      I Like Lego

      2 weeks ago

      I'm sure the majority of you guys saw it already, but I've started uploading videos to my personal YouTube account right here, and my first one went up a couple of days ago. It's me building a Lego jet in stop-motion style.

      Honestly, stop motion is a HUGE pain in the ass. I'm going to do a time-lapse of the next one to see if I can get away with doing about 90% less work as far as setting up shots/hiding/taking photos/adding to set/setting up shots/hiding/taking photos/adding to set.... etc.

      Let me know what you think!

      You can see it right here!

      #IDARB Rooster Teeth Team Help!

      4 months ago

      Aloha folks,

      During Let's Play Live, our friends behind the awesome game #IDARB let us know that they'd be willing to put us in the game in a future update! If you haven't seen their game, you should absolutely check it out. It's currently FREE for Xbox Live Gold members on the Xbox One.

      Anyway, I'm no artist, so I figured I would leave it up to you guys to create the Rooster Teeth team for #IDARB and have your creations enshrined in a video game. Now, all you have to do is go to the #IDARB website and check out their character creator, save your creation and save the image it produces (with the QR code). Upload it to our contest gallery here and we'll pick our favorites.

      You are welcome to make your best representation of the Achievement Hunter crew, the podcast guys, the team from Red vs. Blue... anything Rooster Teeth related. We'll pick our favorites to comprise the team!

      I'm excited to see what you guys come up with, now, get to creatin'!

      RIP Monty Oum

      5 months ago

      My first real "Monty' experience was when we both were working on the pilot episode of Immersion. I was there helping as a production assistant and Monty was one of the Yakuza that beat the shit out of Gus and Geoff as they were getting in their vehicle.

      As we were setting up a shot, a few of us could hear a faint noise of heavy metal. We looked over and Monty was sitting on a bucket, head on his hand, sunglasses on, ABSOLUTELY BLASTING heavy metal in his headphones. I waved at him to let him know that he should probably turn down his music as to not melt his brain. He didn't respond. I waved again. What I didn't realize was that this was my first glimpse of Monty's "powered down' mode. The dude was asleep.

      It was then that I knew that this guy was something different.

      At the first PAX East we showed the episode of Red vs. Blue that had the Warthog busting through the wall in Valhalla. Monty had been perfecting and crafting that moment because we knew it was going to be an important one. I sat in the audience and the reaction from the crowd drew goosebumps from me. He was introduced to a thunderous applause after the video was shown and his time as Rooster Teeth's resident badass had begun. It was a pretty damn cool experience and one of my favorites from my time working here.

      Monty was a special guy and his legacy is going to live on. I'm going to miss him.

      Let's Play Live Update!

      8 months ago

      Folks,

      I come with some news about Let's Play Live! Due to the amount of awesomeness we are packing in to the show, we wanted to give ourselves a little more breathing room before we kick off this brand new event, due to that, we're moving from December into February.

      I am incredibly sorry for the delay, but I promise you, that extra couple of months is going to show on stage. This is also the reason why tickets hadn't hit sale yet, but as soon as we sign the contract for our new dates, we'll get those tickets up!

      Again, Let's Play Live is shaping up to be something special and you are going to want to be there at the ACL Live theater in Austin when our crew takes the stage. See you in February!

      Let's Play Live!

      8 months ago

      Aloha folks!

      Let's talk about something that I've been working on for a few months now, Let's Play Live!

      Let's Play Live spun from an idea that began at RTX this past year. While on stage with the rest of the AH crew, I looked out into a crowd of 4,000 people watching and thought, "Who else gets to experience this?' The only answer I could come up with was "Rockstars." And what do Rockstars get to do that we don't? They tour.

      After a pitch to Geoff and then Matt, the idea of an Achievement Hunter tour was born, but to make sure this is a feasible project, we want to run a test show in Austin first, therefore, we have Let's Play Live!

      Let's Play Live is going to be a one-of-a-kind show performed in front of a live audience at the ACL Live theater here in Austin on December 17th. You'll see us playing your favorite hits from the Let's Play channel live including Minecraft and Grand Theft Auto. (There will be more, but we have to keep you in somewhat of a suspense.)

      To open the show we will have a performance by chip tune artist IAYD. You'll want to come early to check him out, he'll get your blood pumping.

      Tickets will be on sale very very soon, we're just ironing out the final details with our ticket provider and as soon as we can, we'll put them up for sale. There will be three different kinds of tickets, a standard floor seat, a balcony seat and a VIP experience that will include a seat and a chance to hang out with the Rooster Teeth crew after the show.

      We most likely will not be streaming this event due to the fact we're going to be using licensed material (music) and also due to the fact that we are treating this more like a concert or a stage show than a traditional streaming event. We live in an age of "I can stream anything I want for free from my house' but we want to get away from that and provide an exclusive experience for those who can join us. This is going to be an incredible show with tons of surprises in store for those who make it in.

      Again, if this goes well, expect a traveling show that could end up in your hometown! We're excited to try something completely new and never before been done. I hope you can make it and tickets will be on sale soon! See you on December 17th.

      So 343 isn't doing split-screen for halo 5. I think this is ridiculous since it has been in every halo game up to now and so many people love halo for that fact. People love playing with their friends on the same screen and it is one of the few split-screen games left. I found a petition online to save it. Would be awesome if maybe you could mention it during AHWU or something!

      Supreme Court Opinion Makes Prosecution of Internet Trolls More Difficult

      *Disclaimer – I am not licensed to practice law. The following is a reflection of my reading of a Supreme Court opinion, and should not be relied on by anyone. I am not advertising my services, seeking compensation, or looking for notoriety: I am offering an explanation of the significant legal principles as I seem them for informative purposes.*

      Today the Supreme Court ruled in Elonis v. United States that a law often used to prosecute internet users who make threatening comments over the Internet could not be used unless the perpetrator knew the language to be threatening. Prior to this ruling, most courts held that an internet threat is illegal if a reasonable person (e.g. the person being threatened, other site-users) would feel threatened. The court today, however, found this rule was not an accurate interpretation of the statute, and required that any person convicted of making internet threats must be “blameworthy in mind before he can be found guilty.†While this ruling is a win for internet users who say the threats they make over the internet are intended for therapeutic or cathartic reasons, I am concerned that Internet threats are often made in passing while read quite seriously, making prosecution difficult under any other interpretation. This ruling requires authorities to demonstrate that a threat was made to be taken seriously, or at least made with the awareness that it might be taken seriously—a more difficult standard to prove unless the defendant admits what he or she was thinking when the threat was made.

      The facts of the case are that Anthony Elonis was arrested for 5 counts of violating 18 USC §875(c) which makes it a crime to transmit “any communication containing any threat to injure the person of another.†The statute was enacted in 1939 to apply to telecommunications that existed at the time, but is still used for federal prosecutions regarding threats made over the internet. Elonis made threats towards his coworkers, resulting in his termination from the amusement park where he worked. He also made threats against his wife, saying “Fold up your [Restraining Order] and put it in your pocket/ Is it thick enough to stop a bullet?†and providing details to the public on his Facebook page detailing what he believed to be the most effective way to fire mortar rounds at his wife’s home and not get caught. He made threats against Police; as well as an FBI agent that visited his house about the threats, posting to his Facebook after the incident “So the next time you knock, you best be serving a warrant/ And bring yo’ SWAT and an explosives expert while you’re at it/ Cause little did y’all know, I was strapped wit’ a bomb/Why do you think it took me so long to get dressed with no shoes on?/ I was jus’ waitin’ for y’all to handcuff me and pat me down/ Touch the detonator in my pocket and we’re all goin’.…†Finally, Elonis commented on another Facebook user’s post, “That’s it, I’ve had about enough/ I’m checking out and making a name for myself/ Enough elementary schools in a ten mile radius to initiate the most heinous school shooting ever imagined/ And hell hath no fury like a crazy man in a Kindergarten class/ The only question is… which one?â€

      At trial, the jury was instructed that Elonis was guilty of breaking the law if a reasonable person would have understood that the posts he was making were real threats, which are not protected by the First Amendment to the Constitution. Elonis argued that the word “threat†indicates that he must purposefully or knowingly make the threat to cause someone to feel threatened; a fact which was not determined at trial and which Elonis argues he did not intend. The government argued that Elonis’s purpose in making the argument did not matter because the statute does not require “an intent to threaten†only that the communication includes a threat. The trial judge agreed with the government’s argument, thus instructing the jury that Elonis was guilty if a reasonable person would have understood his words as threats. The Supreme Court overruled this jury instruction, sending the case back to a lower court to determine if Elonis was guilty based on some other interpretation of the statute.

      The lower court now must consider whether to adopt Elonis’s interpretation of the statute and require that internet threats be made with the purpose or knowledge of being threats in order to be illegal. If this interpretation is adopted, Elonis is less likely to be convicted because the jury is more likely to take him at his word that he did not intend—and did not know—that anyone would take his posts seriously. The Court could also choose a middle ground between Elonis’s and the Government’s argument by applying the standard of recklessness. Elonis recklessly threatened his victims if: 1) He had a substantial awareness that his words might be taken as threats; and, 2) A reasonable person would have understood that Elonis’s words were threats. This interpretation would likely result in a conviction because the jury would be allowed to infer that while it may not have been Elonis’s purpose to threaten, and while he may not have been certain that his words would be taken as threats, he must have at least been aware that his victims might interpret his words as threats. While the recklessness standard is likely to result in a conviction, the recklessness standard is more likely than the purposeful or knowing standard to be found a misinterpretation of the statute (again) or an unconstitutional burden on Elonis’s right to free speech. The Supreme Court has not offered a definitive ruling, only saying that the method used in this case of interpreting a threat through the eyes of the threatened (the same way most lower courts had interpreted the law) is incorrect and must be retried.

      Obviously, the legality of Internet threats is an important issue to anyone interested in safe, well-meaning, and healthy Internet ecosystems. This case highlights the difficulties in prosecu

      Jack,
      You may not read this but there is a girl in Rhode Island that is a huge fan of all things RT. Last year she was diagnosed with chronic Lyme Disease and has been unable to do the things a normal girl should be able to do. Tomorrow, Wednesday May 13, is her 16th birthday. She will not be able to celebrate it as she should due to her disease. Furthermore, tomorrow she will begin using IV bags that will make her feel like she has the flu. I have talked very briefly with her and she asked me to contact you to thank you (for what exact purpose I do not know), and said to ask for a temporary follow on Twitter @Lindsey_Clark11 or a friend request on this site. Her RT username is lindsey_11. What I am trying to do with this message is make her tomorrows featured user, but I don't know if I'm too late to make that deadline. I encourage you to please read the rest of her story as she said it on her Tumblr loserwithlyme.tumblr.com/
