Freddie For A Day – Freddie Mercury Fancy Dress Celebration

If on Wednesday the 5th of September you found yourself doing a few double takes of yellow jacket wearing, lycra and leather clad Freddy Mercury look-alikes you are not alone, and you are not going mad. The moustached masses were paying homage to the late Queen front man with the annual Freddy For A Day (FFAD) charity celebration.

The celebration which was set up in 1992 by the AIDs charity Mercury Phoenix Trust is now a worldwide celebration encouraging all of those willing to be involved to don some form of Freddy Mercury fancy dress and to help raise money and awareness of the charities work.

The celebration was the brainchild of Mercury Phoenix Trust volunteer Liz Swanton who donned a Freddy Mercury costume on the late singer’s birthday and attempted to raise money at her workplace in central London. Her efforts proved to be incredibly successful and she rose thousands of pounds for the charity. Her success created a huge buzz and thousands of supporters wanted to get involved in the event. The result was that Freddy For A Day was born and is now celebrated across the world on or around his birthday.

Over the next few weeks, at least until the Olympic Games steals their thunder, the Dark Knight Rises will be the hottest tickets in town (whatever town you live in). The Dark Knight Rises has been one of most hyped films of 2012 and that’s saying something during the summer of superhero blockbusters that have already graced the big screen. While it’s too early to say how the Dark Knight will measure up to this year’s Avengers and The Amazing Spider-Man films the critics who have already seen it make the following arguments:

Original Ghostbusters Proton Pack and “Slimer” the Green Ghost to be auctioned

After the news of the discovery of the Higgs boson set the scientific communities tongues wagging last week, another major win for science (albeit fictional science) has been announced with the news that the original Ghostbusters Proton Pack will be falling under the hammer on the 30th of July in Los Angeles.

Although it isn’t clear which of the Ghostbusters wore this particular proton pack (it is rumoured the packs were alternated throughout filming, so it is possible all four of them wore it at one point) it is the first of its kind to come under auction and is an authenticated prop from the original 1984 Ghostbusters film. The proton pack is a portable particle accelerator allowing would be Ghostbusters among you to hold “negatively charged ectoplasm entities.”
