    • My time is up

      Simon

      I've been away for awhile and generally sporadic on this site since it transferred across from the old one. I've grown even more distant from the RT community and right now I don't feel the need to be here anymore.

      So after much deliberation I've decided to call it time on my RT tenure.

      I don't know if anyone will even read this but either way i just want to say thank you to everyone in the community who I've interacted with. It's been a good ride and maybe I'll catch you on the other side.

    • Birthday chat

      3 years ago

      Simon

      As I type this I am a couple of minutes into my birthday, quite a few drinks down and in a pitch black room (minus the light from my phone). It has been too long since I last posted a journal on here and that's partly due to the lack of community and activity I feel with the new site. I don't inherently hate the new site but it just doesn't feel the same to me right now. I'm aware that my absence is not helping that matter but while I'm back I wanted to say something.


      I wanted to say thank you to Roosterteeth. Without them and the associated channels I wouldn't have had the great and often hilarious videos to pass the time and make me smile when I wasn't feeling to great. Without RT and their site I wouldn't have met some super cool people and in particular I wouldn't have ever met a certain individual.


      I wouldn't have met a lady who is in equal parts: smart, funny, witty, beautiful and awesome. A lady who is an inspiration to me and someone who I consider one of my closest friends.

      Without you Roosterteeth we would likely never have met and for that and all the smiles and joy you have bought over the past 2 years or so, I thank you from the very depths of my heart.

      It's been 5 months since I last posted on this site and I've generally been AWOL but I'm not here to talk about that.


      If you haven't already noticed, my very good friend @ailsarocks has written an awesome article for #MerchMarch about the new FunHaus collection that has been featured on the front page of this site. If you haven't already seen it go & check it out now or follow this link: Ailsarocks Funhaus Collection Article


      On a personal note I am so happy that Ailsa has gotten this opportunity because she loves the whole RT family and this community very deeply. This is shown by the sheer amount of things she does whether it's her RT is Fashionable group, The RT Safe Room, The Eargasm Podcast or the many other groups and projects she works on. So why don't you go over to the article and leave a cheeky little +1 Cool and a comment showing the love & appreciation for her work and dedication to our amazing community we have here.

    • Destiny

      Simon

      So I never got into Destiny when it came out. I played a trial on PS4 but just couldn't get used to it.

      I know it's a game that is best enjoyed with friends but it's also a lot of grinding which I don't enjoy that much.


      However damn you AH videos as they really make me want to get into the game even though I'm a year behind.

    • I have never

      3 years ago

      Simon

      Now let me clear up the specifics of this. When I say 'played' I mean that I have not played the game/games in the series for no more than 20 minutes total gameplay time. With that out the way let's get to business.

      I have never played:

      • Halo
      • Bioshock
      • Dead Space
      • Dragon Age
      • Kingdom Hearts
      • Metroid
      • Half-life
      • Mass Effect
      • Dark Souls
      • The Witcher

      There are no doubt a load more but I can't remember. Now feel free to mock me for not playing any of these.

      Hi everyone,

      My good friend @ailsarocks is currently having a charity auction to raise money for Cancer Research and I think you should all go check it out. Why you ask, I'll tell you why.

      All the money from the auction will go to help fighting the good fight against Cancer and we know what a total arsehole that is (seriously no-one likes you Cancer just go home already). There is also free postage, that's right FREE postage!! All you'll have to pay for is the item so all of the money you might spend goes to charity with no additional charges to you.

      There is also a listing for a straight donation which has another cool bonus. If you just donate money on that listing your name will be entered into a hat (I'm assuming Ailsa has a hat), with the potential of being the lucky winner of either The Star Wars collection or the Valve complete pack on Steam. All you'll need to do is donate and put your RT name down when you do and you'll be entered.

      This is all for a great cause and you'd be helping to try and rid the world of Cancer once and for all. So Stand Up To Cancer and visit Ailsa's auction here:

    • Hasn't really worked out

      3 years ago

      Simon

      A couple of months ago I said to myself: "It's a new site, I've been fairly absent around here for quite awhile so I'm going to try to post regularly again and have a fresh start of sorts".


      It's fairly safe to say that this hasn't been the case. I've been around and checking this site is one of my daily things I do, as well as using the site to watch videos more than I do on Youtube now. I just haven't been posting journals and the like and that's mostly because I don't have anything of interest or relevance to post.


      If I'm being totally honest I don't really do anything in life except work, sleep and watch youtube videos and between those 3 things there isn't really any fun or interesting stories that can come out of that. I also don't really do anything in the community anymore; I don't have any personal projects that I work on to post about and nor do I collaborate or help with anything else that is going on. All that put together leaves me sat here staring at the screen desperately trying to think of something to post but coming up with nothing. So you get this kind of post where I ramble on about nothing with no real meaning or message behind it except maybe just to let people know that I am still here, kinda.

    • Time & Memory

      4 years ago

      Simon

      They are both weird. To put it into context I just put out this tweet that is pretty accurate:

      "I like to think back to when I didn't watch certain stuff or talk to certain people & wonder what the hell I used to do with my time before"

      I've been on this site and been watching RT/AH videos for just over 2 years now. In that time I've met some awesome people who I talk to on a somewhat regular basis (I suck at keeping in contact to be honest). I've tried to think back to what I used to do with my time before I joined RT & before I spoke to the people I spend a fair amount of time speaking to now and I come up blank.

      I still have recollection of major events in my life but in terms of the day to day/week-in week-out, I could not begin to remember what I used to do or how I used to pass the time besides gaming. I don't really count that though because I've been gaming for years and feels like a cheat answer. Why does my brain like to delete this type of information but retains the exact road layouts of GTA:Vice City (because that will be totally useful years later)?. I'm just perpetually left looking like this:

    • Food

      4 years ago

      Simon

      I may not eat a considerably varied range of foods and might be considered a fussy eater by most but contrary to popular belief I like food. I don't eat enough though and let me clarify this.
      On a normal day I will not 3 meals a day so that's no breakfast, no lunch and no dinner (and yes they are the correct terms for those meals smiley4.gif ). I snack during the day but even then it's not constant snacking, it's a couple of times.
      My diet for today has consisted of: a bag of crisps, 3 biscuits and half a packet of mints. That's it.
      I've been eating (or not depending on your viewpoint) like this for a fair while now and just become accustomed to not eating that I don't get as hungry as I used to. My stomach is rumbling as I type this but I don't really feel hungry and I know I can go without so I won't go get something.

      Why am I writing this? I have no idea if I'm being honest. Who knows maybe by actually writing it down and in a sense admitting that I really don't eat anywhere near as much as I should might help me kickstart an attempt at eating somewhat properly & regularly. Or I could just continue to not eat, deny that I don't eat enough and carry on using the excuse; "I eat enough to survive/function"

      After frantically clicking refresh for ages this morning I can happily say that in a couple of months I will be the proud owner of this bad boy.

      And I fully intend of wearing it with my phone running the companion app when I'm playing the game, feeling like a super geek :P

      Sorry for spamming The Latecomers crew on the Rockstar Social Club. I keep trying to publish the Spongebob emblem I created to see if it will eventually work, haha

        A vote sounds like an incredible idea, although I don't know that I could choose between the RWBY one, Spongebob and the AH unicorn one...

      • Simon

        Yeah I don't have the time or creative ability to make a good emblem so I'm glad members of the group have made some smiley4.gif

      • Neil

        5 years ago

        Myself and @ClassyLad were talking about possibly making a detailed lemon emblem. I had a bit of time these past few days when making the Spongebob and the RWBY one, but I don't think I'll have the time to make any more emblems of the same caliber.

      • Simon

        5 years ago

        We could indeed, I think if we get a few I might hold a vote to see what the group want as the emblem

      • Neil

        5 years ago

        The Spongebob emblem has now been published. If you make it the Crew's emblem then we can wear Spongebob clothing with our Online characters! ;)

        It's cool mate, it doesn't send me a notification when you upload emblems so it just adds it to the feed.
        I'm waiting for the emblem to change to
