    • Extra Life Wrap Up

      8 months ago

      Keegan RT Georgia Admin

      I had such a great time this weekend hanging out with the RT Georgia volunteers hosting our Extra Life stream. We learned so much from last year, and were able to make this year's stream the best we've had so far!


      Last year we were able to raise $321 on game day, and had a good time doing it, but I realized that the group participation last year was lacking because of the games I chose to play. This year the goal was to get everyone involved by playing all multiplayer games like Mario Kart, Mario Party, Screen Cheat, TowerFall, and other similar single screen multiplayer games. It went way beyond my expectations.


      The second thing we changed was giving the audience an incentive to donate (other than the obvious reason of helping the kids), so we added punishments. Specifically every time someone donated $35 or more we would spin a wheel with our names on it, and whoever it landed on had to draw a punishment from the Jenga tower. The punishments were things like: eat a Carolina Reaper, get tase fisted, stick your hand in a mouse trap, have a Moonball thrown at you, etc. This went incredibly well.


      So with those two small changes we started our initial fundraising goal at $500, and ended up raising a total of $2000! We had great viewership, our community stream segment went awesome, and we all had so much fun!


      I can not thank the incredible volunteers enough, but thank you so much to Noah, Aaron, Phil, Amber, Yasin, Fernando, Adrianna, and Joe. Adrianna brought food for everyone, Phil sacrificed his hair and dignity, Noah has been helping me plan this thing since last year, Joe brought a whole new audience into our stream, and everyone was incredibly generous with their time, and energy! I could not have pulled this thing off without you all!


      Also special thanks to @jack @Caiti @kriss  @Chelsea @chadscrewattack and @RTcastMichael for allowing us to be a part of the community stream and helping us raise so much money for the kids! Looking forward to this weekend, and the continued generosity of this community!

    • Fit 4 RTX

      1 year ago

      Keegan RT Georgia Admin

      All of my life I have had a hard time gaining weight. I never saw that as a bad thing, I've always been relatively fit, but I realized last year that I was not in shape. So last year when I stopped drinking for 5 months, I came to the realization that I would have to replace the habit with something positive. That something became working out. I worked out for the 5 months that I wasn't drinking, but hitting the gym was spotty and usually dependent on if I woke up early enough, got enough sleep, or even my mood when I woke up. Needless to say, it sort of fell apart around month 3. I didn't work out from October to January.


      This year I made a resolution to gain 20 pounds starting at 130 lbs. On January 7th I started working out 3 days a week. I started taking in more proteins and fats and I started getting proper sleep. From January to May I gained 10 pounds up to 140. At the beginning of June I felt a drive to become more intense with my workouts. Lifting heavier weights, training harder every day, and adding in a second leg day per week. I now train 4 days per week. Mondays are shoulders and lats, Tuesdays are leg day number 1, Wednesdays are arms and chest, Fridays are leg day number 2. I also train abs 3 days a week on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. From May to now I have gained 5 lbs.


      In other words, it took me 4 months to gain 10 lbs, and only 1 month with the right intensity to gain 5 lbs!


      My rule for the past 2 months has been don't skip a day. It's challenging, and I don't always feel motivated to go to the gym at 5 after an 8 hour work day, or sometimes at 9 after a long night at the Braves, but the results speak for themselves.


      I should also note that I didn't start working out to get "Fit 4 RTX" but having an event like that on your calendar certainly gives you motivation to reach a goal by a deadline, and if I keep working out the way I have been, I should reach my 20 lbs goal by RTX.


      Compare yourself to who you were yesterday, not to who someone else is today.

    • Stolen Art

      1 year ago

      Keegan RT Georgia Admin

      You know, every now and then I'm browsing Twitter and I see a post from an independent artist who drew something, and a big brand with similar art and they say it's stolen. Sometimes it's very similar and there is a strange amount of similarities. Sometimes you are able to look at both pieces of art and say that they are different enough that both artists seemed inspired independently to make similar art.


      These conversations often cause me to think back to a time where I feel like my art was stolen, or at the very least ripped off or parodied.


      About 5 years ago I was trying to become a regular YouTuber. I was writing, directing, acting in, editing, and producing one sketch every week. I was gathering equipment, and getting pretty proficient at making the process quick. Most of my videos were terrible, but there was one that I was actually pretty proud of. It was around the time that hashtags became a thing on Facebook, so I decided to make a video about how annoying it would be if people hashtagged things in real life. The sketch was called #HashTag. It was getting a lot of hits. More than most of my videos that were more rushed, and less scripted. About 5 months later a sketch appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon featuring Justin Timberlake called #Hashtag.


      I really thought the similarity of the idea was uncanny. I'll admit the Jimmy Fallon sketch was funnier, and had more of a punchline than mine, but they have real writers for that show, and I was just an amateur. My friend managed to convince me that it was just a coincidence, but I could never shake the feeling that my sketch was stolen, and pushed to a bigger audience. I couldn't decide whether it was an honor that my idea was good enough to be on television, or if I should be mad that I was stolen from. I'm still not sure. I still kind of wonder what might have happened if I had made a stink about it.

      Some features have left the site very quietly. There is no ability to mod posts or comments, and there is no way to respond to comments made. I know on the old site, whenever these were taken away it was because of some effect it had on the back end.


      EDIT: Well, turns out my ad block was blocking comment boxes and mods. It had been reset somehow to not whitelist RT.


      Anyways. Merry Christmas!

    • Five Year Plan

      1 year ago

      Keegan RT Georgia Admin

      One of my favorite things about not being a full time student (as well as being 25) is that people don't really tend to ask me "how's school going?" anymore. They just assume I've graduated. So I've been steadily working full(ish) time for the past 5 years working 2 jobs. I love doing that way more than I like going to college classes, however within the past two years I have felt the push to finish up my degree to create more opportunities in my field. Unfortunately when you have a job that starts anywhere from 10 AM to 2:30 PM for two months of every semester, you have to be careful about class schedules. So essentially I am only able to take 2 classes max per semester, or roughly 6 credit hours.


      I currently need 66 more credit hours to finish my degree, which essentially means 11 semesters or 5.5 years until I finish my degree at 6 credit hours per semester. It's pretty slow going... And that is why I'm glad no one asks me anymore.

    • Making an Effort

      I think I am going to start trying to comment on every video I watch from now on. They won't all be quality, but I think I should attempt to contribute to discussions.


      So basically, if you watch as much content as I do on this site, I'll see you around.

    • Old Time Rock N Roll

      1 year ago

      Keegan RT Georgia Admin

      It's interesting to go back 9 years and listen to old podcasts.


      The biggest thing I've noticed over the first 35 podcasts or so that RT put out is how proud of their website they were. They hated Twitter because it didn't have enough characters to say anything interesting. They joked about Facebook copying their website (I don't remember exactly what feature...). They were resistant to putting their content on YouTube because they wanted to draw people to their site. Looking at the date I joined the site I would have to say that I most likely joined the site in the first place based on how much they talked about their website.


      So... Here's hoping that whatever next version they are working on can make them just as proud as they were in 2008.

    • The Hardest Thing About Not Drinking (3 Months Sober)

      1 year ago

      Keegan RT Georgia Admin

      Is having your friends not invite you out anymore, because they assume you don't want to go to bars anymore.


      I think I'm going to have to veer hard into inviting my friends to bars and breweries to get them to change their thinking.

    • Extra Life 2017 Thoughts

      1 year ago

      Keegan RT Georgia Admin

      I'm long overdue to post anything about Extra Life on my personal profile, especially now that RT Georgia's stream has already happened.


      I am constantly amazed by the people in our community. One of my favorite things about managing a community group is finding and utilizing talents that I don't possess myself. This year I decided to use one of the talents I find consistently across our community, and that is humor. Everyone is so damn funny, and fun to be around. So I invited anyone who wanted to be a part of the stream to come and hang out, and man am I glad I did.


      I have a lot of technical knowledge, and equipment to be able to produce a pretty high quality stream, but I do not have all of the streaming knowledge I need to run an event like Extra Life by myself. Luckily I didn't have to because I had Noah, who helped immensely by moderating the chat, setting up Nightbot with commands, and helping us get donation alerts running properly.


      I think this is the proudest I have been of our community because we all worked really well together to make a fun stream, and we surpassed our fundraising goal of $500, and reached a total of $671 by the end of the stream. Last year we barely passed our goal of $100, so we got more than 6x the donations of last year!


      I think our part in the Rooster Teeth Community stream went incredibly well, and I had so much fun playing Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes while laughing so hard at the antics of the lovely Spicy Sunrise. Special thanks to @jack @Chelsea and @RTcastMichael for letting us be a part of it.


      I can't wait for next year to be bigger and even better!

    • Wasting Time and Missed Opportunities

      2 years ago

      Keegan RT Georgia Admin

      One of my biggest pet peeves in my adult live is wasting time. I don't like to spend my free time doing things that don't seem to benefit me in some way.


      I watch videos and play videogames, but I usually spend 5 hours before I get into any of that just going down a rabbit hole of research. I research topics that interest me, or that contribute to my skills in some part of film. I can't spend two hours being idle before I get antsy and want to do or make something. That is why a lot of my time spent gaming is streamed now. That way I can feel like I am making something and not just playing a game.


      As for missing opportunities, I feel like that is another form of wasting time that I only realized recently. At RTX this year I decided on day two that if I passed any celebrities that I recognized, I would say hey. That ended up being a very rewarding goal, and I said hey, and had conversations with way more people than I ever thought possible.


      I don't know how to end this post. I want to say more, but I also don't... So I guess what I'm trying to say is, I am going to say yes to opportunity more now.

        Interesting. Can't say I've heard of it, but it sounds interesting.

        Oddly enough, a lot of my musical inspiration comes after listening to Starbomb or Ninja Sex Party. I think it's because their music is simple enough to hear everything going on, and immediately latch onto it.

        I'm listening to Saor - Aura. It's an atmospheric black metal album, it came out this year, and to me it's one of the best releases, but I realise that it's totally not for everyone. I'm either going to move on to The Weird and Wonderful Marmozets in a few mins when it finishes or Player Select.

        Oh, cool. Thanks man! I don't think any of us anticipated it getting so big in the community. Seeing how many people actually enjoy our efforts is really rewarding.

        That is simultaneously the worst and best thing. Worst because all you want to do is write some music, but the best because you get to listen to tons of other awesome music and get inspired by it. What album are you listening to?

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

        4 years ago

        Ah awesome, I recognised your name from the ERBoRT, that's such a wicked project.

        I'm having a momentary lapse of inspiration, there's something I'm missing in this bit so I'm just sitting listening to an album hoping that I can draw something from it.

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

        4 years ago

        Minecraft is for Everyone is a really good one too. I've been listening to that one a lot lately as well. Really I've been listening to the full album on repeat since day one. I've probably listened to the whole thing over 30 times.

        It can be difficult when you get stuck for a while, but when you get that one moment of inspiration it feels awesome!

        I like punk rock, ska, folk, rap, and techno pop, but I'm pretty much down for most stuff with a catchy tune and a good beat. My style is probably closest to punk rock. I have a bit of an odd style because I've been collaborating with some people on the Epic Rap Battles of Rooster Teeth for a while now, so I try to incorporate those genres into beats that can be rapped over. We have a couple of projects under way right now and it's really fun and exciting.

        4 years ago

        I think Minecraft is for Everyone is my favourite, although the bit in the New Pokerap, the 'Really? Wait, I'm Immediately Sorry that I asked' bit is my favourite bit on the whole album.

        Yeah I write by myself, which at times can be very difficult, I started a piece the other day, and now I'm trying to develop it more. What kind of music do you typically gravitate towards?

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

        4 years ago

        Ah, cool then. My original favorite was The New Pokerap. The first 10 listens of it had me laughing hysterically. It's not as funny now, but I still really like it. I think my new favorite is Mortal Kombat High. The beat for that one is pretty fantastic.

        Nice. Do you write by yourself, or are you in a band or something?

        Not really. I might try to work on some music myself, but this point I don't have much going on. I'm probably just going to end up wasting time until the Ten Little Roosters finale tonight.

        I think I accepted it already, I'm not too concerned, if I get one I usually reach out first, and say hi of some sorts. Player Select is good, what's your favourite track from it?

        I'm doing well, I've managed to get myself very busy interacting here, but yeah, and I finished from work for a week and a half about an hour ago, now I'm just going to start writing some music I think.

        Got many plans for the day?

        Sorry for the RFR, I didn't read that part on your profile until after I sent it smiley4.gif . I saw the recent post by ninjacake, and I figured you were a good guy. Feel free to deny the request if you want, I totally understand.

I'm usually not quick to warm up to new people, but you made it easy! It's been fun keeping up with you since. I hope you'll be at the next one...but if not, at least you'll have a super exciting job which will probably be more valuable in the grand scheme of things. :P

        Well to be fair it's not exactly as if people here walk down the street bragging about being Irish, it's more of a thing that is celebrated and boasted about while drinking. smiley8.gif Most people here don't actually know anything about Irish heritage or culture. I have discovered a bit for myself, and I think there is some really interesting history and politics going on in Ireland.

        Wow... thats actually really cool! i like their stuff, but im only really familiar with some of their songs, like shipping up to boston and johnny i hardly knew ya. Im from Ireland, and as far as i know, im irish, but i've never really looked into the whole heritage thing. Its funny how sometimes it seems like Irish-Americans seem more proud of being irish than the irish themselves do at times :L

        I'm of Irish descent. I'm 50% Irish, born and raised in America though, so I'm really no better than any other American who celebrates their Irish heritage. My cousin-in-law is in the Dropkick Murphys though and I did get to play with them at their Atlanta show.

        I'm not sure why it took me this long to get into the vlogbrothers... I have come across their channel several times, but for some reason, they always seemed to smart/nerdy for me. I guess it was an age thing. Thanks for reminding me about them. I am now subscribed to their channel and have been watching them all day. haha

        Oh wow, there are quite a few in there that I enjoy as well. I have to point out the The Vlogbrothers though, as they were a huge reason that I got into Youtube. Also Bing is really awesome. Tom Ridgewell does really sick stuff. Elio (Manchildtrollhair) is a complete nutter. Just to name a few off. Of course I watch a lot of 'smaller' youtubers as well, many of whom have become friends of mine. So that's nifty.
        Thanks for checking out my channel too! Glad to know you that you think I'm interesting. haha. I suppose I'm just a natural in front of the camera? XD

        Yeah, I haven't been on YouTube very much lately, but I used to be a huge fan of ShayCarl/ShayTards, It was a little to much for me to keep up with someone else's life though. I still really enjoy Phillip Defranco, Wheezy Waiter, Epic Meal Time, Freddie W, Charlieissocoollike, MakeMeBad35, DanDobi, ERB/NicePeter, HiImRawn (especially his music videos and parodies), Juliansmith87, KassemG, MaryDoodles, NigaHiga, Olan Rogers, pineappleboyfilms, popfriction, PTXofficial, RhettandLink, SamMacaroni, schmoyoho, SeaNanners, TheLuckyNumberKevin, theslowmowguys (of course), and TobyGames, just to name a few :P.
