Entertainment providers have figured out that drive-in theaters are the perfect way to socially distance while having some retro-style summer fun. So, while we wait impatiently for Ghostbusters: Afterlife to hit theaters in March 2021, it's been announced that the original Ghostbusters (1984) will be showing at select U.S. and Canadian drive-ins (and a few movie theaters). The showings go from July 1 to July 8 and a special nine-minute message "for the fans" is promised at each one. Locations and showtimes here.

Well, here's something you don't see every day, tiki mugs of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man from Ghostbusters.
Choose the form of the Destructor, and hopefully this jolly giant marshmallow man pops in your head, and hand. Holding approx. 36oz of your favorite ectoplasmic beverage, this tiki-ized manifestation of something that could never ever possibly destroy us is ready for you to trap in your collection.
Currently available from Mondo in limited-to-650 Bone Variant ($55, shown in second to left) and Standard Edition ($50, shown in blue and red). The Crossing the Streams Variant ("orange-wiped" glaze) was created for Designer Con and appears to not be for sale. The Brown Glaze one will be heading to select Alamo Drafthouse theater locations soon.

Crochetverse's Stephanie Pokorny is putting all us moms to shame with the crocheted Halloween costumes she's made for her six-year-old son Jack. Recently her all-yarn Predator costume made the rounds and now she's back with this glow-in-the-freaking-dark Slimer costume. (You may remember when Jack was two, she made an adorable E.T. costume for him.)
Here's a look at her son in the Predator costume:
And here he is in the Slimer costume:
Also, get this, she freehand crochets her costumes. That means she doesn't use a pattern. If you know anything about crocheting, you'll appreciate what an incredible feat this is.
See more of her creations here.

Pawel Zadrożniak's Floppotron is back. This time his "computer hardware orchestra" is tackling the Ghostbusters' theme song. I think even Ray Parker Jr. would approve.
