      Before I mention anything else I need to say I will be going to Los Angeles tomorrow to appear on the G4TechTV show "Unscrewed" along with Joel (Caboose). If you're in the area and want tickets you can go here to request tickets. The episode airs on November 9th (try and pry yourself from Halo 2 for a few minutes to watch us on the television).

      Well, Anime Reactor was a blast. We got invited up there by Caitlin who is one of the event organizers. She seemed very busy there and so we didn't get to hang out too much but it was great to finally meet her in person. My favorite Caitlin moment was when she nearly bumped into a lady at the airport and the lady (very nicely) said "Watch where you are going." To which Caitlin replied "Shut up!" I also got to meet Unitdaisy, Peccaui, Dragonedge and Mrs. Dragonedge in person for the first time ever. I don't know about those guys but it was a lot of fun to hang out with them. It's weird to think I've probably known all those people for almost 3 years now (even before RvB) and just met them face to face for the first time. I also met people who hang out here at the site but can't remember their usernames (other than Phuzzy). Oh yeah, we got to eat pancakes at the "Golden Nugget" with Peccaui and Unitdaisy which was awesome.

      The convention went over well. We made a special video entitled "Sailor Goon" and I think it was well received. Our panel was well attended and we even got to judge a "Cosplay Idol" competition where people dressed up and performed skits and I got to be an asshole to them. I'm told I may have been a little too hard on the kids. One of the groups tried to bribe the judges with a bottle of liquor, and while everyone else gave them high scores for it, I gave them a very low score. Bribery does not win Gus over!

      Anyway, since Dragonedge and Mrs. Dragonedge wanted to see "Angry Gus" (my drunk alter-ego), I had to oblige. The night grew kind of hazy for a while. I know we were in the elevator for a bit and I talked some shit to some guy who said Family Guy was better than Futurama, and the next thing I knew I was wrestling some girls in a kiddie pool filled with applesauce. Yuck. When I took a shower that night I had to pay special attention to remove the applesauce from my ears (that was gross).

    • Sad Day

      gus Elite Staff

      Today is one of the top three saddest days of my life. I was going to eat lunch at Coco's Cafe near where I live and THEY WERE CLOSED! They shut down the location nearest where I live. They had the best pot stickers in the world but no more. I used to go there 3 or 4 times a week. Gus is sad today.

      For the record, the two other saddest days in my life were (in no particular order):
      1. Last episode of Quantum Leap
      2. Day the Dismemberment Plan broke up.

      I just had to call 911 for the first time in my life. Geoff and I were driving back to Austin after doing some RvB work down in Buda tonight and as we turned onto the street that we live on we saw a lot of smoke and dirt in the air. I turned to Geoff and said "What the fuck is up with all this dust?" Then I saw that immediately in front of us there were two cars that had driven off the road. I thought that was odd and looked some more and saw all the dust and smoke was from a car that had just flipped over and been crushed like an aluminum can. The accident must have just happened because people started pulling over to go see if anybody needed help so I called 911 to get an ambulance out there. As I placed the call a cop showed up and started to try and bring order to the scene. I am about 90% sure that whoever was in the overturned car had to be dead. That was a horrific looking wreck. If that person turns out to be dead, that will be the second traffic related fatality I've seen first hand this week (the first was on Wednesday in Buda). Man, that was unnerving.

      I just got an IM from our contact at the datacenter where files.redvsblue.com is hosted and the conversation went like this (I'm going to call him Joe):

      Joe: Your site is pushing ~700mb/s to the internet :)
      Gus: :-O
      Gus: holy fuck
      Joe: YEAH!
      Joe: tell me about it!
      Joe: we are all in disbelief
      Gus: jesus....i can't imagine that much data at once

      I'm afraid to ever make another journal entry again because I'm afraid I can never top that last entry I had. My current plan is to run into the bathroom while Geoff is taking a shit and take a picture of him on the toilet. Maybe that can top that last entry...then after that I might be fucked.

    • Pol Pot's Birthday

      13 years ago

      gus Elite Staff

      While we were in London for Resfest we got a chance to see a short film called "Pol Pot's Birthday". I was lucky enough to get a copy of it on a DVD that came with Res magazine, but I can't really find the movie online anywhere, so if you ever see that short playing anywhere go see it (it's only like 10 minutes long).

      --edit--
      I found an imdb link for the film.

      Well, surprisingly we didn't die on the way to London. We sat in the plane at the gate at O'Hare for an hour and a half while they fixed the air conditioning and "electrical problems". The flight was pretty smooth and now we're chilling in good old England. It's cold, and I think wolves are after me.

      Today I woke up with an epiphany, and I thought I'd share it with you. I realized how the Rooster Teeth Podcast can finally climb to number 1 podcast ever, of all time. You, Geoff, and Joel go on a manned shuttle to Mars, and host the podcast, IN SPAAACE. You and Geoff have already said you'd like to, and Joel would finally be able to start his own economic system on Mars. Here's the beauty of it: refuse to communicate with Earth in any way other than podcast. How's the United States President via satellite sound for the fourth seat? All Red vs Blue lines could be recorded there as well, and who's to say it can't have a ten year supply of liquor? NEW BRANDING: The Drunk Shuttle.

      You guys were talking about skydiving a lot on the latest podcast. Thought I'd share this - probably one of the heartbreaking videos on the net. It's a video recording of a guy who collides with someone else in mid-air, causing him to fall without a parachute (1st person perspective with voice). He survived, but was partially paralyzed. It took him 4 years before he he could watch the video and he then decided to post it.
      Heartbreaking, but worth a watch:

      Hey Gus, did you know you predicted the future? So one day I was listening to the old Rooster Teeth Podcast #17 and at 2:16 in the podcast, they start talking about the new DLC for Left 4 Dead and the new game coming out, Left 4 Dead 2! At 3:41,you and Geoff were thinking that Valve should make a DLC to bridge the gap between Left 4 Dead and Left 4 Dead 2, and at 3:49, Burnie made a joke that that DLC should take place on a bridge. Guess what! They just predicted the future! Eventually, Left 4 Dead 2 made a DLC that bridged the gap between Left 4 Dead and Left 4 dead 2 and there is more! The first and last part of that DLC, took place near and on a bridge! It is safe to say that Rooster Teeth just predicted Left 4 Dead 2's DLC! I just wanted to get that out there because i thought it was cool! Hope you read this!
