Happy Birthday, Bill Murray!

Who turns 57 today.

Growing up as a teenager in the 1980's, Murray taught me two valuable lessons: the appeal of a wry sense of humor and the importance of being yourself and not caring what other people will think of you.


Submitted for your approval. Bill's two most inspirational speeches on film.

From "Meatballs":

And from "Stripes" (which kicks in at the 2:30 mark):

I'll leave it to you all to choose your favorite. Have a great one, Bill!

Yips! from Robbo: Aaaaand since we get an awful lot of google traffic from people who don't know the difference between Llama and Lama, here's another classik:

I'll light the fuse and stand back by saying that Bill's Spangler is about the only thing really worth watching in this flik.

Nit-picky Yips! back from Gary:
Actually, the name's Spackler...Carl Spackler. But I assume you got tripped up by the name of Bill's co-Ghostbuster Egon Spengler (not to be confused with noted German historian, Oswald Spengler. But that's a whole other post...)

Yips! from Robbo: Whoops! My dangerously shallow knowledge of cool is showing again. As Zaphod Beeblebrox said of the waiter at Milliway's, I'm so un-hip it's a wonder my bum doesn't fall off.

I would agree that Murray is the only thing worth watching in the movie but well worth it!
Some of the funniest lines of all time.

And, who nearing the big five-O could forget the "Four Floggin' Beats!" SNL sketch? Or the "noogies" sketches?

He was sublime in Lost in Translation, too, and I'm not just saying that because I got to see Scarlett Johannson's ass, either... OK, that WAS a big selling point for me, but still.

I actually thought the other speech from STRIPES was better. "We're not going to Moscow, it's Yugoslavia, it's like going to Wisconsin." (You can tell he is from Chicago) "What have they got? They've got a tank and a bunch of Barishnakovs in itchy woolen suits. We've got one heavily-armed recreational vehicle."

Actually that may be 2 separate speeches on the same topic - convincing the others to go along with his plans.

I just found this blog and it's a damn good one! Yep, I agree that Mr. Murray is sublime in the understated and never seems to be fake, and we don't care for fake now do we?! Thanks also for the Fonzie clip- I've heard the saying "jumped the shark" but I'm one of the few Happy Days fans that was probably having sex w/ a woman I just met at Target while that show aired. Hearing the music alone should be proof why that show was DONE! :)

Just a short and extremely nerdy correction re. Robbo's comment about Zaphod Beeblebrox's comment about hipness- he actually said to the waiter, "Sheesh, you guys are so unhip it's a wonder your bums don't fall off".(I am sitting typing this in a PC room in China, but I can still clearly remember that line!)

"True nerdhood does not consist of winning a Klingon speech competition- it is being the judge at a Klingon speech competition that counts".
