      I missed the deadline by a weekend, so I'm not sure if I would still be eligible. However, I'm still happy I'm able to press the record button, say some shit without a script, and upload it like I was still in my 2014 Youtuber prime lol.

    • My first interaction with Burnie Burns

      1 year ago

      16BitsOfAwesome Keeper of Moving Forward

      The aura of Burnie Burns was strong in the bar that Monday night. He just wrapped up the live podcast, celebrating 8 years (2 decades) of podcasts. He was mingling with the crowd. I sat on the other side of the bar, with a couple of friends, looking at the swarm of fans circling Burns.


      "Man," I thought to myself, "I would not want to be in the middle of that swarm!"


      One of my colleagues looked at me and asked, "Hey, do you mind taking a photo of me with Burnie?"


      "Sure!" I responded. 


      "Fuck!" I responded internally.


      We walked closer and closer to the swarm, while Burnie's aura blinded us as we approached. The heat melted off my calm and cool exterior. My heart, pumped loudly. My voice, cracked pubertyly. It was happening.


      My friend, absolutely fearless, asked Burns for a selfie. The nerve of him not bowing down to royalty! A loud guffaw I had, and then another.


      "Okay!" said Burnie, melting everyone in a 5-person radius, "Hand that camera to your guffawing friend and let's do this."


      I took the photo. Not my best work, as the guy's iPhone camera did not handle low light well. However, it would do.


      "So, where are you guys from?"


      "Fuck!" I said, "a conversation, with Burnie Burns?! I was not prepared!"


      Burnie looked at me, cautiously. "Sir, I will not fuck a conversation with you." He laughed. "I think your inner voice is on speaker."


      "Ha ha," I said. "Ha ha ha," I continued. His aura, still melting the room like a chocolate bar in the Texas sun.


      "What do I say?" I thought internally. "Do I crack a joke? 'Yeah, I'm here making a new show, Mauve vs. Orange!' Nah, too corny. Maybe I'll compliment his tie? Shit, he's not wearing a tie."


      I stood there, thinking in silence, for over 4 minutes. Burns, melting fondue with his aura, just stared in silence.


      "Maybe I can recite a haiku? Or—"


      "Hey kid," said the nearby bartender, snapping me out of my train of thought, "That guy left like 10 minutes ago."


      She was right! I was standing alone with my thoughts and the hot bartender.


      "Also," she continued, "his aura was so Mordorishly hot that it killed all of the other people in this bar. Also, the bar is on fire. Also, pretty sure he muted you on Twitter."


      I doubled her tip and then walked away in shame.


      Fin.

      So, I really did meet @burnie and he was just so cool. Absolute pleasure to talk to, and I look forward to the day our paths meet again. burnie

      I was asked to be an admin for RT Austin, and I accepted!

      He declined.


      That's my update. Carry on, my wayward sons.

    • I don't like taking selfies with famous people

      2 years ago

      16BitsOfAwesome Keeper of Moving Forward

      I've always found the urge to take photos with celebrities kinda weird. Photos have always signified something that I would stick in a (physical) photo album.


      "Aww, this was the day my first kid was born!"

      "This is the first concert I played for a large audience!"

      "This is me moments before my first sex tape!"

      etc.


      However, celebrity encounters are not on that list for me (unless they have starred in my first sex tape). Yes, it is an amazing moment, but I would rather just talk to that person, embarrass myself, and run home. I feel that taking photos with them makes the celebrity a type of prop, like there's a figure at a wax museum, which is probably not a unique experience. I've seen celebrity pics where they make the same face with everyone, like Jon Risinger for instance, and I'd rather use that time to just take a mental video of that moment (which is probably more unique).


      Recently, at Rooster Teeth first live podcast, I met Burnie Burns (which I have documented here). I talked with him for a bit, which was an amazing feeling; something I will never forget. Afterwards, he had to start heading out, and he asked me "He, I have to leave in a bit. Do you want to take a selfie?"


      I said no. For a few moments, he gave me a look of what I assume was intrigue and being taken aback. Then he walked away, probably to his swimming pool full of money.


      In that case, I know I'm going to meet him again; namely, when he sues me for my new hit show, Mauve vs. Cyan. But it's the same thing for a celebrity that I will (probably) never see again. If I met Adele or Beyonce, for example, I would rather soak up every moment. 


      And to wrap up this post that is five paragraphs longer than it should be; social media. These days, I feel like photos are really for everyone else. "omg, I met my biggest crush, Barbie Dunks! Look, look with your special eyes!" Although I used to scoff at them, I kinda miss the old fashioned photo album. It's more personal, and meaningful, and just for me (and my closest friends who I invite over and force them to look through the albums).


      In the end, celebrities are just people and not props. I would rather melt them with my dashing good looks, and not because they are wax statues melting away under the harsh Chipotle lights being asked for a selfie. But that's just me.


      Edit: However, if I am asked to take a selfie, I would absolutely do it. At New York Comic Con, a stranger who watched my youtube channel came up and asked for a selfie, and of course I became a wax figure for her lol. Aside from it being my first "celebrity" photo, I don't think there's anything wrong with asking for them; I just don't like asking for them.

      Yes!


      First, I would like to thank the Rooster Teeth Academy for selecting me as their champion. It's moments like these when you appreciate life, you know?


      Wow, this thing is heavier than it looks!


      Anyways, I would like to thank those who have suffered from my puns. Also, my parents for being horrible and giving me pain to make comedy skits about. And omg, you... yes, YOU the community for being amazing and supporting me every step of the way.


      Shit, I'm crying. I told myself not to cry!


      This award is not just mine. It's all of ours! however, I will be keeping it at my place for safe keeping.


      [Men walk up to James, whisper something in his ear. James looks sad.]


      Ladies and gentle ladies, I have just been told that I did not win the Golden Gus™. In fact, this award goes to Moonlight! FU, Moonlight; come on up and get your award!


      [James sinks into the darkness, as someone truly deserving accepts the award... as James is not deserving of being a featured user. He hasn't even made any slash fiction. But he still appreciates his time in the spotlight, albeit brief. He says thank you and that he will stop speaking in the third person now.]
