Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Thursday, December 30, 2020

Thanks to my officemate Jamie, I have the lyrics from “On Our Own”, the signature song from Ghostbusters II, rattling around my skull.

Not all the lyrics, mind you. Just the rap hook:

Too hot to handle
Too cold to hold
They’re called the Ghostbusters
And they’re in control

So, I can handle that. I don’t think I’d be able to handle it if it were these lyrics plaguing me instead:

Found out about Vigo
The master of evil
Try to battle my boys
That’s not legal

Bobby Brown never sounded so good.

Ghostbusters II holds a special place in my memory banks: It’s the first-ever movie I walked out on, some 12 years ago now. I’ve blocked out most of it, but I remember enduring about an hour of it. Finally, I leaned over to the friend I was with, and said something like, “Man, I swear, if the Statue of Liberty ends up coming alive and walking around, I am the fuck out of here!”

Sure enough, the Statue walked. And then, so did I. ‘Cause that’s not legal.

  1. First of all thank you for taking the time to read & leave a comment on my blog. I’ve tried Haloscan and it’s good. I guess it really doesn’t matter much cuz those who wish to receive a reply usually leave their URLs. Thanks for your suggestion though!
    By the way, it cracked me up, the way you tlaked about the Statue of Liberty. ;)
