      New things...

      1 week ago

      Lately I've been feeling mentally a bit stuck. I love playing video games, and watching and playing D&D, and think those are awesome things to enjoy. But for whatever reason I've had this urge to try new things. Or at least make myself try new things.


      So for the first time in a year I picked up and finished a book series: the Mistborn trilogy by Brandon Sanderson. It was a solid group of books, really enjoyed reading them and had a super interesting world with some excellent characters. By the third book I was beginning to get the flow of his writing so I felt like it was harder to surprise/impress me because I knew around WHEN the important twists and info would drop. But still a lot of fun to read, and as soon as I have the money I'll invest in some more of his books.

      Also I've stared to learn German! And by started I really mean I'm three tiny lessons in. But Luke speaks German, and I've a friend who also is fluent, so I thought if there was any language I had a good chance at learning because I could converse with people on a regular basis it would be that. Plus it's SUPER FUN to shout really happy things in German because it's such a harsh language.


      YOU'RE HAT IS VERY LOVELY!!!!!!


      Anything new in your world?

      For my birthday

      3 weeks ago

      Today is my birthday. I really don't want or need anything. But if you really want to get me something here are what I want from you, in this order:


      1. Go wish @Elnea a happy birthday, as of everyone I know with an April 7th birthday she is the most awesome.


      2. Someone get @lukemckay an amazing art job he will love. If you cannot get him a full time job with benefits, then go commission him.


      3. Clear skin


      4. A Critical Role shirt. Or, if it ever comes back into stock, a Gilmore's Glorious Goods shirt.


      5. A Wyrmwood Gaming dice vault. Any color/wood. Because classy.


      6. Uh...world peace?


      7. If you're at Emerald City Comic Con this weekend shoot me a message so we can try to hang out! I'm working most of the weekend but I want to try to see and hug you amazing people.

      Dungeons and Dragons and ...ME!!

      1 month ago

      Remember a few weeks ago how I talked about being a guest at Wizards of the Coast to be on their podcast? Well the podcast just dropped. YOU CAN GO LISTEN RIGHT NOW!!!


      Look, my name is in the FRICKIN URL! Isn't that so cool?!?!?


      We talk mostly about D&D, but I do drop some Rooster Teeth in there, and some other things. It would be awesome if you would go and listen and tell me if you liked it. And if you're a D&D fan you should ABSOLUTELY subscribe! And then leave an iTunes review and tell them how awesome they are and how you found out about the show because of me.


      And then go subscribe to the @GlibShark podcast and listen to Dungeon Drunks, which is what we talk about.


      Super excited!!!

      One of the most epic Warzone games ever...

      1 month ago

      Last night, in a mixed party of Wheelmen late night crew and Rooster Teeth friends,I had one of the most memorable Warzone games of my life.


      (Thanks GratFinn for saving and uploading to YouTube)


      In the middle of Random REQ Night our mixed crew ran into a coordinated team who quickly took the lead. For almost 90% of the game they had a good 200 point lead on us, sometimes even more. They spawned 2 Phaetons, several banshies, at least 5 tanks, a mantis, and a wide variety of high ranked weapons. We held the Fortress but they consistently overtook our armory, kept us pinned, and were on track to win by a lot.

      Through teamwork, some excellent team shooting, a few lucky REQs, and a LOT of callouts we took back our armory, pinned them back against theirs, and took Warden Eternal to tie the game. Then cleaned up a few leftover bosses and consolidated our teamfire into the Fortress to pull a victory from the very jaws of defeat!

      It was epic. Thank you @gi_goku @James @Newbs GRat Punisher, and everyone from the Halo Wheelmen!

      A Trip To See Wizards

      1 month ago

      Yesterday I took a trip down the road to visit Wizards of the Coast, the company that makes Magic The Gathering and Dungeons and Dragons. The reason I got to go on this magical journey is because all the fans of Dungeons and Dragons and Drunks contacted Greg Tito when he asked about people he should invite on the podcast. So after a few weeks of conversations and scheduling I found myself standing outside the office building housing THE WORLD'S GREATEST ROLEPLAYING GAME.


      https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CcgFtz0UAAUOjes.jpg


      I was only there for about 2 hours, and one of those hours was in a soundproof office converted into a recording studio for podcasts. But the whole experience was amazing. Greg and fellow co-host Shelly Mazzanoble were incredibly kind and welcoming, and when the podcast began easy to talk with and asked excellent questions. When it was over Greg took me on a brief tour of the D&D part of the studio where I saw art EVERYWHERE! No pictures though, just to make sure I didn't accidentally snap something that was under NDA. But trust me, around every corner was full size fantastic pieces or smaller concept art and all of it made me want to roll a character right there.


      Then I was showered with swag, some of which we'll be giving away on the podcast, thanked, and got to take the fun picture in front of the GIANT DRAGON. And then I was back out in the real world, head spinning, wondering if that was an alternate dimension I'd just been sucked into.


      The episode I recorded will come on sometime in the next month, and I'll make sure to announce as soon as I know. For now you should go subscribe to the official D&D podcast and get yourself prepped. We talk about a TON of D&D related topics (and a bit of the Bachelor) and because the history of Dungeon Drunks is tied to RTX I chat about Rooster Teeth a bit as well.


      Thanks you to everyone to wrote in asking for me to be on the podcast. It was a fantastic time and I can't express how much I appreciate you're confidence in me!

      Critical Role as Music

      2 months ago

      Turning names or phrases into music has been a tool of composers for centuries, most famously by Johann Sebastian Bach to put his name in his own works. There are a variety of ways that letters can be turned into music notes, and once complete a name can be transformed into a phrase with unique and surprising musicality.


      I've mention before here but I'm a HUGE fan of Critical Role, the show where professional voice actors play D&D on Geek and Sundry. Because all the people involved are professional actors, specifically voice actors, it's some of the best role playing I've ever seen. I've called it Professional D&D Playing before, and if that sounds cool then go check them out.


      So I thought it'd be fun to take the names of the members of Vox Machina and turn them into music. Then I performed and recorded the resulting phrase on oboe. For fun I also did this for the cast member names, as well as turned the team name "Vox Machina" into a three part series of variations. There were some challenges along the way; Percy's full name is a half a page of music by itself, and a few phrases are missing the musical equivalent of an apostrophe! I took some liberties with phrasing, key, and style, to offer a personalized musical name.


      You can listen to and download the mp3s on my site here. And if you're interested in having the same treatment done to your name let me know! For RT fans I'll do it for free, though if you'd like to donate to my poor musician fun I always have my case out!

        Huh. Well that's weird.


        What my post was suppose to say was this:


        I just finished listening to the last Glib Shark, and from what you are saying is that renegade Sheppard sounds like the D&D equivalent to a Lawful Chaotic character to me. (I have never played any of the Mass Effect games but I have wanted to). And that I agree with you that Cinebarre is an amazing theatre. No kids + drinks = a great movie experience.

        I'm kinda in love with this. I don't know if it'll sound half as good on oboe as clarinet, but now I need to find sheet music....maybe Martha will play the accordion for me.
