We Know Who We’re Gonna Call
June 7, 2014.
As surreal as the nearly-transparent floating spirits themselves, the cult classic Ghostbusters will officially celebrate its 30th anniversary of being released to the world and being permanently stored into pop culture history immediately thereafter. Names like Peter Venkman, Ray Stantz, Egon Spengler (RIP) and Winston Zeddemore will re-enter our consciousness as the coolest front-line defenders against all things ghastly and marshmallow-like.
Ever since the original and the sequel, visiting a library and a museum has never been the same…
And who could forget about the ECTO-1? Ignoring the relentless chaos that would ensue with the non-stop sirens going off and lights flashing from everyday citizens, but Cadillac could have skyrocketed its sales and boosted its reputation by building and selling the ECTO-1 to the public.
Just a thought.
This momentous occasion will continue throughout the year, but today is a good time to get a little jump-start on the festivities in true ’80s fashion:
(The following dialogue is courtesy of IMDb)
Dr Ray Stantz: You know, it just occurred to me that we really haven’t had a successful test of this equipment.
Dr. Egon Spengler: I blame myself.
Dr. Peter Venkman: So do I.
Dr Ray Stantz: Well, no sense in worrying about it now.
Dr. Peter Venkman: Why worry? Each one of us is carrying an unlicensed nuclear accelerator on his back.
The good old days, when we just did crazy stuff without filling out a silly waiver.
