Put us to the test!

Review Retreat

Review Retreat blogger Jen checked out our Return Address Labels and did a little experiment:

I decided to put my laminated label to the test. I drenched my label in water and was happy to find the label remained undamaged. The writing did not smear, no damage was inflicted on the label and the water simply rolled off of my label. I couldn't ask for a more perfect label. Label Daddy certainly exceeded my expectations. My labels are bright, bold, durable and match my personality perfectly.

Lamination on our labels (standard on some packages, including our Camp Pack Labels, and can be added to others) truly is what sets us apart from others. Thanks for noticing Jen!

Sometimes I can tell a portrait is going to go wrong from the very first mark I make on the page. When that happens it's usually best just to go with it.

Gaming Through a Writer's Eyes - Anton Strout

Instead of my usual ranting and raving tonight, I am incredibly honored to present an essay written by one of my favorite Fantasy authors, the charming and talented Anton Strout. Given his status as a writer and a gamer, I asked him for a few words on both subjects combined. Surprising the hell out of me, he was gracious enough to accommodate despite an incredibly busy schedule. Without further ado, here's what he had to say…





Hello, and thanks for having me. Before I begin my guest spot here at Drinking Coffecola, let me get my introduction and a bit of shameless self-promotion out of the way so you know who you’re dealing with.

I’m the author of the Simon Canderous urban fantasy series for Ace Books which include Dead To Me, Deader Still and the latest book, Dead Matter. I can also be found in a variety of anthologies—some of which include Simon Canderous tie-in stories—including: Boondocks Fantasy, The Dimension Next Door, A Girl’s Guide to Guns & Monsters, Pandora’s Closet, Spells of the City, and Zombie Raccoons & Killer Bunnies (my favorite name of them all).




I currently live in the haunted corn maze that is New Jersey and, most importantly, I am the worlds most casual and controller-smashing video gamer. I am also prone to hyperbole.

Making a videogame comprises many a part, but what makes a game come alive? Is it the gameplay? The music? The character or level designs? The story? Certainly all of the above, and if one of those elements is lacking, a great game can become a mediocre one. But since I’m a story slinger by trade, I’d like to talk about the writing in games.

As a writer/gamer, I am in the habit of dissecting the things I experience. My content creator eye can’t help it. I need to know what makes things tick. Where does the heart come from in a game? More and more, I think story has grown over the years. Just take a look at Resident Evil 5 dialogue now compared to that of the “master of unlocking” clips from RE1. There’s a ton of games I could talk about, but I’m going to go with a few here that struck a chord with me in my development as a writer.

People often ask me to define why I write what I write and funnily enough, my answers tie in to gaming. When I elevator pitch my books for people, I usually tell them I write Jim Butcher Lite urban fantasy novels, basically because I miss Ghostbusters and Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

It’s no coincidence, then, that these two television and movie franchises both have games.




Ghostbusters has come a long way in story development since its Commodore 64 version (where I basically maxed out my Ecto-1 with all the best equipment, then sadly my friend’s mother threw away our account numbers for all our stuff). The story of the recent game version was critical enough that it was actually written by the screenwriters of the film and playing it is feels like being immersed in a brand new Ghostbusters film. It helps that it also has many of the original voice actors, art design and such on top of a fun plot, but the writing really helps pull all those elements together. It’s no different than what I’m trying to do when I structure a novel. Short of writing actual gaming code, I need to create all those atmospheric elements so the reader immerses themselves into a world where they believe it’s possible to be chased down by a demonic carnivorous bookcase.




When I first picked up the Buffy the Vampire Slayer video game, I was worried. Movie and television tie-in games are almost always questionable, but I have to say the 2002 game and it’s follow up in 2004, Chaos Bleeds, was written like an actual episode and caught the essence of what the show was. Despite a lot of the humor in it, a lot of the game creeped me the hell out as well. The writing set a tone and a mood that were furthered by all the other elements. When I learned that my fellow urban fantasy writer and friend Tom Sniegoski actually wrote them, I was jealous as hell that he got to do it.




Roger Ebert recently wrote that video games can never be art. I like a lot of what he has to say about movies, in this case, I think he’s dead wrong (despite the large amount of things he can quote in his original article, found here.)

Defining what is art is subjective, as proven by thousands of years of people trying to define aesthetics. I know what it is to me. It’s anything that’s crafted that I can experience and it evokes something in me from my interaction with it.

And games do that for me. The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time, for instance, was one of the first games to make me cry. Even with only subtitles and no voice acting, the storyline brought me to tears with Link’s shift from adolescence to an adult and the way the world changed between that. I laughed out loud and wanted to dance with the king of the Gorons when Link found the song to cheer him and played it for him. I can still remember him shouting, all caps, HOT HOT HOT! If that ain’t art, then I don’t know what is.

Writing is an integral and more and more important part of the game creation process, probably even more so in games that are 100% original content, but that’s a guest post for another day…

Again, thanks for having me and if you are so inclined, please go check out the books!



Infinite thanks to Anton Strout, controller-smashing player and author extraordinaire. If you're in the market for an exciting Urban Fantasy page-turner, take the man's advice and go check out his books. If you'd like to learn more about Anton, you can visit his website HERE, or follow him on Twitter -- @AntonStrout is his handle, and I can tell you first-hand that he tweets some pretty amusing stuff.

Sounds of the Ghosts

It enters the explanations that the parapsicologia has found forthe existence of the calls “assombrações', one of most recent is of the “sonorous waves”.

The sensation to be being observed without obtaining to detect the presence of somebody in the neighborhoods; the sensation of discomfort and, to the times, of cold and depression is frequently associates what if costuma to call assombração.

Some scientists understand that the assombrações differ from the appearances for not presenting any type of visual manifestation, and an explanation starts to be delineated for these cases: sonorous waves of low frequency, or infrasonic.

Despite the idea in itself is not new, it only started to be proven scientifically through the recent personal experiences of a specialist in computers of the Coventry University, Vic Tandy. As if it notified, Tandy found if in the Laboratory of a considered building haunted when it started to feel the discomfort sensations generally associates to the assombrações. The technician in computer science arrived to have the impression of that a form appeared in the limit of its field of peripheral vision, moving if accurately as a person. As he is sufficiently common in these cases, it he felt themselves frightened and he ran away from the environment. In the following day, as it practises brandishhes, Tandy arrested its sword in a lathe to carry through an modification and perceived that the blade was vibrating of strange form. The cause could be the existence of sounds of low frequency in the place.

Without losing time, Tandy and the Dr. Tony Lawrence they had carried through tests that had proven the existence of these sounds circulating in the environment, that they exactly reached its bigger intensity in the place where if it found the table of work of the technician. In this in case that specific, the waves were provoked by a fan recently installed, that made air to vibrate in the accurate measure. When the fan was modified, the sound left to exist and the “assombração” disappeared. The results of the experience had been published in the Journal of The Society will be Psychical Research.

Vic Tandy and Tony Lawrence had obtained to determine that the sonorous waves in question vibrated in 19 cycles for second. In its experiences, NASA already had noticed that frequencies of 18 cycles for as could cause a series of physiological reactions, since fidget and fear until cloudy vision. Simpler examples of this can be tried with the serious frequencies of a device of common sound. Despite they are not infrasonic, them they cause visible effect in the behavior of the people.

When the experience of Vic Tandy and Tony Lawrence was published, many researchers had understood that the cause of the assombrações had been discovered, and that these nothing had of supernatural. The thing, however, is not so simple as it seems. In first place, it is good for remembering mainly that this type of explanation does not apply to the calls “appearances”, in the cases where photos or films had been gotten disclosing the existence of the phenomenon.

It is common the parapsicólogos to use a series of devices for ambient measurement that are not affected by infra the sounds. Of this form, the registered alterations must have to see with another type of phenomenon, total distinct of the detected one in the Coventry University.

Designing a Label Shouldn't Be Stressful, Mama!


At just 19 years old, Nina Say (yes that is her real name!) is a wife and mother to little Zoey Ann. I don't think I was fully capable of taking care of my cat at age 19 so hats off to Nina and her blog The One Fantastical!

Nina received our Small All Purpose Labels to review, and when making her selection she opted for one of our Disney labels to, as she puts it, save herself from "major designing block". Our Disney Labels each come with their own specific font and color so all you have to do is tell us what name you want on the label and you're done!

No worries, Nina, we had it taken care of! You just keep on being an amazing mama! Check out Nina's blog, The One Fantastical, and her full Label Daddy review.

We Couldn't Agree More...


Virginia at Lady V Dzine thinks our allergy notes are a mommy must have, and we couldn't agree more. She received our Allergy Notes Labels for her son Zane to make sure everyone that comes in contact with his items is aware of his peanut allergy. Check out Virgina's review here, complete with some great photos of the labels being put to use. Thank you Virginia for your post!

My daughter has a peanut allergy as well and we have been using the same Allergy Notes labels on our own sippy cups for a full year come June and they are still stuck on and looking great!

Virginia and other moms of children with peanut allergy, have you checked out NoNuts Golden Peabutter? I found it just last week and we have been using it in our household and loving it. I'm surprised how "peanutty" it tastes and my son (who is 5 with no food allergies) is thrilled that he can have peanut butter again (he knows it's not but insists on calling it that). I bring it out for friends to taste test when they are over and they agree while it may not taste like premium regular peanut butter, it actually tastes like a no-name version which is good enough for us!

Risen (360) Giveaway, Baby Won't Sleep, and Random Bits

It's been one heck of a day. For whatever reason, the baby decided that he would wake up at around 3:30am this morning, and no matter what the wife and I did, we couldn't get him back down. That was pretty painful (and, I'm sorry, but as lovely as the Sprout channel is, I'd much rather be staring at the inside of my eyelids at that time of day) but we figured he’d probably crash for a good nap in a few hours... but he didn't.



With mommy and me drained due to lack of sleep, we staggered through the day waiting for him to finally run out of juice and zonk out... but he didn't. With the internal energy reserves of a long-distance marathon runner, he kept going, and going, and going, and going and still hasn't fallen asleep as of the time I'm writing this entry.

Pray for us.



Games: Gonna clear out the inbox and post a few random bits here –

>In case you missed it, here's a LINK to my Just Cause 2 (360) reviewed which just went up today. There's a lot to like about it, but it's one of those instances where less would have been more.


In other Just Cause 2 news, I just got an e-mail announcing two new DLC packs for the game. I can't say that I'm honestly raring to get back into it, but one of the items detailed was “Parachute Dual Thrusters: twin parachute-mounted jets which transform Rico’s trademark parachute into one of the most nimble and powerful attack platforms.”

I haven't seen what it looks like in action, but it sounds just crazy enough to get me to put another hour or two into the game. If nothing else, I'll just screw around and pick up a few more of the easier Achievements while putting it through its paces. This DLC hits the 360 on May 26.



>Not exactly news, but the Lost Planet 2 multiplayer demo is now freely available on the various DL services. If you didn't win one of the codes earlier in the month, this is your chance to get caught up. If nothing else, give it a whirl and try out some of those crazy Vital Suits.



>Still working my way through Trauma Team (Wii.) Just about through with all of the initial campaigns, and the more I play it, the more convinced I am that it's probably going to end up being my favorite Trauma title of the series. I think so far, the best paths are Forensics and the EMT. The not-best? Endoscopy, by a mile.


The forensics is deep enough and interesting enough to be a game all by itself (and, I buy that in a second if it was) and I like the quickly shifting back and forth between patients when playing as the EMT. One is totally cerebral, and the other is about fast action and reflexes, so it's a good balance. As far as Endoscopy goes, it's just really dull... there are only so many applications for sticking a tube somewhere, and actually having to physically thrust my arm forward in order to make the probe move is a real pain in the ass. It's just irritating, really, and could easily have been done by pushing up on the D-Pad.


I was hoping to get the review done this weekend, but I hit a snag. Each path (out of six) will let you get only so far before you hit "locked" missions that can be opened by making progress with the other doctors. I've done as much as I possibly can, but I hit a puzzle in the Forensics section that I can't solve and I'm stuck. Hopefully this roadblock will be removed soon, because I'm quite eager to push on. That little bump aside, Trauma Team has been a fantastic little title that comes highly recommended.



>The final Risen (360) giveaway: As promised, I’ve saved my final copy of Risen (360) for readers of the blog. I have only one more brand-spanking new, completely sealed and untouched copy of the game waiting to find a new home, and all you need to do to win it is give me three topics that you'd like to hear us discuss on a future episode of the GameCritics podcast.


Feel free to write as much or as little on each suggestion as you'd like, but definitely come up with at least three separate ideas. Leave your three (or more) suggestions as a comment at the end of this post, and I will pick a winner at random from everyone who comments.

That's all you have to do. Pretty easy, right?

Since this post is going up on a Friday night, I imagine that quite a few people will probably not see it until Monday (when they should actually be working) so the winner will be announced on my next blog update, probably Monday evening. That seems to me like a pretty generous timeframe to enter, so hopefully everyone is interested in the game will get a chance to do so.

Good luck!

Tinkerbell's Friends!


Mommy blogger Cindi received our School Pack Labels to review with her daughter Alicia on her blog Little Yaya's. Alicia picked one of Tinkerbell's adorable friends, the blue fairy, as the icon she wanted on her labels. I thought this was such an original choice as most little girls look at Tinkerbell as a first choice in the Disney Fairies collection. It's nice to see that Label Daddy includes Tinkerbell's friends too!

Cindi created an awesome photo slide show of her daughter's labels that you must check out! We really loved it Cindi, thank so much!

So here's a question, readers - what is the name of the Disney Fairy that this blogger reviewed? You can see her icon on Label Daddy here. The first person to post the correct answer here will win a $20 Label Daddy gift certificate!


Giant squid is the invertebrate animal greater

The invertebrate animal greater of the world is the giant squid of the Architeuthis sort dux, that it can arrive to measure 18 meters and to weigh 900kilos. These mysterious beings live in the deep of the ocean, between 200 and 1000 m of depth, and they had been never seen with life, reason for which is known very little on its habits. Owners of the biggest eyes of the nature (they can arrive 30cm of diameter), already had left marks of its ticket in the tempering regions of all the oceans. The specimens studied until had been today found deceased, floating for there, or in the stomach of some whale. The giant squid was famous in the world all through the workmanship of Julio Verne Twenty A thousand Léguas Submarine.

Giving Away Risen - 360

Games: Going to turn in early tonight and get some sleep, so no big update tonight EXCEPT to say that I'm giving away copies of Risen (360) via my Twitter account. If you're already following me, then you've probably seen the contests. If you're not, then... you're not.


No worries, though -- If you're anti-Twitter for some reason (and I know some of you are)  then you'll still get your chance. I'm saving the last copy to give away to folks who comment here at my blog. Keep your eyes peeled for your cue, and you just might win a free copy of this really excellent RPG

Infinite thanks to super-cool Aubrey at SouthPeak Games for providing the loot, and also to everyone who's been supporting GameCritics.com, this blog, and me!

Clueless Mama Gets a Little Help...

Clueless Mama Laurie (she calls herself that, I wasn't being rude, honest!) writes on her blog, titled Guessing All The Way, about her experiences as mom of two. I love that Laurie admits out front that she doesn't know it all, is learning as she goes, and is taking her readers along for the ride. It's refreshing in a world of parenting experts (or so-called experts) in the blogosphere to read about a fellow mom who is figuring it out as she goes.

Laurie received our School Pack of labels to review, in preparation for her son starting preschool (though she notes it does not include kleenex which is necessary, good point!) Check out Clueless Mama's full review
here and enter to win a School Pack of labels for yourself!

We're back in business. I know drawing would become more difficult if I had lions for arms but honestly who wouldn't love to be voltron?

Laboring bee

The laboring bees are disciplined, methodical and ordeiras. They appear of an egg deposited for the bee queen in one of the hexagonais pipes that form a beehive, and from it is initiated therehistory of life of a teeny one, however extraordinary laborer.

· three days later a teeny larva is born

· in the three following days the larva receives as food the real jelly grows and is developed

· in the others five days following it also receives honey and pollen as food and continues its development

· in the eighth day the larva already all occupies the internal space of the pipe (its growth if of the one with some exchanges of the skin changes) and starts to weave a cocoon in the interior of which the larva changeds itself into pupa (at this moment the pipe is closed with a wax cover) that after that it is decided in an adult insect.

· into 20º or 21º day of the phase of pupa, this is changedded into a new laboring bee and its first task is to clean the pipe where it was born and if it developed. The first function of a laboring bee is to keep the cleanness and to give the correct final destination of the joined residues (remaining portions of changes of skin, honey, grains of pollen and wax) in the beehive. This hard phase one three days

· in the fifth day of adult life, the bee starts to secretar real jelly for its mouth that is placed in the pipes that contain larvae (if a larva receives this real jelly per six days, it changeds itself into queen - this task is defined by the necessity of the community to have a new queen).

· the adult laborers with nine days of life stop to produce the jelly real and assume a new function - of constructor of the beehive. The honey that ingested until then is transformed into wax that is used to form the mass ofs cells (joint of hexagonais pipes). A secretion appears amongst the plates of its abdome. It is removed by the previous legs and led for the mouth where she transforms it to the jaws into wax that is used in the construction of the mass of cells.

· with sixteen days of life the bees assume new function - to receive in its mouth the nectar brought for other laborers and to deposit them in the empty pipes. Into the interior of these pipes, days later, the material is changedded into honey (honeycombs). The pollen brought by other bees is stored separately in other compact pipes for the activity of the laborers.

· twenty days of life - the laboring bee passes the function of guard of the beehive. It is the ranks in the accesses of the beehive, intent the approach of other insects (ants, cupins) and until animals as bears. The communication of the danger is made with the dispersion of a set free odor for a located gland next to the sting. The perception of this signal promotes the exit of populations of laborers who go to attack the intruders decidedly.

· in the twenty third day of life the bee assumes the activity most laborious - to leave for the fields to collect nectar and pollen. More, the elements that identify to sources of nectar and pollen communicate the other bees, by means of movements (species of dance) the localization of the related sources. The imprisoned odor to the informing bee communicates details on the type of located plant. The laborer plays about 30 days the activity of collection of materials to supply the beehive.

· After about 50-55 days of life as laboring bee, feeling to appear the weakness and the oldness, the small worker moves away itself spontaneously from its community to die without promoting the discontinuity of the work of its dedicated colleagues.

10 ways to be more intelligent

10. It eats fish
Oily fish are rich in DHA, acid greasy responsibleOmega for 40% of the formation of the cellular membranes and can improve the neurotransmissão. The DHA is necessary for the development of the brain of the embryo and some studies had bound diets with sufficient fish to the reduction of the mental decline with the advanced age. But before you bite isca it knows that these studies if had based on what the people remembered to surplus its diets, a task that full the fish. Tests with Omega in rats had not shown improvement in the cognitivas abilities.

9. It drinks tea
The caffeine of the green and black tea makes the body to catch locks in it and sharpens the mind. It is not good for drinking coffee and energy. For an excellent cerebral profit it makes regular pauses to drink tea. Small doses during the day are better of what taking an only great dose.

8. Without panic
While a light nervousness can improve the cognitivo performance, periods of estresse intense transform in them into neandertais. It tries to control its breath.

7. More to devagar
The phenomenon announced for call of “dynamic reading” does not exist there. The least if its concept of “reading” mean to understand the text. Studies show that the fast readers go very worse when questioned on the text. The motor reply of the retina, and the time that the image leads to go of stains for the thalamus and after that to the visual cortex for processing, limits the eyes for about 500 words per minute, in maximum efficiency. The common university student reaches, about the half of this.

6. He remains myself sharp
Italian researchers had discovered that people who have 65 9 years more than that they walk about km per week in moderate step have 27% little possibility to develop dementia of what adult sedentary. The researchers think that exercises can improve the sanguineous flow in the brain.

5. He practises
He practises the types of questions that appear in the intelligence tests. To if preparing for problems verbal, numerical and space, typical of the psicrométricos examinations, you he can improve its props up.

4. Zzzzzz
To take off one soneca fast in the office can leave its irritated head? It informs it that you, in the truth, in accordance with deserve a promotion the last results of the studies on sleep. A brief nap can improve its memory, exactly that it lasts only six minutes.

3. Videogame plays
Everybody that begged now for a videogame goes to know optimum argument to obtain one: “You do not want that I have a visual coordination and motor inferior, he wants” Now you can speak that to some they become it games more intelligent as well as the Brain Age, of Nintendo. After careful efforts the players “they feel its brains to rejuvenescerem”.

2. Exercises
Studies show that students who practise regular aeróbicos exercises help to construct gray and white substance in the brains of older adults. In children the high point was to take the best performances in cognitivos examinations.

1. It discovers
To learn new things can strengthen the brain, especially if you believe that she can learn new things. It is a vicious circle: When you think that she is becoming more intelligent, you you study more, creating more connections between the neurons.

Antimatter propulsion

For example, positively it loaded antiparticle of the proton is negative loaded antiproton, and negative it loadedantiparticle of the electron is positively loaded proton.

The Antimatter is substance (the name is something disoriented as antimatter is substance still, only a different type) this is composed of antiparticles. The Antimatter has the interesting property that when shocks with the regular substance, them is come to ruin to produce electromagnetic radiation, mainly in the form of x-rays and rays of gamma.

The Substance-Antimatter reactions completely convert substance into energy, and are, therefore, half the well efficient one to produce energy. This tremendous amount of energy could be converted the electricity that can set in motion another system of propulsion, or could be converted to heat.

The thermal energy can heat a gas the very high temperatures, that could be used as a booster.

The same energy could be converted to light that, when focused in a direction, really can impel a ship ahead.

Unhappyly, the antimatter use has two important disadvantages.

First, because it destroys all substance in enters contact with, it has not half known to contain it.

As, and what it is more important, Antimatter is extremely rare.

By the way, the only one places can be found is in laboratories.

It was only produced in extremely small amounts e requires more energy that produces.

The cost to create antimatter is astronomical -- one calculated 62,5 trillions dollar for gram! While it improves the technology, even so, the price is waited to knock down to some dollars of billion for gram.

FAMILY

If you ask me if I love 'family' YES.
If you ask me if I love MY family / My family members
I have to think twice

How can my parents be so unfair sometimes?!
How can my siblings be so selfish and brainless ALL the time?!

If they weren't my parents I had already left this so called family many years ago!
Maybe after an hour I'll regret what I'm saying now but I just need to get this out of my chest NOW!!!!!!

WHY AM I BORN TO BE THE CHILD WHO GET THE LEAST LOVE FROM PARENTS ?! FUCK!

City Mouse, Country Mouse.....Camp Mouse!

Country Mouse City Mouse


Canadian mommy blogger Pamela Young writes a witty blog called City Mouse, Country Mouse about her three children and life in Canada. She recently reviewed our Camp Pack Labels, and writes about how she hopes her son will now have clothing on his back (and behind) at the end of his first week of camp this year:


Last year when we went for pick-up he was shirtless. When I asked him why he didn't have a shirt on he shrugged and said that he didn't know and couldn't find any. You see, over the course of three days he *misplaced* most of his clothing.

Check out Pamela's post here, and while there enter to win Camp Pack Labels so you, too, can relax knowing your little camper's bum is covered!
