For your bemusement, check out my most recent Bostonist post:
Boston (or a certain portion thereof) is abuzz with the opening of the new House of Blues on Landsdowne Street, which if you’ll recall we were unable to appreciate due to certain screw-ups during the sneak preview.
Actor, comedian, and Canadian Dan Aykroyd is a partner of the chain, and so Jonathon Soroff interviewed him in the latest Improper Bostonian. These days, pretty much any interview with Aykroyd is comedy gold, thanks to his weird beliefs in alien visitors, ghosts, and crystal skulls with magical healing powers possibly originating from the lost civilization of Atlantis.
No, seriously, please click the previous link and watch the unintentionally hilarious sales video, which writer and Brookline native John Hodgman described as such:
NOT SINCE Dick Van Patten’s Hobo Chili for Dogs have I confronted a product so strange and marvelously implausible that I feel robbed somehow of what might have been a beautiful, sublime joke, were it not all so undeniably real.
In the brief Improper interview Aykroyd mentions his interest and belief in ghosts and psychics, but the best quote has got to be this: “David Blaine has done a lot of work, and he really does levitate.”
