Not at all brewing related, but Robin Williams passed away today of an apparent suicide. So sad. I grew up watching Mork and Mindy and his stand up was incredible, even the non-drug fueled years.

Very sad, indeed. I also grew up watching Mork & Mindy. He also acted in plenty of funny movies. He will be missed.

Just watched his latest film, Angriest Man in Brooklyn http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1294970/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_4. Didn't know it would be his last.

Such a loss.

Very sad to see him go.  No one ever mentions "What Dreams May Come" when they list his films but I've always thought it was about his best dramatic role.  Will definitely miss the work he could have still done.
