Harold Ramis Of The Ghostbusters Passes Away.

It saddens me to bring news that one of the greatest comedy writers and director of our time, Harold Ramis died this morning of complications from an autoimmune inflammatory disease, he was 69 years old.

Harold Ramis was best known for his undeniably game changing comedies such as Caddyshack, Stripes, Groundhog Day, National Lampoon’s Animal House and the always classic Ghostbusters franchise.

Ramis was born Nov. 21, 1944, in Chicago. He is survived by his wife, Erica Ramos; sons Julian and Daniel; daughter, Violet, and two grandchildren.

He also left behind a reputation as a true inspiration to many.

Fake lesbian duo tATu perform at Sochi opener

t.A.T.u. just performed at the Olympic Opening Ceremony, so I guess Putin's never seen their videos? Real Russian lesbians: fined or imprisoned. Fake Russian lesbians: booked for the #Sochi opening ceremony. Got it!

The event's producer said tATu's "Not Gonna Get Us" was chosen because it's one of the only Russian pop songs that international viewers might recognize.

Konstantin Ernst also argued that the choice was about motivating athletes with an upbeat dance song that challenges competitors by saying "you're not going to get us."

I see the Russians don't have any problem with certain sorts of 'homosexuality'. While the singers put on a lesbian act, they have not defend gay rights and it is largely seen as an attention-getting gimmick.

Olympic Ring Fails to Light During Opening Ceremony

So the opening sequence of the Sochi Opening Ceremony included floating islands and loads of Russian things.

Then this happened. The fifth ring didn’t open.

I don’t know about you but I don’t think this was planned.

The Huffington Post went with this.

Here is what the rings should have looked like.

Traffic Light Lets You Play Pong

A very modern and amazing traffic crosswalk in central Germany that allows you to play a game of pong with someone on the other side of the street while waiting for the light to change:

STREETPONG is a concept of urban interaction by Sandro Engel and Holger Michel, developed at the HAWK Hildesheim, Faculty of Art. It is a simulation, not a permanent installation.

Bruno Mars Halftime Show Super Bowl Performance 2014

Bruno Mars gives stellar performance at Super Bowl. He preformed Treasurer, Run Away Baby, and Locked out of Heaven.I thought it was very good. A lot of people think Bruno Mars is too young at 28 and this is to early to be doing in his career. But I think he did a great job. He also had a nice segue from Run Away Baby to the Red Hot Chili Peppers. I think over all they did a great job. I thought it was a very good Super bowl performance. Better then some that we have had in the past.
