Moving Day


Welcome. Come in. Have a seat. Can I get you anything? Water? Soda? Margarita? I'm just trying to unpack things here in the new place before my roommate arrives next week. Some of you may be shocked that we've both gone from living alone to moving into this place together, but the rent's cheaper when you share a space. Just as long as she doesn't steal all the hot water in the morning and keeps her hands off my Elf Fudge Cookies, I think we'll get along just fine.

We'll be splitting the responsibilities around here, so don't be surprised when you get very different opinions. But if you listen to our show (of course you do!) you should be use to our ways by now. The show will continue the same, every two weeks with actors galore. You like reviews? We've got reviews. Look for at least one from each of us every week. Are you a gamer, because we've got those too. Try your hand weekly at both the Mashup and the Sims Screenshot (sorry for lying to you about computer/game issues) for bragging rights on the leaderboards.

All that, with few bits of randomness, and this place will start to feel like home in no time. Feel free to look around and drop back in any time, especially tomorrow for a(nother) surprise.

Thanks for stopping by!

    3. PS. glad to see your new home. Just needs a couple css tweaks :P

    4. Fixed! I had set up this new page long before Blogger started allowing embedded comment replies, so when the post footer background is black, so are the boxes for the embedded replies. They need to make those two separate options. Thanks for the warning Andrew!

  2. Congrats on the new space, and on a very prolific five years! Love what you've done with the joint already, and looking forward to more changes that may come down the line.

    When many of the bogs started out there can't last five months, five years is quite an accomplishment - so here's to the past, and to the very bright future for all things RI.

    1. Thanks for all your support, Ryan! And for keeping our dirty little secret a secret.

  3. If this site is anything like your show, it'll be something special. Y'all always have been fantastic together on the podcast.

    Also, did you actually pack McAvoy in a box? Is that why he hasn't been in a film lately? For shame!

    1. Thank you, James! And we only let Mr. McAvoy out of captivity to do voice work. We're very selfish like that.

  4. Excellent news - what a cool and totally logical idea! The big question: IIE had a Twitter presence...does this mean that RI: The Site will have one as well?

    1. Yeah, we totally credit you and Kai in our next RI episode for bestowing this ingenious idea upon us.

      As for the Twitter thing...um, good question. I'll kick this one over to my partner. Jess?

    2. I was gonna say. ;)

      Honestly, it just makes sense. I don't know why more people don't do it.

    3. It's just gets too exhausting after awhile. Of course, I have to let go of some controlling Type A quirks, but I'm working on it :)

  5. In the process of setting it up. Should be sending post updates by this evening.

  6. Amazing move indeed! Dont forget to send me a plug when you're all setup!

  7. BTW does this mean Rachel's mom will be getting her on feature/column/whatever? It needs to happen... =)

    1. I second this! It needs to happen indeed. :P

    2. Hmmm...I don't know. We have a pretty strict membership around here ;)

  8. About time! I had always wondered why you two never joined forces outside of the podcast.

    Looking forward to all the great posts in the future!

    1. Thanks, Courtney! It's been a long time coming and if we hadn't both been so close to 5 years, it would've been much sooner.

  9. Awesome! I listen to the podcast (on and off; I'm a bad podcast listener in general), but I somehow always manage to forget your individual blog URLS. Now this is much easier. :)

    1. Thanks, Jandy! Whatever we can do to make it easier for our listeners/readers. And ourselves, of course.

    2. Great to know there are more listeners!

  10. My own feature or column? That's very flattering, guys, but I gave birth to Rachel & raised her by myself. Haven't I done enough?

    1. Yes, hasn't she unleashed enough destruction on this world?

    2. Monica, you're always welcome to crash our site. Or podcast. Or whatever else we end up doing. (Yes, I'm speaking for Rachel, haha).

  11. You two finally made the leap. We're proud of you.

    1. Ambiguity, thy name is Nick!

      (But thanks for the not-so-vague congrats!)

  13. Let's face it, we all know it would happen eventually. :)

    Having a blogging partner makes things so much easier and a lot more fun.

    1. That's what we're hoping for: twice the content and half the work!

      Delete
    2. I don't get how you'll double your content by working half as much love that equation tho!

    3. I suck at math, so it makes perfect sense to me!

  14. Awesomeness! I gotta admit, I was kinda pissed when Saturday Sims Screenshots got canned because of those 'computer issues'. If I ever get the chance to guess one of those things, I love it! And yeah, congrats!

    1. Sorry for all the lies, but Sims will be back this Saturday! And I will try to be more mindful of posting at random times on Saturday for our international players to have an equal chance of playing more often.

    2. The twitter notification will also help.
