VarthDaider's Profile Picture
Lived too much when I was young to put it all down here.

If someone is interested I write about it all the time.
I know there has been much said about the death, the life, the debt we owe, etc...
I was in no hurry to add MY two cents, but....
I for one am glad we knew him, and I am still Channeling Robin Williams in The Bathroom!
I mean often when I sit to do what I know we all must do while we visit that room, I think stray thoughts and the things I have seen , heard, experienced; all come back to me.
Robin was a bit that way. I think all he was and all he said and all he did was like a stream of consciousness that had no real beginning or ending...

I thought back to a New Years Eve in the 80`s when I was watching our freshly installed cable and Bam! there was a program coming from New York  [A & E Cable with a program titled "An Evening at The Improv"] that featured him among others. I really had missed most of the Mork And Mindy Episodes as I was working really sh*t hours and was in My 2nd MASTER relationship [he was poor as a MASTER as I have related  or will relate one day; he could consume all your time without really giving much back, but anyway...]

Robin, yes, I am getting to that.
I sat down Cracked a Fosters and lit a Cigar [it was New Years Remember?] and I saw Robin just start the minute he hit the small stage. 22 minutes I think.
I was destroyed.
I was laughing so hard, and well, I hadn't been doing anything to alter my perception.
I just couldn't help it.
I have that whole er---I don´t know what to call it_on an old VHS tape. Routine we would have said of some comedians, but routine doesn't work; yes we'd have said it of another, but it doesn't fit somehow, not with him. It wasn't a canned thing. I doubt he was ever much for 'rehearsal'.
I believe there was this very real ´flow`to his way of fashioning the thoughts going into the comedy, it was as it was some jazz composition of words and thoughts. And it all seemed to make sense as I heard it.

Anyway, I will miss him, but he did what he did and we shall not likely see another that can do what he did.
Fact is, I am not sure a 'NEW' Comedian Could Make it work now.
The time when Mork From Ork was born, the newness of Improv, and well, we hadn't seen anything LIKE Robin before...

Anyway, I sat in the Bathroom and some of him popped into my head and I felt good about sitting there [even though I was having a little less than a good time other wise] thought about one phrase...
"Reality, What A Concept" ......
I know I will be channeling Robin for a long time

Where ever you are Robin

Happy Birthday, Roger!

I don´t think I ever said thanks for this.
I have had a rough two years.
No computer that functioned for about a year.
And problem with health too.
Hope life is getting better, but anyway_
Again, thanks

Yes, you thanked me already (so far as I remember).

But I am glad you are feeling better and I hope you may find yourself back to your old self soon enough.

Hey Roger, any plans to visit the Pacific Northwest on your next visit to you AZ?   
VarthDaider Featured By Owner 2 days ago
Well, I want to be sure I am up to the physical side of such a visit.
Have to make sure I have a little endurance :)
Walking is still not what it was, but I´m coming along [I hope]

I do like the idea.
Before my first hospital visit, I had that in mind.
I wasn´t just talking when I mentioned  that, I think I´d like that very much-
