Giving Mikeys TMNT a chance to win a DVD...

Hey everyone. I know I've not posted on here in a while, but I wanted to get the word out before we do our first drawing to give everyone a chance to win since it will be before the holidays....

I do a podcast called "The Good, The Bad & The Geeky" where me and (usually) two other guys sit and discuss tv/movie news, and review shows, occasionally doing a sketch or parody or two. (we even did a full TMNT-discussion based episode once....)

Point is, we want to make a better show, and with your help we'd like to give you something in return. We are doing a drawing this Sunday for a chance to get a pick of a spankin new DVD. You can keep it for yourself, or give it as a present for Christmas, which may be good since times are so tough due to the recession! :) We got some decent DVDs too, and you're prolly wondering what the catch is.

All we ask is you listen to an episode, then take and answer every question on our not too long survey, and this Sunday we will do a drawing. Whoever's name is drawn gets a chance to pick from one of the following DVDs below:

Hot Fuzz
Iron Man
Little Miss Sunshine
Uncle Buck

The great thing is, if you fill out a survey and don't win, your name stays in the hat as we will be doing another drawing after New Years and once every other month, and more dvds will be added into the pile. (Maybe a TMNT related one as well if my supplier can step it up!) And please remember, we want to make our show even better, so if you don't like something, let us know! :)

I understand if this needs to be taken down or moved to the forums, but I thought I'd give it a shot as I usually hate posting on here to 'whore my stuff' but in this, you guys have a chance to truly get something in return and Mikey, Tokka and the crew have been more than amazing in terms of introducing great friends (tho i've been lurking alot lately) and allowing me to help out a few years ago.

I hope everyone is having a good holiday and I hope one of you guys wins! :):):)

Much love...

Nick Nitro

Icelandic rapper, raps about TMNT

Hey TokKA, I just liked to share with you this link because I thought that maybe some of TMNT Fans or maybe someone you know at Mirage (like Steve Murphy) might find this funny or amusing.

..Controversial Icelandic rapper Bent recently released the song "1, 2 & Jesus" which describes his fall to atheism. ..

But the first verse is very interesting to note, as it's all about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

He raps about how he wanted the TMNT Action Figures, the T-Shirts (and he's wearing one in the video) as well as the popular Nintendo games from Konami.

He then says that he used to pray to Jesus and then Santa, but when neither gave him his wishes, he moved to atheism.

Wanted to share with you the video just to show you that TMNT are still making headline news in various places.

"My good friend and boss (not sure too many people can say that these days) Dan Berger has informed me that Tales #50 is due at Diamond on the 16th of Sept. which means it should be hitting the shelves that week, if not sooner (depending on how fast Brenner get it printed).

Re: New Live Action Ninja Turtles Movie In The Works?
Posted by: Kevin Eastman (IP Logged)

Yes, it is true. Although the CGI film did well enough to warrent a sequel, there has been much talk between Imagi and Warners to do a better "re-invention" (newest Hollywood buzzword) of the TMNT's, in a live action film--like what was done with Batman. Back to basics, back to the origin and the intro of the Shredder, etc...there have been talks, trips to Northampton to talk to Mr Laird, and discussions with the original "first" TMNT film director Steve Barron to come back and do it right--but no official word yet...will keep you posted.

Get on the Turtle Bus !!

Rose:"In case it's not already obvious, a Press Kit gets constructed and released - to the press - as part of the marketing effort for a film. These days they're all done digitally, compiled onto DVDs. Back in 1990 it was a simple folder loaded with some 8x10 black and white photos and some photocopied production notes.

Instead of focusing on a deleted scene today, I thought I would give typing a break and scan the contents of the press kit for the original movie. After I did that, I ended up typing 20 pages of production notes, so I really didn't save myself from anything.

Below you'll find all of the photos included with the kit as well as an excerpt from the production notes. If you download the complete .zip file, you'll have more production notes to read. One of the reasons I went through with typing 20 pages of these things was that all of the information is really, really unique and interesting, and I'm not sure that there's anywhere else that you can read something similar to this. There are quotes from all of the major players who had a hand in making the movie, including the late and great Jim Henson.

It's really all quite fantastic and I think it will also give you extra appreciation for all of the hard work that people put into this movie to make it the classic it ended up being.

A classic that should receive proper DVD treatment! *ahem*"

TMNT Deleted Scene: Training on the Farm

Roseangelo ::

"Here is the second deleted scene from the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film that I am highlighting in support of the **TMNT Special Edition project. Warner Brothers isn't yet convinced that this is a good idea - But they ARE watching us! - so be sure to let them know personally that you want this Special Edition DVD!

This scene is also pretty well documented, and bits and pieces of it can be seen in the actual movie. I've scanned a few stickers, trading cards, and pics taken from a book and magazine from this part, but the lengthy bit from the script might be more interesting to you.

This scene comes immediately after April yells at Casey, "I wouldn't ask for your help if you were the last... "thing" on the face of the planet!" and Casey follows with, "Coming along 'nicely' ..." .. ..

TMNT: Back to the Sewer :: "Miyamoto Usagi" design Peek i  [[ Courtesy of Stan Sakai ]]

" Usagi had appeared in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' TV series in the '80s/'90s, beginning with an episode aptly titled "Usagi Yojimbo."

He has been making guest appearance in the current animated series, introduced in the 4-part Battle Nexus storyline. Leonardo visits Usagi's world in another story, and many of my secondary characters are introduced. Usagi and Gen the rhino bounty hunter even make it to New York in another episode. Needless to say, these stories are not part of my comic book continuity.

Usagi and Gen will be showing up in the coming season as well. Here are a couple of character designs " -- Stan Sakai

** "I don't know exactly when the new season of the TV show will be starting. But so far I have seen the "locked picture" versions of the first three episodes (these are with all of the animation compete but no music or sound effects) and I am liking it. I'm especially pleased with the look that they have given "cyberspace".

I'm very happy that we were able, through the good graces of Stan Sakai, to get Usagi and Gen into an episode of this upcoming season. I can't reveal everything about it, but I can tell you that it is the last episode of the season and it does not take place in Las Vegas." -- PL

Rose::"This is the first entry in a series to highlight all of the deleted scenes from the original 1990 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. While all of the deleted scenes from the movie are fairly well documented throughout books and comics, we still have yet to see any of these scenes in their entirety. This is a key reason why releasing a Special Edition DVD of this movie is a necessity!

While the movie ended with our heroes triumphant on the rooftop of a building, there was one final scene in the script. This scene had April and Danny in the office of a comic book publisher, trying to pitch the idea of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Here are some photos from that scene, as well as the actual script that was used for filming! .. "
