A PROPosterous LAY #20

Wohoo twenty! But the first one is not even on the website for some confounding reason so when we celebrate our anniversary of LAY it’ll be for the second one.

I was going to a write one of my kind of serious, long, introspective posts but I am sleepy and don’t want to do anything wrong. So today you will get a Life and You, the very self explanatory series that I still find the need to explain. Basically talking about life, cool things, and talking to you, about you, behind your back. Though definitely not the last one!

Last LAY (well two LAYs ago, 19 was weird) the question was what time do you prefer most (day, night, midnight, the elusive mid-morning sunset) and the answers were

Night Time from: bittersweetlyirrevocable, Legendary randomness, and EclecticMusicLover

And 5 in the morning from: the_great_awesome. Props to you for being original!

And props to everyone who commented!

Props to everyone who read the last post too!

And props to you for reading this post!

Also props to you if you live on the planet Earth!

I can’t forget props to all humans!

Jamie spent 45 minutes propping up everything except the house he was building. The resulting slant in the house created a permanent dutch tilt for all residing in the abode. But after residence left the house the entire world seemed like a dutch tilt. The only ‘normal’ world was that crooked house Jamie built, and that slowly drove everybody in the house insane. They all mysteriously disappeared one day, and nobody knows why. Redundancy aside, legend has it that the ghosts of all patrons of the house whisper in directors’ ears, telling them to add dutch tilts into all movies they make. Soon, one day, all movies will consist of entirely dutch tilts. How do I know this? Well, I am a dutch tilt.Image result for scary dutch tilt

Hey, what are you doing in my post?

Uhh..nothing.

How you been filling my audience’s heads with lies about your ‘dutch tilt ghosts’?

Nooo…

I told you, that house was built on a slope, there was nothing I could do!

Ok fine, fine. I’ll leave!

Okay, thanks. Well guys, lets just continue the post with Li-

Jamie unleashed the ghosts upon the world, soon I will be in all of cinema. Comedy, drama, romance, whatever the heck the emoji movie is! Dutch Tilts EVERYWHERE! Okay I’m done, get back to your post.

I have gotten back from TIP, and TIP Life is going to be released Mondays and Thursdays until the series is over. I don’t exactly know how long the series is going to be because I don’t plan very far into the future but Mondays and Thursdays right here on Riley’s Backpack. Also

remember that? A podcast with me, my brother, and more often than not Riley? Well my brother and I have been brian storming (not a typo, a way of life) and we are starting production hopefully within 2 weeks. Rest assured Riley will be brought in for the process starting when I see him in the future.

And I also cleaned my room, exercised, and fell asleep today. More than I do on most days!

Hmm..

Oh right, we went school supply shopping yesterday! And I was so confident I picked up 2 graphing paper notebooks and walked out of the Target without a SINGLE LINED RING NOTEBOOK. I truly believe that the odd choices and decisions I have made are going to be majorly important when I get on a large plane flying from Australia to the US and crash land on an unknown island, so writing this kind of mishap down could be very helpful to be in the future.

That finishes up LML!

Question Time

This may sound like an off topic question for this LAY (probably because it is) but what do you think of ticket scalpers? Love ’em, hate ’em, feel some other emotion towards ’em, comment it below!

And before I forget, the winning Paul McCartney from Life and You 19 is…

Early/Mid Solo Paul and Wings Paul

Personally a Paul I got to know more recently but really really enjoy listening to.

Well technically Ringo Starr won with 7 votes but I took the highest serious choice. I guess I know not to add silly answer choices now because you guys CHOOSE THEM EVERY TIME! So yeah, thanks to everyone who voted!

is out in Pokemon Go now, and I recently came into several premium raid passes. So tomorrow I’m going to go out on a raiding spree and make a Pokemon Go Pokemon Post! Also my adventures a couple of days ago with Pokemon will be in that post! So look for that Wednesday!

 

And yes, this disproves the uno, dos, tres theory about the legendary birds, but it also means Niantic is sticking to the catches by players on that team. So bringing up the rear Instinct will have Zapdos in 2 weeks (August 14). Lugia appears to still be spawning, so there is still hope for me on that front.

While we are on the subject of mobile games, my lack of Clash RoyaleImage result for clash royale

has merely been a lack of playing and a lack of interest. To me the game is kind of getting stale and the only fun thing is 2v2 if the person is with you IRL. I don’t know, maybe the new cards will make it better.

On that note the super special extra long LAY #20 is over. Thank you if you read this post all the way through that Dutch Tilt section, and thanks for reading my Life and You posts for 20 episodes. Although in the archives I can’t find the first Life and You, so if you locate it please, PLEASE let me know.

Goodbye everyone, and as I once said in a long lost episode of The Nerd and His Brother:

The Dutch angle, also known as Dutch tiltcanted angle, or oblique angle, is a type of camera shot where the camera is set at an angle on its roll axis so that the shot is composed with vertical lines at an angle to the side of the frame, or so that the horizon line of the shot is not parallel with the bottom of the camera frame. This produces a viewpoint akin to tilting one’s head to the side.

haha riley no more canted angle dictionary taboo for you!

Shamelessly fighting in the view of the wars

A list of all the things I love:

 

Disney, in particular Disney Channel

Nintendo, always wearing flannel

Poems and Science

Beauty, not lice!

And also most definitely reading and WordPress

Music, but I digress

Whats most important to me

Is just blogging, can’t you see?

And although this isn’t up to my creative standard

I lost my library card (specifically the lanyard)

I can pull views

With this cheap ruse

So forgive me, the next real post is Monday

I hope you enjoyed my last real post, right here you can find it

So goodbye and now I have realized, I stole Riley’s idea right under his eyes.

So as I am legally required to disclose:

Sorry!

Back To School Soccer Match

School is like that one friend who is there when you wanna be alone, and is busy when you are lonely.

Bryan and Mia were here today, so we were able to do a 3v3 soccer match. Bryan used to play a lot of soccer, but he stopped for like a year and we were pretty evenly matched. For the first match, we did boys vs girls, and we beat Katie, Saoirse, and Mia with like 6 points more than them, but for the second match we made things more even. It was Brendan, Mia, and me, VS Bryan, Katie, and Saoirse. I scored 2 points and so did they, and it was getting pretty late so we decided that the next point would finish it. I nearly scored, but Mia got bored and left, so I wasn’t able to pass, so I had to shoot from a weird angle. Katie (goalie) picked it up and threw it all the way into our goal 😵

Also, my brother has made more songs on the cloud of sound, and my sister made one that you should totally make a 10 hour loop of and blast your headphones with it while you sleep.

I haven’t seen any entrees yet ;-; 

P.S.I tried to post this earlier this morning and I even got a notification that said it posted.

YOU LIED TO ME

Adventure To Fate! Battle Arena E3: Feelin’ Fruity

Hello,

 SNEAKY PEAKY TIME I’ll make more Cheese comics soon 😀

But anyways, today I’m making the third episode of this game, and by now we’re in round 20 of the first arena! Banana Man! Is on his way to victory! 

We’re up against two Fruit Bats!


*realizes he forgot to heal last time*

Oh well, let’s try to win this! I activate stealth, giving me another turn, I then stab the first bat twice. The first bat then tries to leech my health but misses, and the second bat attacks, doing 13 damage. I’m down to 30 HP! I stab the first bat twice more, and he dies, then I cast Blind on the second bat so he has a small chance of hitting me. He tries to attack but misses I stab three more times, nearly killing him. He attacks, dealing 9 damage, and I stab him once more, finishing him.

After that I HEALED. And I drank like 9 light healing potions to do it. I also considered buying a Vine Wrapped Dagger, but it only deals up to 5 damage, which is pathetic compared to STAB. I wander around the room, and see a treasure chest, so I look inside. But there’s just a little description of it, and I find out it cost 200 fate gems. I only have 48 ;-;

But yea I’m bored of this game for the day soooo YEAA. See you all in the next post!

Pokémon Go and Staying Safe!!

​Hello there, i’m Riley and you’re a human. Or are you? (⊙_⊙)

Anyways i’m here today to give you a guideline to know when and when not to “Go” outta the house.

Haha get it yknow because its Pokémon GO.

Nevermind..

But anyways i’ve been playing a lot of this game lately. And well, if it’s available in your country and you have an internet connection, you’ve probably heard about it too. 

For those of you who don’t know, Pokémon Go is a new mobile game made by Niantic featuring all your favorite Pokémon from ye olden days. Only now they are all over your world :O :O

Your goal? Conquer the gyms, gather items, and most importantly, enslave small creatures and force them to fight eachother in controlled battles!!

But yea, the thing about this game is that to capture your animals, you actually have to leave the house and walk around your city or town. Now this may not seem safe, so its reccomended that if you’re a parent to stay with your kids while they are exploring the world around them.

Another worry is how hot it is in some parts of the world. But remember Riley’s rule of temprature.

Over 85, play the Hive (MC server)

Yea so.

Watch out.

The heat..

Its coming for you!!

And don’t forget the possibility of walking into a busy road while being caught up in the game! Always be safe my cheeses!!!!

If you are interested in knowing, I am a Level 6 trainer, and so far on my Pokémon journey have caught 43. I have walked a total of 6.85 miles in the last 5 days while playing this game, and my best Pokémon is my Pidgeotto who has CP 178, HP 42.

If ya liked the post then tell me so in the comments!! If you didn’t do the same thing only suggest something else to write about!

TH 9

I know I already made a Clash of Clans post today, but I just wanted you to know I got to Masters League with that barracks boost, I got my thousand gems, I gemmed my TH 9 upgrade, and am now in Gold 2 farming to get the Archer Queen. So if you care, there’s an update on my Clash of clans life.

Quest for Masters League!

So yea it’s me again. I mean who else would be here. Maybe Maz or James. But yea it’s me.

ANYWAYS


Couple days ago I decided to push for masters league, and let me tell you, Crystal 1 is agonizing. I’ve been in 2500-2580 for the last 2 days trying to push myself out of this league of farming TH 9s and 10s. There are barely any TH 8s up here, but every once and a while I find one and destroy it utterly. Oh, in my base news, I’m pretty much maxed TH 8 and I’m upgrading to TH 9. But I boosted my barracks while writing this post and so everyone couple minutes I’ll get interrupted by, Your Troops Are Ready For Battle!!

So, I’m using GoWiPe, and I’m wondering if anyone knows a better attack to boost me past max TH 9s. So yea, I’ll leave this post at that.

Fasting and Trivial Pursuit

Today I decided to fast (not eat). And ya wanna know why? No reason, I just wanna see what it’s like without food for a day. But I woke up this morning and my brother and sister were eating cocoa rice stuff, and they were like, 

Ahhhhh this is sooooooo good! 

So everyone is against me. 

In other news, yesterday my neighbor Katie came over and me and her and Brendan and Saoirse played trivial pursuit on the Xbox. Guess who won 2/3 rounds? That’s right, RILEY 😀

I got lucky on a question where you had to select all the members of the Justice League,so that gave me an extra couple thousand.

If you dont like theses quick posts that I write about MYYYY life, you can always check out my longer ones where I write about other things. Like my Star Wars Parody. Or if ya like books I redirect you to my Review of The War That Saved My Life.

But yea, just in case you don’t like short posts, your happy now. 

Baiiiiiiii

The Advantages of Video Games — Part 2

I’m back again to talk to you about video games, and the pros and cons of playing Strategy and Dancing games! Last time we talked about Fighting and Puzzle, so if you want to get to Part One, Click Here. If not the keep reading..

So first off, Strategy games, such as Clash of Clans, Civilization, and of course, the Bloons Tower Defense series! Strategy-type games are one of the biggest staples in gaming, with Clash of Clans having over twenty million players, and Civilization V once being the 3rd most played game on Steam. But what makes these games tick? There’s always one thing that connects them all. Economy. I know you were probably expecting something like cartoon-styled violence, but no, it’s actually the power of being able to control your own Economy that snags people most of the time. Who wouldn’t want to build thier own city? Who doesn’t want to match their amazing empire against others, to see who has the best, or the most of something. One of the great things about strategy games is that they are almost always multiplayer compatible, meaning you can play with your friends, great right? Sometime’s its not great.

The biggest PROBLEM in Strategy games is the all-too-real threat of addiction, and then (such as in Clash of Clans’s Gems), in-app purchases. That’s why you need to watch out for kids playing these games, because if they are playing on your phone connected to your Credit Card account, they could take out some serious cash, just to get some in-game items. For example, two kids in Canada bought 3000$ worth of gems with their mother’s card number.

Next up, Dancing Games!

Who hates to dance?

Nerd Me: I do! I do!

Shut up you..

Anyways, dancing games are one of the few genres that can literally have no negative dangers, or things to watch out for. Unless you put in your credit card number into your Wii, (and who on Earth is doing that), there’s ZERO chance your kids will buy anything. Dancing games are a great way to stay fit, and games like Just Dance also encourage you to learn the words to the songs. I’m pretty sure that’s going to help annoy people while riding in the car with the radio on. But other than possibly passing out from dancing exhaustion.

So that’s that for this post, next up, Shooters and RPGs.
