    • My Tumblr blog, Press Start

      6 months ago

      Blue_Team VGHS

      So I started a Tumblr blog called "Press Start". Something simple and to help me be more productive. I can see the irony, hypocrisy, or whatever you wanna call it in starting a blog to become more productive when I couldn't even maintain a steady stream of journals here. Hell, I'm laughing just looking at my last journal title "Laziness Strikes Again", it's kind of an ominous sign to the future of my Tumblr blog.


      However I'm not going let that stop me. Setting alarms, writing reminder notes, I'm going to do whatever I can to not let this blog end up as another failed project. Now don't expect anything fancy from it, as it will say in the blog, it's just for giving my personal opinion on things in geek culture. I'm not trying to go professional or anything, it's just to give me something to do and maybe help improve my writing my skills.


      Here is the link and I hope you are having a great start to your new year!

      UPDATE: It wasn't until after I posted my Tumblr blog and wrote this journal did I see that there are about a dozen other blogs called Press Start. Great start so far, haha.

    • Laziness Strikes Again

      10 months ago

      Blue_Team VGHS

      Well for anyone who actually reads these, thank you and sorry that I never write a follow up to my last journal regarding TO: Uncon. A lot has happened since than obviously; TO: Uncon, RTX, a family reunion, all of it good but no excuse for not posting sooner.

      I'll keep this journal somewhat brief to help bring you all up to speed on what's been happening with me. Started another semester of college, it's taking me longer than most people to finish, but I've gotten better at keeping up with my classes and homework so the end is only another year away, give or take a few months.

      TO: Uncon and RTX were beyond awesome. Seeing my friends and family again was so fun and the events gave me a lot great memories to help get me through the rest of this year's uppers, downers and time away from you all. I posted this video on Facebook and Twitter that summed up my feelings and thoughts after the event was over, if you somehow missed it, here it is: Okay never mind, for some reason the link isn't posting properly. Probably just a bug Adam and the team on working on as we speak. *Hint hint*

      I recently signed up as a Red Cross volunteer to help get me out of the house and broaden my horizons. I haven't been able to volunteer for any shifts yet however, as I've been helping to take care of my grandfather who has had cancer for about the last year or so. I'm doing well, but the rest of the family is obviously having a hard time with it.

      My gaming is as strong as ever. Destiny is still fun, I've been kicking ass with my Hunter on both PS4 and Xbone now so that I will have more opportunities to play with my RT friends and people on Rooster Speak. It's keeping me entertained enough until Fallout 4 and Halo 5 are released. When that happens, good bye social life, I barely knew thee haha.

      Well that's pretty much it. Oh also, I saw that RvB 13 finale, damn . . . them feels.

      Until next time everyone. Take care and be excellent to each other.

      - Josh

    • Prologue to TO: Uncon Journal

      TO: Uncon is over and I had a blast, but I'll be saving my full journal about the fun I had for tomorrow. In the mean time, I'm going to end this journal with a gif that sums up my thoughts and emotional state as I realized that both TO: Uncon and the current RT site would be gone after today.

    • 5 Facts about Myself

      1 year ago

      Blue_Team VGHS

      1. I procrastinate, a lot, hence why this journal is happening a week after the trend passed. Somehow though I always manage to pull off success at the last minute, which could explain why I still do it.

      2. For the last year or so, I've been binge watching anime like it's the end of the world. Some of my favorite series in no particular order are; Sword Art Online, Log Horizon, Future Diary, Aldnoah Zero, A Certain Scientific Railgun, Death Note, Psycho-Pass, Naruto Shippuden, Pokemon, RWBY (Obviously), Attack on Titan, Avatar: TLA & LOK, Zoids: Chaotic Century and many more.

      3. About a year ago I ran a Zombie 5K with one of my best friends Matt. For someone who barely exercises once a year, let alone run a 5K, I did pretty well. I was even in decent shape when I finished it, not too out of breath. I really enjoyed it and might do it again, but only if I ran with people I knew.

      4. Video Games are my life, I don't actually remember a time when I wasn't involved with video game culture. I even want to be a video game designer, specifically a concept artist. I love concept art for it's rich colors and potential to show a world that may not be a possibility in the final product of a game. For me when I look at concept art, I'm looking at the fully realized version of that world not bound not technological limitations. The trick for me is to not let procrastination get in the way of practicing my art skills, which is hard. I've still got a long way to go.

      5. I love you guys, that's right I used the "L" word. I got involved on this site almost 10 years ago to watch Red vs. Blue and maybe talk nerdy to a few people. Instead I found a talented, loving community of fellow nerds and geeks that accepted me with no judgments and who I can be myself with. Some of the events I've attended over the last few years have also helped me break out of my social shell in a big way and I can never thank you guys enough for that. I'm sure I've said this in multiple journals and posts before, but just in case some of you don't know, I consider this site my home and this community my family. I love you. smiley12.gif

      TLDR: I procrastinate, like anime, ran a 5K, want to be a video game concept artist, I love you all!

    • RIP Monty

      1 year ago

      Blue_Team VGHS

      I'm not very good at expressing myself with words as it is, especially now with this tragic loss.

      I never knew Monty Oum. I briefly passed him in the VIP Lounge at RTX 2014 and while I loved his work and wanted to say hello, I didn't because he was probably there to take a break from all the fans and I didn't want to be a bother. Even though I never got to know him personally, I will never forget him or his tremendous impact on this community.

    • Name Your Own Price Game Design Bundle

      1 year ago

      Blue_Team VGHS

      The title says it all, sort of. StackSocial.com is currently offering over 100 hours of Game Design courses ranging from scripting and level design to drawing techniques and modeling using programs like Unity 3D and Photoshop. All you have to do is pay more money than the current average for all 4 training apps, which is currently $7.57, for content that would cost around $800.

      An even better incentive is that the money you spend goes to one of the following charities: Child's Play (Which is the charity I'm selecting), World Wildlife Fund, and Creative Commons. Now keep in mind this bundle is only for the lessons and training in Unity 3D, Photoshop and Maya, the actual programs do not come bundled. However they list ways to get the free versions of these programs for you to use, the only exception is Adobe Photoshop.

      Click here for the Game Design Bundle.

      Whether you choose to buy a bundle or not, share this with your friends or anyone you know who might be interested in making video games. This could be incredibly helpful to them and the money is going to some great causes!

    • Not Another Damn Post-RTX Journal!!

      2 years ago

      Blue_Team VGHS

      Yes it's gonna be one of those journals people, procrastination and I have a love/hate relationship but I've finally got through it to write this. I'm going to avoid writing numerous paragraphs explaining how much fun I had and how awesome RTX was because frankly there isn't enough space in this journal, so I'll just write down some highlights from my experience.

      - I spent quite a bit of time during the weekend hanging out with @Jteeth, @MisterJ984, @Victolic and my roommate @PreacherPain.
      - Also spent some time hanging out with @ActionMan and helping him with his injured leg. I hope him a speedy recovery, but I can't deny that being his VIP +1 for a couple days was pretty sweet.
      - Each day after RTX I went to the RT SideQuest events and they were amazing, major props to Newbs for helping to put it all together and bringing everyone such joy! (My mistake, major props properly go to @GB330033 for RT SideQuest. However @Newbs does deserve credit for the incredible Rooster Speak Dinner!!)
      - Spent quite a bit of time talking to the very talented @lukemckay and even got some of his books and posters signed along with a portrait of my face. (Which should be my avatar once I get my scanner up and running.)
      - I got addicted playing an iOS game called Battle Nations thanks to Luke Mckay. It's kind of like the Civilization games, but in a military sci-fi setting and the characters are funny as hell, very reminiscent of Red vs. Blue with quite a few pop culture references. The combat and story is very addicting so if you play or would like to, hit me up on there (JoshPhil1138) as I'm in a Rooster Teeth guild with Luke and we could always use more players!
      - Throughout the weekend I've run into and talked to some of my good friends and made some new ones, not that I have any bad ones on here, like @Cheshire_Cat, @Cove, @OboeCrazy, @Hunter, @Nat, Toku @Schraver, @Blitz120, @Juls, @Steven, @DarkBowler, @Dracoizumi, and I'm sure I've missed some people so if I did I'm sorry and I owe you one extra hug and a drink. smiley12.gif
      - Spent the last night at Buffalo Billards for SideQuest hanging out with all the awesome people listed above and good times were had by all.
      - On the last day, Monday July 7th, I went to the Salt Lick with the others. I went by cab, but with the trip being expensive as hell I ended up sharing it with Hunter and @Tejnin who does some amazing cosplay and was an absolute pleasure to hang out and chat with. Thank you for being awesome and for the cosplay tips, keep up the awesome work!

      In the end the trip was phenomenal and even covering the highlights doesn't do the event justice. No doubt talking about it with you guys when we meet at future events will bring up some memories I can share, I hope everyone had a great time and a safe trip home. I surprisingly didn't cry as I left, probably because I know I'll be seeing some of you in less than a month at TO: Uncon, but for those I won't, it was awesome seeing you and we'll just keep in touch on here! I check the site multiple times a day, so this site is the best way to reach me.

      That's about it for now, I'll talk to you guys later. Remember, play more games!

    • I'm snow over you

      2 years ago

      Blue_Team VGHS

      Horrible pun I know, but after weeks of snow than sun than back to snow, I'm done with winter. I have so many cool geek and RT shirts (pun not intended) I want to wear and show off, but I'm having to wear my hoodie over them.

      This morning when I looked outside my bedroom window and saw our street covered in a layer of fresh unplowed snow, I found it to be kinda beautiful, even though I knew I was about to do some serious shoveling. It probably took me close to three hours, with the help of some kind neighbors, to clean off my car down the street, my mom's car, and the street across from my house where I usually park. It was really nice being able to work side by side with my neighbors and even though I was cold and tired, by the end of it we were proud of ourselves.

      So to the dirtbag who came in and immediately took my parking spot, not 5 minutes after I cleared it myself, know this. Your days are numbered!

      not much man, not much at all haha

      and the Philly Fund hasnt really gotten much added to it in the last 3 weeks cos i've had to pay for my next semester of school which was $967. Then i have to pay for the class that i failed to do it again which is another $118. So the Philly Fund has definitely been a bit stale for a while. Hopefully i can save up enough money tho!

      well it was when we all had to lie down on the ground so my first thought was "oh im just resting on spiky painful grass" so i moved my hand without looking at it and it was still hurting.

      So i looked at my hand, saw them all and sat up yelling "holyfuckass!" I then shook them all off and waited for my hand to stop pulsating with pain while we did the rest of the shoot
