Yeah, not going to lie. The reason this is late is because I’m a lazy bastard who would rather play Bastion then finish editing a 90 minute podcast. This was supposed to go up on Friday night…then it got bumped to Saturday. Then Sunday. Then Monday. At least this thing is finally up and I’m done with my mid-terms. This podcast was recorded before DC officially revealed their new logo, so our discussion treats it as mainly a rumour. Also expect bitching about the non-rumour of Rob Liefeld being put in charge of three DC Comics series. There’s also discussion on the layoffs at Media Blasters (and how the American anime industry is basically going to crap), the upcoming Saturday-nigh Fox animation block, and pizza and calzones. This is an awkward episode that I couldn’t really edit. There are so many audio glitches and stupidity that overlaps will things we say and just ugh. Barking dogs,  Sketch turning into a robot…so the entire thing is a raw cut. Hopefully we’ll get better next episode. Speaking of next episode, we’re making some changes to the ScratchCast.

Starting next week, the ScratchCast will be divided into two separate podcasts that will alternate each week. One will be a news podcast, which is pretty self-explanatory. The other will be our feature podcast, where we’ll continue to talk about random crap loosely tied into a main topic.

This episode was recorded on Thursday night, and we had some…problems with it. Not just the occasional wind tunnel sounds that you’ll hear while listening, or the bizarre echo-filled closing. No, I’m talking about the 30 minutes it took for all of us to get our act together and start the episode. There was arguing and random laughter, Jon got pissed at everyone, and I screamed in anger for the first time in months. Not a good start to an end-of-the-year episode, and our first one at that. But while hastily editing this episode for tonight, I found myself feeling like this 2-hour long episode was very enjoyable. Hell, not only did we have TomatoSurprise, ToonFaithful, and Sketch, but also Mr. Wednesday from Animation Revelation and Thomas Blalock from Twitter. And dammit, despite the rough start, we had some fun doing this episode and every single one in the past: especially the “lost” episode nine of Notaku Diaries.

Thanks for listening to all the insane and stupid crap we put out this year, from Notaku Diaries, to Not Another Old Cartoon Podcast, to those weird WRSP thingys, and finally the ScratchCast. Here’s hoping that we continue to act like fools in the future…as well as improve our quality. See y’all next year!

Placeholder until I design a logo for the Scratch Cast.

Okay, here it is! The official first episode of the ScratchCast! TomatoSurprise was supposed to be in this episode, but he wasn’t, so screw him. However, Ryan Mead wanted in, so heck yeah, episode one guest star! The key issues discussed here include TetrisDork’s trip to Anime Weekend Atlanta, my review of My Life Me and how wrong I am, DC Nation news, Barnes & Noble getting pissed at DC, and the death of Steve Jobs. But it wouldn’t be the Scratch Pad Cast if we didn’t go on weird tangents, like trying to make sense of Stephenie Meyer’s Breaking Dawn, or if Warner Bros. is trolling Don East. We also manage to connect Steve Jobs’ death to My Little Pony…yeah, we can be pretty weird sometimes.

The most important thing about this, however, is the fact that this is an attempt at a regularly updated podcast. Every other week, to be precise. I’ll try to post new episodes no later than a week after they’re recorded (this was recorded on Sunday), and I hope to keep to that for much longer than we did with Notaku Diaries or Not Another Old Cartoon Podcast. With that said, the podcast feed has been renamed to ScratchCast as well. I think that’s it, so listen and enjoy. RacForce, out.

Welcome to episode three of this craziness folks, this week has been a rather controversial week for the DC New 52. With Catwoman shocking all we focus our attention on DC Universe Presents, Blue Beetle, Wonder Woman, and Batman. Did we love them? Did we hate them? Can you understand Softly Spoken Las? Join Elliot Shade and Tomato Surprise as we try to decipher what the hell is going on.

Softly Spoken Las, aka Linsay Powell, is also a part of Comics Anonymous, a blog devoted to reviewing comics and specifically DC’s New 52. Title card art was done by Jeremy Conrady.

Nothing much to say here. Tomato is back and talking up a storm. I return to being the quiet one who laughs a lot (while I’m there at least. I leave partway during Part Four). TetrisDork butchers the names of a few characters, writers, and artists. Dragonpiece is confused about what is going 70% of the time. ToonFaithful listens to us and tries to put in his humourous two-cents. And Don East is Don East.  And we all get into a debate over the Teen Titans animated series, and other random stuff. All-in-all? Normal podcast episode. But if you must know…I didn’t edit this much. Schoolwork mixed with general laziness means that I ended up just cutting the initial conversations we had before we did the podcast proper. So you don’t get to hear me freak out over dying several times in New Super Mario Bros. Wii. or at Tetris playing a high-frequency buzzer for several seconds. I apologize for that. But you do get to hear all our flubs, so that’s a plus. I don’t know when the next WRSP podcast is going to be, but I do know that we need a better name for it than that.

Join us once again as Tomato Surprise and Elliot Shade take on the New 52′s most meh week thus far. We cover the newer, thinner Amanda Waller in Suicide Squad, the feeling of a text file in Frankenstein: Agent of SHADE, and the awesomeness of both Batwoman and Mr. Terrific. Will Tomato keel over from his over-exposure to Adam Glass? Does EA Glover have the Voice of God? Am I ever going to get my head on straight?

The Reboot Recovery title card was done by Jeremy Conrady. The music in the intro is In The Meantime by Spacehog (iTunes | Amazon | website).

Last Wednesday, during Part One of  the DCnU Buyer’s Guide, we let it be known that Tomato Surprise, along with TRSP friend Elliot Shade, planned to review of all 52 titles that DC is launching/rebooting this month.
