Wow - grew up watching "Mork and Mindy"...
I just read about this on a news site and came over here. From the first time I saw Robin Williams as Mork on Happy Days, I knew he was a special talent. One of my favorite memories of him goes back to a MacWorld Expo in San Francisco years ago (Williams was apparently a Mac fan). I and a group of other people attending the show followed him around from booth to booth for awhile. At each one, he managed to improvise something hilarious about the product being exhibited. It was obvious how quickly his mind was working, as if his mouth couldn't keep up with his thoughts. I'll miss him very much.
Wow, this is sad news indeed...the man was a legend. R.I.P
They say there is a link between genius, creativity, and depression. Sad.
He stopped in the Apple Store I worked at once for a Genius Bar repair and spent a ton of time chatting with the employees and customers. He must have posed for over a hundred photos in the store. His "down-to-earth"-ness and personableness floored everyone.
R.I.P. Robin, you will be missed.
So sad. He seemed like a brave guy having the humility to go through rehab for alcoholism and seeking help for depression before, but as someone battling bipolar disorder I know that all it takes is a few hours alone and dark thoughts you can't control for something like this to happen. He was a big part of a lot of our childhoods -- watching Jumanji and Mrs. Doubtfire over and over on VHS was sure a highlight of mine.
R.I.P. Mr. Williams. You brought serious laughter and was a normal guy. He had one serious funny bone!

Rest in peace, oh captain my captain.
As a fellow comedian, this is truly saddening. It's both amazing and disheartening that the most brilliant minds are often the most troubled. I grew up watching and studying this man, among others, but Mr. Williams was always ahead of the game. His wit and creativity propelled him ahead of everyone else. I will always wonder how someone who made so many friends and countless smiles could feel so sad and alone. My condolences to his family and friends on this most unfortunate and monumental loss.
A huge chunk of comedy was lost that the world will never get back. We will never see a comedic genius like Robin Williams ever again.
From that thought, and in a Apple prospective :
Technically is a short circuit in the brain.
I suffer from anxiety and depression, I know my mind is messed up and I have lost so many opportunities in life.
But 3 years ago I started to face the issue with all I had, therapist, psychiatrist, even every spiritual and religious option.
Today I have ways to go around like in the movie Terminator 2 when he is on the floor and his brain just reconnect itself creating another route.
Well, since February I do not take any kind of pill, not even vitamins, no work outs, nothing. And I am getting every time better. I am taking another degrees in school, I have my stable job, I am saving more than half of my salary and I am going out more. I am more self aware and more present.
But I know people who are not making it.... I have an ex girlfriend who suffers from anorexia and bulimia. I can not talk to her because she is dangerous, she is hanging out with drug dealers, I had to back up.
But the thing with Robin Williams today is that those demons in your head are real. They will take over you. Poor man, he was innocent.
That commercial should be enshrined.
It WAS Robin Williams.
A sad day for us all, but I feel worst for his kids.
By coincidence, I watched one of his movies, RV, the day before yesterday. I hadn't seen it before and he was hilarious while also being sympathetic, something he could do so well.
I couldn't believe it when I saw it on the news this afternoon. So sad.
It was the little things he did well, too, and I like the snickers commercial that was on TV not too long ago. He made everyone laugh.
I typically don't care about actors / famous people who die or whatever, mainly because they're just people & people die. When it comes to Robin Williams, I gotta admit, this one stung a bit.
A sad day for comedy. I will never forget the joy he brought to me every time that I watched him. R.I.P.
Williams had a good number of friends in the entertainment community. I think fellow comedian Billy Crystal, who knew Williams closely for many years, must be stunned by this untimely passing--and I do mean untimely passing.
Both he and Whoopi Goldberg. All three of them hosted at least 5 different editions of Comic Relief, which were comedy shows from which the proceeds went to help the homeless.
Just heard this sad news this morning; a very talented, and accomplished individual, his tragic death at such a relatively young age will rob the world of a genuinely gifted actor and creative artist.
A great comic, he will be missed.
R.I.P. Alan Parrish.
