Honestly, I thought I would put this out early. Thought wrong and turns out I am lazier than Racattack. Well, either way, here is the first of an experimental new ScratchCast episode, where we talk about news. Recorded on January 22, Ryan, Don, and I talked about recent events; well, recent when we recorded the podcast. Like the debut of the new DC Comics logo that is now 100% official and not a Bleeding Cool rumor. We discuss the fall of SOPA and PIPA, which gives us an excuse and segway to talk about MegaUpload and founder Kim Dotcom’s fleet of cars. We also got Ryan to ramble about Bone, Don East to discuss the economics of My Little Pony DVDs, and Scott Lobdell writing that Axe webcomic thing. And, most importantly, the most important My Little Pony news ever…on January 22.

BTW, music notes: The opening is “Uncaged Czarina” by Dan O’Connor, Free Royalty-Free Music by DanoSongs.com. The ending is the glorious MegaUpload song.

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.

This was originally supposed to be a full podcast that was a Part 2 to the first one. However, it turns out that none of us knows the meaning of the term “Lightning Round,” since the entire Buyer’s Guide had to be divided into four parts, each 40-60 minutes in length. It’s probably for the best though, since you guys get a better idea about how we feel about each title. Each segment covers one week: Part 1 covers Sept. 7 (aka today), Part 2 covers Sept. 14, etc. The last two parts will be posted on Sept. 21st, so be on the lookout for that.

During these first two parts, Tetris is talking through his iPod, so some of what he says near the beginning of the recording is covered up slightly by static. This clears itself up later on, though. Also of note is the fact that I speak for more than a minute…in fact, there are points where I just go crazy and don’t shut up, especially when we talk about Rob Liefeld. Toon is there throughout the first part, but chooses not to say a word until the second. TomatoSurprise and Shadows of Thot were supposed to be on these parts, but…things came up for both of them. The former recorded his thoughts on these first 26 comics though, and you can listen to them below.

As promised, we got together to share our feelings on the whole DC Universe reboot. In Part One, which was recorded on the 26th, we focus on the entire experiment as a whole, debating the good and bad aspects of it, as well as our initial feelings when we first learned about the reboot and how they have changed over the past few months. If you are more interested in hearing our thoughts on the individual comics, since they all happened to hit store shelves (both physically and digitally) today, then just wait until next Wednesday for Part Two of this “joint podcast thing.” The outro is the unused theme for a 60s Batgirl series.

On a general podcast note, we plan on merging Notaku Diaries and Not Another Old Cartoon Podcast into a single entity with the WRSP name come September…which means that the SDCC 2011 ‘cast back in July was technically the first episode of this new project and this is the second. Of course, all the episodes of Notaku and NAOCP that haven’t been posted will be posted eventually, hopefully before the fourth episode of WRSP.

P.S. – Since Tomato never gave me that link, I had to find those DC Comics sales charts myself.  And here are the charts from January to June 2011 (couldn’t find July or August). So yeah, you can see why they took such a gamble with this relaunch. And while it seems to be a success so far, we just have to wait and see how it does in the long-run…man, I say far more in the production notes than I do in…almost every podcast episode really. Also, here’s the ad that DC made to promote the comics…yeah, no comment there.

Le gasp, an update! On The (Real) Scratch Pad? What the hell is this bullshit!? Horrible jokes aside, since the entire Scratch Pad crew is pretty aware that we’ve done jack-all on this site for a month, we decided to come together and share our thoughts on some of the happenings that occurred at SDCC last weekend. We don’t discuss everything, obviously, but we do talk about all the Marvel stuff and The Last Airbender: Legend of Korra. There is also some discussion of the Green Lantern film. Finally, we all decided to save the DCnU stuff for later, so keep an eye out for that. As usual, I’m silent as hell while Tetris, Don, and Sketch do all the talking. Oh, and Dragonpiece is in this as well.

What Does Thou Desire?, Homework Time, Bully Beatdown, and We Were Promised Mechas!

Okay, one day late. No problem, no problem, just forgot…but I can assure you that my time was well-spent on Friday: watching Freelance Astronauts videos. Those guys are hilarious. Anyway, time for episode info all about Don East! Before recording this episode, ToonFaithful stole my awesome prank idea and fooled Don into listening to a certain track from the Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt OST. And throughout the entire the recording, while making the occasional bizarre joke that may come from his secret stash of furry porn, the dude was most likely playing Pokemon HeartGold. In fact, he always plays video games during recording: he’s just better at hiding that fact than Toon and I. Lastly, starting with this episode, I’ll be putting anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes worth of extra stuff after the ending theme. It may be from the episode its tied with, like today’s, or be from a different episode. Why am I doing this? Well, we say far too much funny stuff during pre-recording that just can’t be missed. Now music: we kick this episode off 80s-style with Macross by Makoto Fujiwara, which is the theme song for the show of the same name. And we exit with Tomare! by Aya Hirano, which is the closing theme for none other than Haruhi Suzumiya.

Fever Fever Fever, Swimming Swimming Swimming, and Eight Eight Eight

No, your eyes don’t deceive you, five people who actually watch this podcast. Notaku Diaries has finally returned after a two-month hiatus! Doesn’t that just blow your minds? No? Oh well. So what is in this episode of Notaku Diaries? Why, no other than…The Melancholy of Haruhi SuzumiyaBECK: Mongolian Chop Squad? And Outlaw Star? Wow, we haven’t updated in a while, since we’re already talking about Digimon Tamers in our weekend recordings. We have to play quite a bit of catch-up here, so why don’t we have two Notaku updates a week: Mondays and Fridays? That sound good? Great. Well, since it has been two months, I don’t remember any behind-the-scenes details surrounding this little venture. So straight to the music: we courageously (or stupidly) charge into Endless Eight with Super Driver by Aya Hirano, which is used as the theme song for the second season of Haruhi Suzumiya. And we leave for our house on the moon with Tsuki No Ie by Arai Akino, which is used as the second ending theme in Outlaw Star.

P.S. Don East and Chdr try to kill each other in this episode, which is frikken hilarious.
