6’ Tall, Brown Hair, Brown Eyes. Attractive, but only in the eyes of those who love me. I have a scar on my right hand from playing with a SIM tool remover and one on my left leg from a trampoline accident in 1995. This one time I saw a bear.

Hi! I’m Ashley; during the not Desert Bus times of year, I work as a paralegal for the Province of British Columbia. My interests are my fur baby Jade (aka Tiny Jerk), bugging James as much as possible and Ironman. Prep your voices, Africa is coming!

Turning on the camera for the very first Desert Bus and astonished people actually showed up to watch.

Let’s keep this ball rolling folks, James has another Donation Drive headed your way. As we creep past the halfway mark of James’ shift, we’re hoping to explode with excitement on this Minecraft Kickstarter lot. 0144_03_MinecraftKSLot


This entire lot can be yours for donations of only $7.77 or multiples thereof. We will run this donation drive until 3:30 PM PST.

Oh Minecraft, that amazing thing that happens when you take out almost all the elements of a game except for gathering materials and then putting it together to make some really cool stuff. Who knew it would be so addictive, those darned Creepers ensnaring adult and child alike in their green, pixelated grasp? So, in days of yore, when Minecraft was on Kickstarter, Notch and his crew put together some really spectacular backer rewards like a Wind-up creeper toy, perfect for tormenting cats, and a Pig Bank, for all your spare change since you aren’t leaving the house anymore to spend money, because you just need a bit more wood…

contains (from this campaign: 
– DVD signed by 2 Player Productions – $60 tier prize
– wind-up Creeper toy – $60 tier prize
– Poster signed by Notch – $250 tier prize
– Pig Bank – $500 tier prize

Pope James Under the Sea!

ft. Steven Universe

From Velázquez to Bacon, pontifical portraits are a great tradition in art! We thought we’d join in on the fun here at Desert Bus, and that brings us to our first ART CHALLENGE of DB9!


Our intrepid driver James is a man who wears many hats, sometimes literally! Today he put together this maritime mitre, and that is the inspiration behind the Art Challenge!

James would like you to create some art of him as POPE UNDER THE SEA! You can do that in any medium you like, but it should include his spectacular hat!…. and, per James’ special request, must ALSO include Steven Universe! How you want to work all that is up to you!

You have until 4pm to get your work in! To enter, email [email protected], use the subject line “Pope Under the Sea Contest” and make sure to include a name for us in case you win!

We’ll show off the top entries on the stream! The BEST entry wins this adorable, Huggable Sweetened Pig! And ALL entries will be posted on the blog for your viewing pleasure!

Interesting note: among the Pope’s many titles is “Pontifex Maximus,” Latin for “greatest bridge-builder,” which coincidentally also describes James’ overpass-creating superhero power!

James Turner

Driving: Friday, Nov 14 10am – 10pm

Driving since: 2007

Points: 25(!)

Crashes: 6

When not at Desert Bus, he can be found:
As the 6th most important member of LoadingReadyRun, James can be found honing his trombone tossing skills every Monday, Wednesday and Friday on

He also plays video games, installs window coverings and makes internet funny videos with his friends.

Special Skills:
My ability to drive the bus and not crash while partaking in any challenge, wether it be of the mind or body, is unmatched. I’ll sing (poorly) dance (with no sense of rhythm) and act (you’ve seen me act, it’s not good) while driving, and driving well.

He’s a total geek for:
I like Magic the Gathering. Playing MtG, Watching MtG, Reading about MtG, Streaming MtG, Talking about MtG, Going to MtG Events.

I like Magic.

Magic Magic Magic.

Claim to Fame:
With 99.9% certainty, I can say that I’ve played Desert Bus more than any other human being on earth.

Biggest fear about driving for DB8:
I no longer fear the Bus, the Bus fears me.

If he was reincarnated as a fruit or vegetable he would want to be:
Durian as it has a built in defence mechanism.

Favourite Cheese:

Doesn’t want you to know he listens to:
Taylor Swift

His “moves like Jagger” are more like:
Sad White Guy

To prepare for driving the bus he is:
Tossing trombones, jamming out to 1989, building my next MtG Commander deck all while slamming back the biggest brick of Blue Cheese you ever did see.

What symbol does your superhero cape have on it?
