A figure caught my eye as I passed through one of the supposedly haunted rooms of the supposedly very haunted Merchant’s House Museum in NoHo last week. I gasped, a reflex that was embarrassing even though I was ostensibly alone. “Ah!,” I thought—“Was that a ghost?”
I can’t decide what I think this stream of fog looks like more. Is it a waterfall of ghosts diving off a cliff? A river of angels crossing dimensions? A giant snake made of clouds creeping on the Earth? Because the simple explanation of fog trickling down a waterfall isn’t supernatural enough for me. It’s a beautiful…
The release date for Ghostbusters 3 is still a year away, but director Paul Feig is getting very excited. After tweeting images of the uniforms that will be worn by the new Ghostbusters, Feig just provided a nice annotated guide to the new proton packs. It’s a little confusing!

This prank is such pure evil genius that you can't help but laugh. And feel bad because you'd get freaked out too.
