The Binding of Busyness

Hey everyone,
Sorry about the hiatus. I've just been busy with drama club auditions, rehearsals, and school stuff in general. Now that it's Christmas break, I'm going to be free to upload videos and make posts for a whole week.

I recently got a few more games from Steam for the Christmas sale. I got, 'Half Life 2: Episode 1' (Really 'Half Life 3: Episode 1' for when I finish HL2.), 'Audiosurf', 'Garry's Mod', and 'The Binding of Isaac', which I started a playthrough on. (Sorry for the slight audio delay. Same thing that happened with the first Bit.Trip Runner video, used the same fix, but still a little delay.) I've been following Cupquake's (ihascupquake) playthrough of it, and as usual I love it. So why not get the game? Anyway, here's the first episode. I hope you all like it.

As you can all see, I'm still getting the hang of it. It's actually a lot harder than you'd think. I know I'll get better at it as I keep playing. This time I'm going to film episodes and save the time of splitting them up (like I have to with SkyBlock, which I will do this week as well.) That'll save a lot of time, and allow me to upload faster, and get more done.

Thanks for watching. I'll talk to you all real soon.

Starting Bit.Trip Runner, and More Playthroughs To Come!

Hey guys. Just wanted to post a quick update to let you all know that I'm starting a Bit.Trip Runner playthrough. Here's the first episode that I filmed on Sunday.

Recently I bought the Super Meat Boy Anniversary Pack (Including Super Meat Boy, Aquaria, Bit.Trip Runner, Bit.Trip Beat, VVVVVV, World of Goo, Gish, Machinarium, Braid, Half Life 2, and Half Life 2: Lost Coast.) I plan on doing playthroughs of Aquaria, Bit.Trip Runner (obviously) Bit.Trip Beat, VVVVVV, Gish, Machinarium, and Braid (once it gives me a resolution option, because right now I can't see the game to play it.)

The reason I'm not doing ones for Super Meat Boy, Half Life 2, and World of Goo is because I've already started them and you wouldn't be getting my honest reactions to the games. That's just how it is. Also, it'd take me a year to do Meat Boy. I'm super bad at it. (Well, not worse than average. I just get super frustrated with it. I'm getting an XBOX controller for the PC, so that should help a lot.)

So yeah, that's about it for today. I'll be doing a Thanksgiving Flash Friday this week, so if you have any game ideas for that, post it in the comments. Thanks guys!

Flash Friday: Bouncy Mouse and Gravity Duck

Hey, so today was a Double Flash Friday because I've just been super duper lazy lately. But, what are you gonna do? I'm a teenager and that's just how I am. Haha. So here's the video. I hope you all like it.

If you have any game suggestions for Flash Friday or a playthrough, just pop it in the comments. I'll also try to upload some SkyBlock tonight. For reals.

Quick Post-Birthday Update

Hey everyone. I just wanted to say a quick hello, and let you all know that I'm sorry I wasn't able to post any videos or anything else here or on YouTube or Twitter. As (I hope) most of you know, yesterday was my 16th birthday, so naturally we had family over and celebrated.

With all this going on last night, I didn't get a chance to make any videos and such. I'll make Flash Friday tonight and upload more SkyBlock. (You guys are probably getting tired of hearing that, huh?) This time I really mean it though. Haha.

So yeah, this was just a quick update on why it was so quiet last night on my Twitter and blog. Sorry for the disappointment. I'll get it all done tonight. No really, I promise. For reals. :)

Happy Gaming

Actually, I'm really tired right now, so I'll get it done tomorrow. Sorry guys.

16th Birthday and URL Change

Hey everyone,
I hope you're all aware of the new URL of this blog, ( Make sure to change all your bookmarks and such, so that you can stay updated. Don't worry though because I'm going to keep the old URL up, with a message about the change.

In other news, today is my birthday. My 16th birthday to be exact. I don't really feel any different. Well, I actually do feel kinda old, but that's just me. Seeing all the little freshman in the hallway just makes me realize how close I am to graduating and such. But that's a good 2 or so years away. Let's not worry about that now.

Anyway, I'm going to finally make Flash Friday today. I already have a game planned I think. It may change from now until the time this post is published. Don't worry, I'll be making one for this week as well on Friday, so there's not going to be any cancellation or anything.

I'll also do my best to try and upload some SkyBlock Survival. The reason I've been slacking on that is just that it takes a lot of time to re-watch all the footage, clip it to the 15-minute limit (I really wish there was a way around it. I should've switched to directer when that worked. Haha.) and make sure I cover up all the notifications. Since SkyBlock was filmed, I've fixed my notification settings, so it shouldn't happen as often.

Thanks and I hope you have a great day.

Massive amount of birthday comments may now commence.

11/11/11 11:11 Whoa!

Hey guys! So, today was super duper exciting! As most of you probably know, it was a very special day that only comes every 100 years! Well, that is except for other days like 8/8/08 and such, but anyway.

Today is 11/11/11. That's really cool because it's the only date that's all ones (and it's the only time it'll happen in our lifetimes. Unless of course you live to be over 100.)

I'm sure a lot of you make a wish at 11:11. It's a pretty common thing where I live, and today was supposed to be an epic one. (It'll be even more special in 1111!) I did make a wish of course, but I can't tell you guys what it is obviously, because I don't want to ruin it. Haha.

I hope you guys all made a good wish, and didn't miss it. (If you did, maybe you can wait until tonight for it to happen again!)

As far as videos go, I promise I'll finally upload some more SkyBlock Survival this weekend, as well as a Flash Friday for yesterday. I kinda forgot about that. Whoops.

I hope you guys are more used to the new layout by now, and are happy with it. Thanks!

11/16/2011 EDIT: 
I feel so terribly. I didn't even mention the fact that it was Veteran's Day. A huge 'Thank You' to all those who have served in the Army, Navy, Military, Air Force, and Marine Corps. I really appreciate all of those who have risked their lives in order to protect our country. Thank you.

New Blog Layout And Upcoming URL Change

Hey there everyone!
You've probably already noticed, but there has been a HUGE layout and design change on this blog. I am going to be changing the title of the blog from The Awesome Saucer-erer to 1Mudkip88's World.

I will be changing the URL of the blog from to Remember to change your bookmarks and any links you may have.

I will be making this change in one week (on my Sweet 16 btw.) so please help by spreading the word to all your friends that may not have this blog bookmarked or are not subscribed to it.

Thanks and make sure to follow me on Twitter and like my facebook page to stay updated.

Blog Revamp

I can't do it right now, but I'm sure I can do it tonight. I've been getting a lot of positive feedback on redoing my blog to generalize it more and move away from just Wizard101 and reflect what I post on my YouTube channel.

There will be a new background, title, and probably a new layout as well. I'm not sure if I want to change the title as that would be hard for me to do. I've been The Awesome Sauce-erer for quite some time now, well over a year.

I'm thinking that I'll change the web adress though. I'll have to make sure that everyone knows about it and is ok with it. It should all be done tonight so spread the word.

Y U NO POST?!?! and A Possible Blog Revamp

I honestly have no idea guys. I just don't even think to post on here anymore. That really bothers me because I was doing so well on here. I've just been so disconnected from Wizard101 lately. I just found out about Zafaria. I haven't even beat Celestia yet. Has it been THAT long?

If you guys wanna stay updated with everything that I do, make sure to follow me on Twitter. If you don't have an account, making on is super easy and fast. I make sure to keep my Twitter updated with new video uploads and info on what I'll be filming or doing. I'd be happy to take questions from there as well to my e-mail ( or [Yes I made a second. Just to keep everything general. They both can access the other's e-mail so  don't worry which you send to.]) Also I've made a new facebook page for myself that just covers my general account, 1Mudkip88. (here)

I guess I don't even realize how easy it is to make these posts. Look I already have two paragraphs. I mean, it'd probably be easier for me to just make blogs, cause I'm totally a better speaker and it's easier for me to just talk rather than trying to type my thoughts up here. Would you guys like that? If I just recorded vlogs? I could post them here and on YouTube/Twitter as well obviously. Let me know what you think about that.

Also I'd like to know if you guys would mind if I revamped this blog and changed it up a bit. Maybe change the color scheme and everything and make it more general to gaming. I mean, I love Wizard101 and all, and I've spent a ton of money on crowns to get everything up to Celestia, but let's face it, I can't play it forever. I'm going to be 16 this month, and it's just not really something I'm that interested in anymore. I promise I'll play it as much as I can though. Just don't expect a ton of Wizard101 stuff all the time.

If you guys won't be interested in my blog anymore if I expand from just Wizard101 stuff, I get that, and you can unfollow me, but I know you guys will all like my new stuff over on YouTube and what can be posted on here if you guys don't mind. I hope this post isn't too disappointing to those hardcore Wizard101 players out there that read this, but I just wanna play other games and it'd just be easier for me to post and get more things out there for this blog and make a name for myself on YouTube and such.

I hope you guys can all understand this and will continue to support me in everything that I do, whether it be Wizard101 or anything else. Thank you.

Oh, hey there. Here's the three videos that haven't been posted here. You might as well subscribe to me on YouTube if you haven't already, because I'm bound to forget to post these here. (Be warned, the first one in this post has some language so 13+. Thanks)

New Beginnings

Hey guys, so obviously, posting over the summer didn't go so well, as I was very busy with summer reading, and working on a packet for AP Biology, which I was recommended for this year.

Anyway, I'm hopefully going to be getting into a better schedule with this whole thing, by releasing videos along with a blog post every Saturday.

I still plan on keeping this blog W101 themed, but with a few other things thrown in, such as MineCraft. Hopefully a lot of you play it as well, so this won't be too boring for you guys. If you don't know about MineCraft, you definitely should buy it well it's still in Beta (1.7.3 currently. 1.8 is coming soon.) It's one of my favorite games, so I think you all would like it too.

Here's the first video, not only of MineCraft, but of many different games to come.


I hope you all had a great summer and enjoy the school year as much as I plan to.

Coming Home


Hey everyone. I'm finally back to the blogging. I'm going to work on this blog as much as I can this summer. Since I last posted, Wintertusk has been released, Nick Jonas was revealed to be the mystery composer, a new mega game card was added, and mastery amulets were put into the game.

Honestly, I'm not going to go into detail with all those things because you probably all know about them by now. I just wanted to say that I missed you all so much and I'm finally coming home. (To Wizard101, that is.)

Not Dead, Just Sleeping. WinterTusk News

That's right everyone. Blaze is back. No need to worry anymore. New followers, and old, I am here to stay.

Let's get started.

When I 'left' I promised you guys something that some people were upset about (which I'm sure you all know and they're fine with by now.)

It was the new Orthrus spell animation.

Here's the old: (It says new in the beginning because this is from when it first came out.)

And here's the updated version.:

Personally I like the old version, just cause I'm opposed to change. Haha.

Anyway, updates for the Spiral.

There's going to be a new world coming VERY soon. So soon that it's already on the Test Realm.

It's called WinterTusk and it continues the story of Grizzleheim and introduces Grandmother Raven, Bartleby's sister, co-creator of the Sprial, if you remember from the Wizard City story line.

Yep, that's her. Can't wait to delve into the new storyline. There's also a few new things coming to Wizard101, which you can read about in the update notes. Here.
Here are the two pictures given, of areas in WinterTusk.

KingsIsle has a special surprise for us about WinterTusk. The music there has been composed by "one of the hottest your musical artists in the entertainment industry." They will be giving us hints throughout the next few weeks as to who it will be. I was hoping it would be J-Biebs. But of course the first hint is:
"I’ve performed on Saturday Night Live and my initials are not J.B.!"

Rough, haha.

Let me know who you think it might be in the comments, and I'll have a new post out soon.

Samantha Learns To Garden

Hi guys, I'm going to try and crank out a post everyday this week because it's February break!

Today, Samantha wanted to learn how to garden. I helped her out with making a video and here it is.

Hi everyone! This is really exciting getting my very own post on Blaze's blog! I'm here today to show you a cool new video that Blaze helped me make. It's of me learning how to garden! It was so much fun! I hope you all enjoy it!

(Note: The audio and video get out of sync gradually through the video. So for the YouTube upload, the audio is replaced with music of Samantha's choice. Thank you.)

I hope you all learned something from that video. Gardening is SO much fun!
Thanks guys!


Thanks, Sam! I hope this will help you guys who skipped through the tutorial, or just need a quick refresher on how to garden in the game.

Tomorrow's post will be about a change in the game that has some mixed feelings.

Scammers, Hackers, and Evil-Do-ers

[The person mentioned in this post's first name was Nigie. If you are worried that you may have this person added, just shoot me an e-mail ( and I can provide you their last name. I just don't want to post it out in the open.]

Hi everyone. I just was on my Wizard101 Facebook and I got this chat:
(Read through it and I will discuss after)

can you shared your wizard101 account pls!!!!!

I'm not giving you my account and password. That's against the rules
You don't even know me


I don't even know you for that matter
Nice try. Cya

pls i see you every day in wizard

Who are you

my name there is cody dragonblade

I don't know a Cody Dragonblade

maybe your lvl is lower

No. It's against the rules. I've worked hard to level my characters. I'm not just going to give away all my hard work

i am a legendary of fire and life

Good bye
That's great
I like my account
See you


I said no


You're just making me angry

every one can trust me

It's against the rules. I've worked hard on my chars. I don't know you. I'm not trusting someone I don't know. I'm not stupid

This was a classing case of a scammer. They try to come off nice and innocent and sometimes stupid, but all they really want is your account. 

Now maybe you'd say "oh, well, he's just a poor kid who is having a hard time with the game." Well 99% of the time you'd be wrong. There's bad people out there, and if I were to give him my username and password he could easily access my parents' credit card, my e-mail, and other personal information.

Even if this was one of your friends, you still shouldn't give out your username and password. Why? Because when you registered for Wizard101 you had to sign an agreement saying that you wouldn't give out this info, otherwise they could remove your account. This is 100% true, and I have no doubt that they've had to do this numerous times because people are careless and don't read the 'End User License Agreement' when they sign up for something. (That's the thing where you have to check the box where it says you agree.)

The reason I'm posting this is just to keep you all aware of scammers and other people that break the rules and could hurt you. (And possibly your family with the information they get.) If you need to know the consequences, your family could easily lose their house, money, and even all the computers in the house, just because this one person gained access to this seemingly harmless information.

I don't want to keep rambling on and on, but just be aware of what can happen, and think before you give out information. (Or ask for it. People may think these things about you and get the wrong idea.)

If you're having a hard time with the game don't get frustrated. It just takes time and hard work. It took me a year to get my first wizard to Grandmaster (lvl 50.) If you need help, there's plenty of nice people in this community that you can ask for help. And always remember, it's just a game.

Test Realm: Celestia Housing and Malistaire an ally?

Hey everyone! The test realm is open and here are the new updates that are coming!

Celestian Housing:

Direct from Celestia - Two new Castles!
We know you've been wondering when these Castles & Lands would arrive and the industrious residents of Celestia are ready to open up shop. Here's a peek at the two new houses.

The Island Getaway

This item can be purchased for Crowns or Gold in the Crown Shop.

The Celestial Observatory
This item will challenge our players, as it will need to be crafted. See the housing turtle in Celestia for the recipe.

Those are both really cool looking! I like the Island Getaway, but the outside walk-able area (first picture) looks too small for my decorating space needs. :)

The Celestial Observatory is AMAZING! I love how it has the three different sections and the teleporters (second picture) are really cool! It even has a dueling circle! I love it! Great new incentive for crafters!

Next part:

How does your Garden Grow?
Since we've released Gardening to the Spiral, you've given us some feedback that let us see how players are Gardening, what's missing, what's confusing and what needs to be made more fun. Here are some updates to Gardening that will address some of these issues
  1. There is a new tab in your Gardening window for pots and items.
  2. The base of plants will now glow when they are ready to be harvested.
  3. New Dorm rooms will start with two pots of soil.
  4. To avoid confusion, the wording "Time to harvest" has been changed to "Time until Harvest" to better reflect the time is indicating how long before you can harvest that plant.
  5. Gardening Treasure Cards can now be trashed by right-clicking them in your deck.
  6. Also to avoid confusion, the icon indicating your plant needs magic now has a white pip to represent magic, and no longer a yellow pip which was easily confused with the 'needs sun' icon.
  7. All plants now like pixies.
  8. Stinkweed will now grow faster!
  9. Once a plant is in a pot, you cannot pick them up!
  10. You can now harvest plants while you are in the Gardening window.
  11. Gnomes will no longer trip you up as you run around your Garden.
  12. Treasure Cards that affect all plants now clarify that they only affect plants in the current zone of your house (indoors/outdoors)
  13. Pots and plants now count towards your housing item count. There is no longer a 'gardening' item count. Each pot, plot and plant individually counts as an item in your house.
  14. Enchanted soil spells now cost the correct amount of energy shown on the spell.
  15. For those of you who navigate the Spiral using your mouse to move, you will no longer cast a gardening spell when you release the mouse button used to walk.
  16. The Imperial Palace contained an area that you could plant on, but not reach to harvest. You can now click on plants in those areas to harvest them.
 Ok, so since I haven't started gardening yet, due to my opinions on it, I can't really comment on this, but I don't like the idea of plants counting as housing items. I find that stupid. Anyway, next update.

Life is change. Here are some minor changes in the worlds and creatures of the Spiral.
    Wizard City
  1. So as not to confuse our new players, Pet Snacks and Reagents will be removed from the creatures in Unicorn Way.
  2. Boris Tallstaff has taken up a new location in the library.
  3. Players will be given the quest "Grim Tales" at a higher level.
  4. More chests have been added to Unicorn Way
  5. Players will be able to get the quest "Pesky Pirates" after they have completed "Stop the Maker".
  6. Grizzleheim
  7. Orn in Grizzleheim has a new quest!
  8. Krokotopia
  9. The clue to direct you to Oka's chest is a little clearer to decipher.
  10. Mooshu
  11. Ahn Fu has decided to take a new ancestral name and is now known as Ahn Nao.
  12. The Emperor is no longer missing from his bed when the player is on the quest "An Imperial Cure".
  13. Dragonspyre
  14. Dungeon time indicators have been adjusted to more accurately represent the approximate time it will take a player to complete the area.
  15. Celestia
  16. Selwyn Skywatcher and Unimatus have learned the error of their ways and will no longer cheat.
  17. Celestia creatures that were appearing to resurrect after defeat should now stay defeated.
  18. Speak up! Celestia characters that had no voice will once again speak their mind! You will download individual files for those that were missing their voice chat.
Other than a new quest in Grizzleheim, and Selwyn Skywatcher and Unimatus no long cheating, nothing too exciting there.

Here's some membership updates.

Current active subscribers who have paid with a credit card are now part of our Wizard101 Membership Program! As part of our Wizard101 Membership Program, players who have made a subscription purchase with a valid credit card in the last 30 days, or have an active recurring subscription will have these added features:
  1. Energy will refill twice as fast.
  2. Your backpack will grow to 120 slots.
  3. Your Crafting Timers will now reset twice as fast.
  4. Your friends list will expand to 120 people.
This does not apply to players who use their credit card to purchase Crowns.
This does not apply to players who use Gift Certificates or Gift Cards to make their purchases in Wizard101.
You will have these benefits as long as you have an active renewing membership. These benefits expire when your membership expires.

Please note, when your membership expires (you are no longer an active subscriber) your backpack will return to 100 slots and you will not be able to put more items in your backpack until you empty out the overflow. Your friends list will also return to 100 maximum, and you will not be able to add new friends until you remove the overflow.

So that's pretty cool for subscribers. I don't need to mention my views on the discrimination of crowns players

Here's some shopping updates.

    Crown Shop
  1. Some Gold prices have changed.
  2. The 'Sale' Tab has been renamed to the Featured Tab and will now Feature items that are both on sale, and not on sale.
  3. Henchmen will now sort by level not school. You can easily reorder the Henchmen in List View.

  • The following items will be removed from the Crown Shop, and from Zeke where applicable:
    1. White Mare Mount (permanent, 7 day and 1 day rentals)
    2. Purple Glider Mount (permanent, 7 day and 1 day rentals)
    3. Faithful Dragoness (permanent and 7 day rental)
    4. Celestian Sword
    There's always the chance these items will return in the future, but for now, they will be removed from the Crown Shop & Zeke. 

  •  So nothing terribly exciting there either.

    Here's the next (and possibly coolest) part of this coming update.

    1. Golden Pearls and Pearls will be slightly easier to find.
    2. Arcane Ampule recipe now calls for Mutate Minotaur Treasure Cards, not Elucidite Treasure Cards
    3. Celestian Stilletto recipe now calls for Giant Treasure Cards, not Simplify Treasure Cards
    4. Pets
    5. Ice Hounds will now cast their own spells, and won't make the player cast for them!
    6. The Polar Cat now gives 1 Dragonblade Card as intended.
    7. Jade Oni and Earthwalker pets will now have the chance of manifesting spells that match their school.
    8. Mounts
    9. The Charity Meowmodon has had its speed increased to 40% to match the other permanent mounts.
    10. Housing
    11. The Housing menu will now indicate how many free Housing slots you have.
    12. Owners of the Castles & Lands that contain a PvP circle can now boot any players engaged in a duel in their house.
    13. Players can no longer sell a house that still contains pets.
    14. Grizzleheim wallpaper & tile are available at the Grizzleheim furniture store!
    15. Spells
    16. A new Treasure Card Pack has arrived in the Crowns Shop: The Hand of Doom Pack! Summon world bosses to fight at your side!
    17. Efreet's Weakness effect can now be removed by Cleanse Charm
    18. Level 60 Ice Henchman has an improved deck and will taunt less frequently.
    19. Energy
    20. So as not to confuse our new Wizards, the Energy globe will not appear until a player has a pet or completes the Gardening introduction quest.
    So, easier crafting, better pets, increased Meowmodon speed (should have been +40% from the start,) more control of who's in our house, safer pets, new Grizzleheim housing supplies, and what's this? Yeah, 'The Hand of Doom' is going to be beast as heckhound! I can't wait to pull out a Meowiarty card and fight with that cool cat! And it's not little bosses like Lady Blackhope, (although she IS pretty powerful [Ambrose to Zeke's fan-fic]) it's going to be JUST world bosses! (Lord Nighshade, Krokopatra, Meowiarty, Jade Oni, Malistaire, and Mithraya [possibly Astraeus and Ptolemos too!]) It'll be SO cool!

    So, hop onto that test realm and let me know how that is!

    Wizard101 Central Banner Contest

    Hi everyone, just wanted to make a quick post to tell you the story with my banner.

    So the other day (Sunday) was the day that the W101Central banner contest ended. It said 12:00pm EST, without thinking I figured that meant midnight when the date would change to the 24th, as this is how most contests end. Just to make sure, I checked the post on the homepage. It hadn't been marked as closed, so I didn't think anything of it. That night at 7 I put the finishing touches on my banner design and worked really hard to make it look nice. I go to the submission thread, and guess what? It was closed! So I pm'ed Jester and he told me he couldn't accept my submission and that he's had to turn down many others.

    Now, if I were running a contest like this, I would value all submissions. I honestly wouldn't care if it was a few hours late. I mean, if it were the next day I'd have to say no, but if it's the same day, then there wouldn't be any hesitation with me accepting it. True, if it was just one person, I might turn them down, but if it was a bunch of people, I'd snatch up those entries in a minute, I mean, it's for the good of my website, why not accept it?

    So anyway, I couldn't get Jester to take my work, but here it is. (Yeah I put a watermark on it.)

    As usual, you can click to make it bigger. I mean, I think I did a really nice job on it and it would've had a good chance of getting picked, but I guess I just need to hurry to submit net time. So, let me know what you think, and don't forget to enter MY contest. (Yeah, I WILL take entries on the night of the 31st. ;D)

    Hi everyone! I just wanted to give a big "thank you" to all of you out there for supporting me in my time of blog sickness, I guess you could call it. I really appreciate all the wonderful comments and such.

    The contest WILL continue and I encourage all of you to enter if you want to. I just need a comment on any post (up until the post concluding the contest) giving me your name (the name you go by in the W101 community) and an e-mail or central username. I understand that I've "lost" a few potential entries because of the song choice. I'll just know for next time, maybe to take song suggestions from you guys and use them in a poll, rather than just my ideas. After all, blogs are more than just the blogger. (They're YOU!)

    Also, I'm definitely going to start getting some more in-game content as suggested. I'm going to get back into the game. (I need to fight Nereus [I think. The one in the castle with the starfish blocking the door] in the grotto. So if anyone would like to help me or are at that point also, or you just wanna tag along, you certainly can.)

    Thank you all so much. I'm going to try to be a little less concious of how many comments I get and more on the hit counter ;D

    Thanks again.

    Contests x2

    Hi guys. It's another snow day. That's 3 in the past week (and we had yesterday off for Martin Luther King day.) At this rate, we'll get out in July. Haha.

    Anyway. I've just been noticing a lack of feedback since I've starting blogging again and I just want to make sure that you guys are still listening. I think I'm doing good stuff. I'm having a contest, I do polls, I mean, I love you guys. I just need to know you're there sometimes I guess. I've only gotten 3 entries so far in the contest and I haven't heard any feedback on my Facebook deletions. (Which I suppose isn't a bad thing.) Please, though, even if it's just a quick "hi I love your blog." I'd be happy. I really like hearing from you guys.

    Now, I'm not here to just whine and complain.

    I've also got some cool news for you guys. Wizard101 Central is holding a banner design contest. Since I love graphic design (and obviously Wizard101) I've decided to enter.) I'm not going to be able to show you guys my work until the contest is over (in case people try to pass it off as their own.) and even then, I will put a watermark on it.

    Thanks guys.

    Back to Wizard101 and The Phantom Zone!

    Hey guys, I finally downloaded Wizard101 onto my new computer! I'm finally coming back into the Spiral!

    So as I'm downloading all the files onto my computer I see this:

    You're going to have to click and make it bigger to see it, but in the top left corner where you can see the file download process it said: "ThePhantomZoneWorld - World Data" Now, for those of you that don't pay attention to the names of the files that quickly flash by as we load up W101, there is a file for everything in Wizard101; the different gear, objects, areas, etc. So, if I'm correct in studying these file names for the year+ that I've been on W101, this means that there is a "Phantom Zone" somewhere in one of the worlds (World Data is where the areas show up.) I haven't played through all of Celestia yet. I wouldn't even say I'm halfway yet, so this might be a legit area, but I haven't heard it anywhere before. So, if any of you have any ideas of what "The Phantom Zone" might be, just let me know in the comments.

    Before I go get into Wizard101, let me just remind you about my contest here. To enter just post your name and a way for me to contact you (W101Central username, e-mail, blog, etc.) in the comments. Thanks

    Facebook (Part 1) and Ketchup

    Ok, so a few of you know about a page that was created on Facebook about Jason Willowheart. The title of the page was explicit so I will not repeat it. The reason I found out about this page was because it was suggested to me. Now, I of course reported the page and it was taken down, and myself, Jason, and the creator of the page worked things out, but this leads me to a big issue.

    Treat others the way you want to be treated.

    Yeah, I know it's a cheesy thing to say, but it's true. Don't do things that you wouldn't want done to you. We need to do our best to keep this world a nice place. Now,m I don't want to get all crazy guru-esque on you guys, but I just wanted to throw that out there.

    I know I haven't been porting a lot, but like I say on Twitter on occasion "High School Isn't A Musical." Midterms are coming up (For those who don't know what those are, they're big tests halfway through the year that test your knowledge of all that you've learned so far in the class that year.) and I've been busy studying and whatnot.

    When I first started this blog, my goal was to post every single day like Friendly. Now, I broke that way back in August. (Not including skipped-a-day posts.) I really want to try getting back into my blogging groove, but it's difficult, and I really appreciate all of your support.

    Anyway, back to today's topic. I've been getting really frustrated with all the application requests and posts on my wall with inappropriate things, so I decided to go through my friends list and weed out those who I don't know. So, I made a list of all those that I've removed. So, here is the first of many to come. Now if you are on this list and do actually read my blog or know me, then just post a comment letting me know that. Thank you. Here it is:

    • Aaron Sandmask
    • Abdullah Al-shkanbeh
    • Adam Mythhunter
    • Alex Checkerez
    • Alex Drake
    • Alexander Moonwraith

    • Alicia Hellgirl
    • Alistar Soulslayer
    • Alyssa Blood
    • Alyssa Mistbreath
    • Amanda Moonhorn
    • Amanda Willowheart
    • Amber Dark
    • Amy Soulwielder
    • Angel Winterspear
    • Angela Louie
    • Anna Icegem
    • Anthony Blade
    • Anthony Nevergiveup Fortney
    • Anthony Nguyen

     Ok, again, if you are on that list and know me and read my blog, then just post a comment and I'll be happy to add you back. Thanks.

    And now for the ketchup. Not many of you have commented on my Music Video Post. If you don't know what I'm talking about, then after this you finish this post go read that one. In short, I'm having a contest for my Wizard101 music video. All the details are in that post. Yeah, I'm pushing the link. Mainly because I've only had one entry. Not good. The contest will end on February 1st so, just make a comment saying you'd like to enter with your e-mail / central username / or some way for me to contact you to let you know if you win. Thank you.

    Also I have a cool thread sent by Isaiah Boomcaster (one of my devoted readers) from The Central ( with all the best Level 60 gear. Here it is. That's going to be really helpful. Thanks Isaiah! Also, he sent me the link to his blog. He's just starting out, so give him a good ol' follow. He really loves Wizard101, so I'm sure it will be a fantastic blog!

    That's all for today, and be sure to enter the ;D Thanks.
