One of the greatest movies of all time was Ghostbusters. It was followed up with one of the greatest cartoons of all time, The Real Ghostbusters (one of the most successful Movie-to-TV translations EVER). The mix of comedy, horror, and weird science was white-hot in the Eighties, and still maintains a loyal fan following to this day!!!

I'm not sure I can count the ways 2016 sucked donkey balls with teeth.

We lost so many talented people to the Other Side....from Glenn Frey to David Bowie to Prince to George Micheal to Carrie Fisher AND her mom Debbie Reynolds.

We lost John Glenn, a certified 100% American hero--the first American to orbit the Earth.

And a loss of a more deeply personal level

Through all of that was the lingering stench that perhaps more than any one thing that made 2016 nightmarishly awful:

To top it off, an archaic vestige of a system set up with Eighteenth Century communication technology in mind ensured that this jackass will be on our TV screens for the next four years EVEN THOUGH HE LOST THE FUCKING ELECTION BY ALMOST THREE MILLION FUCKING VOTES!!!




(Okay, Fritz, breathe...calm down...that's not good for your blood pressure...)


I mean, not to say 2016 was completely without awesome...

Well, I liked it anyway...(To my surprise, I admit)

The IDW comic continues; I admit my enthusiasm has waned some, what with the end of Volume 2 practically shouting "NOTHING OF SIGNIFICANCE WILL REALLY HAPPEN TO ANYONE IN THIS SERIES BECAUSE SONY WON'T LET IT!!!" and the "Get Real" miniseries giving us a glimpse of the comic book I wish I was reading, even if it would also be hamstrung by Sony. But even then, Erik Burnham and Dan Schoening are giving us some solid Ghostbusting adventures, so I'm still in it for the long haul.

Have a safe and happy 2017, and hope we're all alive to see 2018.
