Post PAX Mini-Update!
September 8th, 2016

Posted by Kathleen

Hey everyone!

We have returned from PAX and somewhat recovered from four days of madness. First up, thanks to everyone who came by, said hi, gave us gifts, attended our panels and just generally made us feel so loved and appreciated. We had a wonderful PAX and it was thanks to all of you. <3

If you weren’t able to come to PAX and are feeling like you missed out on all our panels, I have good news for you!

QWERPLine Live, the LoadingReadyRun panel and the Improv Initiative were all recorded, and will be uploaded to our YouTube channel in the very near future. For those of you who subscribe to QWERPLine as a podcast, the audio-only version will also be going up soon.

The Late Night Dub Fight was also recorded, but if you want to see it, it’ll be going up on!

And finally in non-PAX news… there’s a new Sidewalk Slam!

Hey everyone! Are you going to PAX this weekend? Are you interested in watching LRR and LRR-adjacent people on panels? Maybe you also want to make your hands touch our hands? Or perhaps just engage in some commerce? We can help you accomplish all of these things!

If you want to come say hi, buy some of our cool merch, or just look at us from far, far away, the best place to find us will be in Bandland, located level 6 of the WSCC.

This is the level six map.

But we don’t just have a table! We’re on a ton of panels!


LoadingReadyRun – Comedy Etc!
Join the LRR crew as we show some funny videos, answer your questions, and write a short sketch live!
6:00 pm, Wyvern Theatre

Late Night Dub Fight – “Improve” these clips!
Back for another round, it’s the Late Night Dub Fight! Relive moments from your favourite cartoons, video games, movies, TV shows, and anime, in a new and hilarious light. The Late Night Dub Fight pits panelists against each other to find out who can “improve” classic clips by redubbing them live with their imposing improv skills. No one knows what show host Ian Horner has up his sleeves, or what the cast members will say in this all-out assault on your funny bone.
9:30 pm, Hippogriff Theatre


Jackbox at PAX… Box?
Do you like Quiplash 2? Of course you do!
Do you like Jerry Holkins, Kris Straub, Nika Harper, Graham Stark, and Kathleen De Vere? Of course you do!
Well you should check out this panel and watch these awesome people play this awesome game. If you are unfamiliar, it’s just gonna be a bunch of hilarious people making snarky responses to questions while you vote on a winner live from your phone.
7:00 pm, Wyvern Theatre


The Improv Initiative Initiates Improvised Initiatives!
Rising from the most hilarious grave you’ve ever seen, the Improv Initiative returns to PAX for another performance!  This motley collection of improvisers will perform never-before-seen, never-to-be-seen-again scenes based on your suggestions! Games will be played, laughs will be had, and improvisers will compete for your affection!
2:00 pm, Sasquatch Theatre


QWERPline, Live!
A live recording and performance of LoadingReadyRun’s Qwerpline podcast—a morning show from the fictional town of Nsburg, where the news is stupid and the people are stupider. We’re told it’s like Nightvale, if you took out all the occult stuff and filled that void with raccoons and lunacy.
4:00 pm, Sphinx Theatre

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

Posted by Kathleen

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.
