Isabel Bradley: What is he trying to do with his life? What does he hope to find?

W. Somerset Maugham: My dear, Larry Bill has found what we all want and few of us ever get. I don't think anyone can fail to be better, nobler, kinder for knowing him. You see, my dear, goodness is, after all, the greatest force in the world. And he's got it.

No one is ever going to believe you.

I like that his brother is a great guy, too.

Rumor is that on the set of "Ghostbusters," he would shiat in the shower and heel it down the drain to save time.

Missing from the list: that time he starred in the most overrated movie of the decade and acted like a sad little biatch about losing the Best Actor Oscar for it. Boy was that funny!

Bill Murray used to ride upon a steed perchance to spy a lady.

Where do the stories of domestic violence fit in?

Not going to be in Ghosbusters 3? Don't care what he does.

Murray is a huge baseball fan and is one of the owners of team, the Charleston RiverDogs. Here is also serves as 'director of fun', keeping team members spirits up. He also entertains the crowds, once when rain stopped play Murray turned clown and entertained the audience by skidding and bellyflopping all over the pitch.

Bill Brasky once made love to my wife and her mother, her mother had been dead for 10 years!

i love that movie but...yeah....he mad.  he real mad.  you just know he had the perfect speech locked and loaded and had to eat it.

and i kinda recall burt reynolds having steam out of his ears when he lost for 'boogie nights', as well.

one thing that does suck about that movie is the ending.  not letting us hear the dialogue is bullshiatty.  the "choose your own ending" ending isn't an ending, it is a copout.  what does he tell her?  "i can never love the way i loved in this past week", "i will never forget you" *gag*, "your husband is the luckiest piece of shiat on earth", "i bet your asshole tastes like cherry ice cream", etc.  we don't know what he says.  that is a bullshiatty ending.

"i bet your asshole tastes like cherry ice cream"

Because cherry cordial is too obvious?

I really enjoyed Bill's remake of "The Razor's Edge".

Also missing: Bill or one of his brothers will crank-call Mitch Glazer whenever Kelly Lynch and Patrick Swayze are getting it on in "Road House".

I encourage everyone to read Murray's own book of stories about Murray, "Cinderella Story".


/I am not Bill Murray
//Also there's a Roy Blount Jr. piece about him  in one of his collections
///also not RB Jr.


////damn it

Bill Murry was in Hawaii a few months back, and photo's of him with various friends started popping up on my Facebook feed.

I've heard he is very gracious and friendly when you meet him.
 
2014-02-13 05:49:19 PM  
I don't see anything in their about calling Kelly Lynch's husband (a friend of Murray's) every single time Roadhouse is on to tell him that Patrick Swayze is railing his wife right now.

I don't think there are more than two or three funny stories involving Bill Murray. If that.
 
2014-02-13 06:33:13 PM  
BFM crashed a buddies bachelor's party in Vegas...he ate the entire cake before we could tell him there was a stripper in it...

/his family crest is a picture of a barracuda, eating Neil Armstrong

I would love to meet the guy and stuff. But I quit reading after how cool it is he drank out of a coffee cup.

That's the one I was looking for as well.

Well, first it's NOT a shiatty ending. It's creative and different and when things in movies are different than the are normally done that's a good thing. Think Sopranos final show.

But it has been pretty well solved for quite a while now:

I gotta say, I wish I were leading as rich, rewarding, fun, and dammit, comfortable life as his. He's the anti-douchebag rich guy who actually made it on his own. And he can drop a one-liner with the best of'em. Good on ya, Bill.

Fantastic book also.....and his tribute to Belushi in the film gets me every time.

He sounds like an awesome dude but if Garfield 1 was a mistake then why did he make 2?

hervatski: He sounds like an awesome dude but if Garfield 1 was a mistake then why did he make 2?


He hated the first movie, and it was a total bomb in the US, but it made huge money on the overseas distribution -- so he did, too.

I was once heard  a horse say he was hung like Bill Brasky
