    This is very upsetting. Another wonderful contributor to popular culture has been lost.

    RIP Harold Ramis

    So sad. They were considering making a 3rd Ghost Busters movie for 2012 release. That didn't eventuate. Still, Egon was one of my favorite ghost busters. I'll never forget that scene of them all going down the fire pole, and Egon was hanging onto it for dear life because he was petrified of it lol.

    Also, I'll never forget this scene either...

    RIP Harold.

    You've given me so many hours of entertainment and left your mark on the world.

    In memory of those we revere on the silver screen, the small screen, or in the studio, feel free to post your respects, criticisms or otherwise to those that have passed, from this date onward.

    We begin with Harold Ramis.

    May he RIP.

    Loved him in Stripes when he heckled John Candy with the Hare Krishna dance after they got their heads shaved.

    The sad thing is, as we all get older, more of these comedic greats that we grew up with and watching, will pass on :(

    Agreed. I loved the Uncle Hulka scene and where they are asked if they are homosexuals in the recruitment office and they look at each and Ramis says "no, but we are willing to learn"and Bill Murray just nods.

    Bob Hoskins has died aged 71.
    Will always live on in Who Framed Roger Rabbit. And (unfortunately) as Mario in Super Mario Bros.

    RIP Doc.
    Caught the Angels live once in the early 90's put on a great show.
    Probably one of Australia's most underrated bands I think.

    I am absolutely stunned by the number of people who don't know who Doc was. Admittedly it was the late 70's early 80's when I started watching the Angels.

    saw them heaps through the mid 80's to late 90's.

    great live band, good songs and definitely underrated.

    he was a top shelf frontman.
