Ways to X2Y

Postby Graham » 17 Nov 2009, 00:25

This was a lot of work (all the different people and locations) but so much fun to think of ways we've missed.
Enjoy!

Wow, great work guys. And yet, being new, for all I know, that was a clip show with some new footage. But who am I to complain, I still loved it.

Especially that last shot with Graham and Paul.

Additionally, Graham, why'd you move, you obviously have someone who wants to be your roommate. =P

Edit: totally unrelated, but I was eating some Ritz crackers when out of the box I pulled out a waste peice of the cookie cutting process.

So... so... so... so... so...

SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Makes up for the wait.

Christ, that was epic. This is truly shaping up to be the best season of LRR.

I still can't figure out which one of the clips was best. And I almost didn't think you guys were going to do a Sam Raimi.

Actually it's entirely new.
We just added a new "way" to each previous video.
Some of the early ones are totally not shot in widescreen, let alone HD.

Ah, so that's why Bill was filming.

Now, you guys gotta stop doing these looks back. You're starting to scare me. Most shows start doing looks back as they wind down. Nostalgia is fun, especially when you do new things with old ideas, and when it's as epic as this even better.

But, remember whens usually come at the end.

Ya, I'm starting to get scared that this may be the last season. Feels like they're trying to cover up all the loose ends.

Oh jesus, will you guys do anymore X ways to Y vids?

Well, I'd call 30 Minutes or Less more of a sequel than a "look back", but I see what you mean.
Still! What better time of year for a little fan-service than around Desert Bus?

Also: We're not stopping, I assure you.
We're not stopping X Ways to Y videos, we're stopping at all. If anything, we're hoping for quite the opposite.

I don't see it as an end, but more of a progression. Evolution. I thoroughly enjoy what they have done so far.

Ahh, that makes alot of sense. I should have realized. Don't blame me though, I've only been here a year!

Though, before I thought you guys had an incredible amount foresight, with the crosscutting between different XWays2Y. And that maybe you had wasted 2 bathtubfulls of coke. (I'm actually wondering what lying down in that stuff felt like...)

Also, while you broke the James always plays the cop rule(-ish type thing), I'm more interested how it is that, James could be hiding Pauls skeleton, when Paul-cop sees him and gives James a ticket...

*Note, I'm not pointing out a continuity error, but raising a continuity question.

Excellent work, and I truly hope that was a bathtub full of soda.

Good eye. Didn't think about that.

Also, you would be silly to think LRR would blow that much on soda. You only see them pour out half a can, they probably drank the other half.

Its probably just Morgan's dirty laundry marinating in there.

Wow.. Totally worth the extra wait time! The music hit the mark perfectly. And Graham, the pipe actually suits you and all, but I saw no monocle! This requires more monocle!

I think my favourite "ways" were Potato Gun, Job Interview, Horror Movie and Corrosion. Oh, and Recession. Screw it, all of it was epic.

And now, I shall depart to re-watch it~!

W-Wait, I have to ask.. Paul, how'd the bath of pure coke actually go? Extra sugary? :O And he must have a twin.. But who's the evil one? Paul-Paul or Paul-Cop? The look on Geoff's face was priceless too.

Let the Desert Bus commence... Soon!

Ways to Scare Your Fanbase will be up next, clearly.

Take up a hell of a lot of more profitable projects.
Be so busy that videos start showing up later.
Be so busy that podcasts start showing up later.
Don't let the big red guy in videos.
Crew members start moving out of shared apartments. (Morgan & Bill, Graham & Matt)
Tell everyone their favorite series is changing, but be vague.
Add a clone Matt to the crew, but inexplicably leave him off the about page. (I think they're planning to kill Matt.)
Reference old videos a lot more.

So, I think they've got it down.

(I don't mean to sound jaded, I did this for the lulz.)

We're not "not letting" Bill in videos, come on.
Also, we've been planning to update the about page for a while now, so the only reason there is laziness.
And cH wasn't everyone's favourite thing. Just saying. We liked it, sure, but not everyone did.

The rest of it, yeah, fair enough.
Although, LRR did fine before I lived with Matt, and shall continue to do well.

Come to think of it, this isnt the first time LRR has done call backs. There were a few in season 4 and 5.

Initial vagueness can do wonders. You cleared it up, yes, but for a couple hours some of us were pretty nervous about it. (And there was still a bit of discussion afterwards of people trying to figure things out.)

But like I said, for the lulz. Don't take me too seriously, if I thought anything on that list was a real issue, I'd have brought it up in an e-mail to see if there was anything that fans could do to help.
