Burnie’s Vlog with a Broken Nintendo Switch

RT Life: Burnie’s Vlog with a Broken Nintendo Switch

Ashley made the mistake of asking Burnie to help unbox her new Nintendo Switch, but Burnie redeems himself by showing us around Austin, including a sneak peek at the newest Alamo Drafthouse right by the Rooster Teeth office.

    These are more and more like the Casey Neistat vlogs, but they're actually about subjects I care about and they don't make me monumentally jealous. So it's a win win :D

    I get the whole unisex bathroom thing (yay, progress and that shtick), but in reality what part of the time is it that the simple men's/women's system isn't sufficient? 5%?


    This is solely for transgendered people, right? Born a man but identify as a woman and want to use a gender neutral bathroom or vice-versa? What percentage of the total population is transgender?


    It just seems like they've made far less bathroom capacity to accommodate a minuscule percentage of their customer base.

      Actually, I'd prefer it even with me being a straight guy because I constantly feel like the guys restroom is shorted on stalls because of urinals. Okay, great, it takes you 5 seconds less to pee. There's a 15 minute line when you're holding in a huge shit. I'll take the extra stalls every day.

    The forced perspective on the bridge shot at the beginning worked really well, much better than the one at the airport.

    The film incentives Burnie mentioned are critically important and can make or break an areas film industry. I'm from Wilmington, NC which up until 2015 was a major production hub. Lots of tv shows and movies would film here in the city (Iron man 3, sleepy hollow, under the dome, etc) because the state film incentives made NC a very affordable place to film and there was a very talented local community of crew members and artist. Unfortunately our state senate voted against these tax incentives and effectively killed Wilmington film leaving thousands of us without jobs almost over night. At the same time Georgia, specifically the city of Atlanta, created a new incentive program (the largest and most expansive in the nation currently) and now their film industry adds over a billion, yes billion with a b, to Georgia's economy annually. The problem is that many people not involved in the film industry think that it only supports specialized industry jobs like actors or crew members but the film industry has a positive impact on almost every business in the areas where its present. The fact that these interviews and discussions are happening in Austin are a worrying sign for Texas Film because this is exactly what happened in Wilmington before we lost our incentives.

      Agreed...thanks for taking time from your obviously busy schedule to keep us informed with all the goings on there at RT.  Although, I'm not sure I've seen an official announcement of your engagement to Ashley (only the random comment from Barb in her Marketing vs Burnie vid).  Did you guys announce that or was it a slip by Barb?  Anyway...congrats to you and Ashley.

    The Neistat is strong in this one.

    Cutting off himself while talking? Check.

    Pointing at something in the video that is behind him? Check.

    Slow-moving drone shots? Check.

    Snazzy music at the beginning of the video? Check.

    Sunglasses so that we can't see him looking at the camera screen to frame it right? Check.


    Nothing wrong with it, it's just really funny how much Casey Neistat has obviously influenced Burnie's blogs.

    The restroom thing was interesting and i am all for it. But idk if i want a set up like that in a movie theater. Usually for me after a movie at a cinemark theater(big style lots of stalls idk how theaters are in other places) usually the mens restroom has like 10 urinals /8 regular toilets. Idk about the womans restroom but usually it takes my female friends a long time to get in and and they always complain about waiting a long time to use the restroom. Ive actually seen one woman in line get pissed at another woman  for letting a friend "cut".  That was after marvel civil war. I feel as though the set up alamo has after watching a marvel movie wouldnt exactly be the greatest. Now you've slowed everyone down to what im assuming cant be more than 20 restrooms all together. Im all for those he/she restroom in some location where lots of foot traffic wouldnt exactly be an issue but i feel as though a movie theater could be a logistical nightmare for people. Idk i just dont want to have to wait in line for 10-15 min after a 2 hour movie with a bladder full of soda.

    You should give us tech nerds a tour of your new camera! like you did for all your other equipment.

    Or, alternatively, a re-update when you get a few more pieces of gear to show off I enjoy seeing what kind of tech goes into making your vlogs.

      Pretty sure multiple RT members have been on - unfortunately as a U.K resident, i only have access to the shitty, watered down 15 minute version (The pacing of the show just feels off)
      I watched the ep. with Burnie, Gavin and Barbara - but the way it was cut down made me not want to watch it unless i had the full thing

      Sorry...went on a ramble there

    I love the idea of gender neutral bathrooms. Safer for everyone. But where I work we have a few, and being on a college campus, there are some inconsiderate morons, so there ends up being cum on the floor and blood on the walls. Not always great.

    SUPER excited for Lazer Team 2. It was such a cool moment for me when the Indigogo got funded. It was my first year being your PA, and I had the amount we needed to beat to be the #1 most funded film on IGG written in sharpie on my wrist, and then I just happened to refresh my phone to check the amount and we did it and it was just so cool. Couple months later, I was reunited with friends I hadn't seen since HS and we watched it at my Tugg theater and it was so awesome XDDD!

    Also good on Alamo Theaters! The first (and sadly only time I need to change that lol) I've been to the one near me was for the RWBY S1-2 screening. I met A LOT of cool RT fans there. Cool to hear more about the BG of the Theater! XD!

    Hope you're well/150% better from your cold and hope I can visit Austin ASAP miss you guys a ton XD;;

    business question, that popped in my head the other day as I was watching the credits. 


    A little preface, when a tv show goes into syndication the talent is compensated with royalties, right.


    from Executive producer to extras get residuals. So my question is how does RT handle this. How are the profits on their shows spit among the cast and crew? I understand you may not want to get to much in the weeds, a a general answer would be cool.

    Burnie would you consider doing more 'A day in the life' themed vlogs? we got a taste of it with the Monday vlog, but it'd be interesting just to see how a full day usually goes for someone in AH, Miles, or Blaine, just to name a few.

    one of the things I'm most excited for during my first trip to Austin (besides RTX) is I'm finally going to be able to go to the infamous alamo drafthouse. you all talk about it so often as the cream of the crop movie viewing experiences. you'd think there would be something similar in LA but i've yet to find it. ( apparently there's an alamo coming downtown soon tho! but how soon...)


    I'll happily take that broken switch off your hands tho...... 


    as always, love to see these vlogs. it feels so personal and warm and fun.

    So is it a thing that Burnie Vlogs are going to be an RT life now? Or is it just when he mostly talks about Rooster Teeth? Either way it is good to see that they are taking feedback that I saw on the last vlog like the outro being Burnie style instead of the RT outro. Keep up the good work!
