    Robin Williams{RIP} on Canada

    For my buddy Troll....one of the late Robin Williams, who sadly offed himself today from depression, drugs, alcohol, related issues....this is one of my favorite Stand Up Routines of his, about Canada: Caution for you with sensitive ears...F~Bombs throughout.

    This end of the trail isn't always easy or comforting. There is no romance in leaving a desiccated, wrinkled up old corpse

    I have been an avid Robin Williams fan since Mork and Mindy days. So sad to learn once again that another gifted comedian has had a long struggle with depression. As a simple kid I always thought comedians must be really happy fun people. Often not so. May have to go rent a classic like "Patch Adams" or something to relive the magic of his brilliant improvisational style.

    I had recently read that he was close to bankrupt from two nasty divorces. Hard to imagine how a person who has made so many films and comedy appearances could possibly be broke, he never had a brake in his career where he was not working on something. Also pretty hard to fathom how a person with such talent can fall so deeply into depression.

    R. I. P. Robin but I wish you could have stayed and fought rather than cut and run.

    This is sad. The thing is that there is a lot of sadness through out the world. For example right now there are mothers and fathers watching their children being decapitated somewhere in Iraq. Even here on this site we have individuals grieving for loved ones who through no fault of their own, are gone. Sad. ...But with Williams, what a waste. So much talent, so much wealth, and nothing to show for it, but depression, divorce and suicide. Understand this is NOT meant to be critical, yes, it sounds critical, and yes I understand depression is a serious condition. No stock or easy answers here. I guess I don't understand these things. But what I do know is that without some purpose, outside of the trappings of this life, what's the point. Money, Sex, Fame, Power, yeah, they are all fun for a time, (especially the sex) but it just doesn't seem to cut it in the long run. (I wouldn't mind giving the money and power thing a test run though.)

    Sad.

    Just give me the money, I'll buy the power. My reply to those idiots who preach money can't buy happiness is broke can't buy shit.

    I'd like to think that money would buy me a great deal more happiness than I now have but would not change much in my life. Sure, the wife could retire and we could do some traveling we want to do but as far as sex, drugs, gambling and a lot of the other sins, never gonna happen. We enjoy cocktails on a very limited basis and that would not change.
