Aykroyd meets everybody but me

Dan Aykroyd was in Calgary this past week to participate in a charity bike rally, promote tequila, and shovel everyone’s drive-way. As a result, everyone but me got to meet Dan Aykroyd. Yes, I’m sulking about it. Two of my pals, Cory and Jody (above) stood in line to see him and word has it that he was “signing everything.” As usual, Ayrkoyd is a good sport with all his fans. Thanks for the pic, Cory.

Teletoon RGB says they’ve got new episodes

After a huge delay, Teletoon got back to cartoon maven Toren about the episodes of RGB they’ll be showing, starting tomorrow. When they got back to me, they didn’t know much of anything. But now they say that they’re showing new episodes (new, as in compared to the episodes they’ve had for a long while now.)

Here’s the episode list, from their website;

The Man Who Never reached Home
The Collect Call of Cathulhu
Bustman’s Holiday
The Headless Motercyclist
The Thing in Mrs. Faversham’s Attic
Egon on a Rampage
Lights! Camera! Haunting!
The Bird of Kildarby
Janine Melnitz, Ghostbuster
Apocalypse, What Now?
Lost and Foundry
Hark Knight’s Day
Cold Cash and Hot Water
The Scaring of the Green
They Call Me Mister Slimer
Last Train to Oblivion
Janine’s Day Off
The Devil in the Deep
Fright at the OK Corral
Ghostbusters of the Year
The Cabinet of Calamari
A Ghost Grows in Brooklyn
The Revenge of Murray the Mantis

That’s 25 episodes, but the Halloween run only has 16 episodes scheduled. So, who knows which ones are showing. Maybe they’ll run more in November.

Another GB screening

It’s October, so the theatrical screenings of Ghostbusters are increasing. I’ll let Chris Gates fill in the details;

“The Golden State Theater in downtown Monterey, California is doing screenings Monday, the 17th through Thursday the 20th. That’s four shows. 8:00 each night, admission is $8. More info at www.goldenstatetheatre.com.”

Don’t miss it – and keep an eye out for Bryan Fear and Co. Those guys tend to show up at all the California screenings. And if you’re quick enough, Young Frankenstein is playing tonight and tomorrow. The original The Haunting is later this month (another worthy viewing.)

GB2 showing in New York

Loews theater is showing scary movies all October and starting today, Thursday the 13th, they will be showing Ghostbusters 2. That’s right, not 1, but 2. The second movie.

Better yet, you can enter to win free tickets – short notice, I know, but I’m not in New York.
