      Holy. Crap. 


      I just got done with the 12 Monkeys series finale, and while I will not spoil anything (because if you're a sci-fi fan and missed the show you absolutely need to watch it), I have to say that the finale was easily one of the best send offs I have ever watch. And per my last journal, I have watched a damn good amount of shows over the years, and none of them top what I just watched. 


      Time travel stories are tricky to end, because the mystery of how it will end drives much of the tension, more than most other sci-fi stories because often the ending will have had major effects on previous seasons and how they played out. Meaning accidental ret-cons or major story points just wiped away without a satisfying conclusion to make it worth it. But 12 Monkeys nailed down each and every single story thread the show had left and then delivered the goods in the feels department. 


      It was perfect, and you should go right from reading this journal over to Hulu to watch what will go down as one of the best sci-fi shows ever.

    • Finales

      1 week ago

      MrWartburg Team Fat

      I watch a lot of TV. Seriously, a lot. A fair amount of what I watch is binging shows that have long been off the air, like I didn't watch the '04 BSG until it had been off the air for a full year, or most recently I powered through all The Newsroom in May. But I also devote a lot of my time each week to live/recently released (like stuff released all at once on streaming services) Here's the full rundown of the shows I watch that are currently on the air/still in production: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Arrow, Black Lightning, The Blacklist, The Gifted. iZombie, Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash, Supernatural, The 100, Voltron Legendary Defender, The Netflix Marvel Series (though I did skip Iron First) Game of Thrones, Westworld, and 12 Monkeys.


      And that last show on the list, 12 Monkeys, is less than a week from it's finale. They're releasing the final episodes in a semi-binge format by dropping three episodes each of the last three Fridays with the final 2 hour episode this Friday. I was watching the penultimate (I love that word) episode and it dawned on me that of all the shows I watch live in my rotation it's the first to actually get a finale since Justified went off the air in 2015. The rest of the shows I've picked up are still going strong, but starting with 12 Monkeys there's a fair number of them wrapping up their runs in the next couple years, with iZombie and Game of Thrones both getting their final episodes in 2019. 


      It's a weird feeling going into a finale of a show you love, kind of like finishing up the last book in a long series. But at least there's a whole bunch of shows I get my binge on to get my fix. Got a whole list running to burn through once 12 Monkeys wraps up, think I'm going to start with The Expanse.


      P.S. If you're a sci-fi fan, you owe it to yourself to check out 12 Monkeys. It takes the time travel mystery in some crazy and unexpected places and packs one hell of an emotional kick. The final season has been a damn masterpiece and if they stick the landing tomorrow, it will go down as one of the greatest sci-fi shows of all time. Sucks it got it's start before SyFy re-found their footing, so it never really made waves like The Expanse eventually did, but still, it rules.

    • The Beard Lives!

      3 weeks ago

      MrWartburg Team Fat

      Three weeks ago, I had to honorable obligation of shaving my beard because I charity stream I ran with a few RT peeps. We crushed our goal of $750, but the beard stretch goal was crossed off stream, so I split the difference and trimmed it all the way down, way shorter that it literally has ever been since I started growing it 6 years ago.



      Df8j7koVMAAMuc-.jpg

      I was less than enthused, but I did it, for a good cause I may add. And now, three grueling weeks later, the beard has begun showing signs of life!


      Df8j8EZU8AALyVV.jpg

      Don't worry, the beard will be out in full force by RTX, so you can bask in it's gloriousness in a a month and a half! (Definitely still coming to RTX, but the Crohn's has been less than cooperative of late, so fingers crossed.)

    • 3 journals in 3 days?

      1 month ago

      MrWartburg Team Fat

      What’s this? 3 journal posts in 3 days? I’m in danger of developing a pattern! But it has been an eventful three days, so the successive posting is a bit warranted.

       

      Yesterday I was able to unwind from the charity stream shenanigans (we raised over $1,600!) by going to see Deadpool 2. It wasn’t quite as good an all-around film as the first one, which had a simpler and tighter plot, but it was still quite fun. There’s even more WTF? moments that are left unexplained, kind of like what exactly Ajax powers are in the first one, but there are 2-3 standout scenes/sequences that blow the best parts of the first film out of the water. Two of them are action set pieces that really show off that this movie got double the budget of Deadpool 1 and the other is a more dialogue and sight gag driven scene about two-thirds of the way through that had the whole theater laughing their asses off for what felt like five straight minutes.

       

      And today I bought my Booze Cruise ticket for RTX, which will be my first in six RTX trips. Done some booze cruising here at home on a few small rivers with some friends on homemade pontoons, but I’m reasonably sure this one will be more fun, even for a guy who can’t drink. I also finally hopped aboard the Stardew Valley train today. Been talking with my stream co-pilot/best friend for a while now about adding it into our rotation, but I finally bit the bullet and added it to my Steam library. So I’m sure I’ll be streaming it and screaming into the void while I try to figure out how things work in the very near future.

       

      Oh, and I started my “be just a bit less of a piece of shit” plan today which includes cutting out pop* (no caffeine headaches so far), tuning up my bicycle, and buying a couple pairs of dumbbells to add to the ones I already owned. I also plan on adding in a few nutritional supplements next week, but my actual food intake probably won’t change too much as all the good stuff they tell you eat while dieting would literally rip my intestines a new hole. Yet another way Crohn’s Disease likes to mess with things in my life. And just to have it out there in written form, I’m currently 172 and my goal is to down to at least 160, preferably even 155 by RTX, mostly so I can rock the dress shirt and tie I want to at the Sidequest Gala without popping button.

       

      *Here in the sane part of the world, we call it pop, not soda. Get over it.

    • Well, that went better than expected

      1 month ago

      MrWartburg Team Fat

      Yesterday I helped run a charity stream for World Irritable Bowel Disease Day. As someone who's been diagnosed with Crohn's since 2001, it was a pretty solid day to raise money for the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America. We started the 12 hour stream about $175 toward the the goal of $750 and we blasted past that during Jackie's (@kriss) section. Then, Jenn (@LoZelda) did a squat for every dollar donated and did a whopping 362 and somehow didn't have her legs turned to jelly. My stream went a bit off the rails, but we let the donaters decided what we did during games of PUBG and that some how evolved into one of my mods demanding a NSYNC lip-sync to "It's Gonna Be Me". I thought it would be a trainwreck and I was not wrong.



      And to round out the day the @MaddyMonster took things way back with some Pokemon Snap. We finished the 12 hours with $1,372. I proceeded to crash pretty much right after, but when I woke up I discovered someone had donated another $250 to bring us to over double our goal!

      So yeah, pretty solid Saturday.

    • What is Crohn's Disease? An on stream AMA!

      1 month ago

      MrWartburg Team Fat

      In case you missed the announcement, there’s a charity stream in a couple days! This Saturday is World IBD Day and we’re raising money for the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America! There’s a kick ass stream team on tap:

       

      DdAN8sSVwAAVYBA.jpg

       

      And some awesome raffles to give away:

       

      DdAN9KVUwAU3Xox.jpg

       

      The action starts at noon (CST) on the 19th over at https://www.twitch.tv/geekyfriedrice

       

      I’m one half of the Bottom Shelf Nerds team, and for our section of the stream we’re going to be doing some community multiplayer action. In between each round I’ll be educating the stream a little on what Crohn’s is and my own experiences with the disease in the 17 years since my diagnosis, and I could use your help to do that! Got a question about what Crohn’s is? Wonder foods I can’t eat? How many surgeries have I had? Now’s the time to ask! I’ll be answering any Crohn’s question I can, and running through some facts about the disease on stream from 6-9 pm CST in between PUBG rounds. Simply go here: https://goo.gl/forms/4OpkUZcugKKzVv8k1 and ask away, or just comment below with your question and I’ll add it to my list!

       

      See you guys Saturday

    • It's Time for a Charity Stream!

      1 month ago

      MrWartburg Team Fat

      Today is World IBD (Irritable Bowel Disease) Day and some of my fellow Rooster Teeth community members and I are running a charity stream to raise money for the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America! You check out the donation page right here: https://fundraise.ccfa.org/fundraiser/1331282! We'll be streaming from 12 pm CT to midnight, you can hang out in the main host channel right over at https://www.twitch.tv/geekyfriedrice!


      mmgqdR4.jpg


      The stream team's locked in and ready to roll.


      DdAN8sSVwAAVYBA.jpg


      And we go some kick ass raffles to give away.


      DdAN9KVUwAU3Xox.jpg


      Every $5 donation is 1 entry to any piece you want on the table, but you need to tell us which one. There's a message field when you check out to donate where you can put something like "TARDIS" or Pokemon starters. Entries stack, so $10 is 2 entries, $15 is three, and you can split donations too! So for example you could put this in the message field, "2 for Zelda shield, 3 for Mass Effect signs" on a $25 donation for 5 entries! (The ME signs come as a pair!)


      If words aren't your thing I also made an explainer video about the raffles and the stream itself!



      Hope to you see during the stream today!


    • Let's find a #CureForCrohns!

      2 months ago

      MrWartburg Team Fat

      I’ve been streaming and making let’s plays for a little over 4 years now, and in that stretch of time I’ve ran three Extra Life campaigns (and had a near-death experience with a habanero that I’d rather forget) and participated in 3 separate group Twitch charity events that I can remember, but I’ve never actually coordinated a group stream of my own. And in keeping with my personal goal to do more charity work this year, other than a lone Extra Life stream in the fall, I’m writing this to announce the #CureForCrohns stream, which will take place May 19th! (Two weeks away for anyone reading this the day it was posted)


      mmgqdR4.jpg

       

      May 19th is World IBD (Irritable Bowel Disease) Day, and since I have Crohn’s Disease, (my BottomShelfNerds stream partner, Joey, also has a Crohn’s connection with his mom having the disease as well), the day made perfect sense to host a charity stream with streams from some kick ass people I've met through this very site. It will be a 12 hour affair, starting at 12 pm CST with our host Jackie (@kriss) from 12-3, Jenn (@LoZelda) from 3-6, my BottomShelfNerds team from 6-9, and rounding out the night with Maddy (@MaddyMonster) from 9 until midnight. We'll be streaming to our own channels, but you can check out all the action all day long by hanging out in the host channel at https://www.twitch.tv/geekyfriedrice!

       

      But  streaming isn't all we're going to be doing, we’ve also got some nerd themed woodburning pieces to raffle off! They’re pretty cool looking if I do say myself, which I do, since I made them. And everyone’s got a chance to win one!

       

      XrYWqtw.jpg

       

      Interested in having one of these up on your wall? You are? Well, in that case, all you need to do is go here: https://fundraise.ccfa.org/mrwartburg and donate $5 for 1 entry along with a note in the message field which piece you’d like to be entered for (it's in the 'Your Information' section of the checkout page) ! The entries are stack-able, so $10 is 2 entries, $15 is 3, and you can split them too. As an example, you could donate $20 for 1 entry ($5) to the TARDIS and three entries ($15) for the Pokemon starter set! We’ll be taking donations all day right up until the end of Maddy’s stream, at which point we'll run the raffles live to cap off the stream! You can donate for as many entries as you'd like, but there is a 1 raffle win limit per individual. Just be sure to leave a note in the message field how you want your entries to be applied so we can keep the spreadsheet updated as we go! Once again, the link to donate is: https://fundraise.ccfa.org/mrwartburg!

       

      If you want a better idea of what the pieces look like, including their individual dimensions, I’ve uploaded them to an album right here: https://imgur.com/a/EPJMx

       

      And lastly, just want to give a huge shoutout to Jackie for volunteering her time to host the event as well as answer my off the wall questions since I’ve never ran an event like this before with other parties involved. And of course big thanks to the badasses on the stream team for helping out as well!

       

      I’m sure I’ll be posting about this a couple more times in the run up to the event. In fact, there will be at least one more post hopefully later this next week with some sweet promo art of the stream team, so let me know if you have any questions that I need to address in the next update or in the comments!


      P.S. - The poster was designed by my friend Chris, check him out at @GammaKoruchador on Twitter or his Twitch! Speaking of Twitch pages, if for some reason you're not following everyone of the stream team for this event, fix your life, and go follow them a.s.a.p.

    • One down, five to go

      5 months ago

      MrWartburg Team Fat

      I've decided that in 2018 I'm going to do a second charity stream in addition to Extra Life and do more woodburning. So I hit on an idea that let me do both! May 19th is World IBD (Irritable Bowel Disease) Day and I'm going to be running/hosting a Twitch charity event that day. I'm in the midst of the planning stages still, but I know what the raffles are going to be at the least! And the first piece, the big one, is all done save for some clean up and the polyurethane coat!


      DVe67tfUQAMEIDM.jpg


      This bad boy took nearly 15 hours to complete so I'll have to think of a faster way to finish it if I make it again as a commission (which I may start doing later this year). The border is actually dug into a wood a bit which is what added the longest amount of time since my burner isn't really the best for that kind of burning. Gonna have to to work with my brother to maybe rig up a chisel end of something and heat that up to save time for the next attempt.


      But I have several simpler pieces to do as well! Thankfully, these will take far less time to complete. Heck, the BSG and the Mass Effect pieces I could all finish and poly in the time it took me to get the Pokemon piece burnt.


      DVc-ZY3VAAAFysI.jpg


      I've never burned the Team Free Will (from Supernatural) or the TARDIS pieces before, so I'm excited to try that out. Might make the TFW piece into a clock, we'll see. But I'm also excited to start sending out some e-mails to potential streamers for the charity day now that I have some visuals to go with the pitch! 

    • A new year, four weeks later. Whoops.

      5 months ago

      MrWartburg Team Fat

      Man, 2018 is already going by quick, January’s almost gone! I meant to have this up at the start of the new year as sort of a launching point for getting back on the site a little more regularly, but between work and helping with the remodeling of the kitchen at my parent’s house, where I’m now staying for a while, things got pushed back a bit more than I would have liked.

       

      First big update for 2018 is actually tucked up there in my intro; I had to move home. While last year I finally got out from under the mountain that was medical debt from my Crohn’s Disease care (and I sort of literally blew up that mountain) that just meant I finally had to start going to work on the other debts I’d been paying the minimum on or had put into forbearance, like for my car or student loans. That doesn’t leave a whole lot of room for rent, and where I’m located the rent is significantly inflated as there are far fewer rental properties than there are people looking to rent. Forest City, IA, while being a small town of about 4,000 with only three major apartment complexes larger than a dozen apartments, happens to be home to two of the biggest employers in northern Iowa, 3M and Winnebago, so that makes living on my own rather difficult with my job. But, moving home will definitely allow me to get a head of those aforementioned bills and be able to save at the same time.

       

      And since I moved home, I took over one of the old rooms in the house and turned into my new office/stream set up. It’s still a work in progress, but I got about half the room sorted out. DTSVvF5V4AEq4_1.jpg

       

      And to go along with that new office my ISP finally got the fiber optic cable installed in my parent’s house last week. Still not great, but 15 down/15 up is a lot better than the 8 down/.5 up I had at the beginning of November when I moved in. This internet upgrade also means I can finally get back to streaming, which I’ve been unable to do since Extra Life. Currently I’m streaming my first playthrough of Horizon Zero Dawn, but Joey, my Bottom Shelf Nerds co-pilot, has been streaming a lot of PUBG duos or squads the past couple weeks while I joined in over Discord, and I have had a blast after taking nearly two months off from streaming due to the piss-poor internet I’d been dealing with. Here’s a little slice of some of the crazy shit we’ve gotten up to during those games:


      I’m hopeful in 2018 that we can get the BSN Zone, our video podcast, off the ground once we have physical space for it (I’m hoping we can do this before Joey moves into his new house in May, but who knows), as well as produce more edited let’s play content at different points throughout the year. And speaking of streaming, we’ve also got a pretty fun charity stream project lined up for May 19th and 20th. That happens to be World IBD (Irritable Bowel Disease) Day, something quite personal for me given I’ve had Crohn’s since I was a kid. And Joey’s mother has Crohn’s too. The stream’s still REALLY early in the planning process so I won’t go too crazy on the details yet, but I’ll have another journal for that here in a couple weeks once I hear back from some people about streaming, raffles, and promotional art and the like. Stay tuned for more on that!

       

      But what about you guys? Any cool and exciting new things coming down the pipe, or that have already happened in 2018?

      Hey! I didn't get to your post in the OCC until it was a couple pages behind, so I'm posting here for relevancy. If you haven't passed through yet, Joe's KC (formerly Oklahoma Joe's) is the best! Otherwise, Jack Stack is almost as good (but not as traditional) by means of BBQ and Arthur Bryant's is a Kansas City tradition (but it's less like Texas BBQ and more like North Carolina BBQ so that may be a problem, having just left Texas!) How long will you be in KC?

        The mission is literally called "The Fireship." It looks like I am trying to get out of a blockade designed to keep me in Nassau. And beating that got me an achievement for completing sequence 7.

      This is really random but do you know John Kleppe? He's a cousin of mine and used to go to Wartburg too.

      I was curious to see how small of a world we live in haha

      Hey man,

      I heard of your shitty morning, can't say that I've lived through worse, but as my main man Zach Galifianakis said, "It's all uphill from here"

      • Jewvion

        Just as Zach said it would

        Thanks, the day has gotten better, but that wasn't too hard to accomplish after it started.

        If I remember correctly, you had posted something in a forum I was a part of. For the life of me, can't remember which one though. Then again, maybe it wasn't a forum at all and my brain is having a massive fart right now.

  • Questions answered by MrWartburg

    Kind of depends on the video, but for the MrWartburg Show I actually script it out, either in outline or more exact depending on the topic, make sure the green screen is well lit and the mic is functioning properly. From there it's shooting however long for any number of takes until I think I said what I wanted/how I wanted and then have to edit, which can take a while or not very much at all depending on the content of the video, such as video overlays, annotations, etc.
