      Hey everyone, I've posted this in my journal and on other places on RT but never got around to posting in the actual machinima forum where it belongs. Anyway, I would like to present FSMG's Reach machinima series called Catalyst. Essentially I'm looking for constructive criticism as my group continues to develop the series. Without further explanation, here are the links to the existing episodes:

      Catalyst Origins: Omega Squad
      Catalyst Origins: Montgomery Williams
      Catalyst: Episode 1
      Episode 2
      Episode 3
      Episode 4
      Episode 5
      Episode 6
      Episode 7 Trailer

      By no means do you need to watch all of them to understand what is going on, but there is certainly an over-arching storyline for which I would also appreciate constructive criticism. Enjoy!

      Hey guys, I know it's been a long time since I've posted on here, but I'm too excited right now not to. My (and BlueTeamFTW's) new machinima series, Catalyst, is live and doing great. I figured it was more than appropriate to return to my roots and let everyone know I wasn't just bluffing about making the series. Please watch, comment, and enjoy.

      "The series premier of Catalyst, a Halo Reach Machinima from FSMG Productions. Follow the adventures of Montgomery Williams and ODST Omega Squad as they find themselves drawn into the sinister plans of Dmitri Bordenov and unravel the mystery of the Catalyst. A secret which could decide the very outcome of the war.

      Episodes will be released once every two weeks on the Machinima Revive Channel as well as our own. As always any questions, comments, or criticisms are welcomed."

      Me and BlueTeam threw this together to honor the man they call Jayne Cobb, a character from Firefly who was played by the same man who voiced Dutch in Halo 3: ODST. Any Firefly/Halo fan will appreciate it.

      I've been gone for awhile. A long while. And I don't entirely feel like going into the details.

      Don't think I don't miss this community. I do. I'm disappointed in myself for falling out of contact with everyone. Yes, even you. Yes I'm talking to you. Which you? All of you. Except him *points a big stubby index finger at grady*.

      Now keeping in mind how I totally abandoned this site, I know I'm in no position to ask for a favor. But I'm going to anyway. My group just launched our newest installment to our machinima, and even though it was months in the making, the quality may not reflect that. But do me a solid and check out Life of a Pro Grifball Player Ep 4. Rate it honestly and any comments would be much appreciated.

      Until next time, whenever that may be:

      As if the Red Ring and ODST cock-block weren't enough, God decided to throw one more flaming middle finger made of dog-shit at me (metaphoricallly speaking thus far). For those of you wondering why I was inactive for so long, 1) you make me feel special because you noticed smiley0.gif , and 2) it was because between school, football and homework I have quite literally negative free time. Weekends aside, I am almost daily forced to stay up late to get all my work done, leaving no room for videogames.

      That is the case everyday for me... everyday except today. Today I got all possible assignments done at school leaving only one to do at home and even got out of football early. I've been dying for some free time durring the week and God decided the best solution would be to say "Lol, k" on the day ODST comes out... while my Xbox is on its way to Texas in a cardboard coffin.

      I think now is as appropriate as ever to say, "Fuck it, you win" to the Big Man In Charge. Its too late for hinduism now.

      I knew there was a reason they called God all-powerful. He obviously knows what he's doing when it comes to smiting mere mortal gamers like myself. This is a quote directly from the Xbox 360 Video Game and Entertainment System Limited Product Warranty, Part E - Exclusions from Limited Warranty:

      This Limited Warranty shall not apply and Microsoft has no liability under this Limited Warranty if the Xbox Product: ...is damaged by power surge, misuse, abuse, negligence, accident, Acts of God, wear and tear, mishandling, misapplication, or other causes unrelated to defective materials or workmanship;


      There you have it. Because God felt I was unworthy to play ODST upon release he decided to kill my Xbox, and now there's nothing I can do about it since I'm not covered for Divine Intervention.

      -Sherm
      Just in case you give a damn...


      Yes I know that Acts of God actually refers to hurricanes, earthquakes and the likes. I just thought it was too much irony to go unnoticed.

      In one of my last couple journals (however many weeks/months ago) I mentioned that God hated me and I should switch to Hinduism. I've been debating whether or not to for awhile now. Turns out the Big Man Upstairs decided today was the day to confirm my decision. And boy does he know how to seal a deal.

      Most of you know what happens this Tuesday, and if you don't then you have no business being on my page. I preordered ODST in late July, early August and I've been getting psyched up for the launch since then. The Big Man noticed this and decided to use it to his advantage. Today I my sister called me with the worst news I've heard in the past 3 or 4 months.

      Three days before ODST hits the shelves, God decided to smite me with the same number of red LED's that signify a little part of me dying.

      Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to worship some elephants with 6 arms and mourn my X-Brick 360.

      Most people have some sort of trophey wall or ribbon case or scrapbook to show their achievements and chronicle their life. Now me, I don't have a scrapbook or ribbons or tropheys (aside from the plastic one I got from some hippie college kids at the train station during my morning commute). I display my memories on my back. You can tell just about everything I've done in the past 4-5 weeks by looking there. Let me give you a list of points of interest and the coresponding event.

      Site 1)
      The Scratch: When I passed out (July 25, Happy Half-Birthday to me). It's just about as mysterious as it is crusty. How I could cut myself on a flat wall is simply beyond me.

      Site 2)
      The Welt: Paintball

      Site 3A)
      The Lifejacket Tan: Sailing on Sunny Monday

      Site 3B)
      The Lifejacket Burn: Sailing on Sunnier Tuesday

      Site 3C)
      The Peeling Skin in the Shape of a Lifejacket: Sailing on Blazing Wednesday

      Site 4)
      Bruises: Sailing all week from 9 am to 4 pm (not from the boat, the coaches abuse us. Save me!)

      I would keep going but Internet Exlporer 8 hates me and won't let me post a journal past this line. -Sherm

      Good point, and plus, I like almost every show I watch.
      So there's no reason for me not to like this.

      i fail to see your dilemma...either way you have the chance of meeting a girl...

      well..its too late anyways...you've already made your choice by now...

      by the way...i got the Mac today...and well...we had some issues...so alot of our stuff has background noise...NOTHING like last time...except for one new sketch.....We re-did EVERYTHING...some came out new and different...and truth be told...better...

      one sketch has ALOT of background noise...i stopped caring...i just want this thing out...

      i'm going to do the lines you want tomorrow...

      i'm going to try to clean the audio alittle more...but all in all..its better..MUCH BETTER....

      now all i need is a to cut the footage scene by fucking scene...should be done by Tuesday...expect audio tomorrow...you be the judge to my claims

    • Miztli

      10 years ago

      sometimes bro...you just gots to settle for the sure shot....and besides...meeting someone is the least part...

      i'm going on a huge road trip to meet people that i've only played online with...so um...its just up to you to seal the deal

      I meant in Halo Wars, but whatever.
      In COD I just play hardcore search and destroy, it's so easy to get kills and they're worth so much.
      So do you wanna play Halo Wars now?

    • jakamacca

      10 years ago

      Pretty much, considering my reaction time is shit at night, what rank are you anyway?
      Wanna play now?

    • jakamacca

      10 years ago

      Neither do I, and I'm still pretty new to it as well, but it doesn't stop me from ripping it.
      So what do you want to play?

    • jakamacca

      10 years ago

      Halo 3, Halo Wars, Transformers 2, Soul Calibur 4 and Call of Duty: WAW are the multiplayer ones I can think of off the top of my head.

    • jakamacca

      10 years ago

      I do believe that we've never played online together.
      Wanna play something later?
