Heartstrings – Soundcloud

Hello there you billion brilliant stars. Today I have something very exciting for you all! It’s my first song on the internet with singing (if you don’t count the Minecraft Parody covers from 5 years ago). I would greatly appreciate any positive words at all because i’m not so sure I should even try singing.

Lyrics:

You remind me of the rainy days

Staying inside gazing out my window
It’s you that I am trying to chase
But so far it’s only caused me more woe

I’m really sorry honey
But my heartstrings only know the same sad chords
You’re looking at me sideways
But all that I can see is more closed doors

Heartstrings
Are the most useful instrument
Inspiration rings
Through my heartstring’s torment

Heartstrings
Are the most useful instrument
All my writing
Come from my heartstring’s lament

I’m really sorry honey
But my heartstrings only know the same sad chords
You’re looking at me sideways
But all that I can see is more closed doors

Love is just like other things
That’s the only metaphor I need
Doves can’t fly without their wings
So take my warning and heed

I’m really sorry honey
But my heartstrings only know the same sad chords
You’re looking at me sideways
But all that I can see is more closed doors

I love you
But you don’t love me the way I do to you
But I can blame it on getting no sleep
See the last track, sit and weep

I’m really sorry honey
But my heartstrings only know the same sad chords
You’re looking at me sideways
But all that I can see is more closed doors

note: I am overtagging this post just so that my music gets noticed 🙂

Save Our Domain!

Hello there you hopefully generous donors. Tonight we are here to pander to you, as we don’t have any money to keep the domain “rileysbackpack.com”. On September 3rd, it will expire and anyone who visits rileysbackpack.com won’t get to the blog, and those who go to the regular site will get ads again! The URL will be lengthened back to rileysbackpack.wordpress.com and ads will start appearing on posts regularly again from WordPress. While we understand that keeping our shortened version and staying free of ads is a largely unneeded luxury, we would like to save you all the time from typing those extra few characters if you ever actually access the blog through the website and the happiness of not seeing ads on our posts.

As of now, we have 3 days until rileysbackack.com will turn to rileysbackpack.wordpress.com, and the ads will return.

So to address this issue, Jamie suggested that we start a GoFundMe, in case maybe you all will help out :3

If you don’t want to, that’s totally fine, but consider that you donating a cup of coffee’s worth of cash can help us for the next entire year.

Here’s the link: https://www.gofundme.com/save-our-domain

For those of you who can’t afford to help, or don’t have a way to make online transactions or anything, remember that you can help by posting this on social media or reblogging and stuff.

I’m sorry there wasn’t a Free Lunch today, I was busy with school and setting up the GoFundMe.

Thanks for reading all the way down to the bottom of this post :5

Free Lunch

Free Lunch #16

Hello there you carnivals of carnivorous cats. Can I get an illustration on that from anyone xD

(IF YOU ACTUALLY DO SEND IT TO totallyrileysbackpack@gmail.com :D)

Today is Free Lunch #16. If you don’t know what that means, basically I try to type for 5 minutes without stopping. I usually do this on my phone, but i’m on my laptop this time so expect more words.

I’ll start at 9:00.

Right now I am listening to the song Carnival from Gorillaz’s new album, Humanz. It’s one of my favorites from the album (or at least in the top ten), and it’s the way I got my interesting intro for today.

Today I feel like I stayed busy doing pretty much nothing important. In ELA, we worked on our poems and songs, and I’ve already finished both of those, so I just sat around doing math for almost an hour and a half. Though I was pretty lazy and probably only did about a half hour’s worth of work :/

As you may have noticed, I changed the tagline of the site from “jamie come up with a tagline” to “Everything is Relative”. However, I came up with the tagline, not Jamie. If you’re reading this Dad, know that one of your favorite quotes made it to the tagline.

Earlier while I was on the computer doing something close to nothing in ELA, I saw that our Publicize followers counted as real followers! On the website, for the follower count, instead of what should be 360, it says 379, which were added from Twitter. I was unaware that Twitter followers made an actual impact on my follower count.

In music news, I have been polishing up a few tracks, and you should see a video come out on my channel called “E-Jazz” within the next week or so. When it does, i’ll make a post so that you don’t have to go to the channel itself.

My time is up, and I hope you liked the post. If you did then like the post.

Thanks for reading all the way down to this *relatively* long Free Lunch :3

Next time on Free Lunch: a secret of the Rileys Backpack franchise self-leaked!

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

Rileys Backpack Food Art Contest #2

Heylo everybody, since we have exceptionally grown in active followers since the last Food Art Contest, I think it’s time for another one! I know we’ll get even more entries this time, and steeper competition if I can get the elusive OY30 to try.

Basically, if you don’t remember the rules from last time, there are two categories, Food and Drawings. You can only have one entry for both categories, so choose wisely.

To compete in the Food category, you’re going to want to run to your kitchen and find some food that describes you. Or maybe just something that looks funny. Anyways, you draw a face on it some way, whether it be with a sharpie, your fingernail, or some knife from the drawer.

To compete in the Drawing category, you need to just grab a piece of paper and draw your very own original food character!

One change from last time is that now, the categories are judged separately, so that the people who doodle on food have a chance against experienced artists. Winners of each category get different prizes 😀

For the Food category, the prize is author on the blog for a month. That’s a long time. A very, very long time. That means you get to post on Rileys Backpack! Eh, it’s an ok prize.

For the Drawing category, i’m going to be designing a new backdrop for the blog. Right now it’s some crappy MS paint Dum Cheese and Rileys Backpack along with a few false topics, such as Minecraft, Comics, and CHEESE. Anyways, everyone who submits a drawing gets to be in the backdrop, but the winner has a bigger copy than everyone else on there.

If you want to enter the contest, either make a post on your blog with a picture of your art and tell me you posted it down in the comments (I miss a lot of you guys’s posts because school is horrible), or just post the image itself in the comments, which I think is possible.

Anyways, good luck, the due date is next Wednesday!

Baiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

Nonu and The Dark Mask

A short story I made for English class.

A long time ago, two of the greatest sorcerers of all time worked together to create the Dark mask. It’s powers were many, but the main advantage of wearing the mask was the ability to shapeshift into anyone alive.

Not long after it was made, the two began to argue over who would be allowed use the mask. A fight broke out, lasting hours, but eventually one triumphed over the other. He abused the mask’s power, and a few years later, died of Leprosy.

 

2131, January 6th

    Nonu slid the mask onto his face, his features almost molding with it after six years of use. He casually strolled down the foyer of Soe Tower, his worst nemesis’s tallest skyscraper and place of residence. Morphed into a security guard named Bill, the main secretary even waved at him as he walked past her towards the elevator in the center of the building.

    Ever since Nonu had found the mask in a construction site when he was 11, Octa Soe had been hot on his trail, trying to nab the mask for her own maniacal purposes. As Nonu pressed the elevator button, his mind zipped back to the first time he had encountered Soe. It had been a hot, muggy June afternoon, and Nonu was lying down on a park bench in New York City, when she had just walked over and sat down on the bench directly beside him. She explained that she had been gathering data about him ever since he had found the mask, and then began describing to him the torture methods she would use to get the mask out of him if he didn’t give it to her. Although all common sense dictated towards giving her the mask, Nonu’s heart pointed the opposite direction, and he bolted away from her. That night, he had nightmares envisioning himself being tortured to death.

Shuddering, Nonu blinked back to reality. The elevator was cranking itself up to the top of the building, all the while making a sad grinding noise, as if to remind Nonu of the risk he was taking trying to kill Octa. He reached the top floor. Completely made of smooth, stainless steel, this floor of Soe Tower was home to the most important people. With offices in a circle around him, Octa’s door was labeled clearly in bright red ink. As he walked towards the door, a lingering wave of dread washed over him, reminding him of the dire consequences of tonight. Tonight was the last straw.

He got to the metallic door, and it automatically opened in front of him. Sitting at her desk, was Octa, busy with paperwork. As he walked in,her instincts kicked in, and she grabbed the gun sitting next to her and trained it on him. Seeing it was only the security guard, she put it back in her drawer.

“Bill, what are you doing in my office at this hour?”

Nonu breathed a sigh of relief, glad that he had kept this form, and glad he hadn’t gotten shot to bits before the fight even began. Gathering all the courage he could, he leapt towards her, while at the same time tearing off the mask and shoving it in his pocket. As he ripped the mask off, a shroud of light surrounded him, and his form reverted to the original 17 year-old boy that he was without the mask. He collided with Octa. Off-guard, she tumbled to the ground with him, and made a quick move to open the drawer. Nonu foresaw this, and shot his arm over, stopping her from reaching her destination. He put his arms around her throat, and began strangling the woman that had ruined his life. She kicked him off, and he flew across the room, hitting the wall and slumping to the ground, defeated.

Octa grabbed the gun and began walking towards him, an evil grin spreading across her face like a virus. She decided she was actually going to ensue those painful methods she had told him about earlier. As she made the first shot with her gun, aiming for his stomach, with his last grasp of strength, he pulled the mask up and put it in the way of the bullet. Appalled by what she had done, Octa dropped the gun, and Nonu began to stand up. But it was too late. Cracks of light began to seep across the map, spilling it’s very essence onto the floor. Octa and Nonu both confused, the light took the form of the original makers, and the sorcerer who died first started laughing at the two of them.

“What could possibly be so hilarious at this moment? The last 5 years i’ve just spent searching for this, you, have gone to complete waste!”, Octa furiously vented at the wizard.

He continued to laugh, and Octa picked up the gun, and shot the light-creature. The laughing stopped. The sorcerer straightened his back, cracked his knuckles, and began to turn into a strange red light. When the transformation was complete, he only said two words.

“Mask bad”

Apparently not getting the message, Octa continued to shoot him, shrieking at the top of her lungs some unintelligible banter. The sorcerer got sick of her and snapped. She disappeared, and so did everything else in New York City. A thriving city instantly transformed into a barren wasteland, just because of the greediness of one person.

Somewhere in the afterlife, the other wizard chuckled to himself, thinking that they got what had been coming to them.

THE END

Writing The Longest Post Of ALL TIME!!

For those of you who don’t remember back when I started this in May, I decided I was going to write the longest post on Rileys Backpack yet. As of finishing this prologue right now, the final word count is 2134.

So that’s right, you read me. Today we are going to see if we can write the longest post of all time about everything I can scour my brain to write about while I’m doing this.. So let’s start, the time is 12:37, and I’m in Math Class. We were doing Map Testing but I finished it yesterday.

So.

Now I pretty much have the entire period to do whatever it is I wish to do.

I’ve been thinking and I’m wondering if there is any website you can use that is specifically geared towards writers featuring their writings live, like as they type it their followers can watch the page, see them develop ideas and such. Anyways I just thought it would be kind of cool. NEXT!!

So I’ve been practicing a lot of soccer after school now, and I figured out a way to build your stamina each day magnificently! I call it, the Cheestamina Effect!! Which sounds incredibly stupid because I just came up with it on the spot. Wait, scratch that name, let’s just call it “the thing from the swamp”. I’ve been using the thing from the swamp to help improve my stamina greatly. So here’s how the thing from the swamp works. I have a big back and front yard. I measured a distance from a telephone pole to a fence and its 90 feet (or 30 meters [pretty much]) So basically one run from the telephone pole and to the fence and back is one lap. For someone who was previously so unfit (such as myself), you have to start with a small number, like 7 or 9. So run that, then the next day run one more lap than before. Then one more the next. And so on. I’m at a really high number, so most days im running the equivalent of half a mile. Think about it. There and back is 180 feet, and a mile is 5210. So running only 14 is 2520, which is only a bit off of a half a mile. So if you do this, after a couple of days of stopping eating junk food and running with this system, you’ll be as fit as a fiddle. NEXT!!!!

I don’t know if I have mentioned this yet, but I am reading the Maze Runner series, and I’m on the Kill Order. I’m not going to spoil it, but all I have to say is (Spoiler Alert—– WHY DOES NEWT HAVE TO DIE ;-;—– Spoiler Alert) Sorry if you saw that before reading the spoiler alert. *sobs* I didn’t care about all the other people who die. NEXT!!

So a while ago me and my brother and sister started watching the show Lost, which is a drama about people who crash on a mysterious island. There are a ton of really interesting characters, and the best part about it is all the plot twists. In every season there is something new to fret about. The Others (the island’s natives)! The Hatch (4 8 15 16 23 42)! Charles Whitmore (Evil billionaire)!

That’s 500 Words.

And here’s another spoiler.. Up ahead… I highly recommend that if you haven’t seen the show you steer clear of the next sentence. I’m serious. Stop reading. I want you to watch the show and if you keep reading this you will never be able to enjoy it. Last warning. Why does Charlie have to die?? He could have just waltzed out, closed the stupid door and told Desmond himself that it’s not her boat. It was meaningless death! WHYY!!!

NEXT!!!!

I’m getting a bit tired of typing, I’ve been doing this for a good 20 minutes and i’m going to just continue this later. Also in the mean time i’ll post something about advertising in this post. Just like all special posts and everything more than five minutes long, it needs advertisement breaks to keep your skull from exploding. Welp, i’ll be back in a bit. Signing off at 650 words.

May 11th, 2016, 11:23

Heyo I’m back with the longest post of all time and now I have an advertisement to log into this so once I think the time is right i’ll add it in.

And

The

Time

Is

NOOOOWWWW
Ever wished you could find a good blog out there that posts reviews, tutorials, and gameplay a about all different kinds of games? Well then check out my blog at http://www.fnblogging.wordpress.com for the ultimate gaming experience!

Yea so there ya go Brandoboy. Today I’m going to be talking about absolutely nothing. I’m getting a bit (AKA EXTREMELY) bored of writing this. I feel like I should just import some material from before, but I can’t do that cause this has to be brand new writing. As you all know, I used to avidly play Minespud (a minecraft server with bending). The reason I stopped posting about it isn’t good. The server shut down and now I have nothing to do on minecraft, and because of this, I’ve pretty much stopped playing it for the time being. If any of you can think of a server I can play with factions and that isn’t too big, please recommend it in the comments below. Of course most of you won’t ever actually read this because your just going to read the top of the page, scroll waaaaay down to the bottom, and say “Oh yea I read it all!”. So if you actually read this bit in the middle, then say so by typing “Just 2 More” in the comments. Dang that’s 900 I’m getting reaaaaaal tired of writing this post.

I think i’ll go to a thousand and then stop for today. So. Clash of Clans. In this game, the clan Polar Cheese still thrives and we are getting really good at war. We are on a war win streak of 4 right now, and we are presently wrecking the next clan so soon it will be at 5. I’ve set up a new system to show who is the most important, War MVP and Donating Champ. I continuously win Donating Champ, and I try to pass around War MVP. That’s 1014 and I’m signing off for today. The time is 11:33.

I’m back, and it’s June 4th at 10:58 PM. I should probably be sleeping though. I’m on a pretty big losing streak on Clash Royale. But aside from that I’m in South Carolina right now, the night before the family reunion where there’s tons of food and family! I’m staying at my Great-Uncles house, and there’s wifi and cable 😌 xD. But yea there’s not much to talk about anymore. The dog that’s in this house starting freaking out earlier barking and he woke my brother and sister up. Such loudness :P. But he went to my moms room so were good now. I’m getting tired so I’m gone for now, cya signing off at 11:02!!

Jeez it’s Been months, I’m still doing this? Uhh

It’s now August 13th, i’m just here to add some to this forever going project. I plan to stop once we hit 5,000 words. But hey, thats probably not going to happen until next year. At the moment, I am working on LOTE (Land of The Elves). I’ve got the story and everything down, and by the time this post comes out, the game might be finished xD. Jamie has Undertale on his computer, we are doing Pacifist, and last night we got past Papyrus! Then we dated him..

My current interests are Twenty One Pilots, Undertale, Rileys Backpack, and jacksepticeye. On Pokemon Go, I am level 16, and my best current pokemon is a 1095 Vaporeon. Brendan is working on music for LOTE, and i’m about to go get a sandwhich. I’m getting ready to delete some pages, cause they are irrelevant. Pages like Video Games (And Other Games), and Clash of Clans War Records. I might restart War Records later once I have more war stuff to talk about. At the moment, our clan has a war win streak of 2 and it’s about to be 3 :D.

Welp, i’ll be back in a bit after my sandwich. I’m going to let my sister type in PINK.

HEY GO TO MY BLOG thepinkspace1 NOW.LIKE.SUBSCIBE. HI HI HI HI HI HI HI HI HI HI HI HI OBI IS SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO  CUTE I MISS WIFI DO U HAVE WIFI ———– LOL =D =D =D =D =D =D LOL .     OMG         OMG

Well that was weird. And it took her 10 minutes to do that… Do you mind if I just copy and paste something I wrote previously xD thats like 1,000 words? No.. I have to stay strong. Today I got 200 words done ;-;

BUT I”M NOT DONEEEE. whya why did that text turn gray lol. I never clicked for it to turn gray. I have to go for now.

3:50 August 13th. Here’s some LOTE details. Beware, kinda spoilers.

Area 1 is the House

In Area 1, you are Inside a house with thunderstorms raging outside, and your brother talking to you about how bored he is. He is younger than you , and his name is Prosper. He laughs, telling you he would find something to do. When he walks out of the room, the game explains the controls. On the wall is a drawing of Dum Cheese. The closet is full of clothes. There are two beds in the room, one is messy and one is clean. If you try to interact with the bed, you hear a growl. The hallway is mostly empty, aside from the blue rainbow painting. There are three doors, one leads to the kitchen, one to the basement, and one with Prospers speech bubble coming from, which is the bedroom. You are able to explore the house, but the basement door is locked. The key is hidden in a kitchen drawer, but the basement only holds a pingpong table, with a note on top and two paddles. To read note please see A1N1. The paddles can be picked up. If you go into the basement then leave, Prosper yells for you again, this time saying, ‘Hurry Up! What are you doing that’s so important??’

If you go back into the kitchen, in the drawer next to the oven, there is a totally dark photograph. For more information on that see A1P1. Also, stuck to the fridge is a note, which you can find more about at in A1N2. Once you (FINALLY) go into the next bedroom that Prosper is in, you see him making a suprised face at an elf who popped out of the sheets of the bed. He starts to talk in a language you don’t understand, and draws a blade, although he looks nervous about using it. Prosper backs away slowly, and you are given an option to fight him, offer him your lollipop, or back away. If you fight him, combat begins. If you offer him the lollipop, he grins in delight and crawls back under the covers. If you back away, he walks towards you uttering the same strange tounge, and you are forced into combat. Once you either defeat him, or bribe him away, your brother Prosper jumps into the bed and disappears under the covers. If you stay in the room for more than 30 seconds, once you go in, he asks what took you so long. You can either stay silent or say I was scared.

End of Area 1. Continue in Area 2.

That puts us at nearly 2000 words so far. Cya later…

It’s 3:24 August 26th. Looking back at that LOTE thing I put down, I kinda regret doing that, because this is posting sooner than one might think. But it’s not going to matter anyways because it’s gonna be a really long time until LOTE actually comes out. I mean, it doesn’t make any difference anyways, because nothing is really important in Area 1. Area 2 however..

I just wanna put this at 2,000 words, schedule it for next week and move on. I’m at 1970. Keep talking. Just gotta finish this strong! agh I have nothing to say to you. SAVE ME PINK FLUFFY UNICORNS!!

pink fluffy unicorns dancing on rainbows

pink fluffy unicorns dancing on rainbows

AND WE DID IT WERE AT SOME NUMBER ABOVE 2000. I feel bad about this because I look in my reader and see some of my writer friends do like 12,000 words in a post, which is insane, at least for me.

Welp thanks for reading, leave a comment if you want your ad put on. But other than ads i’m done with this. I feel if I had have put more work into this it would have been much longer, but instead I worked on it like every other two weeks. Nonetheless,

Baiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

1,000th Post Stuff!!

It’s our thousandth post woooooo! That’s ONE THOUSAND different times I have randomly added something to your inbox. ONE THOUSAND times I have posted something pointless! Time for math :D, but don’t worry it’s easy. We have 13,171 views at the moment. When we divide 13,171 by 1,000, you get 13.171. So on average, everything I post gets about 13 views. Think that’s cool? No? Well this is! So far on the blog, we have gotten 2,860 likes! When we divide that we get 2.86, which rounds to 3. On average we get 3 likes per post.

Also, stats have been down the last couple days, so let’s get em back up. This year I’m hoping to beat 2014 in views, got over 5,000 that year so it’s going to be difficult. But I BELIEVE I can do it by posting a bunch of posts that take like 3 minutes to read, unlike this one, show me we are worthy of the holy rileysbackpack.com

Now let’s take a brief tour in history through the phases of Rileys Backpack.

At first, the random things phase, where I posted a bunch of weird stuff.

Then, the Minecraft phase, the result of which is this page.

After, the reblog phase, where 80% of my posts were shared.

Later, the comments time, when I amassed like 5,000 views in 2014.

Then I was pretty inactive in 2015. 

I started posting normal again in early 2016, in the life phase.

And then in 2017, I was amazed by the hundreds of millions of views we got during 2016.

Oh darn I just jinxed it. Thanks for reading, help undo my jinx by viewing my posts hundreds of thousands of timed, MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
