Personal Quote: "Ha! No."
A man died yesterday. His name was Monty.

He was considered by many to be a man of incredible talent and creativity. When it was announced that he had been admitted to hospital, the community decided they would pay his hospital bills, raising over one-thousand eight-hundred dollars in two days. Well wishes came from all over the world, from countless friends and fans. Sadly, he did not recover.

In the field of animation, he was a pioneer, a man of firsts. He created some of the best machinima films ever seen, and eventually came to fully realize one of his dreams. The animated series 'RWBY' premiered less than two years ago, and currently has one of the strongest international followings of any similar series. It is the only anime made in the United States to ever be officially dubbed and released for a Japanese audience.

I don't have much to add here, over what the Rooster Teeth and RWBY communities have already said. The outpouring of support for his friends and loved ones in immense, beyond the telling of it. As is the grief over his loss.

His co-workers and friends made the official announcement here.…
It is humbling, as is their wish for the community.

If you've never heard of Monty Oum, please consider viewing some of his many works. He was a brilliant artist, and perhaps more importantly, a friendly guy. He will be sorely missed.

Okay, so I looked up 'Der Graf' and tried to translate the lyrics all by myself and it all went well until I got to 'der Graf hat Angst, Angst vor HIV'

I'm still giggling.

It's brilliant, no?
My German teacher introduced me to the band. She played the video for "Junge" to my college class. We were shaking by the end.

Nah, we were loving it! I owe a lot of my taste in modern German punk/metal/rock/rap to her (which is therefore broad, yet questionable). We'd grind over genitive case for two hours, and she'd end class with a music video. It was pretty phenomenal.

Of course one day she played Die Arzte's 'Schlaflied' and were all creeped right the hell out. Well, the ones who could follow the lyrics were. The rest just followed the video, and were only slightly creeped out.…
