  • An Emotional Post (Sorry all)

    2 days ago

    trevordylan

    Good afternoon everyone! (Morning depending on where you are)


    I've been out of college for almost three years now and when people tell you that your twenties are difficult, I will say for me it is generally true. I will say that I have applied for nearly 100 jobs all around the country and not one has asked me for an interview. It's fair to say that I should feel defeated, but I don't. 


    Failure is a part of life and we as artists have to be comfortable with that failure. Success is driven by failure. Even the most successful people have experienced it at least once in their lifetime. I have even been told by my family to give up on my dreams, but my twin brother who has the same passions pushed me to keep moving. I will tell you that his support has meant the world to me.


    I promised myself this year that I would be creative every single day, no matter what. I think that is an achievable goal with the help of my brother and all the other artists around me. 


    Presently we are preparing for a short film that we are shooting in the coming months and I am honored to be the lead actor, writer, social media director, and storyboard artist on the project. It's been an amazing experience so far and I cannot wait to see what crazy stuff lies ahead. I am comfortable with being uncomfortable about the future. The unknown means there are so many possibilities. 


    I even applied to work for the company that has allowed me to host my journal on here. Rooster Teeth is easily one of the most creative communities thanks to all of you. I won't give up on working for such an incredible production company because it's my dream to be a part of this journey with my twin brother. We are collaborators and this is what we live for. 


    Best,


    Trevor Dylan Benoit

  • I've reached that point in my life...

    I'm almost 25. My entire wardrobe is either nice clothes or Rooster Teeth merch. I have an AH tattoo. I watch them daily still, to this day. This company, this family, it's probably the longest running consistent thing in my life and I don't know if I should be happy or proud of that fact.


    All I know is that I'm just happy to be here.

  • A Look In 2017, A Look Out 2018

    1 week ago

    daniel_nye FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold Burnie Coin Club Member

    10 days into the year and I'm already thinking back about the past year.

    Whilst so much awful things went down that year between "leaderships", terrorist attacks, the Vegas shooting, world disasters like hurricanes and other horrible things (Doki Doki Literature Club being another thing thats horrific but at least that had its moments) happening around us whether it effects you or not, we really should consider ourselves lucky when we have amazing or at least good things happen to us.

    The start of this year was not looking good. Me and my (now ex) girlfriend split, LAGC being my last Anime League convention after the news of my good friend Alex B. forced out by the lead of Anime League and Alex telling me what Michael has been up to, and Alex H. told me that she had feelings for me but was stuck in a relationship that she had suffered for being in in the first place. This was a month I refered to at the time as Fucked Febuary. But as with every dark tunnel, there was light at the end of it. Especially since RTXLondon was announced. That was what I needed most. And after some time, Alex H. gained the courage she needed to get out of her other relationship.

    Before you say anything, it was made very aparent to everyone that the other guy she was with really made her depressed and he was just really naive and could not see that the relationship was not working. Im not happy by how this happened but there's no need denying that it just did. In hindsight I do feel like I was pushing her into leaving him but I knew once she was free of him Alex would be much happier, whether she was wanting to be with me afterwards or not. Going by the fact that we are still together is a good indication that what we have works. Alex has easily been not just the best part of last year but the best part of my life. Looking forward to moving in with her once I get a job nearer to her.

    2017 was a year I wanted to go do more things like I got to see Sean Lock AND Game Grumps and Jacksepticeye at the Hammersmith Appollo, I got to see Hans Zimmer at Wembley Arena and I'll never forget that after his first song he said portions of tonights concerts earnings will go to victims of Grenfell tower which happened the day before the concert. So amazing of him to do that. I've always held a strong belief that music could bring world peace if the world would notice it. Or something like that but it was amazing. Oh and last month I finally got to see Gorillaz perform live at the O2. So glad I got to see them after so long being a big fan. The energy in there could power the world.

    Also managed to see The Russel Howard Hour that was good but I really wish I was there for the John Oliver taping, mind would have blown at that taping. I got to meet Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero at my all time favourite cinema too, go see The Room at home then see it witj an audience. Its amazing.

    One thing that was interesting was that being with Alex I got to share my home county and its surrounding areas like London and Brighton with her and she got to do the same with her home county.Its moments like those where you really see what your other half is like. Moreso in London when Alex is taking everything in and Im behind her saying "Mind your step" as she's in front.

    RTXL has been the best event for me. After the MCMLondon in May being just... ok, meeting the people behind my favourite web company, the panels were amazing and were one thing, but the VIP Party made that weekend what it was for me. Getting to meet Miles, Kerry and Gray after the Fan Service stuff Ive sent them since pilot 4 was such a thrill, talking with Burnie about some stuff that is just hearsay at the moment, hearing Joels story about... I think it was getting to bathe a cat that refused to go in the tub, wishing good luck to Chad since after his flight back to US he has to stream RWBYREWIND, and just random talks with Barbara (who is even more angelic in person) Lindsay (who is infectiously happy, though same might be said about many RT people but more noticeable with Lindsay IMO) and Michael (who is just a treat) OH and there was a horror VR game at the back so we got to hear Miles and Ellie do a lets play. Was amazing. And then I see Burnie and Matt for the signing who are amazing. So much so that after the photos, Burnie stopped me and said "You look amazing as Merc Felix, have I given you one of my coins yet?" He did not. He gave me said challenge coin and also told me that "This is for your costume, should also point out that this is one of a few coins for this year that I have left." I left that signing trying not to burst out crying with happiness. Last year I said that I celebrated my 10th year as an ongoing supporter and community member by seing Jon, Jack, Geoff and team RWBY. But that moment meeting Burnie at the session will forever be ingrained in my mind because whilst I was late to RvB by 3 or so years I've always been watching there stuff regularly where as other friends have seen their stuff now and then. The people behind these shows have influenced me, be it the humour, determination, thoughts on certain topics, and being given that coin from Burnie, and think whatever you want about this, but to me it really does feel like OUR love for these people and their work is not left unappreciated.


    That was a majority of the past year roughly summerised but it got me thinking about what I want out of this year.

    Much like some people said in Burnies VLog about resolutions, I dont do them simply because I lose track of the goals I set myself for. That said I do have some that I think can be managable.

    My main goal is to move in with Alex this year but thats dependnt on alot of things culminating in to one but its not impossible by any means. I hope.

    My other goals are to stop snacking and just stick with 3 or 4 meals and drink less cokes and other sugary drinks.

    Another is to try and write more. Ever since I left High Wycombe I feel I've been less creative and that i've lost my passion for making stories and doing properly crafted artwork. Whilst I have noticed that I love editing video more I want to get back into writing. Maybe even try do a stand up routine.

    One other goal I want to work on, but I dont think will go as it should is taking breaks from technology more. Too often do I walk by myself to places with music in my ears. Theres a river not far from me. Why do I not take in the sounds of nature more often?


    So theres my retrospective perspective.

    End.

    Go away.

    Well. I've been an RT fan for about 4-5 years now. I started seriously watching Red vs Blue around season 10, I think. I'm not entirely sure. But I owe a lot to these guys. Rooster Teeth has saved me from a great deal. I love them all with all my heart. The humor and light-heartedness is really life changing. I'v been through 4 years of self loathing, bullying, depression, and a suicide attempt. With the overall theme of life, it's difficult to stay on one topic. But it gets better. Life won't always be horrible. There is always a shining light. Like Rooster Teeth. Genuinely kind people who care about their fanbase. They don't view us as revenue, but people. They care about each of us and I just know they wish they could interact with each and every one of us individually.

    Hey everyone, 


    Happy New year!

    I hope everyone is enjoying celebrating, taking the year in review, or just chilling out. 


    2017 has been a crazy year for me personally; others as well. It was really bad and pretty good. My last journal I talked about it a little bit, but 2017 has been the most important year in my life. 


    2017 has shown and taught me a lot. (I am just going to name 3)

    - You have to cherish the smaller things to appreciate the bigger things in life. 

    - Have true solidarity with being alone.

    - Value those around you. 


    Cheers to 2018, I have no expectations. I am just going to live it the best I can!


    Again, Happy New years to all! 

    <3

  • What Happened to Rooster Teeth?

    I am not sure how journals work, who will read this or how they would even see it, but I felt the need to vent a bit about Rooster Teeth.  While I am somewhat new to the website, I am no where near new to the content that RT has produced.  I was fan way back in 2003 when I was introduced to Red vs Blue by a friend who knew I enjoyed Halo.  The line 'Is it a spider?' was the moment the series got its hooks in me.  I followed the series for years after that, also watching the other short lived RT series like Strangerhood and 1-800-Magi, plus following the regular comics done by Luke McKay that appeared on the old site.  But as I got older, busier and had fewer friends that were interested in the content, I dropped off RvB and RT around series 6.


    Around two years ago I stumbled unto Achievement Hunter without realizing at first it was part of Rooster Teeth but as soon as I heard Geoff's voice, I recognized it as Grif.  Pulled backed into RT content as well as Achievement Hunter, I binge watched tons of content from the years I missed asking myself why I had stopped watching?  I subscribed to the website, bought merch and even got a VIP pass to RTX Austin this past year.  Being a geek and gamer in a smaller community AH particularly made me feel like there were others I could relate to and that understood my sense of humor.  The last few months though, that has changed.


    Somewhere along the line, it feels like the focus of Achievement Hunter and Rooster Teeth has shifted off the content and more to the creators.  Now I love the team behind the shows, like I said in many ways I can related to them, but it has started to feel like some of them view themselves more important than the content they produce.  Either by screaming into a camera, showboating to get attention or otherwise focusing on completely on themselves.  Then there is the matter of content itself that is produced.  More and more of AH content is repeated or recut material.  Be it 'Best of the Month' or stream content that was on YouTube a week before or simply the 'Between the Games'.  I realize producing content is not easy and that it can be a busy workplace.  I tried to maintain a YouTube channel with daily game videos and it is exhausting.  But with nearly 20 people on the AH team it should be more do-able.


    At the end of it I feel conflicted about continuing to support RT and AH.  There are creators on the teams I like and want to support but like the saying goes, it only takes a few bad apples.  These bad apples spoil so much content for me that I stop watching stuff.


    That's it, I am done.  I just needed to vent if only for myself.

  • Merry Christmas, Happy Birthday, What a Decade! A retrospective.

    3 weeks ago

    BricBrac Eagle Scout and Explorer

    First, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanza, Happy Festivus, and anything else!  I hope you had a great one!


    Second, I just noticed I missed my on site birthday which was December 11th.  Ten years ago I joined the site after watching for months first.  Wow.  A whole decade that RT has been a part of my life...  That is pretty significant, at least to me.


    A lot has changed in 10 years-for instance, when I was 16 I had no facial hair but I now have a full beard and sick handle bar mustache.  I've graduated high school, gone to community college, graduated with my Associates there, transferred to another college, made some life long friends, graduated with my Bachelor's there, worked as a camp counselor and program staff at the greatest camp in the world, made friends there who are as close as brothers.  I met my (now) soon to be wife-even though she was dating one of my close friends then-and began a relationship with her after I had graduated the college we had been at.  My brother started high school, graduated, and has moved on to other things.  My sister is graduating high school this year.  I lost my Grandma to heart failure, almost lost my Pap due to other issues, and saw my great uncle pass on.  I lost my cat, but have gained three dogs, one of whom is buried under a blanket at my feet right now.  I've watched friends come and go.  I've grown myself, and learning skills I never thought I would know.  I've become Wilderness First Responder Certified.  I became a youth group leader and have watch my group of guys strengthen and grow physically, mentally, and spiritually.  I went on three mission trips to Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota, leading the youth kids while there.  I've traveled and seen some amazingly beautiful places.  I have camped on the banks of the Rideau River, couch surfed around campus, completed multiple 50 mile canoe trips down the Allegheny River, and more.  I've been a ropes course facilitator, Sportsworks presenter, apartment cleaning and maintenance, pharmacy clerk, janitor, lot attendant, comic artist, writer, computer programmer, and more.  Now I am preparing for my greatest task, becoming a husband.  The Lord has been good to me, and I strive to follow Him and give Him all of the glory in everything I do.


    Through this whole decade RT has been apart of it.  I remember the first RTX, the first Extra Life Stream, the premier of the RWBY Red Trailer, the loss of Monty, when Church turned out to be an AI, the first Gauntlet, Nature Town, the premier of the Drunk Tank, the inklings of the Lazer Team idea, and Adam and Joel's How To's.  I remember all of the studio moves from the Congress office and beyond.  I've grown up with RT.  I don't watch TV except for a few shows (who doesn't love M*A*S*H?), and watch a few show on other streaming services, but largely RT is where I come for my entertainment.  RT shows are my favorite shows (especially when I can identify with David from Camp Camp so much).  RT, you've have been a constant in my life through a lot of changes, making me laugh when I'm down, putting a smile on my face when I couldn't myself.


    RT, you, my family, and God have been the three constants in my life over the past ten years.


    And I'm looking forward finding out what the next 10 years bring.  Merry Christmas, and here's to many more.


    Oh, and have a Happy New Year's!

    So I finally made an account here on the website after a while:) So let me tell you guys a bit about my life. I am a 16 year old currently living in the UK, and I say currently because of what I'm about to tell you.


    My name is Ravi and I am an American/British mixed national. I was born in Michigan in 2001 and between then and 2010 I lived in: Michigan, Oklahoma, Kentucky (twice) and New Jersey. As you probably guess I am well traveled. In 2010 I then moved to France and I lived there until 2013 when I moved to my current home; UK. I am currently a 6th Former doing my A-Levels, the Americans reading this will have no Idea what I am on about :) 


    I found out about Rooster Teeth in 2014 through Achievement Hunter and The Slo-Mo Guys. I then found out about the RT Podcast and On the Spot in 2015 and continued to find more and more amazing content that RT produced. However, yesterday I found the best part of RT; RWBY. I never got into watching those types of shows (anime? Is it called that?) and I am so annoyed that I never got to experience the release of the other volumes with the rest of the community. I admire how Rooster Teeth has grown to be an amazing company over the years, expanding to new more amazing opportunities. So I am excited that I finally found RWBY (I may have binge watched all the volumes in 2 days...) and will be excited with the rest of the community for the release of the rest of Vol 5 episodes. 


    So in February I will be moving to Dallas, this will be very different to any other place I have lived in the USA. Although, this does mean that I will be able to go to RTX which I am very excited for  blaineI hope that I will be able to meet some great people here in the community and maybe even the great Barbra Punkelmen..... Merry Christmas everyone :)


    - Ravi

  • Best Christmas ever || December 13th 2017

    Evv KevinEverett

    Hey Guys, 


    So, recently I had told you guys that I had been accepted to my dream college that had denied me just months ago, but I persisted and got in for next semester. 


    Over the past few days I cannot fathom the amount of love and support I have received. Yesterday afternoon was one of the best days of the year and will be one of the most cherished moments on my life. 

    The past few days I have been getting a lot of love and support from family and friends via social media like instagram and twitter on my acceptance to Emerson and my dedication through the year. 

    Just yesterday Emerson UG tweeted at me welcoming me to the school (and have sent very welcoming emails). That night I had to give a Final speech for my Public speaking class and I absolutely delivered, in my opinion. It was about Suicide Prevention and mental awareness. I gave my personal story about my step brother Erin who committed suicide this October. I also talked about my personal issues with anxiety disorder, depression, Xanax, and I also came out as Bi-Sexual to the classroom. Before this point only one person knew about me being Bi... now I let a whole classroom full of strangers (classmates) know about it. Well, at the end of my speech the auditorium gave me a huge applause. As the class went on and other people gave their speeches they kept referencing me. I was brave last night. I did something I did not think I was going to do, but I got an overwhelming amount of support from my classmates and thanked god because I was thankful and hopefully for my future. 


    Later when I got home from class I opened twitter to see that my Highschool TV studio had given me their best wishes and congratulated me on my acceptance publicly. -- These guys have been a huge inspiration over the year and I would not be pursuing a career in film if I had not taken their class. It moved me a lot because it was the cherry on top of an amazing past few days. 


    -- I made a tweet during that night saying: 

    “How do I feel about 2017? 

    Well, I did it my way.” 

    and linked https://youtu.be/6E2hYDIFDIU Frank Sinatra’s “My Way”. 


    It is true. I did 2017 my way. I persisted through greatness and hardship through the year but at the end of it, I had reached my goal. I also stayed true to myself, which is very important. 


    2017 may have not been the best year of my life, but it is the year where I can say I grew a lot and for that I can say it is the most important year of my life so far.

  • HARD WORK PAYS OFF #HAPPY //December 8th 2017

    Evv KevinEverett

    Hey everyone, 


    I got some amazing news. 

    Over this past year I had been waitlisted for my #1 school of choice (Emerson College) in April. Over the summer I had gotten declined acceptance. Directly afterward I scrambled to decide if I was going to stay here in Massachusetts at Community College or go to LA to go to Columbia College Hollywood.

    I ended up choosing Community College in Boston. I commuted 50 miles a day by car to attend school. For the past 4 months community college has been harder than I thought it would be, but I have good grades at the moment and my finals are next week. 

    Over the past two weeks I put my deposit down for Bridgewater State University. I was planning to go to this school and major in Secondary Education, but something just happened as of yesterday. 


    Yesterday I was filming with some of my really good friends when I received  an email from Emerson College with an update on my status. (I had reapplied for Spring 2018). I opened it while I was with my friends and I GOT ACCEPTED!!! I got accepted into my #1 school that I had been persistent with... It is acclaimed to be the #1 school for Journalism, #9 Film School, and #4 for Career Services in the United States. The school is really important to film makers in East coast because the other big one is NYU. -- Im so excited to have the opportunity to attend this incredible school. 


    I worked so hard and I am beyond proud of myself... I put so much effort into this school.

    After paying customs (the bane of all UK RT fans lives) I got the tshirt I designed and I honestly don't think I could be happier, it printed so well and has such a great impact!

    It's my first time seeing one of my designs printed in real life and I seriously hope I'll get the chance to produce another tshirt for Rooster Teeth (my aim is an Achievement Hunter design next!) 


    ALSO if you head over to the product page you'll see my face!I'm so proud to be representing my art!

  • AGITATED

    Here's a post I just put up on my personal blog that I thought I should post on here, too, because it's relevant:


    "I have recently become a big fan of the YouTube Channel and production company, Rooster Teeth. This came to be after a series of events occurring in the YouTube world that I just happened to be a witness of. Long story short, I was a fan of the YouTube channel SourceFed and when it was shut down in March of this year, I continued to keep up with the hosts on their individual endeavours. Steven Suptic - who I have written about a bunch on this blog - was one of these hosts. His channel led me to FunHaus and FunHaus led me to Achievement Hunter and basically now I'm in deep. Suptic's channel was also picked up by Rooster Teeth so that helped too.


    I'd always known about Rooster Teeth's existence but I never checked them out, thinking their content wasn't something I was into. I was very wrong, obviously.


    Anyway, I bring this up because it is the greatest example of the industry I want to work in. I watch their broadcast team at work and I turn into the damn heart eyes emoji because that's what I want to do and Rooster Teeth shows me that I can do it. 


    I compare myself to the Rooster Teeth staff a lot. The other day I realised Gavin Free started working for Rooster Teeth when he was, like, 20 and I lost my mind. It sent me into an existential spiral where I just asked myself, "What am I doing with my life?!? How do I get hired by Rooster Teeth next year when I turn 20?!?"


    As a serial introspector, I've thought enough about this to know that the trajectory of everyone's life is different. I can compare my life to Gavin's or whoever else all I want but my life is on it's own path and there's no point in getting hung up on people reaching their goals before I do. I try not to get all hung up about it but I dwell on it enough for it to put a fire under my ass. So maybe I won't get hired by a massive production company at 20 but that doesn't mean I'm not going to try at all. It keeps me going.


    That's what is so great about Rooster Teeth to me. I've got an absurd number of people to draw inspiration from. I admire Gavin's work ethic. I am so in awe of Jeremy Dooley and his myriad of talents (host, rapper and author? uh, goals). All the women in the company - Ashley Jenkins, Elyse Willems, Yssa Badiola, Lindsay Jones and so many more - give me the hope that I too can do what they do. 


    Working for Rooster Teeth isn't the goal (though it would be incredible), I just want to be in the industry as soon as possible. That's why this post is titled 'Agitated'. Because I am. Very much so. I just want to do and create and create and create.


    And I am doing and I am creating and I am worried that maybe I'm spreading myself too thin but that's a problem for another time.

    gem_scheltema FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold RTBox reviews each month

    Well hey there! This RT Box took its damn sweet time getting to me from Sydney (landing on Friday and waiting almost a week is terrible postal service). I'm also still having some slight issue with sideways photos, but only some. So, there's that.


    The highlight of November is of course the Rooster Teeth Extra Life stream that raised a massive 1.2 MILLION DOLLARS for the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Once again the community has outdone itself and I'm ecstatic that we will be getting Achievement Hunter the Musical as a thank you. I was able to catch a good chunk of the stream live and enjoyed it immensely (about 12 hours of it; the second hour and then the last half), Michael with Iris was adorable and the Whose Spot is it Anyway segment was pure comedy gold. My internet held out spectacularly. Anyways, if you donated, shout out to you! 


    Getting onto the point, say hello to the 2 SPOOKY themed RT Box. Obviously this was for Halloween, but it's kind of late for that. 2 Spooky is a beloved ritual of the Extra Life stream though, so, let's pretend it makes sense for November.


    Let's take time to appreciate the greeting card that comes to us from Pikachu-spooky-boy Kerry Shawcross (who was sick and didn't get to participate in Extra Life this year, in case you didn't know). There are majestic gravestones that have the Achievement Hunter, Funhaus and ScrewAttack logos (shoutout to Chad, an MVP of the stream). There are also gravestones for Gus, died from grumpiness; Burnie (with a Tesla logo), burned; Barbara, punned to death; Gavin, couldn't be bothered. And as you can see, a fully sick coach and undead horses.

    - one 5 Nights at Rooster Teeth magnet (multicoloured)

    - one RWBY Blake Belladonna Papercraft (black; cat [get it?])

    - one 2 Spooky Skull Blaine pin

    - #9 of 12 of the Rooster Teeth Season 1 Gold Cards, featuring RWBY (about 20% were signed by someone from the CRWBY)

    - one Steam code for a free download of Battlesloths 2025: The Great Pizza Wars; as well as three codes for 50% off the game which I am happy to give to anybody that comments and asks!


    Holy moly, this box is full of RWBY...I LOVE IT!


    The shirt does not have a glow in the dark sticker nor does the card mention it, but it was on RT's instagram story a while ago and it was shown glowing. I tested it and it does indeed glow. As far as I remember the white print [sans the RWBY logo] is glow-enabled. As for the design, this is rad as hell and there's nothing creepier than a Grimm. Well, except for Raven, maybe. This is another lightweight shirt like the last RWBY one.

    And if you weren't satiated by that, take a look at this Roman candle! No, wait, Kerry specifically said it's a candle of Roman, not a Roman candle. Torchwick is [real spoiler if you've not watched Volume 3 of the show] dead but he was also kind of creepy, so that's spooky!

    My mother and sister LOVE this candle scent immensely! I don't know what's with Americans and pumpkin spice, but this is that in a candle. It reminds me of gingerbread, honestly it smells 90% of cinnamon, but it's more pumpkin-ey. Also, great colour, and it looks to be made in Arkansas (I also don't know why this is not pronounced like Kansas with an ar at the beginning). +1 for quality. The label application leaves a tiny something to be desired, but this is neat.

    Five Nights at Rooster Teeth, a play on the cult-popular indie game Five Nights at Freddy's, was an episode of Immersion. Gavin and Michael (and Barb and Lindsay in the FIRST bonus ep) controlled cameras inside the Stage 5 security room, watching evil versions of RT characters such as 'demented' Pongo the puppet (from the RT Short 'Pongo!'), an Ursa Grimm from RWBY, former Achievement Hunter Ray Narvaez Jr's wrestler Mr. Diddlez from the Let's Play of WWE 2K14, and of course a murderous Rooster. 


    2028650-1511418830530-DSC_1189.JPG


    There's a shirt with the same art, if you like it and were unaware, and it's on sale! This is a big magnet, about hand sized, and my hands are not small. It's quite thick, almost 1cm, and the magnet portion of that is about 1/4 of that. This is in the same style as the Michael Jones bottle opener, which I just now realised is also a magnet.


    To go with last month's Yang Papercraft, a little black cat (spoopy!) made her way into this box. Blake the cat Faunus goes great with Yang, because I have to remind you that they're definitely gay, and also, we can forget that nothing bad happened in RWBY ever. Just like with the previous papercraft, you gotta be careful not to rip tabs off. They're quite sturdy, but the little tabs are vulnerable, especially if you're angry like I was when I put it together (unrelated to this). They are cathartic, though. Once again though, an edge was a bit off in the body area and the one of the head tabs doesn't quite fit in its slot. This is a carbon copy of the Yang model, just with the print changed. The picture I got ended up sideways so I'll leave that out.


    "SPOOKY!" - Blaine Gibson  blaine

    This pin is an amazing tribute. The foil trays and the green skull are spot on and I love it. I won't ever look at it without hearing "spooky!". The shiny part is the actual metal part of the pin, with black, white and green enamel accents. Can I say spooky one more time?


    2028650-1511418830534-DSC_1194.JPG


    I will admit, I've been waiting for the RWBY Gold card to show up. It makes sense for it to be in October's box to coincide with Volume 5's premiere, and I did expect RWBY to show up in this box, but I was spoiled. I will mention that this one seems to have less effort put into it than others, as it's just a regular ol' background with the in-show models of the characters instead of special art. Also, the text is pixelated. Anyway, here's the back of the card; I just noticed it says 1/12 instead of 9/12 so maybe they rushed this one. RWBY scores 10 in attack; 4 in colours because that's the joke; 7 in arms...TOO SOON! #LetYangBeHappy

    The description is quite clearly taking the piss. FYI Blake doesn't have a tail because Faunus only have one animal trait. Stop giving her a tail, fandom!


    2028650-1511418830538-DSC_1200.JPG


    And last but not least, there's a free copy of Battlesloths 2025: The Great Pizza Wars on Steam for me. This game is published by Rooster Teeth, so they're handing out 50% off codes! As I mentioned earlier, just comment if you would like a 50% off code. I already used my code, and the others are blanked out to prevent any unauthorised use...actually they weren't when I posted, because I swapped a photo out, so one might be used - but I doubt it. I fixed that up so there may or may not be three, oops! I also still don't think I used my Warhammer code from last year but it might have expired. If anyone wants that I can find it and see if it's still valid.


    2028650-1511434959626-DSC_1204.JPG


    Don't forget you can check out the photos again, any of them, if you want, in my images > RT Box [insert month/year] album.


    And that wraps up the dead body- I mean, this post. To my American friends, I hope you have a lovely holiday season as Thanksgiving is coming up and idk I think there's other things but I'm not sure so I'll be generic. On top of that, who knows whether or not I'll get next month's box before the post office craps out for Xmas, so, well wishings to y'all for that and whatever you celebrate. I'm wearing my Thanksgiving/Christmas themed shirt from last year's box, and it's almost time to get out my ol' Relient K Christmas record to pretend I'm cheerful!


    Let it snow baby, let it reindeer.


    Peace!

  • We Need YOU to save Net Neutrality

    1 month ago

    Xuelder Some Sort of Art Boi

    Guys, this is a very serious issue coming up.  Ignoring 22 MILLION comments and opinion of the American People, Head of the FCC and former Verizon Lawyer Ajit Pai has arbitrarily decided that Net Neutrality has to go. This is unacceptable and we the American people need to do something about it.  


    Here is what, as a lone person, what you can do to help:


    BOYCOTT:


    Many businesses, mostly ISPs and Cell Phone Carriers, are in support of appealing Net Neutrality.  Call them up and tell them you are cancelling your plan in favor of companies that support Net Neutrality.  If your area has a local ISP, a CO-OP ISP, or heck maybe you can get Google FIber, switch to it.  Cancel Hulu, support Netflix; Cancel AT&T or Verizon and switch to T-Mobile, [who's CEO is now a supporter of Net Neutrality](https://www.t-mobile.com/landing/binge-on-letter.html).  Make it hurt where it hurts the most, the corporation's bottom line.


    CONTACT YOUR CONGRESSMAN/WOMAN AND SENATORS:


    Call your local Representative and your state's Senators offices and tell them about your disapproval of this action being taken by the FCC.  Be polite, but stern.  Do not get into a shouting match with an aide, that solves nothing, stay civil.  Use in plain English why net neutrality is bad for you and potentially bad for your business.  Go to their town hall meetings if they still have them.  Write them a letter, or write that letter as an op ed in your local paper, cause apparently they use that as a barometer for issues still.

    If you need help with this use this site: https://www.house.gov/representatives/find-your-representative


    GET ON SOCIAL MEDIA:


    While we still have Net Neutrality, we can still use social media to spread the word about the injustices of them trying to repeal it.  On twitter, use the #NetNeutrality to spread the word.  Get your net friends to share their displeasure by retweeting you and makidng their own tweets.  Also, tag your Congress Persons as well as your Senators', bombard their dashboard with your mighty tweets. While your at it, tag Ajit Pai as well, just so he has a clogged up dashboard as well. Snapchat pictures of Net Neutrality support, do the same on instagram.  Go into a long diatribe in a Facebook wall post.  Blot out the front page of Reddit with Pro Net Neutrality posts and articles.  Do not let this go away.


    PROTESTS:


    Two ways to do this one.  The first is low effort but at least is something, sign a petition on the White House petitions page, in support of Net Neutrality.  All it takes is 100,000 responses before the White House has to respond, and considering we got 22 Million comments to support it, I don't think this should be an issue.  Second is the more traditional picketing kind of protest.  Organize a protest with others outside your congress person's office, but be civil about it.  Do not curse, do not insult, just stand there with signs and come up with catchy pro net neutrality jingles.  If you live in the DC Area, directly protest at the FCC.  I am pretty sure there is already a protest being planned, but its still in the early stages, keep an eye out for that on sites like the Net Neutrality subreddit https://www.reddit.com/r/KeepOurNetFree/


    JUST INFORM PEOPLE:


    Everybody and their mum uses the internet now.  Its Thankisgiving tomorrow, even though the taboo is politics, religion, and sports on family occasions, this is too important for that.  When you bring it up, try to frame it in a way that will affect your relative.  Remind your crazy uncle he still needs an open and fair internet to be allowed to view the president's tweets or read Drudge, or listen to Pandora.


    In conclusion, there is plenty you can do alone to help support the cause.  Real human interaction is the key imo, as apparently just signing a form letter has done nothing so far.  Do not give into despair over this.  Fight for what we all believe in, a fair and open internet.  Protect Net Neutrality people, for us and our posterity.

  • Post RTX London & Japan

    2 months ago

    AlintheaYoh FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold RTX London Guardian

    Well, I'm certainly late posting this, due to as soon as RTX was done on the Sunday, I flew to Japan two days after. 


    I've finally found time to sit down and write about the epic even that was RTX London. I was fortunate enough to be selected as a Guardian and I was assigned to the Signatures team. Firstly, I couldn't have been luckier to have such an amazing team (sorry everyone else, but Sigs FTW). We all gelled instantly and worked together extremely well. 


    The first session on the Saturday, in my queue, was Barbara and Lindsey. I remember thinking it was so cool seeing them in person and everything being so surreal, but at the same time, I was not there to see them, I was there for the attendees. I allowed myself a little excitement moment inside for a few seconds, then back to being professional and there for the fans. This session lasted AGES because, and I'm sorry if they see this, they don't stop talking! It isn't a bad thing for the fans and the talent, but when we have a schedule to keep, they need to talk faster! :P However, running over wasn't a problem in this instance. 


    The day carried on, getting people hyped up, including making sure everyone had their tickets out, ready to give to me once they were at the front of the queue, which meant I was the one jumping up and down, getting people to put their tickets in the air and wave them around. It was pretty entertaining and, even though I looked like an idiot, people told me after that it helped them get over their nerves and calmed them down, which was the most rewarding thing about the entire event. After people told me that, I made it my mission to make sure people were calm, had ideas of what they wanted to talk about/ask their selected staff and to take as many pictures as I could of them interacting, so they could remember it to the fullest extent. 


    I think it was honestly more fun that if I were waiting to meet the talent, which is nothing against them, but seeing peoples faces light up (some even crying) with joy at meeting their idols, was reward enough. 


    I've worked many cons and events like this before and I have to say, this was the most fun I've had; it totally didn't feel like work. I think my team leads (Sole and Pockets) were incredible. The head guardians Arileya and Jason did themselves proud in organizing everything running up to the event and during. I have extreme respect for them and would happily help them out if they ever needed it. If there is another RTX London, I would 100% apply to be a guardian again. I'll apply every time there is one, even if I don't get selected. 


    I must stress to hopeful new Guardians, it is an extreme amount of work. I paint a pretty picture of fun and happiness, which is all true, but there is a lot of work included in that. I barely sat down both days, I never stopped helping attendees and hardly interacted with the talent, but that all pails in comparison to what I got out from it. As I said, being able to help everyone was the best. 


    RTX London was, in my eyes, an incredible success. Yes, there were some teething problems, but it was the first year and I think the mass majority had the time of their life. You can't please everyone, but you can do your damnest to try.


    If any attendees remember me, or if I helped you in anyway, let me know! I'd be great to hear how the rest of your event went!


    Thank you RT for the event and allowing me to meet so many amazing people and make new friends. I hope to be apart of such an event soon. Even if I don't get picked, I'll be there attending!!!


    Ps. JAPAN WAS EPIC I MISS IT ALREADY.

    Chynna

    Well, it seems that in the short amount of time I have been alive that I have experienced more than some individuals. I found out on Tuesday, May 10 that I have MULTIPLE cysts on my kidneys. It is an odd thing for a teenager to develop these cysts when they are most commonly found in 50 year olds. They doctors said that I have to follow up so the cysts can be watched . This medical finding coupled with a recent sexual assault has been making my life a little harder, but I am learning quickly that I have the strength to push forward. I am receiving all the help and support from my family and close friends that I could ever need. On a much happier note, a friend and I are going to be starting a big project for a contest that Panic! At The Disco is holding. We have to create a music video for their song "Victorious" and submit it by July 11th. Thank you to everyone at Rooster Teeth for inspiring me to get into the film industry and a big thank you to Josh Flanagan.

    Lets start off with the sad news. my dog lola sadly, passed away almost 4 months ago. She was the cutest and sweetest dog that you could have. I had her since i was like 17 or 18. Its been kinda hard on us and a little harder on our other dog maddie. I meant to update here a while ago, but i couldnt because i was still dealing with her passing. Things are okay and are slowly getting better though. Click the link below to see her

  • RT Box September 2017 Impressions

    2 months ago

    gem_scheltema FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold RTBox reviews each month

    Well, hi there! This one took awhile, but it did make it before the end of the month. I'm going to apologise in advance for all my photos being sideways but I can't seem to fix that issue. In addition to things I didn't do right, I totally forgot that last month marked a whole year of RT Boxes for me. Time flies!


    Let me start off by saying that I recently used my Burnie Burns packing cubes (from way back when) and my AHWU repair kit (from last box) on my latest trip. The packing cubes are very handy indeed, and the first aid kit was helpful to take care of my busted toe when I was short on supplies. Oh, and the AH Cocktail shaker is pretty fun to use now that Spring has sprung. A+ to the RT Boxes of the past.


    Moving on to the present, this month's RT Box is coming at you from the man, the legend, Joel Heyman! joel

    I think it's GOLD themed, which is ironic, but it definitely suits Joel's interests. He's giving us a quarterly portfolio report, and I think you might be interested in the gold-based assets I've just acquired.


    Complete with their worth, the gold I scored looks something like this:

    - one Heyman Holdings, Inc. (SHRT) ↑ 9.16% ......... shirt (black [and gold])

    - one RWBY Papercraft, LTD. (RWBY) ↑ 0.04% ....... Papercraft kit of RWBY (Yellow [Yang])

    - one Golden Gus Beverages (GUS) ↑ 3.14% ......... Golden Gus silipint (black [and gold])

    - one Monarch Laboratories (KING) ↑ 6.66% ........... Mad King Ryan pin (gold)

    - one Funhaus Group (FNHS) ↑ 0.69% .................... Funhaus license plate (white)

    - three The Ramsey Corportation (GRIF) ↑ 0.22% ... Geoff stickers (black [and gold])

    - #8 of 12 of the Season 1 Rooster Teeth Gold Cards featuring Let's Play


    Right off the bat, Joel's throwing down some intense shit. He hasn't slept in 79 hours and also blacked out the other day and established a financial consulting firm. Heyman and Co. recommend you buy gold. Also, nice toweryou got there. Shout out to the dude that cosplayed it at RTX London and got signed by Joel! This is a nice design, very eye catching. This one's a lightweight material, good for me.


    2028650-1508829543903-DSC_1162.JPG


    Time for another obscure RWBY item. I present to you, a square Yang I built all by myself. Yang is yellow, and so is gold.


    2028650-1508829543899-DSC_1154.JPG


    I unfortunately ripped off a tab on one of the arms but managed to fix it with a bit of tape. The construction of the body seems a bit odd in one place but the whole thing is pretty well made, with sturdy 'paper'. Insert joke here about how inaccurate this model of Yang is now.


    I've been blessed (or cursed, as my sister thought) with another cup. Remember the Golden Gus from On The Spot? Now he's on a cup. Silipints are much less expensive to ship than a gold pint glass, so this is what we got. Silipints are also pretty pricy (for a cup) so it's nice to see something other than the usual plastic.


    2028650-1508829543899-DSC_1156.JPG


    Getting sick of the sideways images? I AM!


    Or how about X-Ray & Vav? Remember that one? Mad King Ryan makes his RT Box debut in GOLD! It's a King pin! Get it? It's shiny like his golden crown.


    2028650-1508829543903-DSC_1158.JPG


    You probably haven't forgotten about ol' Funhaus over in the Golden state, California. This is a golden state plate. Fun. It's metal, maybe tin, I can't be sure. It's got nice embossed letters and the lettering is top notch.


    2028650-1508829543895-DSC_1152.JPG


    What's that, Joel? You had a dream about a puppy? And it told you that people like the Geoff Ramsey shirt designs? They do. And Joel likes stickers, and puppies. Pat the dream puppy. Pat these three Geoff stickers.


    2028650-1508829543903-DSC_1161.JPG 

    Grif is also orange, I believe. Orange is kind of like gold.


    Last but not least, #8 of 12 of the Season 1 Rooster Teeth Gold Cards. This month's card features Let's Play, with 20% of them being signed by members of the frankly, huge, Let's Play family. I managed to get none of them to sign mine. Take a look at this old school Bejewled design - none of that Candy Crush nonsense. Let's Play scores a nasty 0 on friendship; an abismal 1 on collaboration...and a whopping 80085 on NSFW. Somehow, I don't think that even covers it.

    2028650-1508829543903-DSC_1159.JPG

    With that, I bring you to the end of my portfolio report. Gold is abundant in this box and I'm all the richer for it! Except that I'm not, and I'm actually poorer.


    Don't forget you can check out the photos again, any of them, if you want, in my images > RT Box [insert month/year] album.


    Get some sleep, Joel. Pat the dream puppy.


    ZZZZZzzzzzzz.
