Personal Quote:

I believe that the human spirit is indomitable. If you endeavor to achieve, it will happen given enough resolve. It may not be immediate, and often your greater dreams is something you will not achieve within your own lifetime. The effort you put forth to anything transcends yourself, for there is no futility even in death.


Except for the Rooster Teeth Podcast, all Rooster Teeth content was put on hold the day after Oum's death in remembrance.
