January 24 2007 AskLRR
The following is the AskLRR portion of the Toilet Hyperchondriac LRRcast.
- Do you keep the awards you have won anywhere special like the "Vancouver Island Short Film Festival" trophies?
The only physical trophies they have are from the Vancouver Island Short Film Festival, and last year they got three. They gave Andy his for Best Performance, Graham has the one for People's Choice, and Paul has the one for writing. This year (2007), they won the award for Best Writing again for How to Talk like a Pirate, which is on their mantelpiece.
- Given the chance, what country would you travel to?
Graham: England (again), Australia, New Zealand, most of the Commonwealth Bill: the United States, specifically California, at the end of April, because "Rage Against the Machine is back together for one concert! I HAVE to go, I have to!" Morgan: Eastern Europe (i.e. Romania, Croatia) Jer: Korea (he has friends there) Paul: places in the Commonwealth, England, Switzerland, Germany James: Germany everyone: Japan, tropical places
- Which do you like more: A-Team, Knight Rider, or Air Wolf?
everyone: A-Team. Matt: Knight Rider. Wait, TEAM Knight Rider, from the horrible '90s spinoff series. Bill: Rage Against the Machine in California!
- How many roads must a man walk down, before you can call him a man?
Evidently none, because you just called him a man. The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind? Bill: I hear Rage Against the Machine does a cover of that song at the concert in California at the end of April! (Everyone agrees that would be an awesome cover.)
- Will we hear more Commodore 64 music in future videos?
Uh, yes. Bill says,"We'll try to get Rage Against the Machine to do some Commodore 64 music." Jer says there might be some covers of them in their Commodore 64 library.
- Are there any plans to have professional-quality music in future videos, like How to Talk Like a Pirate?
Sure, if we can and it warrants it, yeah.
- Will Andy ever be in the LRRcast?
Evidently not... It's entirely possible, but not in this one. Hopefully someday.
- Which WoW server do you guys play on?
Zuluhed. Bill: "No, I play on Rage Against the Machine now."
- Horde or Alliance?
They're all Horde. Matt says if you play for Alliance you're playing it wrong, and Morgan adds if you play for Alliance you play for Hitler.
Dr Frankenjam asks:
- Where are my car keys?
Where you left them? They're going to be in the last place you look. Tom Morello may have them. They could be in California at the end of April underneath the stage where Rage Against the Machine are going to be playing. If you check the archives, they have a lesser god you can pray to (in reference to the [[Guide to Lesser Gods of Innocous Household Things]] video). Try the door of the car.
- What was it like doing the interview with GEE?
GEE Magazine is the Games, Entertainment, and Education Magazine, which is a German video game magazine. Jer wants to clarify that they were not speaking German during the interview. They did an interview with 64K when the 1337 video became popular online. Doing the interview was a lot like reading text in an email and then writing down text in a return email and then seeing the interview in the magazine translated into German, which was pretty funny. A lot of their answers were not actually printed due to space concerns. Morgan had said that he really liked DotA, and they turned that into Warcraft 3.
- Dear Graham, did you buy Gibb or was he a gift? Also, how long have you had him? Sincerely, Tanais.
Graham actually bought him at a toy shop downtown. He looked at him from the window and Graham thought,"Wow, that guy looks pretty funny" and bought him. He has had him for a couple of years, almost since the site started. He figured that they needed a puppet.
- On the Itchy and Scratchy CD-ROM is there any way to get out of the dungeon without using the wizard's key?
- Did you guys catch Rocky Balboa?
No, but we've been meaning to.
- How much money do you guys usually spend on a video (if any)? Which one was your most "expensive"?
If we were to take the most frequent amount of money spent on any video, the number that pops up the most is zero. Well, no, a tape costs between $5 and $10, depending on what type of deal you get. Most expensive is probably Pimp My Chair. The LoadingReadyRumble is complex, but we had most of that stuff lying around from LoadingReadyLive. Live was the most expensive thing we've done, but in terms of video the most expensive is probably Pimp My Chair (Morgan spent about $130 in total on the chair). Also we had to pay for those Northwest Customs T-shirts.
