Thank you, Robin. Thank you.

Yesterday I was hoping the scales had finally tipped and the internet joking had crossed into "too cruel" territory.  Unfortunately, that was not the case.  For those of you who don't know, Robin Williams passed away yesterday.

Brian and I watched Dead Poet's Society last night and I would be lying if I said I didn't get a little choked up.  RW has been on my "Famous people I'd like to have dinner with" list since the day I created one.  Robin Williams is the reason I wanted to get into acting back in the day.  And later in life, after watching DPS for the umpteenth time, it made me realize that I wanted to be a philosophy professor.

I give you a collection of gifs and pictures that make me happy and hopefully bring out all the best memories of this man.  He will be missed. 

I could go on forever.  And I would love to.  But instead I'll leave you with a few clips from Inside the Actors Studio.  If you can find it, watch the whole thing.  You won't regret it.

You will be missed Robin.

"O me! O life!... of the questions of these recurring; of the endless trains of the faithless... of cities filled with the foolish; what good amid these, O me, O life?" Answer. That you are here - that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. That the powerful play *goes on* and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be?"


  1. I watched his Inside the Actors Studio last night and played his comedy album from Spotify on my run. And cried a whole damn lot. Damn he was magnificent. This one hits too hard.

  2. I can't stop having the feeling of a broken heart. This really has made me so sad. I have cried. Lost sleep. You name it. It's as if I lost my dad. Comedy will never be the same.

  3. Truly heartbroken over the news. These gifs made me so happy and sad all at the same time knowing that he's gone. He will truly be missed. I feel like a part of my childhood has died along with him. :(
