I've just opened up my new site for No Pink Spandex, and have recently starting posting ranger news there. Again, when I've completely merged posts here to the new site, then I'll open up the community for anyone to post whatever ranger-related business they'd like to share.

Thanks to everyone again for following Ranger News, and I hope that you'd follow the new NPS site in the same vein. Peace!

One more thing, you can view my new post about Matt Austin's PR documentary here.

I've been doing a lot of thinking, and if you know my other work, I have a lot of sites, lol. So therefore, I've decided that merging this site and No Pink Spandex is the best thing to do. They deal with the same topics, just one audio/video and one written. And it'll be easier to update in the long run.

This community will still remain open, but I'll slowly merging the two in the meantime. I hope that when the new No Pink Spandex is revealed, you'll support that as much as you have with Ranger News.

Much Love!

9th-Feb-2009 11:21 pm - NY Comic Con Wrap Up
Recently went to NY Comic Con and met with Neil Kaplan (Diabolico from Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue) and Bruce Kalish (Executive Producer from Power Rangers SPD - Power Rangers Jungle Fury). My friends and I talked with Neil for a long time. A long time. But it was pure awesomeness. Some punk kid tried to mess with him, and after I screamed at the punk kid, he ran to his punk father....and then Neil walked up to the punk duo to talk it out. He didn't have to do that. He did that on the behalf of myself and my friends. Pure. Awesomeness.

On Sunday, I saw the full two-part premiere of Aaron Stone. If you don't want to be spoiled even in the slightest, you can skip the review here:

After the screening, the cast was there to talk and answer questions about the show. Bruce mentioned that he got the idea for the series by watching his son play video games like Halo, and then going out to cosplay because of the games. So he pitched the idea to Disney, they loved it, and the rest is history.

I did get to talk to Bruce a bit after the Q&A, and I was tempted in asking why he left Power Rangers, but the answer is pretty simple. You got your own show that you've created, and no matter what, that's the thing you'd rather do and work on. Nothing bad about how PR is made, but if you don't have to shoehorn footage that you didn't make, then that's a better deal for me.

NY Comic Con was gigantic, and I missed all the mainstream geeky cool stuff, but I had my niche and covered it well. Glad I went, and as my first Comic Con, good times.

2nd-Feb-2009 10:27 am - Jack Olesker - The Saga Continues
I mentioned briefly that there was a little brouhaha about whether Jack Olesker was the deal or not about his PR history, and quite frankly, I've always been skeptical. You can read his threads here and here over at Rangerboard.

Then Jackie Marchand (Co-Producer from Power Rangers Jungle Fury) warned the fans about the whole deal.

So yeah, be damn careful.
31st-Jan-2009 06:36 pm - Challenge!
Recently, the series bible writer of PR Jack Olesker has been posting on Rangerboard, and now he's challenged the fans to come up with a new PR series. Here's an excerpt from his challenge:

For a moment, let's say the phone rings, you pick it up and on the other end is my good friend Jay Francis -- The Disney Channel's V.P. of Original Series Development. Jay starts by telling you something you already know -- namely that Disney spent $5.3 billion to acquire the rights to the Power Rangers franchise and that while they've done pretty well with it, interest in the series has declined and, with it, revenues (toy and merchandise licensing sales). [...]

What you'll need is to create new characters and new vehicles for a new series in order to create new action figures and new playsets that consumers will buy. The trick is to hit on that earth-shattering concept Jay talked about. Learn from the PR incarnations you didn't care that much about. Think about why you didn't care as much about them and think about what elements you would need in a totally new PR series that would shatter the earth. (And hey, maybe shattering the Earth has something to do with it.)
