So I've been following Rooster Teeth since 2004. Just before graduating High school, I was playing Halo in LAN parties. Somehow I had emailed Kathleen Zuelch, don't ask me how, I was just looking through an old email I used and I found this dated: 7.15.04.

I apparently have come a long way in my communication, copy and pasted in it's original form:

Hello Chris,

Thanks for the email, I'm so glad to hear you like the
show! I have played Halo, but I know I'm not the best
out of all of us. I actually work in the animation
industry in the production side of things. I worked
with Matt Hullum who plays Sarge and he introduced me
to the guys....well I thought that they needed a tough
chick so it was my idea for "Tex"....they had the
character already in the series but in the beginning
she had a voice filter on so nobody new she was a she!
Anyways....long answer to your short questions!

Hope you enjoy season 3!

Kathleen

I know it seems like something silly, but after 12 years, these people are still going, they are extraordinary people and even take time to address fans. Thank you Rooster Teeth for being an amazing company and people a well rounded and contentious group of people.
