    • A Meandering Road Trip from Rooster Teeth to Meow Wolf

      3 months ago

      Rooster Teeth Poppycock

      The American Southwest is a fascinating place full of open spaces, quirky people, and landmarks that border on the bizarre. If you’ve never had a chance to explore it, you’re missing out. There are dozens of destinations to behold, but you can take in some of our favorites during a three-day, slightly-less-than-direct road trip from the Rooster Teeth studios in Austin, Texas to Meow Wolf in Santa Fe, New Mexico.


      Start your engines.

      Google Maps Itinerary


      Day One: Austin > Marfa

      This day is a doozie, so you’re going to want to get an early start. Texas is huge. This leg will take you from Austin to Marfa, with several fun stops in between.


      Stop 1: Stonehenge II in Ingram, Texas

      GZc1846.jpg

      This unexpected roadside attraction is located just over 100 miles west of Austin, on the grounds of the Hill Country Arts Foundation. It’s the perfect place to stop once your morning coffee kicks in.


      Stonehenge II was created by Al Shepperd and Doug Hill more than 20 years ago. It took nine months to build and is 90% the height and 60% the width of the original Stonehenge. Shepperd eventually added two 13-foot Easter Island head replicas to add to the mystique.


      This site is free and open to the public from dawn until nightfall.

      Stop 2: Caverns of Sonora in Sonora, Texas

      Image source: Caverns of Sonora


      From Stonehenge II, your next landmark is a quick 100-mile jaunt away.


      The Caverns of Sonora were once described as, "This is the most indescribably beautiful cave in the world, its beauty cannot be exaggerated, not even by a Texan." The cave was formed between 1.5 to 5 million years ago and is known for its incredible calcite crystal formations, especially helictites.


      Two-hour-long guided tours are available through almost two miles of visually stunning cave passages. You can buy tickets on-site for $20 or online at a slightly discounted rate. Their hours of operation are 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. from March 1 through Labor Day, and 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. from the Tuesday after Labor Day through the end of February.

      Stop 3: Marfa Lights Viewing Area near Marfa, Texas

      Image source: Visit Marfa


      Your final attraction of the day sits a little over three hours from Sonora. No visit to West Texas is complete without a stop to see the famous Marfa Lights. If you timed your trip just right, you should be rolling into this destination at sunset – the perfect time to see the lights.


      The Marfa Lights are strange, glowing orbs that appear over a vast stretch of desert land. They’re said to have been witnessed as early as 1883, though the first published account only traces back to 1957. There’s a lot of debate over the source of the phenomena; some say they’re caused by paranormal entities or aliens, while pragmatists say they’re simply headlights from cars traveling along U.S. Highway 67. Whatever your beliefs, this is a cool destination with super creepy public toilets that appear to drain directly into the core of the earth.


      This destination is free to the public and open 24 hours.

      Stop 4: Spend the Night in Marfa, Texas

      Image source: El Cosmico


      You’re now deep in the middle of nowhere, so we advise stopping to spend the night in Marfa. It’s a very cool little town with a surprisingly active art and culinary scene. El Cosmico is an awesome place to stay. They have accommodations for any budget: you can bring your own tent and sleep on their grounds for $20 per person per night, you can glamp in their tepees or safari tents for a bit more, or you can go all out and stay in one of their restored trailers.


      Day Two: Marfa > Santa Fe

      If you thought yesterday was a doozie, prepare yourself for a double doozie. You aren’t even out of Texas yet. This leg will take you from Marfa to Santa Fe, with several fun stops in between.


      Stop 1: Prada Marfa near Valentine, Texas

      yUPOYz7.jpg

      About 30 miles northwest of Marfa resides arguably the most famous roadside attraction in all of Texas, visited by Beyoncé and parodied on The Simpsons.


      Though it looks like a store in the middle of nowhere, Prada Marfa is actually a permanently installed sculpture by artists Elmgreen and Dragset. Its juxtaposition against the sprawling Texas desert is an incredible sight.

      Stop 2: Carlsbad Caverns near Carlsbad, New Mexico

      Roughly two hours from Prada Marfa sits Carlsbad Caverns, New Mexico’s only national park. You could spend several days exploring all of its caves, but there’s also an option for a quick, 1-2 hour visit. If that’s your plan, you can enter and exit the cave via an elevator in the visitor center and walk the Big Room self-guided tour. The visitor center also has restrooms and concessions if that’s what you seek.


      A general admission ticket is required for anyone entering Carlsbad Caverns. Adults 16 years and older are $12, while children 15 and younger are free. The caverns are open from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 or 5:00 p.m. depending upon the time of year, so it’s best to check the hours before you stop.

      Stop 3: International UFO Museum and Research Center in Roswell, New Mexico

      You simply cannot drive through New Mexico without engaging in some classic alien tourism. Lucky for you, the ultimate destination is only an hour and a half away.


      The International UFO Museum and Research Center is dedicated to the collection and preservation of materials and information related to the infamous UFO crash in Roswell in 1947, as well as other unexplained phenomena related to UFO research.


      The museum is open from 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. every day. Admission is $5 for adults, $2 for children ages 5 to 15, and $3 for seniors, military, and first responders.


      114 N. Main Street, Roswell, New Mexico 88203

      https://www.roswellufomuseum.com


      Stop 4: Cowboy Ruckus near Vaughn, New Mexico

      About 73 miles north of Roswell, between mileposts 184 and 183 on US Hwy 285, sits an unexpected sight. An 18-foot-tall cowboy points accusingly across the highway at another towering cowpoke, who shrugs it off. Created by artist John Cerney, the giant full-color wooden cutouts are modeled after the two cowboy brothers who own the land. It’s a fun, quick photo opportunity to break up the final leg of your trip.

      Stop 5: Spend the Night in Santa Fe, New Mexico

      You’re going to want to spend as much time as possible at Meow Wolf, so we recommend taking it easy for the night once you arrive in Santa Fe. There are plenty of lodging options for all tastes and budgets, so do your thing.


      Day Three: Meow Wolf!

      Ash is disabled former admin based in Newcastle, United Kingdom. Inspired by all of the other amazing Box of Issues boxes that had been sent in to Always Open, Ash wanted to make their own version. They initially designed the four sides of the box using their graphics tablet which was then printed on fabric paper and then hand sewn into the fabric directly. The finished design was then glued to the box to make the Box of Issues that you see in the above photo. Overall, it took Ash about 2 months in total to create this.

    • Fan Art Friday #121: Always Open Logo by SailorGirl81

      Rooster Teeth Poppycock

      It’s time for our weekly look at the best Rooster Teeth fan art from our community, curated by the fine folks at BIGBITE!


      This week’s featured artist is Eileen, AKA @SailorGirl81 for this incredible rendition of the Always Open logo.


      M65DgDD.jpg


      Eileen is a retired community member based out of Central New York State. Her inspiration for this piece came from seeing the logo and posing the question, “Could I render this in a physical form?” Well, she answered the question for herself after creating the silhouette in a computer program then used a stencil cutter to make the shapes. Next, she glued them to a matboard and used another stencil and a gel medium to make the dots around it. Then - metal tape, metal tape EVERYWHERE. After a whole lot of burnishing to get the tape around the shapes, she finished it up with some yellow and black paint to add color and aging to make what you’re seeing here today. All in all, this beauty took Eileen about six hours to make.

    • Fan Art Friday #119: Crescent Rose Prop and Ronin Ruby Armor by PaulKaryakos

      Rooster Teeth Poppycock

      It’s time for our weekly look at the best Rooster Teeth fan art from our community, curated by the fine folks at BIGBITE!


      This week’s featured artist is Paul Karyakos, AKA @PaulKaryakos, for this incredible Crescent Rose prop and Ruby Ronin armor.


      pwItvI7.jpg


      Paul is a freelancer who creates RWBY custom armors and nerf blasters based out of the beautiful Pacific Northwest. For this particular instance, both the Crescent Rose and Armor are a combination of PVC, foam, and 3D printed parts with about 100 total hours built into the creations over a year. He incorporated a Nerf Raptorstrike into the build to help create the sniper rifle action. He mentions that it was a lot of trial and error, but in the end loved what was created. The inspiration for these pieces came from when Paul attended Comic Con and saw a set of super fancy Star Wars samurai armor, which posed the question, “Why not Ruby?” You can find more of Paul’s work on his Instagram, @PaulKaryakos.
