PAX South, January 29-31
It may be almost on top of us, but some of the crew will be appearing at PAX South!
Graham, James, Alex, and Cameron will be in San Antonio all weekend, so come by our table in Bandland to say hi!

Panels we’re on:

The LoadingReadyRun Panel – Friday, 4:30PM, Armadillo Theatre
Join us for entertaining words, and answering your questions!

Scared Yet: A Discussion of Horror Games – Saturday, 5:30PM, Bobcat Theatre
Alex joins Kris Straub, Dabe Alan, and Brandon Rym DeCoster to discuss horror video games… a topic on which Alex has strong opinions.

PA and Friends Play Drawful – Sunday, 11:00AM, Main Theatre
Graham and Alex join Scott Kurtz and Katie Rice to play a very public game of Drawful, and it’s going to be delightful.

grand-prix-vancouver-whiteGP Vancouver, The Same Weekend as PAX South
“Are you guys going to be at GP Vancouver?”

We’ve been asked that a lot, and any other weekend, we would be! But you’ll note that it’s the same weekend as PAX South, so most of us aren’t able to attend.

Our Vancouver friends, Jeremy and Matt, are planning to attend—as are Serge, Nelson, and a bunch of other local players/Friday Nights regulars—so say hi if you see them!

MAGfest, February 18-21
After a multi-year absence, LoadingReadyRun returns to MAGfest! Graham, Beej, and Ian are heading to Maryland, and they’re bring the Late Night Dub Fight with them!

The LoadingReadyRun Panel – Schedule TBA
Join Graham, Beej, and Ian as they fill an hour by answering your questions and going off on tangents.

Late Night Dub Fight – Schedule TBA
Dubmaster Ian brings his melange of bizarre movie and anime clips, and it’s up to Graham, Beej, and some special guests (to be announced) to provide new dialogue and sound effects.

Hope we get to see you at one of these conventions!

Bill Watt 1983-2016
January 19th, 2016

Posted by Graham


We lost a great friend today. This morning, Bill Watt was released from his long fight with Huntington’s Disease.

Most of you weren’t aware that he had been suffering with this disease—the same that claimed the lives of his father and sister. He didn’t like to talk about it, so we generally kept the specifics vague, but Bill’s condition had been worsening for several years. Even so, his passing came as a surprise to us, and one we weren’t yet prepared for.

As Kate “Bill’s Mom” Watt has shared in her many Desert Bus stories, a lot of LRR’s early bonding happened in Bill’s basement during high school. Games of D&D with Bill guiding us through Temple of Elemental Evil, or just hanging out playing Goldeneye, our weekends were spent at Bill’s, sleeping poorly and eating horribly.


In LoadingReadyRun, Bill was part of the early cast—sometimes against his wishes—eventually becoming a key member of “The LRR Crew” following our live sketch show in the Victoria Fringe. A 6’11” redhead isn’t your typical sketch comedian, but Bill got more and more comfortable in front of a camera, and even after stepping back from LRR, continued to put up memorable driving shifts at Desert Buses 1-7. I know he’d want us to remind you of his perfect “0 Crashes” record at DB5.

Bill never wanted us to treat him any differently, he didn’t want to be remembered as a man fighting Huntington’s. So we won’t—we will remember Bill as the hilarious, clumsy, stubborn asshole we’ve always loved. We miss him.
