    Have you seen What Dreams May Come?

    If you haven't, it's..just truly remarkable. Incredibly sad, but a beautiful movie. You see him in a different light.

    Yeah, beautiful movie like mystical with Cuba Gooding Jr. Williams was a comic that comedy would just flow out of him, he actually made u LOL. Awakening and hour photo were two of his better acting roles.

    One Hour Photo was so thrilling and creepy. I loved it!

    My jaw hit the floor watching the news about Robin Williams on TV. Stunned isn't a strong enough word. I remember watching Williams on Mork & Mindy when I was kid. He had a lot of really good films, but my favorite has always been Dead Poets Society.

    R.I.P. Robin Williams. He had a lot of personal struggles in his life, but hopefully he's at peace now.

    He has, and he did. But he kicked drugs (cocaine) over 30 years ago, as he did alcohol at the same time. Unfortunately, he had a relapse with alcohol (but not cocaine) after 20 years of sobriety, around 2002-03, when working on Insomnia in Alaska. But after 3 years and family intervention, he went back into residential rehab in 2006.

    At the risk of sounding like a "know it all", I only know this because upon hearing the news earlier, I looked up a couple interviews with him from a couple years ago in which he wanted to talk about it.

    So, for reasons known only to him (or maybe not known to him), his recurring bouts of depression apparently took control, even though he was a successful, if chronic, fighter of his addictions.

    This has hit me hard, as it has many of us here and elsewhere.

    At least Johnathan Winters, an idol of Williams (and me) passed when he was 88 (16 months ago, to the day). Even with his demons (and he had many, spent time in an institution--twice--when much younger), he had a life in full.

    Robin passed too young, with more to give us. Nano nano, Robin.

    I know this is a little late (I was on vacation) but he was just diagnosed with Parkinson's. I loved watching him there isn't a time that he didn't make me want to roll on the floor.
