That was amazing! The crew looks so different with all the missing body hair now. Also, shout out to Rosco P. Jangles IV!

Okay, I know that Kroze has a lot of songs recorded.

Where can we download the songs that you guys sang during Desert Bus?

And will you have a downloadable version of this song?
I can't think of a signature.

That was EPIC! Maybe not quite as epic as Desert Bus itself as it is a little hard for a video a little under four minutes to be as epic as a fundraiser that lasted more than five days and raised seventh thousand dollars. To most of the week doing Desert Bus then to come up with that on short notice, that my friends is the genius of LoadingReadyRun.

Not that I will say any thing bad about a LRR video I make a brief appearance in.

Yep, Rosco is the <swear>. I personally feel awesomer just standing near him.

Pretty sure that song will be lodged in my head for the rest of all time...

Desert Bus nearly killed LRR, heh.

Now I know why Matt was searching for that Don't Stop Believing video. Props for great writing!

This was so good. I even caught myself applauding parts of it. Definitely worth waiting 6 days. And you did this all in a day?? Spectacular. Wow.

I don't understand some of the vocal effects. I presume it's intentional but it sounds weird when switching from nice clarity to muffled. I'll have to find the original vid & compare.

Wonderful job guys & gals. It just didn't feel right until we had an official wrap-up from the LRR crew. Now if only someone can reveal what happened after the Driver Cam went out while they were in the middle of singing Wheels on the Bus.

Welcome to the most requested song of Desert Bus 3!!




Wait! . . . . The line "We're tired as swear" didn't match the lip-synch.

I've steadily got more and more addicted to this song... damn you, guys! :)

Also, I notice you swapped Jer for a Jer-maine Clement clone. I nearly missed it, you sneaky devils, you!

Ok, I (obviously) don't post here much, but I just needed to say that video is awesome and well worth the wait.

Thanks for a great week of entertainment, and doing a great job raising money for the children.

Awesome video, but won't you get problems with intelectual property rights? I mean after all VCR is a trademark of Philips.

wow, i watched Desert Bus as often as possible from Saturday Morning, and I'm glad you guys did a video with Desert Bus, did it end up totaling over 70,000 or were you just rounding up for the video?

Welcome to the forums, Tally. I'm sure you'll find there's a lot of cool people here & that LRR is pretty much pure awesome. Check out their videos if you haven't already. ^_~

VCR failure

Postby Casandro » 07 Dec 2008, 03:02

Well I guess the problem with the VCR migth be a dried out capacitor. It should be cheap to repair.

For a last minute throw-together, this sure was an awesome video.

To the LRR crew and everyone who donated: Keep on kicking ass.

I regret being out of town, sans interwebs, and unable to watch the shenanigans now more than ever.
There are things in this world that I dislike. One of the things I dislike the most is a serious argument, well constructed, delivered by someone who makes themselves difficult to respect.

It was actually some sort of loose connection on the inside of the RCA video jack. We didn't have time to fix it, so we just switched VCRs mid-stream and crashed the bus doing so.

Ahh, OK, that can happen, too. Even cheaper to fix.
