re: Robin Williams Committed Suicide (1951 - 2014) (110 comments)

I’m glad you pulled out of your PPD. My mother suffered from that after the birth of my younger sibling and it’s scary to watch someone you love get pulled into this dark place where you cannot reach them. You can see them but you can’t touch them. You know what I mean.

Some people go into the darkness and find a way out. Some go in and become lost. Robin lost his way after a long fight. The battle wears you down.

I’m glad we had as many years of him sharing his gift with the world as we did and wish he’d found a way to give us more.

You know, there are times when the best thing to do is just shut your fucking mouth. This was one of those times.

Depression is a beast that hounds you, sinks its teeth into you, and tries to drag you with it down into a deep dark hole in the ground, where it will swallow you.

If you haven’t experienced that–and I don’t mean sadness, which is transitory, or even mourning or grief, but an all-consuming soul-ripping darkness from which no light can possibly escape–you cannot understand, and you have no right to judge those who have felt the teeth of this beast.

Some survive the beast. Some don’t. No one gets out without scars. That’s how it is.

I lived in the Bay Area and, like many people there, had a “close encounter” with Robin Williams. He was always kind and gentle with people. Always. It was part of his nature.

Having seen him up close, I got the sense there was some pain and darkness lurking behind the clowning. It seems that pain fuels the talent of our best comedians, which is why they seem to understand our own fears and hurts so well.

Robin had many other sides to his personality and was a troubled man, there is no doubt, but he was a comic genius and a gifted actor. I don’t use the word “genius” lightly. Those with his talent are few and far between. You will not see his like again.

I was at the funeral of someone very close to me just last month, much younger than Robin Williams, and also dead by suicide. This is what I said then and it applies now:

“The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry.”

― Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms (suicide at the age of 62)

She dodged the draft by marrying her goddamned cousin and now poses as a rabid Zionist (when it doesn’t interfere with a modelling gig). Fuck her.

Once again: Nolte is suffering from multiple sclerosis. He’s seeking treatment now but it’s been complicated by his drinking. One side-effect of MS is depression and Nolte has been self-medicating (drinking booze) for that.

I posted this assertion a couple of months ago and people here went apeshit and said it wasn’t true. How about now, you motherfuckers?

If Bryan Singer hadn’t become a famous director, I’d imagine he’d be the drama teacher at a high school in the San Fernando Valley who always wants the boys to hang out with him afterwards in the theatre props room.
