      RTX Guardian

      2 months ago

      It is that time of the year again!

      After such an awesome time last year of course I was going to apply again! I really made some great friends last year, had some great laughs, and shared some awesome stories. It was one of the best ways to see the convention after how many years I have gone. It also is a great way to show my appreciation for a group that has given me so much! The least I can do is give a weekend of my time.

      I really hope I get the chance to work again this coming summer...It was such a rewarding experience. I really met some great new friends over the summer, I hope I get that chance again!

      Breaking the 4th Wall here

      1 year ago

      So you might be curious where I went for a hot minute, pretty much after RTX. Well let me tell you the adventure of this year, I had quite a few ups but a couple big downs. So most of you might know I was very overweight as of last summer: 6' 1" 240 lbs... I didn't feel good at all about my self. SO I started a intense work out regiment and a strict diet. I grew stronger and stronger every day and by Christmas I was 190 lbs and in pretty good shape, I was even training for a triathlon. It became an addiction, the strive for physical perfection. By June I was 155 lbs of 8% body fat, I was everything I wanted to achieve. But it all started to go down hill. It started off with my parents getting a divorce, it made me not want to eat, drink, or socialize. If you don't know this, when you eat a deficite in calories your body catabolize fat, that is how dieting and weight loss works. But when you are the bare bone minimum of functional weight.... well, it starts to eat your muscles and I had a lot for it to eat. As I loss my new Identity I fell into a deeper depression, every day I grew weaker and weaker and my brain grew a fog. Once I hit what I thought was bottom in less then a month I dropped 20 more lbs again and that's when the doctors found my tumor. They did not know what it was at first: If it was cancerous or dangerous but they knew they needed to take it out ASAP. This additional stress and soon to be lack of working out hindered my mind even more. This is where I went to the doctors again, weighing a whopping 120 pounds and was noting but skin and bones. This is right after RTX, about 3 weeks... When I went I was diagnosed with Anorexia, something in a million years I never thought would happen to me, or even guys for that matter. I guess deep down I knew I was suffering but I didn't want to say it. My doctor told me if I kept at my current pace, I would be dead in less then a year. I did not take her seriously, in 2 more weeks I needed to be admitted into a hospital. At this time I was 106 lbs being 6' 1" I was weak and in absolute agony. After extensive therapy I got better and better. I am a a great weight now, a tad over weight but hey its better then being months away from death. I have a solid mussle build and out of my mental fog. Anorexia is just as much a physical sickness as a mental one, my mental wit diapered, my cognition, my humor, and being social was poison to me. But I feel like I have a new life now, and a new take on it. So let 2015 be the year of the Nerdist!

      I guess I have to show pics or it didn't happen:

      Mission Impossible: Possible

      1 year ago

      Well last night if you didn't notice was the RT Michigan Stream, which as per usual was a wild successes! But due to the growing amount of players (and LoL fatigue). We have decided to switch our gaming to an FPS, specifically the Free to Play Team Fortress 2 .
      team_fortress_2_group_photo.jpg.jpg
      With this game we can accommodate up to 50 players with ease and still keeping in the realm of Free and easy to play with low graphical minimums. Im really excited to to switch up the game again because of the popularity of the SWToR stream, plus there is only so many "[Insert person] is the worst at [Insert Politically incorrect name for Champion]" jokes we can make for the over 15 streams we have had.

      I also have to put this out there, if you sign up and say you are going to play YOU BETTER SHOW UP! We hold your spot and sometimes have to turn people away all because your selfish and a liar LIAR I SAY! We also would like if you are going to play to make sure to sign up beforehand just so we can get a tally of who all is coming out. You can signup here until next monday at 9:30 PM. I am really excited to get more people playing and to find even more ways to make fun of Keith in this game, hope to see you there.....or not, I don't really like any of you all that much anyways.

      • keyredacted

        2 years ago

        We could even go into a deeper question ask: 'do we ourselves even if exist in actual reality?'

      • nerdist

        2 years ago

        That is what i'm going for! Did I create the reality or had that reality always existed?

      • keyredacted

        2 years ago

        But is dreaming a reality we create, or is it possible that when we are in the state we call 'dreaming' that we are actually in reality?

      • nerdist

        2 years ago

        The world or the state of things as they actually exist, as opposed to an idealistic or notional idea of them: When we dream we are in a reality we created, is that reality also?

        Well which one, I got Geoff's from being super active in the beging days of AH. I submitted tons of games to build the library (Look at the submitted games achievement I have Jack, Geoff, and one other guy and me are the only users on the site to have it.). Matt's I got for writing a super poetic journal about what RT means to me and how it has impacted my life for the better. It also got me to be the featured user and they shared my Journal! I don't thin they really give those out any more, I got Geoff's 3 years ago and Matt's a year ago or so... Does that help?

      Well, I've watched movies and studied them for as long as I can remember, have written and worked on countless short films, just wrapped my first feature film I directed, have a vast collection of films on VHS, DVD, Blu as well as a few 35mm trailers, and, oh yeah, I RUN A CINEMA.

      Try me.

      • nerdist

        3 years ago

        For sure, and send me your trailer when it goes up too smiley11.gif

      • film_geek

        3 years ago

        Sounds like a cool idea, send me the trailer when it goes online.

      • nerdist

        3 years ago

        That sounds REALLY good, never heard of a film even close to that idea. Being a first year film student at MIT we are required to make a short 70 Minute film in order to apply to be in the Animation/Cinematography school. Mine is a documentary where I emersed my self in the Long Boarding/ Skate boarding culture. I lived, ate, and skated every day with them for 3 weeks. Its taking a look into really that all skaters aren't thugs but a really tight knit group. Its actually quite intriguing smiley11.gif

      • film_geek

        3 years ago

        Awesome, congrats.

        Mine's a indie comedy, about a guy who's doing nothing with his life, accidentally dies, and begs Death for more time. Death says he's wasted his life, what would he do with more time. "I'd uh... I'd make a movie! something I'd be proud of." Death says "Cool. See you in two weeks."

        So our hero tries to make a film in two weeks, which is impossible. He becomes as asshole to his friends trying to get it made, and it becomes a question of what is more important, doing something big and being remembered but by people who hate you, or not doing anything huge and having your friends and family care about you.
