Free Lunch #61 (Nintendo Switch Edition!)

Hello there you congratulatory glass shards. Today is Tuesday, which means it’s time for another Free Lunch! If you don’t know what Free Lunch is, I just get on either my laptop or phone and try to type for five minutes without stopping. I’m on my laptop today so the post will be slightly longer than usual. I’m a tad late, but that’s only because I’ve been playing video games all day!

Starting at 9:44.

As you may have deduced already, I got a Nintendo Switch yesterday! I had previously received Mario Kart and Super Mario Odyssey (thanks again!), so I was able to get a headstart on collecting all the Power Moons. At the time of writing, I have about 70 collected in my co-op game with Saoirse, and Brendan has about 40. I’m going to try and get every Power Moon and make it to the Darker Side of the Moon in Super Mario Odyssey. I ordered the new Legend of Zelda game, Breath of the Wild on Amazon, and it should arrive from December 28th to January 3rd. I head back to school on the 3rd, so I’m really hoping that it gets here sooner rather than later so I can have some time to really check out the game. I think I’ve really gotten some inspiration from all these great video game songs, so be on the lookout for a new song in the near future!

I also got this really cool light-up potion from my uncle on Christmas Eve!

I’m out of time, so thanks for reading all the way down to the bottom of this post!

Baiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

I miss the old rileys backpack..

reddit.com/r/truerileysbackpack-fans/

Posted by differences_between-dumcheeseheroes_rileysbackpackstyle

Now days all Riley does is take time to create quality music and expand his roster of authors to include friends that also create quality posts.

Who else longs for the days where Riley would post MineCraft updates and origami pictures. Total Drama: Rileys Backpack Style fell by the wayside as new authors joined and Free Lunch, Poetry, and *shudders* Life and You became prevalent. Moo and other cow noises stopped as like begging started as rileys backpack fell from glory.

And who knows where it ends? One day it might just become Riley’s Backpack (with apostrophe).

So where this decline start?

I think the beginning of the end was when James Blonde joined the blog. Almost immediately he began to engage with readers, start side, projects, and try to out pace the original author Riley. As more authors filled out the roster the posts have gotten better written and better reviewed.

When we used to come to rileysbackpack.wordpress.com we didn’t want some obnoxious podcast logo, some great music and podcasts, and a commercialized .com. We wanted the counter-culture minecraft, origami, and dum cheese we all knew and loved with a .wordpress proudly in the middle!

.In conclusion, I don’t read rileys backpack anymore and you shouldn’t either.

Out with the news, in with the mOOOOOs.

*skit over*

So I’ve been on kind of a satire writing kick and I don’t know if people actually get/want it. So comment if you would like mixed in satirical, parody, or sketch-like posts. Or maybe you would prefer just my schedule. Just comment.

So thanks and as I always say:

The podcast isn’t bad its amazing link here comment like subscribe feed my empiiiiiiiiiiiiire!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Close to 20k Views :D

Hello there you card-carrying diplomats! (Hello there submitted by Jamie)

Yesterday while looking through that stats I noticed that we are getting very close to Twenty Thousand Views!!!

 That’s a lot O.O

In other news, I finally got around to changing the blog’s timezone to the one that matched mine, and it changed the most viewed day! Turns out, on February 8th, we got 368 views!! That’s also a lot.

I watched the final episode of Season 4 in The Walking Dead lasr night and it was unexpected. Terminus DOES NOT equal sanctuary.. 

For 20k views I have a little thing that i’ve been meaning to do for a while for the suprise 🙂

Hint: R2

Also, I have a question for everybody. Should I keep the old banner on the site that I made in 3rd grade in MS Paint that has Dum Cheese, a poorly made Minecraft grass block, and a comic book that’s really just a red square?

Anyways, that’s going to wrap up this post, I might make another one later today.

Dictionary Taboo:

A thing that’s existance is declined even though it’s real and will kill us all.

Thanks for reading all the way to the bottom of the post :3

I will definitely have a real post out in about an hour or two, so keep your eyes peeled. In the meantime, here is a video I made that you can watch while I google the origin of the phrase “Keep your eyes peeled”.

How To: Get a Particle Trail in Minecraft!

Hello sheeples, today I’ll show you how to get your very own particle trail in Minecraft!

It’s a very easy thing to do, but i’ll give you a step-by-step process for those new to commands. And if you don’t care at all about Minecraft or particle trails, then find another post 😀

Step 1: Do /give @p repeating_command_block

Step 2: Place the block and open it by right clicking (on a PC)

Step 3: Right click (PC again) the big black box, and paste the command (which is below) in it.

Step 4: Right click (by this time you should obviously know this is for PC) the button that says Needs Redstone once, so it is on Always Active.

Step 5: Enjoy your particle trail!

Here’s the command you need to put in:

execute @p ~ ~ ~ /particle reddust ~ ~ ~ 0.5 0 0.5 1 100

You can substitute ‘reddust’ for something like ‘heart’, ‘flame’, or ‘droplet’.

If you want me to work on getting a very specific particle for you, just comment and ask! Thanks a bunch for reading to here, and

Baiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

Unlucky Yet Lucky

Hello there ya three-headed elephants with two heads, how are you doing this morning? I’m doing well enough aside from the fact that our family’s car is flat with a nail right up through it so we can’t drive anywhere. This means no school for Riley, Brendan, and Saoirse. Which is good and bad at the same time depending on how you view it. But LUCKILY that means I get to watch The Walking Dead on a school day :D. By the way, I just started it so no spoilers please.

Yesterday I found my computer mouse, and this is helping a ton in Minecraft. Now that I can actually use the left click button, I realize that I am very good at Super Smash Mobs. I challenge everybody right now to fightttt meeeeeeeeeeeeee (in a video game).

How is your day going after reading this garbage post? Well I  hope.

Presidential Pumpkin Sleepover

That title though

Hello there ya people of the universe, today I just have a post to fill the enlarging void that is inactivity on this blog. I won the Student Council Election so i’m now the President of the Student Council at a school i’ve been attending for 3 months. So that’s cool.

Me and Jamie had a sleepover in which we mostly just played this one super hard game on Mineplex called Pumpkin King’s Revenge (I think). Welp I got home a bit ago and I tried some more on my own and beat it 😀

Now that may not seem very difficult but TRUST ME IT IS.

In other news, we are still consistently growing in followers despite me not posting often, which is kind of weird. I think I might start a new series just to force me to post everyday about the Minecraft Realm that all my friends play on. (Jamie, Maz, Jordan, Iverson, ect..) Before anyone asks, no i’m sorry but you can’t join. Jordan owns the realm and doesn’t want to add any more people to it.

So that’s the post for today. Enjoy. Bask in it’s glory. Or not.

Top 10 Underrated Blogs

Hello there ya WUNDURFUL people, today I’m going to be shouting-outting again, only this time, it’s in the form of a list post.

In the interest of promoting only blogs who deserve more people reading them, no one over 100 followers will be included in this post 😛

During my travels of the blogosphere, I have found a lot of blogs that write waaaaaaaaaay better than me and have like zilch attention going to them. Along with all the new blogs who DON’T have a social media famous mom to boost them. Like I did :3

LISTING, START!!

10. OkayGaming – You might know him, it’s the home of Baggie! On this blog it’s almost ALL Minecraft suff, but with a rare Clash of Clans episode. Sometimes I’m in the Minecraft episodes, but not often. 

9. PauseenP – Lots of video game rants, and political rants. It’s mostly him being bad at video games.. and bad at rants.. *Que Sick Burn Music*
8. DV Talks About Stuff   He talks about video games, does book reviews, and sometimes origami still. I think.

7. arecklesswriter – Giving writing tips to anyone that will listen! Great to follow if you’re thinking of writing a book. Kinda right, kinda wrong, kinda reckless.

6. diariesofascatterbrain – Usual post topics include setting up his Minecraft server, playing Softball, and walking around playing Ingress. Pretty cool.

5. Stories by Stacy – Leaning all over the place with lots of different forms of art, and of course, stories! So far I’ve seen good photos, good poetry, and GOUDA writing lol.

4. Camster Origami – A collection of funny things and origami. Along with some video games thrown in for good measure.

3. clockworkdragonking – Making posts about publishing his book, along with the occasional fitness or video games post. And some of his posts get philosophical lol.

2. chipchompdoodles – With Origami and original doodles, this blog is the closest thing you can get to back when OrigamiYoda.com had a talkzone and uploaded a lot.

1. Pandora’s Box   This writer does a TON of really detailed and well written fan fiction. They do Transformers mostly, and then some anime I don’t know, and the rare Avatar The Last Airbender come out. The lowest word count I’ve seen in a post is 1,500. And the highest is 12,000 *_*

Did I mention that they post everyday? How do you find the time to write that many words a day and still have a job or go to school? HOW? And to only have like 2 people read that must be horrible.

Thanks for reading, like ‘n stuff.

Baiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

Ramen Noodles and Kubo

HELLO YA PEOPLE READING ME, today we have a life post, which we haven’t had in far too long. I’m about to leave Oak Ridge as I type this, but I figured I would have enough time and WiFi to get it out. The other day, I tried Ramen Noodles for the first time, and now I’m in love with ’em. I drank most of the broth last night :O. Yes, I know they are really bad for you, but I’m assuming that I’ll probably never get to have them outside of Oak Ridge because we’ve never eaten them at my house. Who knows, maybe i’ll start a Ramen Noodle trend in Nashville :D.

Also, we went to see Kubo and The Two Strings last night, which was reallllllllllllllllllllllly good. Basically, it’s a movie about a kid who can play his strings instrument and turn normal origami alive! He has to go on some quests and stuff, there are sad parts, and it got a NINETY-SIX percent on Rotten Tomatoes.. How does that even happen?? I would call hacks, but it’s such a good movie that I actually believe it got that review legitimately.

In Fallen Human news, I got really stuck, trying to figure out how to make the King stop his attacks once you die, so you don’t just respawn and he’s still shooting stuff at you. If it was that way, it wouldn’t matter whether or not you died, the attacks would just continue and he would lose without you having to do anything but die. Graystalk, a fellow planet-minecrafter, helped me find a some commands that would work for my situation. So all’s good there.

Sanstale is tearing out my eyes.

That’s about all that’s happening to me right now, what about you?
