In celebration of today being what would have been Harold Ramis' 72nd birthday, we're airing one of Troy's favorite lectures that Harold gave at the Chicago Humanities Festival in 2009. It was a response to the AFI list of the 100 greatest comedies of all-time and is Ramis talking about his favorite comedic films of all-time (plus a little bit of Q&A with the audience). It's a great listen for fans of film, and a very introspective look inside the mind of one of the most incredible comedic voices of our time. For more about the Chicago Humanities Festival visit their website: chicagohumanities.org
It's a bit of a light week in Ghostbusters world because of all that other news currently dominating most folks' attention (is it just us, or is Ghostbusters II starting to feel like a documentary?), but that's not going to stop Chris and Troy from chatting Ghostbusters and there's still plenty to talk about including that Bernie Wrightson concept art, the Titan vinyl figures, some more cool Japanese merch, the Ghostbusters of BC doing a little charity fundraising, and yes - even some Extreme Ghostbusters chat. So come take a break from the tension for a bit and spend an hour with the Ghostheads, eh?
