Episode 7, we delve into the Michelangelo Micro-Series as well as Eastman and Laird’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Vol.1, #6. This a weird one. Just sayin’. The concept of “moon money” is introduced here. And now it belongs to the ages. And the snow… My God the snow.
And he’s available! For your art and logo commission work, of course. He has a girlfriend. And while she’s awesome, I don’t think she’s that into sharing. And do you blame her? I mean, LOOK AT THAT SOUP CAN!
This week we introduce our new logo. If you saw the effortless ease with which Joe made it, you might be thinking (as I was at the time) “Damn… How’s he just whip those things up like that?! And he’s a Guinness World Record Holder in Gradius? Are my genetics just inferior or what?”. Besides creating our awesome logo, Joe will also be assisting us when we cover the TMNT role playing game and with the multitude of TMNT video game releases for the show. He takes commissions for a really fair price and his work is astounding, You can drop in and check out his other work or order a custom piece of art for yourself at joerocksart.com . Tell him Domestic Danny sent ‘ya!
And it’s almost CRITMAS! So, given the real reason for the season (Crit), and in the spirit of giving (and maybe catching up to live episodes…), we are giving you, our fair listener, 2 whole new episodes of Turtle Soup! These are two of my favorites, personally, and it definitely feels like we’re getting on a roll. Kind of like when you settle in for a really long road trip. You spend the first few minutes getting all situated and then… you just sit there. Bad analogy.
In Episode 6, we tackle Eastman and Laird’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Vol.1, #5 and the Fugitoid One-Shot. There is a generous helping of awesome and gross kid stories on my part in this one. Eric celebrates He-Man’s 30th birthday. And awesomeness ensues! Eureka!

Wrapping up with some news, the Official Turtle Naming Contest is going strong and we are getting some great suggestions, some of which should be covered in some episodes coming up soon. Also, Eric and I are currently revising our TMNT Flow Chart (where we house the now monthly chronological history of the Turtles) and should be able to make that available soon to all of you who want keep pace with the show. There are lots of other cool things we are planning as well, so stay tuned!
Episode 6 – “Eureka! It Works!!!”
Here are again, fine folks. Another episode of Turtle Soup, another step toward… reading, watching, and playing everything TMNT related. On that note, did you guys know I have at least 2 live turtles in my pool? I do.
See, when you buy a house from HUD or any other government run agency who take homes from people that owe Uncle Sam a good deal of money, you tend to find things in a bit of a state of… disrepair. Our house was pretty trashed, and while gutting a lot of the interior and making it sterile and livable, we haven’t gotten to the pool yet. It’s covered with a “cap” made of lumber, chicken wire, and black PVC. Through holes in the PVC you can see dark, murky green water. Damn gross. But fixable. When we get the money to do it…
So one day I’m outside walking around and I peer deep into the opaque waters of my pool. Slowly, like in a dream, an image became apparent. It was a soft shelled snapper turtle at least two feet long. I was pretty freaked out, I must say. It was a couple days later that I noticed a second turtle, a small hardshell that wasn’t nearly as scary. Occasionally I’ll see them in there, swimming around, eating grass clippings, happy as hell. Maybe I’ll when we get that cap off we’ll capture the turtles in question and make them our mascots.
This leads me to my point: I am offering you, the listeners of our fine show, the opportunity to name them. Yes, that’s right, YOU can name the future Turtle Soup mascots! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your suggestions. Let’s do this!
Oh, you wanna hear about the actual episode we’re posting tonight? Okay. We cover Eastman and Laird’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Vol. 1, Issue 4. This was a fun one to read and very interesting to cover, especially given the one and only appearance of the infamous Domestic Danny. Also included in the banter? Our penchant for acting like dogs when we were younger, Jason Biggs’ hilarious Tweet that sent Nickelodeon spinning, and dated football controversy.
We are getting closer and closer to being “live”, as in the episode we record on Friday night being released over the weekend, but for now, we’re still bringing out the episodes with a good deal of delay. Tonight we’re dedicating ourselves to fixing the iTunes issue, which has plagued us much so far. Fun!
Well, without further delay, here it is! Enjoy and don’t forget to write. We love your letters (especially W and K!).
