R.I.P. Robin Williams

<< < (5/5)

Great Obit by Russell Brand

Is it melancholy to think that a world that Robin Williams can’t live in must be broken? To tie this sad event to the overarching misery of our times? No academic would co-sign a theory in which the tumult of our fractured and unhappy planet is causing the inherently hilarious to end their lives, though I did read that suicide among the middle-aged increased inexplicably in 1999 and has been rising ever since. Is it a condition of our era?

Russel Brand never ceases to amaze me...I used to think "Wow...just another drug crazed 'funny man'" and yet, his insightful and intellectual comments make me realize that I was a complete asshole for judging a book by its cover.

On the main note:  Robin touched many generations and was an amazing actor and comedian and will be sadly missed by a LOT of people.

Rest in Peace dude, and I hope you are up there making all our lost loved ones laugh.

Bizarre coincidence - Family Guy episode that aired while the news broke had Robin Williams in it committing suicide.
