    • I've returned, so here's me talking about my first RTX

      3 months ago

      totallytman

      Hello there everyone! It's been a while; like, a long while! A lot has changed since then (for one, I'm less of a dork than I was before, I mean just look at my previous posts, they're terrible) and I've gotten to do some pretty cool things as well. I've seen films I was excited for early (I mean a week or so early, not those Thursday night showings), decided I wanted to go into film making thanks to looking more into Monty's philosophy and realizing how fitting it was for who I am, and I even met the co-director of my favorite movie of last year: Shin Godzilla (it wasn't Anno)! Despite all of this, there was still one thing I've wanted to do more than anything; a certain convention that I've wanted to attend more than any other for years now. That convention, my friends, was RTX, and I was finally able to attend this year. Having heard the stories of the good times many others have had in previous years, needless to say, my expectations were astronomically high. Even with that being the case, RTX managed to blow those expectations out of the water! So, let's hit the high points of each day so that I can share my great experience with you all!


      Day 1:

      Day one was a bit of a mess, but fun nonetheless. I drove in around 10 in the morning on Friday, but thanks to new regulations put on by ACC itself, it took me nearly 3 hours to pick my badge up. That's not to say I didn't have fun in line though; I stood behind some RWBY x Borderlands cosplayers that everyone seemed to want to get pictures of/with. It was pretty enjoyable chatting with them, and I made the conscious decision to get into cosplay myself after seeing how much fun they and everyone else who did the same were having. The long line, however, also brought some anxiety, namely that I would miss the one panel I wanted to see more than anything: the RWBY panel. But after picking my badge up, my anxieties were eased when I actually made it. The panel was great, and seeing the things that only attendees could see was nice too! Monty's brother showed up, and I got to thank him for his brother's influence on my life (him acting as a representative to Monty's legacy). After that, I decided to try my hand at getting into the expo hall, but thanks to those regulations I mentioned before that required a basic security check to get in (bag check and metal detector) and the unpreparedness of it (there were only two metal detectors at first), I gave up after nearly an hour in line without moving. After resting at the hotel for a bit, I made my way over to the War for the Planet of the Apes screening; movie was great, and it was pretty dang cool to be less than 100 feet from ANDY SERKIS HIMSELF!!! By the end of that day, I was pretty exhausted (who knew that standing on one place for 10-15 minutes at a time and only moving a few feet could wear you out so much), so I went to bed fairly early.


      Day 2:

      My day started early on Saturday; I got there around 8 as to try and avoid another mess of a line to get into the expo hall. Turns out, I didn't have to because security actually improved! Also on that day was my signing, which was with Kara and Arryn (Weiss and Blake from RWBY for those who don't know). For thatm I bought a poster for Volume 4 in the expo hall and had them sign that. Let me tell you, they were great to meet in person, and were actually super friendly and sweet! That signing alone made my whole weekend!  Following that, I got some lunch and headed back to the hotel for some rest before the next panel I was to attend: Sugar Pine 7. The whole panel consisted entirely of Steven jokingly bullying his fans who were asking him questions, and I loved it! Afterwards, I got in line for On The Spot (my first experience with that show), where I met two more cosplayers and had a nice conversation with them as well, which included asking them for cosplay advice. That panel was absolutely amazing (strange, yes, but amazing nonetheless), and convinced me to start watching On The Spot for myself! So ended my Saturday at RTX, the best of the three days I was there!


      Day 3:

      The final day was fairly light, but a great way to end my favorite con experience. I went to the RTAA panel, and finally saw the legendary intro video for myself. When Q&A started, I left for the expo hall to get some last minute stuff. While I was originally just going to buy a RWBY Chibi Weiss lanyard (best girl!), I got a notification that the RT store was having a buy one get one offer on t-shirts, so I took advantage of that. I got to meet Meg Turney there as well, and she was also really nice! Afterwards, I went to the Million Dollars, But... panel, which was fun, and immediately got in line for Fan Service, my final panel, once it ended. Oddly, before I was even in the room for Million Dollars, But..., the post-con depression was already setting in. As I set off on my way home after that, I couldn't help but get kind of choked up over how great my weekend was and how lucky I was to have met so many people who shared the same interests as me.


      In the end, I ended up leaving Austin with a Ruby vinyl figure, that Volume 4 poster, that Weiss lanyard, a legitimate replica of the Master Sword, and four different t-shirts ("It's also a gun", "Quintessential Gamer", the Camp Camp counselor shirt, and the Weiss vintage tee), resulting in my wardrobe of t-shirts being almost entirely made up of geek stuff. RTX was everything I wanted it to be, and then some. The memories of this past weekend will stick with me for a long time, and I'm extremely happy to have been able to be a part of such an amazing event. Getting to meet everyone I did was something absolutely amazing. Thank you to everyone for making it possible. While it's nice to be home, my heart is still in Austin, and I cannot wait to come back next year!

    • RWBY Volume 3 Finale (my reaction)

      So, so you think you can tell Heaven from Hell, blue skies from pain.
      Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail?
      A smile from a veil?
      Do you think you can tell?

      Did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts?
      Hot ashes for trees?
      Hot air for a cool breeze?
      Cold comfort for change?
      Did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?

      How I wish, how I wish you were here.
      We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year,
      Running over the same old ground.
      What have we found?
      The same old fears.

      Wish you were here.


      (not part of the song) What's even more sad is that it's cloudy where I am.

    • My First SGC! (Day by Day Breakdown)

      2 years ago

      totallytman

      I attended SGC in Dallas over the weekend, and it was genuinely the greatest con experience I have had in my life! I met people I had otherwise only seen online, met some of those I look up to (Rooster Teeth in general, @Barbara, @RevDrMarquis, @Chris, and @Jordan were there), had many laughs, and walked out with a bunch of swag from the vendor hall. So much happened in 3 short days, and I'm still trying to let that sink in. To help that happen, I've decided to write about my experiences this weekend.

      Day 1
      It began around 9ish, when my friend (of whom I was going with) and I arrived (we both lived a relatively short distance from the event, so we didn't have to get a hotel room). We first got our badges, and got in line for the opening ceremonies. We quickly learned that we had forgotten something truly important: our 3DSs. Pretty much everyone had one, so we basically had nothing to do while waiting in line other than play on our phones and people watch. Suddenly, PeanutButterGamer passes by us, I end up stopping him and get his autograph, and I'm able to chat with him for a moment as well. I also ran into ProJared, but I could tell he was in a hurry, so I simply gave him a high five. After the opening ceremonies (which also doubled as a ScrewAttack panel), we got in line for the autographs. We checked out the vendor hall afterwards, and then got in line for the ProJared panel. We did not, however, get into the autograph line for him. What we did do later on was get into the Mega64 autograph line, from which they were selling stuff. I ended up buying a con exclusive blu-ray and getting a picture with them. Finally, we went to the main event: ScrewAttack vs. Mega64. I was on ScrewAttack's side, something I was happy about when it ended. And with that, Day 1 of SGC was over for us.

      Day 2
      The second day started out with us queueing for the PBG panel, of which was pretty entertaining. We couldn't, however, get in line for the autograph session, as more important things were at hand. Namely, getting a good spot in line for the Rooster Teeth panel. I was excited! I would finally get to see some of the people I look up to as idols and heroes. I (my friend had left the line and didn't return in time to get a seat) left once the Q&A started so we could get a good spot in the autograph line. Luckily, my friend made sure of that. As we approached the table, I was shacking with excitement! I told them of my admiration of them, and of my dream job at Rooster Teeth. Jordan reminded me that he wanted to work for them, and he got his wish (fingers crossed people!). They signed my autograph book, and I was able to get a picture with them. I still can't believe it. Afterwards, we browsed the vendor hall again, where I ended up buying Kingdom Hearts 2. The vendor was having a special where every dollar spent meant a free comic book. KH2 was $12. I had to carry 12 comic books throughout that whole day! It was during that time that I met the guys from TeamFourStar, who demonstrated their voice acting abilities to us. We were going to go to the DBZ Reunion panel, but the line was too long, and the autograph line was basically just a clump of people. I might be a fan of DBZ, but you couldn't pay me to wait in that line! It was at that point we decided to go to the TFS Q&A, and while I was in line, I bought my first amiibo (Luigi). Their panel was great! To top off the night, we went to the OTHER main event: DEATH BATTLE LIVE! As a DBZ fan, you can probably guess how angry I was at the ending.We left shortly after.

      Day 3
      The final day was one of the most bitter-sweet days of my life. We first got in line for the Funhaus panel, of which was my friends first exposure to the Funhaus crew. We got into the autograph line once the panel had ended, where I had something special planned. I had brought an old demo disc for Bruce to snap and then allow the team to sign the fragments, but things went in a completely unexpected direction. Adam started filming with a GoPro, introducing me and allowing me to do an introduction of what was on the disc. Either while I was talking or right as I finished (forgot which one) Bruce yanks it from my hand and snaps it with a completely blank, straight face. They did sign the shards (and I got a picture with) them. We then tried to get in line for the Game Theorists autograph session, but it was too long, so we decided to get in line for the Q&A panel. Right before it started, I got MatPat to sign the book, and I took my seat. Afterwards, I went back to the vendor hall one last time, where I picked up the Gears of War 3 collector's edition and Uncharted 2. We had gotten in line for the game show, but it ran late, so we just decided to leave. Those last few steps were the hardest I ever had to make. I never wanted it to end. Also, I found out later that Adam gave away the remaining disc fragments to the people behind my friend and I in the autograph line. I started a trend!

      So, here I am typing about my experiences. Suffering from post con depression. SGC 2015 will live on forever in my memory as one of those weekends that you wish you could experience again and again. Thank you ScrewAttack (I know this isn't their site) for hosting this amazing event. Thank you Barbara, Aaron, Chris, Jordan, @AdamKovic, @BruceGreene, @JamesWillems, and Lawrence for taking the time to come up here and spend time with fans like me. And thank you to everyone else who made SGC 2015 so great. Here's to an even greater SGC 2016!

      @Barbara @Chris and @Jordan are coming to SGC this year along with the Funhaus guys. Why is this not listed on the events page?

      UPDATE: Well, now they're acknowledging it.
