      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

      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.

      14 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.

      Good news is that Blake and Matt made news alerts for all the front page posts so I don't have to use my journal as a lame alert system. That's really great.

      The bad news is that someone must have abused the member or modding system because The Hand woke up and is about ready to whip the crap out of someone. We saw The Hand really early in the Beta Test, but then The Hand went away and now The Hand is back. Great.

      Uhhhh.... I had the weirdest dream last night.

      Here are the main things I remember.

      1) I'm at disneyland.

      2) There is a large arcade that some annoying kid kept on bragging about how he was so exited to work at disneyland,

      3) I'm walking through the park and I hear a Journey band cover, ( I think the song was separate ways..) and I noticed the voice sounded familiar. After making it to the theatre the song was coming from, I see Gus, Geoff, YOU, and Matt, playing the song on an arena stage.

      Gus was on the vocals and the keyboard, Geoff was on guitar, YOU were on drums and Matt was the bassist, and you sounded PHENOMENAL!

      While I would pay money to see this, I sadly know that it is in all likelihood not possible or going to happen.

      just thought you ought to know...

      Burnie have you ever thought of putting the audio from every RvB episode on a CD so people can listen to RvB while in their car on a long road trip or something.

      Hey Burnie. I read that you mostly right and direct red vs. blue. Now to me that seams like a lot of work for one man but you still manage to make every episode awesome. Great Job :) Anyway I thought I would give you some help. So I wrought a Red vs. Blue P.S.A that I was hoped I could send in and you would maybe take a look at in and see if you like. And again Great job on RvB This far. Keep up the good work :)

      Hey Burnie. This guy proposed to his girl friend via a Portal 2 mod. I thought you might like to check it out. He even got valve and and the woman who does the voice of GLaDOS in on it. It is pretty awesome.

      Hey Burnie. I have a question. I just watched "Gamer Etiqette" and was almost knocked out of my chair when the opening music started playing. I missed the old Blood Gulch theme alot and hearing it at the begining of "Gamer Etiqette" got me wondering if you are going to use the theme for PSAs only or the rest of season 9.

      i'm not an avid RT site commenter but i need to know!

      Hey Burnie,

      I've been playing around with the RT iphone app, which is a fun way to connect with the site.

      One complaint: when I look at the news blog on the app, I don't know how to see who made each post. Sometimes I can infer a voice, but that's far from the norm. I find I often try to remember to come to the full site when I get back to a real computer so that I can see whose voice I'm reading.

      Small fries, I know. Keep up the good work. And get yourself into the podcast for the full hour more often! Been missing you there lately.
