      Edit: username changes? Um. Yes. No more txbosox, hello dapprvilln.


      Hey all, been quite a while since I've posted anything. Was on the site since Camp Camp's back - figured I'd say hello. Funny, my last post was about E3, 3 years ago, this journal is days after E3 again.


      How's everyone doing?


      Still alive, can't complain too much. Turned 30 last year. Crazy that 1/3 of my adult life has been spent enjoying RT content. I know my account says 2008, but I did have an older account that I forgot the creds to. Meh, I'm not enjoying RvB as much as I used to, but their other creations, Camp Camp and RWBY I'm up to date and awaiting new episodes. Love the Let's Play stuff. 


      Been playing bass still, just goofing around with my buddy over in TN (on drums). Built a new PC recently. I'll post some photos later of the build or link my soundcloud for the bass stuff if this journal has any interest.


      I'll keep it brief for now, will try and update some more stuff later on. Explore the site more, a lot has changed since I really dug around.

    • E3 stuff..

      Think I'm more excited about Fable Legends than the Halo Chief pack. I'm liable to get both, but the idea of having a DM in a video game against a co-op team (like playing D&D tabletop) appeals to me more. I've been trying to play more board games, but it's difficult in a shithole town with few friends that are into it.

      Destiny still looks good of course. I can't wait for that. Ready for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel (dunno what E3 presence they have this year for that game). Anyways, that's my short list of games I'm aware of and ready for. I'm sure something else will catch my eye.

      Who all is going?! Hit me up on Twitter or something (@joshhearne). May do the race thing with Jack and them if I can. Going to try and make the Barlympics too. Tweet me, find me and say hello, find me at a bar, come by and have a drink with me. I'll be the guy with the big scar on the back of his head.

      Also, add me on XBL (XB1, no 360), dapprvilln. I still don't game much, but I enjoy playing with other people cooperatively mostly.

    • RT Android App

      We really need one. Since they're pushing sponsor perks, an Android app would be great. Plus I'm assuming the iOS app needs a refresh.

      The only feature I want really is for there to be Chromecast support. I like to stream YouTube On my TV, and even with ads, it is way more convenient than using the RT player here. I like making a one use playlist and just letting it eat.

    • Lunar Eclipse

      5 years ago

      dapprvilln

      This week a lot of you probably heard about the lunar eclipse or "Blood Moon". The moon faintly glows red because the only light hitting it is the diffused light from Earth having eclipsed the Sun. The only light that gets there is passing through our atmosphere, and so that light is a culmination of the simultaneous sunrises and sunsets happening on Earth at that time. That light is in the red spectrum, so we only see the shades of red to hit the moon.

      Started shooting just shy of midnight here in Texas, and stayed out til about 3-3:30am. Wasn't too tired to continue, too cold. Didn't prep enough for the weather, that cold snap hit us that afternoon. Last thing on my mind was warmer shoes and socks. Cool part about this eclipse is that it's the first of 4 over an 18 month period. There'll be other chances.

    • RTX 2014, but wait, there's more!

      5 years ago

      dapprvilln

      Who else is going? Been to all of them so far, why not keep the streak alive? Roommate situation is pretty well figured out, just a couple things to line up before we book a hotel. Hopefully we get some more details on what all will be there this year.

      Guess it's been a while since I posted anything here so here's an update.

      Going to be doing the Fit For RTX (or whatever it was/is called) thing like they did last year. I started losing weight after RTX and last year I dropped 30 lbs. I've managed to stay there over winter, but it's time to get into gear and lose the last bit I want to drop (20 lbs more). I've cut down sodas to a once a week kind of treat and they're not at all that appealing to me anymore. Sweet tea is still there, but no where near as often as before. Tons of water. I've been watching how much I eat and that's been one of the biggest factors in how I've gotten to where I am. Will be getting back on a treadmill here soon, but hopefully running outside when it warms up some more. Doing some other workouts in the mean time. Might join a gym after RTX...gotta save money where I can for the trip/hotel costs.

      Still doing some astrophotography, but nothing really substantial since my Big Bend trip. Haven't played SWTOR in a couple months. Played the opening day of the new expansion for subscribers with guildmates and haven't touched it since. I did pick up a PS3 a couple weeks back. If anyone wants to play or add me on PSN, I'm "dapprvilln". Just send a message mentioning RoosterTeeth or something. I don't play a whole bunch, though, I'm pretty casual.

      Been watching the RT/Patch Podcasts when I get the chance to. Glad they upgraded their sound equipment and stopped doing visual things on them so much. The lapel mics were the main reason I didn't bother with the new Podcast. The quality now is so much better, plus it seems like their YouTube archive of the podcast is a better quality. Before it looked like they were recording a streamed version and uploading that.

      Also, fucking snow. It's snowed 3x this year so far, and that alone was over a 3 week span. What the hell, nature. I haven't seen it snow 3x in my life before 2014. The first snow actually stuck and was fairly substantial. I know people up north were giving us hell for our reaction to it, but fuck you, it's goddamned magical. The others were just quick snow showers that didn't stick at all. Chance of wintery stuff tonight too.

      It's been a while, what's up with you guys?

    • Change!

      dapprvilln

      So I've been making some changes in my life recently since RTX. I've cut soda's and sugary drinks out completely...for 3 weeks now I've only had water. I've been watching what I eat and counting calories. Also, walking more. I got a FitBit and have been trying to hit 10K steps a day, but my minimum that I'll do is 7500/day. Workdays are pretty sedentary for me usually so daily walks are a must. But next week I'll be starting C25K.

      I started off at 225 lbs (this was pre-RTX, normal weight). Today I'm at 209. Been monitoring what I eat on MyFitnessPal, keeping track of my activities on Fitbit and weight with a Withings scale. So far I've not gone over my calorie goal, but I have had morning weigh ins where I had gained a little. So I think I'll be doing afternoon workouts only, to burn my lunches off and eat dinner when I get home.

      Ultimate goal is to get around 175-180 without trying to bulk up much muscle, just tone up and burn off the excess. Immediate goal is to get under 200. I haven't been that low in weight since after my surgery.

    • RTX!

      dapprvilln

      Is closing in! Getting my car in shape to make the (fairly) short trip to Austin. Barring any more sickness and having to burn my last vacation day, I'll be heading over on the 4th and heading back on Sunday night/afternoon. So damn tired of being sick, summer colds are the freaking worst.

      I don't have much that I'm crazy about in the panel listings. Hoping that this year's main exhibition hall has more to see. Will be checking out the tabletop games going on for sure. Need to spend some more time with the calendar seeing if there's anything I missed.

      Anyone going into Austin early for the 4th want to hang out hit me up. I'm not planning on drinking much, but I can have a couple drinks and dinner somewhere.

      If you see a guy at RTX from behind with a scar at the base of his hairline going up into a Red Sox hat, it's most definitely me. Don't worry about trying to remember my username or pronouncing it. Barbara called me tox-box at RTX'11. Josh works fine. smiley0.gif

      Yeah, you're pretty much right. The new job has taken up a lot of my time, what with me crashing at a friends house so I don't have to drive 45 mins to work everyday. :P

      I've been good though! Lovin' the work still. Our biggest festival of the year is over, so it's pretty much smooth sailin' til the end of my work term.

      Got some fun shit goin' on lately. RvBOR this weekend, PAX Prime next weekend, then officially moving into the apartment the weekend after! I'm pretty stoked. :D

      Shit dude, Verizon's apparently gonna nix the unlimited data for their plans and going to tiered prices.

      I may want to just upgrade to the Droid phone now and get my contract started before the 7th of July. Otherwise, I'll have to pay for specific gigabytes of data usage.

      Like I mentioned before though, I could upgrade to the Droid now then the Pre3 later. FIGURES they fuck with this data plan pricing a couple weeks before the Pre3 is rumored to launch. smiley4.gif

      What do you think?

      Every day. I started reading it when I was working for our local Fire Investigator back in '07. I always knew immediately of any fire line injuries or deaths, what fires were where, and how bad they were getting. While I was working for the feds as a wild land firefighter, reading that report was usually a good way to figure out where I was about to be sent, based on if the personal number on a fire was going up or down.

      I would think it'd be easier when they're a bit older like that. With Gemma bein' only like 7 or 8 months old, I just can't tell how she's gonna handle it. Plus, this is the first dog I've had that's been fixed while I was coherent enough to know the difference. smiley6.gif

      That +1 funny was directed at the first part of that comment, lol. Yeah, that was me. smiley6.gif

      But yeah, dude. Japan is apparently used to this kinda shit. I mean not on this level or anything, but they've earthquake proofed a lot of their buildings and have drills every month for earthquakes and tsnuamis. I even heard a news correspondent who was at the high ground during the direct aftermath and he said most of the people were goin' about like nothing was wrong, lol.

      That sucks that it's the worst since the bombs. Not to lessen the lives lost during WWII, but that was a bit of an overkill response to what they did to Pearl Harbor. They did, however poke us with a stick, we just replied in kind with nukes, lol. What gets me, is that there's a good chunk of people saying that Japan deserves this after what happened in Pearl Harbor. The ignorance of those people angers me. I can't believe they can look at anything that has happened with any sort of glee.

      Japan has always seemed like a proud country, which is why I can see them not asking for relief funds, but I'm glad their not proud enough to turn away help that has arrived. I fear for the future, after this has all finally washed over, where they have to recover economically.

      Well, right about now, I was originally planning to be announcing that tickets for RvB:TX were on sale. Unfortunately, that's not going to be the case. You might have heard that the RT staff has their own event planed for late May. We, the organizers of RvB:TX, don't feel it will be possible to compete with a larger and better organized event, so we're officially canceling our event.

      But all is not lost! We're keeping the group page for two reasons:

      1) RvB:TX will now be a hub for all RT fans in and around Texas. We'll keep people up to date on RT related events in and around Texas, from small meet ups to the RoosterTexas event the staff is planning. If you have not already done so, please watch the group to stay up to date on the news.

      2) We're planning a smaller get together in Austin this winter. It won't be as big as our original plans, but it'll still be a chance for fans to get together and have fun.

      For more details, please see the journal here.
