Cartoons 24/24

Cartoons have always been somewhat funny. Why is this? Cartoons deserve to have their own genres to just like any other movie. Or are cartoons a genre in them self? Either way they are entertaining. I try to make my own cartoons, but not too successfully. Here is an example.colors

See how much fun cartooning can be? Cartoons are just great! He has a sad life though. He is such a colorful person, but he doesn’t like colors. Maybe I should help him.

less colors

There all better now.

I draw Cartoons all of the time. Most are in notebooks and on homework though, so I cant put them in this blog. I wish I could. I guess if I really wanted to I could, but I would need to go all the way downstairs and use the copying machine. It would be a hassle. Maybe I’ll do it another day I’m not so tired. I only have 161 words as of now. I don’t think that is nearly long enough for my last blog of this twenty four hour blog day. Oh well. I’m too tired, so I’m just going to end it with 195 words.

Awkward Moments Post 22

None really. I’m pretty patient with people.

Oh I do have a problem with open doors. I know that probably sounds really weird, but I just can not stand doors being open. I have no clue why, but Brian’s brother is the same way. It doesn’t make any sense to me. Even if I’m watching TV and a door i left open it drives me crazy. I guess I’m just a weird-o. Is anybody else the same way. If you have an issue like this please comment so I don’t feel as alone.

I don’t have very many awkward moments and I only have 3 minutes to write this blog so that’s why this blog and pet peeves are basically the same.

The Most Influential Year In School-Blog 20

I’m doing this twenty four hour blog day with mostly college students or ex-college students, so a lot of our answers are going to vary. Especially on a topic like this, because i haven’t even finished high-school yet. But since I have to choose I guess I' choose 2010-2011, my eighth grade year. This is the first year that I get credits, so this year will greatly effect the rest of my high school experience. Most eighth grade students aren’t getting any credits this year because they aren’t in honors math. Which is just algebra one. Most of my friends will be taking algebra one next year when I’m in geometry.

A lot has happened this year. I’m turning fifteen in June, and next year I will get my learners permit then my drivers license. By that time eighth grade wont even be close to my most influential year. I chose it now because I don’t have a lot of options, Unlike someone who has already finished high school and at least four years of college. This year specifically isn’t very special. It’s just recent, and fresh in my mind. Even though it is fresh in my mind I really don’t have much to talk about. So ya it’s 5:17 AM. I’m going back to sleep now.

My Biggest Fault

I of course like anyone have many faults. Some are a little major, and others aren’t often noticeable. My biggest/worse fault has got to be that I tend to obsess over things sometimes. For example, my music takes up almost all of the space on my iPod touch, so I want to get a new one. One with 64 gigabytes. I don’t want it just for the memory though, I also want the 4th generation because it has a camera, and a microphone. So I was obsessing over this iPod a little bit. I got on EBay to so how cheap I would be able to get one from there. I checked online at Best Buy, Wal-Mart, and Target. This process went on for a couple of days and then it gradually started to slow down. I nearly forgot about it until now. I decided I would wait until the next IPod comes out before I get it.

I don’t really know what I could do to help me be a little bit less obsessive. There are just small things like the IPod the come along every now and then, that grab my attention. Nobody, except me and sometimes my parents, really notices when I’m obsessed over something.

I’m really tired and I don’t want to write anymore right now so I will just do random stuff to make this blog long enough.

I’m going to just write big for a little bit, and make a random hyperlink.

Okay this blog is finished now.

My Personal Super Powers-Blog 18

Flying

I have quite a few super powers. For example everyone already knows I can fly. I have a few powers that I can’t afford to tell you but I will release as much information as possible.

Super Brain

I am MUCH smarter than most of my classmates. I don’t get the best grades, but they are good. I always finish my homework at school, and people are always surprised when I tell them I got my homework done during class. So I almost have like some sort of super mind.

Super ninja

I have great hand eye co-ordination, but that doesn’t make me a super human, just super ninja. I get this hand eye co-ordination from juggling, which I do all the time. It really has improved my performance in sports, and in ninja wars.

Super pianist

I consider my piano skills a super power. I know there are people my age that are just as good, and there is always somebody better than me. I don’t know any of these people though so I still consider it a super power.

super you

Everyone has their own abilities, and with some practice its easy to make them super.

Someone/Something I’ve Always Wanted To Be

I’ve never envied someone or something else. I never get very jealous about anything really. I’ve never wanted to be anyone other than myself. Sure I would love to be LIKE someone, or have abilities LIKE someone else. I would never want to trade places with that person though, not even for a day. I guess I do get jealous occasionally, but everyone does.

I don’t have very much time left to work of this post because I’ve been editing my blog. I am adding a categories bar to it at the top. So I guess I’ll just submit what i have written down so far.

Mundane Talents/Skills #16

Mundane I think means kind of ordinary or average, and if a talent it ordinary then it’s not really too much of a talent. So I’m going to just make this Talents/Skills.

I have a lot of talents. Like juggling. Juggling did not come easy for me. I spent the last couple months of school last year trying to learn, but with no luck. Then about half way through that summer Tim was finally able to teach me to juggle. I kept practicing, and now both me and my friend Hunter are great jugglers.

Another one of my talents is solving the Rubik’s cube. I taught myself how to do this a few years ago over the summer when I had nothing to do. I used you tube as a reference for awhile, but now I can solve it from memory in about two minutes.

I guess I have really boring summers because I don’t have anything to do so I just teach myself stupid talents. About 3 years ago I was obsessed with memorizing pi for a whole summer. I leaned about 30 digits before I decided there was no point. I still remember all of what I learned. 3.141592653589793238462643383279.

Of course my piano playing is a talent. I’ve been taking piano lessons for almost five years, I preformed at my school talent show last year and did good. Today, yesterday I guess it would be now I had ISSMA which is some sort of state contest for all sorts of things like voice, piano, solo, and ensemble. I did piano of course, and I did good and earned gold.

These are my biggest, and most defining talents, but I’m sure I could come up with some more if i ever had to.

Cleveland? #15

I have written a story about Cleveland before. It was a fan fiction of the movie avatar. Too bad i don’t just have a copy of it I can post because I don’t really know much about Cleveland. I do know that Cleveland is located at the co-ordinates 41° 28′ 56″ N, 81° 40′ 11″ W 41.482222, -81.669722, but that isn’t  going to help me write a blot about it. The fun thing about blogs is they aren’t formal papers, so you don’t have to be sure to stay on topic. Like right now, I have almost completely forgotten about Cleveland. I’m trying to forget about Cleveland because i don’t know nearly enough to write a blog about it. Okay I have a solution. I’m going to just make this up completely.

In the year 2020 the Earthed survived yet another false apocalypse. In most of the world communities flourished using the new natural energy discovered in slat water, or fresh water. Cleveland being near lake Erie like it is, but this community is the last one to still accept the water energy as a “clean” resource. They couldn’t keep their citizens from using the energy, but the were many limitations, and nobody could use the energy without a patent. The majority of Cleveland still relied on past resources, such as coal, and natural energy. These resources were nearly depleted, and without taking action soon Cleveland will not survive. Global climate change has hit the peak of its cold point, and the average temperature out side of one of the heated cities was –4 degrees. Cleveland was not fortunate enough to be one of the heated cities. People would rarely leave their homes for reasons other that groceries, and emergencies. The only good side to not having city wide heating is the terrorist threats. If the heating units malfunctioned the could lower the temperature down to –30 degrees. Many cities that could afford heating are not able to afford means of staying warm. If the terrorists happened to get a kind of EMP bomb they could destroy the nation of America itself. This is exactly what Cleveland officials want to happen. They would be the only major city left and they would have on outstanding population, with outstanding power. Cleveland has been sending information secretly terrorist on how they should design the bomb. And the date was tomorrow that Cleveland would start to thrive. The terrorists sent a bomb but Cleveland noticed it was heading off course. The bomb was heading straight for Cleveland itself. Cleveland tried to think of on exclamation, but there was only one reason this would happen.

These terrorists were still bitter toward Cleveland since after the war of 2015 when Cleveland broke the treaty of northwestern society. Cleveland sent secret agents to learn Egypt's plans of government, and reported the information back to the US there wasn’t any important secrets Egypt was hiding from us but this act showed neighboring countries Egypt’s weakness.

Cleveland was doomed, and would end up a waste land like what happened to northern Canada. Cleveland was the only thing preventing America from moving forward, but now Cleveland is gone, and America is the most powerful society on the Earth. America will go on to lead the world to Mars while Earth is destroyed by the gravity of Jupiter.

Irrational Fears. #13

There’s an irrational fear right there. Some people hate the number 13.I guess a real irrational fear would have to be something like being afraid of pi or something. Speaking of pi i memorized some of it. I have 3.1415926535897932384632643383279 memorized…is that weird? I really hope nobody reading this is afraid of pi. hmmm I’m hungry I want some pie.

I’m really starting to get tired so I’m getting distracted easily. When I’m done with this post I’m going to take a nap and set an alarm to wake me up at 11 in time for the 14th topic.

But anyways, irrational fears, irrational fears, irrational fears….Monk! Monk is afraid of everything. He is obsessive compulsive really bad. He is afraid of germs, heights, odd numbers, all sorts of things like that. He is a great detective though.

Christmas #12

Wow I’m still stuck on the poem thing. By the way I only had six couplets. oh well. Now i have to talk about Christmas. Ugh I can’t stop think about Stu and his kazoo.

Christmas okay…Christmas is fun for all, everyone likes getting and  giving gifts. Plus the food is always great! I got lots of great presents last Christmas, and I’m already excited for next Christmas… For this topic of Christmas I’m going to make a list of things I want, but first I will write down last years Christmas list. Here’s last years list:

  1. Money
  2. IPod touch
  3. Records (Give Up, by The Postal Service. Red and Blue albums, by The Beatles)
  4. Sock monkey hat
  5. ITunes gift card
  6. CDs (On Your Side, by A Rocket To The Moon.)

Uhhh that’s about it. Its a little bit different than the actual list because I don’t remember it very well. But now it’s time to write next years Christmas list.

  1. New IPhone
  2. Money
  3. More Records
  4. CDs
  5. ITunes gift cards
  6. Balloons

I don’t know why I want balloons. I was just thinking about them because we have some sitting on the table here for my aunt Carolyn’s 51st birthday. Nobody tell her about the balloons though.

I’m going to end my blog now because I need to go upstairs because my parents are going to sleep. I need time to get my blogging stuff all ready for #13.

Rhyming Couplets Part 11

This topic is “Rhyming couplets” so I guess I have to write a poem. No big deal I suppose. It’s just a poem. Maybe it’ll be fun. I know what rhyming couplets are, but I’m not so sure you do. A rhyming couplet is a kind of poem where the last word of every couple of lines rhymes.

Example: ~~~~~~= random words that aren’t important for an example.

~~~~~~~~~dog

~~~~~~~~~hog

~~~~~~~~~house

~~~~~~~~~mouse

Okay so now I’m going to write a poem:

 

There once was a man who played the kazoo

But all he could play sounded so blue

 

When somebody asked why he was blue

The poor man replied I haven’t a clue

 

He wasn’t  much different from me and you

It’s just the sad song he played was all that he knew

 

With help from his dad his knowledge grew

He learned something new about his kazoo

 

All along it was just out of tune

and with a shake of the toy it sounded brand new

 

From now on everyone listens to Stu

Watching him play his happy kazoo

 

 

ahh all done…that was hard, but i still have 7 minutes to spare.

One Place I’ve Always Wanted To go. #10

I haven’t put much thought into places that I want to go. There are cool places that I would enjoy going, but I nothing like this is a big deal for me. I don’t have a specific place I want to go. Don’t get me wrong, I love adventures. I’m just not crazy about travel. My parents have always wanted to go somewhere special, and every year we do. Then the next year they want to go somewhere else. I only go with them about half of the time because like I said I’m not crazy about traveling. Every where my parents want to go are at least ten hours away, so i always try my best to get out of it. Sometimes though I end up going with them. I usually do enjoy myself, but I still don’t think it’s worth it. Last year we went to California and it was awesome. I’m glad I went, but if I had the choice to do it again I wouldn’t. During spring break my parents are going somewhere. I don’t even remember where. I’m not this time though. I talked them out of making me come along. Instead I’m going way down south to spend the week with my beloved sister and brother (Mary and Tim). It’s not really that far south, it’s just in Lafayette, but I just enjoy saying down south. It’s fun.

This summer I am looking forward to having some adventures, like getting my friend Harley to hurt himself by telling him to do stuff. All I have to do is tell him it’s a good idea and he does it, anything. I don’t take advantage of this power too much though. I wouldn’t have him do anything illegal, or deadly. Just things close to illegal and deadly. He is going to make most of my adventures fun. I don’t have any specific ideas of what I'll do. Maybe I will leave home with a back-pack of stuff and just sleep in the woods of a few days. I would have fun doing something like this if i had someone to do it with. Most of my friends are lazy though and wouldn’t want to do anything fun. I really don’t need to go anyplace specific. I just want to go. I don’t want to drive or fly, I just want to go outside and leave for a while. So I guess one place I’ve always wanted to go is away.

Utopias Part 9

When I saw this topic three books came to mind. The Giver, The Hunger Games, And Narnia. None of these are really Utopias. None are ideal communities, just communities. The closest one to a utopia is Narnia. All of these books try to have a utopia, but none of them entirely succeed. In The Hunger Games the community is about as far away from a utopia as it can be, so I have no idea why this was the first thing to come to mind. In the giver there is a great society everything is just right, a utopia, until Jonas starts to notice things aren’t quite right. In Narnia Aslan does his best to make the society like a utopia, but there was evil in the world from the beginning and it can’t be changed. I don’t think there is such thing as a utopia, at least one where you have free will, which would be far from ideal. People have always been trying to make the world a utopia, but all attempts have obviously failed. A Utopia is simply impossible.

I think you’ve heard enough about my view on utopias so lets talk about this blog. It is #9. Which is why I wanted to talk about it. Revolution

9 is a song by The Beatles. It’s

terrifying. I don’t even want to listen to it. It’s really long too. I have to help my parents with something, so I have to go, but I will be back for the next topic.

My Life’s Theme Song (#8)

Topic number eight is “theme songs for different mood/moments” immediately i though “hmmm themes like Mario?” I guess the Mario theme could at times be a good theme song, but I know I wouldn’t enjoy that kind of song following me around all day like it does Mario. I would get tired of any song if I had to hear it constantly 24/7. Having a theme song would get boring after awhile, then it would start to get annoying. It would be so much better if you had a whole iPod playing all day as your theme song. If i could do that I would put my favorite playlist, titled “Goods”, on shuffle. If I had the option to choose a 1 theme song for each mood it would turn out something like this:

Nervous: Desperado, by The Eagles

Anxious: Dark Blue, by Jack’s Mannequin

Average: Dusk and Summer, by Dashboard Confessional

Relaxed: Getting into you, by Relient K

Very Happy: Hands Down: by Dashboard Confessional

I thought this seemed a lot like mood rings, so I used a mood ring emotion list to get these emotions. This topic is somewhat fun, but it is starting to get a little bit boring, and I have to put a new dresser together. so I’ll blog again at 6:00 (Chicago time). So long readers.

Reviewing My Favorite (#7)

The Topic For #7 is writing a review over your favorite movie,book, TV show, or music. I’m going to do it over my favorite book, or more like a series of books. I choose the Chronicles of Narnia. Everyone has read these chronicles so there’s no point in telling you what they are about, but i will anyways. The Chronicles of Narnia were written from the imagination C.S. Lewis. they are great stories, and all different. They all have basically the same characters, but that differs slightly from book to book, speaking of book to book there are 7 of them. These chronicles are so famous that there are different orders that the books go in. For example there is chronological order, and narrative order. My personal favorite order is the chronological order, I think…what ever one starts with The Magician’s Nephew. I’ve read this series at least twice before, and last year I started reading it for the third time. I have decided not to tell what the stories are about because that would take way too long. The Chronicles of Narnia is a series that every person should read at least one time in their life. It is not only exciting, but it is funny and meaning full too. There are things in these books that reflect Christianity. If you have never read these books, and I have convinced you to just comment below and I will be happy to lone you one of my household’s two sets.

Earlier this year I printed off almost ten of these-> imageand the first day i brought them to school I gave most of them away to friends, but i kept two for myself. Yesterday I gave another one away to my BFF Emily. Now I only have one left, and it is special because I used a map of my school and wrote in the important places where they would correspond on the map. I tuned out good, oh and by the way the wardrobe is hidden in the woods to the left of the football field. Don’t tell anyone though. Narnia is so much fun, you really should visit there sometime.

If I still haven’t convinced you into reading these books then you should visit this site. Here you can read the summaries that I was too lazy to write. Don’t read too much though, because then you wont be surprised by the books.

I have so much more that I want to say about Narnia, like how great all of the talking animals are, or that you should make sure to visit Mr.. and Mrs.. Beaver if you go there. But I don’t have time to talk about too much else, except Aslan.  Aslan is a lion, he can be intimidating but he would never harm anyone if he didn’t have to. He is nothing more than a big fluffy cat, yet he is so much more than just an intimidating lion. He is made to represent Jesus and he has the power to create or end a world. This is clearly demonstrated in The Magician’s Nephew. Aslan isn’t someone to fear, he is someone you should hope you meat if you visit Narnia. So go off and have your own adventures in Narnia so you don’t have to listen to mine any longer.

#6-Friends

After this blog I’m 1/6 of the way through the 24 hour blog day.

Friends. I have a lot of friends and i try not to rank them, but Brian is defiantly my #1 friend. Just to name a few, and prove that I really do have a lot of friends I’ll make a list. The order doesn’t mean anything though. Okay here I go. William, Brian, Jay,  Hunter, Garry, David, David, Alexandria, Emily, Sarah, Kyliegh, Danial, Sam, Joel, Bryan, Tori, Nate, Ben, Carter, Cassidy, Linzy, Hannah, Makenna, Hermosa, Heidi, Noel, Jade, Jasmine, Justice, Luke, Sean, Noah, and Cooper. These are just my close friends, and somewhat close friends. There’s a specific story of how I met each and every one of them. I’m not going to go into detail on any of these stories, but earlier today I did write a blog about how I met Brian. You should read it. It’s called “Blog #3”. By the way the title blog #3 doesn’t mean it’s my 3rd blog ever. It just means it’s the 3rd blog I wrote for my 24 hour blog day. If you want to see even more of my friends just click this link. <- that red link just reminded me that I changed the look/style of my blog completely.

If you can get a chance please vote, in the comments of my previous blog, on which one of the new banners I designed. I can’t decide which one to use. I’m going to stop writing now because I’m getting a little bored, I’ll blog more later, and don’t forget to vote.

Which Banner Should I Use For My Blog?

This one?EEE Banner or this one? Blog Header

I really need help deciding which one is better. If you want to help decide just write a comment saying which one you like the most.

Alter Egos-Blog 5

This is a new term to me. I’ve heard of an alter ego but I never bothered to ask, until I found out I had to write a blog about it. I asked for help and Tim directed me to a Wikipedia page about it and I got a general idea of what it means. It sounds a little like Gemini which is like having two personalities each close to opposite of the other. I am a Gemini, but I still don’t really know what to write about it. I Don’t think I show many signs of having an alter ego… Wow I’m not going to finish writing about alter egos because I just got the weirdest call. My parents used to own, and run a coffee shop called Common Grounds Cafe. We sold it about three years ago though. I hadn’t thought about that place for awhile now, but I just answered the phone and the voice asked “is this Common Grounds Cafe?” I thought that’s what I heard him say, but I couldn’t believe it so I asked them to say it again and sure enough that’s exactly what they said. It was one of the weirdest calls I’ve ever gotten. It really surprised me.

I’m going to end my blog now because I don’t have much else to say about the phone call, and I don’t feel like writing anymore about alter egos.

Methods of Destroying Traffic

Well when it comes to destroying things I have pretty good ideas, but traffic. I’ve never really thought about how to “destroy” traffic, but it sounds like fun! I guess there are many ways to get rid of traffic or redirect it, but to destroy it? It depends on what kind of traffic, air traffic would be difficult to destroy, but just normal road traffic would be very simple to destroy. All that is needed is some  high explosives, anyone could destroy traffic if they have enough money to buy enough explosives. Explosives are much too simple though, and bad for the environment. Another way to destroy traffic that is good for the environment, is to make fake detour signs that lead the majority of the cars to a recycling plant, from there its pretty straight forward.

If it’s air traffic your meaning to destroy though then that will be quite a bit more difficult. Of course you could use explosives but it would be nearly impossible to get them on a plane so you would need a missiles of some sort to bomb the planes or helicopters. That would cost to much for an average person, and no one could get away with it more than a few times.image

If this were the government trying to destroy traffic, I’m sure it wouldn’t be too hard for them. They would be able to just put more taxes on flying and driving. People would end up just riding their bikes or riding horses to work. But even if they did that there would still be traffic on a smaller scale. The only way to destroy traffic completely would be to destroy the entire human race. I doubt any one  person has even close enough power to do that, so it might be absolutely impossible to destroy traffic. Since nobody has power to destroy the human race we don’t really have any reason to come up with crazy ideas to destroy traffic. So I’m not going to think about this anymore.

Blog #3

It’s noon and right now I am waiting for the 3rd topic to be posted, so i decided i would get started on the blog even though I have no clue what its supposed to be about. Ahhh there it is. The 3rd topic is, and I quote “When someone mentions childhood what one memory pops into your head? Explain in detail.” This seems like it could be a fun topic, but I’m not sure what I should write about. I have lots of good childhood memories, like when me and my bestie Brian first met. I guess that’s what i could write about. It was summer, and my first day of kindergarten was in a couple of days. Me and my neighbor Shelby were outside messing around when a strange boy came past my house and said “Hello”. I had never seen anyone of his kind before, I would later learn that he was Asian. It scared me a little and I made him leave. I told my mom about the new creature I met and she suggested that he might have been trying to be my friend. The next day he rode his bike past my house again, and i apologized. We started talking and I thought that he wasn’t too strange after all (later I was proved wrong he really IS strange, very very strange). He talked and talked. We found out that we both started kindergarten the next day, and we were in the same class. Ever since then we have been the bestest of friends. Too bad I don’t have any pictures to add, but this is the memory i think of when someone mentions childhood.

Funniest Moments…

I guess a lot of funny stuff happens to me, but most of this stuff you would have to be there to understand. So instead of writing about MY funniest moments I will write about just funny stuff in general. Some things that made me laugh quiet a bit lately are some posts on you tube from fail blog. Fail blog is obviously a blog too not just videos on you tube so I’m going to make a link…this is the passage to the blog of failing. Hmmm this blog is not even close to long enough and i don’t really have much else to say…oh i just remembered something really funny that happened in my life but it’s a long story and I have to start from the beginning for you to understand so here it goes. A long long time ago (about 4 months ago now) all of my best friends got into a car accident. Brian Jay and Hunter. Jays mother was driving the car, and they just picked up Hunter and were on their way to a youth group event at Jay and Hunters church. Brian was coming along to see what it was like, and they were going to invite me, thankfully they didn’t. After they left Hunter’s house they missed a sharp turn and hit a tree. Jay dropped his cell phone, Hunter’s shoes fell off, Jays mom was unconscious and pinned by the tree in her seat, and nothing seemed to be wrong with Brian. All three of the kids called their parents and 9-11. An ambulance got to the scene and everyone was rushed to the hospital. Jay and Hunter were fine, Jays mom broke her ankle, but Brian had it the worst. His blood pressure was dangerously low after further inspection the doctors found that he had internal bleeding and his intestines were messed up. They immediately gave him surgery and he was rushed down to Indianapolis and ended up having 2 more surgeries there. In the end the missed about a month of school and when he finally did come back to school the first week we were in the gym practicing for our choir concert. He was sitting on the bleachers and when then it was time to go. On the way out of the gym he wobbled over to me and I asked “what'd you do this time” and in response he moaned the words “I jumped off the bleachers” I was dumbfounded. He ended up explaining that he had forgotten he had and open cut all the way down his stomach from his surgery and I laughed at him and then he laughed but it hurt his wound so I laughed even harder…

I guess this blog is long enough now even though I still have another 30 min to write, but I don’t have much else to write about so I’m going to go eat lunch. This is the last you’ll hear of me, until my next blog.

Best of 2010

This isn’t the best way to start my 24 hour blog day, but I'm going to make a list and describe my to 10 favorite iPod apps of 2010. My first app is definitely Appzilla and hence begins my list.

  1. Appzilla
  2. Fruit Ninja
  3. Cut The Rope
  4. Facebook
  5. Pandora
  6. Netflix
  7. Xfinity TV
  8. Jet Car Stunts
  9. Euchre Lite

and finally 10.Blogger+

This list isn’t necessarily in order from best to least best. All of these apps are great.

Now for the descriptions.

  1. Appzilla is a great app, it has 90 tools that could each be their own app all in one.
  2. Fruit Ninja is a game in which the user tries to slice as many fruits as they can before the time runs out.
  3. Cut the rope is a fun puzzle game that has great physics and awesome animations. The point of the game is to get the candy the the green monster.
  4. The Facebook app is kind of self explanatory.
  5. Pandora is a great internet radio and i got an app for it. Pandora has introduced me to most of my favorite bands.
  6. Netflix is a business that rents DVDs through the mail, and lets you instantly download them to a computer or TV or if you have this handy app your iPod.
  7. Xfinity TV is a service provided by Comcast. The app for it gives me the capability to use my iPod like a remote for my TV and set recordings from anywhere i have WI-FI.
  8. Jet Car Stunts is one of the best iPod games I've played. It has great physics and is absolutely wonderful, the only downside is how few levels there are for it.
  9. Euchre Lite is a free app that lets you play euchre against your iPod on the go.
  10. Blogger+ I’ve already written a whole blog about this app so you can just read that.

I’m almost out of time now because I started writing late so I have to post this now. Goodbye.
