Red vs Blue Season 9!

 

ZOMG!!! It’s really happening! Like really for real! The guys at Rooster Teeth confirmed yesterday at their PAX panel that the 9th season of Red vs Blue is officially going to happen. There were a lot of indications, like the RvB PSAs, that season 9 was coming, but I never found anything from Rooster Teeth to confirm it. I was especially worried by how season 8 ended: it was a really nice and emotional finish that could have ended the whole series, as well. I would have been mad if this were the case, because, well, I don’t want to spoil anything, but just trust me, you don’t want it to end that way.

 

With this new season confirmation, Rooster Teeth showed the trailer exclusively during their panel. It was an unfinished product that they want to continue working on before they officially release it to the public on April 1st, Rooster Teeth’s anniversary (this better not be an April Fools joke or I will murder someone). Of course, someone taped the trailer with her(?) video camera (there’s one in every crowd), so you can catch the really low quality and shaky video of the season 9 trailer here (I love how you can hear her crying after they announce it). Rooster Teeth probably won’t like their work in progress on YouTube, so better watch it fast before it’s removed! According to the trailer, the new season starts this summer! Best summer vacation ever!

 

What is the deal with these shaky cameras, anyway? How hard is it to hold a light weight object in the air for 5 minutes? Some people hold it like they’ve just drank ten 2-liter bottles of Mountain Dew after inhaling a box of caffeine pills! The earthquakes are in Japan, guys, come on!

Just What Do They Do All Day?!

No, this post is not about Congress…

 

I recently recalled a conversation I had with my friend Diandra a while ago about non-nerds. She was sleeping over at my house and we had just spent numerous hours on my couch watching anime. I don’t remember who brought it up first, but we began to wonder what normal people do at sleepovers (this is a completely innocent conversation, so I don’t want to see any dirty comments about what you wish you could do with your friends at “sleepovers”). I honestly cannot remember the last time I went to a sleepover and didn’t do something geeky. We  have ventured a little from anime and gravitated toward video games—always doing something nerd-related. After we finally decide to go to bed, we stay up even later talking about plans for future gaming or our opinions on the latest Rooster Teeth video.

 

Non-nerds probably make up for the lack of something interesting to discuss by going to the theater or bowling. But when they’re at home, and they’ve already watched their gag-inducing chick-flick or repetitive football game, just what do they do for the rest of the night? Talk about whose boyfriend said what for hours and hours? That must be awful! Just how much is there to say, anyway?! There’s got to be more they do with their time! Or have I put too much faith in the human race?

 

Maybe this is why I have trouble talking to people. I don’t know how to start a conversation without, “So did you hear about that new Dead Island trailer?”

Illustrator Art

I made some stuff in Adobe Illustrator, so I thought I’d put it up.

 

I know this is already on my Facebook, but I thought I’d post it anyway because it’s relevant. I made this for the Illustrator project in my CS5 introductory class last semester. This is Tali from Mass Effect, and she has 98 sub-layers.

The most recent is this picture of a gnu (as a tribute to my username). I made it in my Illustrator class for a Charley Harper project. We had to copy his style of using basic shapes to make animals. Here are some examples of his art: cardinal, dog, animals. After working on this project, I’ve become a big fan of his work.

 

And this is an image I made a couple weeks ago and entered it into Rooster Teeth’s art contest. It had to be something that had to do with the 8th season of Red vs Blue, so I made this epicness, composed of 181 sub-layers. I don’t think I’ll win, because I’ve seen the other contest entries, and they just blow me away. It was still good practice, though, and a lot of fun.

 

Sarge’s Big Adventure

I found an old toy warthog (mentioned in an earlier post) and decided that I would take pictures of it so I could brag about it to all my friends. And then I got a little carried away, and well, you can see for yourself below.

The comic is based off Red vs Blue, but if you’re one of the two people who hasn’t heard of the show, you will most likely enjoy the comic anyway. Sarge will probably sound really cheesy, though, but that’s kind of part of his character. Anyway, it took a long time to make, but it was fun and definitely worth it.

The end! Hoped you enjoyed it.

So I was listening to Rooster Teeth’s podcast yesterday (because my addiction to Rooster Teeth is so bad that I literally sit around listening to a group of people I’ve never met talk about what they’re going to eat for lunch), and I heard one of them mention that Cornell is developing a 3-D printer that prints food.

 

Yes, you read correctly: a food printer. It takes a homogeneous mixture (like soft chocolate) and spits it out of a moving funnel, creating (supposedly) edible foods like cookies, cakes, or even a ‘designer dome’ made from liquefied turkey meat. I have no idea what a designer dome is, but it’s made from turkey meet, which sounds pretty disgusting if you picture it coming out like frosting from a funnel.

 

People are saying “Oh! the possibilities are endless! We could print out any kind of food we want!” which I doubt is very accurate. Some things, when liquefied, just don’t go back to their normal state. But hey, what do I know? How could they possibly have any trouble printing, say, an ear of corn? With desserts, sure, maybe the possibilities really are endless, but fruits and vegetables might be a different story.

 

But what I want to know about this whole food printing thing is, when is the food fax machine coming out? The 3-D food printer uses blueprints of the food to create it, so why not send another printer the blueprints of what you want made? It would be awesome! “Oh crap, I forgot to make dinner. That’s okay! I’ll just email my 3-D food printer, and it’ll make dinner for me!”

 

Or how about all those times when you’re texting someone “im makking c00kiez!!!1″ (because we all text like that), and they go “i want sum!” even though they’re in the next state over, and you’re like “..how do I respond to that? ‘No you can’t have some’? Well now I’m a jerk.” With the 3-D food fax machine, you could say, “Sure! One liquefied cookie coming right up!” and waste all their food ink. Just be sure they don’t have it loaded with turkey meat, because that’s just gross.

 

Anyway, if you want to find out more about the food printer, here’s an article with some videos and words and stuff: http://www.switched.com/2011/01/24/3-d-printed-food-is-here/
