I kept seeing references to a new "Ghostbusters NY tour" last week, but it wasn't until Karilee S. posted the vid on the Epbot FB page that I learned what all the buzz was about. If you're a die hard ghosthead like me, then prepare to have a giant goofy grin on your face for at least the next seven minutes:
- Any Animaniacs fans out there?
If so, then you'll love this Mental Floss article: More Than You Ever Wanted To Know About Animaniacs
*sigh* Man, I wish that show was available on Netflix streaming.
Why Nikola Tesla Was the Greatest Geek Who Ever Lived - a funny but extremely informative comic by The Oatmeal. (When I was a kid I once had to pick a historical figure to write a paper on. My dad immediately suggested Tesla, because he was "the most fascinating man you'll ever study in school." Dad was right.)
- 65 Behind The Scenes Photos from Back to the Future (found via ThinkGeek)
In case you've forgotten how eminently crush-worthy Michael J. Fox is. :)
- For my fellow Netflix-streaming subscribers, did you see they've added all of the Jem episodes?!
Oh, and if you're one of those Doctor Who fans who's never seen any of the old stuff, then go watch City of Death on Netflix streaming right now. I'll wait.
Ok, no I won't - but I just watched it the other night, and it's a fabulous example of Tom Baker (AKA "the one with the scarf") and my favorite assistant, Romana as played by Lalla Ward. She's smart and strong and awesome, and I just love seeing Baker with an assistant who's more of an equal than someone he has to bail out or boss around all the time.
PLUS, City of Death features a funny cameo from Monty Python's John Cleese:
...AND the villain is the actor who played Mr. Humphries on Are You Being Served. (Loved him!) So, yeah, lots of awesomeness happening there. GO SEE.
[CORRECTION: It's *not* Mr. Humphries. It's the guy from Indiana Jones that kinda sorta looks like Mr. Humphries. Oops. Sorry, guys! But if it helps any, I also learned in the comments that Douglas Adams of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy fame penned most of the script. Does that help make up for it? :)]
