      I'm going to gone for the next couple month sailing on the T/S Empire State VI. She's a 565ft former break-bulk ship that has been converted into a training ship. I'll be sleeping in a hold with about 138 other people. I'll be doing more or less the same kind of navigation and deck work that I did the last time I was out at sea, but with a lot more people (the ship holds just under 600 people). On this trip I'm going to Europe so that's a win. The ports are Charleston (South Carolina), La Spezia (Italy), Belfast (Ireland), Split (Croatia), and Cádiz (Spain). I'll post some pictures when I get back.

      Have a good couple months everyone! See you in August!

      I never actually saw the Haloid video until after RWBY came out, so the first animation sequences I saw of Monty Oum's were the ones he did for Red vs. Blue. I was skeptical of RWBY when the first two trailers came out, but I was quickly caught up in the excitement that followed the first episodes. I distinctly remember watching one of Monty's RTX panels on YouTube and what struck me the most was when he talked about how RoosterTeeth gave him the opportunity to put these thoughts that had been floating around in his head onto paper, and then into the show we all know and love. Those words are what inspired me to try my hand at writing as well as try to learn modeling and animation through Blender. Everything I had written up till then was more analytical than creative. For probably the first time in years I was using my imagination while writing to create something rather than regurgitate facts. None of that would have happened if it had not been for Monty Oum. He inspired me to create something for myself... not because I would be graded or because someone told me to... but because I wanted too.
      While I may never have met Monty, I feel as though he made me a better person. His wisdom, undeniable talent, and creative genius will be missed by the hundreds of thousands of us in our community and beyond.

      I wish you fair winds and calm seas Monty Oum

      RIP

      But last night's RT Michigan meetup definitely warrants posting one. We had a Super Smash Bros Melee Tournament and congrats to @DiceFace for the win (I'd like to think I struck out swinging). That been said, the highlight of the night was playing Cards Against Humanity for the first time and chatting about random stuff for like 6 or more hours. We even had a round where both the "big black dick" and "bigger blacker dick" cards appeared at the same time. You know what had to be done:

      I'd first like to give the biggest THANK YOU possible to @LoZelda and her husband for being the best hosts ever... of all time. I'd also like to thank @Jean110 for bringing CAH and without whom the above... and below... pictures would not be possible. And I'd like to thank @Bruisedfrog for bringing both pulled pork and your beard, both of which were glorious.

      Lastly, I'd like to give a huge thank you to everyone in the group that made last night's amazingness possible. It was great to get to know you all in person and I can't wait for the next one.
      And now I will leave you all with the feel good picture of the night...

      So even though you are less cool because you are not in Michigan, you are still pretty cool. Have a warm and fuzzy Valentine's Day, Cam!

      I hope you can forgive me.

        wonderful. also I have uploaded a bunch of picture to facebook, but I can't tag you because we are not friends there, which makes me a little sad, since that means we are not official friends yet.

        Hell yeah it would. Actually, Jean and I were thinking about going to this pub near Wayne State sometime in the next couple weeks. You're welcome to come if you want.

      THIS IS TOTALLY RANDOM. But I had one of those weird moments that your brain starts thinking about something off the wall for no reason and I have to figure out if I'm totally crazy or only partially crazy.

      Did you go to RTX last year?

      • Tipo19

        I did not, but it is a bit late anyway. I'm sure a bunch of us RT Michiganders will get together while you're away protecting the last human city on Earth from aliens... or whatever it is you Guardians do.

        DAMNIT.

        I had a moment where I suddenly thought you looked exactly like somebody I was on the plane down there with, and that was going to be totally nuts.

        And it's sort of late, but you do know they released a new set of badges not on Indiegogo, right?

        Unfortunately you are totally crazy, but there's nothing wrong with that. I didn't go to RTX last year. I was thinking about getting a pass last minute from the Lazer Team Indiegogo and go this year, but then the Steam Summer Sale came early so... yeah...
