They are painters, sculptors and photographers; poets and storytellers; musicians and creators of amazing video games. They are kids, teens and adults. Last year, a new online publication arose to celebrate the talents of autistic individuals and other developmental disabilities: GLIMPSE, offered by ICDL (The Interdisciplinary Council of Developmental and Learning Disorders). In late 2008, Volume 2 of GLIMPSE was released, and was expanded into a print book and notecards. The works are serious, humourous, deeply personal and illuminating. See it for yourself, share it with others, submit your own/your child’s work for inclusion in Volume 3, to release later this year. Find information and ordering details at www.icdl.com

Synopsis:

When the Museum of Natural History is closed for upgrades and renovations, the museum pieces are moved into federal storage at the Smithsonian Institution, which comes to life. The museum houses the world’s largest museum complex with more than 136 million items in its collections, ranging from the plane Amelia Earhart (Amy Adams) flew on her non-stop solo flight across the Atlantic and Al Capone’s (Jon Bernthal) rap sheet and mug shot to Dorothy’s ruby slippers, Fonzie’s jacket from Happy Days, the still from M*A*S*H and Archie Bunker’s lounge chair from All in the Family. When the museum pieces from the first film are attacked by Kahmunrah, an evil Pharaoh, Larry (Ben Stiller) breaks into the Smithsonian to save the old exhibits from New York (Such as Theodore Roosevelt and Dexter) from new exhibits (like General Custer, Napoleon Bonaparte, Al Capone, and even Darth Vader). Larry enlists the help of Amelia Earhart, whom he develops a romantic interest in, and together they try to put everything back in order.

Ghostbusters: The Video Game is an action game in development for the Nintendo DS, PC, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Portable, Wii, and Xbox 360.[1] The PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 versions are being developed by Terminal Reality, while the PlayStation 2 and Wii versions are being developed by Red Fly Studio (developers of Mushroom Men) and the Nintendo DS version will be handled by Zen Studios.[6] In North America, all versions of the game will be published by Atari.[2] In Europe, Sony Computer Entertainment will publish the PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 3 versions, while Atari will publish the other versions later in the year. [3]

The game is based on the Ghostbusters film franchise. Ghostbusters creator Dan Aykroyd has confirmed that the game is essentially Ghostbusters 3.[7]

The game’s storyline was written by Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis, the writers of the original films.[4][8] They, along with Bill Murray and Ernie Hudson, will also lend their voices and likenesses to the game. Several supporting cast members, such as William Atherton (Walter Peck), Brian Doyle-Murray (as the new mayor of New York, Jock Mulligan) and Annie Potts (Janine) have also signed on. However, Rick Moranis (Louis Tully) declined to end his retirement from acting to be a part of the game.[9] In addition, Sigourney Weaver will not be reprising her role of Dana Barrett.[10] Instead, Alyssa Milano will be playing the role of the new love interest in the game, Dr. Ilyssa Selwyn.[11]
