      Hey guys, it looks like a few of the non-RT projects I worked on in the last 12 months are coming out at the same time at the end of the year. I don't really talk much about these projects while I working on them but I wanted to let you know about them in case you can't get enough of me. And really, who could possibly get enough of me? Besides Ashley. And everyone in my family. And Gus. Besides them.


      Slash: The Movie
      I was asked to be in this film which is a coming of age story set against the culture of slash fan fiction. It's getting great reviews and is the only thing I have ever been in that the Village Voice reviewed positively. That's progress. It opens in theaters this week. I am going to be at the Alamo Drafthouse screenings of the film this Saturday night. Come out and see me if you are in Austin!

      12 Deadly Days
      I am in a Blumhouse (Purge, Paranormal Activity) horror anthology that airs for 12 days leading up to Christmas. Each episode is a standalone horror short with a running theme. This was fun to do since I had never done horror before and Blumhouse has made some of the modern horror classics. I am one of the leads in the second episode.





      ????
      So there's a movie I worked on earlier this year, which I described on the podcast as one of the craziest experiences that I have ever had. Unfortunately, it's a big studio movie and it's not entirely clear what I can or can't say about my involvement even though it's about to come out. But once it's all clear for me to talk about, then I will discuss it. I have a sneaking suspicion that I haven't been told how to promote because I didn't make the final cut of the movie, but the experience and the people I worked alongside made it more than worth it. I am going to the cast & crew screening next week, so at the very least you will know what it is then. No, it's not Rogue One.


      I have some other stuff I have done that is still not out. These things take a while. Everything listed here was something I shot 6-12 months ago at this point. I do want to say that a big reason I get cast in these productions (besides my stunning looks and talent) is because of all the support you all give me in my RT work. I am very grateful for that.

      You should go check out his channel and say hi in the comments. Every video he posts is insane.


      He has so many flight hours in a helicopter, it's like an extension of his body. Wait until you see the stuff he does in the video linked above. I didn't even know some of that was possible. Check out the move at 3:05. Crazy.

      No journal yesterday and sorry for the lousy title for this. I am a little creatively spent at this point. I have been writing like mad on Lazer Team sequel this week. Wrapping up this first draft very soon. It's great to get back to writing again. The company has been really great about allowing our writers the time they need to focus on scripts -- and I am definitely benefiting from that.


      Heading to Vancouver for VIFF for a few days. Writing is awesome, but does not make for very interesting vlogs.


      Anyone in Vancouver coming to the film festival? I don't have time to organize a meet-up, but if someone local wants to suggest a place Monday night and be able to organize it, I would definitely show up.

      Hey Burnie, I just listened to the latest RT podcast and heard you mention Portillos. It's very popular in the Chicago area, where it started, and since there's one not ten minutes away from me, I'd like to recommend a potential food choice. Get the Italian Beef or Chicago Dog with everything on it. Both are delicious. Thanks for your time. -Alec

      I didn't realize how much I wanted a remastered Fallout 3/New Vegas until you mentioned it on twitter. What would be even better would be a remaster of the original two turn based Fallout for consoles. I was never able to get into the games because I had played Fallout 3 first and that was my first experience with the franchise. I'm stoked to see Fallout 4 coming but I think that remaster of the original two for consoles would be amazing and I would throw even more money at Bethesda.

      Hi Burnie, in a past podcast you talked about writing a story based around a time machine that sends messages into the past. The machine tells the operator "Turn off the machine. Run."

      Anyway, I submitted your idea to Writing Prompts on reddit to see what people could come up with. Then I realized I should probably ask your permission first. I realize you aren't likely to read this but I felt that I had to try. If you want I will remove the post from reddit.

      Supreme Court Opinion Makes Prosecution of Internet Trolls More Difficult

      *Disclaimer – I am not licensed to practice law. The following is a reflection of my reading of a Supreme Court opinion, and should not be relied on by anyone. I am not advertising my services, seeking compensation, or looking for notoriety: I am offering an explanation of the significant legal principles as I seem them for informative purposes.*

      Today the Supreme Court ruled in Elonis v. United States that a law often used to prosecute internet users who make threatening comments over the Internet could not be used unless the perpetrator knew the language to be threatening. Prior to this ruling, most courts held that an internet threat is illegal if a reasonable person (e.g. the person being threatened, other site-users) would feel threatened. The court today, however, found this rule was not an accurate interpretation of the statute, and required that any person convicted of making internet threats must be “blameworthy in mind before he can be found guilty.†While this ruling is a win for internet users who say the threats they make over the internet are intended for therapeutic or cathartic reasons, I am concerned that Internet threats are often made in passing while read quite seriously, making prosecution difficult under any other interpretation. This ruling requires authorities to demonstrate that a threat was made to be taken seriously, or at least made with the awareness that it might be taken seriously—a more difficult standard to prove unless the defendant admits what he or she was thinking when the threat was made.

      The facts of the case are that Anthony Elonis was arrested for 5 counts of violating 18 USC §875(c) which makes it a crime to transmit “any communication containing any threat to injure the person of another.†The statute was enacted in 1939 to apply to telecommunications that existed at the time, but is still used for federal prosecutions regarding threats made over the internet. Elonis made threats towards his coworkers, resulting in his termination from the amusement park where he worked. He also made threats against his wife, saying “Fold up your [Restraining Order] and put it in your pocket/ Is it thick enough to stop a bullet?†and providing details to the public on his Facebook page detailing what he believed to be the most effective way to fire mortar rounds at his wife’s home and not get caught. He made threats against Police; as well as an FBI agent that visited his house about the threats, posting to his Facebook after the incident “So the next time you knock, you best be serving a warrant/ And bring yo’ SWAT and an explosives expert while you’re at it/ Cause little did y’all know, I was strapped wit’ a bomb/Why do you think it took me so long to get dressed with no shoes on?/ I was jus’ waitin’ for y’all to handcuff me and pat me down/ Touch the detonator in my pocket and we’re all goin’.…†Finally, Elonis commented on another Facebook user’s post, “That’s it, I’ve had about enough/ I’m checking out and making a name for myself/ Enough elementary schools in a ten mile radius to initiate the most heinous school shooting ever imagined/ And hell hath no fury like a crazy man in a Kindergarten class/ The only question is… which one?â€

      At trial, the jury was instructed that Elonis was guilty of breaking the law if a reasonable person would have understood that the posts he was making were real threats, which are not protected by the First Amendment to the Constitution. Elonis argued that the word “threat†indicates that he must purposefully or knowingly make the threat to cause someone to feel threatened; a fact which was not determined at trial and which Elonis argues he did not intend. The government argued that Elonis’s purpose in making the argument did not matter because the statute does not require “an intent to threaten†only that the communication includes a threat. The trial judge agreed with the government’s argument, thus instructing the jury that Elonis was guilty if a reasonable person would have understood his words as threats. The Supreme Court overruled this jury instruction, sending the case back to a lower court to determine if Elonis was guilty based on some other interpretation of the statute.

      The lower court now must consider whether to adopt Elonis’s interpretation of the statute and require that internet threats be made with the purpose or knowledge of being threats in order to be illegal. If this interpretation is adopted, Elonis is less likely to be convicted because the jury is more likely to take him at his word that he did not intend—and did not know—that anyone would take his posts seriously. The Court could also choose a middle ground between Elonis’s and the Government’s argument by applying the standard of recklessness. Elonis recklessly threatened his victims if: 1) He had a substantial awareness that his words might be taken as threats; and, 2) A reasonable person would have understood that Elonis’s words were threats. This interpretation would likely result in a conviction because the jury would be allowed to infer that while it may not have been Elonis’s purpose to threaten, and while he may not have been certain that his words would be taken as threats, he must have at least been aware that his victims might interpret his words as threats. While the recklessness standard is likely to result in a conviction, the recklessness standard is more likely than the purposeful or knowing standard to be found a misinterpretation of the statute (again) or an unconstitutional burden on Elonis’s right to free speech. The Supreme Court has not offered a definitive ruling, only saying that the method used in this case of interpreting a threat through the eyes of the threatened (the same way most lower courts had interpreted the law) is incorrect and must be retried.

      Obviously, the legality of Internet threats is an important issue to anyone interested in safe, well-meaning, and healthy Internet ecosystems. This case highlights the difficulties in prosecu

      Hello Burnie, I have something to ask of you and other Rooster Teeth members. I'm planning on making a RPG tribute game of influential internet stars, such as the members of Rooster Teeth. So I was wondering would you guys mind if I put one of you, or one of the characters created by you guys, into the game? I can understand if RT asks me not to do it, hence why I wanted to run this by you first.

      Why doesn't Doctor Emily Gray fix Lopez's voice box.

      How about if Church said that to like Simons and Simons tries to tell Sarge who ignores him and then 'comes up with the idea himself'. Then what if when she did, Lopez sounded like Church, then everyone was really creeped out and Lopez says a shit load of really mean stuff to all the reds that Sarge will just blame on the Blues. Then Doc Gray turns the Spanish back on. Just think of the funny possibilities.

      Burnie,
      You may not read this but there is a girl in Rhode Island that is a huge fan of all things RT. Last year she was diagnosed with chronic Lyme Disease and has been unable to do the things a normal girl should be able to do. Tomorrow, Wednesday May 13, is her 16th birthday. She will not be able to celebrate it as she should due to her disease. Furthermore, tomorrow she will begin using IV bags that will make her feel like she has the flu. I have talked very briefly with her and she asked me to contact you to thank you (for what exact purpose I do not know), and said to ask for a temporary follow on Twitter @Lindsey_Clark11 or a friend request on this site. Her RT username is lindsey_11. What I am trying to do with this message is make her tomorrows featured user, but I don't know if I'm too late to make that deadline. I encourage you to please read the rest of her story as she said it on her Tumblr loserwithlyme.tumblr.com/

      Hi Burnie,

      A while back I watched a podcast in which you discussed a scene you shot with Joel, where you panned the camera around and all the people in the background flopped on the floor (you were discussing how gross the sound of so many people falling to the ground was). It was an apocalyptic video, I hope you understand which one im talking about.
      I found that scene very well done and I'd like to share it with a friend who's really into filmmaking, but I cannot for the love of God find the video again or the podcast with the link to it.
      I was wondering if you know where I can find it again, so I can share it with my friend.
      Thank you very much!

      Hey Burnie, I was just watching your talk at Texas State (great job, by the way) and just wanted to clarify something about the Wow! signal since I figured you'd be sort of interested. The Wow! signal isn't actually decodable since it didn't record any form of modulation (AM or FM). It's also not that nobody recorded where the signal came from; it's just that in order to locate the signal's origin it had to be detected twice by two different satellites, and it was only detected by one. This could mean that one of the two malfunctioned or that the signal ended between the time it stopped being picked up by the first satellite and the time it would have started being picked up by the second. Still, we can determine that it came from one of two places from just the one satellite. Either the middle of nowhere, or somewhere in Sagittarius (I think). Not trying to be an asshole on the Internet who has to correct everyone, just thought you'd want to know in case you didn't already.
