You know what this is going to be about. Countless others have written about it moments before I have, are writing about it now, will write about it. I think a lot of us felt like we knew Robin Williams because we grew up with his movies.
He was a funny guy – an artist. Coked up, sober, whatever, the dude knew comedy. And drama. Some of his best works were drama. But man, he had his demons. Depression is a real bitch. Depression can go suck a dick.
He was one of my inspirations to start writing comedy in high school. I’ll never be as good at it as he was, but I can try, at least. I don’t know what else to say. It’s heartbreaking.
