    • It's the most wonderful time... (Community Christmas Cards)

      Its time for me to start putting together a Christmas/ Hogswatch/ Wintersday/ etc card list for all you wonderful people. If you want to get a RT/AH themed card from me this year just leave me a comment. If I don't have your address we can sort that out at some point. I've watched RT content on the holidays since the 2005 PSA, and have shared it with friends outside of that old LAN group since the "Spirit of Giving" comic came out in 2008.

      So in the same spirit of giving, I want to help us all feel a little closer and loved for the holidays. Though I will probably not have questionable activities that involve a stocking and what one can only hope is a candy cane... probably.

      <3 Be Well, Do Good <3

      If you are reading this, then I want you to know one simple thing. This year, I am thankful that you exist as a person. Whether you are spending the holidays with your friends, family, at work, or alone, you matter, and I appreciate you. 


      tumblr_lcvh4zkOzD1qc718io1_500.gif


      We may not always agree, we may not always talk, but you have a spark of life in you that deserves to burn as a bright beacon of hope.

      tumblr_o76uyqilGf1v557xao1_500.gif

       

      Take some time for others and for yourself if you can, and if you get overwhelmed by it all, then by all means curl up in a comfy chair with a hot cup of cocoa and a good movie, book, game, whatever you are into. 


      If you are stuck spending the holidays alone and it's getting to you, feel free to shoot me a message. I will be doing some charity things today and Friday, but I'll be around all weekend, and will try and be available for chats or co-op gaming for anyone who needs a friend. 

    • Horrible accents and voice acting

      6 months ago

      This weekend I learned a lesson in being careful what you wish for. Sometimes it's really fun to hear a new spin on something. I mean, who didn't love old timey Burnie (or Ryan for that matter)
      group4049f46696d549c65f5832e15664afdd4ea

      Now just imagine of that was the voice Burnie was using when a series took off and he was stuck with it. That's sort of where I am right now. I've been doing VA / VO projects as I find them around the internet and IRL. Most of them you end up with a pat on the back and it's over.

      Well last night I was working on a monologue for a character from the southwest. I really went at it with gusto and went old timey gold miner with it. I was just filling in time before some plans to chat last night, banged it out in two takes, 2 minutes of edits, and uploaded to the server. I figured they would ask me to do a retake or just ignore it. Overnight it was downloaded or played live about 50 times! 


      Why of all projects is it the one where I sound like Yosemite Sam that takes off out of the gate?


      tumblr_membq1JPbz1qf4sbho1_500.gif


      I have always took the advice posted by the RT/AH staff of just creating and putting everything out there. In the beginning it will be crap, but it will improve over time if you stick to your craft. If I become type cast as a 49er though, boy will I regret taking that advice!


      Ok, seriously though, they are so right! My first one or two audiobook readings were garbage. Hell, I am still a bit rubbish, but I've come a long way, and have a lot more fun doing it. If there's a project you've been thinking of, just do it. <3

      p.s. How is everyone doing?!?! Long time no see/chat **group hugs**

    • Real talk, fave show, penguins and voice acting

      9 months ago

      StryfeRyder

      Can we be completely honest with each other for a second? Good. I've been wanting to ask you this for a while. I feel like it really says something about who we are as friends. I won't get mad, I just really need to know to have some closure. So... if you put your name in the Goblet of Fire, you would tell me right?


      tumblr_n3qlk0SU6o1sfnk1lo3_250.gif

      I am really starting to like the RT D&D show, but I certainly get miffed when it goes like last episode where the DM goes to the trouble to set up a cool mechanic and some characters are visibly pumped to set up a cool trap etc using it then it gets ruined. Once or twice is funny, but if it keeps up that the games turn into nothing but combat cycles. Eh, it's not really D&D anymore. (Of course I will still watch it) Now I really wish they had gone with Geoff's original idea and not forced them into a classic fantasy realm.I get that monkeying about is kind of their thing, but as some of them are actually players I wonder if they would have better story telling if they cared more about the universe they were in?


      tumblr_lzvf1srR1A1rqq1iao1_500.gif

      Speaking of Geoff... did you see the penguins in the last VR episode with Geoff. I have never wanted a VR game more. I would constantly die chasing the penguins out of bounds. Really thought that was cool. It was also different to see 3rd person VR. I am kind of ok with it, might be more challenging, but worth playing. I can see it would be cringeworthy to do the ice climb mechanic in first person. So they open up options this way. If it works then a lot of games could be VR ports once the graphics power catches up to it. Any game you would especially want a port of?

      In real news, I got another VA gig yesterday. It was pretty anti-climactic but I am still pumped. I'm finding it's easier to get work by charging at a low rate for the whole process than a high rate per minute of audio. It's the same cost, but the marketing is much different. I'm hoping to get good enough at these short format projects to be able to tackle a much longer script.

    • Bucket list challenge

      I was watching this music video and a shot just hit me and reminded me of the feeling playing this one show. It was an outdoor amphitheater, we were an opening act so the crowd was maybe only a few hundred. It was one of the moments where you just feel the energy of the universe. Jumping out of planes, buzzing off to Europe just for a weekend, body shots with models, Halo nights that go on till sunrise, road trips to the ocean just as an excuse to call into work. Why am I not living that life and only watching it online now? Now I feel accomplished if I make it out of bed before the shops close on the weekend.

      The world used to feel so infinite. Is this what growing up is? What has the world become?

      The+world's+still+the+same+There's+just+


      Ending this journal there would have been a perfect bookend amiright?!


      But I also refuse to end on a negative note. My problem is I've done most the things my younger self set out to do. Instead of feeling accomplished I am feeling cheated because I have less to look forward to. So I need a new bucket list. I just don't know what to add, so how about I let each of you add some things to my bucket list for me? I promise to try and do everything you guys and gals add unless it's something crazy like shoot heroin. Why would I turn my fate over to the community? Well for the obvious reason:

      Let me tell you all a little story. A story about a friend of mine who will remain unnamed, no you don't know her, she's not on the site or friends with me on socials. Our story begins. (scan down for TL:DR)


      I get out of work, it's my third late night out in a row (12hr day today). My friend has recently been venting about her depression and how she feels alone and isolated. She also recently mentioned she got Pokemon because she was hoping to meet people at the park but it was not working.


      Tonight I get out of work, she asks if on my way home I will walk this loop of stops around the park with her. It is on my way home, not out of the way, but damn I am tired. I'd already walked 6 miles at work. I could vibe out she wasn't going to go if I didn't when I tried to politely decline. Her bf was working late tonight so I figured fine, I will go be nice, keep her company until he gets out of work in an hour and catch some pokemon. As I am constantly accused of being a social butterfly, maybe I can help her make some poke-pals.


      2vb6gi9.jpg


      We're at our first stop, 2 people come over and ask what teams we are. She refuses to even look up from the phone. I declare my colors they talk for a hot min, and then get put off by her stone cold vibes. She complains that they did not say hi in the way she prefers, then yells at me for telling them she was a blue when she wouldn't talk to them. We then hit up a lured stop, a bunch of ppl are there talking and thanking the guy who popped the lure. I said a general hello to all and thanked him as well, She stood at the edge of the lure and wouldn't come closer. Then complained that no one came over and said hi. Let me clarify that she doesn't have social anxiety, she is just offended by everyone and everything. (think tumblr IRL) Now I'm home, I'm sore, tired, hungry (worked through lunch& dinner) and I don't know what to do or think about this situation. (suggestions?) keep in mind I haven't slept or ate, so if I'm somehow an asshat, it's ok to tell me.


      TL/DR

      Listen, I will help any of you with whatever problems you want. But I can only help you if you are willing to help yourself. I can't wave my magic wand and make the universe conform to your whims. If you are willing to make an effort, I will stand by you and share the burden. I will walk with you when sore, stay up late on the phone when tired, and hug you as if you were a baby penguin - whenever you need it. Just say the word <3 Waffleo <3


      But in the meantime I am going to play some Borderlands with my friends...*cough*

      I have seen a recurring theme on the site lately, and I just want to say kids, I am not mad, I am just disappointed. #DadMoment I've seen in multiple journals and forums where people are being shat on or massively downvoted for having any kind of opinion. Not people spewing hate speech or being intentional flame bait, but people voicing their thoughts, wishes, or ideals. The only thing I see as much as that are posts about how the site doesn't feel like a community anymore. Well kiddos, I hate to break it to you, but you are the ones with the power to change it. To make this community what you want. #waffleo <3


      4qDbOYc.gif


      At RTX I felt tons of good vibes, everyone was friendly and helpful. The crowds were bundles of excitement and not just people looking out for themselves. It felt like being one big happy family again. We laughed, we cried, we shared the stories of which lie we told work to get the weekend off, we played Million Dollars But while waiting in lines. At the end of that long endeavor some of you even came and stood out in the heat with hours, literally walking with death, to clap, hug, and cheer on the guardians leaving the expo hall. Why? Because we have the ability to put aside our butt-hurt and stand for something bigger, to love one another without even knowing someone personally. It's up to us to keep the magic of RTX alive and well all year long.


      We all get mad or hurt at times, if you are ever feeling like taking it out on someone here on the site, take a deep breath, count to 10, and watch this video of wombats in the snow. No one can stay mad looking at this unless they are pure evil. If you just need to vent or blow off steam, hey come here and take it out on me, I don't mind, and it will help keep the community from becoming a toxic place.


    • Mornings, Georgia, books, and mistaken identity

      tumblr_naocs4E1DN1tiumj2o2_500.png


      I had to get up early Monday morning. If you don't know me... well. Let's just say, I am bad at mornings. Like imagine someone who is just waking up from a coma, in a foreign country, after traveling in time 100 years. That person would be better at their morning than me. Have a cool oversleeping story? Share it with me!


      I made the mistake of downloading Civ V again, my personal best is an Immortal difficulty domination win, but seriously who has the time for that. I mean who has the time for anything. I started a game the other night, but I will probably not get back to it for a while. Honestly I've been thinking about getting GO just so I can go to the stops and meet cool people. The way people talk about it just sort of reminds me of RTX, but also I live in the middle of nowhere...


      I want you all to know, I am really trying to adult, but like, when it comes to being good at life, I am kind of like Agent Georgia.

      tumblr_inline_mihz78zgDp1qz4rgp.gif
      It sounds like a good idea, and then you do it, and then it is never a good idea. Maybe someday I will be able to handle all of the things, but lately I am happy if I get more than 5 hours of sleep and have time to eat at least once a day. At the very least I've been making sure to comment on at least 5 things on here per day, so if you want to complain about the site not being active, don't blame me, I am putting in the effort, <3 you all.


      Fun fact, multiple times at RTX I had people tweeting me they were trying to find me while I was talking with them or just after. Before PAX I am going to get some shirts made up that have Stryfe on them. The only person who recognized me at all was @Caiti which was pretty nice, but I am thinking I need to get commission as a new avatar on here and twitter so ppl know to look for the hat and beard. Anyone feel like doing a commission for me? I will have some dollar bills after Friday. I'd rather support the community than take selfie. #waffleo

    • Steam bans, RWBY sale, and downtown Austin

      I have a funny feeling I am going to get a steam ban. I miss all the cool people I used to see on here. So I've started adding them on steam. It has text and voice chat, multiplayer games, and I still have game codes on there I can give away. However, adding a bunch of people all at once, probably a good way to get reported... so we'll see. But let's be friends!!!


      I hope it works out though because RWBY is on steam sale right now half off, and has 4 player co-op, so we could be all play together, need someone to be the bumble to your bee? Add me on steam!


      I had a long post I wanted to write about community involvement and a project I want to work on but... tomorrow perhaps. The skies are clearing and downtown Austin is calling my name. I even found a place that sells bertie bots every flavor beans! there's so much more to downtown than meets the eye!

I'd just like to let you know how glad I am to be friends with you, your level of awesome is through the roof, I love how much thought you put into recognizing community members for stuff they do that you want to give them credit for for essentially being an above average community member, And thank you for starting up the marathon stream, that was a fun way to show support for monty in that time of need and also for getting to know other community members that i otherwise wouldn't have met, as well as learning the joys of tuning into streams. This may seem very WaF day-esque, but fear not because i was stuck doing hw during the day and didn't have time to come up with meaningful stuff to say. And also, I have a permit, it says "I can do what I want"

I'm no good at replying nor am I good at starting conversations. I'm introverted as introverts can be but I like you and I hope we can become friends. *shrugs shoulders* I'll toss you the invite, do with it what you will. *skips off into some far off land of unicorns and rainbows* You could be here too, if you became my friend. xD So shneaky with mah favors.

      Book review: First Light; G. Wellum.

      Just about to finish (last few pages really) and he is basically detailing his experiences of the war. He doesn't talk about everything that happened, but his account works. From the beginning of WW2 and his pilot training to Operation Pedestal. It just talks (and a bit sadly) his experiences of his comrades being killed off and how he just learns to deal with it.. Followed by war fatigue. More of an interesting read than you'd think.

      Just finished Broken Circle. You probably made my year to be honest. Now for Assassin Creed

        So glad to hear it mate! It's very good to know you're enjoying them. I was really nervous about picking good ones. Let's hope we can find a way to make this year even better.

        stuck in a boring meeting at work, good time to catch up with my RT pals smiley8.gif It's going to be an insanely busy year/semester for me. Just hoping I can offset some work hard with some play hard. Hopefully things for you stay slow enough you can enjoy yourself. smiley13.gif

      Unfortunately I shan't be at PAX East. I have too many bills and not enough money already. smiley0.gif

        You will be sorely missed, I hope bills aren't interfering with too many things. I guess I will try and live without an Arcy fix until RTX. If there's any pax exclusive merc/etc you end up having an eye on give me a shout I'll try and nab them for you.

      Hey mate! Wonderful to hear from you and was fantastic to meet you at PAX. I am always down to chat good sir and honestly I may not be the best photographer, especially this year haha, but I'm more then happy to talk about it.

      I use a Panasonic Lumix (I can't think of the model off the top of my head). It may not be as good as an SLR but it was one of the best "point and shoot" cameras at the time when I picked it up. It makes for a fantastic con camera IMO because its compact, takes high quality pics from close or far, and shoots video in HD.

      I only really have two issues with it. Number one is I wish it was just a tad smaller (so I could drop it in my pocket or something) but the carrying case I have for it works just fine and can be slung easily. The other issue, is like most cameras unfortunately, its very hard to take a great photo in low light at long range (I.E. for main theater panels and the concerts). You have to either open the shutter more (and get blurry photos if people are moving a lot) or increase your ISO, which makes them a little grainy and less clear the higher you go. However, once I've taken a few test pics and found a decent balance I can usually get some good photos (not great, but good enough). This year though wasn't really my best for photos though.

      I am considering getting a new camera fairly soon as I'm hoping with new technology over the past few years I can get something even smaller that has even better low light capability. I guess we'll see lol.

      So how are you?

    The bird or the cage?

    Well it looks like bird wins, but I tend to pick the cage. It's more darkly poetic.
