      #Fit4RTX Week Eleven - Stumble like a Drunk

      2 days ago

      Hi guys! This one is going to be done quickly over my phone on my dinner break because I have a guest from Boston and won't be home until late.


      This week I felt a bit sick so I only did five workouts instead of six. I also ate and drank non-diet things (namely pizza, BBQ and a lot of beer) more than I should have. So this week I give myself a D, but I'll be back on track 100% next week, mark me!


      Good luck with your goals for the week everyone!

      #Fit4RTX Week Ten - Clean Training, Sloppy Dieting

      1 week ago

      So this week I've gone out of my way to make sure my training is on point. I have a lot more plans this week than usual so I did my second ever run of two workouts in one day yesterday so I could sleep a bit this morning. I've also had an even more physical work at my job than usual this week so I've got some extra calorie burn. I also boosted the weights on my accessory movements, which I don't do as often as I should. If it's not a main movement I tend to leave them lie.


      That said, I did slip on the diet a little. A bit of alcohol and junk-y meals on top of my actual cheat day, and my prepped meals were chili which is already on the cusp of not being a diet-appropriate food to begin with even if it still technically fits with my usual diet methods. It's a bit of a tightrope.


      But I broke even, still 186 pounds this week so I'm fine with it. But this week I have some nice, clean ground beef and vegetables with a bit of eggs and cheese on deck fir my meals, portioned out to last me six days plus my cheat day.


      So here's to getting back on track and here's hoping my training stays just as good. If so I may hit my end-of-diet goal by the time we're halfway to the day!

      1 week ago

      So Vanna, an awesome Boston band, put out their first music video from their new All Hell album. These guys are awesome and super fun and every interaction I've had with them has been great. Add to that the production quality of this music video is miles above all the videos they've made before, so definitely give this a listen!

      Caddyshack

      1 week ago

      I am going to assert that Caddyshack is the only movie it is appropriate or needful to remake/reboot.


      Not because I like it more than the other nostalgic movies that Hollywood is trying to cash in on as new media too-slowly drowns it in it's own obsolete inadequacy (side note: Team Internet could you please hurry the fuck up?). But because oh my fucking God can you imagine Caddyshack, a charming comedy where wealthy men make casual golf bets around and involving poor people in sums larger than said poor people will ever see in their lives, as a lighthearted comedy in a post-Bush Bailout-era world?


      In a world where it's unrealistic for people in the age bracket of the poor characters to expect to get an education or own a house without signing their entire lives away in debt to the very same rich people who make up the other part of the cast Caddyshack would change from a lighthearted romp to a very dark satire or outright dark drama of how fucked Millennials are by the system.


      Basically, unlike the rest of these remakes, reboots and distant sequels (even good ones like The Force Awakens) a remake of Caddyshack would actually bring something new to the table, and that something new might be awesome. And financially, come on. You market this - a low budget movie with almost big effects before the finale - as a black comedy about wealth inequality and how many Millennials will take a chunk out of any hard-earned savings we managed to scrape out from our menial, entry-level jobs that required a college degree and three prior professional references in order to see it?


      I like this idea a lot. Fuck, I may expand on it and pitch it to Cracked later, but my RT fam got to hear it first. Thoughts?

      My Hopefully Final Thoughts About The RWBY Controversy

      2 weeks ago

      After letting it sit for a while I have more thoughts on the RWBY controversy. This is after sleeping on it, mulling it over and doing other things. I'm hoping with this I'll find everything I could possibly contribute is said, and it can be dropped and we can all go and be excellent to each other. it's a bit rambly - it was originally written piecemeal on my phone during work breaks - but I've tried to clean it up enough to be readable.


      First it looks like, while I still believe no one meant anyone any harm no matter how these things wound up happening, the ONLY completely blameless parties here are the Oum family themselves. That may be rough to hear and it's rough to say, since it seems like Shane is just a nice guy in a bad situation and I like and respect Rooster Teeth very much. We know from Kathleen Zuelch corroborating it on Twiter that these events happened, even if we don't know that Shane is right about what was going on inside the heads of the other major players. And these events are definitely bad, but the question is to what magnitude.


      However I feel the need to get into the grit of the open letter and examine it a little, since there are some things that just don't add up between the events (confirmed) and the motivations (guesswork provided by a biased source). To start, I'm not sure the implied conspiracy to remove anyone close to Monty from the show, or at least reduce their influence in order to reduce his posthumous influence, holds water. Not only did they hire his brother to voice Lie Ren, but as other people have pointed out he was close with the showrunners for a long time, and they were given even more authority after Monty died. For all that the letter painted at least people with their titles as bad guys who didn't know or care about Monty, well, that seems unlikely based on what we saw of them both before and after his death.


      Also, as Dimono pointed out in his journal this letter doesn't exactly make him look like an angel either. Basically he explains in so many words that he doesn't work well with others and is slow to adopt even the tech let alone the methods the rest of the team (that he isn't working well with) is using.


      Also one thing I don't recall Dimono mentioning is that at one point Shane mentions an outright desire to perform physical violence on "the Director," who is likely either Miles, Kerry or Gray. I understand this is a grieving man who I believe has Depression and was going through bad times, but someone deciding they want to use one person on a task who isn't the person you wanted them to use is definitely not a situation where violence is called for.


      Also, as other people have mentioned it is very presumptuous of him to say that he was the only one besides Sheena he confided in. As people (both myself and also actual smart people) have noted Miles and Kerry essentially co-created the show after the initial idea stage. Does it really make sense that his co-animator would be told more long-term story goals than the people he chose to help him write it? Kinda doesn't add up.


      Honestly though, the only thing that bothered me even without this longer stewing-in-thought about Shane's side is how he didn't just assert events (which we know from Kathleen are true) but also assigned motive, and alongside that painted everyone other than Monty with authority over RWBY with the same "faceless evil corporation out to milk one genuinely creative person's heart and soul for a quick buck" brush. Asserting that you know why other people make the decisions they do or that you know another person's real motives when they haven't explicitly stated it to you (unless you're in love or lifelong best friends or something that establishes a strong enough connection and understanding to know it) makes me uncomfortable at best, and with something as serious as how to continue a beloved dead friend's acclaimed passion project then, well, it definitely puts my teeth on edge. Neither we nor anyone but the involved parties know why the showrunners decided to change x or y, or why they opted to not bring Sheena onto the team whether or not we agree with those choices (and it appears like most people I find it weird Sheena wasn't included but unlike some others I don't find it inconceivable or somehow heretical - just something I feel could have and should have been handled better).


      Outside looking in, if you were to take all motives and emotion out of it, the story after Monty is that the company expanded the team and got new technology. A sitting employee did not work well with the team, refused to update his tech or workflow in a manner that would not cause production bumps, and this compounded with growing creative and hiring disagreements affected his and other's workflows enough that he was let go.


      Shitty situation?


      Fuck yes.


      But whether Rooster Teeth did something bad or not hinges on the omitted emotions. If they were deliberately shutting out those close to Monty in order to cheapen his vision into a shallow cash grab, refused to hire Sheena because she was his wife, changed things specifically to move away from Monty's intentions, fired Shane because he was close to him, and secretly didn't like Monty beyond his usefulness to the company up to and including pretending to mourn to drum up sales of future volumes then yeah, that's reprehensible to the extreme.


      But if they simply found themselves with a contrarian employee who constantly contested decisions made with good intentions, refused to update his workflow, refused to work with the team they were growing and acted on a sense of authority disproportionate to the amount of that he actually had all while they, too, were grieving for a lost friend, well, I'm still not sure they did the right thing. Just not as wrong a thing.


      I've been fired before which is part of why I keep talking about this, and not only that I was fired and had no other prospects. Stranded high and dry in a city halfway across the country from my entire support system with no income, no plan and no backup. Pretty nasty, right? Well imagine that, then add Depression and sprinkle on a divorce and - even if you think he brought the divorce on himself by spending all his time either working or with his dead hero and mentor's very attractive widow and brought the firing on himself by being a bad employee - that's still some hardcore, cold-blooded shit that Shane went through.


      But that said it may have been the necessary hardcore, cold-blooded shit. Sad to say.


      This is not a comfortable fact but it is a fact: Rooster Teeth is a company with something like 200 employees last time I heard someone mention a number. If someone jeopardizes a flagship production, even for the best of reasons, he puts some of those jobs in harms way. It's the "ruthless calculus" of business. There are definitely people I respect and love who think less of modern Rooster Teeth compared to what it was before simply because they are more obviously a business. I've never understood the mentality of liking something less when it becomes successful but I do understand and respect that i exists. But to me, I see people who became successful and becoming moreso doing what they love and they are dragging two hundred people up with them. I don't have to like that they're put in a position where the hard decisions of business have to be made. But I do have to acknowledge that that's how real life works.


      But above all, if you take nothing else from my ravings, take this: I stand by what I said that I think nobody had bad intentions even if only Monty and Sheena are completely blameless. So please don't attack anyone. Whether you believe every letter of Shane's message, or don't. Whether you believe Shane is wrong to make this public or not. If you read the letter and think Rooster Teeth is completely in the right. Whether you, like me and apparently a lot of people, find yourself somewhere in the middle or you are on an extreme end. Remember that Shane is going through and has gone through the wringer between losing his job and the divorce. He deserves sympathy and assistance, not attacks, especially since this letter has likely burned every potential employment bridge in animation. Remember that Sheena lost her love, and did nothing to anyone. And remember that Rooster Teeth, despite being a large company now and despite several people thinking that in and of itself means they've become bad, soulless, or unfeeling is still comprised of individual people (and the core is the same individual people it's always been) with thoughts and feelings who lost someone special in Monty as well.


      Don't go picking at wounds, help them to heal. There's a lot of us, after all, and I know from experience the RT Family can be a hell of a safety net.


      Peace.

      #Fit4RTX Week Nine - Come Up with Better Titles

      2 weeks ago

      What's up, guys?


      So this week was overall pretty low-key. My diet was on point except for on my designated cheat day when I went to Gordoughs. I had the El Camino and a Black Out with ice cream as well as some pizza afterwards.


      I am still moving back up from my deload week and the calorie deficit is finally starting to catch up with me. At the very latest after this week, when I'll have caught up with my max lifts again, I'll probably need to take two weeks on a given weight max just to make sure I have it down on everything but pullup variations (which from now on are always to progress until I can just do them all unassisted).


      Also as a final note and a bit of a reminder I'm starting a video series on Fit4RTX, and the first one is here!

      Actually super proud

      2 weeks ago

      Well then.


      Okay RT Family, ya done good so far. Let me outline what so far looks like:


      People read the letter. Not skimmed, read. They took in the information Shane provided.


      They took a minute to digest it before saying things. They looked for corroboration, and Kathleen tweeted that the events outlined in the letter did happen, but didn't comment (as of this point) on the motives of the major players.


      Then, WITHOUT attacking Shane (which is not something people should be doing) people pointed out several things. That, *if* it was a deliberate and malicious thing then shutting out Sheena was a dick move, but on a business level not hiring her whether for VA or behind the scenes work may have been sound. Yes that is uncomfortable to say. Second, that the letter has an obvious bias - this is "creative differences" and "employee and employer not matching up on a workflow level" writ large. Third, Shane seems to imply that he and Sheena were the only people who knew what Monty really wanted when Miles and Kerry were there from the beginning, literally at the conceptual stage, and that he is being unusually possessive both as regards the vision of RWBY and even the interpretation of "keep moving forward."


      I stand by what I said earlier. I think here we have someone saying something he believes to be true. He is not being malicious even if he says something that isn't right. If he is right about everything, particularly the treatment of Sheena, then someone owes some apologies. If not, then this is simply the product of hurt feelings and loss.


      But even so, I am proud of how calm the community has been. If RT makes a response then we'll know better in the morning but, if not, still remember to take this with at least a little grain of salt since this is the perspective of one person with a very specific lens with which to view the world.


      Peace out, I need sleep.

      So some thoughts and opinions on RWBY

      2 weeks ago

      By now if you care you probably saw Shane Newville's open letter to those close to Monty on Twitter. So there's a side to the story that the community hasn't heard. I wonder what the story sounds like from the people named by their titles' perspective (Director, CEO, etc - if you follow the show closely you probably know who they are even without their actual names dropped). But just for now, for those people who both follow me on this site and care about the whole thing, let's think of some stuff really quick.


      1. Take this seriously and calmly. Don't dismiss everything Shane said out of hand because you (like me) love RT, their content and their staff and want to think the best of them. But at the same time don't go apeshit whether towards Shane for bringing this up or the RT staff if you believe Shane's statement to the letter. Obviously there's hurt feelings and it's a high-emotion situation since Monty is involved, so take a breath. And remember that not everyone has the same priorities or the same way of thinking about the same situations, that some might think they are taking the right road when other people see it as the wrong one and neither are being malicious or intend to harm anyone or anything.


      2. Consider the known circumstances. Like I said, it's a high-emotion situation and there are hurt feelings. Whether the actions taken by RT in the open letter happened as described and whether the motives ascribed to them in the letter are true (more on that later) remember that they knew Monty too, and had to deal with his death. Also, we get a pretty broad view of the people involved through the personality-driven content like the podcast, so while we may not know them as well as we think we do get some grasp of their personality.


      3. Draw Your Own Conclusions. This one is going to be pretty individuated. Based on what you know you figure out what you think is true or not.


      4. Remember that we're a community. This is the most important part. We all love RT or we wouldn't be on the site, and if you care about this you probably love RWBY, but most of all remember to love each other. We banded together after Monty died, and were stronger for it than ever before. Let's not let a dispute over what he left behind tear us apart. I feel like that, more than anything else, would be a disappointment to his legacy.


      My take on the situation is as follows. As a disclaimer: Those few of the people involved I have met has only been in passing, but I am friends-of-friends with some of them as well and can somewhat assess their character by saying "people I know and respect are friends with them." I have been an RT fan for many years. Add that up and I am no more or no less an authority on any of this than any other fan. So take this or leave it as you will based on what you think or know of me.


      I think the skeleton of these events are probably true, but the ascribed motives are probably not quite there. That's a bit tricky - it's really impossible to guarantee what anyone's motives for a given action are but your own. Let me immediately put my foot in the shit as well by following that statement immediately by saying as someone who has been fired from a job unexpectedly and at a particularly bad time in my life resentment and bitterness can color your interpretation of events for a long, long time afterwards. There is nothing wrong with that but as someone who has done that I do see a little bit of it in Shane's letter, particularly when he talks about the people in charge of the show.


      Okay, so let's pick this apart. Removal of the old guard and the people who worked on RWBY in a vital yet unofficial capacity (eg. Sheena). Obviously they aren't working on it now, so that checks out. Having not been there I can't say if it was malicious or not, or if it was thought through the way Shane implies it was. So I'll just say that yes, outside looking in it's obvious that happened.


      Differing interpretations of RWBY and it's future direction and what things were and were supposed to mean. I would absolutely assume that there are those. Being, however, that none of these people ARE actually Monty I wouldn't assume either party. RT or Shane, are more right than the other (Sheena being the obvious exception, but even she wouldn't know everything point by point). After all, Miles and Kerry were his friends too, and were a part of the original creation of the show. So to say that their interpretation is "wrong" and "not Monty's RWBY" is a bit sticky. It isn't Monty's RWBY, but I would have to say that no RWBY made after his death could ever be his RWBY, just the best those working on it could do. As it stands the show brings joy to hundreds of thousands and provides more positive role-models for young women than most of this year's major films combined, but can't say if it does so in the specific way Monty intended it to.


      However the point where I definitely see the "I was fired from a job that wasn't good for me and it fucked my life up" mentality that I have is when he talks about other people and what they thought of Monty, and what they were doing to his legacy. Once again I'm going to re-disclaim: I am just a fan. A fan who has a knack for people and who has occasionally met some of the involved parties in passing, but still JUST AS OUTSIDE-LOOKING-IN AS EVERYONE ELSE.


      I have never, since Monty's death, seen any of the showrunners (Miles, Kerry and Gray are who I catch in that statement) or the RT execs (Matt and Burnie) say or do anything implying that they should be lauded for continuing his legacy, although fans do give them props for that independently. As far as I can tell they are doing their best with what they have, and their best as they see it runs counter to what Shane believes the show should be. Especially near the end of the letter there is a very strong implication that RT are using a shallow imitation of Monty's legacy as almost an ad campaign ("Monty's Torch"). However again, in the actual marketing I saw almost nothing about Monty beyond what you would expect. He was in the end credits and there were multiple visual homages, but very little "pity party"-esque "hey you should watch this show because Monty!" Of course none of us can forget Monty. He's not someone who is forgotten. But in my opinion I didn't see them using his legacy in a crass, commercial way.


      The only thing in the letter that I feel I have the ability to straight-up dispute is his implication that the love they show Monty is all lip service to drum up sympathy sales, and that they didn't actually like him all that much. Everyone processes grief differently, first off. It's obvious that Shane was close to Monty, idolized him even. And who wouldn't, in his place? But Gray's face at Monty's memorial at RTX 2015 will be forever burned into my memory - there was nothing false about the loss there. Maybe their love for him was different, but I have no doubt in my mind that the showrunners and execs loved Monty too and were hit hard by his loss.


      So overall, do I believe Shane's open letter? In part, yes. In other parts, not quite. Do I believe he is being malicious when he says the things I don't think are true? Absolutely not. I think he is telling the truth as he sees it and can't be faulted for doing so. My full assessment of the entire situation is, to be as succinct as possible, that a terrible tragedy happened. As tragedies do, it echoed both on immediate practical levels and also on the emotions of those involved, which affected their perceptions and decisions. These fractures were then made worse by a simultaneous split between interpretations of Monty's work and intentions as well as the ever-eggshell-floored intersection between being artists and being a business.


      Barring an official statement from anyone in RT we only have Shane's side of the story to go on. But from what I know of the other people involved, which again is mostly just what everyone knows with one slight caveat of "you can judge someone by the caliber of his friends," I don't think there was malice. Just sadness, hurt feelings, misunderstandings and loss.


      So that's my take. You can agree or disagree if you want, it makes no difference to me. Things are what they are and none of us have all the facts. Maybe, if RT does say something, I'll do another post about that then. I usually don't weigh in on internet drama (I'm 27, getting too old for that shit) but since this is a topic that I and my friends care about, involving people that I and my friends care about, I figured I could toss my hat in.


      But above all, stay calm, stay collected, and think hard. The RT Community is a wonderful thing and I don't want to see it torn apart by infighting over who did what to who. So be excellent to each other, okay?

      #Fit4RTX Week Eight - Deload and Progress

      3 weeks ago

      So this week was deload week, which means I was lifting slightly lighter to give my body some active rest, work on getting my form more on-point and letting my body acclimate to it's new strength.


      Oh also I semi-achieved one of my goals.


      I say semi-achieved because I didn't do five sets of five (or ten straight) pullups with good form. I did five sets of five parallel bar chinups, a much easier variation, with basically okay form for five sets of five on Wednesday.


      So I did wind up doing unassisted chinups, just not as well and not in the variation I wanted. So there's still a ways to go, but progress is being made, and it's a step closer to what has been a goal of mine for a long time!


      Also, be on the lookout for something new from me on the Fit4RTX front this week. Something video-y.

  • About Me

    I write books. That will always be the most important part.

    When I'm not writing books, I like the usual, I guess. Reading, video games, etc., even though the writing and the day job means I only get to play those rarely.

    Huge fantasy nerd. It's what I love to read and what I love to write, but as you can see above historical and sci-fi are also favorites even though I've written sci-fi only rarely and my only attempt at historical fiction was the worst book (thankfully unpublished) I'd ever written.

    I prefer to know people before friending them, either in person or through interacting meaningfully on the site, FYI.

      Definitely makes sense. Definitely annoying when writers do that.

      It's so weird to me that they keep creating these characters and/or writing them up in that way, when I feel like readers have voiced enough of a distaste for that kind of character/writing. It's almost like they don't realize that not everything has to be super-amazingly-impressive for us to like them. I like ice cream, but it doesn't have to blow my mind for me to enjoy eating it.

      Hey @Tropes @halo_dudette and @Jteeth

      We got like a week to go, and I'm just wondering if it's a good idea to maybe exchange cell phone numbers so people can coordinate upon arrival and stuff?

      But other than that, it might be good to just go over everyone's arrival plans and stuff like that.

      I personally will be arriving in Toronto (pending no delays on the train) on Train 57 at Union Station downtown at 3:35pm on Thursday the 6th. I'm leaving on Monday the 10th at 5:35pm. When I get there I'm just gonna walk to the hotel, it's maybe a 20 minute walk so I should be at the hotel for 4pm

        I'll likely be there later than that. I'm taking a bus to Dundas Station. Last year we were delayed at customs and so arrived at 10, but the scheduled arrival is 8PM. I can see the hotel from Dundas, it's no more than a five-minute walk.

      Hey man, saw your post from PAX, and you're doing RvBTO, but are you also hitting up RTX this year?

      • Oaktownpull

        Right on. Hopefully the planets will align and RTX will happen.

        I wish! I only had the money for one, and since this is going to be the last RvBTO I'm going to do that this year and then RTX 2013 instead.

        Or, well, that's what's probably going to happen. There is a sequence of increasingly unlikely events that, if they all happened just so, would allow me to do both. I'm not holding my breath though :(

        Yeah, someone once said that seeing the strings might make it worse, but instead I read books that I already liked and say "AAAH! I see what you did there!"

        Lycantropes, i.e. tropes about werewolves!

        TV Tropes has done both, just like Reddit... For some reason, understanding WHY something is funny makes it way funnier. It also makes me much better at perceiving writing mechanics.

        Ruined or enriched?

        Funny thing, I actually didn't get this name based on my uncanny awareness of tropes. I got it because a British man in a chatroom couldn't spell "lycanthropy."

      The soundtrack is going to come out piecemeal on iTunes, and those versions will be the OST versions. So, they will be very much like what you hear in the episodes. For the CD, I will probably do something similar to the Revelation CD, where I will make extended fancier versions .

      Hey!

      I really really want to thank you for such kind words. Actually eleventy billion aren't saying it, it's just been a nice handful of people who have noticed.

      It's very much appreciated, I am so very glad that you like it. I can't wait for you to have the whole CD (soon, soon!!).

      Thanks again and best wishes,
      Jeff

      Yeah, see, I didn't actually do that. I joined the group and everyone (all two of them) vanished. So now I'm "in charge."
