Rest in Peace Harold Ramis
I knew something was up because my phone had been blowing up all morning. Sadly when I finally checked it my worst fears had happened, one of my idols has passed away. For those that know me and many of you readers that don’t, I’m sure you can tell I’m a huge Ghostbusters fan. This movie influenced my sense of humor, shaped what funny could be.
The list of humor influences on me are small, Mel Brooks, Monty Python and Harold Ramis. Caddyshack, Stripes and Ghostbusters rank high on my favorite films list and sadly the man behind those movies has passed away.
Harold Ramis died at the age of 69 today surrounded by his family. Egon you will be missed and can never be replaced. I hate writing about celebrity deaths and this one has truly hit me hard. Do me a favor and watch one of those movies I listed above in his honor and remember just how damn funny he truly was.
