This week I feel pretty good about the vlogs balance of company info and fun adventure.

I know it has never been the most consistently released series, but I am fairly certain the next Game Time (with Greg Miller) will be the final one. At least in its current incarnation. I love the sit down deep dives with really talented people, but I think there's a better format for it.
I really enjoyed the vlog with Barbara during the Always Open pilot episodes. I would love to make a (publicly available) spiritual successor to Game Time in that format.
EDIT: Used wrong version of "its"

On this week's podcast, I cut the label off my gatorade bottle and a lot of people asked me why. I wasn't really thinking about it. It most productions, you remove or alter the label on stuff that appears on camera, so I just have gotten in the habit of removing labels from most of my drinking bottles, even when not on camera. I don't have anything against Gatorade products in general.

so as you can see we have new custom emojis for the site.
Now, many of you will no doubt ask "why did they bother to add Emoji's to the site rather than fix [insert a specific issue here] Which is clearly a much bigger problem?"
There are obviously a lot of things that we need to repair on the site and development is an ongoing process. A top priority was to get the video player up to par with players on other video – related sites. Once that was completed, we had to make some fixes to bring the player up to the expectations of the members of the. Rooster teeth site.
Beyond that, Emoji's were added because they were simple and they were fun.
As the new development team starts to make progress on the site it's important that they balance the technical progress with enjoyable progress as well.
Once the player fixes from the upgrade are complete we will be able to move on to some of the other issues that exist on the site.

Exceed definitely. Outlast is a different animal. Fifteen+ seasons is very, very rare territory in any medium.

Going to answer this with a quote from a fitness magazine. I think it's a great way to look at motivation, which is not something you can control:
"Fuck motivation. it’s a fickle and and unreliable little dickfuck and isn’t worth your time.
Better to cultivate discipline than to rely on motivation. force yourself to do things. force yourself to get up out of bed and practice. Force yourself to work. Motivation is fleeting and it’s easy to rely on because it requires no concentrated effort to get. Motivation comes to you, and you don’t have to chase after it.
Discipline is reliable, motivation is fleeting. The question isn’t how to keep yourself motivated. It’s how to train yourself to work without it."
Thanks, Gus. Just keep pluggin' away. You'll get there.

I'm usually racing to hit my calorie move goal by the end of the day. I don't drink really. So I basically just browse the web. The say you aren't meant to look at screens right before falling asleep but I do it a lot.

Nah. Part of the Q&A sessions at live events are about the interaction. I know people outside the events will often criticize the question askers, but it's not their job to be entertaining. That's our responsibility. If questions get too bland, we'll just talk for 15 minutes before taking the next one.
The only thing I hate is the fake "oh is it my turn?" "is that what my voice sounds like?" performance garbage that some people do. I have warned audiences many times that once you get to that mic you are part of the show. I have no problem blasting you in front of 5000 people the same way I do to Gavin or Joel or Gus. It's how we show love. Basically, if you do something to slow down the energy in the room we will quickly move to get it back.
Ashley's cat Nutmeg loves me, but she wakes me up every single day and yells at me. We get in an argument every morning. Somehow, Ash sleeps through it.

The single hardest I have ever laughed was when I interviewed Kara for the What Do You Know show about guy movies. Her Back To The Future answers were so funny and when she said which way the car travels through time, I lost it. I literally could not stop laughing for ten minutes. They cut all of that out because my host character is meant to be supportive and deadpan, but that was just too much for me.
Nope. Vines are hard. I have lots of respect for Vine artists.

This might sound rude, but I've been trying to find a way to say this for a long time: I never open the flash drives people hand me. It's not that I don't like to review people's work, it's that I don't trust a flash drive I don't know in any of my computers. It's far better to have an online repository and just send that to me in a link. Sorry.
I also don't eat baked goods that people give us at conventions. But I do appreciate them. And Blaine eats it all.

Sure. Reviews don't scare me. I think I said this on a podcast after our festival run, but it's inevitable to get some bad reviews. People are brutal when talking about movies. A videogame can have parts that are broken or missing on day one and still get a 9/10. Movies don't get that same pass. I am just very happy the audience likes it. It may seem like a forgone conclusion that the RT audience would like it, but that's not at all the case. There's been plenty of shows our existing audience hated. If that had happened with Lazer Team, we would have had a big problem on our hands.

We have tested cooking in a couple of different formats. I think the people who enjoy cooking most don't really have time to pilot a new show that far off the beaten path.
Pancake podcast is this week and I am super excited.

Sure. We moved in the middle of last year so we had to change our setup, but I can tell her you would like to start again. I'm a little reluctant to admit that I don't play that many games anymore. In the last six months I have played FO4, some Just Cause 3 and a smattering of smaller Steam games. It's one the reasons I'm not ever on The Patch. I don't have much to talk about.

Last few years I have focused on work in front of the camera rather than behind. 2016 will put me back in the Director's chair.

Probably the Carribean for vacation and Australia for just general travel. Once, I went down to New Zealand and rode the train from Christchurch to Greymouth. It was an amazing journey. If you go, eat the whitebait.

It depends on the job. If you mean a personality/artist job then there is no requirement. A lot of our personalities never went to university. Some didn't even graduate high school.

Matt was telling me that the box office numbers in UK were higher than in US even though it has 1/5 the population. My response was "RTUK?", he punched me.
I would love to have the US show be a traveling show the way MineCon does. But I know how radically inefficient that model is. Hopefully we can do more touring-style events like the LT screenings, Let's Play Live and Dude Soup Live.

I wish I had a better answer than "I know it when I see it" but that's really the main answer. Also, our writers have to be fast. It's just the nature of what we do.

There's nothing you can do about it. Some things are constant on the internet. You can't ever say what the weather is like where you are, because people will just tell you why it's worse where they are. You also can't mention an event without people being upset that you aren't coming to where they live. No one sees all the other responses and obvious jokes when they are making their single post.
