      The other day I saw something interesting. My roommate was playing LA Noire, and every time he got an interrogation question wrong, he would pause the game, quit, and restart the interrogation. When I asked him why he was doing this, he told me "Well, if I don't get five stars on every case then I don't get the achievement." Now I'm all for earning chieve-os, but to go through all of that trouble just for one achievement seemed a little extreme.

      That's when it hit me. If people are willing to jump through hoops for an in-game achievement, what if we started giving out real-life achievements in the office???

      And that's how productivity at Rooster Teeth reached an all-time high.

      Seriously, though, I'd be interested to see if RL Achievements would have any sort of impact on productivity or morale at the workplace. I came up with a few ideas last night just for fun...

      Hurry Up and Wait: Spent 60 minutes waiting for videos to render.
      One-Take Wonder: Record a line of dialogue in the sound booth in only one take.
      Workaholic: Donate a six pack to the office fridge.
      Brandon's Quest: Go one week at the office without eating fast food for lunch.
      Ben There, Done That: Release an episode of RvB without the site crashing.
      Spoiler Alert: Continue playing to unlock this secret achievement.
      Don't Be a Grif: Complete 30 push-ups while rendering a project.
      Dot Your "i": Find 10 typos in projects before posting them to the site.
      The Camera Loves You: Make an appearance in three videos in the same week.
      Mile High Club: Give Miles a high-five.

      ...Okay so maybe a few of those aren't specifically geared towards productivity, but I still think the AH guys should take a look at this!

    • Do You Ever Wonder Why We're Here?

      8 years ago

      Miles Miles

      Let's get serious for minute.

      Do you ever wonder why we're here? Because I do...A LOT. What I mean by that is, for a long time I've wondered just what I was put on this Earth to DO. You know? How could a dorky kid from Texas possibly make a difference? I was never any good at science, math and I don't particularly get along, and as for contact sports...well, I tried.

      The only thing I've ever been decent at, and the only thing I've ever wanted to do, is entertain people.

      That being said, I owe Rooster Teeth and it's amazing Community a big thank you.

      Since starting my internship I've done everything from sweeping the studio floor to writing jokes with the bullpen, and I've done it all happily because I know that even if I'm only able to help with the smallest task, I'm helping out the people who produce amazing content each and every week; I'm helping those who put a smile on the faces of millions of people around the world.

      And RTX only made me feel better.

      I'd always been a fan of Rooster Teeth, but I had never realized just how incredible the RT Community was until RTX. Let me put it to you this way: I've deleted and rewritten this paragraph three times now, because my words fail to describe the level of friendship and acceptance I was met with that weekend. If I were to try and list the names of all of the amazing people I became friends with during RTX, I'd be here forever, but I do have to thank three people in particular: Caleb, Michael, and Barbara. Caleb, you were an excellent leader throughout the entire weekend. To put it briefly: you're one awesome guy. Michael, not only are you a nice guy, you're hilarious. I believe you put it best when you said "WE SANG THE GODDAMN POKEMON THEME SONG". And Barbara, you're kick-ass personality and (let's be honest) stunning looks made you the perfect host for the behind-the-scenes video, as well as my favorite Canadian (no offense Luke).

      Not only has everyone at the office made me feel welcome, but everyone I've ever had a conversation with on this site has been absolutely phenomenal (and by the way, I'm still a total noob when it comes to navigating the forums and groups and stuff, so if anybody has any suggestions just point me in the right direction).

      So after taking into consideration all of the experiences and individuals I've encountered this summer, I just want to say one thing:
      Matt, Burnie, Brandon, Kerry, Griffon, Jack, Geoff, Gus, Joel, Nathan, Ben, Chris, Marshall, Monty, Adam, Kara, Seb, our other awesome intern Tyler, and the ENTIRE ROOSTER TEETH COMMUNITY...

      Thank you.

      Because of you, I no longer wonder why I'm here. I'm here to do what I love, and I get to do it every day I come to Rooster Teeth.

    • The Pros and Cons...

      8 years ago

      Miles Miles

      ...of having a beard.

      Pros:
      Laziness. Much less shaving.
      Western Pearl Snap shirts seem to be more appropriate.
      8-Year-Old me would be proud/jealous.

      Cons:
      It makes me feel old.
      If I'm not smiling, my mustache connectors make me look like I'm sad, when in reality, I'm just not smiling.
      Most ladies seem to prefer beardless-Miles.

      EDIT: Feel free to consult my images to compare and contrast...also I can't help but laugh over the absurdity of this journal entry.

      You know...the strangest thing happened last night. Somehow, a few of the cardboard cut-outs made their way into Gus' Office all by themselves. For reasons that I couldn't possibly understand, they seemed to pay extra special attention to Ben's Desk. It was kind of weird.


      The only logical explanation is that the studio is built on top of a Native American burial ground and the disgruntled spirits have chosen Ben as their vessel into the physical world.

      'Cause I mean...Kerry and I were the only ones working at the office last night and WE didn't see anything.

      So today was one of the best days I've had in a while, and Barbara sent me a video that I think sums up my feelings quite appropriately.

      I heard there was a group dedicated to sleeping with Joel. I just want you to know that I'm in favor of a "Who Wants to Sleep with Miles" group. I'll be the president.
