    Re-listening to this podcast is inspiring, you don't have to be a filmmaker to take Robert's advice. He seems genuinely smart and very interesting to listen too.

    Did anyone else notice how many times Jon said the word "like" when talking about Battle Angel Alita? it was ridiculous.

    Also props to burnie for his Casper segue. That was great.

    A response to when Gavin was talking about the weather alert thing: There was an amber alert around here, like, last week? It happened right at the start of one of my classes. It's a small school, so a small auditorium (we have two, this is the smaller one that holds like 100 people) - well, it's a class of about 30 people. And everyone's phone went off at the same time. It was the loudest and scariest thing I think I've ever heard.

    Amazing how Rooster Teeth is now interviewing people that I've watched in film class. El Mariachi was one of my favorites because our professor showed us the behind the scenes after we saw it so we went in without knowing it was a 7 thousand dollar film. Absolutely mind blowing.

    Battle Angel Alita is my favorite manga of all time. Couldn't be more hyped to hear that Robert might be working on it too.

    Quite honestly, I'm sick and fucking tired of hearing about men being inconvenienced for safety of children. I would rather be inconvenienced than have no one care about children being sexually assaulted. And the fact is that sexual assault is done more by men than women. Since sexual assualt of children is going down, I'd say we're doing something right, wouldn't you?

      I understand that it's frustrating to feel like your an automatic suspect just because of your gender, but come on, I don't think some mistrust and taking precautions against a person you don't know is unreasonable (granted, this can sometimes go to far). I also get irritated every time Burnie makes the claim that it seems like it's mostly female teachers sleeping with students. No, it really isn't. Most of the offenders are male, and this abuse happens so often. Can you really blame people for being guarded?

      It wouldn't be nearly as large of a problem if not for the fact that sexual assault cases in which the perpetrators are female are on the rise. And for that matter women in generally when dealing with these type of cases get lighter sentencing and might not even get prosecuted at all. Furthermore there are very different stigmata attached to whether the victim was a male or a female. There are still many people that claim that a man can't be raped which causes an insurmountable amount of altercations left in secret. So while you can say that it's better for these precautions to be taken then not is pretty ridiculous. You're basically calling for times in which men are, for no other reason than being a man, are seen as some menacing entity instead of a person. I remind you that an unstable young boy who spends his entire childhood being told that men are the bad guys will grow up to be just that because thats all a grown man can be to them. So while you say we're doing something right isn't wrong the question is for how long is this okay.

      According to the CDC, a majority of sexual assault towards children, is done by women.

    By the time I get around to playing Halo 5 it will be like fucking February. I gotta finish Assassins Creed Syndicate before Fallout 4 comes out because that will consume my life for the near future. I even have a copy of Halo 5, not gonna even open it because I would rather play Syndicate until Fallout 4.

    I really didn't like the story in Halo 5. The story bits were great but the main overarching story was awful. Not going to spoil anything but it's one of the worst AI stories I've ever seen.

    I would like to say that I looked up the Futurama clip that Burnie mentioned, and I noticed that the three videos I watched (the one that Burnie mentioned, another one that was the same clip, and the clip where the guy says "All I know is that my gut says 'maybe'") all had the likes/dislikes completely even.
