Bill Murray in Ghostbusters II

Hopebusters, Too

Ghostbusters II Predicted the World Will End on Valentine’s Day 2016

Catch Ghostbusters II this month on IFC. Provided the world doesn't end, of course.

Far be it from us to contradict Mr. Bill Murray, but a prediction made in a scene from one of his films is about to be put to the test. If you remember Ghostbusters II, then you know that at the beginning of the film, retired ‘buster Peter Venkman is the host of a chat show called World of the Psychic. According to a guest on the show, the world will end on February 14th, 2016 — this Valentine’s Day.

Now, before you start looting, keep in mind the source of this information is a tad unreliable. Elaine (played by Sid and Nancy star Chloe Webb) sits with Venkman and relates how she received this intel from an alien who may or may not have disguised a UFO to look like a Holiday Inn in Paramus. Let’s just hope she misheard, otherwise there will be some awkward date nights this year.

Check out the grim prognostication in the clip below. Hopefully the world will still be here when Ghostbusters II airs Monday, Feb. 15th and throughout the month on IFC.

Portlandia is not a place, it’s a state of mind. So when news comes out that someone in Brooklyn has launched a baby DJ school, just remember: In Portlandia everyone is a DJ.

The Baby DJ School is a real, live 8-week long program designed for tots ages 0 to 3 by a DJ who’s worked with acts like LCD Soundsystem and Das Racist. Breathe a sigh of relief that your child will be able to drop a beat as well as its rattle while you watch this throwback from Portlandia season 2:

Look out, Portland, Ian Rubbish is coming. Fred Armisen’s crusty punk with the soft spot for Margaret Thatcher is playing Portland’s finest music festival MusicFest NW this weekend.

Before the show, Rubbish, the character that Fred originated on Saturday Night Live, sat down for an enlightening chat with one of Portland’s alt-paper, Willamette Week. Topics covered include sports (“When your team is losing, you give a, “Oi! Don’t keep losing! Go score! Get the ball in the basket!”), playing music, and how to handle airport security. Read the interview here.
