Happy Valenbrines Day!

Today, on Top Gear Valenbrines Day, Graham gets mad, James films in a shop and and I buy a card.

Yes! Today is the most romantic day of the year! Valenbrines Day! The day young friends, lovers and the romantic at heart surprise each other with tender gifts of picked onions, exchange bouquets of dill and make homemade pickled herring for one another! So lovely and salty! We here at LoadingReadyRun are celebrating Valenbrines Day by bringing you not one, but two fresh new videos!

First up is the latest Loading Time, which details how we filmed our X Ways to Y Valentines (the inferior cousin of Valenbrines Day) video:

Here’s some trivia!

  • I am not really in this because I was getting the boom (which we forgot at the office) and the Valentines Day card prop at the same drug store James and Paul were in. They saw the boom and asked me if I was with the group who were filming earlier. I lied and said no. That’s my natural trouble-maker’s instinct kicking in.
  • Those plastic roses have seen better days. They were shedding little bits of green plastic everywhere.
  • Neither Alex or Paul drink, but they were both OK with eating the vodka-soaked ice cream. There is probably a way to exploit this loophole.


Today also brings us the PENULTIMATE episode of the GPLP for Cursed Crusade. The best part about the game at this point is just listening to how angry Graham is. This game is making him hulk out.


  1. You know what’s the worst part of this game that’s taken me all the way until now to notice? The sound of weapons hitting armor is TERRIBLE. It’s like 95% of all the sound you ever hear, and it’s a sound closely associated (through every other game ever) with “ineffective attack”. Why oh why did they strive so hard for a few arbitrary points of realism?

  2. I noticed that Graham and Kathleen have replaced the “Magic Cave” with shelves and moved the computers to the other room. :-D
