Slice of Life: Aligators

 This week my dad and I went out on a river to see some gators. We did not see many because the air boats were scaring them away. At one point we went onto the shore to try and wait them out. When we started to head back we decided to motor down the other way. We saw a lot more gators on the other side then the one we started out on. Have a happy Easter!

Slice of Life: Hungry Games

Today I watched Hank,Emily and Micheal play the Hungry Games!! In this they play a game that requires them to catch little fishes with a fishing pole. If they win they eat a yummy brownie if they lose they eat a gross brownie. The gross brownies can have stuff from spam to caviar. The good brownies have good tasty treats in them. I don't know what stuff they have in them because they did not comment on the good brownies.
The lord of ages game is awesome I have played it for two days now. In the beginning (where I am now) all you do for quests is easy things like upgrade this or build that. You can also attack things. If you attack the sub volcanic furnace you can watch the action.If you send out your men to attack some thing they either come back with a war report or die in the battle. NOTE: Do not attack the furnace without having archers or more than 10 pike men.I did that and lost all my soldiers. Pike men will be , unless you have a lot of them, mowed down by the artillery and pike men of the furnace. With archers you will be able to attack from a distance this will help you. Also I suggest getting the transporters to carry the men's supplies.
In Minecraft I played more of the battle for Conwy castle. It is fun and suggest you join it. It is almost always full in the afternoon.I played minecraft while when ever I died checked on my Lord of Ages place. A little weird I know but the things take forever to build on Lord of Ages.

Slice of Life

Just so you know while I was writing this I was listening to Fermi Paradox by Hank Green.
My friend emailed me saying I should play this online game. I replied saying that this just looks like a role playing game(rp). He answered saying you build up your kingdom and battle stuff. I am going to join it today. He said I can join his clan I just have to email him on the game thing. I already made a account yesterday I just did not play it. I can not wait to see what it really is. I know for certain you make your own kingdom but I do not know how you battle. The other game I had like this you just put your men in certain spots then told them to attack or move. That game was boring. This game seems like a lot of fun.

Slice of Life: Minecraft Battle For Conway Castle

This Slice is about Minecraft THE BATTLE FOR CONWAY CASTLE. There are about 4-5 maps were you will battle with the other team. The maps are: Conway, another Castle, Mines of Moria, and a Island with Pirates. My favorite is either Mines of Moria or the other castle.  All of these maps were actually made by the owner of the server Rockslides.The Mines of Moria are fun because there are so many places a archer can get to and shoot the unknowing team underneath. Also if your in that spot there are no torches so it is hard to see you. Also on the mines there is this part with these huge pillars that get smaller as they go up. it is really fun to climb as high as possible on those pillars and fire down. I beat my 5 killstreak record up there. My stats are not the best I have like 43 points. I also am a archer so when I see a swordsman I run away fast. I do this because even though four arrows take down a swordsmen they are dangerous when near by. They will purposely chase 2 archers than chase 1 other swordsmen just to get the kills. When you are a archer you have 48 arrows and a power 1 bow. It takes 3 fully charged hits to kill another archer. As a archer you don't get many kills you really only weaken the enemy while the swordsmen and spears men whack away at them.

Slice of Life: Alex Rider 2

Today I am going to talk about the next two books in the Alex Rider series. I also will talk about the Minecraft Forge 1.5 update. For starters the Forge 1.5 is horrible. One reason might be that I don't know how to install a new Forge update. I also tried to by deleting the bin folder and running minecraft like the forums says you should do. I did this installed the new forge and Minecraft would not load. How bout it folks it wouldn't work. I kind of want to try mod loader because people online say it is more reliable than Universal Forge.  I do not want to get mod loader because Forge seems to have better mods on it like clay soldiers.
Now for Alex Rider. In the Point Blank and Alex Rider almost dies, again. In Point Blank Alex is sent to a boarding school for rich kids. He is sent as Alex Friend son of a major super market company. The kids here are all troubled and have bad pasts such as stealing and such on. At this school they suddenly have manners. Then two of the fathers of kids here die 1 week a part. MI6 looks into it what do they find read the book.

Slice of Life: Halo #2 & Alex Rider

      This week I started reading Hades (bottom right) and Alex Rider Stormbreak.    (------> top right) I really liked Stormbreak and might not continue Hades because Alex Rider has more action and Hades is not fully like Halo. Hades is also so far not as good as Halo.
I just finished Stormbreak and at my library it doesn't say the order of the books so I grabbed the third not the second. I will have to go back and get the second now.
I can not wait till spring break I am going to read and relax and sleep and have a ton of fun. I also will play more minecraft and maybe download a new mod. If you would like to suggest a mod put a link to the download in the comments.If you like action and spy books Alex Rider is for you. If you love books were two lovers are pulled a part Hades is for you.

Slice of life: Unibrows

 Today at my school someone said,"You have a unibrow?"
I said ,"No," and continued working on the school work. He kept saying you have a unibrow. I also kept saying no I do not. When my mom picked me up from school I asked her,"Do I have a unibrow?"
She said,"Yes,we will need to shave it." I did not think it was really visible until I got home and saw the hairs were almost connected. This is really all I have to say today wait I did finish Halo it was a really good ending.

Slice of Life: Farris and Fosters

 Yesterday I made chocolate at Farris and Fosters. I did not really make chocolate I just made chocolate molds and covered things with chocolate. It was really fun and they put out tasting trays so you could eat  chocolate while making it. After you were done making your chocolate you would put it on a tray and they would put it in the freezer. After all your chocolate was done you had to weigh it. If it was a pound you would pay the 20 dollars. If it was a 2 pounds then you would have to pay 34 dollars. Every pound you went over was 14 dollars.

Slice of Life: The Redstone Minecraft Update

Today I will talk about something I have not even looked played or seen. The minecraft redstone update.In this update a ton of things have been added. The trap chest has been added. The TNT cart also is here. Redstone block has been added as well. The weighted pressure plate.Quartz and quartz block were also added. The TNT cart is kind of fun to play with. If you make it go really fast the explosion will be bigger. If it falls off a cliff it will explode. When running into a block it will explode. do not put 2 TNT carts one right in front of the other they will explode on contact with each other. Other wise have fun with this amazing update.

Slice of Life: Halo

Yesterday I started the book Halo. Halo is not like the famous video games (even though there are books for that). This book is about these angels sent to Earth to destroy the Darkness. Three of them are based in a small town on the coast. The youngest angel is only 17 earth years old and has never been to earth. The other two are older and wise and have had many trips to earth. They have to take on a human form and now have a body to take care of. In Heaven they don't have a body. The youngest is curios and falls in love with a human boy. What will happen to them. Find out by reading the awesomely written book with me (I have not finished it just needed something to post about).

Slice of Life: braces

Today I got braces. Since around 11:50 they have hurt, a lot. I could not even eat my sandwich and pretzels for lunch. luckily I had a cheese stick.I could eat the cheese stick. I have now a full mouth of metal. The braces up front almost feel to big and it almost hurts to talk. Talking is also weird because you can't touch the top of your mouth that well. I can not really make a hissing sound, it just comes out hitthh.
Swallowing is also a challenge. I have to suck my saliva back almost into my throat then do a weird awkward not tongue involved swallow. My appliance is not right up against the top of my mouth so my tongue has less movement when swallowing.Otherwise it is not that bad.

Slice of LIfe: Clay Soldiers Mod for Minecraft

Yesterday after I wrote my slice I decided to download a mod. I ended up downloading or installing 4-5 things. I first downloaded WinRAR. Then I downloaded Minecraft Forge. After Forge I downloaded the mod. The mod made you download 2 things. The mod lets you craft tiny little clay soldiers. To download the mod here is the link. I have not found out all the crafting recipes or all the things you can do to the soldiers. If you want to have a colorful army you will fail. Different color soldiers will attack each other. You can declare a king for a army by giving a soldier a golden nugget. They can also build bases if you give them enough room. There are also miniature animals they can ride. They can ride: horses, geckos, turtles, and bunnies. All the animals have to be crafted.

Slice of Life

Sorry I have not sliced in 3 (or is it 4) days. Here is my Slice.

 This morning I was looking at some other slices. I found this one that talked about this music group Afrojack. Afrojack is a pop and electronic music group. Some of there videos are a bit inappropriate but this one has nothing bad in it.  My favorite song and I was listening to it while I wrote this.It is called Pop on Acid. It has a lot of repetition but I like it.

In Minecraft another of my friends is making a server. Sadly no one knows how to open a server. If you know how to open it, tell me in the comments.

On another Slice some one wrote about eyebrows. It was a interesting slice. In the Slice the person told us to search what people look like without eyebrows. Personally I think they look creepy and funny at the same time.

Slice of Life Dropping the computer

Today I went to write my slice when I noticed there as a glare from the sun on my computer screen. I decided I should move and picked up my laptop. I had lifted it 4-5 inches off of the table when I dropped it. It hit the table and the battery popped. No sever damage was done. When I went to reboot it, it said system repair (recommended) or start windows normally. I chose system repair fearing of more damage. It said it would have to go to a previous time in the computers life. It did not go to far back but deleted my Google Chrome and Minecraft.Everything else was still there. I re-installed Google Chrome and it still had all the stuff I had use to have on it. It was a very interesting experience.

Baseball Slice of Life

I did this yesterday not today I just forgot to hit publish.

This afternoon I went to a baseball game. It was the Braves and the Detroit Lions. The Lions lost by 5 points. The score was 6 to 1. The game was kinda fast. It started at 1 and ended at about 3:30. It was cold when we entered and left. In the Stadium it was kind of warm. The sun was on us an we had box seats. We had the perfect view. There was no one in front of us and we had the netting in front of us so we did not have to pay to much attention to a foul ball. Here are is a picture of the game.

Translated Dancing: Slice of Life #2

This is my second slice of life of 2013. Today I am going to talk about the Vlogbrothers and one of their newest videos, Hank Green's "Translating Dance Songs". The link is here.

John Green & Me
 In the video Hank translates Gangam Style, Soulja Boy, and 2 other songs that I can't name. I watched the video 3 or 4 times. I like it that much. One reason I like it is because the video is funny. He has a literal translation of the songs.I also never knew that was what I was listening to when I listened to those songs. I recommend this video because it is a shortened translation of what the song writers are saying.

I like John and Hank Green the same. I have met John Green at NCTE 2011. That year it was in Chicago. My mom was Hank Green's English teacher when he was a senior. So I hope I will get to meet him some time in my future. John writes books and Hank makes music for DFTBA records. DFTBA means don't forget to be awesome.

The Lion, The Witch,and The Wardrobe Slice of Life

For the past 3 weeks  I have been reading LWW in class. I was reading it in class because I was not aloud to read a head.
The best part was when Aslan jumped over the castle walls. The most exiting part was when Peter killed Maugrim. The worst part was when Aslan died. This is a new format for my blogging say if you like it or not in the comments. (Personally I don't like just wanted to test it)
