Happy Birthday Rooster Teeth, can't believe it's been 13 years for you.
Seems like yesterday you turned 10.
For me, I've only known you since 2006. I may have forgotten alot of stuff about school but I'll never forget when I first watched RvB for the first time.
My friends kept talking about playing Halo at his place sometime. I had never heard of it at that point but back then I was way into sci fi stuff so I was curious. They also talked about a show called Red vs Blue. It sounded interesting considering the quotes he'd say. And that he called me dirt bag a few times. So once summer came, we played Halo 2 on his xbox 360 he just got and whilst I was awful I had fun. I remember that because I only had a PS1 at that point an Xbox controller seemed so weird to me. After playing a couple rounds we broke watching the first RvB episodes. It seemed interesting so I decided I'd watch but to put in context, I started watching it as season 4 wrapped up. I wanted to watch it marathon style but i had no cash for DVDs at that time but there was a way to watch like that.
Before YouTube was bought by Google, they had another service called Google Video. I know, that takes you back a bit, doesnt it? I know RvB was on YT but GV had the full seasons in full feature form. 4 seasons and I was hooked. News soon broke about Season 5 and that the best way to watch it is on their website RoosterTeeth.com so September 2006 I joined the site.
I never knew how much this site and its content would change my life. And the fact that I still watch the stuff today is mind boggling. Its got me through rough times, held onto my hand during the good times, influencced me to make my own stuff and I cant imagine my life without it now.
And this year has been a big game changer. With the release of Lazer Team and the other things like Day 5 and Crunch Time coming out later this year, its safe to say that Rooster Teeth is only going to get bigger and better and after 13 years still staying as fresh as it was in Blood Gulch we can't be happier.
Also this year has been a great year for me, seeing my name in the sponsor credits of LT whilst in the cinema with my uncle and Miles thanking me for sending some anime stuff for Fan Service.
So, cheers to you, here's hoping for a bigger and brighter future, but for now, happy 13th everybody.
