Pointless Athletics!!!

Ah hu, you heard right.
I don’t understand it all, what’s the point.
Humans say we are different and the most evolved beings on the planet, really we haven’t strayed far from home. Hang on, don’t lost me, this will have something to do with Pointless Athletics!!!

Animals in the wild show off their skills to each other to determine the popularity of themself, the strongest earn the right to all the attention, all the glory. The ones that don’t have the skills get left moping around by themself because everybody thinks they are pathetic, nobody talks to them, who cares, it’s only the ‘unpopular’ one. It’s all about the Best.

Humans are the same, no matter how much teachers can fill us up with this ‘everybody’s a winner’ crap and the ‘participation points’ we are no different to animals.
The kids that win all the races, the kids that win the shotput, triple jump, long jump. They all get seen and noticed and are popular. The kids that don’t get left out like the pathetic trash everyone thinks they are. It’s Rubbish.

And with the ‘Everybody’s a winner’ crap and ‘It doesn’t matter who wins or loses.”
Firstly! You tell the “It doesn’t matter who wins or loses,” saying to a gambler that has lost his house and all of his money because of losing. Does it work? No.
Everybody’s a winner aye? I don’t see them handing out 1st place medals to everybody, and along with that the, “It doesn’t matter who wins or loses,” well if that’s the case then why do they bother with medals, ribbons, certificates. Why bother even placing the people in the competition with 1st, 2nd and 3rd. Why? Imperfect.

Simple competition to Some. A chance for acceptance to Another.

And the Points that you earn so that your house can win at the end of the year. WHO CARES.
Why do people get so worked up about it, I watch people cheering for there team to win. So what, it’s a team. I don’t get people standing there carrying on.
Never have, never will. Never.

At the end of the year the name of the winning team is engraved on a piece of metal. Who cares. A piece of metal with a word written on it and some man saying, “Green team wins,” and suddenly everybody in the Green team stands up and cheers. Neither.

I so don’t get the point of the team house thing that I can’t even put it into words. Ah.

It makes no sense and is completely pointless! To you, if you are sports crazy and what-not you probably think its great! None the less. I can’t see the incredibly amazing thing that you all like so much. So THERE!

I‘ll Be back later to rave about something else.
Keep thinking those thoughts.

Sheiver me timbers!

Okay thats not like me . . . I was sailing the open seas.
Until! In the deep see I saw 7 pieces of 8.

I think I’ll stick with this.

See Ya.


The Cuckoo Clock Of Doom – R.L. Stine

Goosebumps- The Cuckoo Clock Of Doom
By R.L. Stine

Whoah! Now this book has an amazing thing about it.


The author wrote this book in such a way that when reading you get the feelings from main character, Michael.

Michael has a younger sister called Tara which is without a doubt one of the most annoying siblings you could ever end up with.
She is always embarrasing him infront of friends or getting him into trouble.
The author does such a good job at transferring the anger from Michael into the reader. I found myself getting really angry and wanting to bang the table.

It all changes one day, his dad brings home an old clock from Anthony’s Antiques shop. His dad tells him and Tara to not lay a finger on it. If he caught either of them touching it they would be in big trouble.

Michael saw this as an opportunity to get Tara in trouble . . .

Have to stop their folks.
Read it and see what happens.

I particually liked the ending, it was well pieced together and I was left waiting for more.
All I was left with was the preview of another book at the back.

I hope there is a sequel to this.
I was left going “Awww! Don’t end there!”

I rate it 10/10

Good Book

You Belong With Me- Taylor Swift

Song- You Belong With Me

By- Taylor Swift


You’re on the phone with your girlfriend, She’s upset
She’s going off about something that you said
She doesnt get your humour like I do

I’m in the room, its a typical Tuesday night
I’m listening to the kind of music she doesnt like
And she’ll never know your story like I do

But she wears short skirts, I wear t-shirts
She’s cheer captain and I’m on the bleachers
Dreaming bout the day when you’ll wake up and find
That what you’re lookin for has been here the whole time

If you could see that I’m the one who understands you
Been here all along so why can’t you see?
You belong with me
You belong with me

Walkin the streets with you in your worn out jeans
I cant help thinking this is how it ought to be
Laughing on the park bench thinkin to myself
Hey isnt this easy?

And you’ve got a smile that could light up this whole town
I havent seen it in awhile, since she brought you down
You say you find I know you better than that
Hey, Whatcha doing with a girl like that?

She wears high heels, I wear sneakers
She’s cheer captain and I’m on the bleachers
Dreaming bout the day when you’ll wake up and find
That what you’re looking for has been here the whole time

If you could see that I’m the one who understands you
Been here all along so why can’t you see?
You belong with me

Standin by, waiting at your back door
All this time how could you not know that?
You belong with me
You belong with me

Oh I remember you driving to my house in the middle of the night
I’m the one who makes you laugh when you know you’re about to cry
I know your favorite songs and you tell me about your dreams
I think I know where you belong. I think I know it’s with me.

Can’t you see that I’m the one who understand you?
Been here all along so why can’t you see?
You belong with me

Standing by or waiting at your back door
All this time how could you not know that
You belong with me
You belong with me

Have you ever thought just maybe
You belong with me
You belong with me

(Thanks to Mariana for these lyrics)

Ben’s 3 Step Drawing

Sup-peroo Everybody.

The other day I decided to have a crack at drawing Toon Link from the Legend of Zelda Wind Waker. I was overall very happy with the end result.

Here’s the stuff:

First I looked up a picture of Toon Link:

Now I looked at this picture and thought, I don’t want him holding some wand thing, or holding his hand in the air as if he is about wack a fly off his arm.
So I changed the stuff I didn’t like . Here’s my version.
What do you think? I know his face looks different, personally I didn’t like the face on the original so I changed it. But I didn’t stop there. Time to add some colour . . .
Now that he has a coloured appearence he looks alot better! Click on the image to see the full sized image. But I didn’t stop there, I decided to add a background.
I made the background in a more sketchy form so that Toon Link wouldn’t blend into the back image. I also darkened up the lines on Toon Link and Navi (the little floating thing to the right of his head) to ensure that when you look at the picture you see Link more than the background behind him.

You go have a go! It’s pretty fun!
Remember click on the pictures to get a fullsized image,
You can download them if you want.
I have the finished one on my mantlepiece now.

See Ya!
