Kathleen and Graham will be holding down the askLRR fort this week.

Any questions?

This thread we'll be locked in a couple hours.

Collectively, how many MtG cards would you say the LRR crew has?

Also, I remember you mentioning something a while back about being unsure about what game you would do next for GPLP. Have you given any thought to Darksiders II?

What is your favorite series you have ever created? What series has had the greatest fan response? My personal favorite was the Pahilhaus.

I'm embarrassed to say this but Ive never seen Dr. Who. What would be a good episode or season to start with?

I haven't watched anime in years, what series or movies would you recommend I check out?

Hey guys, Hello from Guelph Ont. Long time viewer first time asker. What are your favourite childhood nostalgia movies? For instance mine is the Neverending Story.

Also, love all your work, it's helped keep me sane during my bout of unemployment.
I don't even...what?

Dear Dr. Graham: On your Tumblr - about 2 years ago - you commented that you take horrible video notes and found a Video Ideas note simply reading "Where else can I poop?"

Please tell me that this idea can be finally dragged out into the light and seen by the adoring masses for all of its hilarity potential? I can help write it if you need (how often do you find LRR using fan-based script submissions?) - or mayhaps it can be one of the foulest X ways to Y video ever seen!

Also, will you be returning to Tumblr anytime soon? We miss you there.

Hey folks. Do you have any plans for another GPLP?

Also, I just started playing FF7 again but I also just re-watched the episode of Checkpoint where Graham tears it apart. I agree with the points he made but I still love everything about the game and get teary-eyed when I hear Aeris' music. Is there anything that you are fans of that harsh criticism can't sour, however true it may be?

It seems like internet-content producers have recently started taking a stronger stance to disuade their viewers from using adblockers. I personally have never used an adblocker, but I don't know about anyone else. Is LRR having any problems with videos being adblocked?

Dear Planeswalker - LRR, when you go travelling, to cons/tournaments/etc, what's the one (or more) thing you always take with you, excluding the tradition 10ft Pole?

Are there any books/magazines/periodicals/articles that have caught your eye recently that you would recommend? I myself regularly read The Economist and Private Eye to supplament my Political knowledge.

You use FCPX for editing. Have you tried anything else? What do you think of FCPX compared to the earlier FCP?

Hey Gang!

Is LRR/Bionic Trousers, at the current work level, able to support Paul and Graham for the rest of their working lives?

Now that you are moving to be a "production house" do you think you will be creating new shows / replacing shows once they have run their course or do you think you might start pulling more to behind the camera and in the editing booth.

Are you members of any professional societies for actors, film makers or other groups?

Can you still enjoy other peoples videos/shows or do you find yourself distracted too much thinking "we could do that" or "well they did that wrong"

Why are the weekly LRR videos the length they are? Is this a limit on the time it takes to shoot, the time it takes to edit, the amount of prep required, guidance from The Escapist, etc?

How about a live-streamed LRR video editing session, so that all us behind-the-camera geeks can see how you work! :)

How many takes did it take to do the Strip Search title sequence. Half of them look like they're on the verge of cracking up at any minute!

Hey Graham and Kathleen, How are you? Just a few quick ones:
Not sure if it's your decision or PA, but just to make sure, is there going to be a dvd of strip Search once the series is concluded?

Similarly will there be a season 2 dvd of Friday Nights?

Lastly for Kathleen: I know you're very busy but I got excited when you did some new comics, any news for more?

Thanks guys!

Im going to be in seattle in a few weeks and I have a desire to play board games and magic the gathering with freindly people and not have to leave if I get a hankering for a nice grilled cheese, any suggestions on where I should go?

Best way to get creative works noticed online?

In the words of Mike: You have to choose one person to go to your birthday party and one person to die. Who do you pick?

Finally, you're trapped on a desert island (it has a small forest with unknown edibles) with the entire LRR Crew (Entire in this case meaning the original eight crew and anyone else who has joined you up until now). What methods would you use to survive? Also, in case of cannibalistic urges, who would you eat first?

Hello! Just a couple quick questions for your que:
What did you guys think about the Xbox One reveal and how lame do you think the name sounds?
When Strip Search eventually raps up in a month or two, are you guys planning on putting another show in place of it, or are you going to enjoy the lack of editing-nightmare for as long as possible?
How is the search for a cat-in-need-of-your-home going? I understand that lost/abandoned kitties keep on dropping themselves at Kathleens feet, do you at all think that this may be a sign?

Also, CONGRATS ON 500!!!

At the Strip Search Panel at PAX East, Graham was asked about whether there were moments when it was tough having to be impartial, and you seem to hint that there was a particular moment that was tough for you. Has that moment "happened" yet?

Holy crap, I caught one of these when it's open.

Since everyone but me liked the reboot of Star Trek, what did the crew think of the latest one (Star Trek Into Darkness)?

Since there's no more LRRcast contests, how will new forum users gain forum ranks? Is this just a relic of a bygone era?

Any luck on telling other people about your other series? Perhaps ending episodes with anarchic crossovers, a la the T-shirt ads (bring the Feed Dump to the Checkpoint desk for one ep, etc. Stuff like that.)

What's the last TV series you've watched on DVD or other rental service that wasn't concurrent with it's television release? Mine was Stripperella.

Hey, long time askLRR, first time listener.

Who would win in a fight between Paul's eyebrows and Graham's beard?
Battle Royale but with magnificent facial hair.
