Today is “Administrative Professionals Day,” yet another day where a calendar suggests that we respect a certain person, when in reality we should just respect everyone who deserves it all the time for the hard work they do in any field. Anyway, Sony released a video today coinciding with the release of the 2016 version of Ghostbusters (which I previously talked about how I’m not really concerned), which focused solely on Chris Hemsworth’s character Kevin, the receptionist for the ghostbusters.
So! The trailer for the all-female reboot of Ghostbusters arrived on the ‘net recently, to “mixed” reactions, and once again I find myself smack dab in the middle of a fandom that is eating itself alive (stay classy Final Fantasy and Devil May Cry). Here we have both the initial announcement trailer, and the international one, which has some different scenes.
Harold Ramis passed away yesterday.
Since then, I’ve been trying to muster up the correct words to convey how I’ve felt about it. I’ve never really had a “beloved celebrity” of mine die before, and in full transparency, when others used to wallow in sadness over the loss of their own, I thought little of it, or quietly criticized them for caring about someone they never met, and putting more emphasis on one person’s death over the countless others that die worldwide every minute. Of course, however, with experience we obtain perspective, and now I understand a whole lot more.
