Bill on how to drink champagne

I learned how to drink champagne a while ago. But the way I like to drink champagne is I like to make what we call a Montana Cooler, where you buy a case of champagne and you take all the bottles out, and you take all the cardboard out, and you put a garbage bag inside of it, then you put all the bottles back in and then you cover it with ice, and then you wrap it up and you close it. And that will keep it all cold for a weekend and you can drink every single bottle. And the way I like to drink it in a big pint glass with ice. I fill it with ice and I pour the champagne in it, because champagne can never be too cold. And the problem people have with champagne is they drink it and they crash with it, because the sugar content is so high and you get really dehydrated. But if you can get the ice in it, you can drink it supremely cold and at the same time you’re getting the melting ice, so it’s like a hydration level, and you can stay at this great level for a whole weekend. You don’t want to crash. You want to keep that buzz, that bling, that smile.

Bill on the passing of Harold Ramis

“Harold Ramis and I together did the National Lampoon Show off Broadway, Meatballs, Stripes, Caddyshack, Ghostbusters and Groundhog Day. He earned his keep on this planet. God bless him.”
Short, but sweet. RIP Harold Ramis.

Bill kissing a tattoo of his name

I don't really think that the context of this situation will help much, but here it is:
So you get the Bill Murray tattoo and then the next day, you meet him. What was his reaction?Tom Kelly: We were at the top of the balcony at Letterman watching him do his rehearsals because he flew in as Peter Pan on a fucking zip line and shit. One of the Letterman people came up to him and he went, “Who’s playing tonight?” And she went, “Eagulls” and he went, “The Eagles?!” And she went, “No.” And he goes, “Oh, that sucks.” And then she said, “One of them’s actually got a tattoo with your name on it” and he said, “I hope it’s temporary.” I was shitting myself after that. I thought, “What happens if I show him it and he tells me to fuck off?”So you then you showed him the tattoo…Tom: He was talking to someone and it was getting towards the end of the night and I didn’t think I had much time left to do it so I was running quickly and I was like, “Bill, look at this!”Yeah, that’s what every celebrity wants, for some guy to run up and be like, “Look at this! It’s not a gun or anything!”Tom: Yeah, I start undoing my pants, “Bill, look at this!”So what was his reaction?Mark: He shook his head, laughed, and kissed it.(Via)

Bill Murray's Reddit AMA

Last night, Bill Murray pleasantly surprised us with a Reddit AMA in an effort to promote The Monuments Men. View the whole AMA here, and read below for a few highlights:

On Wes Anderson:
“I really love the way Wes writes with his collaborators, I like the way he shoots, and I like HIM,” Murray said. “I've become so fond of him. I love the way that he has made his art his life. And you know, it's a lesson to all of us, to take what you love and make it the way you live your life, and that way you bring love into the world.”

At the time it came out, Groundhog Day was underrated:
“The script is one of the greatest conceptual scripts I've ever seen,” he wrote. “It's a script that was so unique, so original, and yet it got no acclaim. To me it was no question that it was the greatest script of the year. To this day people are talking about it, but they forget no one paid any attention to it at the time. The execution of the script, there were great people in it.”
Interesting thoughts on marijuana:
When asked what he thought about the recreational use of marijuana, Murray didn't exactly answer the question—instead, he discussed the American penal system and the failure of the war on drugs. "Now that we have crack and crystal and whatnot, people don't even think about marijuana anymore, it's like someone watching too many videogames in comparison," he said. "The fact that states are passing laws allowing it means that its threat has been over-exaggerated. Psychologists recommend smoking marijuana rather than drinking if you are in a stressful situation. These are ancient remedies, alcohol and smoking, and they only started passing laws against them 100 years ago."
Pickles and peanut butter:

"I'm big on pickles, but I've never had them with peanut butter," he says. "I really like peanut butter though. I'm kind of surprised because I like them both so much that I haven't combined them.”

When one user asked Murray what it was like to be so awesome, Murray replied, “Nothing prepared me for being this awesome. It's kind of a shock. It's kind of a shock to wake up every morning and be bathed in this purple light.”
