TOMORROW, the brand new Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters 2 Blu Rays are released to honor the original movie’s release 30 years ago!! We can’t wait to get our hands on them, not just because it’s an essential addition to our library, but because a handful of art from our traveling exhibit is a bonus feature!! YES!
To celebrate this release, we will be restocking a VERY SMALL AMOUNT of anniversary prints online FOR THE LAST TIME EVER at Ghostbusters30th.com tomorrow afternoon. Some posters had purchases fall through from invalid payments, duplicates or mistakes, and those will become available for a very short time. Also for the first time ever, we will be placing the original artwork and a limited number of show exclusive prints, that were only visible at the exhibit stops, at gallery1988.com.
So go pick up the new Blu Rays for two of the greatest comedies ever (WE CAN ARGUE FOR GHOSTBUSTERS 2 ALL DAY, SO DON’T EVEN TRY) and then buy some of the art before it’s literally gone for good!!
And thank you to our friends at Sony for such an exciting experience. We’ve now been an extra feature on 3 DVD/Blu Rays: LOST, Breaking Bad and Ghostbusters. Not bad at all.
Get ready for what’s next…

Finally got around to wrapping up this portrait of everyone’s favorite astrophysicist. With his huge impact on new generations of aspiring scientists, I knew I wanted the background to be children’s space drawings. With my 6 year-old niece’s planetary masterpieces as inspiration, I did my best imitation with my left hand. (prints available here)

the person doing the christening is dr. tam o’shaughnessy, ride’s partner of 27 yrs. sally ride was not just the first woman and youngest person in space: she was also the first lesbian in space - likely, the first lgbtq person in space.
I know we shared this before but finding out that this ship was christened by Dr. Tam O’Shaughnessy was something that required re-sharing.
A few years ago, my niece Katelynn was born. When she was old enough, she would smile up at me and reach for me, calling me ‘Tona.’ She absolutely broke my heart open, and all the love I had to give poured out of me. When we spend time together, she is the singular focus of my attention and affection. At some point later I realized, this is how my grandmother had always felt about me. I can see her side of it now, how I looked through her eyes when I was little.
To say “my grandmother died” isn’t something that accurately explains the loss of this relationship in my life. To hear it, people will inevitably color it with thoughts and feelings on their own relationship with their grandparents. Make assumptions if they don’t know how strong our bond was, what role she played in my life. I do not deny my love for or the influence of my other parents and grandparents at all. But no other force shaped my personality, outlook and direction of my life as much as my relationship with my grandmother, for better or worse.
In her eyes, my father and I hung the moon, we were incapable of doing wrong. She made sure I had everything I ever wanted, and she indulged my obsessions and spent time with me learning them. She made sure I made it to Star Trek conventions, she listened and laughed and asked questions about me meeting Captain Picard or Captain Kirk. She went to an N’SYNC concert with me twelve years ago and had a blast. When I was really little, she patiently listened to me tell her about my Monkees records, and the plot from The Goonies. She always had time for me, and always knew I valued my time alone as well.
On Friday afternoons, Babe and Pa and I would go to Morrison’s for dinner. Afterwards, Pa would wait while Babe and I went to Miracle City Mall and bought books and things at Waldenbooks. On Saturday mornings I would wake up to the smell of bacon. No pancakes have ever tasted as good as Babe and Pa’s pancakes, with a Coke and an entire package of bacon, supplied by Babe. I’ll never forget those weekends, they were perfect. I may not know how to be a financially responsible adult, but I do know how to love with the entire force of my being. I do know how to listen to someone as if they are the center of my world. I do know that I was her best friend, and that I knew her personality best, as well as I know my own. I know that I will keenly feel the loss of her life for the rest of mine.

Ha’a Keaulana runs across the ocean floor with a 50 pound boulder. They do this as training to survive the massive surf waves of winter. She learned her amazing skills from her dad, legendary waterman #briankeaulana and her Grandpa, #Buffalo. I was very humbled to learn from the Hawaiians who have salt water running through their veins. Mahalo Nui Loa. Please stay tuned for our upcoming story on the Hawaiian surfing culture.
