We did it!

Greetings everyone. Welcome back for the weekly blog post. I’m your host James Turner, please sit down (or stand, lay down… whatever. You do you) relax and enjoy the show.

We did it! We made it through the first two weeks of 2018 and have emerged the other side a little bit older and a little bit wiser. And now, with that behind us, we look forward to the remaining 50 weeks of 2018 and think… now what? Well let me tell you what. It’s only the 17th of January and we’ve already launched two new shows. First up, Dice Friends! D&D returned to the LoadingReadyRun wheelhouse this past Monday and it was a blast to be back at the table rolling dem dice and playing make believe. If you missed it fret not, we have you covered. The replay can be found right here!

Dice Friends airs every Monday night at 5PM Pacific on our Twitch Channel.

Next up we have the second episode of our brand new, limited run podcast Countdown to Infinity with myself (James) and Matt Wiggins! If you’re not sure what it’s about let me give you the quick elevator pitch. Avengers Infinity War comes out this May. In fact it comes out in exactly the same number of weeks (from the start of the year) that there are MCU films. So now we’re watching one a week and chatting about it. We’ve released Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk and just recorded Iron Man 2 last night. That will be out this Sunday but in the mean time here is the most recent episode. 

Of course we’re still making all that other stuff you like. Feed Dump? Yup!

Mail Time? Oh you better believe it. 

Crapshots? Please.

2018 is going to be great… just don’t ever leave this website. I can’t promise you anything beyond our content 😛

PAX South and Some Videos.

Greetings one and all and welcome to the weekly blog update. Let’s get right down to business. 

As we mentioned in the previous post the first two weeks of 2018 are a little bit busy for us here at LoadingReadyRun. Ben, Beej and Ian just got back from MAGfest and it sounds like they had a great time as evidenced by this fantastic video by Ben.

There was two more of these, check his timeline 😀

While they were away, the rest of us remained here in Victoria and hosted the first Pre-PreRelease of the year. You can peep the entire Rivals of Ixalan event here.

And the fun doesn’t stop there. This weekend James, Graham, Beej and Cameron will be heading south to San Antonio, Texas for PAX South. Three day badges are sold out, but you can still pick up daily passes at the PAX website. We’ll be hanging out at our booth all weekend, but Friday is the day of both our panel as well as Graham sitting in on the Jackbox event.

With all that squared away let’s talk about some new stuff. This past Sunday we launched a brand new podcast called “Countdown to Infinity”. Join James and Matt (Yup, Matt’s back… in podcast form) as they watch and give their thoughts on every Marvel movie in the MCU. You can listen to it on YouTube, or wherever you get your podcasts from.

MOVING ON! You should really watch this YouTube update video. We talk about all sorts of neat stuff, but most importantly is the return of D&D to the LoadingReadyRun wheelhouse. It kicks off this Monday, January 15th at 5:00PM. Prepare yourself for Dice Friends! More info in the video below.

And that should just about do it for this weeks update. Of course we have a ton of videos which you can find over on our YouTube Channel. You should head over there and make sure you’re subscribed. Till next week. BYE BYE.


New Year. Fresh Start… Kinda.
January 2nd, 2018

Hello and greetings friends, welcome to the first blog post of 2018. I won’t lie, the last several months of 2017 saw these posts too few and far between. BUT NO LONGER! It’s a new year and that means a fresh slate and endless opportunities. Which, while true for many of you isn’t so much the case for us. We here at LoadingReadyRun are starting 2018 off feet to the ground going 100 km/h (that’s 62.137119223733 mi/h to our dear American readers) So to kick off this year let’s see what we have going on.

This weekend is a double whammy!

If you happen to find yourself in National Harbor, Maryland this week then you might just run into Beej, Ben and Ian who will be attending this years MAGfest. These three beautiful boys will be running a booth all weekend long where you can find our most excellent merch. And as if that’s not enough they will also be hosting the LoadingReadyRun Q&A panel at 7:00PM on Friday Night and then on Saturday at 11:00PM it’s everyone’s favorite, Late Night Dub Fight!  More info can be found at http://super.magfest.org/

Next up we have the first Pre-PreRelease of 2018! Join our regular cast of characters (Adam, Graham, Kathleen and Cameron) as they do battle with our very special guests. Melissa DeTora, Chris VanMeter, Evan Erwin and Reuben Bresler! We are super happy to say that because of your overwhelming support for these events over the past 2 years they will continue through 2018.

Looking ahead, wayyyyyyy ahead to next weekend, it’s time for the first PAX of the year. James, Cameron, Graham and Beej are heading down to San Antonio for PAX South. We’ll have our merch table with a brand new shinny Pinny Arcade pin and all of our other fabulous wares. We’re participating in two panels this year. First up on Friday at 4:00PM in the main theater Graham will be joining some very funny folks for The Jackbox Party PAX. Then you’ll witness Graham in a mad sprint to the LoadingReadyRun panel as it happens at 5:00PM the very same day. PAX is always a fantastic weekend and single day badges are still available. Just head over to http://south.paxsite.com/

And that my friends is the first two weeks of 2018. Not the ideal gentle start to the year one hopes for, but then again it very rarely is. That said, we look forward to sitting down as a group in mid January to discuss what this upcoming year (Our 15th!!!) is going to look like. First step will be getting everything back on track and on schedule to the best of our abilities. We are excited and ready to get this year going, we hope you all stick around with us.
