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

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

You just described me there.  Bluesad

RIP, Robin Williams.

This hits me pretty hard, as I have had to deal with substance abuse and depression, myself.  I can only hope that Mr. Williams finally escaped whatever demons were haunting him.

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

So very sad.  Bluesad

He was always a favourite actor for me. So many moving performances, so many funny ones. The clown who's crying on the inside...

RIP Robin Williams

Australian TV is burning with constant reports about Robin Williams, and starting to show movies like Mrs Doubtfire already.  A truly great comic genius.  I first saw him in Mork and Mindy, and followed him through many movies including The Dead Poets Society and The Fisher King.  His interviews with Australian talk show hosts were amazingly funny and off the wall.  In his passing, he will have the peace he was obviously seeking.

My three favorite memories of him:

His appearance as the disgraced psychiatrist Dr Cozy Carlyle in Kenneth Branagh's Dead Again (1991): his first words in the film are "F*** you: I'm on a break."  Buggedout

His appearance on stage with FIFA President Sepp Blatter during the run up to the USA Soccer World Cup: when the President handed over to him, he said "Thank you, Mr Bladder."  BounceGiggle

When he won an Oscar for Good Will Hunting, he thanked the Rabbi offstage - actually it was Billy Crystal standing there.  TeddyR

I think I am more shocked about how sad I am over this... I just cannot get his passing out of my head.  I thought he was hilarious and he has such a kind face.  I certainly hope he has found peace and is making the other side a funnier place.

My problem is that I really don't appreciate people till they're dead.

But . . .?! Having said that . . .?!

Here's a story, probably apocryphal, but it does speak to so many funny people.

A man went to a doctor.
"Doctor, I am so sad, and I do not know what to do."
"All you need to do is to find someone who'll make you laugh. Go see the great clown Grimaldi, who is playing in this city. He'll cure you of your sadness."
"Doctor, I am Grimaldi."

R.I.P. Robin. You will be missed.

RIP Robin Williams. 

In a bit of irony, I've had a relative watching Moscow on the Hudson every day for a week before he passed.

ROBIN WILLIAMS died the same night as my sister-in-law.  I have not been able to process his loss, a major talent and genius is gone now.  We miss you ROBIN

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
