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…)

Getting to know your Ghostbusters! Part Thirteen: Joe Hennessy

Sunday, August 22nd, 2010

joeWelcome back! It’s been a bit of a wait, but now we present to you Joe Hennessey!

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

Joe: Well, I’m 27 years old, born and raised in Allentown.
occupation-wise, I’m a Computer Assisted Telephone Interviewer, or (CATI) for short. My job is to conduct research surveys with respondents over the phone, and collect data for our analysts on a variety of topics ranging from the economy, to commercial products, to healthcare. I know I’m making it sound a lot more glorious than it really is. I mainly just drink tea, and read a script from a computer screen all day long.

As for my interests and hobbies… I’m a huge trekkie, I collect action figures and comics, and I’m also an artist, not yet professionally, but I hope to maybe earn some side money with it eventually.

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

Joe:  Hmmm, Y’know… I forget when I joined officially, I just know my first event was in January of 2010. What inspired me to join, was the fact that I wanted to create my own Ghostbusters franchise in the Lehigh Valley, however it didn’t really get off the ground, however Matt Burkit suggested that I join the PGB, so I sent in an inquiry e-mail, and before I knew it… Here I am, and the rest is history.

Getting to know your Ghostbusters! Part Eleven: Anthony Snow

Saturday, July 17th, 2010

ajIt’s that time again for Getting To Know Your Ghostbusters!  This week we spotlight one of more recent members, Anthony Snow.

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

Anthony: Well, lets see, I’m pretty much your average, mild-mannered guy. I just recently turned 22, so I’m feelin’ like an old fart compared to my other friends, especially because they are all in their senior year of college, and I plan on starting my freshman year next year. UGH! I currently work at CVS as a shift supervisor. My other hobbies besides busting ghosts would be reading really old literature (Mostly Holmes stories), and delving in to forensics as I plan on pursuing a career as a Forensic Anthropologist.

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

Anthony: I’ve been with the group since about January of this year. I used to work with the Great and Mighty Paul, and he introduced me to this whole lifestyle. (more…)

Getting to know your Ghostbusters! Part Ten: Rosemary Ward

Wednesday, July 14th, 2010

roseWelcome back friends, fans, and family, to this our tenth edition of Getting to know your Ghostbusters. This weeks edition is a bit late, but we’ve had so many events the past week and a half that things have been hectic. Fear not…as part 11 is already done and ready to be uploaded this weekend!

This time out we spotlight on our other girl Ghostbuster: Rosemary Ward!

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

Rose: Besides spending with my Tony and cuddling our two black kitties..I spend a lot of time costuming, collecting toys, going to conventions, reading comics..etc. As you can tell I’m a real nerd girl, but I enjoy it. Of late I’ve also been designing and working on a ‘Retro Fan Site’ That will be mostly geared towards the eighties.

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

Rose: I’d say about a year. Tony told me about it and asked if I’d mind joining in. I’ve always enjoyed Ghostbusters, even had a Ghostbusters scrap book as a teen along with some of the Real Ghostbusters toys back in the day. So I thought it was a great idea :)

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

Rose: I had the Jumpsuit with patches first, that was the easy part and I got all of that for my first outing. For the longest time my proton pack was just an old piece Tony put together from a vacuum cleaner. I use to joke about it and say “It use to suck dirt and now it sucks ghosts!” (more…)
