Hey everyone,

Here at LoadingReadyRun, we believe comedy is serious business. No really, we do —  we put that phrase on a business card and everything, so you know it’s true.

So in order to make sure we’re producing the kind of content you want to see on YouTube and Twitch, making merch you actually want to buy and just overall doing the best job we can do, we’re polling you!

Go to lrr.cc/survey — it’ll take you less than five minutes, and it will help us make 2016 the best year for LRR yet!

Pumpkin Spice Video Season
October 6th, 2015

Hey all! It’s October and we’ve been real busy putting up tons of new content for you! Have you seen it all? Maybe you missed some. Here’s a taste of what you might not have seen yet. As a helpful reminder, the best way to stay up to date with all the content we create is to subscribe to our YouTube Channel! All our videos and podcasts go up there, so you’ll never miss any of our content.

First up in the new episode of Commodore Hustle. The crew are still trying to make money and Alex and Beej are bored. What’s the worst that could happen? Ha ha, trick question.

Next up is Qwerpline. Reaction to this new show has been great and we’re thrilled you guys are enjoying it. In this episode, Nsburg deals with a crisis, Derek checks out a new river, the Qwopter’s grounded, and an inventor joins Graham and Alex in the studio. As a reminder, you can also subscribe and listen to Qwerpline on iTunes for an audio only version. And if you are enjoying the iTunes version of Qwerpline, please give it a rating and a review! It helps us and more importantly, it helps other people find the show.

Feed Dump brings you the story of a very dumb man. Which isn’t really new by Feed Dump standards, but when you cover weird news, it turns out most of the people involved are real stupid. Also a giant pumpkin has gone missing.

And finally CRAPSHOTS! Here’s everything you might have missed over the last two weeks.

Fresh batch ‘o new content govna!
September 15th, 2015

Posted by Kathleen

It’s Tuesday! That means another week has gone by with a ton of new content coming out. As a helpful reminder, the best way to stay up to date with all the content we create is to subscribe to our YouTube Channel! All our videos and podcasts go up there, so you’ll never miss any of our content.

Speaking of videos AND podcasts, the first episode of Qwerpline is now live. If you liked the pilot, you’ll love this show about a small-town radio station staffed entirely by weirdos. Intrepid intern Derek returns, Richter is back in the traffic Qwoptor and despite efforts to the contrary, a concerned citizen calls in.

You can watch Qwerpline on YouTube, or subscribe to the audio-only version, which is now up on iTunes. And if you do subscribe, be sure to leave a rating and a review! It’ll help other people find Qwerpline when they’re searching in iTunes for it. There’s a new episode of Qwerpline every two weeks!

Speaking of …casts, vidcasts continue to happen!

First up there’s a special topic-less LRRCast.

There’s also a brand new Tap Tap Concede looking at some of the new Eldrazi cards from Battle for Zendikar.

Speaking of podcasts, there’s a new Fight the Future, where Paul and Dan discuss the feasibility of the sci-fi universe of Uglies. And if you’re wondering where Magnum Rewatch has been, it will return! Magnum watching has fallen victim to catch up work on other shows, but Kathleen and Graham will get back to the adventures of everyone’s favourite moustachioed P.I. very soon!

Finally, Feed Dump’s update schedule has been a little chaotic post-PAX as we’ve been trying to get back on track. Episode 221, Slippery Dick came out on Friday, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t watch it! Regular Feed Dump updates resume this week.

P.S, did you see our new Battle for Zendikar spoiler video? Who says we don’t suffer for our art.

Back to School updates!
September 8th, 2015

It’s the first week of September and you know what that means! Back to school! New blog updates! As a helpful reminder, the best way to stay up to date with all the content we create is to subscribe to our YouTube Channel! All our videos and podcasts go up there, so you’ll never miss any of our content.

If you are subscribed to our YouTube channel, you’ll know it’s been a busy summer here at LRR HQ, and a couple of new projects have launched themselves out of the Mystery Box!

First up, Qwerpline! Based on the ultra-popular Desert Bus radio show improv sketches Derpline/Qwopline/Qwerline, Qwerpline follows the wacky adventures of Nsburg, a very weird small town. It’s like Nightvale, except replace the weird occult stuff with stupid people. Really stupid people. You can subscribe to the audio-only version on iTunes (or your podcasting client/app of choice), or check out the YouTube version, complete with art by Featherweight!

New out of the Mystery Box is Sick Rips, a mini-series of animated comedy shorts based on Magic Cards. The first episode is Coat With Venom.

Moving onto series that aren’t new, but in fact, have been going for years, CheckPoint hit episode 200 this week! That’s almost 4 years of making fun of stupid video game news. And boy, let me tell you, that well DOES NOT RUN DRY.  This week we make fun of shady promotion contracts, dumb merch and Destiny’s attempt to make it more fun to be crummy at the game.

And finally, If you weren’t at PAX this year, you’ll be happy to know that the video version of our PAX panel is now online for your viewing pleasure! Listen to us answer questions, show off new stuff and then group write a Crapshot!

And speaking of Crapshots, look at all these Crapshots! So many crapshots! Have you watched them all yet?
