Crank's Occult is celebrating Ghostbusters Day on a sale of biblical proportions... what do I mean by "biblical"? I'm talking 60% off patches and pins, NINE new sticker releases, dogs and cats living together mass hysteria!
All stickers are availible now. The 60% off sale runs until Sunday night (11:59pm GMT) and all order between now and then will also get a brushed aluminium "Ecto-35" sticker absolutely free (no minimum order required). And if that wasn't enough to get your Ecto reving I'll also be giving away a couple of Jiffy bags full of merch to two lucky customers.

It's taken me almost a year to get this one finished but it's finally here; for all the ATC fans out there I present to you: Ghostbusters The Mixtape: Answer the Call.
Ghostbusters ATC gets too much hate, and along with it so does it's fans; who often get pushed aside and left behind when it comes time to share in the Ghostbusters fandom. Love it or hate it the impact this movie has had on the franchise and fandom as a whole is unquestionable, to say that pre ATC, Ghostbusters was in a slump would be a serious understatement whether die hards wanna admit it or not this film (and it's fan base) helped rejuvenate a flailing franchise and for that I'm truly grateful.
Much like my previous two tapes (stream/download them here) this plays out more like an enhanced soundtrack than a scene for scene audio re-telling, so put ya feet up, grab an Ecto Cooler and prepare to get Holtzmann'd baby!

As mentioned on the latest episode of the awesome Ghostbusters Interdimensional Crossrip Podcast, Ray Parker Jr was at Comic Con Scotland last weekend and took park in a brief Q&A.
All the Ghostbusters related questions were included in this week's Crossrip episode but for those wanting the full RPJ experience, stream the complete Q&A below.
As laid out in my Instagram post from today I have re-opened my Ghostbusters inspired merch store Crank's Occult, this time focussing primarily on my Haunted Holiday collection. I'll be releasing four new designs a year as a patch and sticker alongside one existing Haunted Holiday design that will be re-released as a soft enamel pin. I will continue to donate money form every item sold to charity however where I once gave 10% I will now give 15%.
I have also permanently reduced all non Haunted Holidays lines by 50% as a thank you to the Ghostbusters fan community for their continued support and encouragement.
It's been a minute but I'm back with another Ghostbusters mash-up!
This one came to me in the shower a few months back whilst listening to the original classic "Bustin' Loose" from the legendary Chuck Brown & the Soul Searchers (which is a great wake up track btw). "Ghostbustin' Loose" tells the story of the boys in grey's first bust at the infamous Sedgewick Hotel.
"Ghostbustin' Loose", like all of my Ghostbusters remixes and mash-ups is competely free to stream and download right here on EctoCrank.com.

After months of fundraising (and a week delay) I finally took part in the St Helena Hospice 2018 Comic Hero Run, a 5K charity fun run that I completed... dressed as Slimer! It was hot, sweaty and hard to breathe but I finished in the top 10 (I came in 6th place) out of over 100 runners!
I had a great time taking part in this fun run and as difficult as it was to complete, it was well worth it to raise £300 for the hospice. On that note I just wanna say thank you to everyone who donated to this event and to all the Ghostheads and Ghostbusters Franchises that have helped me promote this event over the last 6 months.
Pretty sure I'll be running again in 2019, the only question is: where do I find a Stay Puft costume?
It's World Autism Awareness Week!
Our very own Dan Aykroyd has stated that his Asperger syndrome contributed to the inspiration for Ghostbusters because one of his symptoms included "my obsession with ghosts and law enforcement".
