A movie set might be the only place in the world where you regularly hear the phrase "Great! That was perfect. Let's do it one more time."

The vlog today featured this dude:
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.

We had some fun on the podcast this week and we didn't want to tip off the viewers too early. I realize that some of you may have missed the big reveal live but there's no way to make it a big reveal if we don't keep the lid on it to some degree.
Also, thanks for all the compliments for the jokes I told on the podcast. Literally my favorite jokes. Although I don't think many people get the first one.

A great number of you have asked me the name of the song that serves as the unofficial theme to my vlogs. The track in question is "Go To Sleep #6", which I found on a royalty – free site that allows me to buy songs for the purpose of putting them in videos. So here's a link to the entry for Go To Sleep #6 but be aware that they are charging $70 for a 60-second snippet of the song if you want to buy it. The high price is to offset the royalty free nature of the track.

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.

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.

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.
