    • The New Year Cometh

      3 years ago

      Starburst

      And... has anything changed for you? I began making some changes for myself about a year and a half ago, and I'm pretty happy with how I'm doing. I was very frustrated with how weak I felt and how much weight I was carrying, and I'm the worst self-starter in the whole world. I decided if I was paying for the help, I might take it more seriously, and I was right! I acquired a personal trainer, and for about 8 months, worked out twice a week, one half hour each time. That, plus practice hiking for a camping trip I was planning with by best friend, led me to lose 20 pounds last year. This year, I've progressed to taking classes with the same trainer and other clients. It's much less expensive and I've dropped another 15 pounds. I now weigh 165, and I'm much stronger. That's the part that feels really good. I'm also trying to consciously make better choices for myself, food-wise. Removing as much processed food as possible, concentrating on whole foods, and making a point of trying to do that at least 75% of the time has changed my entire approach to food.


      I'm honestly amazed that I've been able to not only do this, but stick with it even when things were super hectic and I was incredibly distracted. Here's my word of wisdom for anybody who's ready to make a change: it doesn't have to be dramatic. You can take it one small step at a time. If you stick with it, you will get to a point where you will not hate exercise. You may never love it, but once you GET fit, exercising GETS EASIER. The benefits I have received from making these changes is worth so much more to me than the money I spent. I looked at it as an investment in my self, and that's exactly what it turned into.


      If I can do it, anyone can.

      I have supported this site with store dollars (DVDs, shirts, etc.). I have also been a sponsor pretty solidly for the last 11 years. I stayed a sponsor when you raised the prices because you kept me on at $10, and I still loved this sad little broken site that limped along and that we all grumbled about.

      Now two things have happened.

      First, you have "updated and upgraded your site".

      Second, my sponsorship got dropped, and now it will cost me a minimum of $15 every six months for the "honor" of being a "sponsor" of this amazing new site you have gifted me.

      I'll pass, thanks.

      Get back to me when the site is actually operational. I'm trying very hard to be polite about all this, but the only reason I am even still here is because there are people here I care about in a group, and your groups and forum are so completely broken at this point I have honestly begun to believe that you hate us for some reason and would really rather we all just go somewhere else and stop bothering you. And take our damned money with us.

      Well. Be careful what you wish for.

      Is it some kind of sick fetish? Does somebody in the higher up enjoy having the site self-destruct with ever more unusable versions every several years?

      Please at least give us back the old, broken site.

      I'm really kind of embarrassed for these fellas.

      On yet another journey through the movie wonderland of ...movies. Welcome to opening weekend, 2015, at the Rodeo Drive-In. Now playing through Sunday:

      1) SpongeBob Squarepants/Paddington
      2) Kingsman/Hot Tub Time Machine 2
      3) American Sniper/Taken 3

      This is the drive-in's 66th year of continuous operation and our 30th as its owners. Pretty cool, I think.

    • And A Happy 10th RVB Birthday To...

      5 years ago

      Starburst

      Me!

      Tomorrow will mark my 10 year anniversary with Roosterteeth. I officially joined on the old site on August 9th, 2004. RT was my very first home away from home on the internet, and aside from facebook, is the only place the cool kids go.

      It's crazy to think that 10 years have passed since I dared to stick my toe in the original basement BAR, but what a trip it's been. The fact that I am still in contact with some of the people I met here 10 years ago is pretty great. A number of the basement BAR vets found a group on facebook, (that's not ironic at ALL) and so I still get to see what's up with them. There is a private group here that has a great number of friends, old and new, and so my friends list here still grows by one or two every once in a while, and I like that.

      I tend to wax nostalgic when I think about this stuff. I have to admit, the fun we had in those old BARS was something pretty special. It's also incredibly hard to try to explain it to someone who hasn't experienced it. We had no idea just how much fun we were having until it faded away. Now the fun is different, but I still have a real fondness for this site in my heart, probably because it seems just a little bit different from the rest to me.

      I remember this place before it was this place. I remember when 30 users online was a pretty big accomplishment. I remember when if you were online, your name was listed at the bottom of the page. You could have animated gifs for your avatar. I remember (no kidding) when Gus and Burnie used to post in the BAR sometimes, even. And Gav was a regular. I also remember that we never did give Barb a break. That was a mistake. We should have. I think she was just too pretty and intimidated us. But I would say that she managed to do okay for herself. I remember Neato's awesome pickle gifs, his list of ten rules to live by (still one of my favorite journals), Killgrey's photoshops, Show's dancing, Bole's strawberry shortcake, Luda's boner, Star's italics, Quazz as a blue guy, Jericho941, the bunny with a pancake on its head, the RVB family tree, and having an insane amount of fun, all right here.

      It was a pretty magical time. It's a lot different now. I guess nothing ever stays the same, but that's okay.

      I miss that fun, but I like where I'm at right now, so I'm not complaining. Just musing.

      Happy birthday, me.

      Please tell me you didn't see Iron Man 3. Because if you thought that Star Trek: Into Darkness was better, I don't think we can be friends anymore.

        There is no personal preference. You are just wrong. Wrong, wrong, wrong. HATE YOU FOREVER.

      • Starburst

        6 years ago

        Oh, I've seen both. It's just a matter of personal preference + extra warm fuzzies because I enjoyed Star Trek, whereas Iron Man 3 wound up feeling like a bit of a chore for me. I like Robert Downey Jr. A LOT, but the line between him and Tony Stark has gotten so blurry I'm not sure I can see it anymore. If they're lucky, everyone will peak at about the same time and the 2nd Avengers movie will rock out. But sorry- I like my Science Fiction spacy, and my heros in pairs. I love me a good buddy movie, and that's really what Star Trek is.

      Sorry that I never got the chance to make it over your way! With the kids, the distance, and the summer movie start times, it just was never practical. It's a shame, because I'm sure it would have been awesome!

      I got all excited because I was tabbing past the RT page and saw your avatar and thought there was a new post from you but it was just your face on my friends list which "helpfully" no longer has a way to see who's online and who's not.

      Thank you for the recommendation, Bursty! Rise of the Planet of the Apes was great! We went to see movies three nights this week since we were without power, internet, water, phone, or even a cellphone signal at the house from Sunday til tonight. We also saw Bridesmaids, which was hilarious, and One Day, which was also good.

      We took the girls to their first in-theatre movie this summer (Pooh). They did wonderfully! Can't wait until we have the chance to drive over to the other side of the bay next year. :)

      Little bit hard to have sex when my boyfriend is EIGHT HUNDRED MILES AWAY. He penis isn't quite that long. Worst part is that the last time he was out here, I spent the last night vomiting up the entire contents of my stomach instead of getting hot hot action. :(
