    • Why I'm a Rooster Teeth fan.

      2 years ago

      I've watched Rooster Teeth grow for half of my life. My cousins showed me Red vs Blue at season 5, and from that day I have been hooked. I fell in love with the personalities, jokes, and good times Rooster Teeth shares with its fans.

      The community is the most close knit supporters I've ever seen. We are willing to do anything for our second family, and that's exactly what we are. A family. We are bound together by the blanket of love that swaddles us all and couldn't be happier in this warm, comforting feeling that Rooster Teeth has provided for us.

      Each video has inspired me and my dreams of becoming an actor, while being smart and getting a degree in Computer Science to fall back on if acting doesn't work. No one in my life has made me feel happier, more open minded, or more comfortable with myself than Rooster Teeth has. You guys are proof that if you want to do something, you can go out and do it without anyone stopping you.

      The way Rooster Teeth has blossomed over the twelve years is inspiring to everyone who comes across your videos. The most beautiful thing is that no two people found Rooster Teeth the same way, but we are all here now as one big, happy family.

      When I had no one in my life to turn to for guidance or support, I turned to my computer and put on a smile that could only be described as giddy when I watched your videos. Above everything else, I think I can speak for everyone when I say thank you Rooster Teeth. I love you guys.


    • I'll Miss You Monty

      I had the opportunity to attend RTX 2014 and the very first panel I ever saw at a convention was Monty's RWBY panel last year. The entire experience was riveting and breathtaking for me, being able to see my role models talk to thousands of fan and answer their questions while giving us special insight on never-before-seen content. Monty is an amazing human for creating something that is so cherished by himself and everyone else in the RT Community.

      Monty's old gameplay videos and impressive works of animation will stick with me today and for the rest of my life as I remember what an outstanding mind and incredible work ethic he had. I can only hope that one day I will achieve as much as Monty has achieved. Not knowing him personally means I don't have much to look back on that I shared with Monty, but God knows I won't live my life with regrets and make him proud in my own ways.

      Today's gonna be a hard day. An amazing man died at the age 33. Too young. I can't explain how I feel. I miss you Monty. I regret more than anything that I never got a chance to meet you, but you need to know how much of an impact you've left on me and countless others. For you, I will work my hardest to achieve my dreams just like you did. I won't stop or give up. You wouldn't want that. My thoughts and prayers go out to Monty's family, the RT Staff, and everyone in the Community who was impacted by Monty's deep, artistic, and creative footprint he left on this Earth.

      Nothing will be the same without you. R.I.P Monty Oum

      It's been a while since my last journal entry, so I thought I would let everyone know that I recently uploaded a new video to YouTube! This time, I play Far Cry 3 for the first time ever whilst doing so on Master. I'm really bad at video games... You should check it out and give me feedback! youtu.be/cBpPoIPbLrE

    • So Much for Involved...

      Well shit. It's been three months since I last made a journal and I said I was going to be more involved. Hopefully I will be now, but school has been consuming most of my time. Junior year sucks.

      I guess this post should be about Christmas right? That's something that happened recently. And don't think I forgot about everyone else! Happy Hanukkah and Happy Kwanzaa! I got some sweet stuff for Christmas. What did everyone else get? And what are everyone's plans for the New Year? Hopefully 2014 will be a big year for me, I've got big things planned.

      Anyway, hope everyone had a happy holidays and has a happy New Year!

    • Late to the Party - Introductions!

      4 years ago

      ristow Ficus PA Guardian

      Hello Rooster Teeth Community! My name is Simon, but I also go by MrSmannams while on the Interwebs! This is my first journal entry and I'd like to tell everyone a little about myself!

      First of all, I've always been a lurker when it comes to the Internet. I've been a fan of Red vs Blue since season 5 but only just signed up for roosterteeth.com 7 months ago! And as this post should lead you to the fact that it took me 7 months to finally make a journal post! But no more! I'm going to be as involved with this community as I possibly can from now on!

      Like I said, my name is Simon. I'm 16 years-old and I live in Lincoln, Nebraska. Now I know the first thing that most people think of when they hear Nebraska is either, "Where is that?" or, "Go Cornhuskers!" and "Go Big Red!" Well to answer the first question... We are just north of Texas with Oklahoma in between. And for the other comments... I hate hearing about Husker football! Don't get me wrong, football is my favorite sport and I really have nothing against the Huskers, but I just never really got into being a fan of sports teams. However, everyone always automatically assumes that every single person in Nebraska just LOVES the football team, so out of spite I have decided to hate them.

      My favorite thing to do is theater. I've been involved with school theater for 4 years now and I love it. For as long as I can remember, I've wanted to be famous. Famous in any way, famous for anything, I just want to be remembered and not some normal member of society. I quickly discovered that I love to entertain people, so acting was the perfect thing for me. My goal someday is to be famous for something that I acted in, but that's not really realistic in today's world so I've got some back-up plans if that doesn't work out.

      Now that I've finally finished rambling about background information, let's talk about Rooster Teeth! My first encounter with Rooster Teeth was Red vs Blue (like most people) back when season 5 was just wrapping up. My cousins were the ones who showed me it because it was the season finale and they said I just had to see the show. I was only 10 so a lot of the humor went over my head, but I still loved it. I thought it was the funniest thing I had ever watched. After I saw my first episode of Red vs Blue, I went back and watched the first 5 seasons. Like I said, a lot of the humor went over my head, but I still laughed. Since I was 10, I didn't understand that they only release 1 season every year and didn't know why there wasn't any new episodes. So naturally, I forgot about it and became interested in something else. I never came back to see if they had posted any new episodes. That was until the year 2012.

      My brother had seen a really funny video about Minecraft, which I was very much into at this point, and decided to show me. That video was Let's Play Minecraft Part 4 - Race to Bedrock. I thought it was an amazing video and extremely funny. I then watched all of the Minecraft Let's Plays that had been released (they were on part 9 at this point) and then became hooked from there. I caught up on Red vs Blue, I watched all of the Let's Plays, I watched the podcasts, I eventually got to the point where I am now which is where I watch every video uploaded by Rooster Teeth. These guys are my favorite people on the Internet and I wish I could be even slightly like them. I plan on going to RTX 2014 which will be the first time I meet any of them in person. I'm so excited!!!

      So that's me! But now that I've told the community my story, I want to hear yours! When did you see your first Rooster Teeth video? How did you find out about them? What's your favorite color? (Mine's blue) I think it's really cool to hear others' stories about their encounters with these wonderful people at Rooster Teeth. So tell me in the comments!

      -Simon (MrSmannams)
