But if I'm reading the forums, then I can't watch the feed and read the chat and check desertbus.org at the same time! I either need more monitors, or better multitasking skills, or both.

Man it feels straight up weird not having my favorite internet people to keep me up tonight.

Extra thanks to Graham for reading my thank you letter at the end, that made my year.

As they have been for the last four years, this Desert Bus was awesome! Thanks to everyone who donated, helped out and watched!

My first Desert Bus, and what an experience. Thanks so much for a wonderful time! [For the Children!]

Man, after almost a solid week, its weird to suddenly not have Desert Bus-related shenanigans around for me to tune into!

This year's events were just outright awesome in every way. Not only did you guys put on a wildly entertaining show, you also did some kickbus fund raising all around. And of course, massive kudos go to all the people that helped gather up such an astronomicaly high amount of donations!

Good show, ladies and gents, and I can't wait for next year's festivities!

So, I missed the end of this having been ushured home by Abraham Lincoln, so I wanna say a heartfelt congratulations and good job to everyone involved.

Especially my good buddy Snowfire; troll extraordinaire.

Indeed, buddy, and your print is on it's way as soon as I can get it printed!
I'm taking the rest of this day off so this wild and crazy week can ride, and getting working, cleaning, and back to gym tomorrow.

oh my god, made of awesome.

This was my first Desert Bus and besides the unfortunate confusion that was cause I will definitely be back next year. Great job LRR you have made a fan for life.

He's a troll with a heart of gold.

By which I mean literally he's replaced his heart with gold. Rich ass-bastard.

I can only drink non-carbonated wated, the carbonated water just has an awful taste.

Just woke up after a rather long sleep post DB(ended at 10am my time).

Simply amazing effort. I feel a bit empty now that it's over but look forward to next year and a whole bunch of videos on the way.

Ian and Cori were great! so good to know they're back for next year. Also a big fan of the girl with the short dark hair who was encouraging the slashfic late on the last night, somehow the only person in the moonbase whose name I managed to miss every time it was said apparently(and I felt kind of bad asking on chat 'Hey I've been watching you for days and you rock but uh, what's your name?').

Hopefully I'll be around this forum a fair bit this year as well, good luck to all the viewers and 'bussers for a good year.

I believe that was Kim (short hair and red coat). I've met her once in 2009. She's funny too. Not sure if she has an alias on this forum.

Same here and feeling the same withdrawal wanting to open the feed right away but knowing I'll have to wait for the next LRR video instead. I miss Alex being around here in Toronto.

Sadly, I only got to see the first few days of play due to a severe lack of internet connection during the week. I may not have been around for so most of it, or even to see it end, but I like to think I was there in spirit.

Yeah, Kim's on here as Interruptor Jones, but I'm not sure she posts much any more...

I'm missing the Bus too. :(

I'm so glad that caught so much of it this year, though. I can't remember much of last year's. :( I stayed up Friday through Saturday night, then Monday morning through Tuesday night and then Wednesday morning to just after the end of Desert Bus, with a few two or three hour long naps here and there, and surprisingly I'm not too bad for it.

SO MUCH awesome stuff happened, SO MANY hilarious memes, SUCH a good time. I really want to thank the crew for making this incredible thing happen, year after year. I want to be there next year to help out in person; mining in the prize-mines, singing and dancing, and crafting things to auction. :D

Thanks! good to know. Unsure if she wore a red coat at some point as clothes have kinda turned into a blur. The person I'm talking about had an olive t-shirt on right at the end(the only reason I remember that much is I watched the final busdown video posted elsewhere on the forum a couple of hours ago). I'm sure you have it right anyway.


She's funny too.


Well of course she is! that's why I'm a fan. I save my internet-pervey fandom for Morgan.

If any of the on-screen guests have websites, video series, and/or podcasts of their own, could somebody please post links here? A lot of LRR's friends were really funny during the event, so if they publish their own comedy material I'd like to check it out.

The Netherlands has one of the best filtered tap water in the world, it's actually better than every single mineral water/club soda you can buy in a store.

I feel sorry for LRR having so much shipping to do all the time and the inferior Canada Post. I ordered something from Alex ages ago and there were multiple attempts I think...still no signs of package so I feel like with that much shipping to do it must be an enormous headache even if most of it reaches it's destination. :|

So what you need to be an extraordinary troll you need to not troll? What? Is that meta-trolling or something?
