AskLRR Answers

Q: Name your favorite book and your reason why other people should read it.

A:

  Name your favorite is very hard, we have lots of things we kinda like in
  specific topics. We will answer our favorite book that we have read recently.
  Graham: I haven't read an actual novel in a while, but I'm a big fan 
  of Terry Pratchett, I really like "Small Gods" I convinced my grade twelve 
  English teacher to let me do my book report on it. The most recent one of 
  his I've read that I thought was really, really good was "Night Watch", 
  just because that was a really great book. In terms of not a novel 
  I read the Lonely Planet Guide on Micronations and it was hilarious. 
  It's an actual Lonely Planet Guide like a tour guide, written like every 
  other Lonely Planet Guide, put in the humor section because it's written 
  on the self proclaimed "Kingdom of Steve" you know like some guy takes his
  field and says "I'm a nation...". 
  Also "Good Omens" by Neil Gaiman, read that book.
  Matt: A book from my childhood I've always had a fondness for was 
  "The Phantom Tollbooth".
  Bill(Spoiler Warning): I read a WWII book that's written from the German point 
  of view, but you don't know till way later on 
  "All Quiet on the Western Front". I also read "The Da Vinci Code" which 
  I expected to be like "Harry Potter" you know kinda entertaining but you 
  know, but I actually found it to be well researched and enjoyable and well
  written. While the research isn't conclusive all and the BOOK IS FICTION
  (Theres a slight debate about the the validity of Nosticism and the Bible),
  don't like go to all these famous religious places and go "Ohh I see now". 
  I really liked "Snow Crash" by Neal Stephenson (which Graham thinks would make
  a good movie) which is very visual because it was intended as a graphic novel.
  I also tried to get through "Art of War" by Sun Tzu and liked "The Myth of The Good
  Corporate Citizen" [by Murray Dobbin], it's about how all the big corporations work and
  it's written by a Canadian from a Canadian perspective. It talks about how they
  make their money and what they do to externalize their costs and how this effects the
  country they live in, the difference between transnational 
  corporations and non-transnational corporations. So if you want to know 
  how business works and how business really works, read the book.
  Paul: I recommend basically everything written by Neal Stephenson except "The 
  Baroque Cycle" which is just too big and too slow and too wordy. The book I read
  recently that I really like is "Rainbows End" by Vernor Vinge that's set like 50 years
  in the future and really made me think more than any other book like, "Wow this
  is what our future will be like". It seems like it's 50 years ahead of
  Star Trek instead of 50 years ahead of where we are now, in that it isn't
  basically just like now but with better computers and robots instead of
  slaves..... or something.
  Jer: For books that I've read recently that I liked I've read "Smoke and
  Mirrors" by Neil Gaiman which is a collection of his short stories. I like
  it because he's trying a bunch of different things over a long period of
  time, even when he was writing for "Playboy" and if you don't like something
  he tries it's gone in a couple of pages anyways. I love the book "Morality
  Play" by Barry Unsworth, if you're interested in Medieval Times or anything
  like that it's a good murder mystery story set in the Dark Ages that involves
  a lot of theatre. I'm excited this semester because I will be taking the
  second class during University that requires me to read "Dracula" so I'm 
  looking forward to reading that for the fourth or fifth time.

Q: What are your favorite seasonings? (Reminder: Please keep the forum posts to questions only)

A:

  Graham: Salt?
  Matt: Vanilla
  Paul: Oregano
  Jer: Garlic
  Bill: Nutmeg (because it can kill you)
  

Q: Is Three PS3s the sleeper How to Talk like a Pirate?

A:

  Not really, but if by that you mean that it's a very popular video, then yes. It's 
  been linked by a bunch of places, many of which believe that we're serious. 
  It's funny there's been a lot of people who've said hurtful things about 
  Paul in a bunch of online forums, there was even someone today who joined 
  the discussion thread to bash the video without realizing that we're a 
  comedy site. We need to pull a Jay and Silent Bob on these people.

Q: Why is Morgan so popular? Why doesn't the rest of the cast get any love?

A:

  Because you keep paying attention to him. It's your fault. If you ignore 
  him, he'll go away. One of the reasons is that Morgan has a lot more time 
  in his day to devote to talking to you guys. He will add a lot of people 
  from the forums to his msn because he has less to do at his job and 
  is more approachable on msn.

Q: What are your favorite movies?

A:

  Children of Men (awesome), Borat?

Q: The suits you wear in your videos are really nice. Can I borrow one?

A:

  No dark_realm, you live in Australia, so sorry.

Q: Who's living with whom, when did that start, and who were you living with before?

A:

  Graham lives with Bill and Morgan, everyone else lives with themselves and 
  other people. James lives with his girlfriend and Adam and Ben. Graham was 
  living at home before this, Matt is still living at home, Bill was living 
  with Ash... Bill's lived with a lot of people over the years and everywhere
  he lives tends to get nicknamed "Bill's Place".

Q: How long have Graham and Kathleen been together?

A:

  Over two years now.

Q: How did you guys discover Random Acts?

A:

  They talked to us, actually when the site was still very small Paul went to 
  the Yahoo directory for Sketch Comedy and sent emails to all of the sites he
  could, and they are the only ones who responded. I feel bad that Token White
  People isn't up on the site right now, I [Paul] was going to put them up but
  then I hurt my hand, and I have various other excuses, but it will be up soon.


Q: Have any of you ever considered living in the US or the UK, basically somewhere that isn't Canada?

A:

  The basic sentiment is that people like the UK and the US and wouldn't mind 
  moving there for a bit or visiting there but like Victoria more. Matt will
  probably either be kicked out of Canada by the other Canadians or leave to 
  be a Press Rep. for Microsoft in the US so he can acquire his vast fortune.

Q: Who has traveled outside of Canada and where?

A:

  Graham has been to the UK lots and all down the Western Seaboard of the US 
  down to California and over to like Washington. Paul has been all the way 
  down the states over to LA, Las Vegas and Texas, Bill has been throughout 
  the United States, Jer has been to France and traveled throughout Paris 
  and the south of France, he also had a one hour layaway in Copenhagen and 
  Matt has been all over North America and spent two weeks in China in grade seven.

Q: Does Morgan add anyone who isn't a hot girl on the LRR Myspace?

A:

  He did add Lavos, but he did search everything he could think of and add all
  the hot girls he could find. The search went Victoria, then Canada, 
  and then porn stars.

Q: Sims 2 or The Movies?

A:

Q: If you guys never met each other, besides Graham and Paul, is there a possibility the site would still be up?

A:

  If it was just Graham and Paul it would have still been made because they

  two of them in large mustaches yelling at each other in foreign languages. 
  The site wouldn't be what it is without all the help.
