There were lots of bits and bobs from various magazines that were not worthy of being made into one of the full-blown book and magazine PDFs, so I put those into the Magazine Scraps image gallery. There are a few things in here that aren't Ghostbusters related, but I thought they'd be fun to include.

Finally, because I didn't have any other place to put this on the site, here's a Bill Murray article that appeared in the December 24, 2004 edition of Life magazine - which was distributed in various newspapers across the United States. Click on the cover thumbnail to download the PDF. Thanks to Matthew Jordan for help with fixing up the page images.

GHOSTBUSTERS. 1984 "I guess I'm proudest of what we did for the world of fashion....Danny [Aykroyd] was going to write Ghostbusters for himself and John [Belushi], I'm sure. But after John died, he sent me a script that was 47 pages, and it was really funny. I was living in New York, and I remember finishing it at eleven at night. I called him the next day. The deal was put together so fast -- in about 90 minutes they had a director and a caterer."

Interesting pic of Louis in the GB2 poster mag... his 'Spengler' name patch is on the wrong side. I suspect they flopped the pic (as they did with Winston's just above it) and then flopped the patch itself back to true.

Yeah, I knew something looked wrong with those two photos, but the name text wasn't flipped, so I thought I was imagining things. Actually, I didn't know what to make of the "Zeddemore" name tag. The "Z" looks flipped, but other parts don't. I give the magazine editors a little credit for *trying* hide the flips :-)

Yeah, I can't figure out what they did on the Zeddemore patch. It's like they put them in a different order and then flipped them one more time. Shrug.

As for Louis, check the corner pic of the Starlog 145 cover to see the same image in its correct presentation. I knew I'd seen it somewhere.
