Dinosaur Species Named After Zuul

Get ready for part of a fictional essay I could have written in 3rd grade. And if Ghostbusters II had been around in 1985. Dinosaurs use to look like big lizards. Zuul, called a dog is “some kind of big lizard.”

Long before Ghostbusters and afterwards scientists/paleontologists have discovered more details about different species of dinosaurs. While some looked like something the Ghostbusters could have battled I never would have thought a race of dinosaurs would look “close enough” to a Terror Dog to be named after the minion of Gozer.

An armored dinosaur species, technically an ankylosaur once roamed present day northern Montana eating plants like there wouldn’t be a tomorrow.

Ecto-Containing Laser Video

At the very end of January, Paul R. from Spook Central shared a Ghostbusters video in part as ghosthead Lanny White had asked him for it. Prior, I had a lesser quality copy which I had kinda forgotten about.

SFX Museum Vol. 1 is part of a feature that’s on the Japanese Laserdisc version of Ghostbusters. I don’t personally know if was featured on any North American Ghostbusters Laserdiscs.

The SFX feature is in English with Japanese subtitles. The four interviews in the feature talk about Ghostbusters special effects with Ivan Reitman, Michael C. Gross, Richard Edlund, and John Bruno.

With permission I’ve uploaded SFX Museum Vol. 1 to Ecto-Containment’s YouTube channel. It’s also under the newly created Lasers page.

Ecto-Containing Videos

I’ve been watching Ghostbusters videos on-line for at least seventeen years. When it became possible to save said videos in the 21 Century I would when possible. Adding them with just enough organization to multiple Ghostbusters folders either on my computers, former diskettes, and CD-Rs.

I want to share what I’ve collected and organize it on-line for ghostheads through Ecto-Containment’s YouTube channel for historical and entertainment value.

Ghostbusters Gift Bags

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.

From the creative and professional Artsy-Fartsy Mama comes the Ghostbusters® Halloween BOO bag.

Empire Ghostbusters Magazine PDFs

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.
