I knew you when--
SO. Today's my 10 year RT birthday. A lot has changed about this place in the last decade, and us too, so I'm going to spare you the bullshit that we like to put everywhere else about how it "ISN'T THE SAME" and instead I'm going to list some of my favorite memories about this site and you fucking idiots. Please note: This is not a comprehensive list. That would be too many things. Nobody gives a shit about that many things.
-Being the nerdo 16 year old making fan vids in Windows MovieMaker for Staff Awards.
-Getting forcibly ejected from the Music BAR even though I never wanted to be in there in the first place.
-How mad Geoff was when I got my Rooster Teeth tattoo. "Casey, I'm going to look like a melted crayon when I get older, I don't have a fucking Rooster Teeth tattoo. We could go out of business tomorrow." (Spoilers: they didn't.)
-That one RvBTO where we started drinking at noon, and Jason & Joel disappeared around 7. (Jason: I dunno dude, the last thing I remembered was talking to you, and then I was in my hotel room eating a sandwich.)
-Getting an IM from Geoff every Monday night asking how the episode was.
-Staying up until 4 in the morning making Achievement Hunter videos in the wild west days.
-Vicky & Sox letting me crash at their place before my train home to Buffalo. This also included watching Soxy play Fallout for like 6 hours. It is the only interaction I have ever had with this game. I am pretty sure two hours of this were spent fighting a giant ant?
-Any time I played Left 4 Dead ever.
-Gav running away from me and screaming like a girl in the early Grifball days.
-Accidentally calling Burnie from the Apple Store instead of my dad. Still asking him if he knew the PIN to my parents' Verizon account.
-Barbara and I going shopping before the CPC dinner, and then all of a sudden I was going too.
-Getting hella uncomfortable when I was talking to Finch on AIM and he told me he was at work. Even that felt illegal.
-Speaking of illegal... that fucking photoshop for my 18th birthday.
-Drinking turns up Jenga's suave 230%.
-Drinking turns up Tom's "buy your own fucking drink" 480%.
-Everything that happened at RTX that one time I went.
-Telling everyone on Tinder at RTX that Fall Out Boy would be touring that summer with The Wizard Khalifa. And he is music. And they are playing in Buffalo.
-Any and all makeup talks with Amanda.
This list is getting comprehensive and I'm getting sappy, so I'm done now. This place has done a lot for me and it gave me all of you assholes who I cherish and will love forever.
So fuck you. Whatever.
