    One of my favorite parts of this video is that "high speed catamaran" just means a motorized catamaran instead of one with with a sail.

    Woot! There I am! I thought I saw Ellie working the Vlog cam as I left (I'm the guy 'peacing out' at about the 9:55 - after Burnie was kind enough to stop and briefly chat after I missed out on getting into the *actual* meet-and-greet queue. Signed my Pax day-pass and humoured my "business card").

    As for my outfit... It was a failed cosplay attempt at one of my RWBY OCs... I ran out of time to make armour and props unfortunately... ^^;

    Thanks again Burnie!

    I love how in the beginning you can see how overtaken Ashley is by her work when she realizes she hasn't said hello to Ellie yet. There is a lot of work you do, thanks Ashley!

    tbh I am unsure why they didn't edit out Ashley having to be prompted to say hi to Ellie. it didn't add anything to the video but may have prompted some of the Ashley vs Ellie comments I have seen on this. (Ashley is so busy at the Know that it isn't surprising that she was still working frantically right before being on a plane for so many hours) I don't think that it should be read into as a slight, but it did seem weird in the moment. 

    *** disclaimer that I don't think that there is any actual issues with the group and I know platonic friendship is a thing....

      Sometimes when people don't have enough going on in their own lives, they find themselves treating real people like TV shows for their entertainment. I'd take a step back and think a bit if I were you.

      connorhawke I'm not treating them like tv characters, I am commenting on something I think should have been edited out of the video because it made someone look rude for no reason. Had there been a clip of Ashley picking her nose I would have wanted them to cut it as well. And I tried to make it clear I thought it didn't really mean anything, but if I was causing drama or something, I'm sorry.

      I have to disagree with you entirely. I think the fact that Ashley is still working is awesome and amazing, it's also an important part of their lives. It's video proof of how hard the folks at RT actually work and it's impressive. Not enough credit is given to the folks at RT, including all the behind the scenes people, for the sheer and almost overwhelming amount of RT content there is out there and the amount of work that must actually entail.

    Great video Ellie!
    One suggestion (seeing it more in the comments): 

    The background music sometimes dominates the shot, making you (and others, especially when they're not close to the mic) hard to hear.

      So...next time guys - instead of downvoting the spambots comment - which does nothing

      You should try clicking the little flag next to "Mod This", which actually gets shit done

      Unless of course you're already doing that

      I guess not, she has quite the likable personality! however I think most people on camera in  RT do.

    Remember Burnie, you only need to be able to swim faster than your friends. (but tbh always remember to equalize, make sure to ask every question to your instructor so you're clear, and have fun!)

    First time I have ever been hyped for "next time on the vlog" but damn if scuba diving isn't one of the most fascinating things someone can do. Wish I could do it more but the Midwest isn't exactly zone one for that sort of activity.

    Burnie and Ashley are like eccentric parents doting on Ellie, their college bound kid or something. And I feel like you can make an art critique thesis on Burnie's hair. Speaking Typing of which, Ashley looked like a character straight out of the Lord of the Rings in the beginning there, super awesome.

    Obviously there is no reason to be worried and I hate bringing up something so stupid, but I can't help but feel a little bad for Ashely. Ellie is incredibly charming and charismatic (at least on camera) and seems to be spending a lot of time with Burnie, so it might be inevitable for her to be left out every now and then. It's funny that Google even autocompletes "Burnie and..." to "Burnie and Ellie" due to the sheer amount of content they've been in together.

    In any case, I don't want to stir anything up, this is simply the impression I get from the limited insight into their life I get from the content they produce; their private life is their own.

    I guess I just miss the awesome Duo Dynamic that Burnie and Ashely displayed on the Amazing Race and crave for them to appear on content together again, but with how busy the two of them are it seems very unlikely. Oh well, it is a definite highlight whenever the two of them appear together on podcasts, so I will contend myself to those treats.


    ...though I would love a follow-up prank series where Burnie and Ashely go around and cause mischief around the company much like how they did to Gus and Esther during the Streetpass Incident.

      Or men and women can be platonic friends and coworkers without the need to bring up any of this?

      This is the exact reason why I was being so careful with my wording -.-

      What I meant is that I would be happy to see Ashley and Burnie appear on camera together more often since seeing him doing these crazy things together with Ellie reminded me of the Amazing Race. I don't mean to discredit Ellie, I personally love the direction she has taken the Burnie Vlogs in, nor did I mean to imply anything, which is why I put so many disclaimers in my original comment because I knew that it would be misinterpreted.

      Sorry if I didn't make myself clear enough.

    Man that was a great panel, I'm still a bit mad that everytime I swung by the Hanabee booth the line was either Capped or Burnie, Ashley and Ellie weren't around and no one knew where they were roaming, so for the first time in four Pax Aus' I didn't get a photo with the RT team...Oh well.

    As a Melbournian, I found it hard to resist going "I know that place" every time the scene changed. I recognized almost everywhere they went. It was so great meeting all 3 of them at PAX Aus. They all wrote custom MDB cards for me and signed them. :)

    So on this trip you gained the skill tree accomplishments of scuba diving advancement and given basic throwable ranged weaponry. At least you now know you have less charisma in airports too, at least in parts of the Southern Hemisphere :P
