Rangercast is MOVING. Adjust your feeds!
August 15, 2007 06:57 AM PDT

Like I mentioned last episode, Rangercast has a new home at rangercast.libsyn,com. Go there and pick up our new feed. And if you're particularly interested in our older episodes, I'll be posting a torrent over there sometime with all the old episodes I can pull together. See ya on the other side!

Rangercast Episode 61: Conventionitis
August 13, 2007 11:38 AM PDT

Tober discusses his time at Anime Festival Orlando, where one of the headlining guests was Jeebus himself, Jason David Frank. Tyler, recovering from convention burnout, regales the panel with tales of Otakon and why all of you need to go next year.

We talk about Overdrive's latest episode, One Fine Day.

Chris and Ryland us incredibly off topic as they reminisce about geeking out with Greg Aronowitz at Power Morphicon and we all agree--COME BACK TO THE SHOW GREG, WE MISS YOU. And speaking of Power Morphicon, it's been said we'll know more about the status of a second con
soon. It's expected Disney will become more involved, but is that a good thing?

And in Rangerboard Masterpiece Theatre, Killer shares his elaborately-worded thoughts on Time Force.

And yes, we're moving. This will be the last regular episode posted to Podomatic, though I'll make another notice to put up after this to make sure you guys get the idea. Check us out at our new home at rangercast.libsyn.com! Or just use our feedburner feed off to the side there. See ya on the other side!

Rangercast Episode 60: Rangercast @ Otakon 2007 (Part 2- Freedom)
August 11, 2007 09:04 AM PDT

Saturday and Sunday, let's do this.
2:20- Tyler runs down the Media Blasters panel. Not having viable audio sucks.
3:59- AAA panel rundown and one clip. Yeah, the panel rooms just are not set up for field recording. Somebody asks them if they're KR fans. Hehehe. One of them later mentioned owning a KR suit. Oh snap.
7:28- Tyler speaks with Steve Baird again, asks how that therapy's going.
9:35- Tyler shares a story of the Dealer's Room.
10:11- The legendary Purple Tentacle of Otakon has been unmasked.
11:41- Tyler interviews many Anonymii in the 4chan line. Here we go again.
12:51- Right next to the car going down the street blasting the generic rap track of the moment, Tyler hears another car blasting Hare Hare Yukai. Yep, welcome to Otakon.
13:30- The sounds of the 4chan line. WHOOOOO!
18:54- Trends in Tokusatsu panel
1:11:33- Tyler discusses the AAA press conference. Autographs 3 was not a good room for recording. But it was fun. Tyler took some notes.
1:20:17- Mike recounts his guest encounters over lunch and Otakon's final moments.
1:22:19- Tyler does a rundown of how Otakon went on the whole. Wish you were here. August 8-10, 2008. Be there.

Also, buried within the episode, Tyler gets a clue to the current whereabouts of David Yost, and no, he's not working in a pizza shop.

Check out the Flickr posted in RC58's show notes for all of the photos from the con.

Music used (all from AAA):

Rangercast Episode 59: Disrespecting Your Elders
August 06, 2007 07:33 AM PDT

Our panel tonight (Tyler, Impy, Mike Dent, Lisa, Katie) tackles Once a Ranger, the 15th anniversary uber-teamup. And at the same time go incredibly off topic. Also, will the new game PR Super Legends be PRDT game-caliber fail or MMPRTM game-caliber epic win?

Next time on Rangercast: AAA, tentacles, and WHOOOOOOOO! on Otakon Part 2!

Rangercast Episode 58: Rangercast @ Otakon 2007 (Part 1- Prelude to a Climax)
July 30, 2007 11:46 AM PDT

You know, I had a whole plan set to make RC58 the Once a Ranger ep. We were going to record it Friday or Saturday night and I'd have it up by the end of the weekend and have Otakon part 1 already ready to go so I could take the week off. Unfortunately, on Friday night, Mother Nature, fate, and the fine people at Comcast got together and decided "No Tyler! No Rangercast for you!" and knocked my cable out. Comcast doesn't feel like getting out to my place to fix it until Wednesday, but that doesn't mean I didn't have a plan B to get something to keep the feed warm. So here, thanks to the power of elbow grease, Borders wi-fi, and sheer force of will, for your listening pleasure, is Part 1 (Thursday and Friday) of Otakon 2007.

I intercept Mike Dent at the airport and after some wrangling we make it down to the always-lovely Baltimore Convention Center for the Otakon's famed pre-game festivities: the pre-reg pickup. We meet up with Gerald (Anime World Order) as he shares in-depth one-syllable insights into the madness. Friday, the fun really starts. I land a brief chat with John Sirabella (Media Blasters) about how KR The First did and how it looks for future toku releases. Then later, we watch AAA rock the house, as Mike and I scream like retards during Climax Jump. And no, no bootleg audio.

Finally, we wrap up the day's fun with the full audio of the Podcaster's Roundtable, featuring yours truly, Mike, Gerald, Dave and Joel (Fast Karate for the Gentleman), Rym and Scott (Geek Nights), and Erin and Noah (Ninja Consultants). Oh yeah, we rocked that panel room.

Check out my pictures HERE!

And that picture up there for this episode? That is the Baltimore Convention Center Thursday afternoon, seen from the observation deck at the World Trade Center. Yes ladies and gentlemen, you're looking at the line visible from SPACE.

Rangercast 2007 Promo: "Rangercast is..."
July 17, 2007 08:18 AM PDT

I realized it's been a very long time since I mixed a new promo. I also have all these wonderful PMC clips just sitting around. So I decided to make one. It turned out pretty nice, I think. If you've got a podcast, mix it in. If you don't, I don't know, just play it over and over?

Rangercast Episode 57: The In-Betweener
July 16, 2007 08:39 PM PDT

No real episode discussion this week. Scheduling didn't work out. However, we *do* have a little decompression chat with Tyler, Hayden (cyberblue/PMC staff/director, co-writer, EP of Celestial Fury), Matt (JediMB), and Aaron (Shyranger), who swears he's not invisible. Yeah Shy, whatever.

Tyler's at Otakon in a few days, doing two panels, at least one interview, and in general lots of running around. Once a Ranger premiers next Monday. Something tells me somebody will have his hands full come next Monday.

Rangercast Episode 56: Power Morphicon Part 3 (The Sea of Twanqwiwity and Other Random Musings)
July 10, 2007 11:15 AM PDT

Here it is, as promised. The rest of Saturday, followed by Sunday panels and the closing ceremonies. Enough blabbing from me, just sit back and enjoy.

5:52- Chris comments on Paulie finally arriving.
7:47- Another installment of "Chris Has No Words" (TM), followed by Tyler claiming amnesia for the rest of the night. Memory lapses suck, don't they? winking
10:20- Forever Red Panel. (Dan Southworth, Austin St. John, Steve Cardenas, James MacLurcan)
48:00- The I'm Not Red or a Girl Panel aka Unsung Heroes Panel. (Johnny Bosch, Matt Austin, Samuell Benta, Gareth Yuen, Richard Brancatisano, Walter Jones, Paul Schrier, Jason Narvy)
1:05:01- Bulk and Skull, take 2. Hilarity, and inside jokes, ensue
1:44:14- Tyler does a little in-between commentary with Keith Hayward (Henshin Justice)
1:45:49- Excerpts from a presentation from Tony Oliver. He showed us the original callbacks from MMPR (sans Thuy, plus Audri) and the team that didn't quite make it to the pilot, along with the opening scene from the first, second (never seen), and third pilot. He then whipped out some old promos and a behind-the-scenes featurette from Zeo. Then he finished up with the Lost Episode special. Awesome stuff. Though since this is video, I didn't see fit to get the audio from all of it. Sorry. Try youtube.
2:00:44- Due to...stuff...Chris Funaro was unable to do his closing speech. But that doesn't mean he didn't have anything to say. We invited him to record his speech for Rangercast. Enjoy.

Next time on Rangercast: PMC decompression, with special guests Shyranger, JediMB, and PMC staffer Chris Peterson

And yes, that picture IS Matt Austin doing a headstand. A subtle art, that headstand is.

Rangercast Episode 55: Back In The Day (Power Morphicon Part 2)
July 04, 2007 09:12 PM PDT

A lot of blood, sweat, tears, editing magic, and most of all, megabytes, went into this one. Here I was, expecting to stuff all of Saturday into one show, but nope, not happening. That said, here's *most* of Saturday. Enjoy.

2:46- Tyler again goes to Chris, Jesse, and Ryland for some more expert commentary....er, commentary at least. Chris, co-writer of Celestial Fury, chimes in on how he thought Friday night's premiere went.

4:22- Excerpts of the MMPR panel, "Where It All Began." Featuring: Austin St. John, Jason Narvy, Steve Cardenas, Johnny Yong Bosch, Tony Oliver, and Koichi Sakamoto, with surprise guests Walter Jones and Ed Neil

43:25- Tyler does a quick sanity check/interview with PMC secretary Katy Sellers (Hazydestiny) as she tries to keep it together

44:10- Snippets of the Bulk and Skull panel. Paul Schrier was at this point still en route to Los Angeles. Jason Narvy instead regaled us with some wonderful tales.

59:33- Stunts panel. Featuring: Gah, way too many people! Look out for me quizzing Koichi on explosions. And yes, that hip-hop-kido is pretty awesome. And you wanna see the stunt show? Try Youtube.

1:44:30- Brief snippet from the SPD panel. I got more, but...Anywho, Greg discusses how they really planned the SPD ending. Kind of. Omni is James Goldblum. He's watching you...(you finish this sentence, cause I won't)

1:45:47- Producing Power Rangers panel. Featuring: Jackie Marchand, Koichi Sakamoto, Greg Aronowitz, Tony Oliver.

Rangercast Episode 54: Power Morphicon Part 1 (The Meet and Greet)
