A few weeks back the Ghostbusters of Alberta and the Ghostbusters of British Columbia met up at Vancouver’s VCON 36 and they invited me along to an evening con screening of Ghostbusters, during which we did nothing but talk over the entire thing, dissecting it to a crazy degree. I brought along 30ish minutes of a video clip-mix, filled with odds and ends, including a few hard-to-find bits. And, seeing as it’s Ghostbusters season, Halloween, I figure I’ll share with those of you that couldn’t make it.
GBFans has slashed prices a lot of GB merch, some as drastically as selling them for free (you only pay shipping) – go check it out!
How It Should Have Ended takes movies, finds one or two plot points where the movie could have gone another way, and animates the results. They came up with three for Ghostbusters…
Years back, MTV added Mick Smiley’s music video, Magic, to their online archives – exciting, as it was a rarity. Then MTV geo-locked their archives, leaving the rest of the world out in the cold. Then someone added a copy to YouTube (all good things come to YouTube.)
But that’s not all – Marc Tyler Nobleman, author of a number of great books on pop culture history, managed to track down and briefly talk to Mick himself, giving us a small look behind the scenes of the Ghostbusters soundtrack (for example, Mick doesn’t think the video aired on MTV… and yet they seem to think they did!)
Nice work, Marc!
