      I can't say I know for sure, since I've always been more of an observer of the community than a member of it, but journals and forum posts seem to have slowed way the hell down since the new site launched. Is that just me being completely and totally wrong? Not discounting that possibility, since I am wrong quite often, but it seems like a large portion of the community has moved to other places, like Reddit. It's kind of sad to see, since everything I've heard about the RT community is really awesome and has made me interested to join it. I feel like this new update has made it hard to really be a part of it, even if it is way prettier and technically more functional than the old site.


      I don't really know, just something I've observed.

      Hello internet strangers, how are you doing today? I'm doing pretty well myself, I got back into producing videos and stuff for my channel (again) and I've been really happy with the stuff I've been turning out. It's made me realize a few things about myself, and I feel like sharing that here. Why? WHO KNOWS!

      The biggest thing it's made me realize is what I want to do with my life. There is no doubt in my mind that I want to be an entertainer for a living. Whether that means an actor, having a successful YouTube channel, being a writer, etc. isn't the important part for me. I live to entertain, hearing and seeing people genuinely enjoy something that I made makes me feel indescribably happy, and it's the only thing that does that for me.

      Another thing that it made me realize is how awful my laziness is for my happiness. I'm at my happiest when I'm creating things or doing something productive that requires effort on my part and works toward some kind of goal. Whether that's making a video, building something, drawing, anything like that. Granted, I'm not particularly good at any of those things, but that's part of the whole beauty of it, I can improve if I work hard enough. I'm taking a vow to myself to make some serious changes in the ways I budget my time so that I can work on the things that matter to me.

      The third and final thing it made me realize is just how grateful I am for people I have never met and in all likelihood never will meet. The amount of online friends I have is insane, especially considering that I genuinely view these people as friends. I'm closer to a lot of these people than I am to any of my classmates here in college, and while some people would probably view that as a problem I think it's pretty amazing. I really don't know what I'd do without some of them, because they're some of the best friends I've ever had.



      I'm sure none of this is of any interest to anyone on here, but I felt like writing out what's on my mind and there's not really anywhere else for me to post it, so... I guess I'll just leave this here.

      So I've had an account on this site for a solid 3 years now, but I generally keep all of my browsing to Reddit and watch all of the videos on YouTube. However, after hearing nothing but good things about the community on the site itself I really want to give getting involved in the community another shot. The main issue, though: I have no idea how to do that.

      Or, to be more specific, I kind of feel like I missed the boat. Like I wasn't around when the community site launched, or when some group or something was created. I feel like there's a barrier to entry that I just don't really understand how to bypass. I'm also making this whole thing sound super mechanical, but hopefully all 2 of the people who read this get the idea. I really want to get involved in the community, but I have no idea how to.

      In the past I've irregularly posted on the forums, but that didn't really make me feel like I was part of the community. It was just a bunch of talking heads, and I wasn't making friends or meeting anyone. Everyone (including me) seemed to just post a response and leave, not really a ton of interaction. I'm also not 100% clear on how you're supposed to meet people and make friends by posting Journals, since the only people who see these are the people who are either already friends with me or are following me (for some unknown reason). I guess there's a good chance that's partially due to the fact that most of my journals are just me talking about my YouTube channel (another thing I need to get back to) and that's not a great way to make friends.

      Anyways, if anyone could post advice in some form or another I'd appreciate the shit out of it. From what I've heard, this community sounds like something I don't want to be missing out on.

      Alright, look. I've been watching the "Your YouTube!" thread for a long time now, and I have got to say that it's pretty much useless to post on there. At this point it's just people posting their stuff and no one watching/commenting on anyone else's videos. It's essentially just a million people yelling at one another and no one is paying attention to what anyone else has to say. So, I think the best way to fix this is pretty simple. In this YouTube thread, when you post a new video, please also give feedback to someone else, comment on their video, just do something other than saying "hey this is my new video" and PTFO-ing. Because if everyone's doing that... What's the point of posting in the first place? Anyways, I'll start by posting my most recent video in Gmod DarkRP, would love to hear what you guys think!

      HIIMCAPSLOCK

      So I saw this movie with a friend last night, and I figured I'd just write up a little review.

      THE SHORT VERSION

      Go and see this movie. It's the most fun I've had in a movie in a long, LONG time. I enjoyed myself more while watching this than anything else I've seen so far this year. The characters are awesome and likable, the story is great, the writing is top-notch, and everyone just seems to be having a great time. Better than The Avengers by a long shot, and I mean that. Seriously, go and see this movie, you won't regret it.

      THE LONG VERSION

      Go and see this movie. Really, I mean everything I said above. I didn't know anything about The Guardians of the Galaxy comics until the first few trailers for this came out, it looked like a pretty good time to me so I decided to pick up some of the comics from Amazon and give them a read. I was really pleasantly surprised, the Guardians of the Galaxy are (in my opinion) basically a more fun version of the Avengers. From Space. So yeah, I dug the shit out of the comics, and that got me a lot more pumped for the movie's release. Lo and behold, the movie came out and... Well, you know how I feel about it. Now, do you need to be a Guardians fan to enjoy the movie? Absolutely not, Marvel did a fantastic job introducing the viewers to the world and characters. My friend didn't know jack shit about Guardians before we walked into the theater, and he enjoyed the movie just as much as I did (he agrees that it was head and shoulders above the Avengers) and didn't have any trouble following it.

      Now let's break it down a bit, I'm gonna cover each of the characters individually and talk a bit about how the actors/movie portrays them.

      STARLORD
      star-lord-2.jpg

      Chris Pratt was perfect as Starlord, there's really nothing else that needs to be said. Starlord struck me in the comics as basically being the Han Solo of Marvel comics, and he's very much that way in the movie. He's relatable, funny, snarky, likable, goofy, and clumsily badass. It's a shame Chris Pratt's comedy career is over, because he's now an A-list action star. Oh well, at least he's great at that too. And dreamy.

      GAMORA
      3123623-tumblr_moadtpu0iq1r89a2ho1_1280.

      Gamora is cool, hot, and badass, but she's more than that. Her backstory (which I won't go into here to avoid completely nerding out) is really, really interesting to me. She develops quite a bit throughout the movie, and Zoe Saldana's chemistry with Chris Pratt is the perfect representation of Gamora's relationship with Peter Quill. All in all, a great performance for a great character with a great backstory. Great.

      DRAX THE DESTROYER
      511159-sc0002d16e.jpg

      In my personal opinion, Drax is the weakest of the characters in both the comics and the movies. He's not bad by any stretch of the imagination, he's just not as lively, fun, or interesting as the rest of the cast, and that's a daunting task anyways. Anyways, Drax is portrayed pretty well, but not fantastically by Dave Bautista. He's just not the strongest actor out there, but considering that Drax comes from a planet where everything is taken very literally it honestly kind of works. In the end, Drax was about as good as he could've been in this movie.

      GROOT
      groot___guardians_of_the_galaxy.jpg?form

      I love Groot.

      ROCKET RACCOON
      rocket-raccoon.jpg

      Bradley Cooper knocks it out of the park as the voice of Rocket, one of my all time favorite comic book characters. He's obviously having an amazingly fun time, and as a result it's impossible not to enjoy yourself watching this fuzzy little badass building weapons and kicking ass. Rocket's the classic "likable asshole," and he's god damn hilarious. I don't want to say too much about him to avoid spoiling it for anyone who doesn't know much about the comics, but people who have read them should know that the movie absolutely NAILS Rocket Raccoon.

      RONAN THE ACCUSOR
      2697774-ronan.jpg

      Probably the weakest point of this movie is the fact that the main baddy they're going up against is Ronan. He's not the greatest villain in the world, and he's definitely not a Joker or a Loki. Nothing against Lee Pace, who plays him in the movie, it's just that the character is a bit... Forgettable. He's just another Marvel bad guy. It's not really a huge problem though, as he's not even close to the main focus of the movie. In the end, they pretty much did as well as they could with Ronan.

      THE BOTTOM LINE

      You already know just how I feel about this movie by now. It's a pitch perfect adaptation of one of my new favorite comic book franchises, and I can't wait to see what else comes from it. All the characters are fantastic and the writing hits every beat. Guardians of the Galaxy is a comic book movie that remembers that comic book movies can be lighthearted and fun, but also remembers that they can have heart and soul. It has a personality all it's own, just like the comics do. If you haven't seen this movie yet you're doing yourself a disservice, and you need to fix that.

      I hadn't used the website in a while, so I decided to check it out last night and see if it had changed since the last time I'd logged on. I was greeted by a bunch of lonely and horny men looking to cyber with me, so I could tell it was mostly the same as it was a year or so ago. I had a few nice conversations, but for the most part it was either guys who skipped me the second they found out I had a penis, some chick promoting her Instagram account, and then a collection of robots.

      Weirdly enough, the bots were by and large the "people" (this feels oddly racist to put in quotation marks) I had the most fun talking to, so I saved one of the chatlogs for any of you beautiful people who might want to see.

  • About Me

    I've been recording and editing gameplay videos for the past 4 years, although the (vast) majority of the videos I made are no longer on the internet. Oh yeah, they're archived somewhere, but they were all on YouTube and I closed my old YouTube account. I managed to grow a very very very modest "fanbase" in the Halo community during Halo: Reach by making moderately popular forge maps, primarily Race tracks and Mini games, a few of which ended up on the AH show "Game Night" and one of which got Geoff to call me "Hi I'm asshole" in HORSE.
