Q: How much longer will the original cast members of LRR live close enough to continue to

  appear in videos?

A:

  The only person in the perceivable future is Matt. He might be moving to 
  Vancouver, but the rest should be stuck at the University of Victoria for a  
  while.

Q: What are your personal favorite videos?

  Bill: Tennis
  Jer : 30 Minutes or Less, Those Games We Played, 
  The Professor's Funhouse

  Suspend your Disbelief
  Paul: Who Watches Movies?, Pachinima

  Small Time, Small Time 2, The Raps (ex. 1337), Vietnam

Q: Is Morgan actually gay?

A:

  No....

Q: How long does LRR plan to keep making videos?

A:

  How long do you plan to keep watching? We'll go until we stop... If it stops
  becoming fun and starts becoming work we don't like then we will, obviously,  
  stop.

Q: If the site popularity continues to increase what changes will we see?

A:

  A larger bandwidth budget. (Our goal is to sell out.) If we can get paid and 
  continue to keep doing what we're doing then we will keep doing it. We plan to
  not shove huge ads down your throat, we might put up something we support and we
  will make sure it's something we can live with as much as everyone else. We will
  not design a site that is annoying for us to go to. If popularity continues to a
  point where we can put aside reality to do this then production value will 
  increase, the amount of updates may also increase.

Q: Whatever happened with the game reviewing gig?

A:

  We graduated from high school. We're still shooting them and the site that is 
  hosting them will go live in January.

Q: Is Paul's hand ok?

A:

  Sort of, on the Wii launch day I injured my hand by partially severing the tendon in the
  middle finger of my right hand. (I smashed it into a lamp while playing Wii)For two weeks
  it was in a cast, now that's off and it's now in a splint for three weeks. This has
  limited my video game play and decreased my productivity at work.

Q: Why is Bill so tall?

A:

  Gamma Rays!

Q: What happened to LoadingReadyLabs?

A:

  Gamma Rays, or the same thing that's happened to X ways to Y, we just haven't 
  done one for a while. Often ideas can fit into either a LRL or X ways to Y 
  category. You could consider How to Talk like a Pirate a LoadingReadyLabs 
  video, cause that's basically what it is.

Q: When is the Klingon video coming out?

A:

  Not soon, we don't actually know Klingon. Although Morgan does have a copy of 
  the Klingon-English dictionary, as does Matt. The whole idea of the series was 
  that it was new, and we can't really reuse the joke.

Q: Why isn't Ash in any movies or making any comics?

A:

  Because she's super busy, she doesn't have access to a scanner to upload comics.
  She has different friends and is very busy.

Q: Is Graham still going to UVic?

A:

  I have one class this semester because I have a full time job doing video, and I
  will stay there as long as they will pay me, because it is a start up company 
  and I want to make money, making video, while the opportunity is available. 
  Haven't graduated yet.

Q: What do/did the LRR crew take in postsecondary?

A:

  Graham will have a degree in visual arts, focusing in film and video with a
  minor in film studies (useless), Kathleen has an equally useless joint major
  in political science international studies. Jer is working on an English major 
  with a minor in religious studies. Paul has been out of school for several 
  years but has a diploma in information technology and applied systems with a
  specialization in digital media technology. James has been in and out of school
  usually taking general studies in history. Bill is doing psychology and 
  philosophy, Morgan is doing psychology and business (both not in school). 
  Matt is almost done with his degree in psychology and is then getting a business 
  degree.

Q: No seriously, is The Whatever Thing on a variable schedule so the site can reap the benefits of variable reinforcement?

A:

  Now, if by variable schedule you mean on the other end of the week to the normal
  video, then yes. If by variable schedule you mean by not on the same day every 
  week so that you have to come back every day looking for it, you can blame 
  Morgan, 100% Morgan. He's lazy. It was originally named centered around 
  Monday, but thankfully we changed the name so that it wasn't tied to one day.

Q: Are you guys close to having enough money to purchase a boom mike?

A:

  We have the money, Amazon.ca doesn't carry it. Amazon.com won't ship it to 
  Canada and Ebay requires a confirmed address which I don't know how to do. So 
  soon, really soon.

Q: What topics and subjects will always be off limits for LRR's videos?

A:

  Water sports, people peeing on each other, pr0n. Any normal thing you wouldn't  
  want to do, at least seriously. But anything is fair game to make fun of. 
  Anything that makes us uncomfortable (male frontal nudity) will probably never 
  show up. It's the difference between offensive comedy and doing something 
  offensive. We don't do mean stuff to innocent people. We don't do shock humor 
  because it's not the feel we want for our site.

Q: Does the crew have any plans for a big video spectacular? About an hour long?

A:

  No, it could happen, but not in the near future.

Q: What's the most difficult video you have shot and why?

A:

  I'd say the The LoadingReadyRumblebecause it was time consuming, it was shot
  for 1 hour a day for basically a week, working in the last hour of light after 
  work. Those Games We Played was also difficult as it involved lots of   
  different nighttime shots but the shooting went smoothly. It was also harder 
  because it followed the rumble.

Q: Were you all high school drama kids?

A:

  Graham was a bit. He was a techy turned actor. Jer had a small amount of
  drama experience in high school and a bit in elementary school but he was not 
  one of those people hanging outside the theatre all the time in our little
  clique. We were friends with the techies. Paul and Graham were the heads
  of the video club for their respective schools. Paul was in choir in middle 
  school and sang backup for David Foster and Celine Dion. Bill and Jer 
  and Paul were in band. Bill had one line in an elementary school play, 
  and Paul was a munchkin in his elementary school play.

Q: When will season 3 DVDs be available?

A:

  We're having some trouble with them, we ran out of stock of seasons 1+2 and are 
  trying to change distributors, but things have gotten lost and we're hoping 
  they'll be out by the end of the year.

Q: What did you guys do in everyday life and movie making before LRR was made?

A:

  Post secondary school/work. We didn't do a lot of things, we played video 
  games... as we do now and for the rest, we can't really remember. Hung out, 
  watched TV? Graham and Paul made some videos, but really we didn't do 
  all that much.

Q: Shouldn't this thread be in the LRRcasts Board?

A:

  Yes, and it will be soon.

Q: What is the music that accompanies the X Ways to Y video?

A:

  Bill and Morgan and I (Graham) were over at my house and Morgan 
  was searching for music online, because he didn't have his own computer at that 
  point. He was using Limewire on my computer trying to find random music so he 
  was listening to Bill and I talk and using keywords from that to search for 
  music. So Bill said "Fap, fap, fap" and Morgan typed that in and got one
  result that was Fappe un Petit Battement, which I've recently found out is a 
  ballet move and that music, I believe, is from a CD of random ballet practice 
  music. And we'll hopefully never get sued for it.

Q: Are you always that funny or are there times where you have to work hard on that?

A:

  We're pretty much always that funny, next. We have had writer's block, but when 
  we get an idea it usually all falls into place. The LRRcast is like us in real 
  life.

Q: A few podcasts ago you were talking about old Lucas Arts games, "Full Throttle" in particular, did any of you ever play "The Dig"? I grew up playing graphic adventures and I would say this is the best from the golden era.

A:

  Paul: Interesting, when I finished playing "Full Throttle" I was looking for
  other ones to play and "The Dig" actually came up. Then I read a bunch of 
  reviews that said it was "poopy", so I was like "Ahh, I don't want to play that".
  So maybe I'll have to check that out. And no one else had played it either.

Q: What happened to the outline door from The Bet?

A:

  That was a post effect. We used Photoshop to combine a picture of the door open,
  closed and with me in it. Then I combined the pictures together.
