I'm On a Panel at RTX!I'm excited to tell y'all that I will be on a panel at RTX. It's called Cultivating a Community. We will be discussing the ins and outs of RT community events. If you've ever wondered what goes into holding successful community events, how to get to know your own local RT community, and possibly growing your own community organization, then this is the event for you. I'm humbled and ecstatic to have been selected to be on this panel as a representative of RvB:TX. My fellow panelists are:

@Caiti from RT OZ & RT Radio
@Newbs from RT MN & Rooster Speak
@Cheshire_Cat from RvBTO & Toronto: Unconventional
@Aidan from RvB:Scotland
@LoZelda from RT Michigan & Community Based Network
(thought I would get in on this tag party with you guys)

It's all going to be moderated by @GB330033 from RT SideQuest, one of the driving forces behind the community event culture. It's on Friday, July 4th at 12pm-1pm.

It's a who's who of community organizers and organizations. I'm really looking forward to it. We're all eager to pool our experience and knowledge to offer our best advice and insight regarding community events and the community in general. There will also be a Q&A, so we will be able to answer any questions y'all might have. So please come see us. For more information, click here. Can't wait to see y'all there.

PS - Shameless plug, but RvB:TX is hosting an RT SideQuest Presents event at RTX as well. It's on Friday from 8-10pm, just blocks away from the convention center. Details and tickets here.

RvBTX Party at RTXYou may have heard of it. If not, let me tell you again. RvBTX is having a party at RTX as part of RT SideQuest presents. Click this link to buy your tickets.

You should come. It's for everybody. Only a 5 minute walk from the convention center. Tickets are only $6.50. Don't know if you can make it? Buy a ticket anyway. Waiting for your next paycheck? That's cool, buy one then. It's so cheap. Have a gift card with only $7 on it? I know what you can do with it.

In all seriousness, I think it'll be a great time. For a long time RvBTX has wanted to put on a chill social event where we can just hang out. You know, enjoy the nightlife with friends close to the convention center. We might even get to see some fireworks. It's going to be fun.

We really lucked out with the venue. We've been working on this for some months now. When we went by Fado and walked around, we knew instantly that it was the right place. We'll be going by there later this month to do a final walkthrough. We really want y'all to come.

Come to Our RvBTX Party at RTXHey guys. I'm tagging you Texas folk to let y'all know about RvBTX's Welcome to Texas event at RTX. It's on Friday, July 4th from 8-10pm, as a part of RTSQ Presents. Ticket's are $6.50. It's at an Irish pub called Fado, literally a 5 minute walk from the convention center. There will be snacks, a raffle, video games, and our own personal bartender (not open bar though). We also have the whole outside area to ourselves. Check it out:

The most fun I've ever had with the RT community has been simply getting together and drinking/eating. So please, come over and hang with us. I'd like to get all the RvBTX people together, as well as some new faces. It's cheap, it's close by, and there shouldn't be anything else going on at that time. It's the biggest thing RvBTX has ever done, so tell/tag your friends. It'll be great, we promise.

@Radius55 @Steffie @legato2d @GB330033 @Arcys @Mikey88 @Ayapa @LanAnh @PyroMasso @MrFusion @LordOwen @Myshu @soundbarrier @Fthreat @craZboy87 @Hotpocket36 @samurairose @kablarkin @agd2i @Caboose502 @red420 @WingRaptor @Arcanon_Noir @dereckc1 @Ratatoskr @aithi @Pulse99 @pinkiepoi @lmcDoctor10 @Evon

RvBTX StuffSo, RvBTX will be turning 4 next month. In case you haven't seen, we're doing a couple things for it.

First, we're having another BBQ potluck in Austin. You should come.

Second, we're having another contest. We're looking for an official RvBTX cocktail. The winner gets a $50 gift card. You can find the details here.

If you're in Austin on the 10th, bring a side and come say hi.

11 Years of Rooster TeethI know I'm preaching to the choir when I say that RT has had an immeasurable impact on my life. But seriously, it has. We've also all heard the stories of others, and how RT has helped them through rough times or even saved their life.

Hell, throw all the feels out the window and you still have over a decade of success and comedy in an environment where most others wither and die within a year or two.

As much I want to write about it all, in encyclopedic proportions, the task is far too daunting. Pleasantly so.

In the words of Jodie Foster:

"No - no words. No words to describe it. Poetry! They should've sent a poet. So beautiful. So beautiful..."

I'm Disappointed in You, InternetHave you seen this?

It's the latest Super Power Beat Down of Captain America vs Master Chief. I talked about it not too long ago. And surprise, surprise...it ended exactly like I called. The CA fanboys dominated the fan vote, and Captain America won.

The comments on this video are full of people calling bullshit (myself included). I know it's a fan vote, and that they have to make the video entertaining, but god help this video doesn't do MC justice. They have a little intro, where they talk about the pros/cons, but it's always so forced and fake. They didn't even talk about a single fact from the Halo novels.

I saw this last night, and no joke, it almost ruined my evening. I shouldn't take it so seriously, but as a gamer and a 10+ year fan of Halo, it doesn't sit well with me.

Fans should not be allowed to vote on things like this. We saw something similar when they voted for Wolverine beating Batman. Fans can't be trusted. It just become a popularity contest. The show already skews toward comic book characters. A video game character doesn't stand a chance. They should just find throw together and impartial panel of industry experts, and have them vote on each winner.

Whew. It feels good to let it out.

My Newest Guilty Internet HabitSubreddits about horrible customers and their stupidity.

Stupid things mechanic see

Tech disasters that tech support people come across

Bad cabling jobs (networking, electrical, etc)

Horror stories from retail employees

Horror stories from tech support workers

Interesting stories from pizza deliverers

All it does is make me mad and annoyed, but man some of these are doozies. If you feel like reading about stupid people, check it out.

AnimeBeen on a real anime kick lately. I love going on binges and then adding them to my list on ANN. I recently finished Attack on Titan and Sword Art Online. I'm also current on Kill la Kill, re-watching the original Fullmetal Alchemist, and working my way through Heaven's Lost Property (I know, I know).

Anybody else watching anime out there? What are you watching? Anime discussion, go!
