A sad day when icons from my childhood are starting to die.

 

I liked the pic Lindsay posted on Facebook. I thought it was sweet and sad.

He seemed like a nice guy who wasn't afraid to be a nerd.

Groundhog Day is one of my favorite movies of all time. Even off the camera, you were amazing. Rest in peace, man.

On a related (but somewhat more cheerful) note, Monkeys Took My Jetpack recorded a Halloween special last year, where they played the original Ghostbusters RPG from WEG. It's a great little episode, well worth listening to at any time of year. They start with a quick bout of character gen, and then play a scenario from the Operations sourcebook, about a possessed taxi cab.

Josh: "I'm shooting the proton pack at the car!" :)
Bambi: "Well, that's a way to cut to the chase, isn't it?"
Josh: "I figure, blowing up its corporeal form oughta make it manifest as a spirit - that's science!"

Josh: "I didn't wear this unlicensed nuclear accelerator not to shoot it."
Bambi: "Thank god he's not gonna be able to have children."
Josh: "You don't know that I'm wearing my lead underwear.";)
Trilobite: "We all know you're wearing your lead underwear, you won't shut up about it!"
Josh: "You got the memo, good." :)

I don't think I caught their episode of that -  I'm usually up to date with them too...

 

To the mp3 depository!

There's also an older AP podcast, ironically using a Savage Worlds version of Ghostbusters, rather than the original (older) West End Games rpg.

If you prefer longer-running campaigns rather than one-offs, check out The Nerdy Show's Ghostbusters podcast.

Damn...this actually brought tears to my eyes. Sad to hear about Harold Ramis' passing. :<
