      The Impact of Rooster Teeth

      5 months ago

      Wow, where to begin? Back in the 3rd grade (about 2007), one of my new friends, Nick, showed me a video on youtube. I saw this person in a black suit of armor beating the living shit out of some other guys in different colors of armor in the most amazing ways! I had no idea what it was, but he told me it was called "Red vs. Blue." Many weeks passed by and I was sitting at home, bored out of my skull and the words "Red vs. Blue" appeared in my head. I went on my computer and started up season one. It took me a couple of episodes, but when I got to the episode where SHIELA started to fire again and again at Grif and Simmons, I understood what it meant to die of laughter. It took no time at all to get caught up. The revelations of Church and the expansive world of this story struck me in a way, I've never felt before. I could go on and on about how I've practically memorized all of RvB so far, but that would be really annoying.

      In the midst of all that, I started to check out more of RTs content and I loved every minute of it. I fell in love with the community here and the staff is just incredible. At home, I'm very distant from my parents and at times I don't feel happy. I am ever grateful of Rooster Teeth for making me feel like I have a second family, one that will always be there to make me laugh and feel great! In addition to that, I've been much more sociable and I've made so many friends because of you guys (Sorry, I might have stolen some lines used by RT staff! Barbara I even and bought that cat keyboard, because of you). I suppose my point is, is that everyone in this community has such an impact on the lives of others, and it impacted mine in a way that will affect everything going forward for me!

      It was two years ago that I found my passion, music. A lot of that inspiration came from the music of Red vs. Blue and I've probably listened to all the soundtracks a thousand times (I think my entire high school knows Locus' theme from me whistling it everyday in the hallways). Jeff Williams and Trocadero have been such an inspiration that I'm now going to pursue a path in music composition for film score, something I might never have done without them. I feel it can't be left out that Mr. Monty Oum was an inspiration to all of us. In terms of what I want to do with my life, Monty was a force that made me want to be more creative and passionate about what I love. He was the most passionate person that I've never met :( I hope...no I'm certain that he knew how much he affected the lives of others with his creativity, perseverance, and love.

      One thing that boggles my mind is how people can impact others without them knowing it, even if it's in a simple way like making some parody of a video game, messing around with some friends, or reaching out. While no one from the company knows me personally, everyone from Rooster Teeth has impacted my life in ways you will never know, and I am so happy! Even when I feel down, I know I can count on our community of cockbites to be around, because we all support each other. And that's better than anything money can buy!@RTContests

      In Remembrance of Monty

      7 months ago

      Monty can't simply be described in a few words, but if one were to try it would be "inspirational." My biggest regret in all of this is that I didn't take that inspiration far enough. Monty's work ethic is like no other and I wish I could have emulated his kind of passion more, which is why tonight I will be staying up all night to work on something that inspires me. And every moment that I think about stopping I'll think of Monty and I'll "keep moving forward." The RT community was told to do something creative out of this terrible situation and so I'm hoping to do it like this: February 1st aka Monty Memorial Day. Every February 1st, challenge yourself to work for something harder than you normally would (even if it means staying up all night). Monty was such a huge inspiration and now I hope to really take action because of it. We miss you Monty!

      Check out 1:08 in Red vs Blue Recreation Chapter 12. Do you see the Epsilon capture Unit in the background. Thats odd, the capture unit wasn't made until Season 8!
