      So RvB Season 3 writing is going very well. It's nice because we pretty much now what we can and can't do in the engine now, so the writing gets a lot tighter. I wrote a bit on Sidewinder tonight that should give Matt fits though. The hardest part about Episode 39 was finding the right mix. In Season 2, we had this long story leading up to Doctor O'Malley, but this time around we have several distinct storylines that can be encapsulated in just a few eps. Should be a nice mix of Season One and Two.

    • Nico and Burnie late night convos

      burnie

      So, I had another round with Nico tonight on AIM and on the phone -- we were talking about all the different aspects of Season 3 (at least, as they stand now) and I was giving Nico my usual lousy advice. It's a great realtionship, I babble at him in my totally uneducated way and he somehow interprets it. I sound like all the producers in LA that I hate. For Strangerhood we boiled the theme music down to "Three's Company theme song meets the Friends theme" and he nailed it. Tonight we got one piece down to "Flight of the Bumblebee meets Benny Hill". Can't wait to hear that.

    • My friend Joel Heyman is dumb.

      13 years ago

      burnie

      So I was reading this thread about Caboose's Evolution and I got to thinking about dear, sweet, dumb Joel Heyman. You know, it's a great thing that guy is good looking, because he would be in a lot of trouble otherwise. When we are at PAX signing DVD's, Joel was at the very end. Our signatures usually have our names and the our character name in quotes. Mine looks like this:

      Burnie Burns
      "Church"

      Some people write their character's T-shirt number as well, but I think that's just lame. Anyway, at some point during the signing, gfunk realized that Joel has been signing his DVD's:

      Joel Heyman
      "Joel"

      Apparently, that's the way he has always signed them. When we asked him about it, he actually admitted a more embarassing fact -- for the first few episodes of Red vs Blue, Joel thought he was playing Donut. Even after the episodes came out. He even registered an account on the old forums as Donut and made some posts as Donut.

      Joel Heyman, I love you.

      Thanks for the private messages, but I am aware that people can see the topics I make in moderated/hidden forums when they view my profile. It's something I am aware and I will make sure to post topic titles that are spoiler free and don't give away anything. I have asked the other mods to do the same.

      There is going to be little quirks like that for at least the first few months, we're all having to adjust to our new home. The good news is that Blake and Matt are more than capable of handling almost any request and I think the RT staff has a good enough understanding of the underlying technology to understand what's possible in the current system and what constitutes a major overhaul.

      As always, send your feature requests to me and I will archive them for the web development team.

      I think I just figured out why the layout of the Reach Blood Gulch seems so weird to rvb fans and you guys; when you were shooting in Valhalla, the reds were by the ocean and the blues were up against the wall. Now, in keeping with the traditional Blood Gulch layout, its reversed so its correct, and yet still feels wrong.

      Heya, you talk about loving anything with a (good) sci-fi premise, and drama mini-series, kinda like Band of Brothers. If you haven't already seen it, you should find time to watch some portion of Torchwood: Children of Earth. Or Miracle Day, though the former is more digestible. Judging purely by your tastes in entertainment, dark, gritty, intelligent, and real sci-fi with quirks is directly up your alley of things you'd love. You should try an episode if you can, don't let the wolf-chilli argument that it's British put you off.

I think its wrong for them to be here when people should buy the music and see the videos on your site and Itunes. He has the whole of Season 8s soundtrack. I have no idea why this guy hasn't been sued

        I'm subscribed to him, and while I do disagree with what he's doing, he's also creating his own content to go with some of the tracks. I don't necessarily believe this justifies it, but it still shows that he's not just blatantly posting the music. Plus, a large amount of YouTube users post the music on YouTube, not just this person.

    • evanx275h

      Hey Burnie. Just got through reading some of the comments on the newest episode of RvB (great episode by the way, Monty keeps getting better and better)... and apparently YouTube commenters have finally infected the site. I remember back when Season 8 was first coming out there were logical people on here. Now those people are being overshadowed by noobs that barely know a thing about the series. It really sucks.

      Hey Burnie, i just suggested an idea to Jeff Williams and he liked it, for you guys to perhaps make a Tex shirt with the last line of "On Your Knees" written on it, from s9ep10 ("if you f**k with Tex you'll be on your knees for sure"). It's just if you guys did make it I know I would definitely buy it smiley1.gif

      I watched your panel at Halo Fest online. You guys had talked about RTX and filming a short or immersion video. Is it possible to have some people working behind the scenes instead of being on camera at RTX? I'm sure there are people like me who would rather be behind a camera instead of in front of it. Just a thought. :)

But I'm going to shave this Sunday and start growing it again. That gives us a little under two months. If you can beat me, I'll pay for your drinks on the Saturday night ;)

You guys have made the last nine years ever so much more entertaining for so very many of us, and it's greatly appreciated.

      Hey Burnie,

      I have a question, and I apologize if you've been asked this already.

      About agent Carolina, is there a North or South in front of that? Or did the Carolina's resolve their differences and band together to make one state of Carolina? And if the latter is true then that would make there be 48 states (since the Florida incident). And since there is 49, (confirmed earlier in the series) does that mean that another state was added? If so, did the District of Columbia (D.C.) upgrade to a State, or did Puerto Rico finally become a state?

      Thanks for creating a kick-ass series. You are a fricking GENIUS.

      BURNIE PLEASE READ THIS!:

      Have a great idea! In the special features of Red vs. Blue Season 9 Disc (when it's done) you should add a selection called "Just Freelancers" which when you click on it, it starts season 9, but it's just the freelancer part of it. So I will show North and South on the oil rig and then once they arrive back at the space station, it skips right to the part where North and Wash are talking, then goes to the training session with Tex vs. York, Wyoming, and Maine. And so on. No Sarge, Grif or any of them. Then another selection that is "Just Red vs. Blue" which of course just has the original gang. No freelancers except Tex whenever she shows up at Blood Gulch.

      so for my first day in college i used the drunk tank as a reference...we were talking about evolution and some guy said that we were the only animals to really evolve and all that junk. i mentioned that there were rattlesnakes that have learned not to rattle and because of it they are living longer and getting bigger and told the guy to suck it. that has to have been one of my favorite podcasts when Joel was talking about his brother's snake haha!

      My name is Doc, Not my real name its just a nickname because if it was that would be wizard. But that is not the point. the point of me writing to you is... My friends and I are making a machinima called green team. And in the story and the shorts we will sometime make little incompetent quotes from RvB. For example someone from my show will say "do you ever wond..." and gets shot in the head for the fear of getting sued by you guys. This joke will pop up around the show sometime. And now the big question...May we use the incompetent quotes idea for the our show, please answer back it would be a big help.
