      So whilst I'll have been a site member for 10 years come a couple days from now, I want to talk retrospectively about how this growing media production company- or more community has effected me.

      Sit tight, this is a big one.


      Why am I here?


      Yeah, kind of hard to resist the reference but I'm always doing reference jokes that so few, if any, understand. 

      Anyway, for me this all started back when YouTube was still young, so young, in fact, that Google had yet to buy them. This was when Google Video was still around. Anyone remember that? No? Just me then. Will come back around to that.

      Picture this, I was 14 years old and I had not long chose the subjects I was going to enroll for my GCSE qualifications, (Double) Science & History GCSE, and BTEC Art . I think the only thing I could get out of that would be to create Doctor Who fiction and fan art. And seeing that I be not so very much clever, it wouldn't be good. My friednds were much smarter than I, and because of that I didn't really see them in many classes, Well I could say that by being with them, I look smarter, and I made them look even smarter but I don't think that was going to help in anyway. But my friend Alex had a birthday party over the summer holidays which involved, you guessed it, playing Halo multiplayer. I dont remember much of these games, apart from playing double teams, I was paired with Myran who was the better player of the group (Another instance of making me look good) and after getting in at least... 1 good kill, we wiped the floor with our apposing team.

      OK, so lets get back to the main story. After playing a few games, we watched some Red vs. Blue episodes that happened to be on Myran's XBox that he brought round. I very specifically remember one of the first ones I saw was the New Years special from Season 4. A lot of it was funny but it was Donuts line at the end that I just bursted out laughing and kept me laughing for most of the day. 

      "I wanna make sure I watch the balls drop by midnight" "There's only ONE ball at Times Square, Donut!"  "...Whats Times Square?"

      Say what you will about that joke, but me at that time thought it was fucking hilarious.

      Since then I wanted to catch up on it all. But watching it episode by episode seemed a little tedious. As mentioned earlier, I found full season marathon style Red vs. Blue videos. Because they didn't want to lose any jokes in the end title card sections, technically it was just a simple video compilation of each season. Note that this was before I had my own money so buying the DVDs wasn't possible at this point. I might have put it on my christmas list and just never gotten it, I don't remember. After I heard Rooster Teeth was going to do Season 5, it was suggested that I sign up on the site and get it from the main source. And here I am. Stuck in the middle with you.


      Moments that will stay with me

      Considering that Rooster Teeth has made amazing content in its time, theres so many great moments to choose from. But honestly, there's been a lot of stuff this year that has made me loved this community and company more than ever.

      Back in January, I got to see Lazer Team screening at Bluewater with my uncle Dave. His knowledge of Rooster Teeth really only comes from family friends showing him videos of Slow Mo Guys. So he at least recognised Gavin (Although with that nose- ok I'll stop now) and it would be interesting to see what his thoughts on the film would be, but one thing we both have in common is our sense of humour.

      I saw the film in the early hours of the morning that day as I was a backer and I already knew I loved it and it was tied first favourite film with Hot Fuzz (So in good company).

      NO SPOILERS!

      After the film was over, Dave said he really enjoyed watching the film, his expectations was reached and exceeded, he mentioned his favourite moment was a scene that involved SFX from Pong. No spoiling.

      Say what you will about sitcoms and the laugh "track" but comedy works better with an audience. Being with a crowd of Rooster Teeth fans and community members watching was easily the best thing for this film. Especially when these people are more than likely to have contributed to the money of the film.


      Fan Service was fun to watch, but what was cool for me was that our leader of animation, Miles Luna, called me out in the 3rd "pilot" episode when I said on twitter that I would send him Ghost Stories on DVD. If you've not seen it, absolutely check out the dub. Because the show was crap, they gave the company dubbing the series freedom to say whatever as long as the character names stay the same. But I didn't want to give them Ghost Stories andlet that be the end of it. Since this was an amazon buy, and my paycheck came in good time, I decided to add to the basket My Bride is a Mermaid DVD(Great show, nice character designs, very funny, has western world jokes that we can get like one of the mermaids father is basically the terminator. Funny story, that dad in the sub is voiced by the guy who dubbed Arnie in the Terminator films for japanese.Full circle. But I just love him in episode 20. Just watch it.), POP Vynal bobblehead figure of Maka Alburn from Soul Eater (The scythe wielder that you could say share similar traits to Ruby Rose), and Assasination Classroom Vol. 1 manga (Oh my GOD I love this show. Screw Attack's Chad co-hosts DubbleTalk on FUNimation/YouTube and they cover every episode. Just shut up and watch)

      After the show was (and still is, technically) on hiatus, I've also sent the first season of Haruhi Suzumiya DVDs (it doesn't include Endless Eight but I don't think he knows about that nightmare), Hellsing Ultimate 1-4 BluRay (The animation is brilliant, but they have the budget for it) as well as the fan art of Miles, Gray, Kerry, Cole & Stan.


      April 27th, London, RWBY Vol. 1 Screening. Now, I own the BluRay and have seen it a number of times. If I'm honest Vol. 1 was weaker compared to Vol 3 but in all fairness, that happens in production and there is that thing of it'll be better next time. But I went anyway, audibly blubbered whenever I saw Pyrrah and Penny. I remember towards the end of the screening, there was a line said to Penny "You're time will come" and I made a weeping sound. How can you not when you already know? I think that was something interesting about these screenings, because We've most likely seen all volumes, we can make these jokes and laugh about them. It's like those screenings of Tommy Wiseau's The Room, You say certain lines with them, you make jokes about whats on screen and have fun with good people. I was a little shy to talk to anyone after the screening, I felt as though everyone knew each other and I went by myself. Put me at a convention, I'll make friends no problem but a small screening, oddly enough I had trouble getting myself out there and have a conversation. Not that I was intimidated or anything I knew they were RT fans like me but it felt different.


      One real surprise this year was Day 5. Years of being on the production line and it finally got made. But to me, it wasn't just the fact that I really love the show, nor was the fact that Episode 1 came out on my birthday, what really made this special was talking to the cast and crew involved with the show on twitter. Jesse, Steph, Walker (I got no response from Davi Jay but respect to him all the same, certainly would give Morgan Freeman a run for his money in a fight over the sexiest voice) Lee Eddy, Joel, Jessica, Katie, Jen (I cannot stop saying nice things about Jen, she is awesome) Anna Hullum, OH yes Shannon McCormick and Aaron Spivey Sorrells who had a scene that I really loved, I wish I could tell you, I'm sure there's plenty more but just the cast and crews response on twitter has made this show that much more enjoyable. Its been great commentary but I'd love to hear more on the BluRay release. Thank you all SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much.


      I've only just recieved them, but I got Million Dollars But card game, along with signed cards from Burnie, Babs and Blaine. Those signed cards will NOT be for play though.


      Another thing from Lazer Team, a week after initial home entertainment release, I went to HMV and noticed the film was ranked 29. I know Batman v Su- No, let's not lie about that fucking title: Dawn of Justice was out the same week so was up against stiff competition... even though Dawn of Justice was shite.To be fair, Lazer Team only got a couple days of screening in the UK from Tugg, and there was no big advertisement for it as such. Considering the other films, I'm proud it made the charts. And that it beat a shitty sharknado-esque film.

      I posted a photo on twitter about it, fortunately Burnie saw it. Scratch that, let's be honest and call THIS what it really was: Senpai noticed me!


      Also, just recently at ALcon, I decided to put some stuff in for the charity gala. All the money raised goes to Epilepsy Action, as they say on their website, "We exist to improve the lives of everyone affected by epilepsy" and it's worth mentioning that this is a charity near and dear to us at ALcon as a member of AnimeLeague passed away at the beginning of the year because of epilepsy.

      Since I got RvBX BluRay I sold of all my old RvB DVDs from 1-10, sold the limited edition RWBY art book from Japan, and the one thing that was the toughest thing to part with, Lazer Team Blu Ray with the cover signed by Michael Jones. It was a lot of money to get that but I got another copy (Actually at one point I had 3 in total, sponsored edition with cast commentary which I'm a nerd for commentaries and 2 of the extended cut with bonus features). I knew that the signed copy would get more for the charity though so I decided to stop making selfish excuses and just put it up for auction and, if memory serves me well, these items each hit around £50 for the charity. I hope I get a chance to meet Michael and get him to sign my current copy. And I'll apologise. But I'm sure he'd understand.


      And then there's today. I noticed a tweet from RTUK saying Jon would have a meetup in London. Luckily I'm an hour away by train, I had a day off and had no plans until this came up so of course I went. Would've been cool to see Bella as well but can't be helped.

      It was great to meet a nice group of people before hand and chat any nonsense. We got in line, one by one got our signatures and photos and Jon was really nice. They say all kinds of stuff about not meeting the people you watch on shows but Jon was very sweet, so much so that he appreciated a drawing I sketched up quickly even though I thought it was bad. I hate being the guy that holds up the line. Although at some points it looked like the line was at a standstill. People were moving, but more showed up of course. I sat around in a circle, talk to some nice people (Everyone that was there was beautiful, male and female, I felt like dirt in comparison.) but I'm glad I went. Got flipped off by Jon for finishing the meet up singing the On The Spot song. I'm sure he knew it was coming but I'm just glad I didn't sing at the start.

      Let me just say this, if you are ever lucky enough to get a message saying X is at here meet him and stuff, do what you can to drop everything and run to it.


      I'm sorry for the looooong talk but if you made it this far, thank you so much, I love you all.

      Hey everyone, thanks for sending me the link. I really enjoyed Fan Service a great deal. From making this fan art piece to sending stuff like Ghost Stories, My Bride is a Mermaid, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya and Assassination Classroom manga and the Maka Alburn Pop Funko figure. I did make a notion to Miles about a monthly Nye Buys segment if they cane back and Id happily gift this stuff for them.

      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.

      So for those of you who don't know, the most recent episode of Fan Service Podcast, Miles noticed my tweet about sending him a DVD of Ghost Stories dubbed because its fucking awesome and he'll love it. Not only did I send him that, I also sent My Bride is a Mermaid DVD, Assassination Classroom Vol. 1 and soon to arrive a bobble head of Maka Albarn (who has some similar traits to Ruby Rose, and in some ways not just the scythe).

      THAT and I also wanted to do some fan art of Miles (Squid Miles/Squid Girl), Kerry (Kerry-to/Sword Art Online) and Gray (Gray-ku/Dragonball series) and thanks to him retweeting that, slowly but surely my twitter is saying people like it. Technically I'm not finished with Gray-ku as I'm trying to work out a way to make him look more like Gray, but thank you all so much for this, I only hope this fuels more reason to greenlight Fan Service.

      With the recent news of his shocking demise, I cannot fathom the idea that he's no longer with us. Much with ally of his fans, I never got the chance to meet him, and yet in many ways I feel that I have. As quiet as he is on the podcast or when he's not interrupting asking whats going on or telling people this has already been told on the podcast, he had such a wise presence when referring to his work and his creative imagination was always priority even in the tightest of schedules. His work was an extension of himself and I can safely say I'm proud to be a fan and that his work, like many of us, is how we met him. I really think that there will never be anyone else like him, but after this tragedy, I know many will be inspired by him. During this difficult time, I can only say to his family, his friends, his co-workers, especially Miles, Kerry and Grey, that I wish you all the best and my condolences for such a loss but never forget to consider that you were lucky to know someone as unique as he was.

      The brightest star was behind the scenes and we miss him so much.
      Thank you for gifting us with your creativity that you happily shared with us.
      We will never forget you, Monty. I hope you know that.

      Alright, I guess thank you for giving me featured user for this time around. That desperate to find someone, you chose me, I guess, but thanks anyway.
      Whilst I'm posting, I just want to say I'm thrilled to hear Gavin s actually one of the main characters of Lazer Team, I just assumed he'd have a cameo, but no, he gets bigger. I now double can't wait to see it, and as a sponsor, it's worth the money I spent.

      The past month has been an incredible mountain that Rooster Teeth, the community and funders constantly climbed with such ease. Certainly shows that as fans, when RT needs your help, we really pull through for them. Honestly, doubts were raised about the push for Strangerhood (good luck with that) but we even got close to $2.5mil. Thank you rooster teeth for giving is the opportunity to help your project, but as alway the biggest of thanks to everyone who helped cash in. We all cannot wait for what is to come for the future of RT.

      I'm really ecstatic that the fund raiser for Lazer Team has blown up as much as it has, I certainly hope we can stretch it to 2 million at least. That has been the best news today.

      But with this good news comes some bad news. One of Britain's greatest comedians well over the past 30 years and one half of my favorite comedy duo of which is my biggest influence in whats funny,,Rik Mayall of The Young Ones, Comedy Strip Presents,Filthy Rich & Catflap, The New Statesman ,and my personal favorite, Bottom to name a few shows, dies aged 56. It's one of those things that someone you've never met but has made the biggest influence on you from their work. Such respect I have for his work.

      So I have some mixed feelings right now.

      Wow--that's really really great to hear!! we probably like a lot of the same music I bet. I know exactly what you mean, it's rare that you can hang with every song on an album. I always felt like the transition from LPs to CDs --where the max length went from about 45 min to 70 min--made people put out more crap that they prolly didnt really think was great anyway.

      You'll have to send me your address and I'll send you a copy of the Uggos cd that we did for the Strangerhood series, odds are that you would like it to.

      Thanks for taking the time to send the good word, it makes a tremendous difference!

      He did get what he deserved! In fact, in a little extra part in the books, they have this little "never to be forgotten" section that show the characters that died in the volume go to heaven, and Tucker was the ONLY character in the whole series to go to hell! Not even the Homunculi or Kimblee went to hell!
