It really has nothing to do with garage or estate sales, but Robin Williams had such an impact on my childhood, I couldn't let him pass without some kind of mention.
One thing that bothered Robin Williams was despite his many critically acclaimed roles, people's minds always returned to his role as Mork:
"People say you're an Academy Award winner," he said. "The Academy Award lasted about a week and then one week later, people went, 'Hey Mork!'"I think the fact that people always remembered him for that was a statement of the impact of that character and Robin's take on him and a reflection of how beloved he was. It's too bad Robin Williams didn't see it that way and accept what an honor it truly was.
Rest in Peace, Robin, we'll miss you. I hope your demons have finally been driven out.
