Favourites – SCROLLBOSS

One of my favourite websites is also an inspirational one to my pixelart hobby.
I discovered it many years ago when I was looking for sprites to create for a game engine called M.U.G.E.N.

If you were an 80’s kid you are going to absolutely love it! it includes amazing handrawn pixelart from retro video games and cult movies!

He even has a store and free resources and kind tutorials for everyone to benefit from!

Give Scrollboss a go and make sure to add it to your favourites!




Starting from square one…

Life is like a board game at times, we have good streaks and then all of the sudden like ‘Snakes and Ladders‘ we step into the wrong square and end up where we started.

That’s when we have to take a moment to first of all not give up and re-think our strategy.

Giving up is easy, sitting on nothing and wasting time is even easier.

That’s when we have to value our selves, remember our morals and values. That’s when we have to pull out the ‘Life Emergency Kit’ (whatever that is for you) and put it to good use. Mending our cuts, repairing our brakes, rebuilding.
Remembering why we chose to play the game of LIFE in the first place and sticking to our plans with slight or big adjustments made.

I believe Social Media can be dangerous to someone with low self-esteem or anxiety/depression problems, as we live double lives in it, we feel like our friends (hundreds of them) are constantly watching us and that we cannot ever slip!
But if we just took the time to look, we could see each other in the same boat. Maybe all it would take is a simple question #RUOK?, besides games are better when you are playing with friends.
Social Media makes us anti-social in real life if we don’t know how to use it, if we don’t know when to turn the smart device off and live our REAL LIVES…

When all else fails, it doesn’t hurt to step back and take a look, take a break as long as it takes, do what makes you happy – pull your self together and roll the dice again because there’s a WIN there for everyone.


International Exposure

It’s always a great feeling of accomplishment when you know you have reached the right audience.

This morning The Shell Shock Network did just that, this time all the way to the other side of the world!
My friend and fellow South American Kevin Mac was the featured sports story on a Guyana cable TV news channel.

I feel proud to be part of the team you see playing and the ones you don’t who work just as hard as  those behind the scenes, who make everything possible and preserve the memories.
We all work for the same thing, we believe in the same message.
Today we were heard all over Georgetown!

You can watch the full video below and on the Latin Heat YouTube Channel.
