One of the most recognized actors and comedians in the world has passed.

Wow... sad and unexpected. He made some bad movies but he was clearly a comedy genius in stand-up.

I know...I have his albums in my iTunes library.  I think the time has arrived to put them on my iPhone and play them in his memory.

Like Rev said: Wow. Just freaking wow.

I guess it is too much to hope it wasn't a suicide.

My kid just posted that on Facebook. I thought it was crap and looked it up because Robin Williams and suicide didn't seem to fit together. I'm really bummed out about this.

Apparently he had been battling depression for years.
It's a devastating mental illness that is almost impossible to beat without meds,
and sometimes even with them.
RIP, Robin, and thanks for the many, many laughs.

Depression is a b***h and it's a lifelong struggle.

Generally those cracking wise the loudest are crying the most inside.

This certainly sucks.  Robin Williams was one of the funniest people on the planet.  

I watched so many of his movies growing up, and his stand up, and TV appearances... I can't believe he's gone.  

And I haven't even gotten over Harold Raimis dying yet.

Seems like a lot of entertainers/comedians deal with hard-core depression. It's so sad that they seem to feel there's no other solution than suicide.
This interview he gave to Marc Maron, a few years ago, is definitely worth a listen. It's pretty insightful. RIP

Something about looking over the cracks of the abyss gives some people deep insight into humor.  It's a terrible irony.

Ugh, I grew up loving Popeye and I've enjoyed many of his other movies (I think Patch Adams kinda stinks but he's not bad in it at all).  Watched The Fisher King a little while ago and I was pretty weepy through much of it.  Such a sad way to lose the man.
