With all due respect to his past work, what has Mr. Murray done of note in the last  say, 10 years?

Just asking.

What difference does it make what he's done in the last 10 years? He's still an awesome dude who's down to earth in a way even celebrities without his past work are.

Neil Armstrong hasn't walked on the moon since 1969 but if he was still alive I'd be pretty damn excited to meet him.

Zombieland?

I am aghast that he's known as the "Ghostbusters" star and not known for his frightening awesome role in Groundhog Day or his zombiefied cameo in Zombieland. And don't get me started on his spectrally special performance in Lost in Translation!

A Hawaiian shirt with camo pants? Well, I guess if I was Bill F*cking Murray I wouldn't bother to coordinate my outfits either.

Groundhog Day was the last he thing he did that was truly great. Zombieland was trading on his overrated internet fame. I'm dreading Letterman's last night, mostly because I love Letterman(and Ferguson, to a lesser degree), and will have no late-night worth watching, but also because this guy will likely feature in the final taping.

Its St Paul so they don't know anything else.

Also, now I've been wondering if he does shiat like this to avoid a Robin Williams type depression.

Another awesome guy is Mel Brooks. My uncle does video work and met him sometime this past year. Knowing I'm a huge fan (I have movie posters up in my place of Men in Tights and To Be or Not To Be, which is seriously underrated, but I digress), my uncle asked Mel if he could say something to me and my then-fiance on camera, which was subsequently played at our wedding. So yes, during the reception we got to be surprised by a clip of Mel Brooks congratulating us on our wedding. I probably deafend those around me with my scream.

One night after drinking downtown I was on the A train on my way to the W4th street station so I could jump on the PATH on 9th street back to Hoboken. Between the two stations on 6th avenue is a hot dog place called Grays Papaya, which at the time (2002) had a "recession special": two dogs and a soda for $2.50. There was always a line. Being pretty lit up, I got in line. I asked the guy in front of me for a light. He turned around and it was Bill Murray! He grabbed me in a headlock and lit my cigarette, and paid for my recession special.

To this day, nobody believes me.

Anyone else kinda worried that maybe he has been diagnosed with something terminal and he is bucket listing?

Well, to celebrate the 30th anniversary, Ghostbusters is out in theaters this week.  It was the first thing I thought of when I read Murray's name today, because my wife and I are going to go see it tomorrow.

Anyway, my Bill Murray CSB:

In 1998, I was stationed down at Camp Pendleton, and a couple buddies and I drove up to Pebble Beach to see the AT&T Pro-Am.  That was the year it poured like crazy, but they managed to get in 18 holes on Saturday.  The really big crowd was following around Tiger Woods and Clint Eastwood, so we got bored trying to see anything but people's heads, and went in search of other celebrities.  Bill Murray was playing at the same time, and had a much smaller crowd.  He had a pint bottle of vodka that he kept taking swigs out of, and was pretty much taking none of this seriously.  Funny guy.  So, next to one of the holes, there was a snack bar, and we had gotten in line to grab a sandwich, when Murray apparently saw the line at the snack bar, hopped off the course, walks over, pushes his way to the front of the line shaking everyone's hand, saying hi.  Then he proceeds to buy a soda and a chicken salad sandwich.  He pulls out his wallet, whips out like $500 bucks, and says that since everyone in line must be starving since they'd rather buy food than watch him play, pays for everybody in line's lunch.  Then he walks back to the course, ducks under the rope, and gets back to playing like nothing happened.

How can your life be so sour that you dis a guy who's clearly enjoying his? Bill Murray is here to make people smile and remind them to have fun. Thanks, Bill.

Was thinking the same thing since he keeps popping up all over the place after being a pretty reclusive guy.

How do you know he's "enjoying his"? After Murray's divorce a few years ago, I bet he became bored or depressed or both. After 60, you don't suddenly become different.

In his later years, Stan Laurel would sit out in his yard to talk to fans. His telephone number was published and people would call him to talk to the great Stan Laurel. Cool? Maybe. And maybe a little pathetic, too. If Murray's acting out of abundance of love for his fans, great, but lives don't usually work out like that. So, maybe "dis" is the wrong direction to go in response to comments. Maybe "worry" or "concern" would be more accurate.

I am surprised how Fark can put the "Cool" tag on Murray after he was accused of spousal abuse by his ex wife.

I see. So the guy who said he hasn't' done anything good in ten years is "concerned"  about Bill Murray. Right. Stories about him goofing around in public make May Day a little better. But you go ahead and find the negative if it makes you...happy? Sorry I was enjoying myself for a minute. .

I don't see why concern over Murray means you shouldn't enjoy yourself. Did he quit being funny?

I have no idea what's going on. He could be acting out of abundance of love for his fans. He doesn't write. He doesn't call. Was it that time in Key West and my joke about the dog? I'm not calling him this time. I can be stiff-necked, too.
