Still more in tune with the younger generation than the people who wrote the original Teen Titans comics.
“No comments on Swampy appearing in the Animal Man Annual?”
Sure: I hear Swamp Thing is going to be appearing in the Animal Man annual.
There you go.
Speaking of Swamp Thing, I hope my last post didn’t give the impression that I don’t want people to email me about Swamp Thing stuff…of course I do. But I was getting so many emails (and the occasional comment!) about some site posting the Swamp Thing PSA that I thought I’d better put the kibosh on it before my Gmail account hit its storage limit.
I did spend a few minutes at the shop Wednesday evening talking about Swamp Thing media and merchandise with one of our longtime customers…no, I didn’t bring it up, he did, honest. We discussed the greatness of the movies, I warned him about the animated series, noted that my ownership of Swamp Thing slippers could someday be considered “evidence,” and most importantly…
…whatever happened to the costumes worn by the late Dick Durock in the Swamp Thing films? …My guess is that they probably fell apart and were discarded long ago, but who knows? Perhaps they were saved and preserved by some loyal Swamp Thing fan? I’m sure there’s an answer, and my half-hearted Googling did nothing, but perhaps someone out there knows of their fate. Not that I want to wear the costumes around the house or to work or jury duty or anything.
Of course, if I never get my exclusive movie-worn costume, I can always resort to making my own, thanks to the helpful tips from this eHow article:
“Spray the green and yellow spray paint in a random pattern around the costume. This will add more color depth to the costume, and create a sense of the camouflage that an actual swamp monster would require in a swamp.”
Also discovered during my Googling adventures, this site offering my Swamp Thing slippers photo from one of my self-links up there, with these usage hints:
“You can use this FREE Swamp Thing Slippers Picture for many uses such as Graphics Design, Posting on a Social Network like MySpace, Friendster, Facebook or Hi5!”
Yes, please do use my photo of Swamp Thing slippers on your Google Pluses and your GreatestJournals. Here, let me improve it for you:
I mean, that’s what all you kids do with images on your Orkuts and your Voxes, right? “Bling” ‘em up? I’m just trying to stay “hep” with you young “cats.”
