Title: Robin Williams commits suicide
Post by: Fongstarr. on August 11, 2014, 04:12:03 PM
Holy shit! One of my favorite actors and comedians ever:

http://insidemovies.ew.com/2014/08/11/robin-williams-dead-at-63/ (http://insidemovies.ew.com/2014/08/11/robin-williams-dead-at-63/)

Quote
Oscar winner and comedian Robin Williams died this morning at 63. While his publicist wouldn?t confirm that his death was a suicide, a rep did issue this statement. ?Robin Williams passed away this morning. He has been battling severe depression of late. This is a tragic and sudden loss. The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time.?
Williams, who won an Oscar for his supporting role in Good Will Hunting, will reprise his role as Theodore Roosevelt in the third installment of Night at the Museum this December. He had recently signed on to reprise his beloved role as Mrs. Doubtfire in a sequel to be directed by Chris Columbus, and was last seen opposite Annette Bening in the indie film The Face of Love. His sitcom The Crazy Ones premiered on CBS last fall, but was not picked up for a second season.
According to a press release issued by the Marin County Coronor?s office, the Sheriff?s office suspects the death to be ?suicide due to asphyxia.? The 9-1-1 phone call came in just before noon today.

Unlike a lot of celebrity deaths, I'm actually pretty upset by this one. He always seemed like a really good guy to me. Also, whenever I watched his movies and his characters were sad, upset, etc., it just felt so real, almost too real. That's sort of eery I guess.

Agreed. I'm bummed. We recorded him last year for the launch of that terrible show he was on and he was the sweetest man. He was really quiet and friendly. I couldn't believe how kind he was. :(

Pan the fucking man! Literally one of my childhood movie stars growing up. Even saw him once shopping at SF and ironically buying a skateboard at FTC. I was told he always bought his kids stuff on Haight St and even wore streetwear stuff himself. Seemed like a rad guy.

i know exactly what you mean. like you could see the pain in his eyes, even when doing comedies.

i'm so bummed about this.  Mrs Doubtfire, Jumanji, What Dreams May Come, Bicentennial Man and Death To Smoochy are some of my favorites.

as a kid, i watched Mrs Doubtfire on VHS almost every day. the movie had so many classic scenes, but this one was the best.

I know exactly what you mean and I think that's what's really getting me. Not only that, but the fact that he loved to put smiles on peoples' faces despite everything he was dealing with inside. He was a truly great person and I know lots of people are missing him right now. I'll admit that I just got done crying about it and I don't even care because someone like him is completely deserving of it.

Was talking about suicide  few days ago and today we received the news that Robin Williams killed himself. Now  We living in society is to live in a status of neurosis, as Freud and Nietzsche said, suicide today is no more than a banality, in a society that God does not make any difference. Religion had always been the trump card of punishment, however, this and other dogmas are being sprayed by pragmatic capitalism and an irrational and materialistic philosophy. Capitalism still propagates sentimentality days as parents because it gives profit when it is no economic value also will not make the most difference. The nihilism, the denial of life, lack of direction.

Its weird when i think back and realize Robin Williams has played such an important role in movies that span the years of my childhood to adulthood. This is one of my favorite movies of all time and its mostly because of how good his character is in it.

RIP to a truly gifted individual

Often the case with comedians.

He seemed like he had a good heart. He positively affected a hell of a lot of people. I only hope he was aware of that before he died.

Such a bummer. Watched him heavily in Hook and Jumanji growing up. I was looking at watches at Macy's on Christmas eve one year and he walks around this wall and stands right next to me. I admit i was starstruck but 'Hey, hows it going?"  came out of my mouth without thinking twice. He was real friendly and said the same back and shook my hand. My dad and I both noticed how hairy his hands were and how red his eyes were.

yeah, my exwife and i once had this conversation how he was so uncomfortable being himself that he nonstop kept up the banter. i said some awful stuff but over time he won me over [after liking him as mork as a child]. death to smoochy, goodwill hunting and all those serious roles where i could empathize w/ him instead of him distracting us from his misery via manic jokes fired out all staccato.
the man underneath seemed decent and hurt. i'm especially partial to his cameo on SVU as merritt rook aka detective milgram. he warned us about autopilot 'just following orders' existence.

One of my favorite performances of his was during the first season of Homicide, he played the husband of a murder victim.  First time i had seen him in a serious role and it was seriously moving.  Also, recently listened to the WTF podcast with him and he's a very likeable guy.  Great stand up comedian as well.

Loved him in the Fisher King.

And if you're old enough to remember his debut on Happy Days which lead to Mork n Mindy... nanu nanu.

Rest in Peace

my friend was working crew park on one of his movies, aka 14 hours of standing in a forest watching the crews vehicles while they worked. robin called him over on the first day and gave him a quarter ounce of weed to make his day better. sounded like a pretty sweet man. I also agree with max power, I actually forgot he did those ones. rip

Post by: sexualhelon on August 11, 2014, 07:35:53 PM
You can really see it in his face, especially now, with his emotions when you re-watch his movies. The best actors always have the relative experience to pull from in order to reach certain depths and the best comedians are always so depressed. What they say is funny, genuine, but their frustrations are relative to so many people who just don't have the courage to stand up and say it to the world. They're pulling from something real to them. Jim Carrey's quote come's to mind, "I wish everyone could get rich and famous and do everything they ever dreamed of so they can see it's not the answer". Surely Robin Williams started in comedy and acting because they were his passions, his release, and he never planned to become who he became along with earning what he earned. At this point in his life he had probably done everything he ever dreamed he would do but even before that was never truly happy. It's funny because I talk to some people about traveling the world on the means I had and they say, "wouldn't it have been better to fly in your own private jet, stay in luxurious hotels, have sex with supermodels, etc..." but they forget about the experience, the hardships, and the relationships bonded. It's like when you're younger having sex with every hot girl is your goal, it's great, but then you realize it was never as good as with the woman you actually love even if she's not the most attractive woman you've ever been with. I can see how even a millionaire would be depressed. They can have everything and yet nothing at all.  

RIP Robin Williams

I'm not defending tracer, but suicide is a very selfish act towards the people affected by it, I don't get how people can do it without thinking of the pain and suffering they will leave behind for others; but I also guess being very depressive would lead you to think that others are better off without you. I by no means think people who kill themselves are "pussies" but not seeking help and taking the easy way out can be seen as somewhat cowardly. I had a friend who killed himself and whilst I was upset I also saw it as a very selfish thing to do.

I do believe people who commit suicide think how it effects other people , its not like they just decide at the spur of the moment that they are going to end it . They are usually caught in a situation / depression so bad that they think the only solution is to end the pain , even though it might hurt others . People who go through years of therapy / counseling and people on correct medication still kill themselves

I dont think its a cowardly thing to do either , its not easy to end your own life .

Another point of view would be that its the survivors who are selfish , a person who doesnt want to live anymore and only has to do it because other people cant handle the loss of them ?. But I do think that with help from friends, family and professionals most people want to stay alive in the end

so did they determine if he did it by hanging himself? not to sounds like a total dick, but hanging was the first thing that came to my mind when i heard he committed suicide. like everyone has said, you could easily see his misery through his acting and especially his stand up. i feel when people are as depressed as that, they dont choose a method that gives much chance for survival. i know i probably sound fucked up, but i swear im not trying to be a dick or anything, just my thoughts.

on the suicide being selfish thing, i kind of disagree to an extent. i think if someone chooses to end their own life, theyve probably thought about it for a very long time. like someone else already said, its not some spur of the moment thing that people just do after having a bad day. i would assume those people have experienced pain and suffering for so long, much more than most people have dealt with, and have probably held out as long as they could hoping that it will get better, but it just doesnt. not that i think suicide is the right choice for someone in that kind of situation, but if you were that person, do you think you could go on suffering forever just so someone else doesnt have to? i just feel like people have breaking points and i sympathize with that. not saying that i support suicide or anything, but calling someone selfish for taking their own life isnt something i totally agree with.


overall, its a tragic loss. robin williams has been such an amazing entertainer to so many people for such a long time. i cant imagine anyone who hasnt fallen in love with any of his rolls. i know ive enjoyed his acting since i was a child and hes played so many unforgettable rolls. definitely one of the greatest of all time.

As someone who's been at the point of suicide and dealt with heavy depression, I was not surprised to hear this. A lot of people are very good at covering it up, which only increases your depression. Suicide ain't no joke, you never know what someone's going through.

I could always see the sorrow he kept beneath the surface. It's always been really palpable.

You are right man... You could see his pain.

Great actor.

This shit has got me twisted up.  I'd have never thought him capable, and yet I'm not surprised all at once.  It's crazy, if this hadn't happened I can confidently say I don't think I'd have ever had another thought of Robin Williams, but now his roles and his work are just flooding my mind and it's kind of overwhelming.  I'm terribly saddened by this news.  I'm pretty sure I'm even guilty of attempting to dislike him (to no avail,) but somehow his goofiness, warmth, and sincerity catch me off guard and before I know it I'm actually enjoying garbage like RV simply because he was a part of it.  Jumanji, Hook, Goodwill Hunting, Dead Poets Society, Patch Adams, What Dreams May Come, Mrs. Doubtfire...  Hell, I just watched The Birdcage just a week or so ago on netflix for the first time.  Rest in peace, Robin.

Being super famous must suck ass, can't go anywhere without hordes of people recognizing you. They even remember the minor details like buying a fucking DGK hat at a skateshop.

No privacy, everyone on your nuts 24/7, dealing with agents, taking pictures of you. His mental health and substance use has been in the news for years, it's noone's business. These news stations do more harm then good, do I think paparazzi killed him? No, but they sure played a part.

Imagine having whatever demons and trying to cope with it, it's hard enough and suddenly the entire world knows? Unimaginable pain I would imagine.

this is a great point. western society, or at least what ive known suggests that happiness is found through success. that is false. the truth is that success helps reinforce positive thinking. without positive thinking you dont have shit, the end of robins life being a tragic example.
if you want to be happy, you have to fucking work for it. not physically, although that helps. some people seem to be naturally pre-disposed to depression (runs in families etc). unfortunately for them, they have to fight harder. they must ignore negative thoughts the second they catch themselves thinking them, and think about something else.

it sounds fucking ridiculous for anyone who is going thru it, but its your only option. the longer you let your mind run in negative thought cycles, the deeper the tracks get. these days, being angry is the best i can do most of the time, but im working on it and thats much better than crippling sadness. i see plenty of people on this site who have said they have depression issues do nothing about it and treat it like the world owes them happiness, and everyone else has just been blessed with happiness.

anti depressants have been shown to be roughly as helpful as placebos, except in rare cases.
honestly i think the only thing you can do for someone is call them out on their bullshit mental patterns (that is, if you can even recognize them) and show them there is another way of thinking.

look into buddhism or positive thinking literature if this shit hurts you. all it teaches is that you have control of your mind, not anyone or anything else.

fucking smile, even if it feels retarded. it will make you feel better.

I think, isn't the desire to harm oneself a harmful thing and thereby ailment? I don't know. I don't think I'll ever know.

^ It is real. I've struggled with it since puberty. I still sometimes have thoughts of suicide but I've found ways of distracting myself from that negativity. Skateboarding, art, and playing music are my distractions and the building blocks of my life. I've equated it to being an escape artist. I have a wonderful wife who deserves someone who is not a mess. I realized after losing a close friend to suicide that it was my responsibility to find happiness and to fight my tendency to be cynical and misanthropic. I'm kind of a shut in if I let myself be.

Most people who commit suicide have been battling the thought of doing it for a long time. My little brother hanged himself and the first thing I had to do was forgive him. I posted something about it on here and everyone was really kind in their responses. That's why I love this board. Everyone can talk shit but most pals come together when something real shitty happens. I also saw Robin Williams on 19th and Geary one day and I did a double take, he gave me a smile and then took his little boy into the comic book store. RIP

shit man i relate to you entirely.
its important to realize that you can destroy yourself if you let your mind roam free.
ive been in places where i thought suicide was inevitable, but only because that was the option i was constantly presenting myself.

im still afraid that its gonna come back (its come back a lot of times) but when i actually look after myself (no drugs, eating somewhat decently, sleeping etc) it seems to stay away. i am lucky.

i have to admit i have never met someone who is severely depressed that is doing everything they can for themselves, but im sure they are out there.

it is really hard to do everything you can for yourself, i dont wanna sound like i am judging anyone for how they live.
the worst part is that it has a sickening momentum. the more depressed you get, the less you feel like caring so you get more and more depressed as you give up on shit.

jeesh woodsman, my heart goes out to ya guy!
i have every reason to dislike my younger brother but that would be hard to deal w/ even though longterm i think it'd be a boon to the family [objectively]. i'm no ayn rand though, so i can imagine that being one of the more terrible things to go through.
i support suicide in theory, try everything and if nothing cheers you up......
i keep it in mind constantly, an escape valve if i get too isolated or too deep of doodoo. if i had to do 10 yrs or more i'd prolly try to off myself. i think wanting to outlive enemies will keep me from doing it for a while although i'm kinda 'happy go lucky' when i shoot up and by the grace of good people around me i've been brought back to life a dozen plus times.
i'd try to talk anyone out of it but that's my selfishness. 'stick around you bring some measure of happiness to me'.

please don't joke about suffering so cruelly. please, it hurts my heart to see it and I cannot (due to my enfeebled will) imagine how it hurts the jokers heart to make such meanness said.
I watched Good Will Hunting last night, and I feel really present. I contacted my father, and we concluded our talk with our catchphrase "ever stalwart".
I think about Hook and Dead Poet's, I think about dead poets, I think about actors, I think about humans, I think about animals and ecosystems, and I think about space, far and quiet, and connected with rippling peace (although as cataclysmic as a sun, and nebulous as night as well).
I was strolling the city (Richmond, VA) last night, and I visited an outlook of the James River, and I really just brooded upon the strange and touching thought that Robin Williams, like any other accomplished human, is yet another creature looking for a way home, which happened to be lit with stardom, maybe in confusing light, maybe in distracting light. And I thought about the quote of Jim Carrey mentioned in an earlier post in this thread. The answer is a continuous question of love. ahhh, such tragic, and beautiful life...

My girlfriends grandpa had that shit. It's not usually as gnarly as how Michael J. Fox has it, but it definitely takes a serious toll on you. Even the medication they have for it fucks you up.

Robin Williams was the man. I don't know what brought him to do such a thing. I binged watched some of his movies. Hook is amazing. The Birdcage has to be one of the most under appreciated movies ever. There was a scene in World's Greatest Dad where he tells people not to commit suicide, that was eerie to see. RIP Robin Williams. One of the true greats of all time.

I had met Robin about 8 years ago or so. He was filming a movie called The Night Listener in my home town. I had gone down to the set a few times to try and meet him. Finally did one night, just got a hand shake, and a how are ya? that kind of thing.

I went again a few days later, with a girl I liked. She wanted an autograph. (What's the point of autographs? Never understood) We finally waited our turn and he remembered me from the first time. Sure, 2 days who would forget? Maybe a guy who has met hundreds of people a day.. I don't know. He remembered me! That felt fucking huge. He made a comment how I was there 2 days ago with a couple knuckle heads and he liked my Volcom shirt. He said his son loved wearing Volcom stuff. Me and my friend didn't have anything for him to sign so I gave her a dollar of mine for him so sign. He chuckled at that. That damn girl ended up spending that dollar on a cheeseburger at McDonalds. gross

He was pretty softspoken but taking the time out to meet everyone after shooting his scenes, that was cool.

When I first heard about his death it was sad for him and his family and a little bummed, despite not being much of a Robin Williams fan. (although from any perspective he had an impressive body of work)

Then I was kinda pissed off - I mean, you're rich, have a family, live in some beautiful place in Marin county. Plenty would kill to be in those shoes. Fuck you.


Now I just think: yes it's sad, but he chose his exit and I should respect it. The Parkinson's plays a part, for sure. But I also think a person reserves the right to do such a thing and not be judged, which is sort of a western thing. I mean, I can name half a dozen Japanese authors or artists who killed themselves and over there it was just sort of accepted. Great artists kill themselves.

I'm not sure if I subscribe to that idea but I think there was an undercurrent of pain, especially loneliness, that burdened Mr Williams for quite some time and I suppose he is now free of that.

I'm not sure if I subscribe to that idea but I think there was an undercurrent of pain, especially loneliness, that burdened Mr Williams for quite some time and I suppose he is now free of that.
u gotta understand that mental illness doesnt involve thinking rationally. doesnt matter what u have if u hate it for whatever reason.

anyone can be depressed, regardless of their situation in life. depression is stems from chemicals in your brain not dollars in your bank account

he picked my buddy up hitching for hour and a half ride, they did a stop and smoked ROBIN'S fucking weed.   Anyway with the belt around his neck it likely was not suicide people, likely he'd been jerkin it and choking off his air supply during climax.  Alot of times the surviving members when this kind of death happens feel it is 'embarrising" (idiots) and lie about the circumstances(pretty wrong in my mind)   death to smoochey

When I first heard of this news I immediately thought of the podcast he did with Marc Maron back in 2010 where he talks about getting back on the sauce and the conversation he had with himself when he even considered taking his life.

The guy was a legend. RIP

Henry Rollins has always been a talentless hack that thinks way too much of himself. I actually blows my mind that there are people that don't understand suicide. Of all the things in the world that are difficult or near impossible to comprehend, suicide is simply not one of them. Shaming those who come to the conclusion just shows him for the non-thinking inconsiderate fuck he probably is.

I HATE Henry Rollins, I don't even know him but I want to punch his lights out.

Your point on suicide is cowardly, suicide is never the best option.

well i
 read the whole editorial

rolling said this

"...Depression is so personal and so unique to each of us that when youíre in its teeth, you think you invented it. You can understand your own, but thatís it. When you are severely depressed, it can be more isolating than anything else you have ever experienced. In trying to make someone understand, you can only speak in approximation. You are truly on your own...."

so yah.....

read on vice that RW demanded 'homeless labor' at all his shows. that endears him to me more than any of his movies. on a personal level i don't necessarily like most homeless people [although some of my best friends were bums] it is the metric by which i judge people. if a friend gives money to the guy flying a sign on an offramp they're good peoples in my eyes. i try to kick down a cig or something at least [no job] or i'll pay a homeless gentleman to cop for me.
like i said, personally i don't love every homeless person but i spent so much of my life on the streets that i understand how it is and smug people who never kick down are the worst even if some cities are so full of bums you get narcoticized and sick of being spanged.

 i think rollins(former amature roller skater) is just thick headed, or a publicity whore.  Maybye not all "kids" are that great.  Rollins is taking the "high road" with this publicity stunt "who can possibly hate ther kids that much too abandon them?"  He is saying Williams hates his kids (saying this kind of thing is a cheap way to get your  dumb cheap audience on your side)  Nobody hates kids. rite?   - thats fukn cheap.  Alot of children (or adult offspring) suck shit so maybye robin was like "fuck yall, especially you, Peace"  (i still personally think it could be  just the ol' aphiixation-jerk off-belt around the neck-mishap not suicide)                                                                                                                                        On a side note i lived on a reservation (just was living there im not native) where the entire family of a father who commited sucide (wife and children) would all change their last name and their given first name  after such an event - pretty gnar!
