      I won't promise I'm back again, because the last 2 or 3 times have been a lie. I do miss the community though so I thought I'd pop in for a bit and look at posts and watch videos.

      I hope everyone had a blast at RTX, sorry I couldn't sneak by this time around(again).


      Also..This Pokemon:Go thing....Holy crap is it fun.

    • So behind

      3 years ago

      Dane

      I'm sick and work is slow so I'm going to catch up on some of these LPs I've missed. I am behind...by 9 weeks. Holy crap. I think since I started watching RTAH religiously, like 3 years ago, I hadn't missed more than a week of vids.


      Welp, time not to move for the next 3 days.


      Have many of you found it difficult, if not impossible to keep up on AH's videos?

      Not that I'm complaining of course :D

    • My sister got mugged by a monkey in India.

      3 years ago

      Dane

      My little sister...my silly, eccentric, adventurous, and naive little sister is traveling the world right now. She is 22, and just graduated college, and decided to go on an adventure with a good friend of hers before beginning her post college life. She's traveling India, SE Asia, and if she can make her money last, some parts of Europe.

      Anyway, her latest blog entry made me laugh, and it kind of gets the type of person she is across to the reader:


      A rabied, one-eyed monkey, with razor sharp teeth jumped out of the wilderness, fists swinging, with a furocious growl low in his throat, trapped me on the sidewalk, with no where to hide. He stared straight into my innocent soul with evil intentions in his one blood-shot eye, a glare so intense it sent shivers down my spine and sweat from my brow. Each passing second felt like a life time. I pleaded as he backed me into a corner, my so-called “friends” unable to help me, laughing hysterically in the distance at my terror. The beastly, flea ridden monster came inches away from my face as it tore the water bottle, my only source of hydration, from my trembling grip. I saw my life flash before my eyes. I gave up all hope. At the last second, I managed to run as he leapt onto the wall to celebrate his victory. Without breaking eye contact, he ripped open the bottle and gulped down the water. I turned to run, whilst his friends (and mine) watched mockingly, as I tripped over my own feet, trying desperately to reach safety. Alas, with a single breath to spare, I survived. With one last look over my shoulder, I saw the ravenous motherfucker POUR THE REST OF MY WATER OUT AND I WAS SO MAD.

      Glad she's having fun.

    • OK, really back this time.

      3 years ago

      Dane

      Lots of changes going on in my life, some good, some not so much, and its kept me busy. I am finally going to commit to coming back here and at least trying to be social here again, and not just lurk here and there!


      I also hadn't played any video games in over a month which is crazy! I think that's the longest I've gone since...I was 4? Last week I played the new Tomb Raider, which was so much better than I thought it'd be. I was so impressed.

      Then the other day I of course bought bought Halo 5. It was iffy for me on whether I should because I've been budgeting so hard, but its Halo...I love me some Halo...eventually, after a whole 45 seconds of fierce inner deliberation, bought it.

      Fun Fact: Halo 4 was what actually got me to make my first post here, so there's that!


      So, like I said, I'm really really back. Sup?

    • Heya RT. Sports talk incoming.

      3 years ago

      Dane

      I'm sorry to say this isn't a WOO SPORTS! journal.

      Man.... am I really getting turned off of sports lately.

      First, I want to say, I've loved sports my whole life. I am a competitive person and a huge fan of watching other competitive people who are the best at what they do, duke it out to see who is the best in that moment. It can be anything; Football, basketball, hockey, baseball, boxing, mma, bowling, pool, tennis, poker, WHATEVER! if there are multiple groups trying to be the best, and I can follow it, ill keep an interest. Love it, and always will.


      That said, sports culture drives me up a wall. Here you have these athletes who have worked for years and years to develop their trade and refine it to near perfections, are now making possibly ridiculous sums of money, and then blow it by doing drugs, shoplifting, or many times, much much worse. You see these people either lose everything because they are fucking idiotic, entitled, whiney bitches, or even worse, they get away with what they do completely. So much gets swept under the rug and these people get to live their sweet sweet lives because they have the money to make problems go away. Money they got from doing what they love, and almost pissed it all up a tree. (See: "fucking idiotic, entitled, whiney bitches" above) Now, I know other "nonfamous" athletes and nonathletes alike do shirt stuff too. However, these guys are supposed to be above that. They are the top .1% that made it. Act like it.

      Then there is the non criminal shit that just bugs the hell out of me too. You have two people (for starters) that irritate me to no end on the same roster, the Seattle Seahawks. For the Hawks lovers out there (12s), yes they are a great team. Yes they are full of youthful talent, and most if not all appear to be "decent" people. That doesn't mean Marshawn Lynch and Kam Chancellor don't have some serious growing up to do, and need to learn how contracts work.

      Many remember Lynch's stance from last year on talking to the media. He refused to do it. At first if I remember correctly, it was after a loss and he didn't want to talk about it. That is understandable to an extent. Then he did it again, and got fined for it. THEN during a press conference where all he said was "I'm just here so I don't get fined" it was kinda funny but it's fucked up. He's getting paid millions (8m?) A year by the team and by the NFL. Where do they get that money? Sponsors. Media. Fans. They ask to hear you, you answer to them. You signed a contract that said you would, hence the fine, now go out there and do it. It seemed like a good ole fashioned "stick it to the man" deal, but the NFL isn't the "the man" you work for them. Do your job and get paid, or quit and do something else like everyone fucking else, and let the next guy in line get his shot. And now Lynch is being rewarded with a fat Pepsi endorsement that center AROUND him not talking to the media. Super. Then there's the other tool on the roster that seems to have taken up the torch from Lynch, Mr. Kam Chancellor. He was unhappy with his current contract, which he signed and agreed to, and decided he wouldn't play until he got paid more 900k more. Again, I reiterate, he agreed to and signed his contract. He thinks he has done well and deserves more. That may be true, but if he hadn't lived up to expectation it isn't like he would had money taken from him either. That's the point of a contact. He played weeks 3 and 4 of the season, after he missed a few paychecks and accumulated a couple Mil in fines. Fines that I don't think he's going to have to pay. Again, Super.

      These are 2 of the instances that stick out to me. I could go on and on AND ON about the guys all day (in fact I have) From Derrick Rose talking about free agency and his next big paycheck a couple years down the road even though he hasn't done shit, to people like Kobe and Melo milking the cash cow dry then complaining that the rest of their team is garbage and blame the head coaches, and then to fucking Deflate-gate, everything I love about sports keeps getting tainted by the people that play it.

      Don't even get me started on sports media....I mean...my god....

      /rant?

      More in part 2?

      Also, sorry for all the spelling/punctuation errors. I'm on my phone.


    • I have a confession to make:

      3 years ago

      Dane

      I not only laugh at my own jokes, but if I deem them worthy, after an appropriate amount of time, I'll make them again.

      I am the worst kind of person.

    • Sleep Paralysis, fighting imaginary demons

      3 years ago

      Dane

      Anyone else here deal with sleep paralysis? I had an instance a couple days ago(I get them every couple weeks on average) and I'm just curious how many of you have it happen to them. What is the experience like? Do you fight it, or do you know whats going on, when it is, and know how to deal?

      For those that don't know, its when you "wake up" and temporarily can't move. Some people hallucinate and see dark figures creeping up on them, and its a pretty awful experience. They actually talked about it on the podcast a couple times.

    • I miss you guys!

      Dane

      I haven't been all that active here in about a month! I've been so crazy busy with work though, I really haven't had much of a chance for the RT. I'm so far behind on videos and it's been ages since I checked any of your journals or posts. Anyways, sometime soon I'll be back in all my active goodness.

    • How was everyone's RTX? Tell me all about it!

      Dane

      Did you guys have fun? Tell me about it! Let me live vicariously through you all!


      I just got back from a wedding late last night (which was why I couldn't go to RTX), and I had a great time. It sucks I missed RTX, but it was still great fun for me.

    • Have Fun!
