I'm sure y'all saw this on Facebook and what not

but I figured we can get some use out of the forums again and all that.

Anyways, RIP Mr. Williams, you shall be missed.

Such a sad and lonely way to die. I'm seeing people reference the Pagliacci joke. It's a little too fitting.

the actual page from the book is going viral on reddit too.

RIP Robin, even when he was in god awful movies, I enjoyed them when he was on screen, and that's the hallmark of a great performer.

Flubber, Jumanji, Jack, Hook, Aladdin, Ms.Doubtfire, etc etc...

This dude was instrumental in shaping my childhood.

Same, and add to that: Popeye, Nine Months, What Dreams May Come. And as a teen: Good Will Hunting, Death to Smoochy, One Hour Photo, Insomnia, Night at the Museum, The Fisher King. And more recently: World's Greatest Dad, Hamlet, his appearance on Louie. I didn't love all the movies he was in, but he was one of the first actors I recognized as an actor, and if it was in a movie, I knew there was a chance it'd be funny or that at least, he'd be the best part. I really loved his work.

Good Morning Vietnam deserves a mention, as does Awakenings.

I haven't seen either in a long, long time. Since I was like 14, and it was very late at night/early in the morning, so I don't remember much of either. I should really watch both again.

I revisited the Pecos Bill picture book that he narrated. I know it's an obscure choice, but it's the earliest memory of Robin Williams that I've got, and a pristine example of his talent as a voice artist.

Also, I went and watched the DVD of his Live on Broadway show. It defined my college years in so many ways and got me through a lot of tough times, and it's getting me through this just fine.

Just thought I'd post this. It's Williams' appearance on Louie. Very poignant: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0asL5VaWzM0

I have been noticing that I think Robin Williams had a long standing fascination with death, pretty much every movie he was in, barring comedies, either had him surrounded by death, dead, dying, or seeking death himself.
