*Tap Tap Tap* Is this thing on?

Hello and welcome fellow humans to this weeks blog post.

Let’s kick things off with some good old fashion videos.

This last Saturday was LoadingReadyLIVE and with that means a brand new episode of commodoreHUSTLE. I won’t lie, at one point there was talk of driving up to Mt Washington and trying to film a segment for the show there, but it just wasn’t in the cards. So we decided instead to take the idea of silly winter sports and tie it into the cH universe. We all think it came together really well. And you’ll wanna keep your eye open for the February LT later next month, lots of fun outtakes of Beej and his pie.

Let’s talk about Crapshots shall we? I have a couple great episodes to share with you, but first The Crapshot Bracket. 

Hey everyone. It’s Rytel, the fan behind LRR Without Context, with a new LRR-related fan project. Inspired by The Magic Bracket, a single-elimination tournament bracket containing (at time of creation) every Magic: the Gathering card ever printed, The Crapshot Bracket will commemorate LRR’s achievement of producing 500+ mini-sketches by pitting the first 512 of them against each other in poll-based combat. Whoever wins the poll moves on until only the champion remains. 

That is from the Intro/FAQ post that you will find at The Crapshot Bracket Website. We discovered this ourselves this past week and made sure to include it in our most recent episode of LRL. Wanted to make sure as many folks know about it as possible. To note – This is a fan run website, we have no involvement in the event. However we are just as keen to see which episode comes out on top as we’re sure you all are. With that said, you know what you won’t find in any of those match ups? The most recent couple episodes 😀

Next up, LoadingReadyLAN 2.0 is this coming Saturday and we are all SUPER excited for some good old fashion Local Area Network shenanigans. We’re working out exactly what games we’ll be playing soon. So keep your eyes out on our Twitter account for that info. 

I’ll close out this post with some really quick info about PAX East and GP Seattle. Both of these events are coming up in just over a month, the weekend of April 10-11th to be exact. At PAX East you’ll find Graham, Beej and Adam (along with a yet to be decided 4th crew member) and as for GP Seattle, James is going to do his best to make it down there for the weekend to play some Magical Cards. As we get closer to those events we’ll have more information to share.

And that should just about do it for this weeks blog post. Go forth and be kind to people, it’s really easy and makes the world a better place. BYEEEEE!

The Easiest part is the Post Title

Let’s start this week off with an apology and then me getting angry shall we. I missed a few weeks there and that’s on me. Then I did up a great post last week, hit publish and thought “Great, back on track with a legit AF blog post”

Where did it go WordPress? WHERE DID IT GO!?

Oh well, let’s try again shall we. One thing I want to make sure everyone who enjoys and watches our content see’s is this YouTube update from a week and a half ago. There is a bunch of really solid information and announcements in there and you should 100% go and watch it.

So, having now watched that let’s lead off this week with the final Feed Dump. Episode 420 – Dank in Peace

Everyone here has loved and contributed to this show over the past 7 years, but you can’t just keep doing something for the sake of doing it. We have plans, BIG plans for the future of this format and we are incredibly excited to get working on them very soon (In fact, this evening February 13th) we are starting work on getting both the tech and format of the show worked out. No firm release date yet, still a whole bunch of unknowns for us, but it’ll be soon.

Let’s follow that up with something that isn’t going anywhere, The Crapshot.

Crapshot Ep513 – The Fundraising was a product of The Crapshoot. Our weekly Twitch streamed show where we write, film and edit Crapshots live with you. As mentioned in the YouTube update we have tweaked the format for that show ever so slightly, which should help us keep up to date with our twice a week schedule for that series. 

Next up let’s talk commodoreHUSTLE! We have rolled this fan favorite show into LoadingReadyLIVE! Our live variety show, streamed every other week on Saturday at 6PM Pacific. This will result in WAY more commodoreHUSTLE throughout the year. To put some numbers behind this, in the first quarter of last year (January-March 2017) we released 2 episodes. This year, in the same amount of time (and assuming nothing goes horribly wrong) we’ll have released 5. We should be on pace to release 15-20 episodes of Hustle in 2018. So with that said here are the first two episodes under the new system.

And let’s close off this weeks post chatting about Dungeons and Dragons. We are 5 episodes into our new series, Dice Friends. The response has been incredible and we’re so happy to be playing Table Top RPG’s in the office again. The current campaign is Escape from Semolo Plateau featuring Paul, Kathleen, Graham, Beej and our good friend Dale as GM and that will continue for several more weeks to come. If you need to catch up head over here for the YouTube Playlist or find it in podcast form wherever you get your pods from.

And that’ll just about do it for this week. If you’re looking to join our ever growing Discord community click here and if you wanna peep what’s coming up on our Twitch Channel, head over to the Event Page. Thanks for being you, you’re awesome. See you next week.
