I thought Oscar’s Dad moved to England


Erik Mrock dropped me a line, after spotting the above credit card, in an ad, at a BP gas station – check the cardholder’s name. Cheeky!

Big thanks to Erik and his friend Rachel, who dug up the image from the Chase bank website. And I seem to recall this from before, but I vaguely recall that there wasn’t any picture proof, so I ignored it. So, to anyone else who may have spotted it months back, a big thumbs up to you, and you should dig harder, like Rachel. 😛

So, is this a BP thing, or a Visa thing? Spotted Dana on any other credit card ads? Lemme know.

[update] Big ups to Beezer, who technically got the first report of this in, back in June (!), but didn’t have the image to go with. Cheers.

[update] Paul at Spook Central has scoured and scrubbed and come up with a LOT more examples of Ms. Barrett and her massive credit card debt. Many images after the jump.

Fourth Titan book hits shelves

Titan’s fourth collection of UK Real Ghostbusters comics, This Ghost is Toast!, hit the shelves a couple of weeks ago. I dropped by my comic local and got my copy. The book, in it’s unique micro-prestige format, contains several comic stories and a random helping of Spengler’s Spirit Guide, including my favorite, “Er, Love.”

Thanks to Randy for reminding me – it’s been sitting in my shoulder bag for a week and I’d totally forgotten about it.

Burn, Baby! Burn! Disco Inferno!

Somewhere in France – you can see close ups here. This in turn inspired me to add a link to all Flickr photos tagged “Ghostbusters.” You’ll notice it on the nav bar, left. Big thanks to Taylor for giving me the idea.

Ghostbusters: On Call

It’s been a bumper crop of fan films these past few years and the new kid on the block is Ghostbusters: On Call. The single sentance pitch goes something like, “Cops meets Troops meets Reno 911.” Sounds good to me. Check out their MySpace page for more info.
