Blue Monday
January 16th, 2017

Posted by Kathleen

Hello! Did you know today is “Blue Monday” — supposedly the most depressing day of the year?

I myself am a little bummed out because we had Molly Lewis and Ben Soileau visiting all week, but now they’ve gone back to the land of the Screaming Freedom Eagle, never to return (until the next time they visit.) At least I can look back at all the fun we had making videos and streaming stuff by checking out all the content we put up in the last week. (Note to self: what a segue!!)

It was the very first episode of The Crapshoot, our new Friday afternoon stream where we write, film and edit a Crapshot live on Twitch, and the finished product turned out amazing. Here’s what we (and you) came up with.

Molly and Ben also put their comedic talents to good use by joining us for Feed Dump, making some truly amazing Monty Python references while they were here.

We also mixed up the stream schedule a bit for this month to make sure Molly and Ben could join us for LoadingReadyLive, lending us incredible musical, sartorial, and drone-ical talents.

But that’s not all that went up this week! Our quarterly anime roundup podcast Anoani has returned with the 2017 winter season roundup!

The December Mail Time is also up. Someone sent us a hat that Graham refers to as “The Night Diddler”, so look forward to that.

And the Nintendo Switch press conference finally happened! We have facts now! And also a lot more questions. But mostly so many opinions to share with you on CheckPoint.

Happy New Year

It’s 2017! We did it everyone! We finally escaped what felt like 2016’s unending collection of bad news, celebrity deaths and dumpster fire jokes.

So we’ve decided to start off 2017 with a bang — all this week our friends Molly and Ben will be joining us for Twitch streams and other fun things! They’ll be stopping by Tinker Tailor Solder Fry, Watch + Play, LoadingReadyLive, and probably doing a ton of other cool things while they’re here!

And in other exciting news, we looked at the streaming calendar, thought “when don’t we stream?” and realized there was a hole on Friday afternoons. So we’ve decided to fill that hole with an exciting new show we think you’re really going to like.

So tune into our Twitch channel this Friday, January 13 at 1:00 pm PST (4:00 pm EST, 11:00 pm GMT, 10:00 am Tuesday AEDT, etc, etc) for a NEW STREAMING EXPERIENCE!

But what should you do while you wait for all the cool streams this week? Maybe check out some of the sweet videos we’ve put up recently.

Things start to get out of hand for Ian and James in the latest episode of Commodore Hustle!

Appropriately for the new year, we have a crapshot about the passage of time.

Another crapshot about the shifting landscape of standard.

A Feed Dump with an international flair.

And if you missed it, we the replay of the Aether Revolt Pre Pre-Release is now up for your enjoyment!

Thank you everyone for your support in 2016! We’re going to make 2017 even better!

Happy Holidays!

Twas the week before Christmas, and all through the Moonbase,
Many videos were filmed, filling up SD card space,

Graham worked on Crapshot 400 tweaking special effects,
Featuring James and Kate in a situation complex,

And Beej wore and apron and handled pork cutlet,
Which was purchased on sale to keep to our budget,

Kathleen and Cameron, were in full filthy swing,
In Feed Dump where Ben discussed phallic playthings,

On Tap Tap Concede Serge helped us crack packs,
Then stuck around to answer some common judge FAQs,

Then Adam and Graham recapped Hell in a Cell,
Talking titles, storylines and airing their grievances as well,

Meanwhile Paul quest continues along with Space Quest III,
Wherein Roger wears underwear, and fights while slippery,

And finally on Mail Time we opened packages a many,
Featuring hats, letters and a handmade Desert Penny,
Also Gundam for Ian, and Sailor Moon R for Heather,
And enough candy to sustain us through the cold winter weather!

Happy Holidays everyone, and thank you for all your support this year.

 

Glogs and Vlogs!

Hey everyone,

It’s real cold here. As in, we got snow cold. Which by Victoria standards, is quite the surprise and it generally makes the roads quite dangerous to drive on. So what should you do when snowstorms threaten? Road trip! That’s what Graham did, heading down to Seattle to attend the annual Child’s Play charity dinner.

But we didn’t dawdle in Seattle! We rushed right back so we could film another episode of LoadingReadyLive. We did all sorts of things, including Sweding some Japanese commercials. What an international episode!

This week on Tap Tap Concede, we realized we had a LOT of unopened packs, many of them from the wonderful people we met in Australia. So we decided to open them!

In shooting some crap news, we want everyone to get the help they need. If you’re feeling a stressed out when you’re moving house, you should consider hiring some movers.

And don’t forget to eat healthy!

Hey everyone! It’s Monday and we have a whole new batch of videos for you!

First of all, I just want you guys to know that Ian, Ben and I delivered a near perfect Feed Dump this week. It’s got everything. Huffing, whistling, tallow, closing time… a hat? Just watch it, this one is really good.

Next up Graham and I are back on the CheckPoint train. So choo choo, the destination is a Tumblr stuffed with fanart of Mads Mikkelsen.

Last week on Tap Tap Concede, we talked about the new Commander 2016 decks. Spoilers, they are sweet. (And if you want to see how they played out in a game, all our replays go up on the LoadingReadyLive YouTube channel!)

And finally in LRRPlay news, Paul Quest continues with the first episode of Space Quest III!
