Summer Vacation Season
August 22nd, 2016

Posted by Kathleen

Hey all, we hope you’ve been enjoying LoadingReadyLive, our bi-weekly live variety show. We’ve all been really enjoying making it, but not enjoying it so much that we won’t take a break.

Last week four of us took the Saturday off (there was a wedding, and some family commitments) leaving a much smaller, but much more Wiggins-y crew to put together the episode. I think it turned out great. If you haven’t seen it, check it out! Fittingly, the episode is called Understaffed.

But you know what hasn’t taken a week off? Feed Dump. This week Cameron has some helpful extremely bad suggestions for ending neighbourhood feuds.

This week’s episode of the Graham and Kathleen in Japan vlog takes us to Ueno Zoo! It was very, very hot that day, so we cooled off by paddling around in the famous Ueno park swan boats. Spoiler, the swan neck does somewhat obscure your view from the boat, but it’s worth it because you’re in a swan boat!

This week on Tap Tap Concede, Cameron and Alex weigh in on the newest Planeswalker, Kaya, Ghost Assassin and tell us about new Highlander brew tips.

And finally in video game news, Blizzard has figured out the perfect way to troll trolls. GG Blizzard. Oh also there is a new Pokémon and it is made of nightmares.

Summertime Dumps and Vlogs, oh my!
August 15th, 2016

If your summer has been anything like our summer, it’s been hot. Almost too hot. At least too hot for us weak, mild weather loving Canadians. I’ll keep today’s update short so you don’t have to tax yourself too much in the hot weather.

Do you dream of going on a summer vacation? How about going to a place that’s even hotter than where you are now? Japan is very hot in the summer. It’s day 11 of Graham’s Japan vlog series — we hit Akihabara and eat honey toast, which was VERY trendy last summer in Japan. It was also really good. You can make it at home, but it’s a huge pain in the butt.

Speaking of Graham and vlogs, the arms race is on between James and Graham, and Graham has won this round by putting up another update! Follow Graham and I as we explore aged hippie heaven, Salt Spring Island.

Feed Dump this week could have had a lot of titles, but really “Beej, no” ecapsulates so much of what I wanted to say. Beej is a delight on Feed Dump, really.

And finally, CheckPoint weighs in on the year’s chillest game, No Man’s Sky.
