New Years Resolution?I hesitate to post this, because I'm not very confident I'll be able to do it, but it's long been my desire to read 52 books in 52 straight weeks. I almost tried it last year, but was talked out of it by a friend. However, I just realized that Griffon and I read a book today (The Missionary Position: Mother Teresa in Theory and Practice), which would theoretically put me ahead of the game if I decided to make it my 2014 resolution... Should I give it a go?
ApologiesIn a recent video, Gavin and I jokingly discussed something called "Connect the Hots". First off, I want to say that we sincerely apologize if we made any of our audience feel uncomfortable. We want to be clear that in no way do we condone following women or men down the street, stalking, or giving unwanted sexual attention to someone. That's not funny and not something anyone should ever do.
We produce over 3 hours of content a week, and sometimes we make mistakes. We have grown our audience because we try not to censor ourselves. We try not to filter our jokes or discussions during videos. When you do that occasionally you are going to say really stupid stuff. That's what happened here, and we're sorry. To make matters worse, sometimes things we say can become amplified and exaggerated in the feedback loop of online comments. We can't and wouldn't try to control free discussion online even when we disagree with it, but we can take responsibility for our own actions and statements. For that reason, we have taken the video offline.
We know that as fans and community members of Rooster Teeth and Achievement Hunter you value our honesty and transparency with you (and we value you as well), that's why we wanted to speak to you directly. We appreciate everyone for voicing their opinion about everything we do, and we are listening. We sincerely regret what was said, and we appreciate your support, loyalty and friendship more than anything.
