      Looks like I'm going to be working RTX Austin in August and then flying over to the UK for RTX London in September.


      If you're going to be at both, let me know! We can make sure to have a beer in Austin and London. Classic international friendship stuff.

    • Turns out I'm a FU kind of guy...

      Hey there, folks. FU here. Maybe you clicked through to check out my profile to see what was so special about this guy.


      Well, not much.


      But here's the rundown of quick facts:


      1. I'm originally from Detroit, now in Austin.


      2. I help run the Austin fan community, RT ATX. You can find us on here, on facebook (/rtatx) and twitter (@RT_ATX).


      3. I work at a weird intersection of the sports, nonprofit, and business strategy industries.


      4. I believe that the 2002 Detroit Red Wings were the most complete hockey team ever assembled in the history of the NHL.


      And that's about it. Any questions, feel free to ask. Friend me. Follow me on twitter if you want (@JDSchu_). I make bad jokes and talk about hockey a lot.


      Have a good Monday, errybody!

      As Tucker said way back in S1E10 of RvB..."WHO THE HELL ARE YOU?!"


      Seriously, it's so cool to see so many new members here and followers on twitter, but for all you lurkers who haven't made it out to a meetup or our GroupMe chat yet (and for everyone else we already know), introduce yourselves!


      For example, your introduction might look something like this:


      Name: Dexter Grif

      Age: Who knows?

      Occupation: Minor Junior Private Negative First Class in the Red Army

      Where You're From: Blood Gulch

      Fun Fact: I just want to say that I'm a girl, and I like ribbons in my hair, and I want to kiss all the boys.


      And if you want to include twitter handles, gamertags, channels, or anything else like that, throw it on in.


      Looking forward to meeting y'all!

    • A Love Letter to RTX Weekend

      3 years ago

      JDSchu That Guy

      Hey, RTX Weekend.


      I know it's only been a day since we last saw each other, but I already miss you. There are so many great things about you. Not only are you pretty on the outside, but you're beautiful on the inside, too. It's like you've got 30,000+ smiling faces inside you. Or something poetic like that.


      RTX Weekend, you were a great way to close out my 25th year. 40 miles walked in 5 days, countless hours on my feet, mostly serving with the incomparable Bravo Squad on Response Team, lots of high fives, dance parties, pointing to escalators, directing to panel rooms, escorting to registration, answering questions, signing autographs, shaking hands, pacing in front of elevators, communicating via memes, laughing at inside jokes that were only days old, and watching tons of people having the time of their lives. It was an unbeatable weekend.


      I've got to give shoutouts to Chris, Mary, and Dan for leading the Guardian army, Patrick and Lauren for keeping the Response Team in line so that we could keep everybody else in line, Mama Duck for bravely taking on a rowdy bunch of loose cannons in Bravo Squad (Boss Duck, Independent Duck, Mean Duck, Strange Duckling, Ugly Duckling, and DUCK), and Bravo Squad itself for being a beautifully weird family of loving/hating siblings like all the best families are.

      Additional kudos to the team leads and squad leads I got to work with on loan to other areas: Kevin at the Hilton, the wonderful lady leading the ACC reg (I never got your name, I'm so sorry!), Dooby (if I'm spelling that right) at the OTS panel Saturday night, Echo Squad Lead (thanks for having your squad and posts organized- made relieving them a lot easier!), the Expo Guardians at the 343 booth, the Lines lead at the Twitch booth, Mitch the Lines Lieutenant, and anyone else I'm forgetting because I was in so many places this weekend. You were all a treat to work with.


      Again, it was a fantastic weekend. I'm really hoping to be back again next year. But in the meantime, I've got to say, it's not half bad sitting down at a desk again for the first time in a week...


      Yours truly,

      Captain Duck

      The rumors you haven't been hearing are absolutely true. I'll be suiting up as a Guardian at RTX 2016. See you when all get here, friends!

    • #BuffBuddies...Day...Something?

      3 years ago

      JDSchu That Guy

      I'm terrible at tracking time. I have no idea what day of it this is for me.

      What I do know is, it's freaking COLD here in Michigan. We got about 7" of snow last night. SNOW! It's not even past Thanksgiving and mother nature is decorating for Christmas!

      This was an up and down week. A new relationship has me spending more time on dates and less time on weights, and 4 days at deer camp meant a pretty crappy diet for half the week.

      I ate 762 calories of cheesecake at the RT Michigan meetup last night, which put me a few hundred over my budget (still a caloric deficit, but not as much).

      So, this week is all about getting back on track.

      In an effort to beat the cold, I started following Nerd Fitness's Beginner Bodyweight Workout (http://www.nerdfitness.com/blog/2009/12/09/beginne...) since it can be done at home without any weights (minus my 20lb tool bag for dumbbell rows). 3 circuits of that back-to-back-to-back have got me tuckered out. It'll be a good supplement to my running three days a week.

      Overall...

      I give my diet this week 2/5 @JoshtheFlanagan man buns.

      My workouts get 3/5 @MegTurney #sweatyselfies.

      My love life gets 6/5 @zachanner's in flowing tunics on a beach at sunset.

      Sorry I haven't been around. I was out in the woods deer hunting for four days with no internet. Came back to nearly 20 notifications. Damn, y'all are hype. Updates to come, but spoiler, I didn't kill any deer this weekend.

      Meant to be posting weekly updates, but I'm making a special exception as I weighed in today under 200lbs for the first time since high school. I'm really excited about this. Been looking forward to it for a while. #JRokgetsfit2015

        It would have been 2009 or 10 when I did.

        Deffo. They're quite good. Did you see them recently?

        I saw them in Chicago at their home theater where they started at. It is by far top 5 for entertainment things I've seen.

        For sure, for sure. Saw them when I was a kid in Vegas at the Luxor. Saw them again last summer in Vegas when I was there for work and liked them so much I immediately bought a front row ticket when I heard they were coming to my town.
