Ernie Hudson Talks About ‘Ghostbusters’ – The Lost Interview

April 6, 2012

Here’s the second lost “Ghostbusters” interview from the magazine feature I was never paid for. Enjoy…

Read the Lost Harold Ramis Interview

Gordon Holmes: It’s been 20 years since the Ghostbusters last rolled into action, was it tough to get back into character?
Ernie Hudson: No, to me Winston was very specific, the kind of guy he was and his approach to life. I think once you get that sense of a guy’s perspective on the world it’s just part of who you are. Every character is a little bit different. But, I like Winston, he’s got sort of a laid back approach to things compared to everyone around him. So, it was fun to get back into the character and explore it a little bit.

Harold Ramis Talks About ‘Ghostbusters’ – The Lost Interview

January 27, 2012

Was digging through some old files the other day and came across some interviews I’d done with “Ghostbusters” stars Harold Ramis (Egon Spengler) and Ernie Hudson (Winston Zeddemore) back in 2009. The purpose of these interviews was to discuss the then soon-to-be-released “Ghostbusters: The Video Game.”

While I was skimming through the interviews, I realized that less than a quarter of the content had been used in the article I wrote for a now-defunct magazine.

Then I realized that “Ghostbusters” fans might get a kick out of them even though they are nearly three years old.

Then I realized that the magazine became defunct before I was paid.

So, screw the magazine, here’s the first interview…

Why I Hope 2012 Is/Isn’t the End of the World

January 4, 2012

So, apparently the whole wide world is going “bye-bye” on December 21, 2012. Don’t believe me? Mayans totally predicted this a billion years ago.

Now, while this fate seems harsh, I’d like to take this opportunity to take a look at some of the good things that could come from our impending doom. (I’m a glass-is-half-full kind of a guy.)

And, in case the planet doesn’t get its torch snuffed, I’ve included some good things that’ll come from life in 2013 and beyond…

Things My Future House Will Have

September 16, 2011

The alliance partner and I have been discussing looking for a new place to live. We love the ancient house we’re in now, but it’s become less practical for a few reasons I won’t go into here.

So, I guess the first thing on my to-do list is to figure out what kinds of things I’d want out of a new house. Here’s what I’ve come up with so far…

The Single Greatest Thing at NY Toy Fair 2011

So, after walking up and down the halls of New York’s Javits Center for twelve straight hours, I’m comfortable in saying that the greatest new find wasn’t on a shelf or in a cabinet…it’s was buried in a Kotobukiya brochure.

Now, I’m not sure how a Ghostbusters jumpsuit would get so horribly mangled, but I’m sure they have some clever backstory.

And yes, I may have only been half kidding about that Sassy “Ghostbusters” Costume article a while ago…

An Open Letter to Will Smith

January 28, 2011

Dear Mr. Smith,

When I was a kid, you’d often hear this exchange in the Holmes household.

Little Gordon: Mom, I’m done watching “Ghostbusters.”
Gordon’s Mom: Did you like it?
Little Gordon: It was awesome!
Gordon’s Mom: Good, now go outside and pretend you’re a Ghostbuster while mommy finishes up this box of wine.

Then I’d rush outside and take down imaginary full-torso free-roaming vapors with a stick I was pretending was a neutrona wand. Good times for sure.

What Are You Supposed to Be, Some Kind of a Cosmonaut?

October 9, 2010

Being an adult kind of sucks. You don’t have any free time, everything you eat is trying to kill you, and holidays hit the toilet.

Think about it, have you ever had a Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanza/Festivus that was better than the ones you had as a kid? Doubtful. The beef jerky and Drakkar Noir I got last Christmas can’t hold a jug of moonshine to the “Dukes of Hazzard” slot car racing set that features a General Lee that jumps off a ramp I received in my youth.

Quick Note: Mom, I love you, but the Drakkar Noir has to stop. I haven’t worn it since Jr. High.

That being said, there is one holiday that doesn’t necessarily get worse. Halloween is still pretty awesome, but for much different reasons. When you were a kid, Halloween meant eating candy and getting to wear a cool costume. As an adult, Halloween means having a few soda pops and getting to see your female friends wear (as Madison Avenue now calls them) “sassy” costumes.
