I'm depressed.

Harold Ramis passed away today at the age of 69; the result of complications related to autoimmune inflammatory vasculitis, a condition he had been battling for years.

So, I turned to my pals on Facebook for some group therapy.

We talked our favorite Harold Ramis movies & roles and some, like me, even shared sentiments.  ...with emoticons.  Sad...faced...teary-eyed...emoti --- *breaks down*

Ramis had plenty of fantastic roles, both on screen and off, but the group narrowed down its' favorites to two; "Stripes" and "Ghostbusters."  In Stripes, Ramis played the character of Russell Ziskey and in Ghostbusters I and II, the role of Dr. Egon Spengler.  Ramis wrote all three films as well.

Gary from Jackson shared:

"I joined the Army not long after ["Stripes"] came out, which was filmed at Ft. Knox KY. Knowing I marched on the same parade ground as that group was the ONLY thing I enjoyed about Basic!!"

For myself, though I am a huge fan of Ghostbusters, I think I have to go with Erin from Mason in choosing "Groundhog Day," for which Ramis wrote the screenplay. Just a genius movie.

I think Kate in Lansing summed it up best when she asked:

"NOW who we gonna call??"

RIP Harold Ramis 1944-2014
