Since it was announced, people (if men actually count as people) have been losing their shit over the new Ghostbusters reboot simply because the Ghostbusters are all women this time around. If a particularly shrill segment of the male population can’t deal with the notion of proton guns as functioning ghost-capturing tools and not just neon penis extensions, could they possibly deal with a gay female Ghostbuster? A real, you know, lesbian type?
Early Monday morning, filmmaker Harold Ramis died at the age of 69. Ramis wrote or directed some of the most beloved and influential comedies of the past three decades—Ghostbusters, Caddyshack, Animal House, Groundhog's Day, National Lampoon's Vacation, Back to School, Meatballs, Stripes, and Analyze This.
These library goers have no idea what to think seeing people walking around in sheets. But, as the ghostbuster force appears and breaks the solemn atmostphere in the library, this prank seems to be much appreciated.
The famed spirit exterminators Ray, Egon, Winston and Peter have been constant pop culture figures since their cinematic introduction in 1984. The Real Ghostbusters brought the crew to Saturday Morning with engaging scripts and the voice of Garfield.
The trustees of the estate of Chris Farley agree: The deceased beloved portly comedian would really enjoy DirecTV, were he not dead and all. Also, David Spade is available for kids' birthday parties and cheap blowjobs. Sleazebags.
Now that talk on a possible, long-gestating Ghostbusters sequel is heating up, MTV spoke to Sigourney Weaver about her potential involvement (when will someone call Peter MacNicol? We're dying over here!). Weaver admitted that she's supposed to call Bill Murray next week about the project, adding, “I would hope that my little [movie son] Oscar would be one of the Ghostbusters even if I’m not in it!” Careful, Sigourney — you're giving producers some Seth Rogen casting suggestions. Weaver also revealed that she's been talking to Ridley Scott about a potentially radical overhaul of the Alien franchise:

The grunge icon floated from boutique to boutique, leaving behind a trail of fine green viscous goo while on a mission to find a pair of killer boots and jeans. Shelley Jones, an unsuspecting customer, was harassed by the malevolent force and wasn’t too happy about it. Jones said, “I’m trying on these jeans and I’m partially dressed when out of nowhere Courtney Love’s torso pops through the side of the dressing room mumbling something about a size 4 jeans. I didn’t know what to do. I tried to call for help, but what kind of help are you going to get at a snotty boutique?” [Photo Credit: X17] *A Call To The Bullpen is a work of fiction.

Dogs and Cats Living Together: "If I could interest Seth [Rogen] and Judd [Apatow] to be part of [Ghostbusters 3], that would be an absolute dream," says OG Ghostbuster Dan Aykroyd to E!, according to Slashfilm. The formerly proton pack-clad Aykroyd reveals that two writers are currently working on the sequel, though at this point, there is no information on how much male full-frontal nudity (or how many ad-libbed pop culture references) the Apatow-aspiring trio plans to include.

While adolescents and adolescent-at-heart adults across the nation anticipate Grand Theft Auto IV and its slightly skewed New York, we pause to remember the richly detailed and intriguingly off-kilter New York of the 1984 Activision classic Ghostbusters. A New York where Park Avenue runs alongside Church St, and they both go crosstown. A New York where Zuul may be found on the corner of Union and 3rd (3rd Ave? Street? Who knows!).
