Who you gonna call?

Hey—I don’t know if you realize this, but there is kind of a lot of stuff to see and do in Gettysburg. I really meant to come back earlier than this, but, well, then I remembered that I was on vacation. And also that there were Civil War artifacts to be explored and ice cream to be licked. So.

To make it up to you, I’m here to tell you that… I ain’t afraid of no ghosts. And bustin’ makes me feel good. If you’re a fellow child of the 80s, by now you’re humming along, yes? Well, start up your nostalgia machine and then plug in your Wii, because today I’m giving away a copy of the brand spanking new Ghostbusters: The Video Game for play on the Nintendo Wii. I think it looks like a whole lot of fun, and not just because I saw the movie twenty-seven times. Ahem.

Want to win it? Of course you do! So here’s what you do: First, you go read the contest rules and regulations; then come back here and leave a comment on this post by 11:59 p.m. Eastern (8:59 p.m. Pacific) on Wednesday, July 8th, 2009 to be entered. Winner to be determined by random number generation and whether or not you’re the Gatekeeper. (And also if you both spot and appreciate the cheesy movie references in this post.)

And remember: Whatever you do, don’t cross the streams. Seriously.

Okay, I’m done. Go!


  1. My kids just recently went on a “cheesy movies from mom’s childhood” kick where they watched and (in spite of themselves) enjoyed Ghostbusters, the Goonies, ET, and the original Star Wars films. I know they will be hitting me up for this game as son as they realize it’s available! I would love to win it and tuck it away for a rainy day….

  2. OOoh, the Wii is hiding in the closet until dad’s birthday… this would be great.

  3. I’m so in for this one.

  4. Who you gonna call…MIR!

  5. Phil would love it.

  6. Pick me!

  7. me please

  8. Ray, I crossed the streams, Ray!

    Oh, count me in, please!

  9. I loved that movie!


  11. I would love to win this! 🙂

  12. OOh I have a 3 year old who has been asking for this one!

  13. My kids would love a new Wii game.

  14. I ain’t ‘fraid of no ghosts.

  15. Me and Wii would love to play. And, FTR, my daughter IS afraid of ghosts. Does that mean she won’t play with me?

  16. There is no Dana, only Zuul.

  17. Question: Where do these stairs go?
    Answer: They go up!

  18. OK, my birthday is this week and I’ve NEVER won anything on your site despite my million entries. Maybe this one is the one. {fingers crossed}

  19. so fun!

  20. This looks great!

  21. My three-year-old is a raging fan of “Ghostbusters” even though he’s only seen the thirty-second clip of Slimer gorging on hot dogs.

    What can I say? The boy has taste. 🙂

  22. Who you gonna call? I hope it’s me.

  23. There are such great ice cream parlors in Gettysburg. I be jealous.

  24. Oh goodness, I was just watching Knight Rider (yep, on that retro network), and some cheerleaders were dancing/aerobicizing/warming up to the Ghostbusters’ Theme Song (why? I don’t know. I even said aloud to my husband, “Why are they dancing to Ghostbusters?” It was very odd.)

    What weird timing you have, Mir.


  25. I just got the wii and am about tired of the sports package. I need a new game!

  26. Got a Wii for my DH’s upcoming 40th…we’d love a game to go with it:)

  27. Can you believe I am a child of the 80’s and I never saw that movie? I promise, if I win, to watch it. Pinky swear.

  28. Yay! Love your contests, Mir, even if I never win them!

  29. Too funny, this was just on the other night. I made my dh dvr it as I have NEVER seen that movie!! I’ve always wanted to…but just never did! My kids would love it!! My youngest has watched the movie a couple of times and loves it.

    Thank you for a chance.

  30. Slime me Mir, please?

  31. Who you gonna call, me please!

  32. PLEASE!!!

  33. This would be great since we just got a Wii! Thanks!

  34. When I taught daycare and potty trained the 3 year old boys, several would have to go at once – and did. I always told them not to cross the streams. Seriously.

  35. When I think Ghostbusters, I think marshmallows.

  36. Love this movie, I am sure we would love the game. Sounds like fun.
    “Listen…do you smell something?” quote from when they were in the library.

  37. Sounds great!

  38. This would be a great gift!

  39. busting makes me feel good! Thanks

  40. This would be so cool.

  41. This game is supposed to be awesome! I know it’s gonna end up in our house one way or another, so FREE is the price I’d like to pay!

  42. Only 27 times? It was the only movie that was on TBS for what – 3 or 4 years? I’m in!

  43. Hubs’s favorite line: shh-shh! Do you smell that?

  44. I’m in!

  45. How totally cool! Thanks!

  46. we love this move. No doubt the game would be a huge hit for us!

  47. Not only would my kids love it, but I betcha mom & dad would too!

  48. Hope you are having a great vacation! Ghosts Busters…plasmic!

  49. i would love this one!

  50. I have degrees in both psychology and para-psycholgy – pick me!

  51. Thanks SOO much for getting that song stuck in my head 🙂

  52. We like ghosts! Pick me!

  53. I love it!

  54. My daughter’s competition team did their dance to Ghostbusters this year, so she’s now a rabid fan. This would make me a hero 🙂


  55. ZUUUUL! Me please. Still haven’t gotten BugMan to sit through the entire movie but he seems to like what he has seen. And I need a new wii game I might be able to play like a grown-up. It is very sad when a six year old beats you at EVERYTHING!

  56. yeehaw! 🙂

  57. Count me in!

  58. Would love this game to go along with the new Wii!

  59. I don’t think I got all the references… Guess I should watch the movie again! Thanks for the opportunity!

  66. 🙂

  67. If I won I’d puff up with pride just like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man!

  68. Yay!!!

  69. Oh, yes! We would love to win!

  70. OMG, Ghostbusters is one of the most quotable movies of all time. Perhaps, in fact, THE most quotable movie of all time!

    “If someone asks if you’re a god, you say ‘Yes’!!!”

    If someone asks if you want to win the Ghostbusters game? I say Yes!!

  71. Very cool. I love Ghostbusters!

  72. I’m humming and now I want a marshmallow.

  73. I am pretty sure I will be singing that song all day now. It will be made better, however, if I also win the game.

  74. please pick me!!! i want it as much as my kids:)

  75. Cool contest!

  79. My nephew would love this.

  80. and don’t forget the great cartoon version (the REAL ghostbusters of course) … I was a bit young for the original movie, but I’ve seen it since!
    (and would love to try the game)


  81. ghostbusters! yeah!

  82. Gotta love the wii!

  83. Um… I’m a guy… so that would make me the Keymaster, right??? 😉

    And no-one has mentioned a Rick Moranis line yet?? Lewis Tully absolutely kills me…

    And the line that best dates that movie for us working stiffs?
    “This job definitely aint worth Eleven – Five a year…”
    – Winston Zedemore

  84. I caught the last hour of Ghostbusters II a few weeks ago. I was channel-surfing and then I just could NOT turn away. So here’s hoping my random number generator luck is better this time!

  87. My kids just watched Ghostbusters for the first time this weekend!

  88. I’m not afraid of no ghosts… choose me!

  89. We just got our Wii and my husband would LOVE this!

  90. Yes please!

  91. Oh, man! I’m dying to get this. Alas, I just splurged on Mario Kart so I thought I’d have to wait a while before buying Ghostbusters. Please pick me so I can have both now!

  92. Well, crap, I’m the Keymaster, not the Gatekeeper. Do I still get a chance? I even cleaned out my fridge yesterday. 😉

  93. Sweet! My husband would love to play this…and since it’s for the Wii, I could join him (unlike our PS3…)

  99. Pretty please, Random Number Generator?!! 🙂

  100. My son was 5 when the movie came out. We saw it several times in the theater, and one of those visits tied in with meeting and dating my husband. When I got my son the video he was disappointed to hear that it could wear out after 100 viewings… “Only 100 times?!”

  101. I bet it is a fun game.

  102. I have bad associations with the movie, having sat through it while in labor (7 years ago, not when it originally came out), but I’m sure my husband would love it!

  103. Cats and dogs living together!

  104. I ain’t afraid of no ghosts either!

  105. My nephew would love it!

  106. It won’t slime my Wii, will it?

  108. My nephew would love this…tie it in with the DVD and I’ve got a gift to wrap!


  109. Ahhhh! I want it. I’m totally going to buy that anyway so you might as well give it to me for free.

  110. “That’s the bedroom, but nothing ever happened in there.”

    “What a crime.”
