      I'll admit it. I don't know where to start as far as catching up with everything RoosterTeeth. Does anyone have any suggestions?

      I also feel bad for not keeping up with RoosterFeast but the essence of it just isn't the same as when we randomly decided we wanted to eat our way through Austin. I would love to pass the torch or maybe turn it into a different kind of group but we'll have to see.

      Lately I've just been working and going out randomly around Denver. That's the curse of having friends who love happy hour I suppose. If any of you are ever in town let me know! I'd be happy to take you out since my friends and I know where all the cheapest drinks are. We're going to be moving to a new apartment soon that's closer to downtown and a friend of ours. So that doesn't help me stay in, although living close to a friend (we'll be in the same complex) means lots of movie and tv nights.

      Borderlands and Borderlands 2 are what I'm working on right now. Not to say they're difficult in anyway but finding the time to get some game time in seems harder these days. I've also decided to read Infinite Jest (a very long book if you don't know it) with a friend since we have both had trouble getting through it on our own. No, we're not reading to each other. I set up a group on Goodreads (another new internet obsession) so we can discuss and encourage each other as we go along. If you're on Goodreads and want to join us just let me know!

      I'm really glad I finally got back on here. Slowly but surely I'm making a comeback.

      I feel like I've made this speech before. Yes, I haven't been on in a millennia but I stubbornly stick around in an effort to support my first and favorite place on the internet. Work and other life things have gotten in the way of my daily perusing of RvB (or so I'd like to think). I don't know why I don't binge on the episodes available to me on this site like I do with anything on Netflix (btw I caught up on the American Being Human and O.M.G.) or browse the many forums that peak my interest. I get bored with the rest of the internet easily enough. It's a funny feeling but I feel less of nerd for neglecting RvB, my internet/gaming friends, and gaming itself.

      This week is the first week I have been able to sit down and play a game (and thoroughly enjoy it) for hours. I guess work has really got me bogged down or I have other things I need to do that doesn't leave me with enough time to just sit and play. It might also be the case of the what game can really suck me in. Right now, it's Borderlands and I just bought Borderlands 2 from Xbox Live for $9.99. Hail to a good deal! I was playing Skyrim for a while but shooting things is so much more fun.

      Anyway, I just got a promotion from work that doesn't result in any mandatory overtime so that's really nice. I get my afternoons back and that will definitely mean more time for gaming. I will also try to catch up on what the hell is going on around here. These guys seem to be moving at 100mph when it comes to ideas and entertainment. They are so clever and innovative. It's no wonder I keep coming back.

      I <3 you RvB

    • Trunk Update + Bonus Project

      6 years ago

      This trunk thing is a long and labor intensive project. We got pretty much all the paint off and started polishing the metal pieces.

      20120826_100449.jpg

      Poor Joe (SelecPanic) tried to fix the bulge in the lid by putting wood glue in the crack, setting a piece of wood over it and sitting on it. That didn't seem to work so he opted himself out for a 5 gallon bucket full of water. Success! The bugle is significantly smaller and now we can move onto putting in wood filler and cleaning everything up before we start to paint it! smiley13.gif

      While he was working on the trunk, I did a little side project myself. We took pictures of Denver and Dallas from Google Maps, highlighted the main highways and side roads and basically traced those onto canvas with craft tape (Martha Stewart's to be specific).

      20120825_201314.jpg

      20120826_100550.jpg

      I then painted over the entire canvas, let it dry, and peeled the tape off.

      Tah dah! Art! Well it kind of looks like the Microsoft logo...

      So the boyfriend and I picked up a ratty old trunk for $25 at the local thrift shop. We're going to try to clean it up and make it into a coffee table type thing. This is our journey.

      20120822_213349.jpg
      Sanded all the loose pieces of paint off.

      20120822_213453.jpg

      20120822_213415.jpg

      It's in pretty good shape despite the water damage on the top. I think we'll be able to glue it back together and press the bulging piece. There were no manufacturer's marking anywhere inside or outside of the trunk. All we found was on the lock itself. It said "Corbin Cabinet Lock Company." Which apparently is a company in Connecticut that made trunks and locks.

      It's going good! I got in as a Guardian for this year's RTX, so that should be a blast. Work's kicking my ass, but it makes the weeks go faster. I can't believe I've been in Austin almost 2 years already.

      How are you doing?

      Censorship is a serious problem facing the world today.

      Music snobbery is 2d6+2 times more effective when expressed with a nerdy t-shirt.

      I may have overloaded that last sentence with nerd.

      "Look, if you don't get it, I really don't have the time to explain it to you. Haven't you heard of Google? It's so stupid people can learn shit." /nerddisdain

      But yeah, I have the blue army shirt with Church #13 on the back, and not enough people understand it.

      I always wanted the "I hate the bands that you like." shirt. It requires no explaining, and for me it mostly ends up being true smiley1.gif

      I'm not really worried about anything anybody would find out about me from here. They might learn that I tried reeeally hard to fit in when I first signed up and that I'm angsty sometimes :P

      Yeah, I had a pretty similar experience. That's how I found that little bit from when I started college. It's a little eerie that pretty important parts of my life are captured on this site.

      I was finally able to go to Lulu B's while they were open today. That sandwich was good! I had a Chinese BBQ sandwich topped with carrots, cucumbers, and avocados. It had a great marinade on it that gave it that nice amount of flavor and heat. I topped it off with a Rose Topo Chico from Hola Aloha. All in all, a great lunch.

      Yeah, Tobey may have had it at one point, but Spider-man is an eternally young character and Tobey is losing his youthfulness.

      Also hopefully this means I'll never again have to see a person allegedly playing Spider-man with greased down emo hair and a saturday night fever strut. *Fingers Crossed*

      If they do bring in Carnage though, I really, REALLY hope they make it less of a kids film. I want preposterous amounts of violence and destruction. People NEED to die if Carnage is brought in.
