Normally people in the entertainment industry offing themselves doesn't surprise me. Lives filled with drugs, fakeness and no caring for others seems to lead to crap like that, especially with those under 30. Sudden revalations of how pathetic one has lead their life can be overwhelming, and for minds that aren't mature enough to handle this sudden burst of reality it sometimes leads to shit like what happened today..
Caught me totally of guard when it was reported by multiple sources that Robin Williams succumbed to this state of mind today. A permanent solution to his pain.
I didn't know the guy. Chances are no one here knew the guy. All I know is that he made me laugh, think, and sometimes get a little emotional in the way that he played his characters.
My favorite moments watching him was when he was doing improv. Talk shows, stand up, look it up if you haven't seen it, but damn that dude was one of the funniest guys I have ever seen. His passion for what he did made him such a believable person, and from everything I am seeing now all over the web, that was how he really was.
I haven't really ever felt this much sadness for a public personality. In my mind, Robin Williams was a legend, more so than any other actor/musician/politician I've ever watched. I will never forget the laughter he gave me, nor will I forget the seriousness and excitement he portrayed in so many of his films....
No more words to be said. I shall end this post by standing on my chair, looking towards the sky and quoting one of my favorite movies of all time.
Oh captain, my captain.
Rest in peace Robin Williams....you will be missed.
So much talent, so many stories left untold.
What a shameful waste.
Shameful waste seems like harsh terms to me. Frustrating for sure. For someone who thrived on making people happy, yet was so miserable in their own life, thats what gets me. The f%$#@&! Kardasians got more attention than what he did this last few years. We as a society love to hate and hate to love it seems. More publicity on negativity rather than what makes us happy. Others feeling bad is what feels so good. THAT is a shameful waste...
"It saddens me to hear that a man who gave the world so much happiness could not find it himself." -R.I.P Robin Williams
I don't know who said it, but it is true

If you can't make it good, at least make it look good.
