Kieran’s Dream goals

Hey

Everyone I thought I would tell you about what some of my dream goals to achieve are.
My dream car to drive or own is a Mclaren 650s you can see a picture of it below


I would like to go the home of cricket Lords and watch a cricket match and also while I’m in England go to Old Trafford in Manchester and watch Manchester United play as they are my favourite Soccer team in the world.

I would like to go to every Formula 1 race circuit and I would like to start with Singapore as it’s my favourite Formula 1 circuit and end with Melbourne as that’s my home Formula 1 race.

I would like to go to every super cars event in Australia and New Zealand I have been to Adelaide and you can check out my post on my experience my Adelaide 500 experience here the next track I would like to go to is Tasmania as that is my favourite Super Cars circuit one of the circuit’s that I need to do is Bathurst but I would like to go up there for a whole event and feel the atmosphere of other Supercars fans.

I would like to go over to America and watch a Utah Jazz game as they are my favourite NBA team and while I’m there go and watch an NFL game and a MLB game both of these games will need to be in New York as my favourite NFL team is the Giants and my favourite MLB team is the Yankees

Thanks for reading I would like to know some of dream goals that you want to achieve and why you want to achieve them, I would also like to know what some of you favourite sports teams and arenas or stadiums are in the world. My favourite Arena or Stadium in the world would have to be the Adelaide oval as I’m from Adelaide but I’m also there every second week watch an event.

Until next time

Weekly Wrap 28th April 2018

Even though this week was a short week at work it felt like a long one, getting back into the work groove after a few weeks off was tough, that being said I still made time to get on Mates Madness early in the week to share another of the videos taken whilst I was in Melbourne on my family holiday. Check out the active animals at the Melbourne Zoo.

Kieran shared his overall Batman collection, there is some pretty cool stuff there. Do you guys have a favourite from his current Batman Collection

Kieran and I also conducted a little bit of mad science (see the pun, Mates Madness) we dropped a whole heap of different lollies into Coca Cola (Coke) to check out the different reactions so pretty cool and some were fizzers.

As mentioned above it was short work week with Anzac Day falling mid week on a Wednesday, Lest We Forget. A day of acknowledgement of a fallen soldiers a day where we reflect on the significant sacrifices made by the Australian and New Zealand soldiers to enable us to have the life that we have today.

Mates Madness launched a new app and probably the best app that we have made so far Astronaut Space Walk a flappy bird clone but instead of an Astronaut dodging Super Mario style tubes you guide an Astronaut between the satellites on his space walk, its no where near as easy as it looks.

 

Kieran shared his AFL fantasy team and explained some of his reasons behind his selections and his lack of trades, personally with Ablett being injured for a few weeks now I would have traded him out or at least moved him to the bench, there are also some really good new players in the AFL system this year getting games already so I have made some changes to my bench players before prices went up and grabbed some really good bargains on those players but its looks like he has missed out on that.

That’s where the site but not where my week ended, Friday afternoon I found out one of the guys who works at my youngest daughters child care plays footy and his team the Modbury Hawks forfeited the week before because they were short of players. I have not played football (Aussies Rules) in 8-9 years about this time every year I get itchy feet and consider going back out to play somewhere. This information about Modbury has given me itchy feet. Modbury’s ground is only 5 minutes from home and they are also the Hawks which is a big selling point for me. The team he plays in is the D grade so the bottom end competition and considering how long its been since I have played and how unfit I am its the perfect place for me to have a go. Yesterday to help me decide I went out to watch the team play (the C grade had a bye so a few players dropped down for the day giving the them a full side). The team looks good there are a few good players and also a few not so good players who are just out there to have a bit of fun like what I am thinking of doing. This is encouraging for me because it means I wont look out of place while I find a bit of fitness and allowing my skill level to gradually improve over the course of the season. So I have something to think about, if I am going to play I need to make a decision by Wednesday as I will need to go buy some boots and stuff and train and meet the team Thursday night to give me a shot at playing this coming weekend. I will keep you updated with my decision and if I decide to play I will try to arrange either Kieran or someone else to come watch to try to capture some footage of how I go.

Thats a wrap folks

My AFL Fantasy Team

Hey

Everyone with it just over a quarter the way through for the 2018 AFL season I thought I would give you an idea of what my AFL Fantasy Team looks like

You can see in the picture below at what my team looks like so far and this is what it was at the start of the season so I haven’t done any trades this season.

Because I think why would you want to trade a player out if you don’t like them any more or there not getting the ball as much or not playing any games if you trade them out because they aren’t getting the ball what makes you think they will play like that for the rest of the season

You can see that I have Patrick Dangerfield as my vice-captain and Tom Mitchell as my Captain the reason I haven’t got Patrick as my Captain and Tom as is because Tom gets more possessions then Patrick most games and I get double points for having Tom as my captain to.

You can also see that I have four Geelong players in my team Zach Guthrie, Patrick Dangerfield, Gary Ablett and Sam Menegola which are probably my four of my five Favourite AFL players the fifth being Daniel Menzel the reason he isn’t in my team is because I don’t have any more money to get him. And also, I don’t want to trade any of my players at the moment.

If you think I should change something on my team I would really like to hear your ideas and I will take them on. I would also like to hear about who’s in your team and why certain players are in the team. Another thing I would like to hear is who is you favourite AFL player past or Present it doesn’t matter my Favourite player of all time is Jimmy Bartel.

Until next time

New Android App – Astronaut Space Walk

Today the latest Mates Madness app went live on the Play Store. Its a game/clone of flappy bird but I must say a little harder, the gaps between the obstacles are a little smaller that being said its based in space and who doesn’t like space. Check out me poorly playing Astronaut Space Walk in the video below

As you can see I am pretty crap at the game but you get the idea, I would love to see some of the high scores from the readers here on Astronaut Space Walk, maybe download play/test our game then comment below with your highest score maybe even screen shot it and share it to your socials.

Please check us out on the Play Store we currently have a few different “Match 3” games around different genres to cater for different taste and are looking to expand our games though. Check out the game I made for my 6yr old daughter to play Rainbows and Unicorns I would like some ideas as to what theme to use for the next clone of this script, is there a particular theme that you would like to see/play?

Over the next few days we are also hoping to release a web browser “simple fast secure browser lite” yes a long name but it is search optimized in the hope more people download it and use it. Check back to the Play Store often over the next few days to look for it as we really appreciate if you could support us by using this as your default browser once it is up and running.

At the end of the month I will share our monthly earnings including what app has made the most income, how much the Mates Madness website has made and future earning plans with you all.

Once again we appreciate your support and hope to see you back here on Mates Madness soon either on desktop or through our web browser on you android device

Cheers

Matt

Anzac Day

Hey

Everyone with today being the 25th of April it is Anzac Day in Australia and New Zealand. So, I thought I would get up a post celebrating the day that we get taught from very young how important it is.

Some people have different things they like to do on Anzac day some people wake up early and go to a dawn services, some people go and see family or friends and have a catch up or a barbecue and some people go to the MCG and watch the Anzac day AFL match between Collingwood and Essendon and some people wait till a bit later and go to Aami park and watch the Melbourne storm play.

One thing I like to do is sit down and watch the Anzac day match between Collingwood and Essendon and I also like to watch the Melbourne storm play as the Melbourne Storm are my favourite team is the NRL.

But this day means a lot to people not just from Australia but also New Zealand as we joined forces and tried to help in WW1 another thing that most of us like are Anzac Biscuits if you haven’t had one you need to try them you might like them or you might not like them but at least you have tried them and you can have your own opinion on them not just hearing somebody opinion on them.

Some thing else that happens every year is people try and go over to Gallipoli and see where the soldiers were getting shot by other soldiers trying to stop them from getting on to the beach.

If you would like to see what it like to be at an AFL game when its and Anzac round game you can do so by checking out the video below.

thanks for reading this post and I hope you have a good rest of your Anzac Day

until next time

Mates Madness Mad Science with Coke

Hi All

Recently Kieran and I tried a few simple chemical reactions involving Coca Cola and a few other drink in the Coke range such as Diet Coke, Coke No Sugar Sprite and Fanta. We dropped a range of different lollies into the drinks to watch the reaction.

As you can see in the video above we have a lot of different sweet treats that we use in the Cokes and yes we had a few left over to eat. The Orange balloon that was inflated by the chemical reaction was still up 20 minutes later and showed no signs of deflating anytime soon.

Afterwards we remembered that we also had a pack of fruit tingles and a couple of other lollies so we might have to make a second version of this at some stage. I was excited to test out the Mentos reaction which is very common it also had the best reaction out of all of the sweets we tested. I did expect a better reaction from bicarb soda as well but oh well.

Smartly we decided to do this experiment in a park to limit the sticky clean up with Coke and the other drinks going everywhere.

Now from the video we can see that our camera skills need a bit of work but bare with us we will get better

We are hoping to do a range of experiments with white vinegar next if this video is well received, are there anything that you would like to see us mix with vinegar?

Cheers

Kieran’s Batman collection

Hey

everyone I thought I would show you my Batman collection that I have so far, as you guys know I’m a massive batman fan and I would like to continue my batman collection you can see in the video below at how my batman collection is below

you can see my pop vinyl collection that I have so far in the video as well but if you would like to read about it you can do so by going to my-batman-pop-vinyls

My favourite Batman item I have is the Bat-cave sign as it lets you know that you are entering the bat-cave also one item that I would like to add to my collection but i want be happening for a little while is a full scale batman suit, or a full scale batman statue but it will take me a little while to get either one of them if i could i would like to have them both. One goal i have is to have a full blown man cave but I would call it a bat-cave because it will have all Batman stuff in it.

Thanks for reading my post and watching the video I would like to see or hear about your favourite Batman item in your collection, and I would also like to hear what you think abut my Collection so far and if you would like to recommend something to add to my collection i would certainly take them on and it will hopefully help me make it bigger.

I will keep you up to date with any new Batman item I get that adds to my collection and it will hopefully be a bit bigger by the end of the year with some new pop vinyls or figures or maybe a batman mobile figure.

Until next time

Melbourne Zoo – Some very active Animals on display

So as part of my family holiday we visited Melbourne Zoo, now it was by far not the biggest nor had the most animals but it was probably the best zoo experience I have had, almost all of the animals were up and about including pretty much all the big draw card animals you can think of when you think about going to a zoo. I was very impressed, the enclosures were large, the views of the animals were great I mean in all but 3 or 4 exhibits you didn’t have to spend 2 minutes finding the animals they were right there in front of you piratically saying hello.

Check out our short video of the lion this big cat was just a couple of metres from the glass and my little 3 yr old girl walked right up to the glass to get a good look, it may as well have been a kitten at the pet store as far as she was concened

Another of the big cats were up and about as well with the tiger pacing back and forth along the edge of its enclosure before going for a big wander to the other side. This is one of two tigers, the other in a different part of the zoo.

Some of the other animals on display included a pigmi hippo, plenty of different types of primates from chimps, gorilla and baboons. Other animals included an elephant, near the back of its enclosure pacing, 3 giraffes which we got a great view of and some zebras which were near the back of there exhibit looking like they wanted to get it to say hi to the giraffes. I also caught an active snake as we walked by which was pretty cool as most of the times at zoos they are just laying there still. As mentioned above I thought Melbourne Zoo was great and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Melbourne or even if you live there if you haven’t been for a while go back and check it out.

Weekly Wrap 22nd April 2018

A more up beat week over the last 7 days, a few shares from my holiday last weekend (more to come next week). The first was my footy footage of the Hawks V Melbourne

A great game to watch all be it freezing cold, even Iron Man made and appearance to promote an  Avengers event in Melbourne. Throughout the rest of the week to be honest I lazed around trying to relax and enjoy the the rest of my holidays from work which didn’t quite go to plan with plenty of house work needing to be done.

I also shared with you all footage from Sea Life Melbourne Aquarium a place my girls aged 6 and 3 loved there was so many different marine animals to see and the tanks were fantastic you got a great view of most of them, Laila my eldest loved the penguins but there were plenty of other fish to see

 

We would love for you to subscribe to our you tube channel, Kieran got a hair cut and showed us his new do he was also quite excited when his team Geelong got up over Port Adelaide 

Something we didn’t discuss here on the Mates Madness website but was a pretty big effort in sport (shared on our twitter account) was Oakland A’s left handed pitching pitching the first no hitter of the 2018 MLB season and the first for the Boston no hit game for the Boston Red Sox since Aprill 22 1993 25 years ago.

So if you have not done so follow us on Twitter, subscribe to our You Tube channel and share this post on your socials and any other post here on Mates Madness that you enjoy.

Port Adelaide vs Geelong Round 5 Anzac Round 2018

Hey

as you guys know me and Matt have season membership passes to all port home games and me being a Geelong supporter I was happy about this being a Port home game as I only get to wear my Geelong stuff to watch them live once maybe twice a year.

You can see all the Port Adelaide vs Geelong footage I took in the video below of what I got. With it being the Anzac round, they do the last post and National Anthem you can almost hear a pin drop with how quiet it is in the ground and it just picks up when the National Anthem is done with the players go back and wait for the game to start.

I was happy with the result but I would of thought the Peter Badcoe medal should of gone to somebody else then Joel Selwood I would like to see George Horlin-Smith win it. Because George was on the ball more than Joel and Had more Disposals and didn’t lose the ball to much ever.

But other then that this was an alright game of football and I hope it will be like this for the rest of the year
after the game we went and got some tea and went back to Damo house and played some NBA 2k18. I was just watching Matt and Damo play, they chose to go all-time best with Matt picking the New York Knicks and Damo picking The Philadelphia 76ers. Damo won the game with Wilt Chamberlin dominating getting 29 points and 17 rebounds.

Maybe we might do a post on us playing each other and seeing who is the best.

Until next time
Kieran
