At home, if I'm not using my Lego or Netbook, I make stickmen comics. It is mostly random, but I'm reaching my final parts now. It started from a simple picture, to a 2-part story of who rules the world. I would put it up here, but my camera is charging.

The whole thing started when I was doodling at home, as I was bored. I drew some pictures, but then I was thinking of something else. I thought something plain, and then I thought of 'Stickmen'. I started by drawing a picture of 2 stickmen.

Now I'm at the stage when a man has cloned himself and stopped his clone from ruling the world. I'm at the epilogue, and I think I'll stop after I finish that.
Here's a picture I drew on the computer to show you what it's like.

Black Box Part 3

Notch was mad, but when they swam down to the bottom of the sea, Notch was in shock. The whole plane was broken. Everything was in huge chunks of metal and shattered glass. Then, the box was in sight.

Notch swam to the box, and it was stuck. Under a piece of metal. Notch was trying hard to get it out, but it seemed like it was glued together. Frank and Eric went to help, but then when the piece came loose, the current pulled them all in the wreckage. The metal fell on Frank. Frank tried, and the others helped, but this time it was stuck. Notch was scared, as now there was no escape and one of the divers was going to die.

Meanwhile Faaiua was watching the plane, when he saw something shocking. A group of Tiger sharks were swimming to the plane.  Faaiua left immediately. He told the police that the others had no chance of surviving. “They just swam towards the plane,” Faaiua said to the chief, “So I left the exact time I saw them. They won’t live long.”

But what he didn’t know was that the sharks only headed for Frank. Notch and Eric watched in fear as someone was dying in front of them. When Frank was gone, the sharks left. “Let’s find that antidote, shall we?” Eric asked. “I’m ahead of you.” Notch said, going down the long passage.

With the lights out, it was like the plane was a haunted house. You didn’t know what was next to you, or if there was a way out. But then, out of nowhere, the water started gushing in. Since Notch and Eric took off their masks and didn’t stop the air flowing, they only had the air in the plane.

They started running, but another chunk of metal fell. Both of them lived, but they were on different sides of the metal. Notch was safe, but Eric was stuck with water flowing up his body.

“Eric!” Notch screamed, “are you alright?” “Don’t worry about me,” Eric said, “go find the antidote before you die too.” So Notch began the search on his own. He had one shot, but it might be his last.

The Dragon Machine Rewritten

On a rainy Thursday George saw dragons. Like him, the dragons went unnoticed. He fed them, and took them to his house. But the dragons started making lots of mess. He had to own up for everything that the dragons did. He went to a library, and read an encyclopaedia. The book showed a place where the dragons would be safe.

So he built an Ender dragon machine. He flew towards the island, and the dragons followed. But the machine broke down. He got out, but the dragons were gone. An emptiness filled George. His parents found him after a lot of searching. When he got home, he had a whole cake to himself. And, his parents got him a dog. Or was it?

Then, he woke up from his dream.

Here is an animation that I made about a particular animal in Antarctica. The movie has the info that I found out. Also, it is rated PG, as it is gory. Please leave some feedback.

Balloon Rocket

In Extension, we had this experiment where we made our own balloon rocket. This is a presentation showing what we found out and tried.

Minecraft Part 1

I was telling my friends about Minecraft. This is what I told them.

There’s this game that I always play at home. That is Minecraft. Its a building game. I like it because you can create houses. 

And you can craft things. You can also cook stuff like chicken but first you have to go mining, as only then you can make a furnace, but then to get cooked chicken you need to kill a chicken. Or you can type up this /gamemode 1, then get chicken and then type this up /gamemode 0, so you don’t have to kill. But you need cheats for that to happen.

Minecraft is kind of fake, because everything is pixelated.  And diamonds are not stronger than gold. In real life, gold swords look kind of ugly.

The things that I like to craft is a pickaxe and a enchantment table. With a enchantment table you can make your armour and weapon stronger. But you need xp (experience) to enchant it. To get experience, you need to either kill things, or get things by mining. If you have no xp when your enchanting, then you can’t enchant ANYTHING. If you have a LOT of xp and you enchant, then you can get an enchanted diamond sword, and the sword is enchanted to Bane Of Arthropods or Fire Aspect, which sets any creature you hit on fire for 5 seconds.

There are also Achievements, for the people that want to get the best things.

Black Box Part 2

After Notch stopped talking, the chief of police decided that it would be best if Notch came along. “Okay,” he said, “We need someone as small as him to help us.” “I heard that!” Notch yelled. “Everyone,” said the chief, “we’ll start tomorrow.”

When the next day rolled over, Notch was in some old clothes, jumping up and down. “I’M GOING TO FIND A PLANE! I’M GOING TO FIND A PLANE!” When the police arrived, Notch said that his brother, Rory, was gone the day before he saw the plane. “Okay,” the chief said, “Here’s the plan. Notch, you and these professional divers, Faaiua, Frank, and Eric, will go with you.”

Just as they were about to set of, someone come out the water by the shore. Notch went to get a closer look. It was Rory! Everyone watched Rory as he was spewing up water. When he was done, he said: “Oh, hey Notch!” “HEY!?” Notch screamed. “HEY!? WHAT THE HECK ARE YOU DOING!?”

Rory told them about what happened. “So on Planet C-13*,” Rory said, “I found the antidote. Then, when I was coming back in the U.F.O,---” “A U.F.O!?” The divers said in disbelief. “Yeah,” Rory said. “Then, the fuel tank ran empty. As I was falling, I noticed a button that I hadn’t before. It was a transforming kind of thing, and maybe that’s why you saw a plane.” “But then how did it disappear?” Notch asked. “Well,” Rory continued, “There was a lever thing and it said ‘visibility’, and I pressed it.”

“Then,” Rory said, “when I was at the bottom of the sea, I grabbed the box with the antidote, placed some TNT down, and set it off.” “Then where is the antidote?” Faaiua interrupted. “As I was flying up through the water,” Rory said, “The antidote slipped out of my arms. It got stuck under the wreckage, and then I went to get it. Since I couldn’t get it out, I turned the black box on, and then went swimming up. So now you have to go and get it.”

DLO week 4

Here is ANOTHER presentation that my group (Lee, Brandon, Faaiua, Kris, and me,) made, as we had to do a DLO about seals. If my group had more time, then we would've had a movie to go along with it. This might be the last Digital Learning Object that we will make.

Life of Peter---A parody of Life of Pi

When Peter got home from being abducted by aliens, he didn’t want to have any more crazy things happen. When he got home, he saw Cravaty, Mitch, and him on the TV. “Wha?” Peter thought. “How did I get on television?” Then, he remembered.

Mitch had told them that he got most of his adventure on camera, and that he was going to send it in to 3 news. Then, his dad came. He heard the news on the radio, and there was a trip to Antarctica for the winner of the craziest movie competition.

On the radio, it was time for the winner to be announced. “And the winner for the craziest movie goes to...” The radio guy said, “Peter Altro and his Unidentified Unknown Adventure!” “WHAT THE HECK?!” Peter thought. “THAT’S MY NAME THAT THEY SAID, AND THAT MOVIE WAS MITCH’S! HOW DID THIS HAPPEN?” Then, Peter ran to his room. He searched the movies on his laptop, and then he saw the movie that won the competition. Mitch had hacked into it, and made the movie, on Peter’s computer, then sent it in.

When Peter’s family arrived in Antarctica, things were going badly. The plane landed in the middle of a blizzard, and the house that they would be in was just showing. Everyone ran inside. “Wow,” said his mum, “that was one big blizzard.” “Glad we ain’t there anymore!” Peter said joyfully. “Now nothing can go wrong!” Then, they heard a huge crash. “What was that?” asked the pilot? Peter looked out the window. He could see the wind blowing the plane over. It was barrel rolling. “We’re doomed.” Peter said.

Every day things were getting worse. The power went out, then, the whole family was running out of food that wouldn’t poison them, as they had no refrigeration. When 2 weeks passed by, the pilot got scared. “We’re supposed to get back to the U.S.A today! What do we do?” “Don’t look at me!” the Altro family said. That was the last straw. “I CAN’T TAKE THIS ANYMORE!!!” The pilot screamed. He ran outside in the blizzard, and started to spaz in the snow.

Peter was now terrified. The snow was getting inside, so was the wind. There was no food, no electricity, and the pilot is spazzing in the snow. He looked behind him, and then he saw a coffin. “What the?” He thought. He was now seeing things.

Then, he remembered of the plane.

The plane was rolling in the air when he saw it, and not on the ground, so there was a chance that the Altro family could get home. But finding the plane would be tricky. It was 2 weeks since they last saw the plane, so who knows how far it went. Peter had one chance, and it could take his life.

Peter got the warmest clothes in the house, and went off. He was getting cold, but he didn’t let it stop him.

After 16 days of walking, he felt metal. Glass. A plane! He managed to get inside, and he started the engine. “If only Mitch was here,” He thought, “Then he could fly the plane. After all, he can fly U.F.O’s and Space Shuttles!”

Soon, Peter was getting tired. He was falling asleep, and he hadn't saved his parents yet. Then, Peter crashed the plane right through the roof. His parents stood there, looking at him. His dad offered to drive, while Peter slept. “Should we take the pilot with?” asked Peter’s mum. “He’s been spazzing there for 20 days.” “Just leave him.” Peter said tiredly. “He’ll manage.”

When Peter got home, he immediately went to Mitch’s house. “At least something good will happen,” He said, “And it won’t involve Antarctica.” When peter got there, he found out that they were going to the planet by the name of ‘Mouse City’, as Mitch had heard about a guy named ‘M.J.M’.
