      Just to Clarify...

      1 year ago

      I don't know if my previous journals seem like conflicting information, so I'll just clarify some things about my YouTube channel(s). On my personal channel (https://www.youtube.com/user/NoNoAkimbo) I upload a variety of Let's Plays ranging from 10 - 15 minutes each. The length of videos might increase soon but not that drastically. Recently I have begun to experiment with various forms of editing to spice things up. Now, I also upload ~1 hour long Let's Plays on another channel called The Suplah. (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC-6IXW01i4mbGuvRtdhKhbw) This is a channel dedicated to all things pro-wrestling. I occasionally co-host on the main podcast, but my main job on this channel is to do record, edit, and upload the Let's Plays every week. Since it is a wrestling related channel, I only play wrestling games on it. However, I do believe that some of my best work (both in comedy and in editing) has been on this channel. My last journal post contained a link to a Let's Play on The Suplah's channel, and therefore, may have been confusing for some people. Anyway, I know that no one read this, but it just feels good to let the information free so I can help anyone who may end up caring in the future.

      My Newest Let's Play

      1 year ago

      I know that no one ever cares about these kinds of posts and I know that NO ONE ever clicks on them, but there's no harm in trying. I recently made a new Let's Play for my partner channel and, I gotta say, it's one of my best. Everything about it hit's the mark in my opinion (or at least as well as I could). Regardless, check it out if you dare. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GUOfyem7NiM

      Tis The Season

      1 year ago

      Well, now that the Spring 2014 Internships are being posted, I'm starting to relive the feelings of grief since I'm completely unable to be a part of it. Not only am I stuck in the butthole of Florida, but I'm too poor to get out. It is still my goal to work for RoosterTeeth some day, but the plan to get there is a mess as of now. I know I need a site to call my own, but I'm downright retarded when it comes to this stuff so I haven't been able to get anywhere on that front. At the same time, the only work I have to show for anything, is a collection of YouTube videos on TWO SEPARATE CHANNELS! My best Let's Plays are on a channel that I've , in a sense, "partnered" with. I'm not sure which roads I'll take or how long I'll be on them, but I'll be damned if they don't lead me to a job with RoosterTeeth Productions.

      Forced to Upgrade

      1 year ago

      It's funny how cheap you can manage to find something once you HAVE to get one. My little sister ran over my defenseless capture card, so now I've been forced to get a new one, but since SD capture cards are not very common anymore, I not only had to get an HD card, but also and HD TV. Luckily I've managed to find some pretty low prices. Now I have the TV, and have placed an order for a Roxio Game Cap HD Pro. With all that being said, expect to see more content on my YouTube channel soon (NoNoAkimbo), and also expect some possible Community Hunter videos.

      Someday...

      1 year ago

      I may not know how, and I definitely don't know when...but damn it...someday I will be a part of the RoosterTeeth team. This community and the passion that every employee puts into everything they do for this company means too much to me. I feel like I need to find whatever talent I have, whether it be editing or if people actually find me funny enough to do Let's Plays (I could care less what it is), and I need to utilize it for the good of RT. It may takes years or the offer could come to me tomorrow, but I promise that I will do whatever I can to work for this company...hopefully.

      Good Job Miles!

      2 years ago

      I would just like to take this time to applaud Miles for the job he's doing lately. Not only is he juggling all of his responsibilities in RWBY, but he's knocking it out of the park directing Season 11 of RvB. That last shot from episode 7 really made it sink in for some reason. Something about how everything was placed just right in the frame so you knew just enough of what was going on. It seemed to me like a really professional and natural place to end an episode. And episode 6's ending was even better with (imo) the prefect reveal of a NEW character. And, as I said earlier, he's doing great with RWBY in both co-writing or directing (actually not quite sure what his full duties are for RWBY) and for voice acting. He quickly made Juan a loveable character without shoving him in the audience's face. Very jealous. I would love to be a voice actor someday (might even do something revolving that on this site someday), and so far every actor in RWBY is making it look better and better. Can't wait to see what Miles has next in store for everyone.

      If there was an award for best community...

      2 years ago

      I really love this site more and more everyday. I haven't had a single bad experience here yet (except for JJ commenting on my page and almost giving me a heart attack, but even that turned out fine). I'm very jealous of people like Caleb and Barbara who have the job of managing this community and finding ways to improve it all the time. All I can say to them is job well done!

      2 years ago

      I think we can all agree that this show is probably the best thing ever right? I was hooked by the first episode and now I'm juts sitting at my computer waiting for every new episode.

      Truly a Personal Journal

      2 years ago

      I need to get something off my chest. I want to put a disclaimer that this is not me begging or trying to get pity, I'm just admitting something. For about a year now, I've been obsessed with the idea of getting a job at RoosterTeeth. I would honestly do anything in my power to get one. I understand that whenever someone asks how to go about it, the standard answer is to "be good at something and have a portfolio." While I don't know what the standard is for being considered "good" is at RT, but I would like to think I have certain talents. Whether they need an editor, Achievement Hunter, voice actor, etc., The one problem is that I have no portfolio. But hell, even if I'm not considered good enough for one of those jobs, I would honestly do anything at that company. It is just the most compatible work environment for me, I could do any job at my absolute peak if I were to work there. I would be the damn garbage guy if they would let me. But then there's the horrible problem where I can't even be a fucking intern for them because I live in fucking Crystal River, Florida. Not only is this place a hell hole, but I'm so broke that I can't get out of here to go to Austin to even fucking VISIT! Now I really hope I would be good enough to get a job, but I don't think they've ever wanted to hire someone so much that they payed to fly them to Austin and pay for their fucking apartment. It's just so frustrating to have a dream job be so close but SOOOO fucking far. Like, I think this dream job would be the easiest "dream job" to achieve, but for me, it's almost fucking impossible. I don't know...it just pisses me off to not be able to work for this amazing company, have to wait for the spring so I can barely afford to go to community college, and hold a fucking job at Burger King. I will say one thing though, typing this all out for all none of you that will read it, it feels good to vent about it. I guess that's all I have to say...at least until the next time my fucking BK manager doesn't have my schedule ready and the thought of "this shit would never happen at RoosterTeeth" goes through my head.
