Robin McLaurin Williams

Robin McLaurin Williams.

Robin McLaurin Williams ( July 21, 1951 – August 11, 2014).

Nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actor Three times, Williams received the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his performance in Good Will Hunting (I believe this was the movie for which Matt Damon and Ben Affleck wrote the script for and became over night Hollywood stars). He also received two Emmy Awards, four Golden Globe Awards, two Screen Actors Guild Awards and Five Grammy Awards.

On August 11, 2014, Williams was found unconscious at his residence and was pronounced dead at the scene. According to Marin County, California, coroner’s office, the probable cause of death was asphyxiation.

I have always been a great fan of Robin Williams and have almost watched all his works. Of all his works, I loved his Stand up Comedies and his dialogues in Aladdin as Genie. But one should also know that he was the one who gave us those funny lines like “Size must be dainty but I love you! Gloria! Gloria!” in Happy Feet.

Some of my friends found his eyes very sad. I liked the way he could mock or mimic anybody and everybody on the planet. You should see his mimicry of President Obama, the way he addresses Prince Charles in his presence, the way he would make fun out of anything and everything. His imitations started with him mimicking his grandmother and his childhood was very much lonely. To which he said, I had to play with myself, okay folks, I will get later to playing with myself later days of my puberty. I am his ardent fan. His comedies were always witty and with perfect touch, with hecklers he could come up with instant come backs of jokes and puns. He truly was a legend.

When Paul Walker passed away last year, when the whole world would mourn his death, I didn’t comment against them or liked on any of the pictures shared. I didn’t want to provoke anybody because everybody was then mourning for Paul Walker. I however didn’t seem to care much because I never liked any of the series of Fast and the Furious.

But Robin Williams gave us so many characters that seem to be funny. Today morning I came to office and realized that he had passed. Usually when celebrities pass away, I don’t get affected all. I don’t write RIP him or her, because I personally never knew anybody. But to know his death, gave me a reason to be sad, and I grief his death. He surly gave more to the world, a means to laugh about everything and anything, be it your most miserable days. You can make jokes out of it. 

On Viagra he said once: It is only then (after sex) that you realize, that God has given you one brain and one dick, and only sufficient amount of blood to run one at a time.

On Alcohol he said: I am not alcoholic, I am just ethanol challenged.

On Obama he said: Barack Hussain Obama. Barack means blessing, Hussain don't ask, Obama means Kennedy in Kenyan. And if we mess with his wife, she can go from Yes we can to No you just didn't! 

He was a hardcore gamer and he named two of his children after the game characters. He named his daughter after Princess Zelda from The Legend of Zelda action - adventure game. He named his son Cody from Final Fight.

His life itself was a funny one. His first marriage failed because he gave herpes to a cocktail waitress, for which the cocktail waitress sued him. 

Rest in Peace Sir, I will miss your works above all the people. 

Ps: As a tribute to great entertainer, I watched his stand up comedy: Weapons of Mass Destruction. There he talks about everything, his life, his fight with drugs, Bush Administration, Viagra, his Heart Surgery, Bin Laden, Obama.
