      I have one more convention on my list this year: Aki Con in Bellevue, WA.

      I'm not much for anime conventions, but this particular event is run by some wonderfully passionate people who are community-minded. This convention is also a reason for my brother to celebrate his birthday with some of our favorite costumed weirdos. smiley13.gif That's really the reason I'm going is for costumed birthday shenanigans. This will be my seventh convention for 2012 and only one of two that I'm just a plain, ol' attendee for.

      Let's party.
      SailorTweek4f8272df5e5ea.jpg

      We are knee-deep in Emerald City Comic Con volunteer/Minion planning. Our Core Team and Minion Overlord(s) are working harder than a bloodlust vampire at Mardi Gras. Planning for RvBCanwest is underway as well...with big news being announced soon!

      I've been looking through the RTX photos recently. I miss you all so much. Man, that was a great show! So much hard work and so many grateful people. I am so excited for next year, guys...I can't even begin to express it with the full effect.

      smiley9.gif In the middle of all these meetings and costume making are 2 incredibly important 24 hour game-a-thons coming up. Oddly enough...both are happening on the same day!

      smiley11.gifFREAKY FUNDRAISER - Starring our own @Abyss_GK! For every dollar you donate, she will play videogames for another minute, up to 24 hours. She'll take requests for extra! Lots of scary videogames to be played...I hear she's kinda freaked out by scary stuff, so you should defiantly watch the livestream and giggle at her pain smiley8.gif All money raised will go towards making RvB CanWest 2013 a terrific event! We all want to see Rooster Teeth Community inspired events to succeed! Kick a few dollars her way to help our event rock!

      smiley11.gifExtra Life 2012 - RTXtra Life - Your RT Community will be raising money for various children's hospitals by doing what we all do best...GAMING FOR HOURS ON END. As much as I'd love to reach my goal, I urge you all to donate to whoever and where ever you can! smiley12.gif The gaming community and THIS community can make a difference...we do make a difference. We prove that every single year!

      There are other RT Community groups! Check out Roo Teeth Australia!

      Who else has a RT Community based group fpr Extra Life?

      In short, please donate and pass the news around that we are raising money for events and children's hospitals. If you can't donate, at least spread the word!

      smiley9.gif A huge THANK YOU for @Suppi_chan once again. My youtube video was much fun to make. I love all the gifs you made and I'm enjoying all the reactions on youtube, here on RT, and on facebook from my family.

      The new layout of the Rooster Teeth Store has me all a titter! USER SUBMITTED PHOTOS, GUYS! I love and adore and am absolutely thrilled that the RT Crew models the merch. Those people are certainly pretty to look at...am I right?

      SailorTweek4ce8f1bdd7bad.jpg

      However, I'm even more thrilled that the community gets a chance to show off their merch purchases in action. Every body type modeling the merch and customer action shots are a wonderful thing.

      But that's not all, peoples! Customer reviews and a start system, a section for questions, and the layout (I think) is terrific! So, be sure to visit the new Rooster Teeth Store layout! You should buy yourself something pretty while you're there...

    • Too Damn Hot

      I made a video on Thursday.

      My favorite @Suppi_chan ever...of all time...sent me a package with all sorts of goodies.
      The most notable item sent was a couple of pieces Watermelon-flavored Ghost Pepper candy. She challenged me to eat one of these candies and film results.

      smiley13.gifSailorTweek and the Ghost Pepper Candy Challenge smiley13.gif

      These are the same candies that @Miles and @Gavin tried during Podcast 186 ... they weren't kidding...this candy is too damn hot!

      After I uploaded the video on youtube, @Suppi_chan went and created almost 2 dozen animated gifs. I've never been gif'd! smiley12.gif

      smiley9.gifSet 1: DEEZ NUTS
      smiley9.gifSet 2: I make faces
      smiley9.gifSet 3: WTF

      My personal favorites:

      tumblr_mbrj5qTrT41qgcel1o3_250.giftumblr_mbrj5qTrT41qgcel1o9_250.gif

      Suppi says that she will send anyone a piece of this devil-hell candy IF you take the challenge like I did: Film yourself eating the candy...see how long you last and what kind of funny faces you make!

      The video turns into a vlog...and, in true SailorTweek fashion, became a commercial for Rooster Teeth stuff. I was going to write up something about the Best of Red vs Blue DVD anyway, so I speak about it briefly in the video. It also pads out the video while the Ghost Pepper still haunts my mouth...

      Thank you, Suppi. smiley12.gif It turns out that @SirNARVY isn't going to brave the other piece of candy you sent...I might go for round two to see if I can last longer!

      SailorTweek FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold RTX Head Guardian

      ...and everyone else who volunteers for conventions!
      Whether it's anime, gaming, sci-fi, or any business related or fan-related conventions...I need some input. If you are willing to give a little bit of your time, I'd appreciate it.

      I'm taking quotes from event volunteers of all genres into a volunteer meeting. I want to express to the heads of this particular event why their volunteers are so important.

      Would you kindly in the comments:
      smiley9.gif How old you are and where you are from
      smiley9.gif What convention you volunteer for (include the location of the event AND if the volunteers have a title like Guardian or Enforcer and the like)
      smiley9.gif Why you volunteer


      Would it be alright if I quote you folks? I might use them, I might not. I can at least show them to my team as a morale booster!

      Also, please do not comment if you haven't volunteered at an event OR you haven't volunteered but someday mean to do so. This is important. I love you all, but I have to keep this particular project organized for my own sanity. Thanks for understanding. It means the world to me.

      Image unrelated. This is my favorite part of the music video.

      Dear @matt

      You are one of my favorite Rock Stars.
      tumblr_m70zf6HxW11qb3fzdo1_500.jpg

      I wonder if there is anything that you can NOT do. I doubt it. You are freakin' amazing!

      Thank you for all of your hard work, your creativity, your sense of humor, and your multiple personalities. You have always been incredibly kind to us fans. Your words of gratitude at RTX were very much appreciated and made me proud to be part of this community.

      I wish that Morgan Freeman narrated your life.

      tumblr_m3i6zsxJKR1qb3fzdo1_500.gif

      Happy birthday, @Matt! I'll buy the drinks next time!

      smiley12.gifEXTRA LIFE NEWS
      Are you doing Extra Life this year?
      Have you joined the RTXtra Life Team?
      If both answers are "No", do not fear. You still have time to join!

      To make communication, planning, and moral support a hell of a lot easier for us all:
      RTXtra Life Group on RoosterTeeth.com

      Join the RT group and visit the forums! Let's get some ideas going!

      smiley12.gif This coming Saturday is a very special upcoming Saturday.
      MATT HULLUM'S BIRTHDAY is September 29th
      I think that we should get him something.
      My usual thought is a Starbucks card. Coffee powers those late night Red vs Blue sessions.
      One of my biggest pet peeves on the site is people asking who Matt Hullum is. That hurts my fangirly heart something fierce. Sarge, Doc, Wyoming, Main, Dutchmiller...AGENT FREELANCER DUTCHMILLER. (that's a Strangerhood reference. get off my lawn, you damn kids)
      Matt is director, producer, writer, actor, co-founder and I heard a rumor that he's THE Boss and I'm inclined to believe it. That man was super busy the day after RTX. He even had a sign on his door:
      tumblr_maz03xhJpo1qmwl5xo1_500.jpg

      So, let's get him COFFEE again since he seemed to like it a lot. If you would like to pitch in some money, let me know in the comments OR privately message me. We will do this with Paypal as always. My Paypal does not exist anymore so we will be using Chris's! Don't send money to my Paypal account. Message me and I will give you the correct address!

      Again, this is nothing official. If you want to send Matt something on your own, by all means! If you have an idea for a group present and need group help, then please ask! Let's show Matt that we care and appreciate the hard work he does!

      If you donate, your RT username will go on the birthday card!

      If he's reading this and would like something else...speak up, Hullum.

      smiley12.gif I will update Rooster Teeth Community Content of the Week tonight when I get home from work and a Comic Con meeting. I'm about to become the busiest unemployed person ever. smiley8.gif

      Extra Life is open for all games on all consoles.
      I will be on Xbox for the most part. I might jump on Steam for some Valve loving or boot up Star Wars Old Republic.

      smiley13.gif Do you have achievement goals? - For instance: I'm trying (and rage quitting like a madwoman) to get through Batman:Arkham City on the hardest mode AND I want to 100% Bioshock 1.

      smiley13.gif What co-op games do you have? What system?

      smiley13.gif Do you have a Minecraft or TF2 or WoW server or anything like that?

      And yes: You can do 24 hours of computer solitaire if that's your thing. smiley13.gif What system are you playing on?

      Staying up all night long isn't just about footy pajamas and drinking mass amounts of Jolt Cola.
      * We want to try last all 24 hours, so nutrition and comfort are key factors. You can't just slam a couple of Monsters and live off a bag of Doritos...or at least, you really shouldn't.

      This is what I did last year:
      smiley11.gif I keep mild coffee and a lot of tea handy - lock up the alcohol. It will be no help to you.
      smiley11.gif In addition to drinking tea like it's going out of style, drink lots of water. You will not be penalized for peeing every hour.
      smiley11.gif Chris and I cut up veggies and fruit before the marathon for easy snacking.
      smiley11.gif We did buy junkfood, but tried to eat it in moderation. When I game, I develop that hand-to-mouth disease: My hand goes into bag of snacks - then into mouth - repeat mindlessly until bag is empty - get all sadface because you really don't remember enjoying the tasty food.
      smiley11.gif Get up and stretch. Last year, I took a 30 minute break and 15 minutes of that was a walk around my neighborhood.
      smiley11.gif Weather permitting: OPEN YOUR WINDOWS. Fresh air perks you up no matter how brisk it might be.
      smiley11.gif Game in the most comfortable place in your house. My Xbox is in the living room. I have blankets and pillows and access to food and bathroom. Chris is moving his computer into the living room for optimum comfort. You all can do the same if you plan ahead.
      smiley11.gif Plan ahead. And that is why the group is here.

      These are just a few thoughts.
      So, how are you going to do it? Add your tips, your action plan, and what you did last year (if you've done this before).


      *Extra Life says many times that it is alright to NOT game 24 hours straight. They encourage health and safety first. You can do your 24 hours in a few days...you know your body and threshold better than anyone, so keep that in mind.

    • elleira

      No problem :) I agree with your previous comment that one of the issues of the portrayal of women in video games is about comparison, in that because women characters seem to be hypersexualized and one-dimensional, it creates an unrealistic, unfair standard for women to relate to. That's a common thing in all forms of media, actually, and because the video game industry is marketed mainly to guys (that's changing, but it's still pretty male-centric) there isn't enough of an effort to create realistic female characters.

      It's just one of the issues with the subject, so I think that both points (comparison and stereotyping/objectification, etc.) are valid and don't really contradict one another--they're both about representation and the ability to relate. I think it's really important to take both considerations into account, and it's unfortunate that Burnie thought it was just about women being "jealous" as opposed to feeling a disconnect with characters that they ought to be able to relate to (I don't blame him for it, it's hard to take all sides into consideration when you're not a female). I think that the reason it doesn't resonate the same way with men is that they aren't expected to compare themselves with the various portrayals of men in the media, whereas women are groomed to (fashion magazines are just one example).

      But as for the study, it was really awesome to see her character designs, and the women from HL2 (haven't played it yet, still getting through the first one because I get sick playing fps games). They're badass, and they don't need to be crazy sexy to be awesome. Seeing the references of the more negative examples at the same time provides great context too (especially the "makeover" of Faith from Mirror's Edge).

      Thanks for responding! Sorry for the novel, I think about stuff like this a lot ;) Not a conversation I was expecting on Rooster Teeth lol... Kinda refreshing :D
