Just about fell out of my chair when I saw this tonight:

http://www.today.com/entertainment/harold-ramis-ghostbusters-star-dead-69-2D12156583

Harold Ramis dead at 69. Just...wow. He was a fixture of my childhood by appearing in great films like Ghostbusters and Stripes. But it's only been in recent years that I've realized he directed many other favorites (Vacation, Groundhog Day, Caddyshack), and also wrote others (Animal House, Meatballs).

A shame that we never got to see the personal rift between Ramis and Bill Murray resolved after the Groundhog Day problems.

And I guess Ghostubsters 3 is now officially dead. Leave it alone, I say.

I agree. I was shocked when I read about his passing early yesterday. Also wasn't aware of all his work as director and writer.

Any possibility of a Ghostbusters 3 should end. Don't need it now.

Supposedly Murray did reconcile with him before he passed away.

I haven't heard that news, of course if it was done privately then I guess it's not our business. But I sure hope they did patch things up.

This news shocked and saddened me as well. I'm a huge fan of his work, be it acting, directing or writing. I even loved Year One (his last movie, I'm the only one I know who's seen it and likes it.)

He was a true legend in the comedy world.

Yeah. Sucks that he died. Stripes and Ghostbusters are classics. Didn't know him and Bill Murray were on the outs. Sad stuff.


(referring to an original comic book piece) This is a art gallery my friend and THIS is a piece of art.

Well, I hope it's true. Still sad to see former friends lose so many years over what is, at the end of the day, trivial stuff. Life's too short.

Murray had kind (if not completely logical) words for Ramis when Murray presented the Academy Award for cinematography Sunday night. I understood it as Murray wanting to publicly affirm their reconciliation.

I usually like the awards shows, but I missed the Oscars. Do you know if I a can watch any of it online anywhere?

YouTube?

Other than that, I'm afraid I wouldn't know where to look.

Yeah, I found a clip there. The fact that Murray mentioned Groundhog Dog (the film that led to the rift) says a lot.
