bit about Granddad and Grandma, whom I never got to meet (they died of cancer before I was born.)  Obviously, my Granddad was a very clever man.  I learnt that he assembled the first 8 track tape recorder in New Zealand!

Anyway,  in the game ”Tekkit”  that I was playing, I found an item called dark matter.  I asked him what dark matter is.  He explained that dark matter is a type of theory.  The astronomers can tell how the universe is behaving by its matter, they cant see some matter so they think that dark matter is invisible, or something like that.

DID YOU KNOW?

Gravity, happens because the earth has so much mass, that we are ”attracted” to it.

Atoms, (atoms are tiny things that make everything up) are made up of: Electrons, Protons, neutrons and a nucleus.

Dark matter is a kinda theory.

The earth travels around the sun because it is attracted by gravity.

Feel free to comment, and be sure to check out Carl Sagan!

 

Boy

I am sure that alot of you have heard and seen the movie Boy.  Well I did not see it untill…  two days ago!  Here is my favourite part of the movie where he introduces himself, I couldn’t find the scene, so here is the trailer.

A great film and if you haven’t seen it, atleast put it on your bucket list.

What First?

You may of been thinking,  TheMashUps100 STILL hasn’t put a video out!  Well here is the answer to your questioned prayers!  Just leave me a comment, and we will be putting a video out VERY VERY soon.  I have been very slack, but now we are going to start this channel.  I promise.

I was thinking that we could start off with a video on introducing the gang, and then the first episode of my ligit survival series.  We will also be doing a walkthrough of ”BATMAN- Arkham City”  so be patient and videoes will come.

Area 11

Yesterday I came across a small band called Area 11. If you have watched the ‘Screw the nether’ parody, then you may of noticed at the end there was links to other people, such as Sparkelz music. I discovered this, Sparkelz is a member of the Yogscast and is also a member of the band Area 11.  I listened to some of their songs and thought ”WOW, these guys are alright!” One of my favourite songs is probably…

Parody’s

TheMashUps100  is going to start putting out parody’s soon and Neo has already started.  You can help us by commenting and sharing what song you think we should make a parody of,  we would like them to be popular and we will come up with the lyrics.  I just woke up this morning and the Yogscast whom TheMashUps100 love have put up another parody!

Here it is, I’m sure we can beat it if we really try.

Survival series

Hello Miners and Dwarves,
I have been filming hard out over the last week, and I’ve probably covered 5-7 hours, maybe more? I would like to ask a question though, I have a lot of iron, coal and wood and I have some things I would like to do. I want to find a jungle temple, find a desert temple, and find a dungeon so I can make a good mob spawner and get lots o’ stuff. What should I do first? For those of you who are wondering, I have made an awesome tree house in a Jungle biome (and I just might leak you some pictures before the video’s start pouring out).

Any more suggestions would be much appreciated.
Happy mining,
Jordan

Batman

A while ago, me and Daniel S went to the Dark Knight Rises.  If you haven’t seen it and you like action movies I strongly suggest it.  Let me know if you’ve seen it and we’ll chat in the comments.
I would also like to read the comics.

This is my favourite film at the moment and you should go and see it.

 

Quiz: Assassins Creed

Can you answer all these questions?

When does Ezio grow a moustache in A.C2?

Who is Ezio’s uncle?

Where does Altiar live?

What is the main artefact in Altair’s library?

Why does Ezio want revenge in A.C2?

Who says this first (this is a real piece of history,): ”Nothing is true, every thing is permitted”.  Meaning: ”To say that nothing is true, is to realize that the foundations of society are fragile, and that we must be the shepherds of our own civilization. To say that everything is permitted, is to understand that we are the architects of our actions, and that we must live with their consequences, whether glorious or tragic.”

Who is your favourite templar?

If you can answer these questions mostly without Wikipedia, and you are not Cameron I’ll be impressed.
