    Words can't accurately express the love i have for this company and community. from a couple guys in Burnie's spare room, to the best online content production company in the world, with nearing 300 phenomenal employees and brought millions of us together from all walks of life. This company is truly something magical and one of a kind, and the last 14 years have been increasingly amazing year by year. From awesome content, to having your own convention with the most supportive and kick ass community ever, or even the couple that met and got married because of Rooster Teeth, what you've created with the other founders and everyone henceforth is beyond measure. Here's to another 14 unforgettable years!

    Burnie truly is inspirational. The whole of RT is something else. From 5 guys in a spare bedroom to 250 who are known and loved all around the world. Thanks for making something that brings so many together.

    I don't really have a problem with heights but the part of the video you shot on that platform ... The way the camera moved up on that platform made me a little motion sick.  Then again I am a bit hung over this morning.

    In this episode of Burnie Vlog our protagonist looks back through his year worth of journeys. Through achievements, serious talks, truly strange events, torturing/tutoring Ellie and plenty of food we live the year of the Rooster again. Which friends did we catch up with this year? Will Ellie complete her training for her next review? Did Burnie master the art of coffee brew? 
    This and more on this week's episode of Burnie Vlog.

    GOOD SHIT!!!


    2017 was a shit year overall for the u.s. and the general quality of living and i'm more scared for the future than i've ever been. however it's been one of the best years for me professionally! got to work officially for RT/AH for the first time! and i landed my first in-studio LA animation job! and i've enjoyed so much rt content this year, it's been such a blast! feels weird to say that i'm proud of burnie and proud of rt, but i am. let's kick ass in 2018.
