      What was your reaction when you read in the RWBY script about what happens to Yang in S3E11?

      Answered: Feb 10, 2016

      I knew it was coming this volume, so I was super excited to do the VA for the scene. Had to drink lots of water for screaminz'.

      Dear Monty

      1 week ago

      It's been 1 year since you were taken from us. There's not a day that goes by that I don't think about you, and not a day that goes by that I don't miss you.

      I wish so badly that you could see the impact you've had on the world, and what your creations have become. I wish you could have seen RWBY on Netflix, get picked up in Japan, become a game, and how it has inspired and touched millions. I wish you could see Volume 3, and how beautiful it is. I wish you could see how big the animation team has grown, and the magic they produce. I wish you could be in our Monday all-hands meetings, talking about how you remember when the company was just a handful of people. I wish you could have been with us for the premiere of Lazer Team. I wish I could have a 3 hour heart to heart with you in the kitchen at work over a cappuccino at 2 in the morning. I wish you could have seen the outpour of love and support from our community when you passed. I wish you could see the lives you continue to affect on a daily basis.

      I wish we could have seen what you would've done next.

      But most of all, I wish you were still here, making the world brighter and more magnificent every day.

      We've kept moving forward, but don't for a second think we're not taking you along with us.

      Miss you buddy.

      So, as some of you may know, I've been in the process of getting my green card so I can live as a permanent resident in the US (currently on a work visa). Part of the process of getting your green card is a medical exam, where they test all your stuff, make sure you're all vaccinated, and all that.

      I went for my exam today.

      Brought my vaccination records, and even though I got all the necessary shots as a kid, I still ended up having to get 3 different vaccines, a flu shot, and a blood test (from both arms, since they didn't get enough blood from one).

      My arms are THE OUCH and all bandaged and bandaid'd up. I should be cosplaying as some from Borderlands right now.

      How is your Tuesday going? Did you hear RWBY Grimm Eclipse came out for early access on steam? You should get it. Maybe you'll see me on the server tonight, trying to play with my dumb arms!

      Hi Barb

      I was hoping it would be possible to get a tweet about the Lazer Team screening at Tamworth, NSW Australia it's a small rural town and the best shot at reaching the rooster teeth fans that are not members of roo teeth would be to have rooster teeth itself put out the word. It would mean the world to me and all the other rooster teeth fans in this small area if we could pull this screening off as would not only be an opportunity to see Lazer Team on the big screen but an opportunity to meet other rooster teeth fans in this remote area. We are halfway there we just need some help.

      Thank you.

      Hey Barbara,

      I bought tickets to the Lazer Team showing in NYC on the 27th. My girlfriend received tickets to see Muse the same night so now I can't go. I want to try to make the most of the situation though. Would it be okay if I tried to give the tickets away to a Rooster teeth fan who volunteers with my old company, St Bernard Project? (D.B.A.; Friends of Rockaway and Sea Bright Rising)

      They do Hurricane Sandy recovery work in NYC and NJ respectively. They are also starting some work in Texas and South Carolina but I assume fans in that area probably can't make it to NYC.

      I just want to make sure I can actually do it and it wont effect the showing or anything. If that works let me know. I'm not sure who else I could ask.

      I just finished watching a few episodes of "How It's Made" and I would like to nominate you to be the narrator of a RT spoof of how something is made. This nomination is made on the grounds of your singular pun prowess and how many puns that show's narrators squeeze into each instructional sequence. I'm convinced you could make a much more enjoyable segment.
      Happy New Year and Have a great day!

      Hi Barbara :)

      Can I ask about the Vue screenings of Lazer Team in the UK? The link of Tugg just seems to link straight through to the Cinema's website but they don't seem to have sold many tickets and I'm confused as this is not the way the other cinemas on Tugg seemed to work (having to have over a certain number before being confirmed etc.) ... can you tell me what the deal is? Have Vue auto-confirmed all the screenings? (The one we're particularly interested in is Vue Omni Edinburgh, Scotland).

      Thank you for your time and any help you can give me and my friends :)

      I finally got both volumes 1 and 2 of RWBY on Black Friday and started listening to the cast commentary on both. First off, I love hearing cast commentaries on, well, everything and RWBY is no exception. Anyhow, my two questions, will we get to hear more wonderful (and groan worthy) puns from Yang over the next few seasons? My other question is how many times a day do you end up hearing marriage requests from us?

        Either way, it is going to be an awesome fight. (Can't help feel that this is another nod to Monty)

        If anybody has seen the sneak peek picture of the fight, looks like Yang is going to bust up another bar, more specifically Tifa's bar.
