Entertainment for the Eyes and the Ears

Propjosh dropped me a line to let me know he is preparing to unleash the final season of his long-running Blue and Gold fan series. Here's what he had to say about what you'll see when you visit his YouTube channel:

Without giving away too much, this season will be very closely related to the Booster Gold comics. Five years passed since Ted Kord was killed and Booster is trying to cope while working alongside Rip Hunter. There will definitely be some episodes straight from the comics. There will also be an episode where they will be completely animated with possibly a guest star.

Here's a link to my trailer for the season.

I will have new episodes every Saturday starting Sept 5th until the end of the year.

September 5? That's tomorrow! Finally something to watch other than the constant stream of political advertisements on my television. Thanks, Josh!

And if you're looking for something else to entertain you this long Labor Day weekend, know that Blue and Gold -- A Superman and Booster Gold Podcast released a new episode earlier this week. You can find it via blueandgoldpodcast.blogspot.com.

Youtube videos and podcasts? Sometimes the Internet is pretty great.

Heroes and Hijinks

Booster booster Eskana dropped me this note last week:

I don't know if you've seen these yet, but the Comicstorian channel on YouTube has been posting videos that contain some major Booster Gold. The host, Benny, has been holding "Dungeons & Dragons"-style role-playing games for the DC universe, and in each one the two guests are playing as the characters of Booster Gold and Blue Beetle (Ted.) I've never played D&D, but the videos are pretty entertaining as the guests do a pretty good job of acting out their roles as Ted and Booster. The episodes seem to feature the two working with the new Blue Wally West to fix anomalies in time and the multiverse, so you see them acting out storylines such as DCeased.

I'm not a frequent consumer of YouTube videos, but I have played my share of D&D. More than my share, if the truth were known. (Full disclosure, an rpg campaign I ran in 2001 is the basis for a series of novels I wrote in 2016. *plug, plug*)

These guys at Comicstorian seem to know what they're doing, and, more importantly, they're obviously having a pretty good time role-playing as our favorite heroes. Given the current health crisis, a podcasting video might be as close as many of us will get to a real gaming session in the near future.

If you're interested in such things, you can find the video at YouTube.com.

Thanks for the link, Eskana.

This Day in History: Death Rattle

Many, many of you seem very excited about this Cable vs Booster Gold DEATH BATTLE!, so let's just go ahead and watch it, shall we? (The really good stuff starts at about 13:20, just after the Blue Apron ad.)

Hmmm. Let's see. Booster Gold's force field is strong enough to stop Superman, so yeah, it'd stop whatever Cable could throw at it. But mind control? I'm not sure that scans.

Booster Gold traditionally has a real problem with mind control. See: Justice League Annual #1, Justice League #6, Justice League International #17, Eclipso: The Darkness Within #2, Justice League America #59, Time Masters: Vanishing Point #4, Year of the Villain: Hell Arisen, to name a few examples to the contrary.

For the record, despite what the video says, it wasn't Booster's force field that saved his memories in Justice League: Generation Lost. Booster himself assumes in issue #2 that the four members of the JLI that were unaffected by Max Lord's re-writing of history were saved by the mechanics of Lord's broadcast (much in the same way that radio waves directed outward from radio antennas fail to send a signal to the base of the tower). Then Lord seems to say in issue #5 that he left them their memories on purpose. Either way, the force field deserves no credit.

But why let a few technicalities distract from a fun time, eh?

(I *really* should keep my mouth shut here. Death Battle has 4.5 million subscribers, which makes it very likely that more people will see Booster Gold for the first time in this YouTube video than any other singe occasion in the character's history. For comparison, the Smallville episode "Booster" — broadcast on this day in 2011 — was watched by a mere 2.3 million people. Death Battle for the win!)

Thanks to all who sent me the link.

No New Comics? No Problem

Since today is the first New Comics Day without comics in the history of New Comics Days, you're probably looking to get your Booster Gold fix somewhere else. How about Youtube?

First, Booster booster Eskana lets us know that our hero — as played by Ali G — appears briefly in the latest Honest Trailers take on "Justice League: The Snyder Cut".

Meanwhile, friend of the blog Michael Foster has spotted Booster Gold in a musical montage of Phil Cho's fan created "Earth-27 Heroes". (Start looking at the 50 second mark, right after Fire and Ice.)

And that's not all! According to CDN, the YouTube series Death Battle has promised in their latest video to next feature a Cable vs Booster Gold match-up. If you want to keep tabs on when that might drop, you can find their videos here.

Thanks for the notifications. And if anyone else spots Booster somewhere in the wild, please let me know.

Get On the Booster Bus

One of the good thing about having no comic books is that I have more time to watch cartoons. And, as Booster booster Ithildyn has recently brought to my attention, Booster Gold has been making cameo appearances in recent episodes of the online DC Super Hero Girls shorts.

He's on the side of the bus at the 34 second mark in #TheCommute.

DC Super Hero Girls, #TheCommute

And he's on the side of another bus (ok, maybe the same bus) at the 1.17 mark in #ShellShock!

DC Super Hero Girls, #Shellshock

"Give Yourself A Boost" with Booster Cereal? That's a product we've not seen before. Just how many cereals are you going to endorse, buddy? You're giving Cap'n Crunch a run for his money.

Both videos are available to watch via YouTube.com. (#TheCommute, #ShellShock).
