A few more self-portraits…
From a collection of self-portraits I took on a sunny afternoon in early March.
What, you an honest man, Boyd? Hm? A full-blown honest man? That why you pointing that gun at me from underneath that desk?
Self-portraits I took on a sunny afternoon, in early March.
Song of the Day: Geoff Zanelli — “Righteous Buttkicking”
…The soundtrack is the only really good part of this film. Well, the soundtrack and quasi-nude Olga Kurylenko.
Song of the Day: The Doors - “Lover Her Madly”
"Don’t you love her, as she’s walking out the door."
Cool black and white of Frank Sinatra in the studio.
…From the “Blood Diamond” Soundtrack.
The slow burn to the reserved, main “Blood Diamond” cue (on the piano) is great.
Song of the Day: The Glitch Mob — “Skytoucher”
…From their new album, “Love Death Immortality.”
…The phasing electronic sounds are awesome on this one.
Comedy actor, writer and director Harold Ramis is best known for the 1984 film Ghostbusters, which he co-wrote and starred in along with Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd. Ramis had co-written and planned to star in the long-awaited Ghostbusters III — but did not get the chance. Ramis died Monday in Chicago from an autoimmune disorder. He was 69 years old.
Ramis co-wrote Animal House, Meatballs and Stripes. He co-wrote and directed Caddyshack, and directed Murray in Groundhog Day.
Today, we remember Ramis with excerpts from a 2005 interview with Fresh Air's Terry Gross:
"I played a lot of weasels, a lot of cowards; sweating cowards was my thing. I used to play like hippies and, like, counterculture guys, and [John] Belushi kind of took that over, so I moved into the coward role. … The other thing I would always play was the character called "specs" or "the professor." I’d play the brainy guy, which I ended up doing, of course, in Ghostbusters.”
