Savin’ The Domain

When I wrote December 3, 2016 personal update I wasn’t planning on renewing the domain name for Ghostbusters International. Which did or was going to expire today.

I felt at the time with the site’s inactivity and what has been going on in my personal life, better at the time to save the price of approximately 4 cups of that star place’s coffee. I usually make my own coffee anyway.

It still made sense to wait and be somewhat responsible when it comes to fun. The renewal price has been there from multiple sources (i.e.: gift cards) going back at least two years.

As of today ghostbustersintern.com has been renewed for another year. As I move forward I’d like to get back to updates. It depends on the real responsibilities.

Ghosts From Our Past Prop Cover

In Ghostbusters: Answer The Call Drs of particle physicists Abby Yates and Erin Gilbert wrote a book titled Ghosts From Our Past: Both Literally and Figuratively: A Study Of The Paranormal. (GBI Blog Post: December 19, 2015)

To tie into the new in-universe of Ghostbusters: Answer The Call, author Andrew Shaffer wrote the real book. Which had a hardback and more common (we think) paperback version. Its cover (probably because it had to) lets ghostheads know its a Ghostbusters: Answer The Call movie related book.

For most people that aren’t ghostheads that’s good enough. When you’re a ghosthead, good enough is well not good enough. That’s where the NYC Ghostbusters come in.

They created an original prop replica cover which can be used with the movie books or another book if one wanted to just display it among their collection.

Ghostheads can either download the regular cover or an oversized cover from the Ghosts From Our Past website.

Ghostbusters Battle For New York Dubai Ride Experience

Unfortunately because of Dubai geographic location for many of us we won’t be able to experience Dubai Parks & Resorts Ghostbusters Battle For New York (GBI Blog Post, May 6, 2016) in person.

Fortunately because of technology and theme park specific web sites, we can at least somewhat visually experience what its like to “battle” ghosts there.

Theme Park HD recorded for ghostheads (and theme park attendees) about a 5 minute walk through of this trackless Ghostbusters ride.
