Red Vs Blue Marathon - UpdateOlivia and I are cruising ahead full speed with our RvB Marathon this weekend. We're going to begin at 1:00pm with Season One and roll all the way through Season Four, ending sometime around 8:00pm (we'd have started later and run into the night, but there is a football game we do NOT want to compete with).
Here's where I need to enlist the help of all you fine RvB fans. We want to serve refreshments, and we want them to be Red vs Blue related (either red-and-blue food or food that relates to the series). So far we have:
Red/Blue Kool-Aid squirt bottles Red/Blue Lindt chocolates Oreos (for the vowel diet) Coffee Cakes (for "And HOW many snack cakes have you had today?")
We also want to get Strawberry Yoohoos, but that might be a bit more difficult to secure. And a big cake that says "Happy Birthday Sarge." But does anyone have any other ideas? I swear Tucker or Grif or someone once said something about doritos, but I can't remember... Ideas? And nothing alcoholic.
Nothing. It's lost its value over the years. It used to mean "Haha, that's really funny" but now people say lol to indicate any sort of response. Humor, woe, angst, amusement, enlightenment, indifference, inconsequence, you name it. The truth is, lol just does not mean what it used to. Take for example some of these sample conversations:
Person #1: Let's play Halo! Person #2: lol
Person #1: I ran a mile to work today. Person #2: lol
Person #1: I've lost the keys to my car! Person #2: lol
Person #1: Do you know what time it is? Person #2: lol
Person #1: I'm hungry. Person #2: lol
Person #1: I'm tired. Person #2: lol
Person #1: Huh? Person #2: lol
Person #1: BBQ maite Person #2: lol
Person #1: I want to go to the fair. Person #2: lol
SRSLY, WTF. Does lol all of a sudden mean "I have no intelligent response to give you at this point in time so I'm going to pretend that I find what you're saying amusing even if it's not even remotely funny." ?? Honest to gawd, no one knows what lol stands for anymore. People say it when they're not really laughing. You'll say to someone, "Ow, my throat is killing me" and they say "lol." THAT'S NOT FUNNY, DOUCHEBAG.
If you ask me, LOL means "Lords of Legend." And that's final.
I skipped dinner last night, and a Halloween party, so that I could wait for episode 81. By the time it finally came out, the dining hall had long since closed, and the party was long since over. So around 10:45, I decided to snag some Subway.
The guy behind the counter was totally drunk off his ass. He was "mock yelling" with some of his buddies who were customers at the time. He told some guy he wasn't even going to charge him for the water, and one of his co-workers was like "You certainly are going to charge him!"
Thankfully, a clean and sober worker made my turkey with bacon on hearty italian.
The poor guy behind me in line, though. The conversation went a little something like this.
dRunkz: Do you want it toasted or regular? Customer: Regular, please. dRunkz: Good choice, man. Cause you know, if I have to toast it, it's like another twenty minutes, you know? But I don't know, it's kinda cold out there, so toasted... mm... you know what I mean? Customer: Uh, yeah. dRunkz goes to put the sandwich in the oven. Customer: No don't toast it, I said. dRunkz: Oh, right man! Not toasted, got it! Sorry, I forgot. Don't worry, it's not even warm. HAHAHAHA.
Then when I left, the customer who was behind me was talking to his friends and he was like, "That guy was HAMMERED!" I looked back at him and laughed. "I'm LOVING that, LOVING that," he was saying.
Halo Machinima!Olivia and I are working hard to get our RvB Marathon to be a GO here at Uconn. I've started making flyers that we're going to put up, just, everywhere all over campus. Here it is so far:
If you're going to do something similar, feel free to use this (message me if you want the bigger version, or if you want me to personalize it). Just fill in the where and when and such over those faded Blue Tem and Red Team pictures. Those pictures are meant to be behind-text backgrounds. Actually, I encourage you all to spread the word about RvB at your colleges. DOOO IITTTT.
I'm also going to take pictures of the building we're holding it in so that people can find it more easily. Sweet Just a few more details to iron out, and we'll be running our marathon!
Red Vs Blue MarathonSo. Apparently it's going to cost us between one and four thousand dollars to run our RvB marathon publically here at Uconn.
I'm contacting RT right now to find out if they would mind if we played their stuff publically. We might be able to bypass the Movie Licensing fee if we get permission. There is just no way we can afford it other wise.
WE MUST SPREAD THE WORD. THE WORLD MUST KNOW ABOUT RED VS BLUE.
EDIT: GUS > AWESOME.
Not that that's news. But he wrote back to me already!
So long as the showing is for free and not for profit that is fine by us.
Of course we will do it for free If we even thought about doing admission, that money would go straight to RoosterTeeth -- but the SUBOG has all kinds of rules about what percentages of fees have to go where, and we'd rather just make the event free, especially if that's what RoosterTeeth wants. Besides, no admission fee makes for a much bigger audience
