      • Big C

        There is no gap, only Zuul!

        • Canucks_Rule

          well played sir. and i'm against a 2nd gap thread. i'm sure the chive boys have more than enough pix, but with the single thread it just makes u wanna see it that much more. patience and moderation is a virtue my friend. lol.

    #17 I was really hoping it was actually marshmallow cream.

    • Smarmy B

      That's what she said.

  • Iggy Catalpa

    You mean "Ray Parker Jr. had trouble writing the famous Ghostbusters theme song until he heard "I Want A New Drug" by Huey Lewis and the News."

    • Tillman61

      Thought the same thing. The lyrics were a bitch, but the tune was easy as pie since it had already been written.

    • Simon

      I was thinking about this the other day – I don't think they're all that similar really. There's certainly more similarities between songs out there that have never been legally challenged.

      I understand that I Want A New Drug was used as a placeholder until Parker Jr's song was available, but Huey Lewis must have made a fortune off the back of this on a song that would have largely been forgotten about by now.

    #3 From IMDB: "Candy turned down Wayne Szlaniski in Honey, I Shrunk the Kids (1989) and Louis Tully in Ghostbusters (1984) because he felt his good friend Rick Moranis was better suited for the parts." John Candy was the man.

    • Clowd

      I'm trying to picture Candy as Seymour in Little Shop Of Horrors.

    • biggles

      Damn rights, john candy was a good man.

  • T-gas


  • Duke

    Great post. Doesn't always need to be minded, problems,or DAR to be good. Thanks for the useless Trivia knowledge.

  • Tillman61

    #17 Well, that's what Dickless gets for shutting off the power grid.

  • rsjem1979


    Yes, it's true. This man has no dick.

  • PumaBalls

    • Gonasiphaherpalitis

    #15 Still one of the best movies ever. I would have loved to be one of hands that grabbed Dana Barret.

    • acoupleofboobs

      If you look closely you can see one of her titties pop out!

  • George

    One of the greatest films of all time. Whenever friends come to visit NYC I take them on a "Ghostbusters Tour" of the locations in the film. They love it.

    • KyleGamgee

      You are a scholar and a gentleman, sir.

          In Sask yeah but not in Vancouver because the Canucks suck.

          • Canucks_Rule

            u're right, black forest cake is quite delicious.

    #18 My exact expression when seeing current Macaulay Culkin pictures.

  • Sargent Hulka

    I always thought Ray Parker Jr ripped this off:

    "Soul Finger" by the Bar-Kays, this is closer than I Want A New Drug.

  • Sarge Hulka

    • dan

      which is kind of funny, because this song was in spies like us, also with dan aykroyd.

    Oh man, as a Ghosthead I loves me some trivia! (Granted, most of this I already knew, but it's still fun to hear it all again.)

    #17 is even better when you hear the full details. When they were explaining the scene to Mr. Atherton it was originally going to be 70 lbs. When he heard this, he asked that he see a stuntman do it first. They said "It's just shaving cream…" but he insisted that on the logical basis that 70 lbs. was still 70 FREAKIN' LBS.! So they did test it on the stuntman, and he we thoroughly crushed. After seeing this, Atherton asked that the weight be lowered, but despite 20 less lbs., he was still put flat on his ass. Awesome guy.
