Like Music to My Ears

Kids these days have it so easy. Back in my day, if you didn't walk uphill in the snow each week, you could miss out on an issue forever!

Last week's poll question: ( votes)

It's not easy putting words in Booster Gold's mouth. So who's done it the best?

He Was a Painter, Not a Musician

Today, Vincent van Gogh is one of the most recognized and popular artists on Earth. What makes him so enduring? Is it his colorful, expressionist style? His warped landscapes? His hauntingly lonely self-portraits? Or is it the mysterious man himself?

Vincent van Gogh cut off his own ear in 1888

Historians tell us that van Gogh suffered from depression. One hundred twenty-five years ago today, he cut off part of his own ear. That doesn't sound like the act of a happy person, does it? Could his mood have been improved if he had known that one day he would take his place among the greatest painters of all time? Only a time traveler would ever know.

The Fringes of Fandom?

I'm quite glad to see that each of these artists has supporters among Booster Gold fans. (At this point, I'd even be willing to see Liefeld get his hands on Booster.)

Last week's poll question: Which still-active artist who has never drawn Booster Gold would you most like to see draw the character? (41 votes)

Which still-active artist who has never drawn Booster Gold would you most like to see draw the character?

That was fun. We'll revisit the topic of artists in the near future. In the meantime, a more topical question given my recent post:


One more thing of note: Adam Warrock of "Booster Gold" rap fame will be having a 24-hour long Rap-A-Thon fundraiser tomorrow to help replace equipment recently stolen. If you liked his Booster Gold rap, or if you'd like to hear him make more DC or pop-culture-centric raps in the future, consider popping over to his site AdamWarrock.com tomorrow, August 24, 2012, and making a donation to his cause.

No Hero Can Ever Have Too Many Theme Songs

I can't explain why some of this music video looks the way it does. However, this video isn't for looking at, it's for listening to.

According to Facebook, Basement Bob is a singer/songwriter from Edmonton, Canada. Facebook doesn't mention that he has fantastic taste in super heroes.

Old News Is Good News

Over the holiday weekend, CDN took me to task for not reporting something here on the Boosterrific Blog back in April. Specifically, I failed to forward the news that so far as Geoff Johns is concerned, Booster Gold is "always a Time Master."

As I explained in my apology to CDN, that bit of news came out the same weekend as the announcement that SyFy got their hands on a Booster Gold pilot script. As a result, what Geoff Johns said at the 2012 Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo (aka "C2E2") managed to fall off the front page of the blog. Readers of Russ Burlingame's reporting at Comicbook.com were aware of this news, but I failed to pass it along here at Boosterrific.com.

Good news like that shouldn't fall through the cracks. Sorry, CDN.

And while I'm on the subject of old news, perhaps I should pass along a link to Adam WarRock and Mikal kHill performing the song "Booster Gold" that has been posted on YouTube. (Beware, the song contains "explicit lyrics" and is not work safe, which is why I don't embed it here directly.) WarRock released the song and its album, You Dare Call That Thing Human?!?, a few months back, and both are still very much available for download from adamwarrock.bandcamp.com. (The song costs just for just $1 to download!) We shouldn't stop supporting songs about Booster Gold just because they're a few months old. Thanks to Moregenstern for that link.

Where would I be without you Booster-philes?
