Nostalgia Re-Born: Ecto Cooler Officially Returning

Well it is official, Coca-Cola is bringing back Ecto Cooler, the Real Ghostbusters-themed Hi-C flavor much to the excitement of overweight 30 somethings. Hi-C Ecto Cooler will be sold in 10-packs of 6-ounce juice boxes and in 6- and 12-packs of 11.5- oz. aluminum cans. The cans, which will be available in select locations including major online retailers, feature thermal ink printing technology that turns an eerie shade of slime green when chilled. This is the best Hi-C news we’ve heard since back in September when some brewery in Pennsylvania announced they were making an Ecto Cooler beer.

That Time Transformers Saved Bruce Springsteen…Sorta

Back in 1986 Marvel decided to take a shot at one their own comic books saving a rock icon just as DC did years earlier. However, much like DC couldn’t get the rights to use The Beatles name, it appears Marvel couldn’t lock Bruce Springsteen into a deal, but you think that stopped them from using Bruce and the E Street Band’s likeness? HELLS NO! The comic basically drew the band in perfect likeness but used some pretty genius writing to cover their tracks. How genius? Well I’ll tell you Tony (all of our readers are named Tony today). They named the lead singer Brick Springhorn and had him sing hit songs like “Born in America” and “Dancing in the Night”. So, the heroic Transformers were likely saving Brick Springhorn from the Decepticons during a rousing version of “Dancing in the Night” which probably sounded/looked like this, but in this version I like to think Ironhide is doing the dance instead of Courtney Cox.

The Kessel run in 12 parsecs: Star Wars Themed Kites

Here are some pretty awesome looking Star Wars themed kites from ThinkGeek. They come in Death Star, Millennium Falcon, X-Wing and R2-D2 varieties, and cost $40 each. I’m not sure what the going rate on kites these days are but $40 for a kite that can like make it to outer-space is a pretty good deal. Keep in mind, I am only assuming these kites can go to outer-space as they look like spaceships. I always think things that look like other things can do the same thing. I’ve never been right before, but I’m pretty sure I am now. Enjoy more pics and a video of these space-bound kites!
