July Updates If you’ve stopped by Ecto-Containment in the last week, you probably noticed the black piano theme I’ve been using has been replaced. I’ve been wanting to change the layout again for sometime. I’ve been testing different designs. Depending on when you read this, the design in all likely hood has changed again. For personal, creative, and maybe technologic reasons. While I’ve been doing that I’ve also been preparing a new content… Read More

Earlier in the week I received my order of Ecto Cooler cans (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, June 13, 2016) from Amazon. I thought the following day I’d have my first taste of real (in packaging/branding) Ecto Cooler in at least 25 years. Compared to when I was 8, a few decades later I felt I should wait at least one more day. Both Wednesday and Thursday prior to lunch I was out. When I came… Read More

With the addition of Ghostbusters to Ecto-Containment, really the only piece of the Ghostbusters puzzle (you didn’t tell us their were going to more games) was to write my memories of Ghostbusters II. Which would be different from Ghostbusters. Because of age, The Real Ghostbusters, merchandise, and related experiences around Ghostbusters II premiere. Photo Source: Ghostbusters International

When Ecto-Containment was only about The Real Ghostbusters I kept Ghostbusters content to either Ghostbusters International or during the twenty teens iRich, my personal blog/site. That’s where I wrote almost immediately (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, September 1, 2013) about being a ghosthead. A term coined by Norm Gagnon, one of the original fans. When I expanded Ecto-Containment to be a more general, all purpose Ghostbusters site, a Ghostbusters page was needed. Early in 2016 we return to where it all… Read More

When Extreme Ghostbusters premiered on September 1, 1997 somewhere on my aging 13 inch Sharp TV I was officially an adult. I had graduated high school a little more then a year ago. Those responsible adult things had already been set in motion. I had finally gotten my license, taken a real vacation without my parents, bought a car, was in college, and I had my first not in high school job. Minimum wage,… Read More

If you’ve been visiting Ecto-Containment (then Ectocontainment) since 2011 you’ve seen the growth of the site technological wise and through its up and down periods. Which were also a reflection of what I was personally going through. As 2014 was nearing the end, (prior to the holidays) I was sorta waiting with Ecto-Containment before working on site content as The Real Ghostbusters (and Ghostbusters news) had slowed down from what it was….

While I had a lot of fun with the families Atari, (and earlier game consoles that pre-date Ghostbusters, can’t even imagine) their was still more fun to be had with the Nintendo Entertainment System or as the cool kids still say (back in 1988) NES. My earliest memories of Nintendo came from my downstairs neighbors. Their were two sons, one closer in age and was kinda my friend. One of those kid friendship… Read More

In the middle of November 2014 their was a (geographically speaking) a really local comic book show. Its kinda a con, the organizers call it a show. Unbeknownst to me, this same show was held last year in my town at the same place. As the Jersey Shore Comic Book Show was coming up I knew I’d be there with my Ghostbusters franchise and friends from a second New Jersey franchise. I thought as this con… Read More

Note: Originally appeared at my personal site, iRich. Intro The movie GHOSTBUSTERS (which was the highest grossing comedy until Home Alone ) had a numero uno song to accompany it. Before it made some Halloween sampler in the coming decades, Ray Parker Jr. wrote and sang “Ghostbusters,” which remained #1 on some Billboard charts for 3 straight weeks. Apparently Tina Turner was tired of everyone asking “Who ya gonna call?” and wanted to know “What’s love got… Read More

Note: Originally appeared at my personal site, iRich. Even though I ordered my Ghostbusters flight suit last October and already had the patches I didn’t have the right boots. Actually I never had near screen accurate boots for my Ghostbusters costumes, er uniforms. As an aside the comedic actors basically wore military grade garb because of Dan Aykroyd’s military/”tech” interests. Also their’s the idea that the Ghostbusters can feel like “ghost janitors.” Bustin doesn’t always make… Read More

Note: Originally appeared at my personal site, iRich. On March 1, 2014 after almost 5 months I was finally going to take my Tru-Spec flight suit and Ghostbusters patches to a professional tailor for sewing. Their hadn’t been a rush, of course now that I had a event coming up in a week, time was of the essence. Friend and colleague Bill had similar thoughts and wanted to come up to expedite our “business” needs for… Read More
