Love Bill Murray. So very much a regular guy and down-to-earth
 
2014-07-24 11:56:56 AM  
I don't believe him.  Nobody ever will.

I was watching Zombieland the other night and the scenes with Bill Murray are just priceless.

"Oh sh*t, I shot Bill Murray! I am so, so sorry Mr. Murray"

"I think, Bill, now".

Many, many years ago my (then) grade schooler wanted to go through an expensive utterly stupid tourist trap. I told him that the odds of me paying for it were the same as a Bill Murray sighting being true. Guess who tapped me on the shoulder? He just commented that the kid now gets to go in and walked away. I thought before this that the Bill stories were not true.... The guy is really awesome.

Sorry disbelievers, it really happened. He was there for a small part in an indie. Pre cheap cellphone cameras (I said years ago) when the meme was getting popular. He didn't even grin. Just walked away.
 
2014-07-24 01:51:03 PM  
Well, of course he did.

My wife just asked me if we could take trip to Paris next month to see her friends family. I told her that the odds of me getting the time off and scrounging up the dough for a last minute European vacation were about the same as this random guy on the internet's Bill Murray story being true.

Next thing I know the toilet flushes and Bill Murray comes out of the bathroom drying his hands on his pants, takes one look at me and says "bon voyage asshole!" with an annoyed look on his face and walks out the front door. Cool guy.

You didn't meet no Martin Luther the King.

I did!  I did!  I was just walking down the street minding my own business and he came up and hit me in the face.  He said, oh, sorry.  I thought you were someone else.

The entity we know as "Bill Murray" is in fact an army of clones likely set up by the Rand corporation in conjunction with the reverse vampires to lull us into a false sense of security about stories on the internet and random celebrity encounters so that we are docile sheeple for when the invasion eventually comes. Study it out.

Ever notice how you never see Bill Murray and Banksy at the same time?

I do have a friend who met Michael Jackson on more than one occasion.

Begin second-hand CSB:

Michael Jackson was interested in building a roller coaster at Cedar Point. When he visited the area he made a point to visit sick or handicapped children, and my friend was a director of several homes that took care of severely disabled children, and Michael Jackson was all about visiting them, and with absolutely no press. I guess he did it all the time (visit sick kids).

Anyway, I guess the deal fell through around 9/11 -- Michael Jackson wanted to basically rent out the entire amusement park for a single day and take all of the disabled kids with him, but then all the flights got grounded and so on and so forth. I'm sure there were probably financial disagreements regarding the roller coaster. Never got built.

My friend said Michael was always very kind (he didn't believe he was capable of the heinous crimes of which he was accused), and was big on hugging. He also said MJ didn't say much, he was pretty much all about the kids.

My friend had nothing negative to say about Michael Jackson at all, but I pressed him -- there had to be something weird about someone that famous. Anyway, he kind of got a funny look on his face and said, "You know, now that you're asking me... Michael Jackson has no smell. No smell whatsoever and I hugged him several times on different occasions. No body odor, no perfume, no shampoo -- nothing. It's like he's not even there."

End maybe not so cool story.

tl;dr Michael Jackson has no smell.

Depends - is it soft-serve ice cream or is it really frozen custard? If it's the latter, it is a wondrous thing.

Someone hosted a "Bill Murray Ice Cream Social"... and he actually showed up

They invited the entire cast and crew of a movie Bill was working on over for free ice cream nearby to where the movie was shooting. I think him not showing up would have been a pretty jerk move.

Had a friend who opened up for Afroman and needed help selling his stuff. I went, saw the show, and was helping pack up. Struck a conversation with the bartender and asked where the after party was and she said her house. We invited Afroman and his crew to come, not expecting anything.

The movie "Imagine That" with Eddie Murphy was filmed next to my office.  Walking back from lunch one day, I had to cross through the parking lot where they were set up, not paying attention, I almost bumped into Eddie Murphy and spilled my coke on him.

//Scenes were outside the "Child Services" office.  Actually filmed at 17th and Grant St. in Denver.

CSB

I was in an IHoP browsing through the menu trying to decide which omelette to get when my girlfriend states she is going to order the most expensive thing on the menu.  Of course it is my turn to pay and I WOULD be getting a blowjob later, but it is like $22.00.  I am not made of money.  I told her the chances of me getting that for her are the same as a guy who knowns Bill Murray's dry cleaner just coming from an Eddie Murphy movie tapping me on the shoulder.

Next thing you know, I feel a tap on my shoulder.  I turn and look behind me.  A balding man looked me in dead in the eye and said simply, "biatch gets the steak."  As he turns to go back to his meal, he mentions, "By the way, A Thousand Words did not suck too bad."

This sort of Bill Murray shows up stuff happens with enough frequency that I'm beginning to think that: A) Bill Murray is omnipresent; and B) What About Bob was a documentary.

IIRC, Depp always brings his costume with him when he travels so he can do that.

Considering he only appeared in the opening of the first episode of Alpha House (also the end of the last episode of Season 1), Bill Murray brought a... certain... something to that series.

Gotta love the director's cut of "True Detective".

You have to pay a man's price for it, but still worth it.
