Ivan Reitman’s Vision for Ghostbusters 3 Makes It Really Suck He’s Not Directing It Anymore

After Harold Ramis died, Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters 2 director Ivan Reitman decided he’d step down from the long-in-development-hell Ghostbusters 3 and let someone else take the reins. And, while I absolutely respect his decision, reading Reitman’s thoughts on what Ghostbusters 3 should be like makes me want to zip across to a parallel universe where he’s still the one in charge of it. To be fair, I already wanted to be there, because in that universe Egon isn’t dead.

Marvel and Star Wars Got in a Twitter Fight Last Night, With a Cameo from Tony Stark

Okay, so yes, the idea of a huge swath of what is culturally important to me being owned by a single company is kind of frightening in an Orwellian sort of way, but on the other hand I guess stuff like this happens too? I’ll get back to you on whether this has lulled me into a false sense of security later.

Women Airforce Service Pilots Got Their Rose Parade Float Yesterday

If we talk about the Women Airforce Service Pilots a lot, it’s only because they were awesome. Classified as civilians working for the Air Force as they performed the same job as (and even trained) enlisted men, unceremoniously dismissed at the end of the war, with their actions unnecessarily classified for thirty years and subsequently omitted from history textbooks.

Star Wars Holiday Sweater is the Greatest Holiday Sweater

Redditor imnojezus’ coworker made this sweater using a felting process. Instead of knitting the whole thing from scratch, she used an existing sweater and added Luke, a lightsaber, the Wampa, and, of course some lovingly rendered Tauntaun parts.

Happy Hothmas!
