Update, February 17, 2018
We checked for the missing Ghostbusters groups today. I was able to update most of them world wide, even adding some new franchises in the process.
US: Kansas Ghostbusters groups, are ya out there?
Puerto Rico: We’re still concerned about ghostheads in Puerto Rico. We couldn’t specifically find En Puerto Rico, we’ve added Ghostbusters Puerto Rico.
England: We couldn’t confirm Pompey Ghostbusters. We’ve added Ghostbusters London. We’ve been able to confirm Ghostbusters of North Lanarkshire.
Scotland: We’ve added Ghostbusters of Scotland.
Australia: We couldn’t confirm Premier State Ghostbusters. We’ve added The Victorian Ghostbusters.
Original post after the break.
Two thousand, sixteen. A new year for the Ghostbusters franchise. A milestone year. A year I thought once again GBI should have a new domain name. One that’s less than twenty five letters.
Last year the identity for Ghostbusters International was a little less strong. With continuing changes to my life I had less time to update this site, let alone a few. I’m trying.
The renewal for what was ghostbustersintern dot com has come and gone. I decided not so hastily to not renew the domain name for another year. “For the foreseeable future” Ghostbusters International’s site will only be using WordPress default website address.
Please update your bookmarks and feeds accordingly. Thank you.

When I wrote December 3, 2016 personal update I wasn’t planning on renewing the domain name for Ghostbusters International. Which did or was going to expire today.
I felt at the time with the site’s inactivity and what has been going on in my personal life, better at the time to save the price of approximately 4 cups of that star place’s coffee. I usually make my own coffee anyway.
It still made sense to wait and be somewhat responsible when it comes to fun. The renewal price has been there from multiple sources (i.e.: gift cards) going back at least two years.
As of today ghostbustersintern.com has been renewed for another year. As I move forward I’d like to get back to updates. It depends on the real responsibilities.

During a Q3 meeting neither company was publicly able to talk about, (due to signed paperwork and the internet) our associates from Ghost Corps (Facebook) toured our Corporate HQ. (GBI Blog Post, March 8, 2016) Where they were able to get a design sense of our museum.
Why would Sony be interested in what we display Ghostbusters wise? Sony is designing there own museum which wouldn’t be complete without a GHOSTBUSTERS™ section.
I’ve been meaning to write this post before today. I held off because its difficult and very personal. In other posts where I say its personal, it can be vague. I don’t generally like to publicize my personal life. I’ve whenever I could kept my personal life separate from Ghostbusters. Through the years they’ve sometimes been connected. I feel as a courtesy, for the support you’ve shown the sites over the years, and a need to write I would provide a personal update.
I also reserve the right to remove this post at any time.
Disclaimer: What I’ll write in the next three paragraphs after the read more tag may be emotional.

If you live in the United Kingdom, want to buy tyres, and have a chance to win a holiday for two to NYC, “the home of the Ghostbusters” this is the sweepstakes for you.
National Tyres And Autocare, the United Kingdom largest independent tyre and autocare specialist and Sony Pictures Entertainment (Columbia TriStar Marketing Group, Inc) may be sending you and another person, presumably also a ghosthead roundtrip to New York City!
When some of us first heard that Karcher, (US) a global company that manufacturers leading power washers wanted to begin a partnership for marketing Ghostbusters (2016) we were understandably skeptical. After all ever since our employers invented the Proton Pack, vacuum cleaners became cool by association. The solution was there, it was going to take time to put it all together.
Naturally as we’re not the only ones with a vested interested in Ghostbusters, our associates at Sony Pictures Entertainment really liked it. Both companies came together to market Ghostbusters (2016) and Karcher (UK) pressure washers in Europe.
In the meantime we easily promoted Karcher and Ghostbusters through social media. From a “professional services” side we held off on announcing a partnership until now. Continue reading
As the old saying can go, their’s never a good time to take a vacation around here. This past week was no exception. I originally wanted Louis to update GBI with recent Ghostbusters happenings. In the US deadlines for Tax Day were coming up. As you can imagine Louis was pretty stressed. In addition to what else he does at GBI.
While we really should have more then me to actually update a global site, we don’t. On short notice the best we could do (or so we hoped) is to have interns look through social media and save links. Thankfully at least one employee thought to put a little organization into it. Not enough as now I have to do more then one job as I resume the un-normacly of working for Ghostbusters International.
I’ll be writing about this past week’s Ghostbusters happenings. Hopefully while informative you’ll be ectocontained as well.
