RETURN OF THE PODCAST(S) + AskLRR Thread.

Postby James » 11 Jan 2013, 16:17

Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls, we are extremely happy to announce the return of the LRR Podcasts. Yes you read that right PODCASTS.

We spent all of today setting everything up and will be recording the very first LRRcast since August tomorrow morning. Everything will be revealed about our plans for the new podcasts when tomorrows episode goes live (Not entirely sure when that will be, but definitely within the next couple days)

But in the mean time please ask us questions!!!! We haven't been around for almost 5 months in this medium and I'm sure you have things you want to ask us about. So shoot!

!!!

:D

Expressions of excitement!


Before Loading Ready Run was a "thing", what did you want to do with your futures?

What's your process for building a Magic deck (in a non draft/sealed situation, when you have access to more cards and plenty of time)?

You have a lot of very ridiculous hats. Which do you think is the funniest or strangest?

How do you feel about potatoes?

Does Andy speak any non-gibberish French?

Whom among you has the best French? (present at time of recording, because I know Tally wins)

Also, who has the biggest vocabulary?

Dear LRR, this is the first chance I've ever had to respond in one of these threads, and over the months I have thought of many questions I wanted to ask you. Unfortunately, I've forgotten most of them, so:

If you could go back and add a stinger to one of the videos you did before you had regular stingers (i.e. most pre-Escapist videos), which video would you pick that deserved a stinger, and what would you do?

Are there any other makers of funny videos on the internet whose work you particularly enjoy (not counting people from The Escapist)?

Speaking of which, does it sometimes feel weird knowing that you were possibly the first ones to start posting funny videos on the internet? (I've tried looking for anyone who did it before you, and I just can't find anything from before the Angry Video Game Nerd, who started in 2004.)

Finally, do you have anything planned for LoadingReadyRun's 10th birthday?

Happy halloween, thanksgiving, birthday (where applicable),Christmas, boxing day, new year and ALL THE ENGAGEMENTS.

Now that you've told us all you can about Strip Search are there any other secret projects in the works? You don't have to tell us if you can't but technically nodding isn't saying anything.

You guys are amazing at sticking to your schedule, but do you ever look back on a video and wish you had taken one more day to work on it?

any examples?

any videos that make you cringe?

Way back before Loading Ready Run was even conceived, what got you interested in filming videos in the first place?

What is your favorite character/characters you have ever created for LRR?

Can you give us a hint at any projects your working on?

Will there be a Phailhaus DVD at some point?

Some short DVD-related questions:

Will the Season 2-3 DVDs ever make a return?

When you announced the "It's Magic" DVD, you said Wizards told you that you had to do it "now". Does this mean it will only be available for a limited time?

Are any of the current DVDs "limited edition"?
Looking for an older video? Try this wiki page. (Current through the end of 2008)

Actually my first ever post on these forums! Long time watcher etc!

Any chance you'll put older LRRcasts on Itunes? I can only find the 10 most recent, and it'd be cool to be able to get some more on there.

Have any of you ever looked back on a video you made, and wished you hadn't done it, or given it more time and effort?

Hey guys, glad to have 'casts back!

Do you have any go-to music to play while you have a magic duel?
I can't seem to ever think of anything specifically magic appropriate.

Does the LRR crew have any examples of when a favourite work in a series is different than what they think is the best?

Yeah podcasts are back?

I noticed with this season of Rapidfire the scenes were a little less "rapid." Generally more of the felt like mini-sketches with a set up middle and end than a supper quick one or two line gag. Was this change intentional or just the evolution of you writing style? Did the existence of Crapshots effect how you did it?

Vaguely based on your last video, if you could make one new years resolution with a magical guarantee that you would have enough will power to actually do it, what would it be?

If you could have any character from fiction be your Commander who would it be and what colors would they be?

I know Graham said that the Feed Dump James hosted was done without his knowledge. What inspired that?

On a completely different note, and inspired by a question earlier in the thread, in what ways do you think your styles as writers have changed over the years? Do you think all the changes are for the better?

Hey LRR!

Long time listener, first time questioner-er.

Normally when I drive to the east coast to visit my family, I listen to LRRcasts (and the Derp show) to pass the time, keep myself alert, and generally keep my car from getting embedded into an angry Quebecois' farmstead somewhere off the A-40. However, when I drove up last week this was not as much of an option, having listened to pretty much all the LRR casts I could get to work through my phone. So I discovered the magic of audiobooks!

In summation, my question is, what are some of your favourite books?

Thanks :)

Oh my god oh my GOD.

Do you have plans for new GPLP?

Who's coming to PAX East?

If they invented replicators tomorrow, and they say, "Hey, LRR, choose a hamburger to put into the replicator's replimemory so it can replicate one perfect repliburger for all time," Which burger would you choose?"

Also: I got the Binding of Isaac shirts! I sent the one that didn't fit to Fayili.

Also, I've been rewatching all the James Bond movies. Am I crazy that I kinda like Octopussy? Who is your favorite Bond girl/villian/whatever?

I have noticed that some of your earlier Escapist videos have made it to your YouTube account. Even though they are still they are still on the escapist, does this mean that you've regained the distribution rights to the videos? possibly heralding the early planning stages of the Season 7 DVD? (to be released some unknown span of time following the Season 6 DVD to be released some unknown span of time in the future etc.)

And on a far less mature note, How long did it take Kathleen to stop giggling after Steve Butts was made Editor in Chief of the Escapist? And how disappointed was she when he stepped down?
