I recently got an email from Travis Bickle, and although he was clearly "talkin' to me," I think it's best if I just pass along exactly what he said:
We certainly are in a heavy Booster dry spell right now, which is why I was pathetically exuberant upon finding the news I'm about to share. HBO just updated its streaming service to be called simply "Max" instead of "HBO Max" (really clever change), and with this came some slight adjustments to other aspects of the experience as well, including allowing HBO's userbase to more options for their avatars in-app. Now, a user's profile can be represented by none other than Booster Gold, utilizing his look from the JLU animated series. Previously the options were a lot more limited.
Just last week, Warner Bros. Discovery put out a press release announcing new avatars were coming to their retooled app. Booster was nowhere to be seen. I'm very glad to see that oversight has been corrected.
Thanks for the news, Travis, but don't stay up all night watching movies. Lack of sleep is bad for your mental health.

I was sitting at my computer on Friday minding my own business when I got this email from Jake:
I'm praying I didn't miss this on the site, or I'd be awful embarrassed, but Booster appears in the Justice League Action animated shorts "Lasso of Lies", "Selfie Help!", and "Special Delivery"... (these episodes of Justice League Action were shared only as internet webisodes).
No need to be embarrassed, Jake. You're right, those 2017 Justice League Action shorts have not appeared on the site before... because I didn't know they existed! (Or did I? I have a hunch I'm not the only person on this planet who thinks 2017 feels like several lifetimes ago.)
Anyway, now that I know I know better, follow any of these links to watch these 2-minute cartoons on YouTube.
For future reference, the Boosterrific! Other Media: Television page has also been updated with brief descriptions of each webisode.
And while I'm on the topic of the Boosterrific! Other Media page, I should mention that over the weekend, Booster booster Doug sent me a different email pointing out that it was missing the recent McFarlane Toys DC Multiverse Blue Beetle and Booster Gold 2-pack. Oops. I can't pretend that I didn't know about that. The oversight has now been corrected.
My thanks to both Jake and Doug for helping to ensure that Boosterrific is the best site it can be.

I'm not sure if y'all caught this or not but Booster has a cameo as an action figure in the Teen Titans Go! Season 8 episode "Teen Titans Action". It's from March. Thank you for the amazing website!
First things first, thanks! I try. (And I love the "y'all.")
Second, no, I had no idea until you told me. Thanks for that, too! Here's the screen grab:
Thanks for keeping us informed. Keep you eyes out, Booster boosters; y'all never know where you'll find Gold.
