It’s that time again! Time for the 9th annual Desert Bus for Hope video game marathon in support of Child’s Play. What is the Desert Bus for Hope, you ask? Well, you may have noticed that the LoadingReadyLive streaming schedule is looking a little sparse for the next week. That isn’t because we are slacking off, it is because, starting on Saturday we will be broadcasting 24 hours a day and playing the worst game ever made, Desert Bus. How long will we be doing that for? Well, that is up to you. We are raising money for the awesome charity, Child’s Play and the more money we raise, the longer we will go for! The first hour is only $1 and every additional hour cost 7% more than the one before. As of right now, we have already raised $4,498.58 and will be streaming for 85 hours!
The real fun part is that the Desert Bus game is so boring and terrible that we have to do other stuff to keep ourselves busy and to encourage people to watch and donate. We sing and dance, read stories, do skits, play games and generally do whatever you tell us to for almost a whole week. Even better, we have a ton of ridiculously amazing, one of a kind, prizes, giveaways and auction items for you to drool over and maybe even win for yourself!
We know you’re excitedly waiting for the September episode of the Loading Time Digest. Unfortunately, due to editor Ray having a difficult month, and there being a lot of footage, it’s been taking us longer than usual. Ray and Ian are both tag-teaming the edit, and we expect it to be out this week. We are not expecting October’s episode to be equally delayed.
Additionally, anyone waiting on their pre-order of the Smash Cut to Bleached-White Skeleton shirts, our huge apologies that they have been so delayed. We encountered production delays on both the shirts and the Smash the State stickers, which we certainly hadn’t expected. The shirts are printed—sitting at the warehouse—and the stickers should arrive any day. Once the stickers arrive, the warehouse is ready to start firing those shirts out to you. Sorry again for the delay!
Here at LoadingReadyRun, we believe comedy is serious business. No really, we do — we put that phrase on a business card and everything, so you know it’s true.
So in order to make sure we’re producing the kind of content you want to see on YouTube and Twitch, making merch you actually want to buy and just overall doing the best job we can do, we’re polling you!
