Early in 2003 two guys named Graham and Paul figured making a website where they could show off some of their videos would be a good idea. Several months later, when they remembered the idea, they started work on it. After a couple design concepts, they settled on LoadingReadyRun, inspired in name and appearance by the Commodore 64 home computer system from the '80s. See, they're also big geeks. More than just showing off their few previous works, Graham and Paul decided to make new videos. Lots of new videos. Like, one every week. As well as being big geeks, they also make very poor and ambitious decisions.

More than eight years later Graham and Paul with their friends make four weekly series: CheckPoint for Penny Arcade Television, Unskippable and Feed Dump for The Escapist, and the weekly LoadingReadyRun video which is distributed by The Escapist. In addition LoadingReadyRun produces videocasts known as LRRcasts, behind the scenes and bonus content, Graham & Paul Let's Play, and a monthly series for Wizards of the Coast called Friday Nights. Each year LoadingReadingRun runs Desert Bus for Hope, a fundraiser for Child's Play which is the oldest and most successful video game marathon. Previously LoadingReadyRun also produced The Whatever Thing, the Iron Stomach Challenge, Escapist News Network, Phailhaüs, Daily Drop and Strip Search.

Featured Article - Skeletor's Dick

360.jpg

Skeletor's Dick is a Season 5 update featuring Bag Fries, a band with Geoff Howe and Patrick Donison. The song sings about the trauma that witnessing Skeletor's penis has caused. It was inspired by a full frontal nude scene in Lolita by Frank Langella (who played Skeletor in Masters of the Universe). Morgan plays Skeletor in the video (with a different skull mask than Derek from the Warriors of Darkness wears. Skeletor's Dick was a highly anticipated project by the crew, but was met with a mixed reception by fans. Most loved the song and video, but some thought the humor was low-brow. The video was preceded by a T-shirt ad featuring Graham reporting live from inside a LRR T-shirt when posted to Revver, but this was removed when it was crossposted to Blip.
