Getting to know your Ghostbusters! Part Twenty One: Julia Phipps

Wednesday, December 29th, 2010

juliaHappy Holidays everyone! As I write this, we’re at the halfway point between Christmas and New Years. I hope some of you got some cool Ghostbusters goodies from Santa!

As we debate on what our next charity should be, allow me to break up the quiet around here with our Q&A with recent addition Julia Phipps!

PGB: Julia, tell us a little about yourself. Who are you? What do you do besides Ghostbusting? Any other hobbies or interests?

Julia: I am a 24 year old college student. I attend a local community college where I’m majoring in Business Administration. I’m scheduled to graduate with an associate’s degree this spring. Then, I’ll work on a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Accounting. I’m pretty involved on campus and I’m also employed by the school. I play a lot of video games in my free time and I collect comics. I love ice hockey!!! Go Flyers! I played for about 6 years (even played on my high school’s boy’s team) but can’t seem to find the time or money for it now. (more…)

Getting to know your Ghostbusters! Part Twenty: Dan Ritchie

Tuesday, December 21st, 2010

danWelcome back everyone! Sorry this is a few days late, but we’ve been busy the past weekend. While many Ghostbuster franchises slow down after Halloween, we’ve been busy hitting the cold and windy streets of the City Of Brotherly Love. Why? Raising money for the Salvation Army’s Stockings For Kids of course!

In the end we raised and donated $704.00 for the worthy cause. That brings us to the next member to be profiled. Danny Ritchie’s been a pretty hardcore recent addition, making almost every gathering we’ve had since his joining. He made a very strong showing for this most recent cause and now I’m proud to get to ask him some questions!

PGB: Dan, tell us a little about yourself. Who are you? What do you do besides Ghostbusting? Any other hobbies or interests?

Dan: Where to start? I’m Dan Ritchie. I’m 23 years old and have lived in Philly all my life. I’m a cartoonist and i attend the Art Institute of Philadelphia. I want to be a professional cartoonist and make comic books. My dream is to have my own Ghostbusters comic book, but for now I work at Best Buy and love it. I just need to focus on finishing school.

Getting to know your Ghostbusters! Part Nineteen: Dana Michael

Monday, December 6th, 2010

dana2Yes that’s right. It’s the weekend, so it must be time for another “Getting To Know Your Ghostbusters“. This time we switch it up a bit with our only member who doesn’t actually dress in a uniform! That’s right it’s time to have a word or two with our “Janine Melnitz”, Dana Michael!

PGB: So Dana, tell us a little about yourself. Who are you? What do you do besides wearing a red wig and spending time standing out in a field of Khaki? Any other hobbies or interests?

Dana: I like to eat chinese food alot. I was just doing that before I answered this Q and A. Apple, the owner of my favorite chinese restaurant in Philadelphia (”South Garden”) always gives me extra food. God bless that woman. Granted there are coupons in the menu for such a hook up, but I consider it a friendly gesture. (more…)

More GB3 Rumors

Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

gb3It’s that time again… time for more GB3 rumors!

The most recent rumors include an open casting call for the third movie, and some possible lead actors.  With a possible story of a new group of Ghostbusters taking over, possible leads include Anna Farris, Bill Hader, and Will Forte!  Bill and Will are from Saturday Night Live, which might make sense since Aykroyd and Murray made their mark there early in their careers.  There’s also talk of a shooting schedule for Spring 2011.  It all sounds great, but we still haven’t see the “green light” for the project. 

What do you think?  Are you excited for a new movie?  All I can say is that if there is a third movie, the PGB will be going ALL OUT!

Proton Charging has all the info, check it out!

Getting to know your Ghostbusters! Part Eighteen: Dan Tyson

Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

dantWelcome again to the next epic chapter in the Getting To Know Your Ghostbusters series! This time we talk to one of our members with the longest commute. Good thing he has an Ectomobile to help him get from Tamaqua to Philly! Without further ado, Dan Tyson!

PGB: Dan, tell us a little about yourself. Who are you? What do you dobesides Ghostbusting? Any other hobbies or interests?

Dan: Well, I’m Daniel. I’m 26 years old. Born and raised in Andreas. I work at Allen Organ company as a pick and place machine operator in the surface mount department. Basically if you’ve ever looked at the board in your computer or cell phone for example and saw the tiny parts mounted on it, that’s what I work with. When I’m not working I help as an assistant scoutmaster with my dad at our local troop where I received my eagle scout. We do different fundraising and community service work during the year kind of like the PGBs. If I’m not doing any of that I can usually be found in front of the computer playing games. (more…)

PGB: Dan, tell us a little about yourself. Who are you? What do you do besides Ghostbusting? Any other hobbies or interests?

Dan: I’m a musician and photographer, and was recently hired by Apple as a Family Room Specialist. On my down time I enjoy watching movies, playing PS3, and collecting spores, molds and fungus

PGB: How long have you been with the group and what made you decide to join?

Dan: I’ve been with the group for about 5 months. I wanted to join for a few reasons, first these are a great bunch of guys who are patient, helpful and knowledgeable. I’ve never met anyone else who could match or one up me on my Ghostbuster trivia! We also support great and bring attention to relevant causes.

Dan: I began building my uniform around the same time I joined the group. (more…)

Monday, November 15th, 2010

lamanchass-018Hey there! Another weekend, another new installment of Getting To Know Your Ghostbusters! This week we take a moment to talk to one of our recent additions, Ally Scanlon.

PGB: Ally, tell us a little about yourself. Who are you? What do you do besides Ghostbusting? Any other hobbies or interests?

Ally: Hi! I’m Ally Scanlon. I am a full time nanny by day and a ghostbuster by night. I love art and music and most of all hanging out with people. I love to play pool in my free time and I hate to admit it but I’m addicted to facebook. Lol.

PGB: How long have you been with the group and what made you decide to join?

Ally: I’ve been in the group a little over a month. My good friend AJ joined earlier this year which gave me the idea. I love helping people and this is the most fun and nerdy way I can think of doing so!

PGB: When and why did you begin building your GB uniform and gear?

Ally: I started my uniform a few days after I ’signed up’ I guess you could say (and by started I mean I ordered it. Lol. The Dickies company isn’t as snappy as one would like.) I havent started any gear yet BUT in the next coming week or so I’m going to make my ecto-goggles and hopefully (fingers crossed) start building a trap! (more…)
