Black Friday & The Zombie-Like Masses

Image
It's Black Friday...again.
Another year of the masses trampling over terrified retail employees, pepper spraying their obstacles over a high speed blender, pushing little kids to the ground for a high def big screen T.V.
You know...all that holiday cheer stuff!
And for the past couple of years now, it wasn't well enough that it existed on the Friday after Thanksgiving. Oh no! It just HAD to spill into Thanksgiving!

For a period in time I was obsessed with Ghostbusters. I loved the films, the cartoon show...I had the toys and to this day I still await the Hi-C Ecto Cooler when a new Ghostbusters film premiers.
He will forever be an important part of my childhood and he still means so much to me. As a fan of Ghostbusters, I've seen the good and bad in the fandom. But I'm praying that …
