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!

Well, you don’t hear me for even five seconds in this episode, since I couldn’t get my microphone. However, this meant I could record the podcast and continue playing The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword last weekend (if you have a Wii and you don’t own this title already, get it NOW, because it is complete and utter awesome). So, other than the part where everyone imitates the Fonz, I don’t feel that bad for not being able to speak this episode. But enough about me, more about this episode…in BULLET POINTS!

  • A handful of audio issues plagued the beginning of this podcast.
  • This episode is a callback to Not Another Old Cartoon Podcast, for we remember the lovely ride that was Batman: The Brave and the Bold, which was the first series that the NAOCP guys tackle.
  • This episode is also a callback to Notaku Diaries, since we also review the first two episodes of a recent anime series, Majikoi Oh! Samurai Girls!
  • Superflash101 from Twitter joins us for the ride, along with some random Australian dude who sleeps through most of this thing.

Remember when I said there is no way I’d post the next episode a few days early to make up for the second episode being late? Yeah, I was lying through my teeth: here’s episode three, a week early! Boomshakalaka! Anyway, this episode is shorter than usual. An hour and five minutes, to be exact. We’re still trying to figure out what to do after we finish covering the main stuff, so please bare with us. That said, what was the main stuff this week? Why, the return of Beavis and Butt-Head for a new generation, as well as new shows Good Vibes and Allen Gregory. TetrisDork also covers the Spider Island miniseries before we end up taking ten minutes to close out the episode (seriously, The Amazing Race is still on-air?). Oh, and Don is tired. But you already knew that.

Never doing this format EVER AGAIN. It was an okay idea, but going through 30 pieces of news and commenting on each individual one gets boring and tedious after a while. The fun has been doubled, my ass…at least, it felt like that when recording. During editing, I enjoyed listening to it as much as I do listening to most other podcasts. Couldn’t find any content that I wanted to cut. I guess I was just out of it that night…however, we still aren’t going this format again. Unless you guys want us to. Seriously guys, comment and tell us. Please. We know you’re out there. The last episode had 36 downloads directly from Archive. And the iTunes downloads are probably more. PLEASE SAY SOMETHING. Oh, and sorry that this episode is a few days late. Had some stuff on my plate and ended up forgetting to edit it last Friday night. RacForce, out.

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.

I haven’t posted a blog post about Adventure Time in a long time, and by a long time, I mean since the creation of this blog. From the “What Time Is It?!” post, I have to say that my thoughts on the show have changed since then. The first season of Adventure Time was decent. Had a mixture of great episodes, good episodes, not-so-good episodes, and bad episodes. I hoped season two could be better and currently in 2011, it is! I watched “The Limit” last Monday on Cartoon Network and since this blog has been lacking articles lately, I thought it would be nice to share my thoughts on the episode. So welcome to my review of Adventure Time’s newest episode, “The Limit”.
