      Not all hip-hop is a flop. Sure, I sure do love gettiin' thugged out, but sometimes you just wanna slow-roll. Maybe you're into smooth tunes, fuck with the funk, but ain't about that jazz that ain't really jazz. Here's a collection of hip-hop tracks I'm currently vibing, some old, some new '“ all good. Enjoy and stuff or whatever. K see ya, bai.

      Well, holy shit.

      12 years is a G.D. feat. I'd never thunk y'all would make it this far by way of silly shenanigans, playin' the (proverbial) game and takin' far more than just names. Like so much of my money, but that was consensual. 12 years is a lot of time to go from humble beginnings to a fucking media empire (SIC... But pretty sick, too, I suppose.) I remember finding Rooster Teeth at the ripe age of 12. Well, it might have been 11 and a few months, but I'm going for something here. At this point, that's half my life, dawg. I grew up with this madness. Through all the ups and downs. Mine and yours. And I've loved (almost) every moment of it.

      I've always thought it would be rad to work for RT - for the lifestyle, the culture, and the ensuing friendships. It's that type of positivity that RT bleeds and, in turn, inspires. People find solace in genuine products - you gravitate to the things you value. So I grew up with this, but I also grew up. I've found the same joy that I got with Rooster Teeth, but you know, not with Rooster Teeth. I've made life-long friends, weeded out negativity, and found the culture that fits me. In all aspects of life, just by living life real hard. Like I said, you gravitate to these things, it's just so au natural. But I wouldn't have known what I was looking for if RT didn't give me a sweet little taste first. Life lessons are fucking sweet, man.

      So yes, I'm a fan. I think I'll always be a fan, if not for the laughs but the experiences that helped shape how I see the world, and made me who I am today. I hope our paths continue to collide ever so intimately, RT. You know my number. It's 12. It'll (prolly) change next year.

      Oh, and P.S. @RTContests

    • Remembering the last 10 years

      A decade of RedVsBlue - that's pretty mental to think about.

      I was about 10 when I saw my first RVB episode, maybe 5 or 6 episodes into the first season at the time, and hell.. on the shit list of parents' "shit you shouldn't let your kids watch" list, RVB was definitely on there. Remember Netzero? Long story short, I downloaded all the videos from my best mate's house, who of course had better internet than I. I'm sure younger me didn't understand some most of the jokes, but watching a couple of random dudes voiceover Halo was fan-fucking-tastic. Every Halo LAN party I played I named my character either Church or Grif; I thought I was the shit because I played was such a cool character. I even wrote a paper in 5th grade titled "redvsblue," about two teams of kids (go figure) playing CTF with the same storyline. Said best friend and I also set out to imitate RVB by creating our own Halo series.. that ended. Very quickly. I guess imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Along the way I created an account: "kalvin.thegoat," (at least that's what I remember it being named) with the RVB community site, and continued to watch and enjoy RvB.

      Fast forward - the site revamped and I lost my account to the ether. I watched up until the Blood Gulch Chronicles ended, but eventually stopped paying attention to the site for a quite some time. Every so often I would check the site to see if there was anything new, but I couldn't be bothered with making another account. About 3 years ago, that changed - I started getting back into the enigma that is RoosterTeeth. The RT Shorts were a big part of what got me back into RT. I went and bought all the current shorts, nine of the RVB seasons (still waiting to get that glorious Blu-Ray 10 set) and various other merch. Like all of you guys out there, I love the site and RoosterTeeth, and enjoy what they've been producing for the last 10 years. I am a pretty infinitesimal part, I usually don't participate on the site - I "lurk," but try to support and help out as much as I can. I sponsor, I try and buy as much of their stuff as I can, and I tune in every day to see what new content there is.

      How did RoosterTeeth change my life? RT has opened my eyes to a completely different part of the world - that you can be a nerd, love video games, and make a living off of doing shit you want to do. My best friend and I found something that we both love so we bonded over that, and I even got my girlfriend hooked on RT. A big part of me always daydreams about working for RoosterTeeth, making cool shit and applying my talent, but I guess until then I will continue hanging out on the site, and supporting RT like a mad man.

      Cheers for ten years of some of the raddest content, RoosterTeeth, and here's to another ten successful more!
      Glad to be apart of the ride.

        Not much, my friend! How about you?

        I think we met at the RT Merch panel - my gf and I are friends with Laurin & Chris.
