      I am - truly - sitting here in disbelief.

      Monty was something of a genius, an innovator, an idol. Knowing that I won't see him running around conventions, talking to everyone in sight, being the friendly amazing person that he was, saddens me through the entirety of my heart.

      I remember the Sunday of the first RTX, around the evening hours, we all had subsided in the Hilton lobby. Many attendees had already left or gone back to the rooms for the night, not a ton of fans were left, but several of the Rooster Teeth crew were lingering to chat with everybody. One of these individuals was Monty Oum. We were standing there talking with him and his friend Jason about Avatar: The Last Airbender and how Monty was so interested in the fighting style they used, the techniques when bending. He even did some demonstrations for us - he'd taught himself some. Through the night many discussions took place. @LepraSaun, @jdwagner, @twins1990, @GWGeddie, @Michael, @fthreat, we all hung out in a group of chairs eating pizza, with Monty near by. It was so surreal, like we'd known him for years yet we'd just met that night.

      Not but two months later I saw Monty again at A-KON in Dallas. I missed his first panel, and waited outside the doors to hopefully see him before taking off to do some crazy Monty stuff. I remember him walking out, through a crowd of people, pointing at me and saying, "Hey, let's go". I barely knew him, but he remembered me from RTX. "I'm hungry, let's go get dinner", he said. I was beside myself, The Monty Oum asking to go to dinner. The kindness this man portrayed was indescribable.

      During dinner we chatted about his upbringing, and how he'd gotten to where he was. What he said sticks with me to this day. It was along the lines of, "If you love doing something, never give up, never stop pursuing". And you never did, Monty.

      You will live on through the astounding pieces of art created in your way-too-short life. And, even though short, you were able to accomplish much more than many others in their entire lifetimes. We miss you, and will continue to do so.

      A couple months ago I traveled down to the Rooster Teeth office with some friends to film a few interviews for a documentary that we were working on. In light of all the current news surrounding Rooster Teeth, I thought now would be a good time to post about it.

      My high school partners with Texas Christian University every year for a program called PiP. This program is similar to that of TED talks, where participating students are asked to either give a presentation or create a documentary about any subject that they find fit. Usually it's a topic of influential significance.

      My group submitted a documentary last year (mark all that apply.) regarding the American education system. This year we decided to tackle the internet - how it began, as well as it's recent expansion and a dabble into what the future may hold.

      We were granted the incredible opportunity to interview @Adam, @Joel, @Barbara, and @Matt while in Austin.

      Here's the documentary: HTTPS

      We were awarded best group documentary for the PiP talks and made it as a semi-finalist in the Texas statewide University Interscholastic League film competition. We thank everyone at Rooster Teeth for the amazing hospitality while visiting. With that being said, I leave you with my favorite photo that I took while at the office:

      Through it all Rooster Teeth is still in it to have fun, and that's something that I strive for when working on projects. Also, Barbara can draw one angry penis, and that's also something that I strive for.

      According to Marty's Twitter:
      "I'm saddened to say that Bungie's board of directors terminated me without cause on April 11, 2014."

      This is bizarre considering that he's probably still working on/finishing up the music for Destiny.

      To all of my friends here on Rooster Teeth. I'm so damn grateful that I met all of you. I would start listing off names, but there're too many of you and I'm tired.

      Have a wonderful week!

      This past evening I had the immense honour of seeing The Postal Service live with none other than the one and only Sean Peter Fox (@nightwolf12).

      The show was phenomenal - I desperately hope TPS finds their way back around these parts sometime soon.

      Also, it turns out Sean does an AMAZING Zoidberg impression:

      This is the pseudonym that our very own @James goes under when he enters himself into a world of writing and beyond.

      It just so happens that today is James' birthday, coming in at a staggering TWENTY (20) years old.

      I've known James for 2 years this June/July. I remember going into Rooster Speak, the Rooster Teeth community Team Speak server, for the very first time and seeing him and @craZboy87 chatting whilst @Panacamanana sat there muted and a few others idle. I hadn't know then that the very few words we exchanged in text chat that night would develop into a 2 year friendship with someone that I've had more personal conversations with than most of my family members.

      From that one day on Team Speak, through several Halo/Mass Effect/GTA game nights, to the phenomenal weekend at RTX where we shared a hotel room with @Panacamanana, @LepraSaun, @JackoSpades, & @ActionMan (during which I got completely smashed and THIS happened), I've gotten to know James very well - to a point that I know I'll never reach with many of the students that I pass by in the halls, and perhaps some of my IRL friends today.

      Damn, does time fly.

      James, I wish you the happiest of birthdays, and I hope to see you very soon!

      In reply to Jakeysuave, #12:

      ROFL! Nope, sorry buddy. If you have the parts still, I might be able to fix it for you, but one little crack in the wrong place and it's all over. Even then, I can probably fix something up so that you aren't stuck in Caps mode.

      Got everything sorted for next Friday, I'll be off at 5-6, so just let me know where to get you and I should probably be there between around 6 and 7 assuming I can get packed the night before.
