Originally posted by Duchess64 Earlier I created a more detailed thread about Robin Williams's death in the Culture forum.
Yes and you see what whodey did to it. Not your fault, but he debased it.
Robin Williams made me laugh out loud. I don't know how Pam Dawber kept a straight face, and she barely did, sometimes, in M and M. It strikes me now that he may have been manic depressive in equally extreme measures. I am now mining those rich caverns of humor.

Perhaps whodey hated Robin Williams. whodey has said some deeply poisonous things about 'Hollywood people' on the General Forum in the past because some or many of them do not espouse the same views as whodey.
Williams made me laugh out loud too including many of his talk show appearances ~ which I have seen on YouTube ~ in some of which he made hard-hitting points about the reality of alcoholism that have lodged in my brain and affected my world view with his edgy candid humour in a way that perhaps half a dozen well made documentaries could not quite equal.
In a way that is not wholly unrelated to that, he had the ability to touch me with his 'serious acting' too thanks to the material he chose to commit to as an artist, but also because he had some inner facility to deliver performances that had emotionally valid information deep within them.
The same can be said for a lot of what came out of his mind in his rapid fire comedic style. [As I posted elsewhere]

Wow! If this is how you "tease" I can only imagine what it's like when you're being small minded and hateful.
Originally posted by whodey I have no ill will toward Robin as you suggest.
Well, if that's the case, perhaps you should have excluded him from the many vituperative, dehumanizing sweeping statements you've made about Hollywood film stars on the Debates Forum over the years. That scorn you trot out ad nauseam was what immediately sprang to mind when I saw that you had deliberately debased the thread about him. 🙂
