Tonight: Ghostbusters 👻

thegbsecto1pic

   In 1984, I was 14, and I can remember going to the drive-in to see this with my Dad. While I cannot recall specifics of the evening, I know that we had a great time. I was very familiar with Murray & Akroyd even though I had only watched SNL on a few occasions while they were members of the cast. As for Ramis & Moranis… I was all about those two, since I was an SC-TV fan by this point. I am a still a little bummed that John Candy couldn’t be a part of the production, but it all worked out in the end. With the group being rounded out with an anchor who represented the everyday guy being thrust into the madness of busting ghosts, Ernie Hudson was a perfect addition to the team. I still haven’t watched the newest Ghostbusters film, for no other reason than I just haven’t gotten around to it. I will, eventually ☺👍🏽

The Vision by Ron Frenz

   I am absolutely digging this piece by Ron Frenz. From what I’ve seen of his other work, he uses a black rectangle as an interesting point of contrast. I am finding his portfolio inspiring. Check out some of his commissions here 👉 catskillcomics.com/frenz.htm and here 👉 comicbookcatacombs.blogspot.com/2011/05/ron-frenz-gallery.html

Disney’s New DuckTales Quacks Me Up!

   DuckTales. This is something that I watched when I was 17. Yep. The stories were entertaining, and I enjoyed the classic Disney animation style. Yet, I am not here to talk about the past. No. I am here to praise the brand new series! The first episode (posted above) is available on YouTube for free. It has convinced Mrs. Multiverse, and myself, that we need to purchase the season on Google Play.

The new art style is inspired, the characters are multidimensional, and the story is amazing.

   But don’t take my word for it 😉

Batman: Ascending Knight

One:12 Collective’s Batman: Ascending Knight by Mezco Toys

   This Batman is gorgeous. It updates his original 1939 look, perfectly. At only $80 (US) it seems pretty affordable for what you get. Will I pick one up? Probably not. I don’t usually go in for higher end collectibles. Vintage is where my money usually ends up 😉  As they say, never say never, though.
