      It's been three months since I began the Entertainment Business Masters Degree program at Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida. Compared to the Bachelors program, my classmates are legitimately driven, intelligent, and overall cool people to work with. Granted, the entire campus is full of a bunch of passionate, nerdy students (like myself), though it's still quite refreshing to not be the only person participating in class and asking/answering questions.

      Last month I actually did a project on Rooster Teeth. Our class was called "Executive Leadership," in which we learned about various leaders within the entertainment industry. I decided to present my leader as Burnie Burns, who I believe is a leader in Online Community Management, as well as Online Video and Content Production.

      I got 100 on it. :D

      My current class this month is called "Project and Team Management," a course which primarily focuses on developing effective strategies for putting together a project, and how to translate those strategies and ideas to your fellow team members. I just finished an assignment involving plotting my ideas for a project into a timeline, and planning out general times and dates. Right now, my current idea is to produce a stage production based off of Ian Doescher's incredible book William Shakespeare's Star Wars.

      For those unfamiliar, this book is a retelling of the original Star Wars Film (A New Hope), written in Shakespearean language (Iambic Pentameter, "Thou Hast," the whole nine yards.)

    • Why I'm an RT/AH fan

      2 years ago

      jp4464

      For the past two years or so, I've been attending Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida, for the Music Business Bachelors program. Many of the classes that I've had all revolve around effective marketing tools, self-branding, and most things you'd talk about in any business degree program.

      The one thing that I don't see discussed enough in class is community, and the idea of cultivating a community comprised of your most passionate and dedicated fans.This is essential to the growth and development of companies today. Communities, when banded together, can accomplish truly amazing things; Operation Supply Drop and Extra life are just some of the examples of the RT community coming together to do something awesome.

      This is probably the biggest reason why I'm a Rooster Teeth fan. Being a part of this community has been such an incredible journey. I've met tons of amazing people, played countless forum games; I mean look at my profile picture! I'm currently role playing as a Holden Caulfield-esque warrior with a Super Scope from Super Smash Bros in the gifQuest RPG. What other website could you see such weird, passionate, and truly dedicated people, all in the same place?

      I'm so excited for the future of RT as a company, and I'm looking forward to all the great content that will be produced!

      Happy 12th Anniversary, Rooster Teeth! smiley7.gif

    • 5 Facts (Because why the fuck not)

      2 years ago

      jp4464

      So no one tagged me...


      smiley2.gif

      but I'm gonna make a journal with my 5 facts anyways!

      Because, you know...


      Why the fuck not...


      1. I'm a multi-instrumentalist. I can play saxophone, guitar, bass, drums, and piano. I play (and listen to) a variety of genres, though I like to focus on playing rock, jazz, and contemporary styles.

      2. I'm extremely sarcastic. This is due mostly to me being born and raised in North Jersey. I also like to contribute this to the fact that started watching Achievement Hunter videos like three years ago, and their sense of humor carried over to mine.

      3. I'm a Nintendo fan at heart. My first game system was a Gameboy Advance, my first home-console was a Gamecube... I have a DS, 3DS XL, Wii, Gameboy Advance SP, and I go over my friend's house to play Wii U games. And while I do play other games (PS3, Steam), I'll always be a Nintendo fan. (SPLATOON HYPE).

      Speaking of Nintendo games...

      4. I LOVE SMASH BROS. For those of you guys who have seen my journals a few months back, I was hyped as fuck for the new Smash. Since its release, I've been playing ALL the Smash games. I've been playing A LOT of Melee and Project M, as well as Smash 64, Smash Wii U, and even a bit of Brawl.

      5.I graduate from Full Sail University in June. I started the Music Business Bachelors Program in October 2013. Since I've been doing the Accelerated program, my degree lasts 20 months, instead of the average of four years. And I graduate in June! Holy. Shit.


      Alright, there's some facts about me! I'm gonna tag @Nic, @JinnyJelly, @SGT629, @MrWithay, @CalPal, @bigbuck1, @washyboy, and @Xenos137, because these people are all rad and cool and shit.

    • Rest in Peace, Monty Oum

      Monty was such an inspiration to us all. His sheer drive, passion, and dedication to his work shown through with his incredibly produced productions.

      This community...

      No.

      This family has lost a visionary, innovator, and hero to countless people.

      My thoughts and condolences go out to Monty's friends, family, colleagues, the entire RT community, and all those affected by this loss.

      Monty will be truly and dearly missed.

    • gifQuest is BACK!

      2 years ago

      jp4464

      TL;DR: CLICK HERE TO PLAY gifQUEST!

      Hey guys, JP here.

      For those of you not aware, @MrWithay is the founder of gifQuest, the interactive adventure where you controlled a stone golem and explored the world. You would comment what you would like the Golem to do, and the most voted comment is drawn and animated.

      Myke (MrWithay) is back with a whole new adventure, and I'd REALLY like to see you all participating in this new iteration, now known as gifQuest T7-17.

      We have a group page up, which you can click HERE to go to.

      Please spread the word around, as I'd really like to see this version of gQ garner (and hopefully surpass) the audience that version 1 had.

      Thanks guys, and I hope to see you all in the comments of tomorrow's panel!

    • Updates, Updates, and more Updates!

      jp4464

      Hey, so I'm too lazy to make a TL;DR, but basically, I'm going to ramble on for who knows how long, talking about God knows what.

      Anyways, It's been a while since I've posted a journal! I've been so busy with school, friends, and posting/browsing the RT subreddit. Overall, life's been pretty busy!

      As I'm typing this, it's 1:30 AM, December 31st, 2014. New Year's Eve. Jesus Christ, time flies when you're busy as fuck.

      I flew up to Jersey on the 20th, and I leave for Florida on January 3rd. I know, not the longest break in the world, but a busy man must keep his stride! Or something like that. I dunno, I'm not making any edits to this journal , so fuck logic. (Okay, you didn't notice this, but I made a grammar mistake, and had to correct it. Don't tell anyone)

      I've been playing more Fire Emblem: Awakening and Bravely Default, two games I have yet to finish. God, they're just SO GOOD. I've also been playing my friends in Smash. So far, I've destroyed a bunch of my friends at Melee, though like two of my friends beat me so far. Oh well, at least it shows that I still have A LOT of work to do, especially in regards to improving my Smash game.

      Besides this, I've been chilling with my friends for the past two weeks. Surprise surprise, everyone here missed me. I mean, being away from your friends for six months can be quite the torture, though I'm really excited to just fly through these next few months of school, graduate, and HOPEFULLY stay in Jersey for a few months.

      On the RT subreddit, my username is jp4464, though I go by the completely made-up name, "Reference Hunter." Basically, I format a list of references and links mentioned in each Let's Play, and post it in the comments of the video. People seem to like it, and I enjoy making them, so I guess it's a win-win. However, I haven't done it in the past few weeks, mainly because I'm on vacation. In fact, I've barely watched RT/AH content, simply because I'm running around with friends and family. And I'm actually quite happy to take a break from the massive amount of content produced by Rooster Teeth and Achievement Hunter.

      There's so many more things I'd like to talk about, but I don't want to make you guys suffer any more. In fact, a lot of the shit that I'd like to talk about is pretty personal, though I can save that for another time. In the mean time, I hope you all had a Merry Christmas (Fuck you, I know it's past Christmas), and I wish you the happiest of New Years!

      Don't get too drunk tonight, friends!



      I lied. Get fucking trashed tonight, ladies and gents. LET'S FUCKING GOOOOOO

    • So Smash 4 is out now...

      2 years ago

      jp4464

      And holy shit. IT'S SO.

      FUCKING.

      GOOD!!!!!!

      In fact, I haven't posted a journal in like a week because I've been playing it so much with my friends.

      The music is phenomenal, the visuals are BREATHTAKING.

      I'm really digging all the added modes and events, but the most important aspect of any Smash game is its gameplay.

      And it's just so fun. Really.

      I main Ness, Yoshi, and Rosalina, though I've been really digging Shulk, Luigi, and even the mighty Captain Falcon.

      Just... holy shit. If you haven't bought a Wii U yet, I believe you really don't have an excuse to not buy one now. There's just so many great games, and Smash is absolutely one of them.

      And if you don't have the cash, hassle one of your friends to get Smash. Seriously.

      This game is just beyond hype.

    • Super Smash Bros. Music = HYPE

      2 years ago

      jp4464

      For the past couple of days, I've been listening to the music from the Smash Bros. games. Currently, I'm listening to tracks from the Melee soundtrack. A few hours ago, I was jamming to the new tracks for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.

      Oh my god. Hype. Hype everywhere.

      I just really fucking love Smash.

        That is very true. If I ever get a 360, that will be one of the first games I get.

        I actually never knew about this game, never mind the fact that I've never heard about the character within it.

        Ah. Now that you mention it, I think Perfect Dark was referencing that in their game.

        It's actually a reference to Michael Madsen's character from the film Reservoir Dogs, written and directed by Quentin Tarantino, and released in 1992.
