Personal Update Late July 2016: I am leaving for Turkey!

I will be leaving for Turkey later today. I will not be able to post that much for three weeks. I will be back on August 20th. I will try to post at least once a week when I am there. I will post pictures of where I travel. 
I will go to Bodrum on the first week. They have a great beach. I will be staying at a big resort. The second week, I will be in Ankara, the capital city. My mom's side of the family lives there. On the final week, I will be in Gurun. I will see my dad's side of the family there. Please be aware that on the final week I will most likely not be able to post at all. 
Once I am back, I will continue to post daily until school starts. I know I have promised many posts, but have not published them yet. I promise that I will finally get to post all my overdue posts once I am back.
It is a 10 hour airplane ride to an airport in Istanbul. Once I am there, I will not stay long. I will go on another plane to Bodrum, then go on a bus ride to the resort. See you guys in …

Gravity Falls Journal 3 and Curse of The Time Pirates Treasure Books Now Available! + MY MOST POPULAR YOUTUBE VIDEO WITH OVER 1 THOUSAND VIEWS

Hello guys, this is Arca! Today, two new Gravity Falls books have been released!!! I technically got the 5 days early by reserving them at Barnes and Noble. This will not be a review of them (I will do that next month), but it will be a description of what they look like. No inside pages will be shown since I don't want to spoil it for you guys yet.

I felt more excited to get my hands on Journal 3. Above, you can see what it looks like without the jacket cover. It looks basically the same as from the show. It has an attached string that can be used as a bookmark. The parts where the red parts look like it is peeled off has a different texture than the rest of the cover. The 6-fingered hand, the golden rings, and side holders all shine when you put them to light. The book was a lot bigger than I expected, with its dimensions being 7.9 x 9.9 inches. So sadly I will not be able to bring this to Turkey :'(

The back also looks the same as from the show, except more realistic.

Angry Birds Star Wars: The Force Awakens Fanart- Tasu Leech and Kanjiklub Pigs & Sarco Plank Pigs

Hello, this is Arca! I have not been posting for more than 3 days because I have a very tight schedule. Not only do I have recreational camp every day, but I have spent a lot of time shopping with my parents to prepare for my trip to Turkey this Friday. I have 5 overdue posts! Whatever posts I do not make before Turkey will be posted after the trip. Now that my announcement is over, let me get into the post itself! 
Becuase of the tight schedule I mentioned earlier, I cannot do the Google+ polls. So I will be choosing them for a while. This time, I drew Angry Birds Star Wars versions of some very little-known characters seen in Episode 7. They are Sarco Plank and Tasu Leech. Chances are, you have no idea who I am talking about. I will show you some pictures fo them.

Sarco Plank (shown above) is a bounty hunter last seen on Jakku. Being the Mellito species, he is an insectoid with no eyes. He is an arms dealer who works at Niima Outpost in Jakku. I knew about this character several mo…

Eid Extra Money Haul- Gravity Falls: Legend of the Gnome Gemulets Nintendo 3DS game, Super Smash Bros, and More!

Hello, this is Arca. I will only have time for one post today. But I will make three or two tomorrow. On Thursday I got some more games for my Nintendo 2DS using my leftover Eid money. They are all technically 3DS games, but they also work on a 2DS. I got Gravity Falls: Legend of the Gnome Gemulets, Super Smash Bros, and the Lego Movie Videogame.

Gravity Falls: Legend of the Gnome gemulets is a game based on the show. It takes place before Not What He Seems. It features Dipper and Mabel trying to solve the mystery of an ancient treasure and its powers while fighting gnomes. It is not canon to the story of the show, and Bill Cipher does not appear in it (or Grunkle Ford). However, it is still a fun game and I recommend it to any gamer who is a fan of the show. Super Smash Bros is a game where all worlds from Nintendo games combine! Play through epic battles to be the last one standing with the most points. Play alone against artificial intelligence, or play multiplayer with friends!.Y…

Minecraft PE Angry Birds Builds: King Pig and Mustache Pig

Hello guys! This is Arca. I will two posts tomorrow to make up for not posting yesterday, which was Tuesday. On Monday, I promised you guys that I would show you my Minecraft PE builds of the King Pig and Mustache Pig from Angry Birds. So, without further ado, here they are!

As you can see above, the King Pig has green skin, just like all of the other pigs in the original Angry Birds game. He has a big upper snout that is slightly rounded at the top corners. The nostrils are thin and long and have a dark-green color. His eyes are in a very derpy position, and his eyebrows are also dark-green. He has two ears on the left side of his head that are very close together, with the inner part being dark-green. His crown is made from gold blocks, a diamond block, and lapis lazuli blocks.

My moustache pig has many things that set him apart from a normal pig, and you can see this above. He is slightly rounder at the top, with grey eyebrows and bluish-purple bottom eyelids. His nostrils are thi…

Here is a post you have been waiting for, for a long time: My review on Minecraft Pocket Edition 0.15.0! It is now available for iOS, Android, and Windows 10. This update has been out for over a month, but I didn't get a chance to make a post about it. I took some screenshots of all the new features. I will now show it to you guys!

They finally added a mob that everyone has been demanding for then past 2 years. Now you can find a horse to feed, breed, tame, and ride into battle with! Horses can have horse armor added into an inventory made just for them. Here is how to ride a horse:  1. Feed it an apple. 2. Hold another item in your hand. 3. When the "Ride" button appears, tap it.

4. Once on the horse, quickly tap the "Inventory" button that pops up (not your inventory, the horse's inventory) and put in a saddle. Also horse armor if you want.

Tap the "X…

Minecraft PE Angry Birds Builds: Stella the Pink Bird and Bubbles the Orange Bird

Hello, everyone! This is Arca. I will make two posts today to make up for not posting Saturday. According to the last Google+ poll, the two Angry Birds builds you wanted me to make in Minecraft PE were the orange bird and pink bird. So, without further ado, here they are!

You can see Stella above, She is a pink bird. Her beak is small and yellow, She has arching black eyebrows with blue pupils. She has three curved head feathers that are pink with a dark pink tip on each. She has three black tail feathers. I couldn't find any light-pink blocks for the stomach, so I used grey.

Bubbles is shown above. He is an orange bird. He has a medium-sized yellow beak with black surrounding his eyes. His stomach is black. He has long red eyebrows shaped in an arch shape. He has two black head feathers.
\ As shown above, Bubbles has two black tail feathers that are slightly connected.

Angry Birds Star Wars: The Force Awakens Fanart: First Order Snowtrooper and Special Forces TIE Pilot Pigs

Hello, everyone! This is Arca. I am sorry for not posting on Saturday. I will make two posts tomorrow to make up for this. According to the last Google+ poll, (which not as many people voted on as other times), the two Angry Birds Star Wars: The Force Awakens are a First Order Snowtrooper Pig and Special Forces TIE Pilot Pig. So, without further ado, here they are!

You can see my Special Forces TIE Pilot Pig above. The main thing that separates First Order Special Forces TIE Pilots with normal First Order TIE Pilots is that the special forces have red stripes on my helmet. I made a mistake and at first forgot to add them in, so I cut off the sticky side of a sticky note, colored it in red, and cut it into 4 equal parts to put on parts of the helmet. It is mostly black and gray. Its main features are outlined by grey. Its snout is connected by two grey stripes, and it has a metal circle on the bottom right side with a breathing tube connecting two parts of the left side. It has a grey…

TTHT Blog Upgrade 5.2: RECENT POSTS GLITCH FIXED!!!

Hi, this is Arca. This is my second blog post for today, to make up for not posting at all on Tuesday. When blog upgrade 5.0 came out, there was an annoying glitch that made the screen load slow and a bunch of text at the bottom of the screen that took up half the screen. To learn more about that, see this post: http://arcabaran.blogspot.com/2016/07/this-and-that-here-and-there-blog.html

Anyways, I went onto Google's Blogger Help Forum. Somebody else was having the same problem. Somebody who works at Google replied and gave CSS code to copy into the template of a blog to hide a certain widget. I gave him the link to my blog, and since he works at Google, was able to go into my blog to fix it. A big thanks to the expert who did that!

Now you will no longer see that at the bottom of my blog, and my page loads a lot faster. This is great news, and therefore a bug fix feature of TTHT blog upgrade 5.2!


Stay tuned for tomorrow's post, and a daily post until August, Thanks for readin…

Minecraft PE Angry Birds Builds: Hal the Green Bird and Helmet Pig

Hello, guys! This is Arca. I will be making two posts today to make up for not posting Tuesday.  According to the last Google+ poll, the two options in the lead for me to build in Minecraft Pocket Edition were Hal the Green Bird and the Helmet Pig from Angry Birds. So, without further ado, let me show you the builds! 

As you can see above, Hal is mostly green. He has a long yellow and orange beak with an overbite on top. His stomach is white with a dark green outline. His eyebrows are very arched and are the color black, and he has three flat black head feathers on top. He has four black pointy tail feathers in the back (although it is barely visible from the angle of the screenshot I took of the build). 

The Helmet Pig I made is wearing a big grey helmet with loose brown straps. He has very derpy eyeballs, with nervously arched eyebrows. Below his snout is his mouth, with some white teeth visible. Like all pigs in the original Angry Birds games, his skin is green.
