    • A Real Journal - RTX 2014

      5 years ago

      ActionMan

      That last journal was bullshit. Here's a real journal. Also, this is my second time writing this journal after deleting it once so let's see how this goes.

      This years RTX was great! It was exceptionally fantastic to see everyone. It felt really cool to count myself among the people who have been fortunate enough that this RTX was our fourth out of four.

      Now, I'd like to give some quick shoutouts to people I saw this year. This is by no means a complete list so if I forgot you get some love in the comments.

      First, big thanks to @blue_team for being a big help to me as I hobbled around on crutches and also for being good company. Also, big thanks to @sailortweek for hooking me up this year and for keeping it on lock with the other Guardians.

      That reminds me! Quick thank you to Guardians! You guys rock.

      Right, where was I? Oh, right.

      @JTeeth was a great person to hang out with and generally destroy at Battleblock Theater with. PS Grenades don't have friends.

      @monica, @maryfairy, @fthreat, @erkan were a great group to watch Grumps with.

      General shoutouts to @Schraver, @suppi, @hazerblade, @dacuban, @chrisbotkin, @kempob, @dreckr, @dacuban, @newbs, @warpek, @myshu, @sibwarra208, @hunter, and others.

      Love you guys. smiley12.gif

    • Today I Learned...

      5 years ago

      ActionMan

      That RTX is also the chemical name for Resiniferatoxin an ultrapotent analog of capsaicin, the active ingredient in chili pepper.

      It's one of the hottest (think spicy) chemicals on the planet coming in at 16 billion scoville. By comparison that's 1,000 times hotter than pure capsaicin, and 16 thousand times hotter than the Ghost Pepper.

      RTX is an extremely dangerous chemical, 40g of which is lethal to the human body and can cause chemical burns on contact with skin.

      So, there's your slogan for RTX 2014 @barbara

      "RTX! Hotter than 3rd degree chemical burns!"

      which is only slightly better than.

      "RTX! Not safe for consumption!"

    • The Last Chapter of Weekly Speak (probably)

      5 years ago

      ActionMan

      So, it's been (I believe) about two years since I and my fellow co-hosts/friends put out the last episode of Weekly Speak. And you'd think that was it, but there was something that's been looming over my head ever since.

      Some time before we stopped doing the podcast, you may recall we had a Kickstarter campaign to raise money to cover some of the costs of running the podcast. The campaign was a huge success thanks to many of you amazing, wonderful people. Well, we ended up not using all the money before the podcast was over. In fact, we had quite a bit left over.

      So, now you what's been my problem. All this time I've been sitting on this leftover money thinking about the best way to use it. Well, after a long, long time I finally told myself that I couldn't stop putting it off.

      So anyway...

      Tl;dr
      For two years I've been sitting on a stack of other people's money and today I finally donated all the money to Child's Play. Every cent.

      Proof!

    • My Best Skyrim Story

      5 years ago

      ActionMan

      Quick background: For those who haven't heard, I downloaded Skyrim for the first time about a week ago.

      So, I had been playing through a very standard playthrough with a Nord man and playing it pretty "good-guy." Which as you can imagine is fun up until the moment you think, "I'd kinda like to see what it's like on the other side of things." So, I started up a new save and this time decided to play it kinda sneaky and... thief...ey.

      So, my story begins about 20 minutes in when I enter the first town. There's a pretty standard first quest where two guys like the same girl and you can choose which guy you want to side with to complete the quest. Well, I pick my guy and I go to deliver this letter to the girl which is supposed to sabotage the other guy but I screw it up and score for Sven on accident. So, the next part is to go to Sven and tell him the good news to complete the quest. I do this but it doesn't feel right. It kinda feels like I fucked it up for the guy I like. Then I get a brilliant, awful idea.

      I realize that when you talk to Sven one of the speech options is to have him follow you. Oh, poor, stupid, naive Sven. You've misplaced your trust in me.

      I have him follow me out of town, all the way up the nearby hill, then brutally murder him behind a tree. Once I had the newly dead Sven sprawled out in front of me I decided that the best way to cap it off (the cherry on top, if you will) is to steal all his money, jewlry, and clothes and leave him dead and naked in the woods. You know, so he really learns his lesson. Not to ever... fall in love... or something. I had pretty much lost why I was doing this by now.

      So, I returned to my town satisfied with my work. Thinking that it couldn't get any better. Boy was I wrong. As I got into town considering if Sven had any loved ones, I see someone darting in quickly from the corner of my eye. Just then a courier approaches me and tells me that I had gotten some sort of inheritance. I thought maybe this was a gift from some rich uncle money bags. Can silent protagonists have uncles? I read the letter and it's from Sven. Oh my god, this is too fucking good. In the moments just before I led him deep into the woods to brutally murder him and steal all his clothes he had entrusted all of his money to me as his closest friend. Thanks Sven for the 300 gold. You'll be missed...

      ...buddy.

        Thanks for being there man. I'll have to plan more of these in the future.

      1. Excited to be on this weekend.
      2. I just listened to Episode 19 of Weekly Speak. Hilarious, especially as it went on. I hope you do more unfulfilling stories.
      3. ???
      4. Profit.
      5. I heard there was a surprise for the person who finally said something about this.

        Well, let me say I am flattered at your comment, sir.
        I really love doing it. We're a community that has a lot of amazing artists and it's kind of hard to compete with them, especially since I've not received any formal training, but at the same time, I don't really mind. I certainly hope more people can appreciate my stuff, but as long as I have friends like you who keep cheering me on, I'll keep working hard. smiley0.gif

        Thanks a lot man. I'm really touched that you would say so.

        BTW, more people should know about your stuff. It always cracks me up. Which usually isn't easy so my hats off to you.

        Haha I understand that. With a podcast, it should be easy. You listen to it, send a tweet or comment and say "Hey, you guys are funny as hell. Thanks for making me laugh. You should try doing one drunk!" or some other random thing. Our culture is so ingrained in media and entertainment, everyone has some kind of opinion.
        Long story short, I wish more people knew about you and the Weekly Speak podcast and weren't lazy.

        Right. I always feel like I should say something constructive when someone posts art but I don't know much about art much less art criticism. People don't usually like it when I say "you should suck less." lol

        Yeah, I do.
        I see you trying so hard and while you do get some feedback or participation, it's not as much as it should be.
        I can relate when I ask "Hey, let me know what you think." and all I get is a ROLF or something. I get my couple opinions, and I appreciate all my comments like a fat kid appreciates icing on cupcakes, but you always wish it was bigger or that people were just so much more into it.

        You've already given me a gift. I like that people are listening to the podcast but I wish they were more active. You know what I mean?

      • Kempob

        7 years ago

        Haha Maybe an appearance on a snazzy podcast? Oh wait, got that.
        But no, don't worry about it unless it's something absolutely amazing for me and won't cause any trouble for you.

        You're prize is a fancy new MOD POINT!

        Okay, that's not it. I'll think of something better.

      I might be a bit late tonight to the recording. I'll try and slip in casually.

      That guy did that to every post on Top Posts...even Britt's and Abandon's kid post.

        Weird. I'm cool with people wanting to raise awareness for a cause but their's a time and a place for it.

      Yeah that sounds great! I honestly wasn't sure if I was going to be able to make an 11 O'Clock showing (it's my cousin's b-day).

      I'll be there if the offer still stands. Sorry I took so long to reply! I was doing some hard labor. . .
