    man he just introduced a kind of afterlife into the story, I don't think having all these characters die is intended to wrap up anything other than maybe the act, which honestly wouldn't be so bad

    Yeah, Geebs. He clearly said "Set phasers to love ME" in the episode. Get it right.

    I'm a published writer and have a very unique and interesting writing style. I'm also sharp and witty. My profile is well-written and hilarious. My messages are likewise brilliant. And I've been doing this stuff for...four or five years. I know what "works" in terms of good internet dating writing. "Works" in the sense of leading to a "date" with a human female.

    hey melding i love me some ghostbusters

    I had all the toys when I was a kid but then my aunt sold them all cause she said they were satanic and wasnt havin non of that in her home.

    edit - okay maybe not all of them, but I had quite the collection.
    I feel you dude.

    I had a bunch of the toys too.

    Even the firehouse and 2 versions of the Ecto-1 (the original and "Ecto-1A" which was just the original with different stickers)

    My mother decided I was too old for the toys one day (I think I was like 7 or 8) and gave them away to a pre-school because she was tired of picking them up. My mother always had this weird perception that everything I liked was for babies. The school she gave them to even told her that the toys were not appropriate for the pre-school because of the small parts and sharp edges so they sold them at a fundraiser.

    As an adult I let her know how screwed-up that was and she apologized.

    This is the same woman that sold my playstation when I went to college.

    Know those moms that keep their kid's room just the way they left it when they leave home? Mine's the opposite of that. Everything I didn't take with me when I left home is history now.

    For the record, she is still a great mom and that's just her most-annoying quirk.

    At least she wasn't a religious nut-job. I'd much-rather have my self-esteem routinely broken-down by the parents I had than to be victimized by religion.

    On the other hand, I think it's silly how some people expect their parents to just keep their stuff forever after they move out. If you value it, take it fucking with you at some point. While you're away at college for a few years? Fine, just communicate to your parents what you'd like them to keep for you so there's no confusion, and ask them to let you know if there's something they're not willing to store for you any longer. But if you're in your 30s, you shouldn't expect your parents to just keep holding onto everything or to read your mind and know what you consider valuable. I say this only because both my brother and sister (in their 40s now) are annoyed that my mom got rid of some stuff a few years back that they wanted. And I'm all, the fuck you want that shit then you get it and keep it in your home. Damn.

    When I was in high school I had watched my stuff get given away or sold at community yard sales enough times to finally decide that if my childhood was going to be taken away from me, I wanted it done on my own terms.

    I started giving away things like my enormous plastic bins of LEGO and LEGO train sets, my Sega Genesis, my books and other belongings myself. Kids I babysat or the daycare center I volunteered at inherited things that they would actually enjoy and use and I didn't have to be made to feel shame every time I had something taken away from me to give to some toddlers. I actually could feel good about it.

    My sister never went through her stuff, and my parents decided that they'd go through it themselves because she obviously didn't care. What they found was bags of trash and boxes of old food that my sister had brought home from summers in college and never bothered to take back. Or, you know, throw away like you should when you have a bag of trash. My sister is weird.

    My mom still asks me sometimes about some of my artwork that I have in a plastic bin in the attic like she wants to get rid of it and I tell her that I'll take it off her hands when we move into a house that has space for it.

    I respect that my parents can decide if they want stuff stored in their house but this is literally two rubbermaid bins sitting in the corner of an attic that is 80% completely bare.

    Woman takes her dislike of "clutter" to a pathological level.

    This isn't something I ever really think about or feel the need to vent except for very rare occasions when something triggers it, like this thread.



    On topic:
    We were talking about actors we might actually enjoy seeing in a third Ghostbusters movie the other night and I decided that in no particular order I wouldn't mind seeing Jason Segel, Donald Glover, Mos Def or Neil Patrick Harris in one of the roles.
    This is purely based on a plot where the older busters raising a new group to fill-in with field work.

    Jason Segel fits the 'heart' quarter of the Ghostbusters team the same way Ray Stanz/Dan Aykroyd did.
    Donald Glover could be the 'heart' (Ray) or the 'mouth' (Peter) and would be a convincing young scientist, seeing as how he's fairly nerdy.
    Mos Def is just a dude I like and he'd be good in the grounded everyman role that Winston Zeddemore/Ernie Hudson filled in the original.
    NPH was a late addition to my potential roles and I see him playing the 'brain' (Egon Spengler/Harold Ramis) as a mix between his role in Starship Troopers and a tiny dash of Dr. Horrible.

    Now the ages here are kinda varied so I wouldn't see all four of these on a team together but I wouldn't be offended by any of them ending up in the movie.

    I'd much rather they not make a Ghostbusters 3 but since it's looking more likely that it's gonna happen I'll at least try to figure out how they could make it and not have it be extremely painful for me to watch.

    So Bill Murray, the last major road-block holding back a third installment in the Ghostbuster's movie franchise hasn't even read the script they sent him. He genuinely does not want to make another Ghostbusters movie or any sequel for that matter.
    Here's a link to a story about it.
    When Stern asked him if he hasn’t read it because he thinks it’s “a bullshit idea”, Murray responded this way:
    There’s a little bit of that. I only made one sequel and it was Ghostbusters 2 and it didn’t end up the way it was presented.

    He goes on to say that he feels kinda obligated to give it a chance because he feels he owes a debt to Ivan Reitman but ultimately wouldn't even consider the idea were it not for that.

    If Bill Murray's heart isn't in it then I trust his judgement. Dan Aykroyd is so attention starved and it makes me sad. He would do literally any movie or television show that crossed his desk, no-matter how demeaning it was to him and all others involved. It's the reason he's been pushing for a Ghosbuters 3 so much, he craves being relevant again like he was in the 80s!

    Ernie Hudson and Harold Ramis are pretty chill dudes and I'm sure they would genuinely enjoy strapping on the packs again. They seemed to have fun with the Video Game after-all.

    If this movie never gets made I will be much happier than if they make it and it's mediocre. I don't want another Star Wars prequel or (heaven forbid) Blues Brothers 2000 in my life. Ghostbusters is too important to me. It reminds me of my mom making chicken soup for me when I was sick in bed or having the best costume out of all the other kids in my grade back when I was 5, the only thing both my parents worked on and made by hand together for me, despite my mother's dislike for sewing.

    If Murray reads it and likes it enough to let it get made then I will be psyched and if he doesn't I know I won't have to deal with a bad movie anyway.

    My bad. You can do online co-op over Live. Maybe the PC version doesn't have the option (like with the 09 release)?

    Also, I hear that if you try to play with AI the ghosts only target the player character while the AI runs in circles and shoots walls.

    edit: Oh and now crossing the streams is good because they combine like in Magicka.

    Fuck. You.

    That's like having a Fight Club game where you earn points by running around telling everyone about Fight Club.

    Not crossing the streams is the first rule of Ghostbusting.
