Loading Time filming
Daye04 asks: For Heather - how did it come to happen that you toook over the Loading Time filming duties when there was still a weekly sketch?
- Heather: Alex was filming most of Loading Time, but then he was in a sketch one week and the camera was constantly being handed back and forth. I was just hanging out, so I just picked up the camera so that he could do stuff. And after a little while he was in more stuff, so I took the camera because it was fun to run around and participate as opposed to feeling like (I was) being in the way.
EikoandMog asks: Any particular recommendations for someone who hasn't done serious reading since high school?
- Cori: Three Body Problem by Liu Cixin
- Heather: Didn't recommend anything
- Cam: Memory Called Empire by Arkady Martine

- Heather: 3DS
- Cam: iPhone (Twitter)

- Cori: Jokes - No. Serious - Sometimes shorts.
- Heather: Jokes - No. Serious - Yes, pajama pants.
- Cam: Jokes - No. Serious - Yes, you never know when someone is going to come to the door.
