Formerly known as LRR's "Foreign Correspondent," Alex Steacy grew up in Victoria, B.C., and attended Oak Bay High School, where he met Graham, and the men who would later form LoadingReadyRun. Known for his editing skills and soundwork, he has helped with some of LRR's early videos, and made the bonus videos While Wii Were Waiting and Extreme Battle Challenge working long-distance from his then-home of Toronto. He also designed the sound for the ninja fight in The Return of The Bill.
On October 18th, 2008, he held a special 3 1/2-hour long Ask An Alex Live for fans who were unable to attend the 5th Anniversary Screening when the crew were not able to get a live feed working. Ask An Alex Live became a weekly feature. It first premiered on Saturdays at 8:00 PM EST, 5:00 PM PST. It next played at 6:00PM EST, 3:00 PM PST, and finally aired Fridays immediately after Inside the Moon. He also hosts more sporadically-scheduled broadcasts such as Let's Play (Watching Alex play various video games, such as Penumbra and S.T.A.L.K.E.R.) and The Grill (Watching Alex and friends watch terrible movies, such as Dragonball Evolution and Twilight). Ask An Alex Live has gone on hiatus.
He has since returned to Victoria and is now a full-fledged member of the LRR crew. He writes the comic Cacti and made shazbot (on hiatus). His latest comic is The Tower. Most recently, he has revived the microshort spinoff series Crapshots. He also hosts Corrector's Commentary with Cam.
He runs the website Eximworks.
- Alex is the oldest official member of the LRR crew.
- Alex's former Victoria B.C house basement was the gathering place for parties and such for the LRR crew and was seen in the video Ways to Make Someone Leave a Room, and was even shown on Weird Homes in 2001.
- Made the infamous action figure movie "Leon's Grate Adventule" and its sequel; a favorite within the confines of the LRR crew.
- Starred as an extra in the Canadian horror film Meat Market 2
- He is the foremost authority on herping and derping.
- While he does like to sort Magic: The Gathering cards, he doesn't like to do it all the time, like how a druggies have to come down every once and a while so getting high is still special.
- Although he is an official crew member, he doesn't have the forum rank "LRR Crew" held by Matt, James, Jer, Kathleen, and even Bill and Morgan, who have for some time been classified as Contributors (Graham and Paul, of course, are "Super Moderators").
- During Desert Bus for Hope 6, Alex showed great focus and dedication to score two points during his shift, without crashing once. He repeated the feat during Desert Bus for Hope 8.
- Is a skeleton racist.
