      This is going to be long, and slightly emotional, so strap in.


      From a very young age, around I felt alone, probably around 9 or 10. I was labeled as the weird kid. So because of that, having no friends for so long, really messed with me. I became anti-social, and socially awkward as a result. I made a few friends once I got to middle school and high school, but I still felt alone. But there's one day I remember vividly. I didn't realize it at the moment, but it would change my life. 


      One day in the lunch room, one of my few friends was telling me about this show. He said it was made using the popular FPS, Halo. At this time, I was a Playstation fan, I hated Halo and was skeptical of it. But one day, in October of 2006, I was home from school, and my parents were at work, and my sisters in school. So I decided to watch my first episode of the "popular Web series Red vs. Blue." a place I know that's tucked away, a place where you and I can stayI can't remember how many episodes I watched that day, but I was hooked. Over the next few weeks, whenever I had the house to myself, since we only had one computer and it was out in the open, I'd watch Red vs. Blue on Google. Yes, Google. This was before YouTube and back when only sponsors had access to the backlog of episodes. But, once I finished the backlog, I went to the site to watch, which was at some point during season 5 of Bloodgulch Chronicles. Eventually I started reading the comics, watching the RT Shorts, listening to what was then known as The Drunk Tank, now the RT Podcast, and now I watch everything they do.


      Then Achievement Hunter came along. Now, of course, being a poor high school kid, I couldn't exactly afford a 360 or newer games, so I had little use for guides. But then, a few years ago, they started doing Let's Plays. At this point, I was out of high school. I didn't go to college so I was struggling to find myself, and a job. But watching Let's Plays on YouTube became an escape for me. It started back on Machinima Realm with SlyFoxHound, which then went to his personal channel, which led to more YouTubers to watch. Once AH started doing them, let's plays were engraved into my entertainment repatoire(sp?). What turned into a few videos a week, turned into weekly entertainment, now AH is literally the only let's plays I'll watch. I've grown to love all of them, my favorites being Jeremy and Ryan. The countless hours of entertainment has gotten me through some bad days. A lot of bad days.


      I'm not exactly sure when it had started, maybe it was after high school or during my very long tenure at Target, but at some point in the last 7 years, I started feeling very depressed. I hated my life, I hated my job, my parents were overbearing to the point where I know they think I'm a disappointment, I lost the few friends I had kept from high school, and everything just seems to go wrong. But a constant source of light in the darkness of my every day life was RT and AH, and later, Funhaus. I'd come home from work, or on my days off, when I wasn't playing video games, and watch videos from them. They made me laugh, and feel like everything was ok, however short it lasted.


      Still looking for like minded people, I thought to myself, "where should I look?" Then it hit me. There's -a place I know that's tucked away, a place where you and I can stay a place like that. A place with people who have done amazing things over the years: the RT community. But I didn't exactly have time to interact a lot on the site, so I joined a RT Facebook group. Then, Let's Play Live NY came along. As soon as I heard about the show, I bought tickets as soon as I could. Being from Jersey, and never having attended RTX, I wanted to jump on the chance. It was a chance to meet people. While it didn't go as it had hoped, it did open me up to RTNY, since at the time, the RTNJ group I had found initially was DOA. You know, like the Foo Fighter's song. Anyway, since I joined them, I took place in as many of their events as I could. Of course not being in NY, and working a crap retail job disabled me from being able to take part in their meet ups, I took part in as many of their twice-a-week game nights as I could. I suddenly found myself feeling better about myself. I felt a part of the community I had so long been silent in. 


      Then, the Let's Play Live East Coast Tour was announced. Like NY, I bought a ticket as quick as I could. This time I had as First membership, so jot only did I get into the pre-sale for the Newark show, I got an incredible seat for the same price I paid at NY for a general admission seat on the second balcony at Hammerstein Ballroom. I was 10 rows from the stage at NJPAC. Jack even answered me at one point, when I yelled that Gavin having trouble with his penis was "nothing new." And possibly Jeremy did too when I yelled that he had worms during the GMOD Hide and Seek game play when he was dragging his ass on the ground in the game, but I digress.


      The show was amazing, but even more amazing was the people I met. Before the show, I met up with some fans from Ryan's Madhouse, then with the more active RTNJ Community group. It was one of the best times I've ever had. Talking to everyone, and actually interacting with fellow fans in person, even shooting an AHWU, which made it into the next AHWU, was something I really needed. The next day, I found the RTNJ group, and quickly joined their Discord. It's been two weeks since the show, and I've felt better in these last two weeks than I have in years. And I have RT, AH, Funhaus, RTNY, and RTNJ to thank for this.


      If there has to be anything to take away from this very long post, it's this: if you're struggling in life, in any way, I can honestly say, it gets better. But it's a marathon, not a sprint. It takes time, and some work, but it can get better, and it will get better. Just don't give up, and, as Jared Padalecki says, "Always Keep Fighting."

    • Extra Life 2016 and 10 Years Later

      2 years ago

      Rimmy_Tim FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold Red Like MirroredShadows

      The power of the RT community never ceases to amaze me. Extra Life is always such a great event that I look forward to every year, and every year it gets bigger and bigger. Last year, with the poster sales and stream donations, we raised almost 600k if I remember correctly. And this year, as of this writing, which is about 30 minutes after the stream ended, we ended at around 663k just on the stream, and with the posters and t-shirt sale numbers, we are looking at 897k in total donations! We destroyed last year's numbers by a large margin, and that is incredible. 


      EDIT: The official number is $850,00. Still impressive nonetheless.


      I just recently passed my 10 year anniversary of being a RT fan, and it has truly been an amazing experience, and I've seen a lot in those ten years. I've seen now 14 seasons of RvB. I've seen many many episodes of amazing shows like RWBY, Camp Camp, On The Spot, all the podcasts, all of Funhaus' shows, everything AH does,etc. I've seen people come, and I've seen people go, one who I'm sure we all still miss to this day, coming up on the two year anniversary of us losing him. I've seen the community do great things, and accomplish many many feats. It's hard to believe that something a friend told me about in the lunchroom my freshmen year of high school become such an important part of my life and who I am as a person. I hope to be a part of the community for another 10 years and beyond, I hope to make more friends in the community, and maybe even meet a few more of the people I've been watching for all these years.


      So once again, thank you, to everyone.

      how was Lets play Live? did you come to the party?

      Answered: Oct 11, 2016

      Let's Play Live was fucking amazing. I laughed, I screamed my ass off, I'll never forget it. I didn't go to the party because it was at the same time as the show. Maybe the next one, since I really wanna make some new friends, and didn't really get any opportunities to at the show.

      Is anyone planning on going to LPL in October? Maybe we could organize a meet up in the city, or coordinate one with RTNY?

    • Best Dream Ever. Of All Time.

      Rimmy_Tim FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold Red Like MirroredShadows

      I had this dream last night, and had to share it here. The following quote is from my post on my personal Facebook talking about it:

      guys, i had probably the best dream ive ever had last night. i was in North Carolina in vacation with my family (thats not the best part). and for some reason we needed propane for the house. so my parents leave, and im alone in the house. after a couple minutes, guess who pulls up in a truck with my parents. Jack, Brandon, Gus, and Joel from Rooster Teeth. i literally felt light headed when that happened. next thing i know, we're all partying and having a good time, Gus is talking about his shingles, and Jack throws my mom in the pool, it was awesome. i need more dreams like this. XD


      There was probably more to it than that, but those were just the outstanding moments.

    • Update time.

      7 years ago

      Rimmy_Tim FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold Red Like MirroredShadows

      its been so long since I posted on here. I've been super busy with work, I can't find time. But, I felt like posting a quick blog since I have today off. So, status update on my Machinima right now: backburner. that's right. I hate to do it, but I have a bigger fish to fry. After listening to one of the recent podcasts, I decided I wanted to write, produced, direct, etc. a movie to submit for the 2013 SXSW. The working name is Her Mind's Eye. It's a supernatural love story about a guy, who is a psychic, who uses his powers to help people, kind of like a therapist. His girlfriend gets into an accident, and she slips into a coma, with 2 months until they're gonna pull her life support. As the clock winds down, with 3 days to go, he must use his powers to enter her mind, and bring her out of her coma. I'm currently in the writing phase right now. I don't know exactly how long it will be yet. I'm aiming for a full ~90 minute feature. But I can do a short film if it works. So that's that. When I finish it, production on Equites Apocalypsis will continue. :)

    • Here's the pulse......

      Rimmy_Tim FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold Red Like MirroredShadows

      And this is your finger. Far from the pulse jammed straight up your ass. Say would you like an update? Well whether or not you do, I'm making one. So, my job at Target is going well. Making decent money. Halopocalypse, now called Equites Apocalypsis, has hit a bit of a snag. I recently had a falling out with one of my "friends" and had to kick him off the cast. And one of the other voice actors I had had to back out because of school. So now I have to recast two character, and cast a female voice actor. So, the casting list is this:

      Recast
      1) Famine (Horseman)
      2) Joe (gun store owner

      Still To Be Cast
      (including the ones above)
      1) Rebecca (museum curator, future role TBA)
      2) Leonard Jones (news anchor, and yes, it is a RvB reference. Leonard=Church, Jones=Jones or Joanus)

      So, if anyone reads this, and would like to help in some way, PM me. I'm still scripting so we won't be starting for awhile. But don't fret. If you wanna help, but don't wanna do a voice, I'm in the need for extras. Again, PM me for details.

      Rock on,
      Tim

    • Ok, here's the deal.

      Rimmy_Tim FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold Red Like MirroredShadows

      Well, I've been pretty busy the last few days. On Wednesday, I went to a federal job seminar, and learned how to apply, I've been working on my Minecraft settlement, Elliot's Hollow, and, most importantly, thinking about the future of Halopocalypse. What is that future? Insufficient data, as of right now. I will tell you what I'm doing to determine the future of my ill-fated machinima series. What I will be doing, everyday for the next week, I will attempt to log into XBL once a day. If I can get access at least 4 out of those 7 days, Halopocalpyse will be put back into production. I'll have more on this next week when my experiment is done. Wish me luck.

      Day 1: Success
      Day 2: Success
      Day 3: Success-looking good so far
      Day 4: Success-Halopocalypse is now officially back in production
      Day 5: Formalities at this point, but success
