I thought I could elaborate on my thoughts after what happened a few days ago, since I was feeling rather shocked and sad. I'm sure a lot of people have heard of the sad news and many have said that they couldn't look at certain movies or interviews the same again, and I can completely understand that. Some don't wish to watch any of his work ever again because of the awful news. Yeah, it took me a while to finally gather up the courage to watch one of his improvs again. So, I clicked on his interview from Inside the Actor's Studio, and seeing him made my heart ache a bit, but the moment he started talking, I couldn't stopped laughing. Seriously, here I am, working on the next page of Midnight Game, and I'm laughing so hard because of his genius wit.

And I've come to realize it. I may not know him personally, but from what I've seen, he would want to remembered by laughing at his antics and jokes. And going back to watching this interview made me think that I shouldn't be grieving for his death, but reliving what he left behind and the millions of laughs he's entertained.

My other favorite moment was when he did a stand up for our troops, but in the middle of his routine, we have something called Evening Colors, where our Flag is lowered down at sunset. Everyone who was there turned around, facing away Robin and saluting the flag. And Robin was kind enough to stay silent in that moment and waited. And when the sound of "Carry On" is played, everyone turns back and sits down, waiting for him to continue. Robin then asks, "What was that?" One of the soldiers replys, "It's lowering the flag." To which Robin responded with his quick improv wit:

"Oh, okay. Because that's a scary thing to have everyone turn around during your act, going, 'Forget you! You've annoyed us!'"

I'll keep on laughing and remembering what he left for us. Thanks for making my childhood, Robin. I look forward to seeing your last performance in Night at the Museum.

It seems he's been coming on more and more on Weird Al radio when I listen to Pandora. RIP, Robin.

I listened to his songs from "Aladdin" the past few nights. "Friend like Me" and "Prince Ali". They are still very good songs. And I'm planning to watch "Night at the Museum" again. :) Robin Williams was one of my favorite childhood actors and heroes that made my whole life complete. :)

What about "Nothing In The World Quite Like A Friend", "There's A Party Here In Agrabah", & "Father & Son"? :)

Oh, I'll listen to those too. Genie was one of my favorite characters played by him. :)

I remember you saying (if I recall correctly) you recently turned 21 and was curious if you've been a Disney fanatic for possibly as long as I have.
