      Belated Birthday and 4 Years

      3 weeks ago

      First off, happy belated birthday to Rooster Teeth! 13 years is quite an accomplishment! Some things will happen to your body that are new and weird. Don't be scared, this is all a natural process. We'll get to the birds and the bees later.


      But seriously, bravo! It's crazy to think that next year, RT will have been around for half of my lifetime. I'm sure that number will just keep growing, as there is no sign of slowing based off of the new shows they are preparing for us later this year!


      I was going to write a journal on the actual birthday, but I figured I would hold off so I can cram it together with another special day (at least for me).


      Today is my 4 year anniversary in the RT Community!


      http://gifsec.com/wp-content/uploads/GIF/2014/07/champagne-celebration-gif.gif


      I guess this would also be my super golden anniversary too? The 4th day of the 4th month? In these 4 years, a lot of things have happened for me. Some not what I planned, and others that are awesome. But, no matter what, I always have the RT Community with me every step of the way.


      I can't single out any moment for me as the highlight of my RT experience. So, I will name a few that can rank up there with each other.


      - Going to 2 RTXs as an attendee

      - Being a Guardian for last year's RTX, and soon to be this year as well

      - Going to RTX Sidequest for soon to be 3 years

      - Showing Jen Brown, Kathleen, and Arryn drawings that I made of their characters

      - Being a part of the OCC forum thread

      - Creating the Player 4 Podcast with my closest friends, @Shagrazir and @JDunlap (over 1 year and still going strong!)

      - Saw Lazer Team in theaters

      - Met up with peeps from The Midwesterners group to see a Cardinals game.


      I'm sure there are so many more that I could put down, but this list would never end then. Thank you to RT and the Community for 4 wonderful years! You guys are so amazing! I'm happy to have so many people that I can call my friends! I can't wait to see what else the future has in store for us! #RT13

      Podcast Shirt!

      2 months ago

      For a while now, the Player 4 Podcast has been teasing the idea of putting out shirts related to our content. Well, this past Wednesday it has become a physical reality! We have put out our first shirt on TeePublic called: The Podcast Equation! (link takes you to the page)


      The Podcast Equation!

      There are several colors to choose from. So you aren't stuck with only one option. Plus, right now the regular t-shirt is even on sale! Though it probably won't be for long.


      I'm super excited about this! Especially because we just had our 1 year anniversary of the podcast releasing. So what better way to commemorate it? Look forward to more designs in the future!

      1 year of Player 4 Podcast!

      2 months ago

      Exactly 1 year ago today, the first episode of the Player 4 Podcast was released (We never speak of Episode 0!). It has been quite a ride, and I am honored to have gotten to embrace the tangent with @JDunlap and @Shagrazir through it all! Thank you to all of our guests for coming on to the podcast and putting up with us! Thank you to our friends and followers for supporting us! I'm not sure why you would put yourself through our shenanigans, but we really appreciate it!


      In honor of our 1 year anniversary, we are having a livestream of this week's episode (Ep 53). We will be livestreaming from twitch.tv/p4podcast tonight (Wed 2/10) at 8:30pm est/7:30 pm cst. However, feel free to join early for the preshow at 8pm est/7pm cst. Come join the festivities! We may laugh, we may cry. Perhaps Tristan will be wrong about something for once?


      We hope you join us for this awesome milestone! Thank you again for an amazing year! We can't wait to see what Year 2 has in store for us!!!! <3

      That moment you realized the Universe wants you to be single forever...

      2 months ago

      I'm terrible at talking with the ladies. I have no game whatsoever. So I've tried online dating a bit now, and even gone to the likes of Tinder (because, at this point, why not?). I think everybody understands how Tinder works, so I won't go into it much. But, basically when you match with someone, they go to a screen where all of your matches go so you can chat with them. I got a match last night, and I was going to try to strike up a conversation. I went into the app and went to the match screen. All it did was spin and say "loading your matches". It was just a continuous cycle of that. Okay Tinder. I only have one match, you don't have to really do much loading.... It's still doing that the next day. I even went to their support for help. Of course all they tell me is to logout and back in and/or force quit the app and start it again. Do you really think I didn't do that? But I did those actions again anyways, along with uninstalling and downloading the app again. Still nothing. It has to be a bad glitch because I'm pretty sure it was doing it even before I had a match. But, when I first got the app it was working fine. Alright, I got the hint....


      Hey Universe, I think I got the freakin' message!!!!!

      BREAKING NEWS!!!!!!!

      3 months ago

      We interrupt your regularly scheduled notification perusal to warn you that......


      I AM A GUARDIAN AGAIN!


      I am very thankful to have another opportunity to help the company and community that I love so much!


      I can't wait to work again with the people from last year as well as the new Guardians. Now, along with wanting to make RTX an amazing time for the attendees again, I need to make sure that the experience for first-time Guardians will be just as good for them! The same way the veteran Guardians did for me! Let's kick ass brothers and sisters!


      To those who applied but were not accepted: Don't hang your head. It makes me so proud seeing how many people are willing to volunteer their time for RTX. Rejection does not mean you shouldn't apply next year. Keep trying! That dedication and resolve will pay off in the end.


      With that said, we now return you to your journal surfing already in progress.

      Hello fellow Missourian Guardian! Saw you post in the Guardian BAR, thought I'd introduce myself. I'm from the better side of the state. smiley1.gif

      • kaosblack21 RTX Guardian v2.0

        1 year ago

        Well, I went to KU for 5 years, and I visit a friend who lives in KC from time to time. So I've been able to compare KC to STL. I just felt there were more places to go to, really good food/beer joints, etc. in KC than STL. Seriously, how awesome would it be to have an RTKC group?

        Alright, you have hockey. So that's a start. But KC needs to get an NHL-level team!

        Wow, I was being sarcastic but okay! We have the Missouri Mavericks, and they have a pretty good turnout at games too!

        Greetings my 'State Sister'! smiley8.gif I always love finding other Missourians that love RT. Plus, now we are Guardians! So we must be Super Best Friends, right?

        I agree you are on the better side, EXCEPT for the fact that there's no hockey. Love my Blues hockey! But if I got offered a job in KC, I would take it in a heartbeat! smiley0.gif

        Thank you! lol It's unfortunate that someone already has the name Caboose on here. And although the day wasn't caboose filled in the sense that I wasn't surrounded by butts, the fact that I am Caboose evened it out on technicality. One day I'll have a Sheila!

      ONE: Thank you for the befriending of my people, which includes myself and I alone.
      TWO: You are totes awesome simply because you are totes awesome and well, being totes awesome deserves totes awards. Take my gratitude and and love. *throws love at you*
      THREE: I am watching you too. So don't mess up, or else. DUNDUNDUN.
      FOUR: I'm unsure of why I am writing this entirely incorrectly but I'm too lazy to go back and fix it now.
      FIVE: Everybody in the car so come on let's ride!
      SIX: Is not an okay number without 9 after it.
      SEVEN: Maybe I should take this to ten?
      EIGHT: Dude, you live in MO, how are we just becoming friends?!
      NINE: We should be rivals though... since I live in KS and well, Tigers and Jayhawks simply cannot just be friends. HOWEVER, by the sounds of it, you support Jayhawks, so I shall support this friendship.
      TEN: Hey look, number ten!! Oh yeah, my name is Ashley... if you cannot read... then again, if you cannot read, then you obviously cannot read all of this and well, my telling you of this name that I hold is rather pointless.


      P.S. I like your sunglasses. smiley13.gif

      • kaosblack21 RTX Guardian v2.0

        ONE: Thank you for accepting my befriending contract. I'm sure you realize it's binding (you did read the fine print, right?).
        TWO: *catches love* Hmmmmm..... So this must be how the Tin Man felt at the end of the Wizard of Oz. Wait.... Does that mean you're a wizard? smiley11.gif
        THREE: Crap, that means I actually have to start putting effort into the stuff I post! That goes double for you!
        i-m-watching-you-o.gif
        FOUR: Just let it happen, don't question it. I'm proud to see your inner Grif show up. smiley0.gif
        FIVE: There's only one thing wrong with that song. There's no Ashley!
        SIX: *mindblown* How did you know what I was thinking!?!?! It's still a sex thing!
        SEVEN: This one goes to eleven...
        EIGHT: I have a theory that there's some mystical powers that tried to keep us and all the other MO and KS people apart. But our totes awesomeness was strong enough to break the barrier.
        NINE: I live in MO, but I went to KU for school. I'm a true Jayhawk. The only reason I can live with all of the Tiger crap here is because I had to grow up with it and my toleration is high now.
        TEN: I actually didn't read any of what you wrote. I just took a wild guess that you wrote some random list of ten things. So this reply might be completely unrelated to anything you said if I got it wrong. Oh, I'm Alex too smiley8.gif
        ELEVEN: I think you were my 117th friend. So that makes you my Master Chief. smiley12.gifsmiley12.gifsmiley12.gif

        P.S.- They are pretty badass right? smiley8.gif Though I don't think they can beat out your awesome kiddy shades in your one photo. Those are just way too rad!

        The Alamo Drafthouse? You should totally do it! I went to see Master Pancake Theater do Independence Day last time. Since they probably do that every year, I might have to go see something else next year.

      • JakeHCoker

        2 years ago

        Yeah I'm in the same boat there. Hopefully I'll be able to finally go with everyone to the Drafthouse!

      • kaosblack21 RTX Guardian v2.0

        2 years ago

        I forgot about the SideQuest stuff. I want to do the Barlympics or whatever it is called. The auction will have to wait. When I end up going to that, I want to actually end up getting something, and I just don't have the money to do that right now.

      • JakeHCoker

        2 years ago

        Lol yeah I'm still missing Joel and Matt from my first 360, so I get ya there. Hopefully I'll be able to afford some of those SideQuest activities next year and really get to see everyone else too.

      • kaosblack21 RTX Guardian v2.0

        2 years ago

        Oh yeah lol. Actually, I was told at RTX by people that they really couldn't tell what was happening in my profile pic. So I ended up changing it a few times before I finally settled on the one I have now. haha! At some point, I might have to commission someone to do another profile pic for me. I just want a pic that I can stick with and everyone can recognize in the future like Zack or Dix.

        I appreciate that, but you don't really have to go to those lengths. My situation is only temporary, so I'll be able to see at some point. Also, I may not be able to give any recommendations out for new and future anime, I will always be happy to throw any recommendations out for past anime. I watched quite a bit for 5 years before this past year.

        That was a big regret for me too. I blame it on being my first RTX/convention. It was all new to me, and I wanted to see as much as I could see. Plus first time I was in the same vicinity of the RT staff. So I will admit I was a little more starstruck than I should have been. Next year, I do plan on still going for those signatures (gotta complete my box set!), but I will focus mostly on the community. Hang out with my friends more, and meet new people too! My friends on here pretty much doubled because of pre-RTX. I want to attempt that again, but follow through with it at the actual RTX next year!

      • JakeHCoker

        2 years ago

        Same here! I still remember that crazy picture you had with the furry hat and toilet paper leaf blower you had as your profile pic. Maybe by the time RTX2014 rolls around I'll be able to find a decent translation of the movie and give you a flashdrive or something. I'm kinda sad that I didn't meet as many people as I'd planned to last year, but next RTX I'm making it a much bigger priority.

      • kaosblack21 RTX Guardian v2.0

        2 years ago

        Thanks! Yeah I definitely plan to go next year and pretty much every year after that! We should really plan to meet up. I remember you were one of the people on here I wanted to meet, but never got a chance to.

      • JakeHCoker

        2 years ago

        Haha well if I find anything good I'll let you know! You planning on going to next year's RTX right?

      • kaosblack21 RTX Guardian v2.0

        2 years ago

        Really? I'll have to remember that. I've kind of been out of the loop anime-wise for over a year now since my internet doesn't do well with downloading or streaming unless it's on Hulu for some reason. I might have to make you my information broker for anime! smiley8.gif Then, I'll know what to watch in the future.

      • JakeHCoker

        2 years ago

        Yeah I felt the same way. I'd watch maybe an episode a day until I got to about the last 5 which I watched all at once.

        Apparently they made a movie for it last August, but I haven't seen any translations for it yet. I think it's supposed to be from Menma's point of view.

      • kaosblack21 RTX Guardian v2.0

        2 years ago

        Haha, I tried to tell you. Major tear-jerker. Although I was the same when I finished it too. When I first started watching it, I wasn't expecting much. It was pretty low on my list. By the end of the season, it was at the top. I think it is still in my top 10.
