      Monty

      1 year ago

      In July 2013 a few days before RTX I had the absolute pleasure of meeting Monty. I was hanging out at the Rooster Teeth offices for the morning and made it a point to go and introduce myself. As I approached his desk he swung around and did a small double take and said Nick? to which I nodded and responded "Monty."

      This moment stands out to me so much because in that tiny exchange we seemed to immediately become friends and to this day I'm still not sure how it happened. We went on to have a small chat but for the rest of the weekend whenever we crossed paths Monty would take the time to stop and ask me how my weekend was going and how my girlfriend was doing.

      I even remember asking Chris how it was that someone could so instantly be that delightful and genuinely interested in what I had to say. But that's just who Monty was, he was just as excited to meet me as I was to meet him. Everything he did was for his fans and it all excited and motivated him.

      During RTX I was luckily enough to attend a couple of the staff parties and even luckier to be convinced to get on the dance floor because there I had the pleasure of dancing with Monty. Whilst I probably made a fool of myself next to the amazingness that was Monty it was, and still is, one of the greatest moments of my life.

      I know his passing will affect millions of people but the silver lining is that his work will live on and his fans will keep his memory alive. In the past few days I have seen a mountain of RWBY artwork posted online and I know that it is only the tip of the iceberg.

      In this time it is ok to feel however you feel and no one can tell you otherwise. I believe that everyone grieves differently and comes to peace in there own way and time.

      I love and miss you Monty; I know it's been said before but you really were and continue to be an inspiration.

      Ireland

      1 year ago

      So I'm spending a few days in Northern Ireland and I love it here. I'm currently in Belfast which is a beautiful city but most of all I love the people. They're just so damn polite!

      I've met nice people before (especially in Austin) but it seems that everyone I run into here is just generally nice (even the guy I literally walked into, twice, in the space of ten minutes).

      I wish I could spend more time here. Alas it's back to London tomorrow.

      Homeless man

      1 year ago

      To get to the train station I have to walk through a park. The other night I was on my way through when I came across a homeless man babbling to himself.
      I couldn't make out a word of what he was saying but he seemed to be in good spirits and as I got closer he directed his babbling toward me.
      As I watched I was able to make out two words which were "Like this" as he said that he promptly raised his beer can and placed it on the inside of his elbow and balanced it there.
      Looking up at me triumphantly he continued to balance it there smiling as though it was the most entertaining thing in the world.
      I smiled back at him and continued on my way but what I saw has stuck with me. I think I may have me the happiest homeless man in London.
      So rock on mate, hope you keep finding entertainment in life.

      Don't be a d!ck

      1 year ago

      At age 15 I got my first job working in the stock room of my fathers Liquor store where I worked for three years eventually getting my managers licence and serving all manor of people who came in to get booze. During that run their were only a few times in which I had to deal with some a$$holes.
      After highschool I packed up my car and moved to Auckland to go to film school, whilst studying I started working as a duty manager in another liquor store at this time I dealt with a few more drunk a$$holes but nothing too major.
      2012 saw me leave my comfortable, stable job to become a freelancer in a very competitive market, to make ends meet in the quiet periods I part timed back at the liquor store I had worked at whilst studying. This was the first time I ever had to deal with someone who wanted to fight me for denying them their precious alcohol however all things considered it was still a pretty good run.

      Ok history aside I am currently living in London and over the past few weeks have been part timing as a bartender whilst searching for film work, in this small amount of time I have dealt with numerous drunk a$$holes, I have watched people nearly get into fights over who is next to be served, I have had all manor of complaints about the prices of drink (which believe it or not I do not set) and I have had a drink thrown over me (whether on purpose or by accident I am not sure). One of the worst customers I dealt with though was some self entitled piece of work who came to the bar and immediately started complaining about how long everything was taking. I happened to be doing a large drink order when she arrived and had already promised another girl who was waiting very patiently that I would get to her next so I didn't acknowledge the rude attention seeking lady. This just encouraged her to be louder and try and recruit others to her cause.

      The story ends with me smiling and apologizing for the wait but it is my hope that readers of this little tale will understand that people in the service industry are not your servants. They are just trying to earn a living and get on with their life. Bartenders do not set the prices, the waiter did not cook the food, the stewardess did not cause the turbulence and if you are drunk or don't have I.D. that's on you. So next time you think of mouthing off at a cashier just stop for a second and think. Even on the best of nights they're still at work having to listen to all manor of complaints, apologizing for things they have no control over and acting like you are the most interesting, insightful, funny person they've ever met.

      TL;DR - Be nice to your wait and bar staff

      Phase 2

      1 year ago

      Today is an interesting day for me. I'm planning to have a nap, I'm going to have a nice dinner with all my parents and I'm getting on a plane to move to England for two years.

      I plan on it being a good nap, you know one of those ones that is nice and relaxing. I hope that it'll catch me up on all my missing sleep.

      As for the move, it's pretty big. A few years ago I left everything behind and moved to America for 4 months. With that trip I kinda just took things as they came, but it was fairly easy as I had a job to walk into when I got there. This time around it's going to be a little different. I'm heading over with no idea where I'm going to live, where I'm going to work or what I should do with myself in between. Kinda just going to head over and see what happens.

      It's kinda like a new phase of my life and I expect it will be a lot of fun :)

      Since 2010 I have been running Rooster Sheep (previously RvB NZ) and I have met some awesome people in doing so. Putting on these event's and managing the group online has been a great little project, that really just started as a way to meet new people. My hope was always to eventually let other people take over for me and, although I'm not fully ready to leave, I am glad that Lucas, Joss and Vax are taking over for me for the hands on stuff in Wellington and Auckland. I hope this group continues to grow and when I head back home it is even bigger and better than I left it.

      Speaking of group's I hope to meet more wonderful Rooster Teeth fans in my travels and make it to as many fan events as my wallet will allow.

      Any way things to do and all that so this is where I'll leave it.

      Until I land

      The last year

      2 years ago

      So a year ago today I got an email that would change my life..... kinda

      I was in the middle of organizing the 2012 RvB NZ (we have since become Rooster Sheep)
      and was trying to find out if it would be possible if anyone from Rooster Teeth would be in our area around the time of it.
      Any way this particular morning I woke up to an email from Chris Demarais who I had met a month earlier whilst traveling round the states
      The email was very simple it said that unfortunately they would be heading down to NZ a month after my event but as I was involved with film would I be keen to help them out with a shoot.

      I of-course said yes, as any die hard fan would do, and from that moment was on the edge of my seat waiting to hear what I'd be helping them with.
      After going through all of the legal stuff we set up a skype session and Kerry & Chris told me of their plan to walk from Matamata to Ngauruhoe
      They, at that point, gave me the option to back out and just provide road support (like my sister ended up doing) but I was committed to be a part of that walk.

      After that I had about 6 weeks to get myself into reasonable shape. I started out by going for run's to increase my general fitness but then realized that I was improving the wrong mussels. So I set about going on long walks, at least 4 days a week I would go for walk, at first they were relatively short at only 10km which would take about 2 hours but as the weeks went on I would go on 20 or 30 km walks carrying a school bag full of history books and dictionaries to simulate carrying a pack.

      I got a lot of questions as to what I was doing and every time I just said I was going to film a documentary that requires me to be fit.

      As well as walking I also did as much research as possible into the route that we would take as I knew the land better than Kerry & Chris
      and at one point drove the route that we would be walking to find camping spots and mark GPS points along the way.

      Finally the time came and picked up the boys from the airport and we headed to Matamata to start our epic adventure which is pretty well documented....

      If you haven't seen it you probably should......

      220 km -ish later and we were done and packing up our things, racing to the airport (I freaked Chris out with my driving) and I was saying good buy to these two amazing guys who I'd become good friends with over the prior week.

      And then life went back to normal, I was battered, broken and had done this amazing thing but couldn't tell anyone about it.....

      A couple of weeks later Chris sent me a rough cut of the first episode and I got to relive it all over again.
      The cutting was great, the fx beautiful and my camerawork didn't suck!

      Chis and Caiti (From Roo Teeth) then told me to get a twitter so I set one up thinking I may get a couple of dozen followers.
      I honestly had not even considered that side of it but figured it maybe a good way to promote my fan event.

      As more and more ep's came out I had people sending me messages to my Rooster Teeth account, twitter and even a few to my facebook.
      All of which I tried to answer.

      I had not being planning to attend RTX but laying awake one night the idea was playing around in the back of my mind so just out of curiosity I decided to see how much it would cost and whether I could afford it. It turned out that if I maybe able to do it if I cut costs everywhere I could.

      So I set about planning everything and at the start of July 2013 I flew out of NZ on my 20 hour trip to Austin.

      We made it into Ausitn at about midnight and were picked up by Chris who let us stay with him, at this point I need to thank Chris so much for letting us stay with him and easing some of the financial burden of the trip.

      In the days leading up to the event we explored Austin and hung out with the Rooster Teeth crew.
      Everyone there was awesome and really welcoming a lot of them already knew me which I didn't quite expect.
      Gavin's double take when I walked in was priceless. I got to talk about cartoons with Miles, dance with Monty and drink with Joel whilst he told me how much NZ internet sucked.

      Then there was RTX itself, I had never been to any thing like it, there were tons of people, lots of games I didn't understand and interesting panels to go to. I loved just wandering around the con floor and seeing everything. As you can see from the RT Life ice cream and fire balls Allen got me quite drunk on the first night of the con and I still was when I woke up the next morning so I apologize for all the people that have my messy signature ruining there otherwise nice posters. Oh and whilst I'm making apologies sorry Jacquie for signing your back.

      Some other highlights of the con was being held like a princess, filming York dance at the mixer, throwing water balloons at Gav, having Gus plug my event at the podcast, signing with Ryan (who has a beautiful voice), seeing master pancake live and all the panels I got to attend.

      A massive thank you to the guardians who helped us out immensely during the weekend.

      Finally I made to to my panel with the boys which was an exciting an new experience to say the least.
      The audience there were great and it was awesome to see first hand how much people loved the walk.

      So I guess you could say that it has been a pretty intense year since I got that simple email (pun not intended) I hope that there is more to come somewhere down the line. I definitely want to go to RTX again in the next few years.

      This was longer than expected.

      Spoiler

      2 years ago

      So lately I've been asked a lot about what my favourite colour is yes I spell it colour, with a u

      I can honestly say without shadow of a doubt that my favourite colour is indeed blue

      I has been one of those things that hasn't changed since I was young and I don't see it changing any time soon

      Although I am quite fond of black I don't believe it will become my favourite colour

      Any way I just wanted to put this out there to crush the rumours about my favourite colour being green

      Not that I have anything against green, I just don't see it the way I see blue

      Hope this clears everything up,

      Hey man! I met you very briefly at RTX this year and I know there's no way in hell you'd remember me. But, turns out. I'm in New Zealand until february! I'm from the States, and decided to come down to work on a vineyard on the south island between Queenstown and Wanaka. I know you're based in Auckland, but was curious if you knew of any get togethers in the coming months, or any legit members of the RT community from this area, also I'd like to grab a pint if you're around Auckland the first week of February or so. Anywho, I thought a simple walk was awesome, and I'm really diggin' New Zealand so far!

      Hope to hear back from ya!

        That burger was unbelievable. Also, I went and did the Tongariro crossing and Mt. Ngauruhoe, after being there, I can't believe you guys walked that. Couldn't find the ring in the amount of time I had (group had to keep going), but I gave it a good shot. Happy simple walk anniversary!

        There is a burger joint in Mt Wellington (a suburb of Auckland) called Big J's. Go there and order the burger of the week, whatever it happens to be, you will not regret it. www.bigjs.co.nz/

        There is also a cookie place in the city called mustache where you get a fresh baked cookie and milk.

        Will you be in Auckland on the 26th of October?

      Hi Nick,

      My friends and I are planning to do as you did and walk to Mordor from the set of the Shire. We're thinking of making it a large sponsor event and donating the money to charity. As you Chris and Nick were the founders of this idea, were were hoping you would choose the charity we donate the money to and give us some tips.
      Cheers, Elliot Sizeland

        Hi Elliot, Get in as much training as you can I trained for 6 - 8 weeks before the walk. Get your self some good shoes and walk in them a lot. Apart from that just plan the trip to the teeth. Including alternate stop points and give your selves more then a week to do it.
        As for charity I think most people in this day and age know at least one person effected by cancer so I suggest cancer research.

      Hi Nick,
      Can you tell me some good places to go to in New Zealand in March-April, I am taking a month-long trip and am not sure where I should go. I like nature but can't do anything majorly energetic because of a medical condition (CFS)...I can walk for a few hours fine though. I wanted to find the one ring, but I see that's already been done! (might be moving to NZ later this year as I'm trying for a PhD at UoA... so maybe see you at a RT thing later in the year). Anyway... if you find the time, I'd love to hear your opinion. smiley0.gif

      • Snuggs

        It's cool that you do reply, since I realise that you must be super-busy what with your new status as the most famous New Zealand-born Roosterteeth guy! lol If I end up in NZ for the next 3 years, I'd really love to get involved with the RT stuff there... not sure what I'd do, but I'm one of the few girls about who like to game seriously...well semi-seriously anyway! (I do enjoy a good dick-punch in Saint's Row the Third, a la Geoff! lol) I am also awesome at researching stuff and organising things thanks to my science background, so if you need anyone with these qualities I will be glad to muck-in! It'd be a great way for me to make some new friends, I think? If not... I'll just stay a fan-girl like all the others. Hope to meet you in NZ at an RT-thing sometime in the future perhaps? Oh yeah, and thanks for the advice on what to do. Am seriously considering the blackwater rafting idea as it sounds v. cool. xx

      • nikz07 Kiwi

        I reply to all comments that I see :) I'm fairly certain that you can see Kakapo's at the Auckland Zoo. Yeah I love this community and meeting other RvB fans. :)

      • Snuggs

        3 years ago

        Awww, you actually replied! :D Of course I will be going to Hobbiton... surely that goes without saying since I am obviously a geek/nerd or I wouldn't be a girl-gamer or into cosplaying! lol The rafting thing sounds very cool. I will look into that for sure. I would like to go to the South Island. I saw there are some hot springs there, and since I have always been jealous of those Japanese macaques (monkeys) that live in Hot Springs, a visit to Hanmer Hot Springs might be on the cards :) Do you know where could I go to see a Kakapo? I think they look really cool and would love to see one for real...I've only ever seen them in nature documentaries. The guys in the RVB group are awesome. I've already been invited for drinks in Palmy when I get there, so I am feeling a little less nervous about travelling alone now. smiley0.gif The Roosterteeth community is so cool. It really feels like a proper community when people are so nice and welcoming. So glad I signed up! smiley0.gif

      • nikz07 Kiwi

        3 years ago

        Hey hun, it was a really good idea joining the group to ask them. The combined knowledge of the community is better than anything I could offer. There are bush walks pretty much all over the country. My suggestion is just to figure out the route you want to take down the country and just research what is on the way. If you plan on heading North of Auckland there are some nice beaches and awesome forest walks. If you are a LOTR fan then I would definitely hit up Matamata. The tour is about $75. In the middle of NZ there is also something called black water rafting where you get given a blow up tube and go floating though under ground rivers for a couple of hours (it's not as scary as it sounds). If you like geothermal activity then head to Rotorua but be warned the whole city smells like rotten eggs (because of all the natural gas). Definitely go to Lake Taupo it's absolutely beautiful there and from the town you look across the lake at the mountains (including Mt Doom). If you are a fan of sunshine and/or wine then head to Napier / Hastings as it's known as the fruit bowl of New Zealand. Heading south you have a lot of smaller towns that don't have much to offer but you see more of the "real" New Zealand. Wellington is a bit more of a casual city it's big but almost everything you want is located on the same street. Do you plan on heading to the South Island? Hope this helps.

      Dude that series was awesome! You saved the day there with your jog back to the ring! Only part that disappointed me was when the farmer found you on that track road and nobody uttered the line "get off the road!" haha

      Hey man! I remember testing DVDs out with you in the office when you came by for a visit; I had no idea this is how I'd see you again! I imagined it would be at a pub in Wellington, but this is way cooler. Good to see you're doing well!

      Hey, I've been conversing with Coolcaiti of Roo Teeth and RTOZ, and we've been talking about a possible alliance between Australia and NZ RT fans using the RVBNZ group as a base for our NZ fanbase. Think it'll be possible?

      Hey dude, sorry for late reply, dont come on here often currently.

      Not sure why their site was down, normally just chat with him on FB.

    • musick

      5 years ago

      Cool.

      No doubt some is out there some where, most of my stuff has NDAs attached hence i have to rework my portfolio. Giant pain in the ass, learnt my lesson about giving ownership of my work the hard way, I can understand being unreleased stuff in international market though. Just means a bit more toil now...

    • musick

      5 years ago

      I can do most stuff in 3d apart from fluids, hoping to do matte painting though and thats the portfolio i'll be putting forward.

      Its like a big gaming complex, no bar though. I figure we may as well get the rvsb fans from auckland together as it looks like a national gathering just goes around in circles. Thoughts?

    • musick

      5 years ago

      Few smaller jobs on the go but nothing to hardout, logos seem to be the staple for the last few months.

      I got asked to submit a portfolio to weta so trying to suss out a few nice pieces to send through eh, gonna be a lot of work down there for the next few years.

      A friend opened up something called caprica out your ways, was thinking it may be a good venue for a RvsB meetup?

    • musick

      5 years ago

      Biggest one yet, that I have been to. Not as much free stuff given out this year which was kinda suckful, guess its aftermath from climbing out of the recession.

      Hows things with you anyway dude?
