Hey everybody, long time no see!

It’s been a while since we talked. It wasn’t you, it was us. First Graham and Kathleen went to Australia, and then Desert Bus happened ($695k HYPE!), and then some sort of super cold circulated, leaving 70 percent of the crew bedridden.

^^ That was everyone except Ian, Cori and Cameron.

So in short… it’s been… one heck of a month here at LRR HQ.

However, after a whirlwind November, we’re finally back on track. LoadingReadyLive resumes on Dec 10! Craps continue to be shot! Kathleen has wrestled the hosting chair away from Ian for this week’s Feed Dump, and  more Commodore Hustle episodes are on the way soon! And yes, we still make Friday Nights.  There’ll be a new episode next week.

The streams are back on track (this week’s CheckPoint featured a slightly worse for wear Kathleen) and all your favourite podcasts are updating again too — a new episode of TapTap Concede went up today, Sidewalk Slam went up last week, and there will a new Qwerpline next week!

We’re also rapidly catching up on the behind the scenes videos — the October Mail Time and October Loading Time are online, and the November Loading Time is rapidly approaching completion.

Thanks for your patience this last month, and stay tuned for more of your favourite content!

The updates will continue until morale improves!

It’s been a while since we’ve had a proper blog update, so I’m sure you’ve been totally lost without me telling you what we’ve been up to.

As usual, it’s been busy around here. So in case you missed any of it, here are some of the most notable things we’ve done recently (but not everything we’ve done, because I’m too lazy to link to every video from the last two weeks. To make sure you’re up to date on everything, subscribe to our YouTube channel!)

LoadingReadyRun turned 13 years old this month, so we acknowledged that (sort of) in the most recent episode of LoadingReadyLive.

The latest Battlefield game lets you play a pigeon. Has war finally gone too far? CheckPoint investigates.

The long-awaited nicknames episode has returned to Tap Tap Concede! Graham, Kathleen and Alex giggle and groan at a fresh bunch of unhelpful nicknames for Kaladesh cards.

Feed Dump discusses zombies, dishwashers and bears… Oh my! We also put on fake moustaches and act silly, if you can believe it.

And finally, Crapshots gets real this week, hitting hard on the Vape Nation and getting candy from strangers.

Big Australian News!

Spin Off Season!

Hey everyone,

The leaves are beginning to drop, it’s getting cooler and it’s getting darker sooner.* That means it’s time to spend more time inside, illuminated by the soft blue glow of your monitor and snuggled up under a blanket. This of course, will make a marked difference from summer, where you spent more time inside, illuminated by the soft blue glow of your monitor and sweating in your underthings.

Anyhow, why not watch some LRR videos! Since we’ve set up our P.O. Box, we’ve had a people send us a lot of really neat stuff. So much so, we’re going to start doing Mail Time videos! Here’s the first one!

After taking a break for the Kaladesh Pre-Prerelease, LoadingReadyLive is back, and featuring a very special guest — ANDY!

Qwerpline has also returned from a longer-than-planned break due to PAX/vacations/Derek’s incompetence. But the QWRP crew is back with a new sponsor, but much of the same old silliness.

Sidewalk Slam is also back on the Horse. Adam and Graham cover the events of August and look back at a VERY questionable pregnancy bit from the Attitude era.

Paul has started a Let’s Play, and in true Paul fashion, it’s a classic game. Space Quest!!! I remember this game pretty fondly from my childhood, and I’m sure Paul will find it just as aggravating as I did.

And finally, what are spiders doing in your house? Maybe just looking at your tax?

A wild Commodore Hustle appears!

It’s now Fall, which means the sweltering heat of the day star is finally (probably) behind us! Celebrate a season that won’t give you swamp thigh by watching this brand new episode of Commodore Hustle! Ian convinces the crew to go on a team building exercise. What could go wrong?

If you crave more entertainment with our faces, the August Loading Time is also now online. See how much fruit we had to buy for the fruit bobbing pool we made up for LoadingReadyLive. Spoiler, it’s more than you might think. Double spoiler, the eggplant went unclaimed and rotted in the bottom of the moonbase fridge. We just got rid of it last week. It was an awful puddle of slime and mold.

Speaking of LoadingReadyLive, after taking a break due to the Kaladesh Pre-PreRelease (which is also online! Watch all 9.5 glorious hours on the LRR replays YouTube channel!), this week LoadingReadyLive will return this Saturday!

But while you’re waiting for Saturday, maybe watch the latest Feed Dump, or some crapshots? Maybe an episode of CheckPoint? We have a lot of content for you, is what I’m saying.

So, as always subscribe to us on YouTube to keep up with everything we’re doing!
