I heard they were kickstarting getting Grahams butt tattooed on Pauls butt, Pauls Butt tattooed on James butt, James Butt tattooed on Kathleens butt, and Kathleens butt tattooed on Grahams butt.

My genuine prediction: Loading Ready Run the TV show, either as Commodore Hustle or a half hour sketch show.

OK, decision time. It is currently 1835 hours BST. My parents have requested I be up at 0000 hours tomorrow to drive them back from a party. The livestream takes place at 0300 hours my time, will probably finish at around 0430 hours and I must be getting up at around 1115 hours at the latest due to refereeing commitments (which I must obviously be reasonably refreshed for) later in the day. So, do I watch the livestream at that ungodly hour, accept that I will be tired later and attempt to power through it, or give in to weakness, go to bed at around 0030 hours tomorrow and catch up at a later time?

This is honestly the hardest decision I've had to make all summer.

I probably won't get to see it live, which is sad. I'd just finished arranging a D&D session tonight when the announcement came up, and due to scheduling conflicts, I won't be able to move it earlier or later. The question is, do I try to remain unspoiled and watch the stream tomorrow morning, or just hope it's still running when I get home at 8:30 and try to catch up... hmm.

My approach will be to get two hours of sleep, then wake up in time for the livestream, then go back to sleep afterwards. There's the potential to have your cake and eat it.

So, for anyone wondering- this is why I was crying after the PAX panel. Now you know. :/
Now I'm gonna go be suitably sad as I just backed the last season of comedy that kept me going many times.

I still love LRR and hope you do great things in the future, but really - if I hadn't found the weekly sketches 4 years ago, I might not be alive now. So, best wishes, and make sure someone throws my tennis ball extra hard.

I share in your mixed feelings, but then again, the way I see it the sketches aren't going away, just slowing down and becoming irregular. To be honest, the best reason I have to support this is that I trust LRR, so trust them when they say this will be for the best.

It's still sad though.

I also have extremely mixed feelings about this, leaning towards sadness. I'm gonna contribute somehow, but I'm just very, very sad right now.

Trisha, this isnt the end of Loading Ready Run, this isnt the end of their sketches. This is just a strong fond farewell to the "we have to do this every week" that they have been doing for 10 years.

I have a feeling that, but no conformation of, (inside knowledge about, or in any way have heard anything) they will still do some type of LRR style sketch like once a month 10-12 times a year ish, just because they have been doing it for so long, and they love doing sketches. Once again I am simply speculating with no knowledge of anything.

Lord Hosk you mad bastard.

I can't wait to hear what you have planned for those shirts.

And yeah, I'm pretty sad too. I know we're kickstarting 52 more sketches, but it still can't help but feel like we're funding the end of Loading Ready Run. That's not happy. :(

Im sad about this news for multiple reasons. Mainly because I'm not in a position financially to back this. I might be able to give $10 max. I really hope this gets funded :(
