Bill Watt 1983-2016
Originally Published January 19th, 2016, 08:02 PM


We lost a great friend today. This morning, Bill Watt was released from his long fight with Huntington’s Disease.

Most of you weren’t aware that he had been suffering with this disease—the same that claimed the lives of his father and sister. He didn’t like to talk about it, so we generally kept the specifics vague, but Bill’s condition had been worsening for several years. Even so, his passing came as a surprise to us, and one we weren’t yet prepared for.

As Kate “Bill’s Mom” Watt has shared in her many Desert Bus stories, a lot of LRR’s early bonding happened in Bill’s basement during high school. Games of D&D with Bill guiding us through Temple of Elemental Evil, or just hanging out playing Goldeneye, our weekends were spent at Bill’s, sleeping poorly and eating horribly.


In LoadingReadyRun, Bill was part of the early cast—sometimes against his wishes—eventually becoming a key member of “The LRR Crew” following our live sketch show in the Victoria Fringe. A 6’11” redhead isn’t your typical sketch comedian, but Bill got more and more comfortable in front of a camera, and even after stepping back from LRR, continued to put up memorable driving shifts at Desert Buses 1-7. I know he’d want us to remind you of his perfect “0 Crashes” record at DB5.

Bill never wanted us to treat him any differently, he didn’t want to be remembered as a man fighting Huntington’s. So we won’t—we will remember Bill as the hilarious, clumsy, stubborn asshole we’ve always loved. We miss him.

News Post: Unhelpful-ism
Originally Published January 13th, 2016, 12:12 PM

Tycho: I’m sort of slowly easing my way through That Dragon, Cancer, both because that’s the only way to do it for me probably, and also because I spent a bunch of yesterday at an actual hospital myself, doing some deliveries for Child’s Play.  The combination of these two things made for a pretty brutal day. We had a cart of different bags for the floor we were on, with a list of patients and their room numbers, and as I looked over the first of the two sheets it became clear that none of the kids on that list were older than a year.  Two months.  Four…

Charlie Hebdo, One Year On
Originally Published January 12th, 2016, 06:37 PM

It’s been just over a year since the Charlie Hebdo murders, and I thought it was time to do a little more than simply defy, although I do love that that was Ken’s way of commemorating the date.

On January 7, 2015, a group of lowlives attacked the offices of a satirical magazine for no other reason than they disliked its sense of humor. They believed that their religion trumped anyone's right to mock it. They believed that their umbrage meant that they had the right to take the lives of those who worked there.

And therein proved that their interpretation of their religion was entirely, utterly, without merit, and worthy of being mocked. And today, they still don't get it, do they?

Meanwhile, these pieces of trash continue to use violence to suppress humor. Texas, and to a much deeper extent, in Bangladesh. We can not give them what they want. We must continue to mock them, and not let a year simply calm us down and let us move on. The mockery must continue.

I do not single out Islam as worthy of disdain and mockery. I feel that way about all Abrahamic religions. They all trace their roots to an event where a guy's imaginary friend told him to kill his son, and he said "sure, sounds legit!" Then, the imaginary friend said, "just kidding, just cut off a piece of his dick to show me that you love me." He still says "sounds legit!" What the fuck else can you expect but madness after that?

I would likely feel that way about all other religions, if I learned enough about them. If you want to practice your religion, by all means, go right ahead. You can believe in a flying spaghetti monster, or a zombie Jesus, or anything else you like.

And dammit, I have the right to mock you for it.

I don't have that right because I am right. I may be dead wrong. I fully accept that if I ever die, I could be called before some supreme being who will be utterly fucking pissed at me — and if he exists, he damn well should be.

Because I mock him. I mock his followers. I mock lots of things.

As we should be able to.

Does that bother you?

Are your beliefs so fragile, so meaningless, so utterly without merit, that they cannot stand in opposition to mine?

If a “prophet” is so weak that you commit acts of violence against other people because they mock him, then your prophet is not worthy of any respect at all — let alone immunity from mockery.

If your God or your prophet can not take being mocked, then fuck your god and fuck your prophet.

I do not use the term "hero" loosely. But, Charlie Hebdo was bombed before January 7, 2015. Those who worked there knew the risks. They accepted them. And on that day, 12 of them died because they believed in something far more important than any fairy tale.

They believed in freedom of expression.

"Hero" is the right word to describe all of them.

We are only the sum of our thoughts. If the powerful or the fanatical can stop us from expressing them through coercion or violence, we are less human. We all achieve less for being here for the brief time that we get to exist on this rock.

When we got attacked on 9/11, we responded by changing who we were. We responded by curtailing our own liberties, all in the false name of "security."

Charlie Hebdo's editor-in-chief, Stephane Charbonnier once said: “I would prefer to die standing than to live on my knees.” A year ago, he died standing.

He died standing for something.

He died standing for freedom of expression.

The correct reaction to terrorism is to do exactly the opposite of what the terrorists want you to do.

I would not normally re-publish these pieces of art. I don't particularly care for them. But, if these terrorists wanted to take that right away from us by making us afraid, they have sorely failed in their attempt.

With that, I give you what these barbarians tried to take from us.

Fuck your prophet.

And Fuck you.

Je suis Charlie, et je me souviens.

Scott R. Kurtz: We got new Star Wars over the Christmas break and I haven't talked about it with you yet. So let's talk about it a little. Star Wars and nostalgia are conjoined twins. The Franchise and my childhood share the same heart. You can't seperate them and have both survive. The movie hit on the 18th and I didn't see it until the 24th because that was the soonest I could see it with my father and my brother in the same theatre. And it was worth the wait. Papa read spoilers ahead of time, he confessed. The reason why is that since
