Well to those who missed my tweet/draw along to the RoosterTeeth Extra life stream yesterday here’s a recap of the craziness. Unfortunately, I missed probably a fourth to a third of the stream due to work and the fact I hit my 24-hour mark around 5am and only had 4 hours of sleep the night before. However, It was magical and worth it in so many ways. While I’ve been working on not waxing poetic as much, I feel like this calls for a bit.
For various reasons, I was really losing faith in humanity at the beginning of this past week but seeing all the generosity and hilarity unfold during that stream really brought that back for me. It’s the kind of humanity that I love, and enjoy seeing. It’s the one that is unified for a cause laughing and (at times even) singing together to try and help people. It’s the part of humanity that will sacrifice themselves mentally and physically in order to bring a smile to someone’s face. It’s the part of humanity that I’m proud to be a part of. This is a beautiful community, and it has been proven to me time and time again. So, thank you, Jack, Caiti, Miles, Michael, Lindsay, Barbara, Burnie, Ashley, and everyone else involved (cause this list would be fucking long), and thank you to the souls that donated. Thank you, @roosterteeth , not just for the kids but thank you from me, for reminding me that people are good and at the end of the day we can accomplish the impossible together.
As a final note, I also wanted to congratulate Michael and Lindsay, you two are great people and will be wonderful parents.
As a final final note, the incongruity of this long speech, full a feels, being framed against a backdrop of a live stream that had a comedic relief dildo at 2 am CST is not lost on me. It was great. Trust me.
