      I made things!

      1 year ago

      I was listening to "I Burn" by @Williams (Which, by the way, is a kickass piece of music. Well done, Jeff) when I noticed that the album artwork would make a great wallpaper for my phone. So, that's what I did. I don't have much photo editing ability, but I think these turned out nicely. I take no ownership of the original artwork. I just made them more appropriate for use as a wallpaper on an iPhone.

      This one comes from "I Burn"

      What do you think? If I find an opportunity, I might do more for characters like Torchwick or Jean.

      Those of you who met me at RTX probably know that I won a kickass poster made by @trojanrabbit at the RT SideQuest charity auction. After getting it signed by every RT Staff member I could find at RTX, including @Burnie , @Gus , @Barbara, and more, I took it to the frame shop. and this is the result.

      One week later...

      2 years ago

      Hey RTX was last week! Perhaps you were there, perhaps you weren't. Either way, I hope you had a fantastic weekend. I certainly did. Now let's get down to business and discuss what the heck I did that weekend.

      I arrived in Austin on July 3rd, and didn't really do much that day except get my badge, shirt, and check in to my hotel room. There. That day was easy. Let's see how short we can keep the others.

      The 4th was the most fun day I had in Austin. After an orientation for Guardians at 1000, the RT Museum guardians Radius55, MootPoint, Flats, dlmcrae, dmdfire_, jrheikkenen, iKenn, Krispy, popfizz, and myself set up the museum with assistance from Brandon and Chris. Following that, I got to attend the SideQuest Charity Auction, where I got to meet lots of interesting people. I sat down at a Cards Against Humanity game that was about halfway done, and almost immediately racked up 4 black cards when we were playing to 5. I didn't win, but I had the luxury of meeting @DiMono, who, unsurprisingly, looks nothing like his avatar smiley1.gif . To end the charity auction, I won a fantastic, one-of-a-kind piece of art created by @trojanrabbit . Both of us are pictured below with the unsigned poster smiley13.gif

      Sib88851e4def5af44d.jpg

      And that sounds like a great place to begin the adventures of Friday, July 5th. We reported to the convention center at about 0700, and used our time until noon to make final changes to the layout of the museum. I was also able to get a few signatures for my new-found poster before the hall opened. Once the hall was open, I spent a lot of time at the Zombie Hunt exhibit, where you got to use a Nerf gun to fire at a zombified mannequin Kara, so if you passed through that part, you most definitely saw me. On Friday, I got to see the RT Series panel, which was a great opportunity to see Matt and Chris and Brandon talk about the past and future of RT live action production.

      Saturday and Sunday went much the same as Friday. I spent almost all of my time during the event working as the person who either pushed the zombie cart, or reloaded Nerf guns, or introduced people to the zombie hunt and told them how it worked. I was able to see the 343 Industries panel on Saturday and the Live Podcast panel on Sunday. Both of those panels were fantastic. On Saturday night, I participated in the SideQuest Barlympics offsite event for those who didn't want to go to Buffalo Billiards. We played CTF in a park somewhere in Austin, and got utterly destroyed by @Caleb and the rest of Blue Team in a 0-3 defeat. I also got injured, and one week later, my arm is still sore. Hopefully that heals soon, or I might have to go see a doctor. Caleb, if you're reading this, it was a pleasure to play against you. Well done, and good game smiley1.gif .

      To wrap up Sunday, I ate dinner at PF Changs with several awesome people including @jrheikkenen , @libc , @dapple_apple , @Desayjiin , and @dlmcrae . We had wonderful nerdy discussion and got to eat well as we celebrated the end of RTX.

      If you've read all the way to the end of this journal, I salute you. There's a lot I left out, but if I had typed it all out, I wouldn't leave my chair for a few days. To conclude, I'd like to thank all the guardians who worked alongside me to make the event run as smoothly as possible. But 300 guardians, even with awesome team leads like @Radius55 , cannot run a convention. For that, I have to thank @Barbara , @Gus , @SailorTweek, and @sirNARVY for working harder than any of the other guardians. I could get loquacious, but I'll keep it short and just say
      tumblr_mabftbrOVp1qffn84.gif


      And then I flew home on FUNDAY MONDAY!

      All in all, I spent a lot of money to go to RTX. I spent a lot of time to work the event instead of attend it as a fan, and I spent a lot of effort making the event as fun as I could make it for those with whom I interacted. All of those things were spent to get something in return; one of the best weekends I could have asked for. I met friends, made friends, worked my tail off, had fun, laughed, cried(not really), bleed, met RT's Cast and Crew, and had an absolute blast.

      And that's it. I'm signing off smiley13.gif

      Pre-RTX update! (3rd time's a charm!)

      2 years ago

      Accidentally closing the tab, and losing connection to the server have made me type this journal 3 times now...
      tumblr_inline_mm5pc1zmdi1qz4rgp.gif

      I haven't posted a journal in a while, so this one's going to be a long one. Thank you in advance for your patience smiley13.gif

      First, I recently got back from a trip to Burkina Faso, Africa with some other U.S. Army Cadets. For the all of you who just asked yourselves "Burkina what?," It's here:

      uv_large_locator.gif

      Our primary mission was to help the Cadets of Burkina Faso's military academy practice their English. Surprisingly, their English skills are actually very good. Most of them haven't practiced English since they were 15-16, and they're all between 24 and 30 now. One of the reasons for this is the amount of American music and film they consume. Combined with French subtitles, they pick up a lot.

      Also, here are my favorite pictures I took while there:

      This one's spelled with the empty water bottles we saved.

      And I got to represent Commander Shepard and Rooster Teeth while in Africa (It's hard to see the N7, but it's there =)
      1000884_10201445337081348_956285024_n.jp

      Holy crap! I leave for RTX in 9 days!!!
      tumblr_mab66ptx8T1qffn84.gif
      If you want to see me, I'll be working at the Immersion Museum, but I'll likely have some time on the floor as well. In addition, I'm also attending the SIdeQuest Barlympics and the Charity Auction. I'm super stoked for those events and I'm looking forward to meeting new people from this great website.

      Nothing else new here, just playing Magic and StarCraft to pass the time. If you're going to RTX, I hope to meet you there, and if not, I wish you luck with attending next year. Hopefully you'll be able to keep up with the live stream of the event.

      Grif can travel really quickly.

      2 years ago

      I was watching Season 1, Episode 1 of RvB, and I noticed something peculiar about Grif's placement in his first lines.

      Here, you see Grif at 13 seconds into the episode:
      Sib8885187e49a1245a.jpg

      Here, you see Grif at 26 seconds into the episode:
      Sib8885187e519b5bdf.jpg

      Notice anything? The backdrops for their locations are different. So different, in fact, that when Grif first appears at 13 seconds, it looks like he's on blue base.

      One piece of evidence to suggest this is in the terrain. Red base on Blood Gulch has a shady hill behind it. That hill is definitely seen in the 26 second shot, but not in the 13 second shot. The terrain in the 13 second shot is flat and sunny, just like the area behind blue base.

      More evidence can be found in the trapezoidal shapes on top of each base. The designs on them are the color of the team that owns that base. If you look at the first image again, the design is clearly blue, while the design in the second picture is clearly red.

      There's no way I'm the first person to notice this. Am I?

      Today is April 16, 2013

      2 years ago

      That normally wouldn't be a very exciting fact. It's a Tuesday, and final exams are breathing down my neck again. But that date becomes a lot more relevant when you look at April 16, 2009, the day I signed up for this site.

      That would make today the four year anniversary of my existence on roosterteeth.com!

      tumblr_inline_ml9tmasBG61qz4rgp.gif

      Yes, Gavin. I'm serious.

      I don't even want to think about all the time I've spent listening to all the podcasts, watching all the episodes of RvB and keeping up with almost all the other Rooster Teeth productions, Sure, that time could have been used for something more productive than staring at a screen watching the work that Burnie, Matt, Geoff, Joel, Gus, and the rest of the crew put together, but that time's gone now, so there's not much I can do about it.

      tumblr_m2drfkaUm11r4y1nd.gif

      So thank you, Roosterteeth. Your content's made me laugh, cry, and analyze more than I'd like to admit. It's been a great four years. Here's to another four!

      tumblr_mde95apQNz1qffn84.gif

      And you, the lovely individual who is currently reading this, thank you. You're awesome. Let's have a party, shall we?

        It would have felt incomplete without both you and Chris signing it. You two worked your tails off throughout this event, and you wore staff badges, and you're so involved in this community, you might as well be a staffer.

        When it gets back from the frame shop, I'll send you a picture smiley1.gif

      Exactly, haha I love this graph. When Burnie talks about the Imperial system better than the Metric I seriously get confused. The Metric system deals with lower numbers and is easer to understand. This put things into perspective and deals with less decimals.

      Celsius. I don't really understand Fahrenheit. I get that it adjusted to what the human body can survive in but Celsius just seems easier to comprehend.
