Inside Editions is publishing a new Ghostbusters hardcover for an October release. Ghostbusters Ectomobile is a technical manual for Ghostbusters vehicles and equipment. Written by ghostheads Troy Benjamin and Marc Sumerak.
Four years ago I wrote a four page, (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, August 12, 2013) Ecto-Containtment feature about Kenner’s Ecto-Plazm, slime toy alternatives, and something I still enjoy, Nickelodeon Slime!
Like all good things, Gak and Slime! from Nickelodeon weren’t always going to be sold either on-line or in stores. I was a little surprised when I saw on Facebook in the last 4 months Nick brought back slime!, that glows and is shaped like a foreign germ. As opposed to the “secret of the ooze” canister version.
Their is also a secondary shape that reminds me of a frozen popsicle.
At least six months ago as Halloween was approaching I was busy at times getting ready to go on vacation, between future day and a couple days before Halloween. I knew I wanted to write about (then) Halloween Ghostbusters gift bags. In somewhat of a backlog clean up I’ve thought Ghostbusters gifts bags don’t just have to be for Halloween parties and trick-or-treaters.
So 5 days ago I scanned my physical copy of Empire UK from June 2016. As in my search beforehand I didn’t come across a free digital version. My scans were the covers, inside content, and thankfully just the Ghostbusters articles. After converting the files into pretty high-res and very large PDFs they were added (Ghostbusters Firehouse Blog Post, April 15, 2017) to Ghostbusters Firehouse.
Unbeknownst to me and I’m guessing most ghostheads the real, full PDF from Empire UK, June 2016 had been added to some archive of internet. I only found that out after Paul R. from Spook Central sent me an email.
Ghostheads usually can improve on what’s already been done.
I had never heard of Dino Dan: Trek’s Adventures until the last week of December 2016. That would make sense as it’s a children’s show. I was at a Wal*Mart out of state when I saw the title, Dino Dan: Trek’s Adventures – Dino Busters. (Amazon US) I would also see it after being back in Jersey in January 2017. By then ghostheads were sharing it on social media. As their wasn’t much else to talk about with the DVD I didn’t feel the need to write more about it, until now.
A children’s show that deals with dinosaurs, decides to spoof Ghostbusters, with a song, and Ghostbusters like montage. Who wouldn’t want to talk about this?
Recently after writing about UK fast food franchise Wimpy and their Ghostbusters II kids meal commercial (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, March 31, 2017) I was wondering if ghostheads had a digital copy of UK magazine Empire from June 2016. That also had me thinking about MAD Movie Classics (Ghostbusters Firehouse Blog Post, February 7, 2015) special. I asked at Ecto-Containment’s Facebook page if someone had a digital copy of either publication. While their hasn’t been an exact match yet, ghosthead Alex Newborn shared scans from one of his Facebook albums.
Within the one album were scans of Ghostbusters articles from People Weekly, Cracked, and MAD magazines. With Alex Newborn’s permission I’ve saved the files, cleaned them up some where necessary and made PDF files of just the Ghostbusters periodicals.
Six new magazines have been added to the Magazine Rack. (Ghostbusters Firehouse) Where I’ve organized magazines, comics, a coloring book, and more by month and year. Some exceptions apply with Ghostbusters: The Video Game. (Ghostbusters Firehouse)
