Spook Central Elementary Coming Soon (April Fools)

If you came to this site on April 1, 2013, you would have seen this Spook Central Elementary replacement main page instead of the Ghostbusters fansite Spook Central. The Spook Central Facebook page was also altered, too. Clicking on the link at the bottom of the replacement main page would have taken you to this blog post displaying the message below.

Major thanks to Tim Tilley, creator of Spook Central Elementary for not only allowing me to use his creation as my April Fools Day prank, but for getting in on the fun by posting kayfabe messages about it on Twitter and Facebook.


Spook Central Elementary
APRIL FOOLS

No, the Ghostbusters site you've known and loved for over 16 years isn't being replaced by a children's book series. This was just my little way to celebrate the pranking holiday known as April Fools Day. While I may or may not be 100% back to my old computing life thanks to Hurricane Sandy five months ago, I didn't want to pass up on the chance to pull this prank, which I've been planning for a year now.

That said, Spook Central Elementary IS a real thing; and the logo, character images, and description you read on the replacement page are 100% real. They were all created by Tim A. Tilley, an author and artist, who has been trying to get Spook Central Elementary made into a children's book series, or a comic book series, or a series of novels for the better part of a decade now. Heck, I even wrote about it on The Real Spook Central (colored uniforms coming soon) back in 2008. Sadly, as of today it is still unpublished in any form. I guess it's hard to get anything published these days if your last name isn't Rowling or Meyer.

Anyway, Spook Central Elementary (and Tim Tilley) has a pretty substantial presence on the internet, which you can check out at any of the urls below. If you ever wondered why I use "spookcentralgb" as my url on Facebook and Twitter, now you know why. As you can see, I won't be able to use "spookcentral" on Tumblr or Pinterest either :-)
