Livin’ the Membership Life! (For the First Time)

Happy Weekend friends! It’s Sporty B. here with personally, a very special post. About 3 weeks ago, the amazing Poptropica Help Blog gave me about the best news I’ve heard all day… I won their annual spoopy costume contest!

membership  Messy seagull.png

Messy Seagull: “AHEM!”

Sporty Boa: “Holy PUPPET MAN! You almost scared the swag out of me!” *Pauses and then points at him* “… Have you been standing in that dark corner the whole time?”

MS: *Nods and crosses arms*

SB: “Terrifying, but somewhat makes sense…”

MS: “… I like this corner… It’s so… Dark. *Smirks showing fangs*

SB: “Don’t push it Messy,” *Adjusts Boa Staff on nearby rack*

Anyways, shoutout to Messy Seagull for stylin’ my spoopy (And extremely cheap) costume! (No seriously, Three words of advice if you create a new account for a costume contest:

  1. Spin the Wheel in the *ugh* Theater
  2. By all free costumes in the store
  3. Go to Poptropicon Island. )

 

The reward for ranking in the top six of the contest was what really made me happy: A ONE MONTH MEMBERSHIP!!! … Oh and being IMORTALIZED in the “Costumes” database on the PHB!

 

WHEN SPORTY BOA GETS HIS FIRST MEMBERSHIP HE…

Is happy.

I mean, do you know how long I’ve dreamt to have a real membership badge? *Shoves fake membership badge in drawer* Today officially marks a whole week I’ve had it and I still have pretty much scratched the surface of what it can do. but what I have done with it… Is buy clothes. Lots of clothes.

I kinda went on a shopping spree in Pop Worlds, purchasing as much cool membership clothes with the low amount of credits I already had then, I was able to customize very sporty fits ( Ah, puns…):

^ Really love my casual look! X)

One of my personal favs, you can tell by this picture I drew based on it:

Sporty swag membership

 

 

When the universe doesn’t approve of your fashion choice:

I have more I want to show you but the images just disappeared so… Aliens!

On Poptropica Original however, I went on a shopping frenzy! (since everything is free) I also bought something really special that I might talk about in a later post so just stay tuned! What I did do was change-up my casual outfit into something more me:

bendy membership.png

Thanks to my friend, Bendy Flyer for the jacket Idea! Also with the closet now unlocked I can save my favorite, memorable costumes!

 

As I conclude, I’d just like to send a message to all those non- members out there: Don’t lose hope! I didn’t make this post just to show off or brag, it was basically to prove that good things come to those who wait. I never planned on buying membership anytime soon, and I definitely didn’t expect to win the Halloween contest, but it happened, and I’m truly grateful from the bottom of my heart to Poptropica and the PHB for making my childhood dream come true. I hope you all have an epic weekend, this boa’s gotta bounce!

MLM Special #2: Interviewing my Sister, Happy Sky!

Yoooo guys, it’s the sportiest of boas here and for some reason I’m feeling really happy! Crazy right? It’s Monday, I’m supposed to feel sad, grumpy or too lazy to post, but nope! SB is a happy person right now! *Makes weird excited sounds* It’s finally happening! As you read in the title, today I’m interviewing the awesome person who got me into the game Poptropica… *Drumrolls on desk* My older sister HAPPY SKY!!! So for this interview, my dialog will be in beautiful Green, and Happy Sky’s will be Magenta! With that all cleared up, sit tight and enjoy da post! XD

 

YESTERDAY’S AWKWARD MEET UP…

Sporty Boa: *Grabs pencil, note pad & Boa staff* “Wait what? Not going to whack my sister on the head in this interview! But, I’ll keep it just in case of an emergency…”

Rusty the cat: “Mew,” (“Where ya going hooman?“)

SB: Sorry Rusty, you’re gonna have to stay and protect the house while I’m gone, not going on any perilous adventures today,”

Rusty: “Mew, Meow?” (“I said, Where ya going?“)

SB: *Grabs fake membership badge* Just heading to Red Dragon Island to interview my sister for my dying Memory lane Mondays series, Be good! Don’t destroy the automatic food dispenser again!”

R: “Meow??” (“You have a sister??“)

Later that day…

SB: “Okay sooo, this should be the place. I mean, this IS the last island she completed so it has to be… But I could be wrong and accedentally enter someone else’s- “

HS: “Come in, bro.”

SB: *Awkwardly opens door and walks in* “Hi,”

HS: *Is working on computer and doesn’t respond* 

SB: “Whatcha doin’?”

HS: “Studying.”

SB: (Riiight, studying, preparing for college, have no time for childish stuff…) *Takes deep breath* Want to be on my blog!? 

HS: *Looks up from computer*

SB: “It’s like an interveiw thing… About Poptropica”

HS: “Cool, sure.”

SB: “Cool!” (She already said that! I hope the actual interview isn’t this awkward…)

 

THE INTERVIEW

Favorite Stuff:

SB: “Alright, lets get started!”

*Relaxes on a bean bag and pulls out notepad and pencil* “What’s your favorite island?”

HS: “Mystery Train… Actually it might be a tie because I loved Reality TV!”

SB: *Grins* “Reality TV was pretty fun! Alright… Who’s your Favorite Poptropica Villain?”

HS: “Was her name Black Widow?” 

SB: “Yeah, on Counterfiet Island. That was a quick answer, why is she your favorite?”

HS: “It shocked me once I found out she was the villain, it was disturbing but cool.”

SB: “Disturbing but cool?” *Writes in notebook*

HS: “Yeah she’s so smart, clever and such a trickster!”

SB: “Agreed. (*Cough* Read *Cough* My Top 3 Poptropica Traitors post!) 

Now lets move on to the good stuff…”

Scary Stuff:

SB: “What’s the scariest moment you’ve had playing Pop?” *Gives smirk* Let me guess, Fiona’s voice in Ghost Story Island?” (She was actually the only one of us who experienced that first hand! We were both watching her play with headphones on and then she just randomly screamed, “She Spoke!!!” XD Memories…)

HS: “YES… And that bat-thing in the window,”

SB: “The devil- sorry, meant to say, the Jersey Devil?”

HS: *Nods then starts laughing* I remember when it happened you fell out of you chair! Oh my gosh you were so scared!”

SB: *Sarcastically laughs* “I remember.” (I was saving that moment for a future blog post!)

HS: “What also worried me is when there’s a time spam on a mini-game or boss and if you fail you have to start all over, THAT raised my blood pressure at the time!”

SB: *Scribbles in book* “Interesting!

Creepiest Island Sis?”

HS: “I don’t really know, I honestly forgot most of them… Remember that Wild West one? I hated that one, it was SO challenging!”

SB: “Yeah I remember, riding the horse was fun tho!”

HS: “I still beat it… Don’t I have the most medals out of you and Fierce? I think I do..” 

SB: “I think he beggs to differ!”

Final Remarks?

SB: “Any last things you want to say on blog?” *Turns page in notepad*

HS: *Sighs* “Poptropica has taught me so much about the world. The different people, the adventures, to me Poptropica was revolutionary.”

SB: “Big word.”

HS: *Laughs* “All I remember was me just being so happy playing… I really miss it actually,”

SB: *Raises eyebrows* “It’s still around you know, if you have time you can hop on and play!”

HS: “I might just go on it someday, I still remember my password!”

SB: “Great! And thanks so much for your time sis!” 

HS: “Your welcome!” 🙂

 

 

Well that was the end of the interview! If some of you were wondering if I made this all up, this was all an actuall conversasion I had with my sister, It was a bit awkward at first but we both had tons of fun talking about a game we grew up enjoying and still love today! Afterwards I explained to her about the PHB’s My Place in Poptropica series, she has an amazing story and is a great writter, she actually considered it!

Top 5 Coolest Villain Lairs!

Good day mates! I’m Sporty Boa, just a Pop- loving kid and a Top 10 enthusiast! Today isn’t a top 10 though, it’s a top 5 post about my all- time favorite Poptropica villain lairs!  Mwahaahaa! (#I’mNotEvil #OrAmI? #TotallyNot) You guys voted and I’m here to deliver, plus I got some fun stuff planned on the SBB for this spoopy month so stay tuned! One more thing, the following list is all just my opinion, so don’t get triggered in the comments K? Nice, let’s go!

 

 

HONORABLE MENTION: BLACK WIDOW’S WAREHOUSE (Counterfeit Island)

SB BW lair

Black Widow is one of Poptropica’s most crafty and smart villains, (Well except for the part where she throws Thousands of dollars worth of priceless art to the floor…) So smart that you don’t even know where her lair is located! You were literally brought there unconscious! But even though Black Widow’s warehouse is spacious and pretty industrial-looking, the other evil lairs on this list are even more striking.

 

 

NUMBER 5: THE SEA CHICKEN (skullduggery Island)

crawfishship

Woah, speaking of striking, get a load of that! Captain Crawfish’s portable, Tank-like ship is equipped with everything an evil pirate needs: Multiple cannons, dingy sails, an awesome design, and… Stain glass windows? Man, I wish I had a ship like that… Wait. *Glances at the Phoenix Warbird docked besides him* I do!

 

 

NUMBER 4: DR. HARE’S SECRET LAB/LAIR (24 Carrot Island)

Sheesh, I’m finding nothing in these smelly vents except some rats and HOLY-!

dr hare's lair

Behold the doc’s “Top secret” lair! (Fitting he lives under ground since he’s part rabbit and all…) Barrels of toxic waste, cool! Carrot juice rocket fuel, neato! Giant, rabbit-like space ship? Awesome! Kidnapped, mind controlled, and enslaved kids? Not awesome.

 

 

NUMBER 3: B.A.D. CONTROL CENTER (Spy Island)

If I were an evil super villain, (Which I’m not) my evil lair would be alot like Director D’s. This highly booby-trapped, fortified base is an extreme pain zone for inexperienced heroes. (Not including myself, who dodged the lasers unscathed! *Covers laser scar with hand and laughs nervously*) Even once you get in the control center, (Which is really cool looking!) traps await you around every step and turn. Advanced, Secure, and Techy, definitely the lair for me… If I were an evil super villain… Which I’m not.

 

 

NUMBER 2: BINARY BARD’S PLANETARY FORTRESS (Astro Knights Island)

A breathtaking medieval fortress. On a planet in SPACE. How did Mordred make this happen?!? The only downside is that we don’t get to see much of the castle’s interior… A flipping CASTLE! What could be a cooler evil lair than a CASTLE?!

 

 

NUMBER 1: COUNT BRAM’S CASTLE (Vampire’s Curse Island)

Castle Lair Pop

…Another FLIPPING CASTLE! (Sry, I’ll chill with the caps lock… But aren’t castles awesome?!) Sorry Binary Bard, this one takes the cake, It is the literal definition of an evil lair! whether you liked the island or not, you have to admit that this daunting palace is a masterpiece. If you don’t, the Count’s hypnotizing stare will force you to admit it… JK!

 

Well peeps, that it for my list of Top 5 Favorite Villain Lairs! Hoped you enjoyed and remember to vote for next Thursday’s Top Ten theme tomorrow! (lit alliteration, SB!) Well see you then, this Boa’s gotta bounce! 🙂

Top 10 Poptropicans (NPCs) I’d be Friends With!

Heyo Amigos! It’s the Boa of Sportiness here FINALLY bringing you a Top 10 Post!! What took so long? *Checks list of excuses* Hang on a sec… *Mumbles* Hurricane…? Nah, already did that one… Aliens?? The heck? *Sighs and puts away paper* I guess I was just lazy then. Anyways, TTT (Top Ten Thursdays) has returned and this Thursday’s theme is, Poptropican NPCs I’d be friends with! When it comes friends, I’m pretty cautious, I’ve had my fair share of bad and deceiving comrades, (Why Director D? Wai?!) So This list took me a while to create. Remember this is all just ya boi’s opinion, so don’t judge me! Also, there may be Spoilers. Enjoy my friends!

 

 

NUMBER 10: SLIM SLAM (Reality TV Island)

 

Reality TV is one of my all-time favorite islands in Poptropica, and it was a blast to play or even watch someone else play!

( SB: Not to brag, but my brother’s like a 14- time champion,

Random Guy: What about you, Sporty?

SB: I… Don’t… Remember?

RG: Sure you don’t. )

One of many things I love about the island are the contestants, or in your case, competitors. Why would I want to be friends with a rival? Because Slim Slam is cool, that’s why. I’d love to play hoops with him one day!

 

NUMBER 9: CHARLIE/ WHISKERS ( 24 Carrot Island )

Charlie

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Let me clear up any confusion you may have; My cat Rusty needs a friend, and it looks like does Charlie too. Working at and old tools and carrot surplus shop sounds kinda boring… You know what’s not boring? Cats. Whiskers and I may’ve not started on the right foot, ( Judging by this rather embarrassing and perfectly-timed photo: )

Whiskers2

but now since I’ve picked up a part time job at Charlie’s I think were slowly becoming friends… Yep, I’m running low on creds… Tips?

Random Guy: “You could complete more islands, maybe quit being lazy…”

Sporty Boa: *Shakes tip jar*

RG: “Oh.”

 

NUMBER 8: EDGAR (Monster Carnival Island) 

I know this may sound like a shocker, but at first I wasn’t going to include lil’ Edgar on this list. Probably because I mostly remember his mind- controlled state, strapping ya boi up to a chair and preparing to transform me into a Monster! On the other hand, he’s a good kid inside and out, and just seeing him during the creepy nightmare which was Monster Carnival put me at ease.

 

NUMBER 7: STRANGE MAN (Counterfeit Island)

What?! How-? Huh?? That’s probably what’s going through your mind seeing the scarred face of the Strange man on this list. I’m have to agree and disagree with you. Agree that he probably should be on a list of NPCs I WOULDN’T be friends with judging from his unsettling and sinister actions in Counterfeit Island, But disagree because he changed. In the end, it was he who knocked out his former boss the Black Widow and proved he could be useful. To me, your Poptropican, and maybe even Poptropica itself.

It’d be nice to catch a glimpse of the Strange Man in the future, we’d make a great crime fighting duo!… But then again he’s probably in the shadows somewhere.

 

NUMBER 6: SHARK BOY (Shark Tooth Island)

My Boy! I actually met him once, (So we’re basically already friends!) he’s a really chill guy who’s just working to make a living at the Shark Museum. I’m a huge fan and really hope we become awesome shark- bros someday!

 

NUMBER 5: THE CREW (Skullduggery Island)

I mean why not? The crew you assemble to duel Captain Crawfish on Skullduggery Island are awesome! All equipped with special gifts and abilities, you guys make an epic team. Do you think after defeating Crawfish they’d just say ‘bye’ and sail back to what they were doing? Nah, I’d like to think we’d set sail through the Seven Seas, defeating sea monsters and preventing more evil enemy pirates from laying waste to the island.

 

NUMBER 4: ISHMAEL (S.O.S Island)

Ishmael

*Diggs in inventory satchel* “Yep, still have it,” *Pulls out whale calling device and hugs it* “I’ll never forget the time you saved my life… And I’ll also never forget the guy who gave it to me, Ishmael.”

This is my first time saying this but, if Ish was a person IRL, I think we might actually become buds! I mean, he’s a little awkward, I’m a little awkward, he loves whales, I love whales, the list goes on and on! Oh wait… That’s the end of the list. Maybe that’s why Ishmael isn’t numero Uno on this countdown post…

 

NUMBER 2: MAX McGULLICUTTY (Survival Island) 

Max. McGullicutty. Former pilot turned underground survivor. He saved your poptropican’s life from the clutches of that… Myron Van Buren, basically helps you stop M.V.B. once and for all, and flies you off into the sunset with that no-good hunter’s OWN HELICOPTER! Need I say more?

 

 

 

NUMBER 2: HAROLD MEWS (Cryptids Island)

Ah, Mr. Harold S. Mews, ( The ‘S’ stands for Something… Idk) I love the guy. He’s kind-hearted, compassionate, (Everything a rich person SHOULD be) and believes in me more than almost any NPC in the game! He’s ranked so high on my list because were actually still friends to this day, I often drop by his mansion on Cryptids Island and check on Bigfoot, do some DNA studies, or just have a cup of tea! And Sometimes, Mews lets me take the chopper for a quick flight around the island! Coolest. Friend. Ever.

 

NUMBER 1: …

Before I reveal who no. 1 is, I want you to think of the perfect someone you’d be friends with. Someone with your interests…  With a similar personality… Got it? No, need more dots? Fine………

 

NUMBER 1: MY FUTURE SELF (Time Tangled Island)

Duh, Yourself! XD  I mean it may be an older version of yourself, but still! The stories and pure fun we could have are unlimited! *Sigh* U the best, Me.

 

That’s the end of this really, really late Top 10 post, you’ll be able to vote for the next theme tomorrow so stay tuned! Have an awesome rest of the week and I’ll see you next time, Boa out!

 

 

 

 

I Survived Hurricane Irma 2017

Remember recently I said that I would make a post that would explain my blogging inactivity? Well thats when Fierce Flyer made this spectactular, in-depth post on his blog explaining a lot of we went through during the past couple of weeks. That means I don’t have to do anything and just reblog his post! Check it out & Thx bro!

Fierce Flyer Adventures

Greetings everyone and welcome to a new blog post about Irma (and hopefully the last)! I just want to give everyone the biggest thank you in the world for your prayers and condolences to the poptropicans in Florida (FW, SB, and FF just to name a few) and basically every other Floridian. As you know Irma was the Largest Hurricane to ever hit on the Atlantic in history. This entire experience was crazy from start to finish so put your shutters up and sit tight. (Hurricane Reference ;))

Day 1: Irma

I looked at my Computer as I gulped nervously. a couple of Days ago I heard about Hurricane Harvey as it shredded through Houston without remorse. Now, looking on twitter noticing #HurricaneIrma2017 top trending gave me shivers knowing that another Typhoon was ready to strike, but after realizing it was coming for us I immediately got a little nervous. “The biggest Hurricane…

Memory Lane Monday Special #1: Ten Years Ago…

Yo Poptropicans, Sporty Boa is alive and ready to post… Finally. So yeah, I’ll maybe talk about my major inactivity in a later post but some of you may already know my excuse, *Cough* Hurri- *Cough* c-cane. But still, I’m pretty bummed out that I couldn’t live up to the promises I made in my previous post, so… I’m sorry. :/

 

BUUUUUT…

We’ve gotta look on da bright side. I’m back, I have wifi, and- whaaat?? Poptropica Turned 10??!!

bday pop.png

   Okay maybe I wasn’t THAT creepily excited, but still I was stoked to hear the news!

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I think last Friday marked Poptropica’s 10- year birthday… Wow, Ten years. A Decade. That’s a long time if you really think about it, 10 years ago I was… In Kindergarten. (Why do I remember Kindergarten so clearly, but can’t even remember how I was like last year?) Welp time to make a MLM post about it! … Wait, I already am…

 

TEN YEARS AGO… 

Ten Years ago, I was five. How do you picture a five- year old SB?

5yroldSB

Did the words Quiet, Shy and Awkward come to mind? (If they did then… That’s impressive) Cause that’s who I was ten years ago. I remember my school’s name (Which was very long), my only friend at the time, who we’ll call Steven, and my teacher who when angry, was a SCARY preson. Let’s call him Mr. Hulk. (Which is partially true because when he got mad his face would turn very, very red.)

I have this funny memory from this one time when me and Steven went on a tattletail spree, going around the classroom, spotting left-out supplies or someone doing the wrong thing and rushing to the teacher to report or expose our findings. I also recall Mr. Hulk hurling a chair across the room, not at us, but so a troublesome kid could sit down and get yelled at… Oh, there was also this time when-

Random Guy: “Sorry to interrupt your leisurely stroll through memory lane, but what does any of this have to do with Poptropica?”

Sporty Boa: “You see RG, Reflecting on the past can be pretty cool. That’s why I made this series, so you guys can get a glimpse of me before AND during my Poptropica obsession. Great Experiences make Great Stories, remember my slogan?”

RG: Hmm, I guess…

On that note, I’ll end this post wishing Poptropica an Amazing (and belated) 10th B-day and wishing you guys an epic new week! Peace, this Boa’s gotta bounce!

 

P.S. After I left the School, I ended up meeting Mr. Hulk again who started teaching at my middle school, and I literally ran into Steven at the Grocery Store a couple of years ago… It was a VERY awkward conversation.

The Legends Behind my Logo…

Aye Greetings Folks, It’s me Sporty Boa commin’ at you with a lit new blog post! Speaking of lit, how about dat new header and logo? …. Er, I mean It wouldn’t necessarily call it ‘new’ buuut, it’s cool right?…. No? Maybe? Let’s just get into to the post…

 

CHAPTER 1: WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW IS..

Throughout my time as a member of the Poptropica community, I’ve witnessed a bunch of logo changes, (Maybe I’ll make a Top 10 countdown post someday… ;)) One late, Summer-y night, Ya boi decided to change things up here on the SBB.

20170824_145918.jpg

In like, 20 minutes I made the header you now see above this post ^^ with the help of Ms. Paint (Shout-out to G for the name idea!). But what you don’t know is that it took me much longer to unveil the new logo… Like Months. 0_0

 

CHAPTER 2: IDEAS THAT HURT

The truth is, I’ve wanted to change my blog’s logo for a long time. When I first made the decision to create Sporty Boa Blog, my brother Fierce whipped up a makeshift logo for me:

cropped-sporty-boa-blogs-logo.png

that was… Good, but… Not Great? (Sorry bro!)

A few months back from now, I had envisioned the perfect logo, And no, it wasn’t my current one. I was just scribbling in my note book and the idea just hit me… Hard. It actually was quite painful. Anyways, I attempted to put my awesome idea on paper, but it just wasn’t as perfect as the image in my brain. I recently tried to replicate the new logo idea but it still wasn’t exactly how I pictured it, take a look:

20170822_111504.jpg

(The snake forms an “S” and the ball forms a “B”. Yee, It stands for me! #Bars)

(…Btw, those R my new pink earbuds on the side there… #Manly)

 

CHAPTER 3: HELP MEH!

Months Earlier:

How was this going to work? There’s NO WAY I can draw my new logo idea using Microsoft Paint? (Don’t Sue me) I can barely sketch it on paper! I needed help.

Sporty Boa: Who do I know that’s great at art, That’s close friends with me, and can get this done quickly?”

*Glances next to him and see’s FF*

Fierce Flyer: *Looks over* “Umm… Hey?”

SB: “Can do me a favor?”

*shoves notebook into Fierce Flyer’s face*

“Draw dis, please,”

I mean it was a pretty obvious, my little bro was way better than me at digital art, and he was also RIGHT THERE so… yeah mission accomplished! This should take no time at all…

 

CHAPTER 4: DA CHOICE

I don’t mean to roast my brother, but… You still haven’t made my logo yet! But it’s all good because when I was just about done waiting, I took it upon myself to make a choice… Keep waiting for him to draw my logo for me, or draw it myself… Using Ms. Paint. As you might’ve guessed, I did option #2, and struggled and tried very hard to remaster my old perfect logo idea. But when I was finished, I was finally content:

SBB LOGO

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

CHAPTER 5: ONE LEGEND ENDS, ANOTHER BEGINS

So that’s the end of this legend behind my logo (Others may call it a ‘story’). But it does not end here, maybe one day I’ll change it again, who knows? So yeah, have an epic day and-  Wait! I just forgot I mentioned Legend’s’ in the title! Before you go, I want to show you some cool things I messed around with on M.S. Paint, Different colorways and stuff for my new logo! Which one is your favorite? let me know in the comments, this Boa’s gotta bounce!

SBB LOGO 10

P.S. Do you see it? XD
