      Cats make some jenky noises. I need someone who has owned cats, particularly kittens, to explain this wide array of sounds. Like the raspberry-esque noise they make when.. bite-cleaning themselves? Or the throat-gurgling they make instead of meowing.

      Also is it normal for them to.. meow but make no sound? Because one of them does that. She looks at me and makes the meow mouth movement but she doesn't actually meow.

      ...Maybe I should subscribe to cat facts.

      You will more than likely not see me at any RT events this year. Money's tight and even if I got a job before February, the bills are stacking up and I wouldn't be able to put enough on the side. Stay in school, kids, or at least stay in it long enough to have a job to pay off those nasty loans at the end.

      Hope everyone has a great time. I'll be over here writing and playing with cats and shooting arrows into walls.

      I want to wish a huge happy birthday to the amazing @Colleen. Not only is this girl an amazing artist, she's also a wonderful human being and a phenomenal friend. She's put up with a large number of my rants and late-night thoughts over the past couple of months, and I want to thank her for that. So keep being awesome, Colleen, and have a happy birthday. smiley12.gif

      Welcome to 2013, the year where RoboCop takes place!*

      Also what is this:

      Gatekeeper. Is there a Keymaster somewhere I'm not seeing?



      *no idea if it actually took place in 2013 because I haven't watched the movie in years

      Three months of journals and pictures and links have now been read through. You guys post a lot in a short amount of time. But I suppose I should be thankful that it wasn't anything like my one-week hiatus in which a select few of you commented on every single thing I had ever posted ever. That took a lot longer.

      Oh look at that, it's 3 AM, my movie's over and one of the kittens is snoring. Guess I'd better head to bed. I leave you with this gif because why not.

    • Coming Home

      6 years ago

      James

      I think it's about time I came back. After roughly three and a half months, I am here to stay.

      Why did I leave? Well, to be honest, it was a mixture of things, but it was predominantly because of a dawning realization that essentially left me temporarily paralyzed. I realized that my life was truly going nowhere. No longer in college, no job. All I had at the time was my writing and the hope that once I finished the book, there'd be a publisher interested enough to publish it.

      But it took me too long to realize taking a break from Rooster Teeth would in no way help in that department. When I left, I told myself, "James, it's time to get your shit together. I don't want you to go back to your friends on that site until you've done these things, okay? I want you to get a job. I want you to get that book published. And dammit, James, get yourself a girlfriend." So here I am, no job, no published book, no girlfriend, but somehow, I'm very happy because I realize that those things shouldn't be the ultimate dictators on whether or not I can enjoy my life. And it certainly shouldn't determine whether or not I can be here, with my friends. I still hold those three goals as things to accomplish. But I can accomplish them and be here too. In that break, however, one thing became extremely clear to me: without being here, my social life plummets. The number of friends I have talked to since leaving can be legitimately counted on two hands and no more. That's some depressing shit, yo.

      So here I am. I hope everyone has had a wonderful holiday season and that the new year brings about great fortune and joy.

      It's good to be home.

    • Hi All

      I've been watching some of the new bonus content from the RvBX set. Found myself getting all teary-eyed at the community highlights. It showed me how much I miss you all. It's been about two months since I've actually logged in and clicked to look at my profile, see the endless list of things I've missed.. y'know, the important stuff. I've kept up with RvB, but I've only really talked to a handful of people. I really do miss you all. I hope things are going well.

      Nothing can compare to this community. Two months away has shown me that. The unlimited love and compassion here is so enriching and encouraging. At this point, I can't imagine my life without all that is Rooster Teeth.

      Thank you all, for being such amazing people. Thank you to my friends, and to this community, and to the staff for giving us such an amazing home.

      That's pretty much the extent of my thoughts for now. I'm not ready to come back. Not yet. There's a few things I still need to do before I can really say I'm ready to be back. But I'll be back eventually. I promise that.

      I love you all. More than I initially thought possible. smiley12.gif

      It's official. No matter how many movies or TV shows I watch, how many books I read, or how many video games I play, I will always get the biggest boner for a good villain.

      In my Doctor Who run, the Master has finally made his debut, and I nerded all over the place.

      Well, I don't hate their performance of "Don't Stop Believin'" to be honest but I'm just not a fan of the show. I think every now and then they do something well but for the most part it's just auto-tuned nonsense.
      I'll admit, that song is a hell of a lot better than what was played at my graduation. I still can't figure out how Gonna Break My Stride by Matthew Wilder managed to beat The Middle by Jimmy Eat World. smiley3.gif

      We'll be in touch, then.

      I would anticipate that you guys have made many of your arrangements already, but if you're still looking for ideas to help fill the schedule out, let me know.

    • ragingterror FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      I'm glad somebody has taken the initiative. We lead pretty busy lives, and while we could probably throw something together with help from some of our contacts, the simple fact of the matter is that doing so ourselves would be quite difficult given the circumstances. We have been thus far so preoccupied with making RT events and PAX this year--and volunteering at a few of them--that this flew completely under the radar for us. I will be sending a message to the Mrs. straight away so we can start thinking about arranging our schedules accordingly.

      So... thank you for helping to get the ball rolling. If I can work it so that I have those days off from work, I will be happy to assist in any way that is needed including shuttling people around the area. Additionally, I have a pretty good setup for event photography, and I'm currently editing and posting content from RvB CanWest. You can find some of my work in that group's news posts and in my journal. I anticipate that I will similarly be posting content from RTX in the near future.
