This week's episode of On The Spot will be delayed. Due to today's announcement from President Trump regarding the transgender community, we feel this isn't the right time to air it. While the show celebrates the incredible visual and humorous talent of drag performers, we wanted to be sensitive to today's news. We believe you'll enjoy the episode when it airs next week, but today is not the day for it. Thank you for understanding.

We are back for the summer WOOO!!!! Over the next three months we will be releasing an episode of the Fan Service every few weeks.
That's not all, we will also be releasing some of our convention panels in-between the studio filmed episodes.
But wait there is more! For the FIRST TIME EVER, new episodes of Fan Service will be available to EVERYONE on the Rooster Teeth site after a brief window of FIRST member exclusivity. Can't wait to talk to even more Anime fans!
We are filming the first of our summer episodes tonight with a very special guest, director and voice actor Clifford Chapin. We'll be talking about a show I've been digging lately, NEW GAME!
For anime club we will continue talking about My Hero Academia and be reviewing some of the Summer Season anime we have been watching.
Look for this episode to be released Saturday August 12th.

I've had two workouts since the test last week. The first was on Friday, and it was stretching and core. Turns out I didn't lose strength in my abs after all, at least not a noticeable amount - I must have been doing crunches differently during the test workout which led to a smaller number. I was able to get all the way through the ab workout (minus a couple exercises and stretches that I forgot about until afterwards) and at the END of that, did 25 crunches only stopping because I didn't want to overexert. So that's good.
Did my second one today, and it was chest and back. Turns out going calisthenics-only is really difficult when you don't have access to a pull-up bar. So I'm modifying the next couple months of my training: no equipment except dumbbells 25lbs or less, and a chest expander. I'm also going to do my best to keep all my workouts under 40 minutes (excepting warmup and stretching), so as not to overexert. I'm very disappointed with how far my chest strength has fallen, and I'm pretty sure my back strength is severely diminished as well. My shoulders seem not to have lost that much, oddly enough. My legs are toast though.
I took some more progress pictures on Friday before my workout too. The plan is to take another set in September, and then a final one in November when I've hopefully been back in the gym for a month or two, and then I'll chop them all together and put up some comparison pictures. It may be a while before I have leg progress to chart though, because my knees are not the greatest and squats are not the most comfortable thing for me. Time will tell.
My flexibility also slowly continues to improve. Hopefully I'll be roughly back where I was last November by this November. Now if only my left lower oblique would stop being sore, I'd really be in business.
What are you guys up to?

Ooops, I completely forgot to post yesterday!
Here's the last of my Anonymous Human Figure paintings for a while:
Today I met with my artist friend. We had planned to paint outside but the weather was very iffy so we adjourned to Dunkin and had some coffee drinks.
I keep cheap scenic calendars in my backpack of art supplies to use as emergency references so that's what we did.
Here's my rendition of a typical scenic calendar mountain with lake scene:

Edit: Fixed some stuff in the images that bugged me
Now that Shitfest 2017 is over I've been catching up with the OCC comic. Took a small break from it and did these. First two of a series featuring characters of another thing I will probably never do but I draw anyway
And then I've been meaning to do this for a very long time, so here is the meme thing where you draw the contents of your bag. Might have to see a bigger size to read some of it, though
Have anything weird or unique that you carry around?

Yeah that got your attention. Did you know this weekend is National Cheesecake Day? Did you know I'm kind of a master at making cheesecakes? Did you know my community had the opportunity to make me do a baking stream for them and share one of my recipes? DID YOU GUESS THESE ARE ALL RELATED QUESTIONS?
On Saturday starting at 1pm I'm doing a stream showing from start to finish how I make one of my favorite things, the fudge truffle cheesecake. If you want to do a sort of bake-along with me, the rest of the details and the ingredient list is chilling over here. While it's baking, we're going to finish building some LEGO and play with the pups, so pretty much it's going to be the best stream ever

Transgender people serving in the military...
While it is true that certain medical conditions are deemed too much of a risk for military needs, I've seen nothing to prove that being transgendered poses such a risk.
While it is true that transgendered people have medical expenses, there are other medical conditions with higher maintained costs that are still allowed in the military. Also, there are many in the military who are still responsible for their own maintained medical care for various conditions that are allowed in the military. There is no proof that being transgendered is more of a strain on the military than some other allowed medical conditions.
I see no reason to prevent transgendered people from serving if they so desire.

So I came on today to clean up a bunch of my silly old posts and I was instantly flooded with great memories from the good old days on this site so I felt obliged to write a new journal entry. It's strange coming back because I barely even recognize the site anymore and I barely know how to navigate it now. It's kinda funny because I used to pride myself in being able to help new people find their way around and become accustomed to the site but now I'm the one bumbling around clicking random buttons.
I figured I'd just let you know what's been going on in my life since my last post two years ago. Basically almost all of my time the past 2-3 years had just been spent on school since my curriculum got much harder in my last years of college and I didn't have the time to be on here 24/7 like I wanted to. I also played lacrosse which took up a lot of my time, and of course there's also mandatory video game sessions to keep me sane. Most of my good friends on the site had also left and I couldn't keep up with all the new faces so I just kinda left and focused on other things. I just recently graduated and I'm looking for a job now so I can start paying off my student loans and I've also started designing a video game while I wait. Everyone has to grow up sooner or later.
Anyways, I just wanted to write something short and to let you guys know I was thinking about you all today. Thanks again to all the amazing people I met on this site over the years and all the awesome times we had screwing around in the forums and various community events. You really are some incredible people and I'd love to catch up some time!

A good question. People at work know I play, and none of them do, and they have no interest in doing so. But they keep on hounding me as to why I enjoy playing (& running) D&D sessions.
First off, be quiet, it's my time and I can do what I want with it. I don't care it's nerdy, I never saw the problem being one except being called one.
Secondly, the long part. Let's look at a favourite art piece of mine and try to explain part of it.
This is a great piece by Shockbolt from DeviantArt. It exemplifies two great things I love about D&D
1) The Monsters: That green thing, for the un-initiated, is a favourite monster of mine. The gelatinous cube. Now I've not used one yet, but I remember when it's been used on me. It's basically a giant acidic jelly that just eats stuff. Complete nonsense, but terrifying when you think about it. And there are dozens of things like this, but to stop me copy/pasting the entire monster manual, I'll end it here. Another day, another journal.
2) The Challenge: Look at the halfling in the picture. (The short bloke in the middle) He's pointing towards the key, inside the cube. The question the adventurers are obviously having is "How the fuck do we get this key out of this thing without dying?"
When I'm a DM, I don't know how the adventure is going to go. I present a problem, and it's up for the adventurers to find a solution. I have no idea what they are going to attempt to get this key, but I'm looking forward to the stupid shit they're about to try.
And I guess that's why I enjoy it so much. The stupid stuff, the "we thought it was a good idea" stuff. The random shenanigans the plays will get up to, and it happens all the time when people roll play.
I'll be writing more on the subject of D&D, but feel free to ask questions, post topic suggestions or ask questions you always wondered below.
For now though, TTFN
