      I went to the dump here in Austin with Geoff the other day. First of all, let me say that he made the dump out to be a lot more glamorous than it really was. Anyway, in the process of driving around in the dump I managed to puncture one of my truck's tires with a screw. So, as a result, I've been sitting here at the place I bought my tires at all morning waiting for my stupid flat to get fixed. There is really no point to this post, I'm really just testing if I can make journal posts from my cell phone (and I am so fucking bored).

    • Early mornings and I Love Bees

      13 years ago

      gus Elite Staff

      I can't believe I am up before noon on a Saturday. We are getting to work extra early today and we have a long day of shooting video ahead of us. Luckily I've got some Krispy Kreme and coffee to help try and jumpstart my body.

      I meant to write something about this the other night, but I forgot. On Wednesday I read on Gamespot that Microsoft was holding four I Love Bees wrap up events around the country. The four events were at San Francisco, Chicago, New York and Austin. Since I live in Austin and the event was at the Drafthouse, I decided to go check it out. It was a pretty cool event where they wrapped up the I Love Bees storyline and then let everyone play some system link games of Halo 2. The best part was that they were letting people play on Live against the other theatres around the country on the movie screen. The event lasted three hours and was fun (even though they wouldn't let us play all of the maps). Just a couple more days till Nov. 9th.

    • Server upgrade

      We just added some more RAM to the database server running this site. It now has 5GB of RAM. I ordered the memory over a week ago and requested overnight shipping and the memory just got to the facility where the server is yesterday.

      Apparently DHL is too dumb to find an address in Sacramento and too dumb to call me and tell me they are lost. I called them numerous times explaining what the address was and they still couldn't get it straight. I am very frustrated with them right now since the overnight shipping I paid for didn't quite pan out.

      I'm finally back in Austin with no travel plans in the foreseable future (thank god). Now I can work on the mountain of email waiting for me. Anyway, the taping of Unscrewed went well yesterday even though the car that was supposed to pick us up was 45 minutes late and we barely made it to the studio on time (sidenote, the makeup person said she only had to lightly powder me because my face is perfect).

      After the taping Joel and I hit up a couple of bars. First we went to The Arsenal which was practically right next to the studio. Then we wandered around a bit and eventually ended up at a bar called Forty Deuce. We almost didn't go in because they had a $15 cover fee, but we decided to try it out. The place was kind of empty so we sat at the bar and almost as soon as we sat down the place started filling up. It must have been packed to capacity. Then a three piece jazz band showed up and then a burlesque show started. Apparently the burlesque show is the bar's thing and it was incredible. The girls literally came off stage, onto the bar itself and danced the whole way. It was easily one of the most amazing/cool things I've ever seen in my life.

      This morning at LAX I was looking for a book to read (specifically Cryptonomicon) but I couldn't find it, so I settled on a couple of magazines. I saw one kind of interesting looking computer magazine called CPU (computer power user), so I started leafing through it. It had columns written by Alex St. John (inventor of DirectX), Alex Ross (founder of sharkyextreme.com, which used to be one of my favorite hardware review sites till he left it 3 years ago), Anand Lal Shimpi (founder of anandtech.com), Kyle Bennett (of hardocp fame), Rob Malda (aka CmdrTaco from slashdot), and Chris Pirillo (formerly of Call for Help fame and founder of lockergnome.com). Ok, now this may sound like a fucking advertisement, but I am a hardware snob and *HATE* all computer magazines out there, but based on the columnists alone, I had to buy this magazine. I read this magazine for the entire 3 hour flight from LAX back to Austin. Holy shit, if you know your hardware, this is the perfect magazine for you. It reminds me of Maximum PC before it got shitty like six years ago (and now that I think about it, Alex St. John used to write for Maximum PC). You should definitely give the magazine a look through if you see it on a newsstand. It gets the Gus seal of approval.

      PS
      I swear that those places did not pay me to plug them, I honestly think they are cool. I only say that because I feel like I'm gushing about them and I *never* gush.

    • Anime Reactor/Unscrewed

      13 years ago

      gus Elite Staff

      Before I mention anything else I need to say I will be going to Los Angeles tomorrow to appear on the G4TechTV show "Unscrewed" along with Joel (Caboose). If you're in the area and want tickets you can go here to request tickets. The episode airs on November 9th (try and pry yourself from Halo 2 for a few minutes to watch us on the television).

      Well, Anime Reactor was a blast. We got invited up there by Caitlin who is one of the event organizers. She seemed very busy there and so we didn't get to hang out too much but it was great to finally meet her in person. My favorite Caitlin moment was when she nearly bumped into a lady at the airport and the lady (very nicely) said "Watch where you are going." To which Caitlin replied "Shut up!" I also got to meet Unitdaisy, Peccaui, Dragonedge and Mrs. Dragonedge in person for the first time ever. I don't know about those guys but it was a lot of fun to hang out with them. It's weird to think I've probably known all those people for almost 3 years now (even before RvB) and just met them face to face for the first time. I also met people who hang out here at the site but can't remember their usernames (other than Phuzzy). Oh yeah, we got to eat pancakes at the "Golden Nugget" with Peccaui and Unitdaisy which was awesome.

      The convention went over well. We made a special video entitled "Sailor Goon" and I think it was well received. Our panel was well attended and we even got to judge a "Cosplay Idol" competition where people dressed up and performed skits and I got to be an asshole to them. I'm told I may have been a little too hard on the kids. One of the groups tried to bribe the judges with a bottle of liquor, and while everyone else gave them high scores for it, I gave them a very low score. Bribery does not win Gus over!

      Anyway, since Dragonedge and Mrs. Dragonedge wanted to see "Angry Gus" (my drunk alter-ego), I had to oblige. The night grew kind of hazy for a while. I know we were in the elevator for a bit and I talked some shit to some guy who said Family Guy was better than Futurama, and the next thing I knew I was wrestling some girls in a kiddie pool filled with applesauce. Yuck. When I took a shower that night I had to pay special attention to remove the applesauce from my ears (that was gross).

    • Sad Day

      13 years ago

      gus Elite Staff

      Today is one of the top three saddest days of my life. I was going to eat lunch at Coco's Cafe near where I live and THEY WERE CLOSED! They shut down the location nearest where I live. They had the best pot stickers in the world but no more. I used to go there 3 or 4 times a week. Gus is sad today.

      For the record, the two other saddest days in my life were (in no particular order):
      1. Last episode of Quantum Leap
      2. Day the Dismemberment Plan broke up.

      I just had to call 911 for the first time in my life. Geoff and I were driving back to Austin after doing some RvB work down in Buda tonight and as we turned onto the street that we live on we saw a lot of smoke and dirt in the air. I turned to Geoff and said "What the fuck is up with all this dust?" Then I saw that immediately in front of us there were two cars that had driven off the road. I thought that was odd and looked some more and saw all the dust and smoke was from a car that had just flipped over and been crushed like an aluminum can. The accident must have just happened because people started pulling over to go see if anybody needed help so I called 911 to get an ambulance out there. As I placed the call a cop showed up and started to try and bring order to the scene. I am about 90% sure that whoever was in the overturned car had to be dead. That was a horrific looking wreck. If that person turns out to be dead, that will be the second traffic related fatality I've seen first hand this week (the first was on Wednesday in Buda). Man, that was unnerving.

      Today I woke up with an epiphany, and I thought I'd share it with you. I realized how the Rooster Teeth Podcast can finally climb to number 1 podcast ever, of all time. You, Geoff, and Joel go on a manned shuttle to Mars, and host the podcast, IN SPAAACE. You and Geoff have already said you'd like to, and Joel would finally be able to start his own economic system on Mars. Here's the beauty of it: refuse to communicate with Earth in any way other than podcast. How's the United States President via satellite sound for the fourth seat? All Red vs Blue lines could be recorded there as well, and who's to say it can't have a ten year supply of liquor? NEW BRANDING: The Drunk Shuttle.

      You guys were talking about skydiving a lot on the latest podcast. Thought I'd share this - probably one of the heartbreaking videos on the net. It's a video recording of a guy who collides with someone else in mid-air, causing him to fall without a parachute (1st person perspective with voice). He survived, but was partially paralyzed. It took him 4 years before he he could watch the video and he then decided to post it.
      Heartbreaking, but worth a watch:

      Hey Gus, did you know you predicted the future? So one day I was listening to the old Rooster Teeth Podcast #17 and at 2:16 in the podcast, they start talking about the new DLC for Left 4 Dead and the new game coming out, Left 4 Dead 2! At 3:41,you and Geoff were thinking that Valve should make a DLC to bridge the gap between Left 4 Dead and Left 4 Dead 2, and at 3:49, Burnie made a joke that that DLC should take place on a bridge. Guess what! They just predicted the future! Eventually, Left 4 Dead 2 made a DLC that bridged the gap between Left 4 Dead and Left 4 dead 2 and there is more! The first and last part of that DLC, took place near and on a bridge! It is safe to say that Rooster Teeth just predicted Left 4 Dead 2's DLC! I just wanted to get that out there because i thought it was cool! Hope you read this!
