He was only funny on the coke - he got famous like that, then all downhill from there.
We weren't talking about him last week
because he wasn't dead LAST WEEK!!!

Thought you might factor that in by yourself.

I love Clint Eastwood an actor, for example,
and all his stunning Spaghetti a Westerns..
but I haven't been posting about him recently on Topix ..
because he hasn't been the victim of a tragedy.

Robin Williams and The Dark Side...of Comedy

http://www.cnn.com/2014/08/12/showbiz/robin-w...

"(CNN)- By tradition, Drama is represented by two masks: the happy face of the comic muse Thalia and her sad counterpart, the tragic muse Melpomene.

If Drama were Robin Williams, you'd need a million more.

He was a mask of howling laughter, a mask of wide-eyed innocence. A sneer. A frown. Even, at times, a blank.


If it seemed like we knew what went on behind the many masks, it was because Williams' quicksilver mind and boundless talent possessed enough energy to blow them right off his face. He WAS Mork. He WAS Adrian Cronauer of "Good Morning, Vietnam." He WAS Patch Adams, and "Aladdin's" genie, and Mrs. Doubtfire.

But he was also the restrained Garp in "The World According to Garp," and the creepy Seymour Parrish in "One Hour Photo," and the firm but compassionate Sean Maguire in "Good Will Hunting," the performance that won him an Oscar.

It was that side of Williams -- something raw and vulnerable, not something manic and boisterous -- that made you wonder: who was he when he took off the mask?....."

Speak for your self maybe you didn't like Robin Williams, it doesn't mean no one else did. Why speak bad of the dead now very uncool of you to do so. Yes he had a drug problem when he was younger he got clean. Then went on to lived a productive life along the way made millions of people laugh over his career.

Robin Williams’ unexpected death on Monday was a complete shock to the world, especially because it appears to be a suicide through asphyxiation. That a man who has brought so much joy, laughter, and happiness to the world through his various acting roles – as well as his comedy and charitable giving – could be so unhappy is incomprehensible to many.

Robin Williams was raised in the Episcopalian faith by his father. His faith was important to him, but he also held no reservations in mocking his own – or others’– religious beliefs. During one of his stand up routines he would joke,“I’m an Episcopal; that’s Catholic Lite. Same religion, half the guilt!”

Not only was Robin Williams a successful comedic actor, but he also played a number of dramatic roles that touched many hearts and moved many eyes to tears. One film that particularly resonates with fans today is What Dreams May Come which featured him as a man who died and had to navigate the afterlife as his wife committed suicide. During a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything), when Robin was asked what he had learned from taking on that role, he answered:“That every moment in life is precious.”

Throughout his adult life, Robin Williams has struggled with addiction, particularly to cocaine and alcohol. He was sober for twenty years, but it was not to last. When he was 56, Robin realized that his struggle with alcohol addiction had become a problem again, and he checked himself into a rehabilitation clinic. After he came out that he admitted,“You get a real strong sense of God when you go through rehab.”

The loss of Robin Williams is a deep and great one that the entire world will suffer, and our thoughts and prayers go to his friends and family who have been most deeply affected.

Well Petal Power, many people are still shocked over Robin Williams being gone now. But one thing he left us fans is over 60 movies we can still watch and enjoy, how good he really was on the big screen.
