If you've been hearing strains of Ray Parker, Jr. coming from your entertainment news lately, it's not just Slimer playing tricks on you. Ghostbusters 3 is going to begin filming this winter!
Now, you're probably thinking either, "I ain't afraid of no ghosts" or, "WTF does this have to do with a feminist response to pop culture?".

From her television appearance as a phone sex operator to her penchant for night cheese, 30 Rock's Liz Lemon has provided a lot of laughs this season.

Let's watch a few more videos after the jump, shall we?
