New Ghostbusters inspired shirts

Two new shirts have popped up – I’m going to go out on a limb and say Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters inspired shirts are the lion’s share of cool t-shirts out there these days – this time one is a nice companion to the Gozarian Society t-shirts from a couple of years back. The other is a GB-esque nod to The Other Smart Phone. And the last is a series of Ghostbuster shirts by a GB lovin’ band.

First up is this awesome Ivo Shandor t-shirt by Dark Bunny Tees;

If the evil red eyes are too spot, the damn thing glows-in-the-dark (and glow-in-the-dark shirts are awesome)! Thanks to Todd for the spot!

The other shirt is this Android / Stay-Puft mash-up by Unstoppable Andy. It’s funny that Stay Puft has replaced Godzilla as the iconic town-stomper, just as Godzilla replaced King Kong (though, I guess King Kong remains the king of building climbing.) Thanks to Ryan for the link, via Phandroid. The design can also be purchased as a poster.

And finally, this one has been sitting in the inbox, waiting for a good chance to share, and this is it! Anthony sent in an email about The Acacia Strain, an American Deathcore band. It turns out, The Strain has a habit of using Ghostbusters imagery in their tour shirts. Have a look to see what we mean.

Apparently the love of GB is deep rooted with the band, not merely a gimmick – Anthony mentioned that the band has an album cover featuring a bear with bloody mouth, having chomped on something. On tour, the band swapped out the bear and swapped in Mr. Stay-Puft. A sugary and horrific image, to be sure.

Big Shiny Robot talks to Big Ernie Hudson

The gang at Big Shiny Robot recently got to sit down with Ernie Hudson to talk about his new film, Doonby. Talk, as it always does, touched on Ghostbusters;

Are you kind of on the outskirts of the talks and all that jazz?

Over the past year or so I’ve talked to the main players. I’ve talked to Sigourney Weaver. I’ve talked to Bill, Danny, Harold and Ivan Reitman. Everybody is like, “Yah, we want to do it, but…” And that’s the “but”. Getting everyone to agree with what needs to be done. I think Bill especially wants to make it something exceptional. What that means to him may be different to what it means to Ivan Reitman or Danny Aykroyd. I know everybody wants to do it. But getting them to agree on a script [is the key]. For me, I think if we just get a script together, so much of it happened on the moment of the set that it’ll be fine. But that’s just my opinion. I’m the last guy *chuckles* that has any input. But I’d love to see it happen.

Be sure to read the entire article and the rest of Ernie’s chat about Ghostbusters at Big Shiny Robot.

Think Geek offering Stay Puft marshmallows! Caffeinated! [UPDATE]

[UPDATE] Think Geek has an official website for the marshmallows – nothing fancy, but it’s nice to see. You can also like the marshmallows on Facebook! Thanks to Joseph for the heads up!


You’ve always wanted them. Now you can have them. Omni Consumer Products, makers of licensed, defictionalized, reverse branded products (meaning, they take fake products and produce the real thing, such as Sex Panther cologne, from Anchorman) are offering Stay Puft Caffeinated Gourmet Marshmallows.

16 squared marshmallows, spiked with caffeine (not sure why, but ok) come in a nice, attractive collectors box. While it’s not quite as awesome as having a bag of marshmallows, like in the movie, it is still awesome in it’s own way. I mean, who here thought someone would actually produce actual Stay Puft marshmallows?

You can order them through Think Geek for $19.99. Big big thanks to Lucas for the heads up!

* Delicious gourmet marshmallows.
* Licensed Ghostbusters product.
* Box is rubbery with a marshmallow feel, for fun after you eat all the mallows.
* 16 square-ish mallows per box.
* Caffeine Content: A bit over 100mg per piece!
* Net Wt.: 6.25 oz
* Box Dimensions: 7″ x 4″ x 2.5″

Happy birthday, Venkmaster – more GB birthday cake!

Happy birthday to you all, for that matter, but Venk sent in some pics and it seemed rude not to wish him a happy birthday. As you’ll see, he made out like a bandit;

I just celebrated my 29th birthday, and everyone, especially my wife, knows I’m a Ghostbusters NUT. I get home, the lights are off, and I hear the opening salvo of the GB theme – a surprise party. My wife not only made me a Ghostbusters birthday cake, which she did a great job of, as you can see, but she even made a spiked green punch she called “Ecto-Cooler.” I opened up my presents, which included two Ghostbusters shirts, a Ghostbusters bag, and eight assorted Bill Murray pins. It was a great night, and I thought I would share it.
