    • Day 2075: Getting to an end

      2 weeks ago

      topham DHYB

      Today will be the last day I post on the old Roosterteeth community site. Obviously, I have other places I post, the new community site and my own website, but with the announcement that in less than a month the site will be gone with nothing really carrying over, there’s no point continuing the effort posting on the old community site too, especially with the lack of users, and interaction that I can see there right now. 


      I started out writing over there daily over 5 and a half years ago and it’s been a shame that it’s just a shadow of its former self. I think that’s due to a multitude of reasons, none of which I’m really concerned about sharing, but the majority of it is the focus to more hot take immediate response sites such as twitter to share thoughts. I certainly see more activity from anyone I know there, but there’s significantly less reason to foster a conversation. 


      It more so feeds into my lack of interest in social media, and particularly of facebook, where I never login because in my mind it’s just people complaining about stuff and reposting things and not creating new things. I saw something the other day, this might have been a few weeks ago, saying that you should follow artists and creators, and stop fuelling the ‘influencer’ types. There is a clear distinction, and I’ve never really been one to follow people who typically identify as influencers, though that seems to be a rising thing over the past few years, and that saddens me. Where is the artistry and creation and the credit for original works? 


      I think that the idea that has been underlying for me was that I never wanted to learn other peoples music, I should be able to forge my own identity without learning the songs of others. I know that to learn things you have to put your own influence and style on them, which is why music is fascinating, but I rarely see visual artists copying works, and that’s strange, but I think that’s where I got into my head. 


      I see the value in learning from others now, but at the same time, I think there might be too much weight put on the wrong things, which I think the point I mentioned about following artists and creators becomes more important. Sure, there’s definitely more to think about when trying to figure out where you fit in in the world, but forging your own path and being true to your own identity can be daunting. Live, be yourself, follow what you enjoy, but consume honest media, and support those who need it, not those who want and crave the attention. 


      I lost track of where I was going, instead of chilling out and thinking about the old site, I got caught up in another tangent. I’ll miss the old site, but for its old memories, nothing memorable has happened recently, which is sad. All that’s really left to say is, there’s a new site coming, hopefully, it’ll have new life injected into it, but I’m not sold on the situation of the social media landscape for it to be a thriving place for a community to re-establish itself. I expect to be communicating to the void for much longer, with much more reliable, down to earth numbers. 


      As I’ve always said though, I write for me, and for me alone. I need to channel my thoughts somewhere, and I’ll continue to do that, they’ll carry on being for me, but if you want to read through my adventure through life, feel free to join me. 


      Have an excellent day! You’re all my favourites!

    • Day 2074: Ideas

      Rachael and I went to place called 7th Street Salvage today and it was a place where they salvage old stuff from houses, and then reuse or re-purpose them.


      I liked it, and it gave me ideas about what kind of things can be done in a house. There was a bunch of stuff around from what looked like old train stations, and that was fun, and it turned out it was right next to some old tracks.


      There is something I’ve been playing that I’m sure is a chord progression for somewhere else, but I can’t figure it out, but I like how it sounds.


      Rachael and I started watching the new episodes of The Great British Bake Off yesterday, and over the last few days we’ve also started watching Fairytale and we’re enjoying both. I really like the story and introduction to Fairytale, and can’t wait to watch more, but I don’t want to full on binge and get burnt out, especially as there’s other things to do at the moment.


      Have an excellent day! You’re all my favourites!

      The new Path of Exile league began today, and it’s been going alright so far, no real issues. It’s been a good start, we made it to act 3, and I’m feeling nearly ready to hit the labyrinth.


      We went downtown for First Friday today, and had some good food, and walked around a few places.


      I’ve also been playing a bit of guitar, I want to learn more stuff, and now that I have a capo, I really need to start using it. A few of the songs I was planning to learn needed it, so now I’m prepared I can start on those.


      This weekend should just be chilling out, I want to go to the gym, and there’s a market somewhere downtown tomorrow, so might head down there to check it out.


      Should be a fairly relaxed few days ahead. Have an excellent weekend! You’re all my favourites!

      There was an announcement from Rooster Teeth about the support for the old site ending, and the transition to the new community site. I needed to extract all of my journals up to number 900, and was going to go through it all, but luckily Radius has create a tool to extract everything, which I have done.


      It turns out that I’ve done about 2313 journals to yesterday, based on the fact that I had 93 full documents of 25 posts, and a 94th with 13 journals in it.


      Tomorrow the new league launches in Path of Exile, and I’m excited, I’ve been doing a bit of planning out of stuff. I am looking forward to starting up from fresh again, and I have some strategies to have a good time.


      Today though, I put out a podcast that I recorded alone, talking a little bit about wrestling, and video games, which you can check out here!


      We also went to trivia today, and got a perfect score in the first round, and won the other two rounds, and got the answer right for the final question too, and won the whole night, it was a good trivia day.


      That’s about it for today! Have an excellent day! You’re all my favourites!

    • Day 2071: Wrestling Wednesday!

      2 weeks ago

      topham DHYB

      The weekend was quite crazy! There were so many good matches, and I want to highlight just a few.


      At Royal Quest, I had big expectation for Ishii vs Kenta, but unfortunately they carried on after a dangerous fall that Kenta took, and it really detracted from the match. Okada vs Suzuki was okay. All in all, Royal Quest, in a surprised to me was the weakest show of the weekend. New Japan usually puts on the best, and the show wasn’t bad, but the others were exceptional.


      At NXT UK Takeover Cardiff, Cesaro vs Ilja Dragunov was excellent, I really really enjoyed it. I was hoping for something that good from Cesaro, and I hope it reinvigorates him, it was so good.


      The 3 way tag team match was amazing, it was well paced, and really enjoyed how the whole match was structured and built.


      The crowd throughout the show was amazing, but they really went wild for Walter vs Tyler Bate. The match went around 45 minutes, and was a delight. I think it’s worth checking out, it was maybe the best WWE match in years. Maybe some of the NXT matches recently have been as good, but that match was incredible.


      Then, All Out was on. Matches worth checking out are Cody vs Shawn Spears, I wasn’t expecting much on that one going in, but it was very well done, very interesting story progression too. I really liked it. Then, I think Pac vs Kenny Omega was also great, there was a bit that didn’t work, I think it was Pac going for a poison-rana? The rest of it was crazy good and very athletic.


      My favourite match of All Out was the Ladder match between Lucha Bros and The Young Bucks. It really showcased a lot of typical wrestling concepts, and the removal of Pentagons mask was well timed, and reminded us that the Bucks in this feud really are the heels, something that so far has been overlooked.


      Have an excellent day! You’re all my favourites!

    • Day 2070: 2019 Progress Report, August Edition

      2 weeks ago

      topham DHYB

      August was mediocre. So much so I kind of put off doing this, and hence it is out now that September has got underway.


      I had 6 goals, and things are making progress. I started going to the gym, so I have been cycling a little less, but I’m at about 800km of the 2,000km goal, and I’ve started running so I’ve made progress there too.


      I’ve also been reading a bunch too, and that’s fun! I started a book called From Chaos to Creativity, and so I’m learning some things, and I’m nearly done with Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat.


      I haven’t really made much other progress. The job is dependent on paperwork going through, so I’m just waiting. I also haven’t done any things in learning stuff about Nobel Laureates.


      I have however been recording a bunch of music, however, over the weekend I didn’t get a bunch recorded, but I’ve got a load written, so it’s going to be recorded at some point soon.


      I have been writing a bit, it’s been going okay, but it’s not high high priority. There’s lots to do.

      Simple catch up was simple. Woo!


      Have an excellent day! You’re all my favourites!

    • Day 2069: Music Monday!

      2 weeks ago

      topham DHYB

      The new Tool album came out on Friday, and I like it.


      I don’t know what else to say than that to be honest. It’s a new Tool album, I thought I’d like it, it’s been a long time coming, and it picks up pretty much where the last one left off. It’s well constructed, flows well, very interesting melodies, and is a great thing to put on a listen to. I don’t know how each of the tracks will hold up on their own, separated from the whole experience, but I’m sure I’ll find out soon.


      I tried my best over the weekend to record a bunch of music. I got no where near the amount I wanted to get recorded done, but that’s alright, there’s always more time. I also did a bunch of other stuff in it’s place, and now feel better about spending time playing guitar.


      The song ideas are all still together, but I think I’m going to try and put them together one by one, as I was jumping around just trying to get as much recorded as possible, and it didn’t go particularly well.


      This week I plan to get a little more done, but I’m happy with where some of the music is. I got a new microphone and have been testing it out, and I really like how it sounds. I’m probably going to try and get some more stuff recorded that I can test out to get an idea of how to build a sound more.


      That’s about it for today, I’ve just been listening to some music, but all was good, and I found a bit more inspiration. My main guitar is tuned down to something like drop G and it’s mental, maybe I’ll come out with some Doom style stuff with it, just got to remember to play slower.


      Have an excellent day! You’re all my favourites!

    • Day 2068: Cleanasaurus Rex

      3 weeks ago

      topham DHYB

      Today, while my mission for the weekend was to record music, I spent cleaning, for a good 6 hours at least. I really wanted to get some surfaces clear in the kitchen, so I decided to go fully through it, take everything off the sides, wash them down, put things away in places where there was space, and make it a bit more clutter free. I also cleared the table of all the paperwork, and threw out all the boxes that were left over from Fridays delivery.


      I knew that I also needed to straighten up the front room, so I took care of that too, and got that all in order. I sorted out all of my pedals, and kind of reigned in the amp set up situation for the time being, as there’s still more to do soon, and I recorded a few jam things yesterday that I might upload as an example of creating space and ensuring clarity while using multiple amps. I like, how they sound, but I don’t really like how I recorded them.


      Anyway, I’m feeling content with how I left the kitchen, and I want to do more, I want to clear out the little entrance room where the washing machine and dryer are, and then tackle the room where the extra things go. I know the bathroom is relatively clean, that’s the easiest room to keep on top of. Then the bedroom is relatively in order, but I also have a limited amount of stuff around the place in there.


      Tomorrow, the only thing I want to do before Rachael returns is listen to the entirety of the new Tool album.


      Have an excellent day! You’re all my favourites!

    • Day 2067: Music, Cycling and Wrestling. And Baking.

      3 weeks ago

      topham DHYB

      It’s been a rather odd day. I got up and went cycling. I didn’t eat breakfast before I went, I can’t tell if that was a mistake or not. I did okay, finished the 26km in 1 hour and 2 minutes.


      I spent a little time working on music. Then a friend came over, and we played guitar for about 3 hours. It was awesome. I got some ideas, and I created some massive sounds. I need to get more recorded. I did set myself a massive goal for the few days surrounding now, but I knew I just wanted to get a few tracks and ideas recorded.


      I know I want to do a bunch of cleaning tomorrow, and there might be a raid on the cards, but I know that I want to get a lot done, and there’s an endless list of stuff to do.


      I’m currently watching All Out, and it’s been awesome so far, and while watching it I’ve been eating a rather large Skillet Cookie. It was delicious, and it was definitely too much.


      I’m having an alright time. Hope you’re all having a wonderful Labor Day Weekend. You’re all my favourites!


      Peace -x-

    • Day 2066: Little Music Stuff

      3 weeks ago

      topham DHYB

      It’s not even music monday, but there’s been a lot going on. I’m going to gloss over a lot, but things are alright.


      The new Tool album came out today, and I’ve enjoyed what I’ve heard. I need to listen to it more. And I will. I’ll listen to it so many times.


      There’s a new Andertons Jam Tracks album out to play over, and that was cool. I played over most of the tracks today.


      I got a bunch of cables for my amp set up, and I’m still working on it, but it’s creating some big sounds, and it’s all exciting. I’m looking forward to nailing it down a bit more.


      I completed 4 challenges in Path of Exile today, taking me to 24 challenges complete, and earning a new skill effect. It looks cool, it’s a bunch of purple crystals surrounding the character when the aura is up.


      I started two of the songs, so far, and have so much more to do! Woo!


      There’s been a lot going on, so much so I don’t want to write too much.


      Have an excellent day! You’re all my favourites!

      Okay. Random question. You're one of my British-type friends. Do you guys spell "mold" with a "u?" Like, "mould?" I can't tell if that's a typo I came across or a legit culture difference thing.

        Ah cool! Where abouts in the UK are you?

        Have a look in the forums for the UK fans threads, I can't remember the exact names, I think one of them is 'Who's from the UK?' and there's 'English RT Fans Unite' as well, though the English fans thread has loads of in jokes and can be quite offensive. This weekend RvB Scotland are doing their thing and streaming a bunch of activities, and they've got a game day in Glasgow, while there is a RT: UK meet up in London. Next weekend is London MCM where there will be a bunch of fans going, and a whole load of shenanigans going on.

        The community is pretty wonderful, I can't remember all the people right now who I should point you in the direction of, there are some people on the community hunter channel, Hightower, iSayWhat and The_Hybrid that are all busy on there, making videos and are a right laugh. Then there's Boomer who runs RT: UK which is on in September this year, and that'll be a riot, and there's a summer meet up too! Loads of things going on around the place too.

        Anyway, there's more than I can cover in the short time I have on lunch, but if you have any questions let me know, and for anything else, just jump in and have fun =)

        Dude, Adam Lambert killed it. Great freaking rock show with some great tributes to Freddie thrown in along the way. They were in Dallas the week after last year's RTX. Their the reason I only spent 4 days in Austin instead of 8. I wasn't going to miss Queen when they were so close to my hometown (I live 2 hours drive from Dallas, 4 hours from Austin) in what may very well be their final tour. I took some of my spending money from my RTX fund and bought a ticket. I just had to.

        Yeah man, it's one of those things. I can say in the moment that it's probably Diablo Swing Orchestra, but I could easily have written Marmozets, Pvris, Karnivool, Dead Letter Circus, Agalloch, Gorguts or Soilwork among many others. How were Queen? My parents saw them a few weeks ago with Adam Lambert and said it was an incredible show.

        for years and years its been Queen. I did get to see them in Dallas, TX last year so I'm happy about that. As far as the more Metal side of things, I don't really have a specific favorite. Just whichever one I'm in the mood for. Like you, I have some appreciation for most types of music.

        Hey man! I'm actually not going this year, it's out of my budget with the trip to RTX coming up, but my favourite band right now is probably Diablo Swing Orchestra. How about yours?

      So I got mail from the UK today and TJ's first question was "Is it from Topham?" smiley0.gif

        Yeah. He just assumes UK = Topham at this point. Haha.

      Hi smiley1.gif
      Thank you for putting up with me and my stupidity! Also, thank you for laughing at me and pointing out my stupidity smiley8.gif
      No but seriously, thanks for being a friend and offering to be my travel buddy because I probably wouldn't be going to RTX if you hadn't! Also, thanks for letting me be a guest on your chats, even if I am a shitty guest because I don't do my research and try to kill you with my cat smiley1.gif

      Most of all; thanks for being you smiley12.gif

      No, but seriously. You're an awesome dude... an inspiration even. I watch every Topham Chat. You and I might be the lonely few who are still playing Destiny! and I thought you might appreciate that... Happy Valentine's Day!

        There should be in a comma in there that makes it seem like I'm looking forward to both. Maybe I'll never return to the thread due to that error.

      Hey dude, hope you're having a Top day. It's great reading your journals each day, you always seem really enthusiastic about everything you do and I hope we can meet one day at an RTUK event and have banter over a pint.

      Have an awesome evening, and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

      David,
      I am forever grateful to you for helping a brother out and I hope what I was able to do in return was at least sufficient. You are a genuinely good dude, and that vibe is hard to get online a lot of times. I do drop in your RT conversation videos from time to time and I think you are doing a great thing with those! Much respect, brotha!

      Thanks for always being a cornerstone of this community, it's hard to think of the RT site without thinking of you and your daily posts and videos. You never cease to make me smile when we do get to play gaimez and hang out and I feel privileged to have been able to meet you in person not so long ago. I've always enjoyed our conversations; never change and stay amazing ^_^
      Love, Shelby smiley12.gif

      Are you feeling warm? Are you feeling fuzzy? Well get ready to! (And then go see a doctor because those things aren't normal D:)

      TOP! TOP HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!! The first time we ever played together, I said to someone later, "Top reminds me of candy," And you do! You're so jolly and happy and sweet - you're candy, Top! Metaphorically of course - or....or literally?? (...I've got to stop telling bad jokes!)

      But for reals - you're actually one of the nicest people I know and your kindness knows no limits. Everything you do, you attack with this positive attitude that, frankly, inspires me to do the same. :] Keep being wonderful, Top, and know that every time I see your post or see your name in Mumble, it puts a huge grin on my face! You're fantastic!

      Hey man thanks for kind words. I've always enjoyed talking to you and seeing the things you say and, at times, argue about in chat. You have great passion for the things you do and I wish I had that.

      Although I don't really say much during RT Radio, I like seeing everyone's interactions and contributing the small bits that I do. Thank you for being there, like everyone on the site, for listening to what I gotta say and when I need to vent.

      You are an exceptional person and, like you, can't wait to meet in person. Hope you are having a lovely day. smiley12.gifsmiley12.gifsmiley0.gif

      You have such a kind heart. I love hearing your thoughts on things and all about the cool things you do with the being a scientist thing and the music stuff and all of it. You are also an outstanding member of our Spread the Love admin staff. When you send me Christmas cards and such, they never fail to make me smile. I cannot express how damn excited I am to meet you at RTX this year, man.
      Spread the love with Warm Fuzzies of your own today!

      Dear Mr. Topham,

      Thank you for accepting me into your RTX shenanigans, and allowing me to be a part of a wild journey that is RTX. The few times we have talked, have been interesting. From that D&D conversation the other day, to the random skype comments. I can tell that you're a pretty cool dude. I hope to have more awesome conversations with you in the future, and get to know you better before RTX comes around.

      Sincerely,

      Javi (:

      Decided to write you a warm fuzzies letter cuz I'm random like that, but seriously thank you, for letting me join in on y'alls RTX shenanigans.

  • Questions answered by topham

    The company? I don't know.


    The community? I don't really know any more, it's so spread out, the new community site beta got pushed out, but I don't really know what's going on with it. There's lots of groups that were founded a long time ago, and are still active among themselves, but they tend to be away from this website now. I'm sorry I can't be of more help. 

    Hey!


    Unfortunately I am not the best at drawing, and arting in that fashion. There are plenty of people around here who are great at that kind of thing! People like Raf, OneBlueWolf, Lambency, Scheree, SailorGirl81, Myshu, Gaelfox, NaomiC and a few others are around here, I'd also recommend exploring the scary world of tumblr where there are quite a significant concentration of other community artists.


    Have an excellent day!
