#2003648 Can you keep a leveled head?

Posted by Dazz on 23 March 2017 - 05:47 AM

I'm probably the best at keeping a level head out of all my friends whether it's from a bee buzzing around my head, to getting into near death experiences. As weird as it is I find comfort in situations where others around me are scared/panicking. I put it down to British stubbornness, seeing how silly everyone else looks panicking and not wanting to look like that. Plus someones gotta keep a level head right?


I'm usually the diffuser in chaotic situations, I hate conflict and will avoid it whenever possible. I remember being at McDonalds after a party drunk with a group of friends, and some 30 year old decided to start insulting me because of my hair, started calling me a faggot and shit like that. My friends are very protective of me and their blood started boiling, tempers rose, arguments started escalating and they wanted to beat the shit out of this guy. Despite being the victim I told them to back off, to leave him alone and calm them down because I didn't want to end a good night on a low with them being arrested. I just wanted some nuggets.


I'll usually shut down someone who wants to argue with niceness and try to keep it peaceful. Most of the time their reasons to try argue with me are silly, and they're just looking for a fight because someone else has made them angry or they've had a shit day, so I wont give them the reason they're looking for to argue. My drama days are well over with, I'm too mature to get involved in petty shit. If I had a grudge with you before it's water under the bridge  ^_^


Am I afraid of death? No. When you start riding motorbikes there's like an invisible contract you sign with yourself that whatever happens, happens. I've had so many near death experiences on the bike alone that it's normal for me to just pick myself up, pick the bike up, make sure it's still working fine, dust myself off then carry on. Most people would fucking rage at the other driver, but i'll just stay calm and brush it off. The other drivers are always a lot more terrified, I don't care what injuries I might have picked up there's an older lady coming over to me shaking, panicking over what she's done. I'm just telling her not to worry about it and calm her down because I'm scared she's about to have a heart attack :p


I remember having a conversation with one of my close friends down the pub about riding, and his views were that if he crashes and ends up dead then that's more than fine with him, because he died doing what he loves the most. "And you can bet i'll have the biggest smile on my face all the way to the end, because i'd rather die doing what I enjoy the most. I'd rather die young doing what I love, than of old age working some boring 9-5 desk job every day". That was also one of the last conversations I had with him because a couple days later on a ride out he lost control of his bike and crashed into a tree. So that conversation haunts me to this day but it's something I hold close to my heart. It's also why i've mellowed out a lot, because life's too short to hold grudges, to hold anger and hate  ^_^

well, yeah, but I watched Central Intelligence twice just because of dwanye


Is that The Rock and Kanye's secret child?

I'm sick of this "Fuck 2016". People dies, get over it.


Well that's a little harsh, people obviously have strong feelings for those that have passed away. Telling them to just get over it is pretty fucking insensitive.


Posted by Dazz on 20 December 2016 - 08:40 AM

Sometimes I see people with little kids and I think of how great it would be to have the same experience but other times I see them driving their parents absolutely bananas and think "yep.. that's not going to be me anytime soon".


So conflicted. Sure you could argue that "I'm still young" but at the same time I'm not getting any younger and hey, if it's something that I want why wait?


Get a dog.

#1997420 For The Very First Time

Posted by Dazz on 24 November 2016 - 09:46 AM

First time experiences, everyone has them, it's impossible not to and usually they can make for some pretty interesting stories. Wether it's the first time you got behind the wheel of a car, to the first time crashing it, your first time falling in love with something, or maybe the first time you escaped death. 


For me two examples would be the first time I finally got to ride a motorbike, my uncle has been a bike mechanic since he was a teenager, he was a rocker during the whole mods vs rockers thing so I've heard a lot of great stories from that alone :rolleyes:  but i've always been around bikes so from as early as when I was 5 years old I knew I wanted to ride myself some day, fuck cars give me two wheels. It was the longest 12 year wait but it was one of the best days of my life for sure :D And despite having almost been killed on them too many times I still love it, I keep getting back on.


The other example, and only because it's so cool to say, is that my first time being on a plane is also my first time jumping out of one. Had to wait with friends for 6 hours playing stupid shit like catch the rock in the car park until the clouds/weather cleared up to jump. Wasn't nervous at all, as cool as a cucumber the entire way up, playing rock paper scissors in the back of the plane for the order of who gets to jump first. Usually i'm a fucking champion at rock paper scissors but I ended up jumping last and it wasn't until my legs were dangling out of the plane that I started to shit myself, but it was fun. One of those must try experiences for sure, the view was beautiful  ^_^


So what are some of your first time experiences that really stand out for you? It doesn't have to be extreme, it can be as simple as a you'd like, but I'd still love to hear some of your stories :)

#1997005 Life questions

Posted by Dazz on 17 November 2016 - 07:21 AM

Lemme just go ahead and just slap some of these unanswered questions out real quick


Is life really about just working every day until you die?


Until retirement yes, enjoy.


Do my cats love me?


As long as you feed them.


Why can't I function like a normal person?


Because a normal person doesn't exist.


Are my questions going to be unanswered? 




In the current episode of Yuri on Ice, Russian Yuri's blades change from black to silver in a cut of the opening theme. What does this mean???????


Shit dude, must be an omen of things to come. It's up to you to be Sherlock, to find a Watson, and uncover the mystery for us all.


What is love?



baby don't hurt me


Don't hurt me


no more

#1996766 Who is your favorite person on Codex?

Posted by Dazz on 12 November 2016 - 08:29 PM

Lol if you explain why and how you have influenced yourself. Go ahead. Now I want to see this. :p


I crack myself up on a daily basis, no one else really does that to me.


But the real winning point is this, listen to me explain how I mastered the art of the puppy dog eyes. Basically you have to stare in the mirror every night before bed. BUT YOU, the person, have to stay strong, to keep staring into the mirror. It's the reflection in the mirror's job to convince you to stop, without using any words or sounds. Only then, when the puppy eyed person in the mirror has convinced you to stop, can you go to bed. But you, the person staring into the mirror, have to try to resist for as long as you can and keep staring. DO NOT BREAK EYE CONTACT. It's a two-way training, to strengthen your puppy dog eye technique to get what you want, but at the same time strengthening your resistance to the puppy dog eyes, to stay strong against people trying it against you. Two birds with one stone


You're probably thinking one of two things, either "Darren this is the stupidest thing I've ever read", or "Darren this is the most genius thing I've ever read from you" which is one of the greatest backhanded compliments I can get. In fact both outcomes i'll happily take :p


Who else is giving me such top tier solid gold advice like this but me? 




I rest my case.

Are you allowed to pick yourself? :p Self love is important too...

#1996606 Where's Waser?

Posted by Dazz on 09 November 2016 - 05:54 PM

Let's get a little positivity up in here amongst all the doom and gloom. I heard y'all want some content, well out of my madness I had a silly little idea that turned into a big one, just as a bit of fun for everyone  ^_^


I'm sure you're all familiar with Where's Wally/Waldo, well I decided to make a Codex special edition! I cropped out some faces from some of our very own beautiful members, pasted them onto a background, and voila! Where's Waser? This took me quite a longish time, it's not as easy as it might look trust me, but it's amazing what hyper focus can do for you  :p If you're not in it, it's most likely because I couldn't find a decent enough selfie, so my bad. But if there's enough interest I can probably make another one, a lot better too cause this was quite rushed, this is like a 1st draft. So if you would like to be in the next one speak up, the more faces I can get the better :)


Anyways here's the Codex special; Where's Waser?



I posted a link because you'll want to view it full size, it's huge. Please don't spoil the location of where the badger is, but feel free to discuss, post screenies of your favourite thing, just generally do whatever  ^_^ If you wish for me to remove your face from the game then let me know and i'll get right on it. But it won't be until tomorrow because i'm peacing the scene for tonight. Enjoy!


A special thanks to the beautiful faces:

Just gotta take the loss, shrug it off and say ggwp. There's always next time right?

#1995829 Little Pleasantries

Posted by Dazz on 30 October 2016 - 09:04 AM

- When someone intentionally talks to me with their eyes, but not necessarily their mouth. I love nonverbal communication, and my heart bubbles when I can have a small conversation with someone primarily using just our eyes. It's like suddenly we have secrets, "in-jokes", and are "next-level" friends. lol :p



Okay well I have about five million new songs that I'm going to be spamming your facebook with in the next few days.

I'm going to be an awful person and say that my little joy is getting up on Saturday at 5am, making tea and walking down to the park to have a cigarette while watching the sunrise. Then coming home to take a warm shower and back to sleep.


Don't lie to me Cara, I have 0 songs from you! I'll just assume you sent them through snail mail...

#1995103 Little Pleasantries

Posted by Dazz on 22 October 2016 - 11:08 AM

The little things in life? I couldn't come up with a decent title so I went for little pleasantries because...



Anyways I'm curious as to know what the little things in your life are that you adore. Maybe it's as simple as a relaxing bath after a long day, starting those first few pages of a new book, or eating ice cream on a scorching day. I don't know it's your world not mine, but if you're at all interested I'll list a few of my own personal ones.


The English language - More so the word play and the different styles of the language, it's something I enjoy playing with daily, as long as the person i'm talking to isn't as dull as a potato. I don't know, i've learnt a lot just from experience on what pleases the brain more I guess? It can turn something dull into something more fun, more vivid. Like using imagery, instead of saying "ah we're really deep into it now" I'll liken it to being deep down into the rabbit hole, it plants an image into their head and if they're an Alice in Wonderland fan, then that's a bonus  ^_^ Also I love using the thing where you use words with the same letter or sound at the start, I can't remember what it's called but an example would be instead of saying "choose a piece" I'll say "pick a piece". If you use everything together then it helps to really crank the charm meter up to 11, if you wish to :p



Music - This one's a given, something as small as finding a new song I really enjoy will make my whole day, especially if the song gives me goosebumps, that's when I know i've found something special. I remember watching an interview with my idol talking about how the pursuit of coffee has ruined the world, that people would rather spend 20 on two coffees that they will eventually piss down the toilet, but will refuse buy music, or an album that'll last forever, and I completely agree. I think one very drunken night I wrote an essay in my notes on the importance of music to me, which brings me ever so smoothly on to my next little pleasantry...


Notes - The notes app in my phone is a goldmine. It has everything from songs, jokes, cheesy pickup lines, drunken thoughts, ideas, dreams, motivational speeches... everything. I'm currently up to 175 but this is a newish phone so there'll be plenty more to come. Every time I open them up and look through I end up cracking myself up with some of the shit I've written. "It's not tarantula level but it's more like a little house spider level" - This was me talking about one of my girl friend's legs when I was drinking with her, which I found so hilarious I guess I wrote it down to cement that memory forever  :lol: One day I'll try find my old phone because that's full of comedy gold, I was writing a ton of notes during a very uhh blurry period of time.


So those are my 3 little diamonds I guess, at this point I've almost forgotten what the topic is about in the first place. I'm pretty sure the main reason was just to make a pun about trees. But share your little pleasantries, the little things in your life that you adore the most  ^_^


Posted by Dazz on 11 October 2016 - 06:21 AM

I can't sleep in silence so usually I'll throw music like Nujabes or something on to sleep to. But sometimes, just sometimes, if I'm feeling a little bit cheeky, and a tiny bit naughty...


#1991687 Tell me something bad that happened to you today.

Posted by Dazz on 30 August 2016 - 01:45 PM

Crashed the bike :( Thankfully the damage to it is pretty minimal, but the worst part was being trapped under it, and the woman who knocked me off was more concerned about checking the scratch on the side of her car, rather than me laying helplessly shouting for help to lift the fucking bike off me. But no by all means go ahead and check the scratch on your car, don't mind me just chilling on the side of the road with a heavy ass bike laying on top of me, das coo, I hope your car is fine.
