Hey there, I'm Nick the organizer of Rooster Sheep (previously RvB NZ) so of course I'm going to shamelessly plug the event here. :)

I also have been peer pressured into doing the twitter so follow me @NickNewton07 where I will reveal the meaning of life. twitter.com/NickNewton07

Oh and yeah sometimes I like to go on long walks.......... really long walks. To Mordor!

MontyIn July 2013 a few days before RTX I had the absolute pleasure of meeting Monty. I was hanging out at the Rooster Teeth offices for the morning and made it a point to go and introduce myself. As I approached his desk he swung around and did a small double take and said Nick? to which I nodded and responded "Monty."

This moment stands out to me so much because in that tiny exchange we seemed to immediately become friends and to this day I'm still not sure how it happened. We went on to have a small chat but for the rest of the weekend whenever we crossed paths Monty would take the time to stop and ask me how my weekend was going and how my girlfriend was doing.

I even remember asking Chris how it was that someone could so instantly be that delightful and genuinely interested in what I had to say. But that's just who Monty was, he was just as excited to meet me as I was to meet him. Everything he did was for his fans and it all excited and motivated him.

During RTX I was luckily enough to attend a couple of the staff parties and even luckier to be convinced to get on the dance floor because there I had the pleasure of dancing with Monty. Whilst I probably made a fool of myself next to the amazingness that was Monty it was, and still is, one of the greatest moments of my life.

I know his passing will affect millions of people but the silver lining is that his work will live on and his fans will keep his memory alive. In the past few days I have seen a mountain of RWBY artwork posted online and I know that it is only the tip of the iceberg.

In this time it is ok to feel however you feel and no one can tell you otherwise. I believe that everyone grieves differently and comes to peace in there own way and time.

I love and miss you Monty; I know it's been said before but you really were and continue to be an inspiration.
