Ghostbusters- Passing The Torch.

Okay, 21 days to go until GB16.
To keep myself from climbing the walls, I'll do three more GB posts for each week until we get there to give myself a chore to focus on.
I have no idea what the other two will be, but I came up with this one last night.

In "In defense of the Ghostbusters reboot", I picked apart the "Waaahhh!! I wanted an original cast reunion!!", argument.
A variation on that is "Waaahhh! I wanted a torch pass!!".

You got both.

The Jimmy Kimmel reunion was the torch pass!

Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Annie Potts, and Bill Murray even touched the new cast's craniums like they were passing their power to make it ritualistic.

See here and here for the complete reunion.

"Waaahhh! That's not canon!".

*Sigh* oh, for chrissakes, I'll make it canon......

Okay, the GB1/GB2 cast and the GB16 cast were on Kimmel....

The GB1/GB2 cast were on Today Show interviewed by Al Roker, cuz he's a big time Ghostbusters fanatic, and it was the 30th anniversary at the time.

Then, Al Roker did a set visit to GB16 last summer, and it was released a couple months ago, after an embargo.

..and, Al Roker, as himself, on The Today Show is in GB16, and even made it to the trailer.

Al Roker and Today Show are canon, the set visits are canon, so Kimmel is canon.

"But not original 2 films canon! Only reboot universe canon!".

Oh, son of a bitch.....

All right....

In the music video for Ray Parker Junior's "Ghostbusters", the guys in character dance down the street with Ray Parker.

In Ghostbusters 2, Ray and Winston dance to the song at a children's party.

That makes the song canon, and thus the music video canon, probably fitting in after the end of GB1.

Ray Parker Junior played the song on Kimmel, and both casts danced to it.
That's an even more powerful mojo ritual than the cranium touch.

Boom, canon, done.

There's your torch pass, it happened.

The (fourth) YEAR Of Hembock!


Since last time, Harry turned 27.

And in that, I confirmed there will in fact be a 5th Harry book to come out after Quantum Dissolve is done.

And, that the anniversaries will count towards bonus material for that.

So...gotta make this count for something....


How about this?
I wish permanent full body gout on anyone who promised to buy the quadrilogy and didn't.
You know who you are.
You're just goddamned lucky curses aren't real.
If they were, you'd be so fucked right now.
But, so would a lot of even shittier people that deserve it, and we'd probably live in a better world right now.
And all those assholes pray.
So, thank your lucky stars that life is actually meaningless.

Anyhoo, see you next year! :-D

Ghostbusters: Ecto Force.

Continuing "The Ghostbusters of Christmas future".

It's official, the TV series mentioned by Ivan Reitman will be animated, is called Ecto Force, and is slated for 2018.

Pasting the press release....

A brand new animated television series, GHOSTBUSTERS: ECTO FORCE, will further expand the Ghostbusters cinematic universe and focus on a new generation of Ghostbusters in the year 2050 who capture ghosts around the world with help from local teams—and some very cool gear! The younger-skewing Sony Pictures Animation project is being creatively spearheaded by Ivan Reitman and his production company Ghost Corps. GHOSTBUSTERS: ECTO FORCE is eyeing an early 2018 debut.

So, GB16 this year, animated movie 2017, Ecto Force 2018.
The GBCU is taking shape.

Retro-linking this to both the 32nd anniversary, and "Christmas Future".

Happy belated anniversary, Ghostbusters 2 &3.

Thursday June 16th, wasn't just the release day of the GB16 international poster,  it was also the 27th anniversary of "Ghostbusters 2", and the 7th anniversary of "Ghostbusters: The Video Game".

There we go, that little oversight is corrected.

Retro linking to the 32nd anniversary of GB1 in comments....

Ghostbusters 2016 poster!! (Part 2)

The first one.

International one.

Aw, man, that one's so much more dynamic and cooler than the American one!

Suuure, wait until I print out the other one for my wall.
Ah, well.

Anyway, retro-linking to the 32nd anniversary via comments.

The shit on my walls (Part 19).

Part 18.

Yeah, I couldn't resist...

Ghostbusters trilogy.

This took a little reshuffling.

Already had GB1, printed GB2 and GB16.

Bumped them down, and replaced the mosaic of superhero/sci-fi documentaries, the mosaic of "Never Sleep Again", and its spinoffs, and the mosaic of VHS documentaries.

Bumped the "Never Sleep Again", mosaic up to where GB1 used to be, and the VHS mosaic up next to it, which replaces the Hoggies menu.

Threw out Hoggies, and superhero documentary mosaic.

Doesn't matter what I physically toss out, I still keep the files.

Anyhoo, ahhh, that's better. :-D

Ghostbusters 2016 poster!!

About damned time.
"The Force Awakens", put theirs out 2 months before the flick came out.

It's pretty much the image I grabbed for the 32nd anniversary.
I had my fingers crossed, because I dug/dig it.

Now, to retro-link this to that post via comments....
