      Hello Barbara, I had a concern about something that dealt with my RoosterTeeth first membership. I was hoping you'd help me find who I need to talk to about that? (So sorry for bothering you!)

      Hey Barbara! I've been a huge fan of Always Open ever since the pilot episodes came out. Will there be any kind of Always Open at RTX Austin this year? This will be my first RTX and I am super excited

      Answered: Feb 24, 2017

      Almost certain we will do a live Always Open at RTX!  barbara

    • AxAl asked Barbara a question

      I am very sorry to bother you. I submitted a question via email to the always open team. Will they respond, no matter wether the question will be picked for the show or not?

      Answered: Feb 24, 2017

      Unfortunately we get quite a few emails, so we can't guarantee every email will be answered/picked for the show. But we really appreciate every question we get in, and it's always possible we may go back to look through old emails to pick segments for the show!

    • Always Open returns TOMORROW!

      2 months ago

      Barbara

      Hey everyone!


      I want to thank everyone SO MUCH for watching the first season of Always Open. It was very nerve-wracking to host a show for the first time, especially one that's unlike anything else we do at Rooster Teeth, and something I had no idea if people would like or not.


      The cast & crew involved in this show are some of the best people ever; they've dedicated so much time and effort into making it possible, and they kick ass at it.


      Thank you for being patient while we took a small break over the holidays. We wanted to take time to revamp things, evaluate how certain aspects of the show performed, and freshen segments up.

      Season 2 starts this week, and with the premiere, you'll start to see some changes:


      1. NEW TIME/DAY!

      Always Open will now be THURSDAYS at 11 a.m. CT for FIRST members, followed by public on YouTube 24 hours later (Fridays at 11 a.m. CT).


      2. NEW SEGMENTS!

      We're still keeping our current segments, but adding some new things here and there, including some fun games. We're always on the hunt for new, fun things to try on the show, so if you ever have ideas you think would work on the show, or a topic you'd like discussed, email [email protected]


      3. NEW SET(ish)

      We're going to be making slight adjustments/improvements to the set. These may happen in pieces over time, not all at once. Just giving you all a heads up about that now so you're not confused if you see small changes happening.


      4. MORE GUESTS!

      We love the opportunity to have fresh faces on the show, and we'll be continuing to do so this season. You can expect to meet new people from Rooster Teeth, as well as some outside guests we think you'll love.


      I'm very excited to be continuing Always Open, and that's all thanks to you guys and your support. You guys make us excited and motivated to keep doing what we do.


      Hugs and kisses and butt squeezes,

      B

      I came to Rooster Teeth on December 12, 2011. That makes today my 5-year anniversary officially at the company. Whoa. 


      It's impossible to sum up the last 5 years, but I'll try it in 5 words: exhilarating, overwhelming, terrifying, rewarding, happy. Rooster Teeth and its community have impacted my life more than anything ever has, and likely more than anything ever will. It's hard to imagine my life any other way. 


      So much has changed since I started watching Rooster Teeth content in 2004, and just like many long-time fans, it's hard for me not to get nostalgic over certain aspects and miss the way some things used to be. However, I've also realized that in order to grow and thrive, you need to keep adapting, and changing, as long as what's important to you doesn't change. For me, that's the feeling of being part to the Rooster Teeth family. Feeling like I belong. That's what made me fall in love with this community so many years ago, and what continues to hold true for me. 


      I feel so fortunate, and grateful for you all; for supporting me, for supporting Rooster Teeth, and allowing me to be here and interact with you. 


      I look forward to many, many, many more years.

      Hey I have really really enjoyed your voice acting for Yang. Yang is such a cool character and watching her story develop has been actually inspiring! She's a strong character too and someone we all can look up as well. Thank you. Please keep doing her amazing character and I am looking forward to the next volumes of RWBY. :D

      Hi Barb,

      I'm catching up on all of the Always Open episodes and I just wanted to say thank you for addressing 9/11 the way you did in pilot episode 0.3.

      I know humor can be a good coping mechanism, but that commercial in question was in no way a joke designed to help anyone cope.  Before that day, I didn't see the big deal about making jokes about tragedies like the Holocaust or rape jokes, but that's because I never had perspective on how survivors of those kind of tragedies feel.

      My dad worked around the corner from the WTC, he watched the second plane hit from 3 blocks away. I called him frantically when the buildings collapsed trying to make sure he was out of harms way. Phone lines and service were jammed for hours that day.  I didn't learn that he was ok until 7pm that night.  He had to walk across the Brooklyn bridge and hitch hike to get home to my distraught mother.

      I also have a friend of my family who was a firefighter who lost his life trying to save others on that day. He had an infant son who will never know his father except for the fact that he was a hero. I have another friend of the family who luckily took off that day, but lost his entire company, all of his coworkers gone in the blink of an eye. I had a daily commute through the subway terminal in the lower level of that complex for 2 years, if it happened one year earlier, I would have been going through there at the time of the attack. To people whose lives it touched directly, it'll never be something funny.

      Maybe 2 or 3 generations from now it might be acceptable to make joke in reference of 9/11 like people are able to do now about the Holocaust, but to the people who remember it first hand, it just brings up a feeling of numbness.

      Thank you for addressing that issue on your show, it meant a lot me and as I'm sure it did as well for the other members of RTNY.

      Mike

      Hi Barbara, I was just wondering if we could use the power of the Rooster Teeth Community to do something wonderful.


      Unfortunately my brother-in-law, who has suffered from debilitating physical and mental illnesses throughout his 19 year life, passed away peacefully last night at home surrounded by people that love him. However, due to his complex medical needs whilst alive and his deep love of food and drink (which I'm sure you can relate to), his family do not have the money to pay for a funeral. So, i was wondering if you could please share the below link to the just giving page so we can try and honour Thomas' legacy by giving him the funeral he deserves. Anything you can do to help is greatly appreciated.


      God bless,

      Ryan Foster.

      Hey Barb! Just wanted to say thank you for all the work you've done to make the rooster teeth community more female friendly. From giving a lady's perspective on the RT Podcast to hosting Always Open with primarily female guests to making sure that there are comfortable and more femininely shaped clothing in the Store (including your own bomb-ass line), it just really means a lot to see someone looking out for us! <3

      It's a drop shot, the shot goes into a short glass and is taken all in one. 

      -In the shot glass

      1/2 oz. Red Sourpuss

      1/2 oz. Root beer schnapps 

      -The bigger glass

      1 oz. bar lime (Margarita lime mix)

      Hey Barbara!

      I just had an idea for a Million Dollars But card. It would be a "thats a lot of money" card. There would only be 2 or 3 in the whole set, and you would play it at the begginging of the round. I have thought of two different options for the card:

      1. The user get to play two answers to double his chances of winning

      2. Whoever wins the round gets two points instead of one

      Hope you like the Idea!

      I ,The8Bit,call dibs on Yang's right armed ShotGauntlet. I have made this post to clearly state that I have called dibs on Yang's right shotgauntlet. It seems to me that Yang has cut off her career of being a huntress and will no longer need a bracelet full of shells. In this case I could use this weapon in better purposes instead of her. If she needs a hand then I am sure that the general can make that girl her very own arm. I have already notified her that I will be arriving next month to pick up the weapon from her. Fraid not good people for this weapon will be cared for in the upmost respect. I know that a weapon like this would cost an arm an a leg anywhere else. I would love to explain more but I must be packing for it will be a very long and interesting trip.

      Hey Barbara, there's two showings for Lazer Team near me in Pittsburgh on the 27th, but they're both sold out (I had to wait till pay day to buy my ticket). Is there anyway to get another ticket or something? Just wondering if you might have any idea on what to do here.

  • Questions answered by Barbara

    Any questions regarding FIRST membership can be emailed to [email protected] :) 

    Unfortunately we get quite a few emails, so we can't guarantee every email will be answered/picked for the show. But we really appreciate every question we get in, and it's always possible we may go back to look through old emails to pick segments for the show! 

    RT will sadly not be at Fan Expo this year :(

    It's pretty hard, but can be harder/easier depending on your situation. If you have a company that wants to hire you and sponsor your Work Visa / pay for an immigration lawyer to handle it, it's easier. If you don't have a job offer and are just trying to get to the states.. it's...hard. Real hard.

    We recognize the issues with our site - and we're working on them. We recently brought on more people for web development and I believe front-end design (if not soon). Believe me, it's understood it needs a lot of work, and a lot of it has begun. Many things to work on, but you will start seeing improvement as we go. Our goal is to make this feel like a home for everyone, both in watching content and being part of a community base. Changes be comin'!

    Still working on it! It's gone through a few different changes through development, but it's getting there. I'd rather take time to make it something good than rush it out. We'll hopefully have something started this year. :)

    You never know! I'm sure it's possible now that RTX is expanding to other countries.

    Yang's hair. Have you seen that shit? IT'S MAJESTIC AF.

    How long have you known Gavin?

    | Asked by: NickPidd 1 year ago

    Since the end of 2004. AKA: long.

    I'll answer this tomorrow.

    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'.

    You can't have an "all time best" thing when all of them are perfect and god-like.
