1984. Yes, it was 30 years ago already that Zuul and the gang came to New York, getting the town slimed, marshmallowed, and otherwise messed up. It four crazy guys - Dr. Peter Venkman, Dr. Egon Spengler, Dr. Ray Stantz and Winston Zeddemore (not a Dr.) - who were charged with "Cleanin' Up The Town," and GHOSTBUSTERS became one of the most popular films of all-time. For 31 Days of Halloween here on THE ROCK FATHER, the Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary Collection makes it's way into the countdown, with some fantastic collectibles and items available only for a limited time!

On Record Store Day last year, I stood out in the cold awaiting the chance to buy the 7" glow-in-the-dark pressing of Ray Parker Jr.'s iconic GHOSTBUSTERS theme song. Not to worry, it's available once more:

I have a huge Stay Puft Marshmallow Man in my office. Now I want to get him down to play...

And did you hear? GHOSTBUSTERS is getting a reboot of some sort, with BRIDESMAIDS director Paul Feig set to direct from a script he's co-writing with Katie Dippold (THE HEAT) and with a cast of "funny women."
