Someone Else ( Part 11 ) UPDATED

<< Image coming soon >>

Jerry was in shock. What he read was completely scary. He didn't knew that those people he saw through the black glasses could do something bad to him, as it said in the paper. He didn't knew what to do. Maybe if he conserve the glasses? Nothing would happen then. But he said to Victor that he would destroy them. Jerry knew very clear that those glasses where, in a special way, dangerous to him and everyone else. If what the paper said was true, in that case he couldn't destroy the glasses. But he must destroy them. So, destroy them or conserve them? That was a big decision now.

Meanwhile, in Victor's House

- Victor -
<< What? >> thought Victor. Someone just said his name. But no one else was there, in his room. His mom went to the Bank just some minutes ago, and he was alone in the House.
<< I think I just imagined it >> he thought
He continued watching his favorite program in the TV. It was raining with more intensity than before, now the Thunders could be heard very clear. The Sun was about to fall, and he began to be scared.
- Victor - 
Now he hadn't any doubt about it. He really heard it. Someone was there. Victor turned his head around, very carefully, trying to find the one that was calling him.
But he couldn't see no one.
Then he remembered about the black glasses. He thought in the possibility that he couldn't see anyone because he wasn't wearing them. So he said:
- Is anyone there? -
There was no answer. The only thing he could hear was the thunders. But when he was going to see the TV again, something happened. The images in the TV began to be confusing. The screen turned into very distorted colors, like the colors of a rainbow.
Just like when he put on the Black Glasses some hours ago.
That worried him even more. Suddenly, he heard something else:
- Victor... why do you want to destroy us? - 
That voice was very frightening, very hoarse. Victor began shaking. He took a metal brat that he had near of him. Then, he began walking very slowly to the Door, saying:
- Who are you? -
- Why? We haven't do anything bad to you... we do not deserve it... - said the voice, turning angry
- What? But I don't want  to destroy you, I only want to destroy the glasses! - Victor said, shaking
In that moment, something pushed Victor to the floor very strong. He screamed of terror, as the same time the brat fell to the floor too, some meters away from him.
- We do not deserve it... - said again the voice
Victor was really scared. He could hardly breathe. Then, he took his cellphone from his pocket. He called Jerry, as the same time he was leaning in a side of his table.

Meanwhile, in Jerry's house:

<< Rrring -  Rrring >> Sounded Jerry's cellphone

- Who could it be? - said Jerry, in low voice, as the same time he answered the call.

<< Hello? >>
<< Jerry... Jerry! Help me! Please! >>
<< Victor? What is-- what is happening? >>
<< They are here, Jerry! They really want the glasses back! >>
<< Victor, what are you talking about? Are you ok?? >>
<< Run, Jerry! Run and save you before they-- *Click* >>
<< Beep. Beep. Beep. >>

- Victor! Are you there? - said Jerry, worried - Victor?? -
Jerry knew that something bad happened to Victor, but who was trying to harm him? And why did the call suddenly ended? Then, he understood what Victor was trying to tell him in the call.
- I must destroy those glasses - he said, in low voice.
So he took the black glasses from his pocket, and then he said, nervous:
- Well, here I go -
And with all his might, he pulled apart each side of the glasses. But nothing. He tried to break them through other way, but nothing. So he put the glasses in the floor, and started to crush them with his feet. But nothing! The glasses where still normal!
- What? How can I destroy you? - said Jerry to the glasses - you are unbreakable... -
In that moment, Jerry felt something strange. Like if he was being observed.
He turned his head around, but he didn't see anything.
- Who's there? - said Jerry, nervous
Then he remembered about the glasses. So he put them on, expecting to see another "dead" person through them. But, even with the black glasses on, Jerry couldn't see anyone in his room.
And just when he was going to take the glasses away, he heard something.
- Give us the Glasses -
Now Jerry was really scared.
It was Victor's voice.

Adventure Party 2011 here!

Hello penguins! How are you today? I'm fine! I am very sorry to not post these days ( though there where many new things ) because I was busy with many other things. Well, to start, I think that you already know that the Adventure Party 2011 is here already, right? Well, I am really excited by this party! Well, in this post I will talk about many special features of the Party. To start, you may know that many rooms of the Island have changed. Now, we can find wilderness in the rooms, special trees and much more! Also, there are new rooms and features, even new special mini - games. Oh, I almost forgot! Rockhopper has arrived to join us in this great celebration! Though there are many red - crabs everywhere... Also, one of the principal purposes in the party is to find Rockhopper's lost Cream Soda barrels. In order to do this, you will have to follow certain clues through all the Island, until you find them! You can also read about it in Rockhopper's Headquarters, in the Newspaper, and in some posters that are located in several parts of the Island. So, here is what you have to do:

1- Treasure Hunt

1st Step: Telescope
In order to reach and complete this step ( there are 4 steps in total ) you will have to go first to the Migrator ( Rockhopper's ship ) and then read the note that is next to the Captain's Headquarters Door. It will say that all the Cream Soda barrels are missing! Oh no! But don't worry, we have to go to the Iceberg, as the note says. Now, here we can see a palm, some sand, some coconuts, some boxes... oh see! There's the Squid! The posters says that we can feed it. Now, you have to throw him food ( the Snowball will turn into a fish! ) and then, he will throw you a Telescope and a special note! Awesome! Let's see what the note says: Avast! We pirates found this Telescope. Ye best be sailing at the Dock. Also, you will receive a free item. Now, let's go to the Dock for the next clue! Oh and thanks Squid... there are many red crabs in here...

2nd Step: Feather
Once you arrive to the Dock, you will see a ship, some sand forts, and something that seems a strange machine right up the Ship. Oh no! The box came down and crashed with the Ship, destroying it! Well, it seems that it's our turn to fix it. You will have to put the correct part in the correct place, in order to arm the ship correctly. Once you finish, something will get out from the Third Cannon. Wow! It is a feather and another special note. It says: Happened upon this feather today. May want to speak with the Birds... Also, you will get a Feather pin. Well, it is very curious that this note is more formal and elegant that the first one, don't you think? Well, it says something about "speak with the Birds"... but, where can I find birds? Oh, I think that I know the answer! The special room that is located  at the Forest! Well, let's go... there are many red crabs here too!

3rd Step: Key
To get into this special party room you have to climb one of the Trees that are at the Forest. ( As many can remember, this room was only for Members last year's party. I am very glad that now it isn't! ) Oh, see! Here are many birds, just as I expected! Also here are many other things... I think that this place is very good to make a party and hang out with friends :) Well, where could be the next clue? See! There's a poster saying that we have to press the drums in the correct order, following the bird's song. To do this, you have to hear the song's notes, and click the drums following them. You will have to press 5 drums. Once you finished, you will get the "Music Maestro!" stamp! Oh, look! An egg has fallen to that nest! And inside it has a key and another special note. Here is what the note says: We gots this Map and Key. Somebody left 'em, Dunno who! Also, you will win a key pin. Also, I don't know why... but it seems that the note is stained with honey, don't you think? Well, in the map it shows an "X" in the Cove... I think that we should go there! This is strange.. it seems that the Island is full of red crabs!

4th Step: Treasure!
Oh yes, the name of this step is Treasure! And why? Because this is the final step, in which you finally find the hidden treasure! Well, not so hidden at all, because it is located underneath that Big "X". Just like the map! Well, to get the treasure you have to be wearing only a Hammer - Hat. You can get one free just there! Once you start digging, the floor will begin opening, and then, the Treasure will be out! Oh, see! The treasure was the missing Cream Soda barrels! Now, you get a prize, a special hat. Oh, it seems that Rockhopper has given us a note! It says: Arr! Me Cream Soda be safe! Ye be a fine pirate finding it! Fair winds! Thanks, Rockhopper! Now that you completed the Treasure Hunt, you have 5 new items! Remember, 4 pins and 1 head item. But the fun doesn't ends here. There are many things you can do with friends! And to help you, here is a list of the rooms I recommend you to go the most:

- Pizza Parlor
- Hidden Lake ( member item! )
- Town
- Cove ( surprise! )
- Snow Forts
- Iceberg
- Rockhopper's Ship
- Ship Battle Room ( members only )
- Tree House

But there's one more thing: As you may have noticed, there have been many crabs in the Island. They are everywhere, and they seem that they know what they're doing. But when I was in the Cove, I saw something very unusual: A Blue Crab! Yes! But, how could it be possible? That's very strange, though... later I investigated more about this and it seems that it only appears 1 time each 30 minutes, according to the Club Penguin Time Zone. Once it appears, he will only look with his eyes to everywhere, and jump into water like 7 seconds later, so it will not be there for much time. So, if you want to see it, go to the Cove each 30 minutes. Now, the question is: who is him? There is an Item selling in the Hidden Lake which is the Blue Crab Costume for $50. I think that all these crabs  ( specially the Blue one ) has something to do with Klutzy the Crab and Herbert. I hope that nothing bad will happen. What do you think about all this? Thanks for reading and see you later in Club Penguin Island! :D

Exclusive: Card - Jitsu Snow!

Hello everyone! How are you today? I'm very good, thanks! As you may know, with the pass of time, Sensei has brought us some new special Dojos ( each one with their own Card - Jitsu Game ) The first one taked place with the activation of the Volcano, to bring Card - Jitsu Fire. Later, ( 1 year later ) taked place the 1st Rain ever in Club Penguin Island, to bring Card - Jitsu Water in the Waterfall. Many penguins have been wondering when will appear Card - Jitsu Snow, the third of the Club Penguin elements. But today, while I was searching in the Web, I saw an image  from my friend Saraapril, showing up an Image of a new product of Card - Jitsu Snow cards! Yes! And also in Saraapril's post said that Card - Jitsu Snow will start this year, in November. So I had an idea in that moment, making some research to find out more about this future Card - Jitsu! So, in this post, I will talk about some of the things you need to know about Card - Jitsu Snow. Just remember that they are not 100% guarantee to be right, or to happen.

- The Location

As you may know, each Dojo has a different location. As I already said, the Dojo of Fire locates at the Volcano, and the Dojo of Water in the Waterfall. So, where could be most probably for the Dojo of Snow to be located? Well, as you can see in the Image, ( click to enlarge ) each Dojo location has to be seen from the Dojo Courtyard. Also, each dojo is related with its element, because the Volcano has fire and lava, the Waterfall has water, but  what thing in there is related to Snow? Well, almost everything is covered by Snow! But there's one thing that is more relevant than the others: the Mountain! It has snow in its top, so the most probable thing that may happen is that the Dojo of Snow ( for Card - Jitsu Snow ) may be in the Mountain! ( probably inside, as all the other Dojos )

- The Outfit

Oh, I think that you already noticed the Exclusive Card - Jitsu Snow outfit I made, right? I lasted like 1 hour and 30 minutes making it. And if you can observe very carefully to the details, I made this Image modifying an original Card - Jitsu Water outfit. Well, to start, I changed the colors of blue to grey and white, because they symbolize snow. Then I added some snow flakes images from Club Penguin, and finally added my "Je45rry" marks to show that I am the owner of the Image. As you can see, it has the same design - system of other card - jitsu outfits ( each Card - Jitsu Element has its own outfit and power ), like the element's symbol. Remember that this is'nt the real Card - Jitsu Snow outfit that will appear in Club Penguin, it was made by me with by how I imagine it. Do you like it? Remember that if you want to post it in your blog you have to give me credit about it, ok? ( And ask me for permission )

Those are some exclusives that I have for Card Jitsu - Snow. Remember that this post is always in risk to be changed, because nothing is 100% sure. They are only ideas from me that could me possible, but also could be not. Remember that Club Penguin is always disposed to change some things, so be careful. Also, if you want to post any image in this post in your website, ask me for permission and then give me credit, please. Later I will update this post with more information,so please keep visiting the blog for more awesome and incredible info about Card Jitsu and Club Penguin! Thanks for reading this, please comment with your opinion and see you later in Club Penguin Island! :D

DJ3K Game Update!

UPDATE: I just realized that this Game Update taked place some weeks ago :/ But I will not delete this post, in a way to help those who doesn't know already, ok? :)

Hello penguins! Today when I was exploring the Island, I decided to take my Yellow Puffle ( Goldy ) to play with me at the Dance Club in the Game DJ3K. But when I entered the home page of the game, it was very different! To start, it seems that Club Penguin Team is planning to update the game, because there where many bugs ( some of them where that there where mispellings and other wrong things ) like instead of saying the correct Track Name, it said something like this: [ldrtrack_ld_undefined not ready] So I think that the game might experience a very special update. But I didn't paid attention to that and I started playing the game. It seemed normal, until I saw something strange in the screen. In the up - part of it, there was a type of special bar. In its right seemed to be a Red Button, such as the buttons of "Recording", and in its right side it was a type of Mute button that was already activated. Also, I noticed that I couldn't press any button, and my penguin ( ad yellow puffle ) where very still. So, I decided to click that red button to see what happens.
pimp your myspace

In that moment, my penguin started dancing ( as the same as my yellow puffle ), the lights turned on, and I now could press buttons! The problem is that not many buttons where available to press in that moment because when I did so, they didn't make nothing. I tried to activate sound ( the music ) but it doesn't let me. So, because I was very confused and I couldn't hear anything, I decided to press the "Square" button that had replaced the red one ( the square button means "Stop" ) And when I did so, appeared a special window that showed a disk, and two button options ( that said something like: [id_save not ready] ad [id_cancel not ready] ) But I could see the "Member" logo in the first option, and because I am not member I pressed the second option. It redirected me to the Home page of the game.

Then, I decided to click the "Instructions" option in the Home page of the game. It appeared a square with 4 images in it. But I couldn't reaad anything, because it was confusing. But in the letters, I could distinguish some words. One in each image. Also, I began to analyze very carefully the Images that appeared in the square. I think that they should be trying to say something, so I tried to mix the words with the Images, in order. Here is what I made ( The number means the Image number and the word what I found: )

1.- Mix
2.- Record
3.- Stop
4.- Play

And here is what I made following the Images:

1.- Choose a song to Mix
2.- Record your own mix, make what you want!
3.- Once you finish, stop your mix and save it ( only for members! )
4.- Play it in your own Igloo!

Awesome, right? So, I think that the new purpose of the game is to make your own mixes ( with help of the ones that are available for members in the Dance Club ), save it if you are a member ( if you are not a member, you can play the game but not save your mixes ) and once you save it, you can play it as the Music in your own Igloo for parties, special events and more! :D I think that this is one of the many renovations the Club Penguin Team wanted to do when they rised the Membership prices. Good idea, Club Penguin Team! I think that many Member penguins will be happy with his DJ3K Game update! It is a such great idea to make our own music for different time parties. It is so amazing! I think that it will be a great way to make your own Igloo music. Thanks for reading this and see you later in Club Penguin Island!

NOTE: This post also talks about a bug that the DJ3K Game is having.

Reviewed by You: Adventure!

Hello penguins! Guess what? Billybob just posted in Club Penguin´s Community Blog the "Reviewed by You" of this week! It is named "Adventure!" ( I think that they give that name by a very special Party that's coming up soon ) Last week's question was about what special moments did you had with a very helpful friend, who has helped you several times, in special occasions and that you are very loyal to. Can you remember all the things I said last "Reviewed by You!" post? That there are many ways to help a friend! Some of them are very easy, like giving them a Tour by the Island, helping them to collect a special Stamp that they really want or just even play with them in a game to earn some coins! Others need more patient and comprehension, like helping them to get out of a problem they have. Those are helpful friends ( or good friends ) Now, Jellybug2000´s comment was selected! Congratulations! Here is what he/she said about:

Someone who has been helpful to me has been one of my good friends Jennatlc. She showed me around Club Penguin and she helped me with quests along the way! We have done everything together and she is supportive to other people and follows all of the rules! Plus, she loves to help people with pins and stamps! I hope she gets the 10,000 coins because I think she did a great job! Waddle on Cp!

I am very happy that there are many helpful friends in the Island just like Jennatlc, don't you? It was very nice to offer Jennatlc your $10,000 coins, Jelllybug2000! You are a very helpful and nice friend! Now, this week's question talks something more related to something that is coming up very soon: The Adventure Party! Yes! Here is what Billybob said about: This week, we'd love to hear about how you create adventures around the island... ( and here comes this Week's "Reviewed by You!" question: ) What's been your favorite adventure with friends on Club Penguin so far? Well, that is a very nice question, Billybob! We all had adventures in Club Penguin sometime, right? It could be like the first time you saw the Squid ( a secret Club penguin animal, I will talk more about it later ) with a friend, the first time you solved a mystery as an EPF Agent, or even when you completed any of the 3 Medieval Quests! Remember that the selected answer's penguin will get a reward of $10,000 coins. I already submitted my answer! :) What do you think about all this? Please send a comment and see you later in Club Penguin Island! :D

Someone Else ( Part 9 - 10 )

Story for people from 10+ ages

There was no figure now.
Mary ( Jerry's mom ) and Victor's mom ran downstairs, alerted by their son's screams. Victor and Jerry didn't moved or said anything, until Victor's mom said:
- Victor! What happens here? - she said, restless
They couldn't have never described the strange scene they where seeing that moment. Victor was completely still, without moving anything. He was completely pale by the big scary experience he just had some seconds ago. 
- We heard screams - said Mary - coming from here. What was happening? - she asked, rapidly
- Mom, we... we saw a rat! - lied Jerry 
- A rat?!? From where?!? - said Victor's mom
- Ummm... I don't know... but it left - said Jerry, lying again
In that moment, Victor started moving. The first thing he said was:
- Umm, umm... yes, we are ok - he said, still shaking
- That's strange... well, I am going to prepare some tea. Would you like some? - asked Victor's mom to Victor, Jerry and Mary, almost forgetting about what happened.
- Yes, please - said Jerry and Victor at the same time
- I will help you - said Mary to Victor's mom
Then, they leaved the room to the kitchen. When Jerry and Victor where alone again, Jerry asked:
- Victor, what did you saw through the glasses? - 
Victor didn't answered immediately. He just stared looking to the glasses ( which where on the floor ) for some seconds, until he answered:
- It was.... horrible, Jerry... - he said, in a low voice and shaking - it was like... a person with no face! -
- What? - said Jerry, impressed
- It was just behind you... but you didn't saw it, right? - he said, looking at Jerry with a scary face
- Umm... no, I didn't saw it, because I didn't had the glasses on... - he answered
- I, I believe you... but, what do we have to do? Should we destroy the glasses? Or should we conserve them? - 
- I certainly don't know, Victor - 
- I think... that we should destroy them. I don't know how do they make all that... but I am sure that they are not good for anyone of us! - Victor paused for some moments - Shall we throw them to the river? Or destroy them by other way? - 
Jerry didn't know what to say. 
- Jerry? Please answer me! - said Victor
- Umm... well, Victor... why don't we conserve them? - 
- What?!? Conserve those horrible glasses?!? Why? They aren't from this World, Jerry! We HAVE to destroy them now! - 
                  PART 10                          

Jerry thought about that for some minutes, until he finally said:
- You are right, Victor... we have to destroy them - he said, nervous
- But, how? - 
- I... don't know... - said Jerry - but I think that we should-- 
In that moment Mary and Victor's mom arrived to the room, carrying cups of tea in their hands.
- One for Jerry and other one for my dear - said Victor's mom
- And these for us - said Mary
Jerry and Victor began drinking their tea like if nothing happened some minutes ago. Everything was all right, until something happened to Jerry.
He began cooughing, but some seconds later, the coughs went stronger.
- Jerry? Are you ok? - said Mary
But Jerry couldn't answer. He was feeling something very strong in his mouth, that was choking him. He couldn't breathe. He began coughing even more and more stronger, trying to get whatever that was there out of his mouth. 
- Jerry? Jerry?!? Are you ok?!? - said Victor
And just in the moment he was thinking that he was going to die, something strange happened.
He felt like if something got out of his mouth, though he didn't see anything. After that, he started breathing normal.
- OMG, Jerry, are you ok? Do you need something?!? - said Mary, scared
- Oh mom, no... I'm alright now... - he said, scared
- You almost give me a heart attack, Jerry! - said Mary
When they finished drinking their tea, ( except for Jerry, who didn't wanted to drink tea anymore ) Victor went and grabbed the black glasses from the floor, nervous. Then, he gave them to Jerry.
But before he could put them in his pocket, he remembered what happened some minutes ago.
The invisible - strange thing that he felt.
<< Could it be possible? >> thought Jerry, as the same time he put the glasses on.
He saw everything in the usual strange colors. He saw Victor, his mom, Victor's mom and everything else. The strange figure that Victor said like an hour ago seemed to be gone now. Everything seemed normal, until he saw something in the floor.
Something little.
Just like a paper.
But it was like wrinkled, forming a paper ball.
Then, he took the glasses off.
And, there was nothing there, indeed.
He put the glasses on.
The paper ball was there again.
It seemed that the paper ball could only be seen with the black glasses. Jerry was amazed. He began walking to it, slowly, until he grabbed the paper from the floor.
It was the thing that was choking him some minutes ago!
But he couldn't see anything more of it because he had to bid farewell Victor and his mom, because they where leaving now. He said to Victor:
- Tomorrow we will continue talking about this, ok? -
- Ok, Jerry. But promise me that you will not use those glasses again -
- I will do my best - he said
Jerry and his mom entered the car very carefully ( it was still raining ) and they began their way to their house. When they arrived there, Jerry put the glasses on again, breaking the promise he made with Victor. Then, he took the paper from his pocket. He began unrolling it, until the paper was completely extended. It seemed to be something written in it. But he was horrified when he read it. There it said, in very red letters:

                               If you destroy the glasses,
                                We will destroy you.

Someone Else ( Part 8 )

Story for people from 10+ ages.

- Do you have something to do with all this? -
In that moment, Jerry's mom entered the room.
- Dear, what are you watching in the TV? -
- Nothing mom... everyone is talking about this storm... - Jerry said, worried
- Well, in that case... - said Jerry's mom, as the same time he turned off the TV - why don't you go to Victor's House? I can take you there in the car - she said, smiling
- Really? But, I thought you didn't want me to go outside - he didn't finished the sentence because his mom interrupted him, saying:
- Alone, Jerry. With me, is very different - she said, looking at him.
Jerry toked the glasses, then he leaved the room ad entered the car with his mom. Jerry's mom began driving, but being carefully to not cause an accident. When they arrived to Victor's house, they rang the bell. Victor opened the door, and Jerry and his mom entered the house very fast.
- Jerry! Mary! What a surprise to see you! - said Victor, happy
- I am also very happy to see you, Victor - said Mary, Jerry's mom - and... where's your mom? -
- She is upstairs. If you want, go there - he said
Once Mary leaved the room and went upstairs, Jerry said:
- Victor, there's something very important I need to say you - said Jerry, nervous
- Anything, my friend. What is it? - said Victor
Slowly, Jerry grabbed the black glasses from his pocket, showing them to Victor. Then, he said:
- What do you see here, Victor? - he said, more nervous
- Well, I see black glasses. Are they sunglasses? Because I need some.... - Victor said, laughing
- Victor, don't you see something different in them? -
- Ummm... nope. They seem perfectly normal for me. Why do you ask? -
- Victor.... I found these glasses in the Ice Cream Shop. They appeared mysteriously in my plate -
- And? What's the matter? -
Jerry taked a deep breathe and then he said:
- They aren't normal, Victor. Every time I put them on something strange happens. The first time, I saw Pedro!   -
- Are you talking about... -
- Yes, Victor. It was supposed to be death at that time. Then, I saw a car accident, that happened years ago! And later, I saw a girl crying that wasn't real! -
- Hold on, are you saying me that these glasses, make you see ghosts? -
- Well, I was going to see dead people... - said Jerry, in low voice - but ghosts seem more logic. Ironic, right? - said Jerry, with a strange face.
- But Jerry - said Victor - that is impossible. No one can see dead people. And pretty much less with black glasses. That's such a crazy thing! -
- I know... but it's real-
- And how can you prove me? -
They saw each other with a creepy face. Then, Jerry grabbed the black glasses and given it to Victor.
- Just, be careful - said Jerry
Then, Victor put the glasses on.
He saw everything in a distorted color. Like the colors of a rainbow. But everything else was normal. He could see his books, the chair, the floor, and Jerry. There wasn't something strange in there.
- Well, I have to admit that this glasses make you see everything in different colors... but I can't see anything stra--
He didn't finished the sentence.
There, just behind Jerry, was a figure. A figure of someone using very black clothes, and was lying in the floor.
Just like a dead.
- Victor? Is everything alright? - said Jerry
But he didn't answered. Suddenly, the figure moved his left foot. Then, his right hand. Victor was in a complete horror - shock, and he couldn't react. Jerry began suspecting that Victor was seeing someone through the glasses, so he looked behind him. Jerry couldn't see anything.
- Jerry, there's someone there... just behind you... - said Victor, pointing to the floor and shacking, terrorized.
And then, the figure rose up. Victor could now see all the parts of his body. The arms, the legs, the foot, the hands, except one thing.
The face.
The figure hadn't a face.
Well, at least it wasn't one.
- Jerry!!! - screamed of horror Victor.
The figure started walking to Victor. Very fast.
- Victor, take off those glasses - said Jerry, nervous
The figure raised his arms to Victor.
- Victor, take off those glasses now! -
And just before the figure's hands could touch Victor, he taked the glasses off with a scream.
There was no figure now.

Developer Update ( And Music Video! )

Hello penguins! Billybob recently posted in Club Penguin's Community Blog another "Developer Update" post, but this time he added a new special thing: A Music Video! Awesome, right? A music video is a special video made by people for a specific song, usually the video has something to do to what the song is talking about. Many times, artists make music videos in a way to make the song much better to the audience. Now, Club Penguin has made his own Music Video, in which the song is named "Better Days" from the Penguin Band, and the video has an excellent image quality. It is a very cool and new song from the Band. It forms part in the "Online Celebrations" class that Billybob mentioned in the post. Now, turning back to the Developer Update post, it talks about the improvements the Club Penguin Team is taking action now, like squashing bugs, parties, and special features. I hope that very soon all the Club Penguin Bugs will be squashed totally. Now, here is what Billybob says about all this:

We're continuing to work on a bunch of new things for you. Here's another behind the scenes look at what we've been doing this week:
- New igloo items - We're just about finished work on the latest items for your igloo. Now's a great time to start saving up your coins for some new items!
- Online celebrations - We've seen a ton of great parties happening all over the island. Happy77 and the team filmed some of the action, and made a music video out of it! Check out this official music video for "Better Days," the Penguin Band's new theme song:

- Bug squashing - We're working on a fix for the orange penguin that's appearing for some of you when you log in. We'll have this fixed in the next few weeks after we've finished these first system updates. Thanks for your patience.
-Beta Team game testing - Many of you have already heard about Beta Team, where you can beta test new content we're working on. We're going to release some brand new game prototypes on Beta Team this weekend, so stay tuned!

Very nice, Club Penguin Team! I am very happy that we penguins can be informed about what are you working on. Thanks for that! Now, what did you think of the Music Video? ( Click here if you can't see correctly the video ) In my opinion, is very nice music. And I am very happy that they showed penguins working together in the video; that's why I agreed that it was named "Better Days". It shows us all the nice things we can do together, and that there will be always a better day where we can be all happy and together. Very nice message, Club Penguin! Now, what is your opinion? Did you liked it or not? According to Youtube's page, many people ( the most ) likes the video. I hope that Club Penguin will make more videos like this one, with new awesome music. If so, remember that anytime you are having fun with friends can appear in a Music video! Thanks for reading and see you later in Club Penguin! :D

Inside: Club Penguin Memberships!

 Hello everyone! Today I will talk about a very interesting and important topic: Club Penguin's Memberships. As you may know, what every single penguin wants in the Club Penguin Island is a Membership, right? And why? They bring us the opportunity to access to special rooms, buy special items, change our igloos, access to special events, adopting special puffles and many other things in Club Penguin. And the penguin that doesn't have a Membership ( just like me ) is limited to buy and get items, can't access to special events, can't buy special puffles and many other things. As everyone knows, Club Penguin Memberships are needed to be Bought $ with real - life money. It could be electronic money ( pay - pal,  credit cards and things like that) or cash money ( in stores, like Certificate Gift and Membership Cards ) Only in the first days of Club Penguin ( before it officially opened ) everything was free to already - registered penguins, now named as "Beta Penguins", by being testing Club Penguin in its origins. Many penguins have asked their selves: why Memberships exist? Why can't just Club Penguin lets us to have everything like free? Well, that's one of the questions that I sent to the Club Penguin Team in an e-mail, showing them some of my disappointing feelings about Club Penguin locked levels for non - members. Here are the e-mails: ( from Club Penguin and me )

&lt;&lt; To: Club Penguin Team >>
&lt;&lt; From: Je45rry >>
&lt;&lt; Dear Club penguin:
I am very glad and happy that the stamps are here, but I am a little dissapointed by the locked games... I was thinking if the Club Penguin team can unlock at least one level of each game that changed. ( Aqua Grabber, Jet - Adventure, and more ) >>

&lt;&lt; To: Je45rry >>
&lt;&lt; From: Club Penguin Team >>
&lt;&lt; Thanks for taking the time to write in and let us know what you think of the recent changes that were made to some of the games on the island. We really appreciate your feedback! We believe that every penguin deserves a chance to enjoy Club Penguin in many different ways. With that in mind, we have brought the new Stamp Book to the Island! This is a great way for all penguins to share their accomplishments with their penguin pals! We understand that certain game levels are no longer available for all players. Please keep in mind that members pay each month to receive special features, and these features are our way of saying "Thank You" for supporting Club Penguin.

Without financial support from our members, Club Penguin could not exist for anyone! Though some changes have been made to certain games, we have introduced Stamps as a new feature for all penguins to enjoy. In fact, more than half of the available Stamps can be collected by all penguins! Stamps are a way for penguins to work together and share fun experiences with their buddies. Club Penguin is always introducing new content for everyone to enjoy, so you can be confident that there will always be much more to look forward to for everyone! I hope this helps explain the situation a bit more for you. >>

As you can notice, I high - lighted with red the most important sentences in Club Penguin's response e-mail. Very interesting, right? With this sentence, I understood a little bit more about why Club Penguin created the Memberships. They need our money - help to keep their site on by buying special Memberships! I mean, they make special events "in a way to thank those member people" that help them with the money they pay while getting a Membership. In the e-mail it also says that Club Penguin also thinks in those penguins that can't pay ( or they just don't want to ) a Membership, by giving them free items and some events. And yes, it is true, right? But there is a severe problem that is being presented this last days: Club Penguin Bugs! More than once, member penguins can't access to the site by fault of this bugs, and it seems unfair to them, because it is taking time from enjoying the Membership THEY PAID FOR with real money! Also, right now there are Bug problems with Club Penguin's Nintendo ( DS, Wii, etc ) system! Some penguins can't transfer the coins they win in the game to their online account, which is causing trouble because they also paid money for that. But, guess what? Club Penguin has rised the prices for Club Penguin Memberships for USA and Canada! Here is what Billybob says about:

For the first time since Club Penguin started, we've decided to change the price of new memberships purchased in US and Canada. Starting on July 13th, the new price for a Club Penguin membership will be $7.95 a month, $39.95 for 6 months and $59.95 for 12 months. The new price is only for NEW membership purchases. If you already have a recurring membership, you'll keep paying the old price as long as you stay a member. You'll also be able to use membership cards with the old price if you have them. Ever since we launched Club Penguin, we've released tons of new games, features and special events, and donated millions of dollars to charitable projects to help kids around the globe. The new price will allow us to create even more great content that will make Club Penguin even better. We can't say too much yet, but we have some really exciting new things planned for you in the coming months!

Ummm... well, I think that if Club Penguin will REALLY accomplish what they are saying here, ( create even more great content to penguins ) I think that it is fair. But there is still a doubt: why updating Membership prices??? It doesn't has anything to do with making great content, or it is?!? That is another big question... And can you notice where he says: "You'll keep paying the old price as long as you stay a member"? And can you notice that Club Penguin wants actual - members to pay and pay for more Memberships so they don't pay the worse prices? And can you also notice that they only rise the prices in USA and Canada because they are the most - buying membership countries? That is very disappointing for me... Well, I think that if Club Penguin rise the Membership prices, they should make very AWESOME content for next months. I trust that you will not disappoint more penguins, Club Penguin. Please send me a comment with your opinion about all this. Thanks for reading and see you later! :D

Reviewed by You: Helpful Friends!

Hello everyone! Today Billybob posted in the Club Penguin Community Blog the "Reviewed by You" of this week. Its is named "Helpful Friends" As you may know, we all have friends in Club Penguin and in real life, right? Well, in my opinion, every single friend everyone has must be helpful, because that's what friends do for their own friends. Some of the easiest way to be a helpful friend is to playing with him/her in a game, go to a party of its own, or just have fun with him/her. But even in Club Penguin, we have helped several real - life friends. One good example is the "Coins for Change" event that takes place every year in December, by donating virtual coins to transform them to real ones, so we can help people in need and other causes. Those people in need, though they haven't met that person that donated virtual coins to help him/her, already know he/she is friendly with other people. We have to always be helpful friends with our own friends, trying to make him/her a better person. Now, last week's "Reviewed by You" question was about our first memory about the first time we logged - in Club Penguin. Billybob already choosed an answer, Erica777´s answer was selected! Congratulations! Now, let's read what she says about her first memory in Club Penguin Island:

Hey CP i'm so glad you asked that question. The first time I logged into Club Penguin I was very young. I remember standing in the town just wondering where I should waddle off to first. Suddenly a bright blue penguin waddled up to me and said "hey you new here". I shyly said yeah how did you know. She said I looked confused. I asked where you can get the best refreshments. The blue penguin grinned and said "thats easy it's the coffee shop. When I walked into the coffee shop I knew by all the friendly faces and different people that I was perfectly safe on my new favourite site Club Penguin :D.
P.S. I want to thank BlueJunieB for being the first to add me as a buddy. YOU ROCK

Very nice memory, Erica777! I think that that bright - blue penguin might know you where new in there because when we arrive to Club Penguin for the first time, we don't have wear on, and we don't know where to go first because we don't know anything about all that. But now, Billybob announced that when a new penguin is created, we should go to a special "Welcome" room and receive free welcome - items. There, you can welcome every new penguin! But I certainly don't know if the new penguins can come back to that special room once they leave it... Well, we are always glad to receive new friends, specially me! :) Now, Billybob says to us: Tell us about someone that's been helpful to you, and why you think they should be featured on the blog. Well, that's something difficult... I have so many helpful - friends! Like Loulou11207, Davidhopper, Dark Falkner, Pips4lucy, Sevalbar, JT, Chuckyb13, Monstercjr, Saraapril, Flipper14354, Jasfriend1, and many others :) All those friends helped me on something, like earning new stamps, earning coins, or have fun! What's that special penguin that has been very helpful with you always? Send a comment with your opinion about all this, thanks for reading and see you later in Club Penguin! :D

Club Penguin Bugs: What's happening?

Hello everyone! I'm sorry by not posting these last days, I am having trouble connection with my computer. Well, today I'm going to talk about some unusual things that have been happening last weeks ( or maybe even months ) in Club Penguin. I'm pretty sure that you have already heard more than once the word "bug", right? Yes! In this post I will talk about Club Penguin Bugs. But no those type of bugs that are insects. I mean Club Penguin System's Bugs. To start, what is a system bug? It is a problem that a website, program, archive and things like that have by an internal or external cause. I mean, bugs are problems that can be occasionated by a virus, an error in the system and so on. Club Penguin Bugs are quite different, as you may see. They are some problems in the "Island", like when you can't buy an item, when there is wrong music in a room, when a penguin isn't visible, or even when special items don't work well. Those, and more, are Club Penguin bugs. But as many of you may have noticed, these bugs are being exceeding their capacity these last weeks. Bugs and bugs are appearing each day in Club Penguin, and the question is: What's happening? Well, there are many answers for that question. But one of them is the most logic: the attempt of renewing Club Penguin's website domain. As many of you know, some days ago Disney tried to renew Club Penguin's domain ( which actually is ) But that day something went wrong. And guess what happened? The domain dissapeared! Instead, a merchandise website taked its place! So no penguins could access to the system. I imagine the terror of the Club Penguin Team when this happened :/ Fortunately, the system came back, but for some days there where some penguins that couldn't access to it still. And since that day, many bugs began to appear in the website, like the ones I mentioned at the begging of this post. Here is a list of all the bugs that are being reported to Club Penguin:

- Newspaper Bugs ( in process )
- Nintendo DS Games Bugs ( in alert! )
- Logging - in Bugs ( fixed )
- Registering Bugs ( in process )
- Membership payments Bugs ( fixed )
- Igloo Bugs ( fixed )
- Puffle Adoption Bugs ( fixed )
- Game Bugs ( fixed )
- Welcome items Bugs ( in process )
- And more... :/

So, what's happening? According to some researches I made in the Internet, this should be cause of the attempt of changing the domain. Those hours ( or maybe days ) that Club Penguin's system was down, some of the programs the Club Penguin Team was working at ( this could be fixing, updating or deleting ) went "crazy". This means they where with NO control, and they could be causing several bugs in the system. If you don't understand very well this, I will explain it in other words: While Club Penguin's system was down, many programs may have problems because they where NOT controlling them. This may have caused several problems to many other programs that should be involved within. Did you understand? :) Well, now there are many things to be worried at. One of them are the dissapointment of Club Penguin members, because those moments Club Penguin was down was taking them time to play with their memberships that they paid for with real money. But I think that Club Penguin has already offered an award: they extended the Music Jam party 1 week more! Yay! This should bring more time to penguins to enjoy the Music Jam party more than expected. But, aha! I think the Club Penguin Team must have made this not only for us penguins, for them too! Why? Because it should bring them more time to prepare the Adventure Party! Well, it is not a bad idea to extend the Music Jam party, Billybob :) Now, what do you thinl about all this? Send a comment with your opinion! Thanks for reading and see you later in Club Penguin Island! :D

To report a Bug, go to:


Guess what, penguin friends? I e-mailed the Club Penguin Team ( through ) to know more about Club Penguin Bugs, I mean what can we do to improve the system and avoid bugs, and things like that. Though Club Penguin bugs don't seem to be avoidable, I thought that there has to be something that we can do to improve the system quality, right? But one of the things we can do is reporting the bugs to Club Penguin so they can work on it as soon as possible. Here is what a member of the Club Penguin Team answered to me ( to ) as the response of my e-mail:

<< Thanks for writing in to us here at Club Penguin. It's always great to hear from our penguin buddies... especially particularly inquisitive ones such as yourself! I understand that you're wondering why bugs occur on a site. In this case, I can tell you that bugs and glitches could have many different causes. This is why our tech team is dedicated to looking into the issues that are occurring, trying to discover the cause and actively pursuing a resolution. 

Often, bugs will occur when an update happens on the site. Also, and to answer your second question, we've found that many of our players have found it useful to clear their internet cache when experiencing a bug. Though bugs are unavoidable, this will ensure that everything is loading the best it can. To clear your internet cache, you can follow the steps for your web browser located at this link (perhaps check this over with your parent or guardian): 

Once you have finished clearing your cache, please completely close your web browser to make sure all of the old files are removed. And remember, if you ever notice a bug scuttling around the island, be sure to let us know about it so that we can squish it right away! >>

Thanks for those recommendations! I am sad by reading that bugs are unavoidable in Club Penguin... well, though I think that clearing our cache will not help so much to disappear bugs from our computer.... usually bugs are fault of the website, not of the computer. If you are going to clear your cache, make sure that you don't have very important things saved that could disappear when clearing your computer's cache. Also, I can't still access Club Penguin through my normal computer, and though I cleared my cache, I can't still access to the system. I have to access to the system through other computers that work, because it seems that that bug only affects my computer :/ Well, there's something very right in the e-mail: if you notice of a bug, you must contact Club Penguin Team ( through the link I already added in this post ) so they can fix and squish it as soon as possible, so they don't make any more problem to other penguins. Thanks for reading this and see you later in Club Penguin Island! :D
