It’s 2013. It’s been 2013 for quite a while now. And from upcoming films to comics to television series, we have a lot to look forward to and a lot to discuss in the next 12 months. But before we can completely get into the 2013 groove, we have to reflect on the previous year first. So while this article is several days late, it’s time to share with you all the thoughts and emotions we had on some of bigger events that rocked the worlds of ink-and-paint entertainment back in 2012. Well, the ones that we cared about, anyway. While we have recorded an episode of the ScratchCast for your listening “pleasure”…the audio from the second half was kinda messed up. Wasn’t good at all. And that just gave me more incentive to have a…let’s say transcribed version of it (my thoughts are separate from the “transcribed” version). That said, you can listen to the 20 minutes of the podcast I could salvage and/or click that “Read the rest of this entry” button for a more visual than auditory experience. Also, check out that short blooper reel. It’s fun.

After a long, long break caused by both laziness and my inability to figure out how to register for college classes, the ScratchCast is finally back! That is to say, we’ve been recording some episodes during this time, but I haven’t started editing them until recently (this episode was recorded in March). So let’s hope I can successfully play catch-up and post the other two episodes we’ve recorded this week as well.

In this episode, Ryan takes the helm and leads a two-hour discussion on the ever-popular Disney animated series Phineas and Ferb, and manages to keep us on track for once, despite having to deal with an inebriated Don East. So stay and listen for a bit, at least up to the part where Don gives an award-winning performance of a typical Phineas and Ferb episode. Or you can stay until the end, where Don gets his finger stuck in a bottle for a few minutes and we all mock him…yeah, Don does some weird stuff this episode. (As for the Shonen Jump Alpha interview…*shrug*)

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.

I don’t need to tell you that Cartoon Network has gone through a lot of changes in its short history as a network. From only showing classic animation in the early 90s, to creating original animated programming beginning 1995, to even the embracing of live-action in the mid-2000s: Toon has been through quite a bit. But if one thing has stayed constant, it is the channel’s inability to surpass their fellow networks in the ratings. No matter how original the concept, no matter how funny or action-packed one of their shows might be, and no matter the timeslot, Cartoon Network is rarely able to catch more than a second’s worth of glory. Time to take a look at the reasons why.

Since you all demanded it, I, Don East, is now an official member of the Scratch Pad.  I haven’t really figured what I’m going to do exactly but until then here’s a review one of the most anticipated animated feature films in recent years, “Toy Story 3.”  The voice cast includes Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Joan Cusack, and Ned Beatty and is directed by Lee Unkrich.  Now I warn you, if you haven’t seen the movie, beware of spoilers.
