A dream about Anti

April 1st, 2017 (this dream was dremt the night before)

“TOP OF THE MORNING TO YOU LADDIES, my name is jacksepticeye and welcome to–”
With buzzing and excited energy, Jack starts his 5pm video with a bang with a brand new game for his viewers to see. His bubbling energy and bright smile made any viewer feel safe and fuzzy inside. The game seemed weird and warpy, like as if someone snatched chunks of play-doh and mashed them together to create a biome, whilst the sky above lit a poisonous venom colour (sort of looking like the Soda Drinker Game). Neverless Jack tells his story about how he found the game and that he seemed interested in playing it.

“Let’s get into it!” Jack announced hitting play. “Now i heard that this is some sort of circus game, with all kinds of like… tricks and pranks, all that sort of thing. Which is great because–” he lunges his body out of the shot of the camera, making him out of sight for just a few moments, it was so quick that it almost didn’t seem human. “APRIL FOOLS!!!” he bellows, his face so close to the camera it basically took up the entire webcam frame. Chuckling to himself he sat back down and started playing.

The game consisted of weird carnival games and events; giant wheels that go high into the air, whack-a-mole and arcade games, hall of mirrors and hook-a-duck… pretty much a circus fair simulator! But each event or ride seemed… broken. Something was sure to start freaking out and fly in some sort of direction or straight up not do as its told when Jack interacted with it. Despite it breaking, Jack got many laughs out of it all.

Throughout the game, something didnt feel right. The game gave off a weird effect, as if it was pulling you in more and more as you played. Not as if “i want to play more of this game” sort of way, it was more like there was some sort of mental magnet, making you never want to leave this place. Jack himself looked like he was in a trance every now and then whilst he played. Out of nowhere inside the game, an elevator appeared, just sat in the play-doh concrete floor, and Jacks eyes suddenly sparkled with curiosity.

“Ooooh… let’s go in here!” He suggested, walking up to it. Clicking the mouse and pressing several buttons to try and interact with it, he managed to get inside the elevator. “AHA!” He announced, “finally something that didnt break of me–eeeeah?” His final word turned into a confused mumble when the game loaded. He was inside the elevator, but there were four doors, one on each side, and there was a barrier stopping him getting through them all.

 "Can i not leave??“ Jack asked, trying everything he can to escape. “Aaah fuck, i should of known this would be broken EVERYTHING IN THIS GAME IS BROKEN.” he complained. Sitting up in his seat he tried again.
“Is there really no escape–” the video suddenly sent silent, and the webcam changed, an image of anti sat there, smiling at the camera; you could barely see him, but his smile shone through.

Suddenly a sharp noise screeched out of nowhere, making Jack flinch in shock. The elevator started moving, like as if it was descending. The rumble of the room got faster and faster, the elevator flying into the unknown abyss of the game.
“Ohhhh god i dont like it i dont like it i dont like it” Jack said, tensing up to the point his shoulders almost met his temple. “I can literally feel the force of–” he shook his head frantically, juttering almost and another anti glitch appeared; blood running down its face and grin, “the fucking pull of going down in an elevator!” Jack sat in his seat, wincing and wishing for the elevator to stop vibrating. “Ohh god please stop…”

“̸͡Y̵͜o͟͜ú̷̕͢ ̸͡҉̨̕w̸̨͝i̴͝ş͟h̸̀͝͡ ͝͏̛t̶̸́o̸̢̡͢͢ ̷̶͡ś̡̢͡t͏͞҉̴ơ̶͠p͏͠.̴͢.̵̧̧͝.̸̸̢̀͞?̢̡̨̡̛"̸̧̨͜͟

That familar voice. It would send shivers down your spine. Both of excitement, and fear. "P̷̴̀͠͞a͏̷̨t͡͏̨͡͏h̶̢ȩ̸̕̕͞t̷͡i̵͠͠ç-̸̡-̷̶͢ ̡̢̧̕͜y̷̵͟͜͝o̶̵̕̕͡ų͝͞ ̵̛͘͟c̷̕a͜҉͝n͟͏'̶̢͢͟͟t̡̨͜-̷̷̛̀-̨́ ̵̷͜͝҉i͘҉̨ ͏̧͠͞c̷̸̛a̵͘n̶͘'̢͜͏ţ̴ ̧̛s̴͏t͡҉͢o͏̢̨͟ṕ̵̵̷.͝͠͞"̵̛͢͡͡
The facecam suddenly turned black and disappeared, leaving the gameplay in a state of silence, only the rumble of the elevator making a small trudling noise. All of a sudden, the camera view of the game breaks away, switching it from first person to third, and Jack appears, panting. The webcam hisses and static noises break loose before reappearing, with Anti in Jacks seat, and Jack in Anti’s game.

"̴͡Y̢ǫu̸ ̨͜͜c̷̕͟a̕n̴͜t̴͜ ̷͜͡è͡s͏̡̛c͠à̕͘p͞͡ȩ,̸̴̧ ҉̷͜y̸o̵u̸ ͜c̀͝à͡ń̵̡'̷͘͘t͜ ̛͟e̵s̨͘͟c͜a͠p̧͠͠e̡̢͘!͘͜͞” Jack stands and stumbles from the force of the elevator before running around, frantically trying to pry a door open.
“͏̧͡Ý̵ò͝u͢͜ ̵̧́c̴a̶n̛ ́͢tr̸̨͟y̷̢-͘͜-͟͠ ̵̧i̛͡͞ ̧c͝ą͡n̵̛͡ ͝ţ͘͟r̢͢y–̷̕ ̸a͢͞l̕l ̷͟y̴͠͠ou̸ ̨w̕à̕̕n͏t̴́,҉͝ b̷ų̵t ̢ẁe҉͝–̸ w̸̕͝í̛l̴l͝ ́b̷e̶͠-̕͞-́"̴ The facecam sparks and creates static, Anti throwing his head in wild directions, making the game itself freeze from time to time; almost as if to stop Jack from trying to escape. 


"̠́͗̑̆ͫ̚͢ͅW̛͎̥̳͎͌ͮ-̫̪̯͇̃̓ẁ̴̫̻͎̩͔̗̣͒̒͆ͦ͐̅e̢͈͎̖ ̉͆҉̦̤w͇̟̬̋ͤͫͤ͛̓̀ì͉̹̯̖̘l̳̦͐͋ͩͭ͌͜ͅl̴̊ ̦͎̯̲̭̭̈͆ͅb̥̈́̐̐ͪ̃͌͢ę̬̫͇̅͑̚-̙̝̬̟̓͐ͅ-̖͔̩̞̤̓͆̌ ̼̈́͒͗̈͌̽͞T̴̳͔ͦͩ͆O̩̟̠͛ͫ̎̒́G͖ͤͩ̉͑Ê̦̗̋̀T̶ͭH̲̒̇ͤ̌E̹̦̪̫͓̟̻̓̒̓ͥ̓ͣR̡̥͔̻͚ͣ̿ͪ̃̍ͬ̚!̵̲̞̺͇̻̲̥̊ͥ̈́ ̮̀͛ͦ̒̓̊f̵̽̏̾o̹̜̩̰̻͖̩ͯ̒ṙ̡͔͚͇̰̊ͥ͗ͪe͈ve͚̦̞͕͈r͎̣̱̣̬̠͚.̠͖̼̲͙̖̽̽͂ͤ̐̂͜.̟̒ͥͨ̄͟.̖̪̱̖̥͚̀͆ͬ̌͋ͅ"̲̦͔̱͇̼ͩ̈́ͮͪ́́̎

"NO!” Jack yelled, kicking at a door one final time before giving up. “I might not be able to hear you fully because your shitty signal doesnt work, but FUUUUCK you.” Jack stood in the centre, smiling to himself from his witty comment. The facecam froze in shock, Anti didnt like being talked back to.

“̶̡̨̙̠̲̥͛̇͐̃̽ͤͯ̄͑ͯ̈̀͗̋͐͟F̸̡̠̙̰̯͔̳͓͉͈͎̫̠̆̐̆̓̅ͨ̀͐̄̉ͣ̐͢͢I̷̥͔͚̝̺͙̤̰̫̦̩̬̞̎ͦ͛̂ͫ͆́̏͂̕͠͠N̴ͩͬ͗ͮ̀͢͏͙̹͕̘̤͙E̯̘̱̪͕ͦͧͯͣͥ͋̽̓ͩ̑̀̀̚ͅ!̶̧̧͚͙͇̣͎̦͕̮̙̹̩̬̒̿̑ͬ͒̓ͨͩ̾͒̾́̂̅ͅ!̃̈ͮ͌ͪ͊ͯͣ̈ͪ͂ͯ̚҉̮͚͉̟̮̥͚͓͍̯̳̕͟͝” Anti lunges at the camera, arm outstetched and hands clawed, ready to almost grab you. The facecam turned into TV static and disappeared, and the elevator around Jack started to break down in glitches. The walls ran with vibrant broken colours, the textures switching sides several times. Worried, Jack retreated to the centre of the room.

“Shit, shitshitshit.” All of a sudden the speakers and several rides from the circus rides glitch through the ceiling and straight through Jack, but the wires and cords latch onto him and pull, trying to make him go through the floor into the unknown. “NO–” he yelps, trying to fight against it. “Fucks sake Anti i dont want this– i’m so sick of you trying to control me–!”

“̵̡̡Ì͟m ͏͞s͜͡o͘͝ ̡s͘͟͡ic̷̴k̢ óf̸ ͞w̢͠-͘w̧͟a̛͝-̧w̵̡a̶̡i̡̛t͝i͏͜n̛͝g̀͝ ̢f̶͢͝o̵͝r̡͞ ͏ỳ̨̛o͏u̴͠ ̢͘͞t͢-̵͞t̶ǫ g̢͏i̵̡͜v̧͢ȩ͟ ̸͟ùp,̢͝ ͢i҉̨͢ ̧͟͞m̧͝ì̵͢ǵht͟ ̶as̀͢ ̨́͞well̴ ͢k-k͞҉-̶̴k̴͢҉I͘͠L̴L͞ Y̕͝OU̸̢͘ ̸̢Ǹ͢O̢W̸͜!̨͜” The cords dragged Jack down more, making him go onto his knees, the glitches dripped down the walls more and more, creeping towards the floor. If jack can’t escape, the glitches will reach the floor, make Jack fall through it, and he will be lost inside this circus game forever.

Just seeing this happen… you felt a strong incline for Jack to win. If all goes to plan Jack will be lost forever, and Anti will take over. Jack struggled and fought, cursing under his breathe as he tried to wriggle out of the cords. The glitches dripped more and more, getting closer as time grew short.

But despite it all, Jack broke through. Anti’s chants and glitched facecam and video, made Jack more determined to win. He didn’t want to be a puppet of his game, a toy, a shell.
“FUCK YOU ANTI!” Jack announced, pulling hard at the cords. “YOU GLITCH BITCH MOTHERFUCKER, YOU’RE JUST DEPRESSED BECAUSE YOU CAN’T HAVE A BODY OF YOUR OWN TO SHOW OFF YOUR MASSIVE EGO.” Blue sparks flew off of the cords, the glitches have hit the floor, and they were growing toward the green beacon. But with determination, the cords snapped, and the whole video had plunged into darkness.

“Thank you… for hearing my call” a faint voice said. A Jack’s voice said. A small giggle was followed after that, and the video ends there. Jack had defeated Anti for the time being.

(Some bits were made up in this dream but only to fill in the blanks, but most of this DID happen in the dream. Sorry its super long!!!)

tutorial: cropping & editing icons on mac

Howdy everyone!

jerry-mod here with your first tutorial! we’re going to go all the way from start to finish, so depending on how much you know, you’ll probably be able to skip some of this. i, however, am leaving no stone unturned. so before we dive in, let’s gather our materials!

  • first of all you’re gonna make sure you’re using a macOS. duh right? it’s in the title.
  • if you have a mac, you have Quicktime, but you know i figured i’d mention it.
  • this tutorial will use Photoshop CC6, however i have used this method on CS5 as well. (really, as long as you can use timeline, you SHOULD be good. the positioning may be a little different though.)
  • you’ll want a frame ripper for this method… unless you’re using pre-made frames or print-screening. i personally use SnapMotion but i’m sure there are more comprehensive ones. 
  • Photoscape is a bonus feature for this tutorial. i’ll show you how to mass edit file names with and without it.

okay! this tutorial WILL be image-heavy so if you’re ready, click the cut!

Was just looking around and found there doesn’t seem to be any mention of data transferring i7 thru a Google account so here’s a little tutorial/my experience doing so. I changed my phone about a month ago and I transferred my game thru my Google account rather than thru the data transfer code, though I did note it down as well as insurance! And I suggest doing the same! I also recommend linking your Google account in case you accidentally remove your game and didn’t have a chance to save your transfer code!

Anyway, you don’t need to download the game thru Google Play in order to link it to a Google account. I downloaded i7 thru QooApp and could link it just fine!

(1) To link your account. Go to ‘menu’ then click on the button with the 2 phones.
(2) The 1st tab is for getting the data transfer code. The 2nd tab is for linking your game to your Google account.
(3) Click on the button on the left. It should say ‘登録する’ (register). Then you’ll be asked to log in to your Google account. Mine is already linked so the button now says ‘解除する’ (release). The button on the right is for transferring data from the Google account you’re now linked to. (Seems a bit strange to transfer data here when you can do so at the Start screen…) Well, you can also use it to check that you’re linked to the correct account, it’ll show your rank and user name if you press it. Press the blue button to cancel and pink one to confirm.
(4) Anyway, now that your account is linked, just download the game onto your new device and transfer data at the Start screen. Click the orange button in the middle with the 2 phones. Choose the top option that says Google. Log into your Google account and you’re done!

Boy With the Bright Umbrella

Day/Prompt: Day 3 - Confession
Pairing: SouRei [Sousuke Yamazaki / Rei Ryugazaki]
Author: ProfessorDumbleBrows
Rating: T
Summary: Certain things remain in people’s minds and will not leave until confronted. Sousuke experienced this once he saw the boy with the bright umbrella. He couldn’t help but think about the person, wonder what was it they wanted before they walked away, and hope he would see them again. But little did he know, the umbrella boy has been there all along.

One time I’ve been asked by one of my blog’s reader to make a post containing tips for incoming freshmen and to those still studying in college. Here are my tips and I hope these tips will be able to help you survive/enjoy your college years. 

  1. If you’re taking a course that you don’t like/love, and there are means that you’ll be able to shift to the course you really love, please do so. Save yourself. Spending four to five years of your life studying something you don’t like is like killing yourself slowly. You’ll never wake up in the morning excited of what you will learn in the school. Every day you’ll have to force yourself to continue even though you know deep within you that as each day passes you lost a little part of your soul. I don’t want you to reach the point where you don’t know who you are anymore. Aside from having your heart broken by the one you love, losing yourself is also a tragedy. So please, save yourself while you can.

  2. Find those people who will never treat you like a cigarette. Don’t you ever allow people to use you, specially your talent and skills, and then step on you after they have used you. Let me tell you this, the college/university life is like survival of the fittest. Everyone is trying to graduate on time, and are willing to do almost anything and that includes using people.

  3. Take a lot of pictures. Yes, by all means try to document every memorable moment of your college life (and your whole life) in pictures aside from your usual writings on your journal. Maybe you can recall almost every single moment in your life. You can tell it to your future kids again and again. But what if your memory fails? One of my biggest regret in life is that I didn’t take any pictures of those memorable moments. Aside from I’m too sure of my memory ( I can still recall my days on first grade and a lot of other things), I’m too shy to pose in front of a camera. It will be nice if you’re able to show your children or even to your grandchildren those pictures of your youth, and be able to tell them the stories behind those smiles, tears, and wacky faces of you and your friends.

  4. Find your ‘home court’ coffee shop. Admit it, not all of us are always comfortable in our own houses and we need a place where we can study and unleash our inner introvert. By having a home court coffee shop, you know when it is full or half empty, knowing the right time when to study there or just have your favorite coffee drink. The baristas will remember your name, your usual drink and eventually you and the baristas will be able to establish friendship and overstaying in the coffee shop preparing for an upcoming exam will not be a problem. You’ll be able to ace your exam and gain new friends. A win-win scenario.

  5. Please make sure that you do advance reading or at least read your lessons. The professors in your college/university is way too different from your previous teachers. They won’t teach you all the things that is necessary in your course. Some things are meant for you to learn or discover all by yourself. And based from personal experience, the things your professors don’t teach you, usually appear in your exams, so better lessen procrastinating and make sure that you use your time wisely.
  6. Don’t be too hard in yourself when you got low scores or fail an exam (but not with the final exam, it is a different case of course). As they usually say, ‘It is okay to lose a battle but make sure you win the war’. Use these failures in the preliminary and midterm period as a driving force to strive/study harder. But by doing so, please don’t forget the real essence of why are you studying. You’re studying to actually learn something that will be beneficial to your chosen career in the future. You’re not studying just to pass a certain subject or just to finish college and start working as soon as possible. This is what I hate in our present educational system. A system that values passing the subject more compared to actually learning something, resulting to a lot of students cheating in their exams. I remember someone said that, ‘Make the most out of college. You will never again be at a place where your only goal is to learn. Learn a lot, learn often, and learn with reckless abandon.’ And for those engineering students out there, one professor said this, ‘If you cheat in engineering classes, you will kill people later. For your own sake and everyone else, quit or learn the material.’

  7. Try to meditate once every day. I can’t teach you how to properly meditate but you can always ask Google how to do it. I’m saying this because of all the pressure you’ll encounter in your college life, it is okay to learn to train your mind to stop thinking things for awhile and just relax. This will also improve your concentration and based from my personal experience, it also helps you to be able to pick the right answer in a multiple choice exam type (if solution is not required of course) when you don’t know the correct answer. :)

  8. Find good music. I mean find good real music. Not just the ones which are on the top billboard charts. Some good songs don’t really make it to the spotlight. I’m saying this because not all the time you’ll be able to motivate yourself. Sometimes listening to good music do the trick. Don’t be afraid to try listening to other music genre because you’ll never know what you’ll find by clicking the play button of a suggested track in your YouTube/Spotify account, maybe it will be your new favorite song.

  9. And lastly, try to enjoy your college life. You’ll face a lot of challenges and unexpected things will happen throughout your college years but all these things will make you a better person and prepare you to face the real world - the life beyond the corners of your school.
