Robin Williams R.I.P.

Recommended Posts

I am saddened to report that Robin Williams died today, apparently at his own hand. He was such a tremendous talent, and I've been watching and enjoying him perform since his television days in the 70's. He was as gifted a dramatic actor as he was a comedian, IMO, and his loss is devastating.

May he rest in peace.

This was very very sad news for me as well. He's always been one of my favorites. I've loved almost every thing he's done (shy of toys and Cadillac Man). I remember standing outside the Local Theatre (3 theaters back then) the line all the way around the back of the building for the Opening of "Popeye". I still have a poster for that.

An amazing actor, and a great loss!

I was a big fan of both his comedies and his dramas. Great actor and man. I will miss him.

Pure comic genius, I cannot imagine what it was like inside his head. He is missed!

This is yet again a reminder of our major work on this site. Robin was not Trans* to my knowledge, in spite of Mrs. Doubtfire, but his death is affecting our community, and yes my personal church community as well since Robin was one of my coreligionists of note. We never really know the weight on another person's mind and heart, and darkness that keeps us from seeing what we mean to others and what we have actually done in life is the worst of all.

Not only did he do Mrs. Doubtfire, but he and Gene Hackman also starred in The Birdcage along with I can't think pf his name. I also enjoyed RV, it was just a silly comedy but still funny as all get out.

RIP Robin and fly with the Angels,my brother

I think my favorite roles of his was as Dr. Sayer in "Awakenings," Dr. Maguire in "Good Will Hunting", and of course, Alladin.

I have the memory of all the laughter and all the tears.

Robin was a great comedian and actor. My wife, son and myself had the honor to meet him one time while he was filming RV in southern Alberta. Having lived in an area for a while that had lots of actors and actresses vacationing I treated him like another human of his statue; with a simple nod of the head. I had also just got off of work and hadn't been given a chance to wash first either.

May he rest in peace now after suffering from depression.

Yes his loss is devastating, it just goes to show you how the mind works, it is very powerful. Thats why we as cross dresser's and transgender, and men and women who want to be different,(can't think of a better way to say it), have to be very careful. I remember when I was an active alcoholic, I would come home drunk and sit in the basement and cry. And ask god why he didn't take me, as I didn't have the courage to do it myself. Slowly as a I started to get sober, I realized my mind and the alcohol were playing tricks on m, so the mind is very powerful. To those who might be contemplating this action, remember there's a lot of help out there, just waiting, and of course Laura's playground is also here to hel. In this fellowship or group, there are a lot of very smart people, who might have been through this. To all, have a great day and love and hugs Sweet Charlene

This was very sad news indeed. May his soul and spirit be at peace. And may his demons be gone.

He gave us so many wonderful things. While I loved all of his work I think his more serious ones were his best. "Dead Poet Society" had a great effect on me.

I posted this on my Facebook, quoting someone else, because he said it so well. And no, I do not know Michael Evans nor is he a public person, just someone else out there who feels this loss.

"I know a lot of people are dismissing another celebrity death; that their life meant nothing to you. For some, Robin was our first true role model. A blue cartoon genie that taught us the difference between right and wrong, and that being yourself was all you needed to be. A father should and would do anything to be with his children, including dressing in drag, or even going back to Neverland to rescue them from pirates. An English teacher can be more than just a giver of grades. A blunt therapist can teach you how to love your wife for a lifetime. A doctor that shows us that laughter is what we all truly need in life.


This has crossed the line as just another celebrity death. This man made us laugh when we thought we couldn't. He made us learn when we thought we knew enough. He has inspired in most to be better than we already were. Peter Pan has now passed, but we can't forget to find our happy thought and hold on to it." --- Michael Evans

      Thanks Vicky,  I know I have a long way to go, just started this a few weeks ago. I am just so damn happy that it came together as well as it did. Far from perfect, but that’s just me. It’s amazing the amount of relief and happiness I’m feeling right now. And the wife seems to approve so that helps. 😁😁😁

      Hi! and Welcome!

      A word of hope and dread, I began my Transition 20 years ago as a CD, which lasted 12 years, and FULL TIME with all the the work 8 years ago, and I am still not finished.  Don't worry about it though, you are living your truth and that is the most important.  A happy, friendly attitude with people will more than offset any little defects we have, but that is the same for all our life. 
    • JustineM
      For the first time I actually put everything together. From the gaff and false boobies 😁 to all the makeup. I’ve got to be honest I saw  my body profile and almost cried. Still need more practice with the makeup but it wasn’t to bad for my first attempt. Also need to grow my hair more or get a wig.

      Gooseberries grow best up north.  In fact, a bush won't grow berries, if it there wasn't at least one hard freeze over the winter time.
    • Ellora
      Ive never heard of Gooseberries, I must try them now.

      Eeeek, Nettle in the nethers! No bueno!   One thing men and women have in common, is they both have need to squat then #2 is involved. 
    • Ellora
      We have heat, and a wide variation. all within a 20min drive. =). In the winter, you can play at the beach, drive 20-30 mins inland and play in the snow =).
    • Ellora
      Eeeek! too hot! AC all the way!

      Ace of Base did a cover of Bananarama's song "Cruel Summer." in 1998. The Original song from Bananarama came out in 1984, which dates me back to 18yrs old when it was in the "Karate Kid." Lots of nostalgia for me .

      That sounds so perfect I bet you could make a lot of nice desserts with all the fresh fruit!
    • tracy_j
      Except for the sun it sounds good over there. Here we live with a wide variation, but I like the heat better than most. I'm loving it here at the moment picking Loganberries directly off the bush as a snack between meals lol. The redcurrents are at their prime too! A short while ago it was Gooseberries and soon be time for doing the same with blackberries. I love to pick things direct rather than buying at the supermarket.   Tracy

      I am not sure it is all post transition. I remember a friend joking at a party we were at that I was typically like a woman and taking so long in the loo. On reading a national newspaper here today I did notice an article about there being loads more bacteria in a mens facillity than a womens - surprise surprise lol. The main thing I miss about going in the wild (apart from beware of nettles etc) is that it is less easy to see approaching embarrasment, being low down in the undergrowth.   My visits to the hairdresser are very similar pricewise. She is not upmarket either is styles or price but I love the local meeting / gossip. I suppose the thing I don't miss is the (often) doctors surgery atmosphere of a barbers rather than chatty hairdressers.   Tracy
