The Interdimensional Crossrip remembers our friend and producer/designer on Ghostbusters, Michael C. Gross this week. Join us first for the latest news, including the final reveal of the ICE Arcade Redemption cabinet, details on Ghostbusters (2016) and some clarification on that whole "Slimer" issue that came up this week, Mental Floss' article on Vigo the Carpathian wrangler Glen Eytchison, an update on Ghostheads, and more. Then, we pay tribute to Michael C. Gross as Troy and Chris say a few words, let the man speak in his own words, and play trailer clips from a handful of the titles which Gross was responsible. (Show notes: for those curious, our interlude about a boy and a girl at the beach leading into our tribute is from the National Lampoon Stereo Test, an album given away with the magazine in 1974).
For this week's show we reach back into the Proton Charging vault for an interview with Michael C. Gross, Associate Producer of Ghostbusters (1984) and Executive Producer of Ghostbusters II and The Real Ghostbusters. Gross joins Crossrip co-host Chris Stewart at the time of the first film's 30th Anniversary to discuss his origins with the Lampoon, Heavy Metal, and Spacehunter then also talks about the impact of the No-Ghost logo on popular culture. Another interview that's not to be missed for fans of Ghostbusters and comedy!
