I searched but didn't see this mentioned, sorry if its a repeat.
Watching reruns of The Big Bang Theory the episode S3E17 "The Precious Fragmentation" the guys by a random box full of old stuff from a yard sale.

Leonard: Anyway, we followed the guy to this garage sale, and they had the coolest stuff.

Howard: They were closing up. We got this whole box for sixty bucks.

Leonard: We didn’t even get to go through it all. There could be anything in here.

Penny: There a new girlfriend in there? ‘Cause you might need one.

Leonard: No. But there is an original final draft Ghostbusters script with actual slime stains! (Raj whispers to Leonard) Oh, you’re right, it’s Ghostbusters 2. Never mind.

Finally saw Pixels and picked up multiple parallels between it and Ghostbusters which have been mentioned.
But theres a few not mentioned.

When Josh Gadd shows Sandler the video in his basement ontop of the TV are Super Fright Feature Spengler and Stantz and also in that scene behind Sandler you can see the RGB Dracula toy.

Something I also thought was a great little nod was Aykroyd wearing a little ghost pin in his scenes.

I really enjoyed Pixels a lot... it's a shame that it's getting such a bad reputation over its reviews...

The Back to the Future comic by IDW again comes through with a reference. In the most recent issue (#4), these two make an appearance in the background of the second story

My Little Pony has tons of pop culture references, I think the biggest ones (and most obvious) being Doctor Who and the Big Lebowski, because those characters are actually recurring, having appeared in several episodes, most notably in the 100th episode... I personally love the subtle Metal Gear Solid references in MLP...

That would be cool to see. Seems I might need to check out some MLP. Do you have any episodes to suggest?

I personally love the Future Twilight episode... hmmm... Season 2 Episode 20... it has some Escape from LA/NY, MGS and some Terminator references in it... the 2 episode season ender from Season 5 was a cool time travelling episode... and a couple of episodes before that there was a BTTF reference with Pinkie Pie dressed as Marty McFly...

One of my favorite ones in MLP is the pack startup sound used on a crystal heart emiter.
Hmmm... I haven't noticed that... Crystal Heart Emitter? What episode is that from?

Yesterday I was logging in to AOL and it gave me some intermediate screen asking me to add more info to my account. I had already clicked "Maybe Later" to get to my Mailbox when a detail caught my eye. I tried to hit PrintScreen but it was too late, the page was already changing.

I've now tried to log out and log back in over twenty times but I've never seen the screen again.

It had two people on the right, one was a woman wearing a toboggan cap.

At the bottom, it asked you for a website and had in parentheses something like "Example: yourname@website.com"

Above that, the very last part that caught my eye... it asked for a phone number and said "Example: 555-2368".

Now, that number is not exclusive to Ghostbusters, it could have been a fan's reference to any number of TV shows or movies, but the fact that it was being seen by ME with just a fleeting glance, it felt pretty significant.

If any AOL users are on here, see if you can capture an image of that screen for me next time you see it.
