One of the things we learned about Bill Murray from his Netflix Christmas special is that he can sing. While we just found that out, former Late Show band leader Paul Shaffer knew that all along. In fact, the musician asked Murray to sing on Paul Shaffer and The World’s Most Dangerous Band’s new self-titled album that is out on March 17th.
That diddy is Happy Street and it is going to make you happy! Watching Murray act always brings us joy and turns out his singing does the same. Maybe, he will consider releasing his own album kind of like his old Saturday Night Live friend Steve Martin did. I would add it to my collection. Don’t you want to own his music?
For the last few years, there has been a question that has been puzzling the World Wide Web. Is that Bill Murray or Tom Hanks in a photo with a woman and her baby. Graham Norton had to know who it was, so he asked one of the men who is rumored to be in that photo is it him or the other guy? Forrest Gump went all Scrooge and revealed it is Bob in that photo. Don’t believe it, see him reenact the photo with an orange rain poncho, Gemma Arterton and Joseph Gordon-Levitt as the baby. Are you convinced?
The only thing I am convinced of now, is I no longer can tell them apart because they really do look alike in the face. And here I thought that title only belonged to Isla Fisher and Amy Adams, and Jonah Hill and Seth Rogen. Which actors do you confuse all the time?
When you were a kid and you saw Ghostbusters, did you wonder what was the inspiration behind the lovable Stay Puft Marshmallow Man? I know I did! Yesterday on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the man who used his white stuff (brain not sperm, what were you thinking) revealed how he helped with the birthing process. Ray Stantz explained, “I was looking for something in my childhood that was innocent in the movie.” So he told his friends John Daveikis and Michael Gross, “To marry the Pillsbury Dough Boy, the Michelin Tire Man and Angelas Marshmallow Man and put them all together.” What we got was a huge huggable looking sailor that is still as popular today as he was then.
And talking about things that are just as popular now, Ray Parker Jr sang the Ghostbusters theme song as the original and new cast members danced to it on the ABC talk show. Bill Murray was the only one who went wild throughout the whole tune, which is why I know the new version is going to suck. If those ladies can’t even dance to Who You Gonna Call, how are they are going to do the franchise justice? I don’t have a problem with an all female version of the movie. I have a problem with Paul Feig turning it Bridesmaids 2. He does the same thing over and over again with the same cast and I am over it. Let him destroy his own movies and not ours!
Back in 1989, Ghostbusters II predicted that today would be the end of the World. Elaine told Dr Peter Venkman that an Alien, whom she met at a bar in Paramus, NJ, told her that today is our end of days. Is it?
Earlier this week, she took to YouTube to share this very important update with us. She wanted us to know that that Alien recently texted her and said, “The World is not ending!” Then she added he said, “That prediction was based on the fact that slime was rising at such a rate.” How can we prevent the Apocalypse? The Alien revealed to her, “As long as there is more love than slime the World goes on.” So keep the love, not the slime flowing.
Although, I think that the Alien’s prediction was off by exactly 4 months. What happens then? The Ghostbusters reboot comes out…
Back in 1989, February 14, 2016 seemed like a really long time away because it was 25 years in the future. But on February 10, 2016, that seems like it is really near because it is.
Why am I bringing this up? Because during Ghostbusters II, Dr. Peter Venkman (Bill Murray) hosted a show for Psychics and a woman told him a source told her that the World will end on February 14, 2016. Where did Elaine (Chloe Webb) get this information, she said, “I received this information from an alien.” Then she added, “It was in the Paramus Holiday Inn, I was having a drink at the bar alone and this alien approached me. He started talking to me. He bought me a drink.” Then that alien took her back to his room and told her about the End of the World.
So folks, if you get dumped or you are single on Valentine’s Day and it feels like the End of the World, it is because Ghostbusters II said so.
