      After last week's epic 20 minute vlog, I am going to make this week's episode more of a relaxed affair. It's been a long time since we did a Q&A , so submit some questions and I'll answer the ones that get the most mods. So mod up the ones you like!


      Don't make the questions just for me. I will try to find people if you have specific questions for them. No guarantees on that though; we have five different things shooting today. 


      If you don't have an RT account, you can also send your questions to 


      burnie on twitter

      burnie on instagram


      And these will be posted on the vlog, so edit your typos and stop embarrassing your mother. 


      If for some reason you don't want your username and avatar displayed, please include that in the comment and I will just read your question.

    • Public vlog

      Today's vlog will be a bit of a rerun for most FIRST members but there is an announcement at the start of the video. In a nutshell, the Vlog will now be available to the public after a window on FIRST. We are also going to start producing it on a weekly basis. We plan to make a FIRST only vlog that is more of a "state of the union" for Rooster Teeth. 


      Thanks for the suggestion that the Monday vlog should be the one to introduce the public to the production. I agree it's a good representation.


      PS there are some new shots in the Monday Vlog. I spent time with a couple more groups to get a more complete view of the company.

      So the shows are still coming out pretty regularly, but most of the office has been quiet these last few days with most people taking vacation this week. There's still a skeleton crew of hard working employees making sure that the shows we recorded for this week go out on time. 


      How is your week before New Years going? Any plans for New Years Eve?

    • Game Time with Loud Mouth McGee

      This week marks the end of Game Time. I recorded a bonus episode with Greg Miller a few months ago and it just came out today. The audio on it was really glitched and Andrew Blanchard worked with it on-and-off for two months before he was able to edit the video. 


      I loved talking to Greg. He has such a unique story with his rise to prominence on IGN, his health crisis and the incredible independent success of Kinda Funny. Give it a listen and let me know what you think. 


      Game Time was fun, but I think there's a better format for long form interviews. One of my many plans for 2017...

      Last night's live podcast was a blast. I am trying to convince Patrick, Gus and Bethany to put together a show (or a night of shows) in Las Vegas some time in 2017. It would probably be 21 and up. I am curious who might be interested in that.



    • To Do Lists

      burnie

      I love To Do Lists. I make them for everything. This week (if you start a week on Sunday) has been killer for me. It's probably the same part of my brain that likes getting achievements. 


      I over-list everything, that way I always feel the progress of moving forward. For instance this week I am selling my truck so instead of "Get Truck Ready To Sell" I have six different items like "Get truck title", "Clean out glove box", "check fluids in truck", etc. I feel like I have done 80 things in the last two days. 

      I even have a special app that gives me recurring To Do's like house stuff and creative projects like "write five pages" that way I can see how long it's been since I did those.

      1.  I know that they are still selling them in Australia and New Zealand on Hanabee.com & Rooster Teeth Australia.  


      2.  I want to buy it but... Rooster Teeth Australia & Hanabee.com doesn't ship to the USA, witch "SUCKS" because I would pay the shipping costs just to have all The Team RWBY Plushies.


      So why.... Why are you discontinuing RUBY & YANG when so many people want them... WHY Burnie WHY?

      Hello Mr. Burns,

      I am sure you get this a lot from fans. A few years ago I was shown a video showing an Animated Adventure, and fell in love with Rooster Teeth. It was not long before I finally sat down and watched Red vs. Blue (I cried more times than I can count), and that was followed by RWBY, Rage Quit, listening to the podcasts, and so on. I just want to say I think you are doing a wonderful job, and how Rooster Teeth has been a wonderful discovery in my life and I look forward to the future.


      Also I completely agree with you regarding your loathing of what I affectionately refer to as, "Satan's calculator," the chip readers.


      Keep up the good work!!

      Safe travels!

      If you want a reason to get out of the Apple ecosystem further, as discussed on recent podcasts, Project Fi on Nexus/Pixel phones sends texts to any phone over WiFi. 


      It makes calls over WiFi and when you don't have wifi but you have cellular service it uses that. 


      The whole plan is cheap. $20 base plan plus $10 per gig of data domestic or international (same rate), and international calling rates vary but are around $0.02 a minute. 


      More info: https://fi.google.com/about/ra...

      Or ask Adam Kovic who uses it as well.

      Hey Burnie, I left this comment on the Post Show comments, but haven't seen you post the journal on it yet.


      Here is my pre-mature response to your journal:

      I re-listen to the entirety of the RT podcasts annually. I always find it interesting how random things get produced from discussions on the RT podcast from years ago. I don't need to be on-site to work on this, and blog postings with topics being available through SEO results can help determine the most popular items. This can also be background stuff, and not have to change the way the podcast is uploaded or viewed.

      Hi Burnie!

      I didn't know who to contact about this so I thought I would try you.. I don't want to complain as I have only recently become a sponsor but the reason for this is because of this complication. For your viewers outside of the US we are not gaining very much from becoming a sponsor as the streams are at odd times and therefore cannot be watched live (a gain of being a sponsor) which makes us watch it at the same time as non-sponsors. Also the inflation of US dollars to AUS or other dollars usually makes it a lot more expensive on our side of things especially with the introduction of the double star sponsorship, I would love to do this but at around $500 a year AUS depending on the financial market makes this venture way too expensive!

      So maybe you should think about making some content for us or think about other ways you could repay us for our contributions?

      Thank you for your time and I hope your company keeps flourishing as it has in the recent years.

      Hey Burnie!


      I just had an idea for a Million Dollars But card. It would be a "thats a lot of money" card. There would only be 2 or 3 in the whole set, and you would play it at the begginging of the round. I have thought of two different options for the card:

      1. The user get to play two answers to double his chances of winning

      2. Whoever wins the round gets two points instead of one


      Hope you like the Idea!

      Figured you would see this over Twitter. On the podcast you mentioned the unboxing videos and their massive numbers where they don't necessarily equate to products being sold.


      My daughter, who is 4, loves these videos. Generally, they consist of little toys being opened in the plastic easter eggs or whatever. We buy here things here or there from the videos if it's something that really sparks her interest and she can basically explain everything about that toy.


      Now the views thing. I think these videos have so many views and no one really talks about them is because parents essentially use them as babysitters to get little things done around the house or whatver. Meaning if you have thousands of parents doing this everyday you can get millions of views pretty easily without any sort of commitment from the parents to really purchase anything.


      The Chewbacca mask video related to so many sales because it wasn't necessarily kids watching the video quietly. It may have started as that way but parents who heard the laughing and stuff from the video thought it was funny and then shared it making it blow quicker than the "shameful" here kid watch this while I clean the kitchen kind of video (which if you've ever spent time watching some have an almost ASMR quality with soft talking and crinkly paper/foil) that parents may not want to share because they're essentially using it to pacify their kids pretty much.


      I've spent a lot of time watching these videos with my daughter and trying to figure what the fuck makes them so popular. After asking a dozen or so of my parent friends and finding out they all let their kids watch the videos and we have never really discussed it more than that it's pretty much the conclusion I've drawn is that the unboxing videos feel bad because they're not "educational" at all (my daughters speech is miles ahead of kids her age and I believe it's because of the videos) while they'll share the Chewbacca video because it's cute and funny because it's a mom having more fun with the toy than her kids.


      Also that mom has now been on James Corden and had a photoshoot at Facebook with a guy in a Chewbacca outfit. So, there's that too.


      Sorry so much text again I've thought way too much about this

      Wow! This is as close to being a rockstar as you may ever come. The love that this community has for you and this company that you created is astronomical. I wonder what that feels like. I've been watching the dollar amount climb and it is amazing to me the potential power that you wield. Remember with great power.....yadda yadda yadda.

      So I'm at the scuba argument in the podcast and so its not the scu part of the SCUBA that you should be focused on. It's the uba that makes that sound. Because I'm going to scuba of the coast of Cuba, then go play my Tuba. And Incubate, that's close. Only time it doesn't work is when its part of a prefix, subatomic for example. So to sum up, English is stupid, we should talk in numbers, or not at all. I would put this on twitter but then you would only block me and I would have to sign up for twitter. love

        1 year ago

        SCUBA isn't a word, it's an acronym, so this argument is still pointless. Because U stands for "Underwater," and G stands for "Graphics," there's no logical correlation between the word and its usual pronunciation; if nobody says "Scuhba," then there's no reason people can't say "Jiff."

        In this case, it falls down to the person who came up with the term to define how it's said correctly, and individuals can say it however they like based on what sounds best to them.

      Just finished watching the podcast. What you are referring to with the planes is TCAS (traffic collision avoidance system) used by commercial air traffic. The system essentially communicates between both planes and will give the pilots a directive. Either climb or descent. For general aviation (planes that do not have TCAS) if they are proceeding head on both pilots should break to the right to avoid a collision. Thats all I got, love the podcast.

      I got a code to buy the Here Earbuds and wanted to know what your opinion of them has been?

      Nope, I didn't spell it wrong, you can get onto them about that. Pretty cool though that part of my degree will be based on my understanding of RvB.

      I was told that Pyrrha will come back near the end of season 4. I really hope that it's true. I want her back with Jaune. I hope and pray that you can bring her back to the show. But if not in volume 4, then at least have Pyrrha come back and get back with Jaune soon in the show. I want to see Jaune and Pyrrha together. They deserve each other.

        ....Not that it really matters, but why is this on Burnie's profile? He doesn't have any decision making with the actual show RWBY. There are several people who are employed at Roosterteeth who makes this show what it is. Burnie is not one of them.


        Secondly, the show will be better without Pyrrha. And I don't think Pyrrha will ever return. Pyrrah needed to fight and die against Cinder Fall to show how powerful Cinder really is. That is how basic storytelling works. Our main hero, RWBY, now understands the villain she is up against, and now we, as an audience, know now too.

        Lastly, please remember it is an animated show. "Jaune" isn't real. Miles (who is the voice of Juane) is one of the few people who had a say in the decision to kill off Pyrrah. Miles is probably not broken up about it. So neither should you. Buck up old chap, things are going to be OK. Your emotional investment is what makes it a good show. But please don't use the phrases like "deserve each other" when you are talking between two animated people. They still have plans for Jaune, lets be excited and see what comes in Volume 4.

But I came across this video on Facebook of you and Joe the Cat https://www.facebook.com/1558523984464304/videos/1...

      Hi Burnie!

      The creepy stories on the last podcast reminded me of this.

      You mentioned about sleep paralysis a while back.


      My symptoms left as soon as I stopped researching lucid-dreaming, I had a fascination with it. During the peak every day I'd take about 10 minutes before I could move, the entire time I'm really willing my body to move, think trying to lift something really heavy and my body is just struggling against me.


      It's not until I hallucinate something really terrifying that I jump out of bed. Usually shadows would grow legs and turn into these centipede type things.

      I thought Roosterteeth or more specifically you have said that you hate how films are split into trilogies. However, Lazer Team is setting up for a trilogy in some ways. You introduced the "real" bad guys and basically said see you next time. We know there's going to have to be more films because of what happened in the movie. I'm not going to spoil it, but it seems like there would be a middle film where they would have to defend Earth once more.

      Congrats on Lazer Team Burnie! It was incredible and it really looked like a Hollywood film!


      On a sidenote, I just saw that it's rumoured that Grand Admiral Thrawn will make a cameo in Star Wars Rebels, which I think is the character that you wanted to see instead of General Hux in The Force Awakens? Just thought you might be interested :) http://makingstarwars.net/2016/01/rumor-the-larges...

      I don't know if you've heard of these problems Channels are having with Youtube, but Doug Walker(The Nostalgia Critic) talks about it in this video:

      They could really use your support and maybe you've been experiencing similar issues yourself.This deserves some attention and I thought I'd share it with you.
