App of the Week: Drankenstein, Ridin' Fresh

Lets spend some time talking about an app that is meant to be played on your smart phone as a video and is quite similar to a game we use to be familiar with so very well. Games that are like the Grand Theft Auto Series. To add-on to this Zombie Apocalypse mess that’s been so prevalent in our national news lately, I’ve decided to make this week’s App of the Week, Drankenstein, Ridin’ Fresh!

Drankenstein App

What does this App do?

Stated both on the iTunes and Google Play App stores:

“Join Short Dawg as he blasts through the crowded streets of Houston, capping gangsters and collecting his favorite purple beverage to transform into the invincible Drankenstein, smashing through cars with a rocket launcher and earning bonus cash! How fresh is your ride?

Enjoy songs from Short Dawg’s album “The Adventures of Drankenstein”

  • Rollin’ Wit a G
  • Ima Stunna
  • H Town
  • Bone
  • Engine Light
  • *Plus new tracks downloaded right to your phone!”

Where can I find this App?

Android’s Google Play and iTune’s App Store

How much does this App cost?

It’s $0.99 in the iTunes App Store and the Google Play Store. But there is a free version to download. It’s a demo version, meaning that you won’t get everything that the paid version has to offer and you may encounter a good amount of ads.

Would I use this app?

Yes, I use to play Grand Theft Auto 3 all the time. I still have it in my basement. If I wanted to play something like it, I should buy me the Drankenstein app! I wouldn’t be writing about it if I wouldn’t use the app. One thing about games and I, I don’t finish them.

Hide and I'll Seek: Introduction

Aston is a normal junior. He gets average grades, has an average life, and average issues. If he doesn’t do his American history project, he and his partner Mace are in deep trouble. The only way that Mace and Aston can finish their project is if they stay after school.

What starts as a boring night at school ends up becoming a night of terror, danger, and murder.  A killer starts  playing a scary and  dangerous version of hide and go seek with Aston’s class. The purpose of the game is to find his classmates in order to save their lives. If Aston doesn’t get there fast enough, he will risk the lives of his classmates as well as hinder his own chance for survival. The worst part is that the killer will do anything in his power to make sure Mace suffers the most.

You can’t give up on the game. You can’t stay in one place. The  killer WILL  find you and then you have no chance on hiding.

Time is running out.

You have to hide or He’ll seek.

Doc's Picture Hunt: Week 2: June 14

This weeks search:

  • the perfect family
  • the ideal woman
  • the ideal man

This weeks search is more about how you percieve life while we look for images that remind us of an ideal life. First I want to give you my definition for these three choices. What I find to be the ideal woman is someone who will support her family and friends, a great mother (for those women who have children), respectful, intellegent, and so much more. The ideal man would be respectful and intellegent, just like the woman. He’d be the perfect gentalmen, mindful of a females needs, and etc. A perfect family would always be my own family in my eyes. But everyone has their own views on what they believe the ideal woman, man and family could be. Can we depict what we believe them to be in a picture, though? This is your challenge of the week. Find ways to create a photograph that would remind you of these three choices and share them with @EhhWassupDoc_ on Instagram. Posted below are the rules.

  1. All pictures that you take must be your own pictures. (Don’t go in google just stealing pictures. That ain’t right lol)
  2. When entering your photo in a chance to be shared on Doc’s Castle Media, you must tag @EhhWassupDoc_, #DocPictureHunt and what your picture represents on both Instagram and Twitter for us to see it. If your page is private, we will not be able to see the photos . Please take out the time to consider that.
  3. Do not enter explicit photos. We will not post them on Doc’s Castle Media.
  4. All Pictures that you enter must be in by Wednesday, June 20th, 2012 at 12 noon to be considered on Doc’s Castle Media next blog for Doc’s Picture Hunt.
  5. Remember, this is about how you percieve the world. There is no winner to this hunt. Just have fun!

See what Google came up with when given these choices:

A Perfect Family

A Perfect Family

An Ideal Woman

An Ideal Woman

An Ideal Man

Would you agree with what Google perceives all of these to be?

Teenager's Aren't the Only Ones that Sext

I’m going to take a little of the guilt away that MTV places on a lot of teenagers when they run a commercial on their channel about sexting and how it can ruin your life. Teens aren’t the only ones who do it! Where are all the commercials for the adults?

When reading the Washington Post Reader on Facebook this morning, I ran across an article that was a study in which claims that adults sext, too! Written by Sarah Kessler and titled Parent’s Sext, Too, the article provides lots of surprising statistics telling us that parents enjoy the sexting thrill that we all may have dabbled in while texting one of our favorite texting buddies (wink-wink).
Sexting Parents
Kessler points out in her writing, “In a recent survey of 2,097 adults by Harris Interactive, one in five moms and dads of children younger than 18 said they have used their smartphones to sext.” When you really think about it, that can be a lot of adults. See what playing on the phone gets you when your bored.

What isn’t surprising about the study is 40% of those people who are more likely to sext is people in the age group of 18 to 34. To me, that is a young crowd. When I think about it, we’re the one’s who are the technology savvy folks, spending our entire days on Twitter and Facebook posting what’s on our minds and what we plan to do next. Hearing 10% of people who are 55 and older have exchanged explicit photos at some point in their life is what sounds a lot more disturbing to me.

So teens are definitely not alone in these cases of sexting. Everyone needs a pick me up when their day becomes slightly dry, I guess. How do you feel about hearing that adults sext, too?
