"Do whatever you want" is acting in the self's interest. It's selfish by definition. There's nothing wrong with that.

i know. it was insensitive of her. again this is a very touchy subject and we all have different experiences. especially when it hits home like it has done for her multiple times. if what she says is true, we should just respect it and try to educate her. telling her to **** off and saying she is a dumb b**** wont help either especially when this subject has hit her family.

i know she didn't offended me as much as others here so i wont tell you how you responded her is wrong, i am just trying to understand both sides. this subject should be discussed with an open mind knowing that what you experienced is not a norm.

My words were appropriate when I see my cousin everyday without half a face. Her exact words were PEOPLE don't attempt to kill themselves. Not SOME People don't attempt to kill themselves. My cousin is a perfect example of how wrong her post was. I fixed the situation by using the ignore feature for the 1st time on anyone. Went to sleep and moved on.

I quite enjoyed it as well. It had the ratings and more viewers than a lot of shows but they decided to can it.

I have to wonder if these execs ever feel any sort of remorse when these situations happen.

A buddy of mine did a photo shoot for him and said he was the nicest celebrity he had taken pics for. He treated everyone the same with much respect and took the time to talk and listen to just randoms. He was fascinated with skateboarding and the culture. Always went to FTC in SF and hes even wore FTC gear in some movies/shows/interviews.

Beating the piss out of the Patriots has always been an historic even for the Broncos. The first ever game of the AFL was us beating the Patriots. The Mork game. Then, of course, the historic Sharpe rant. The first home playoff game at then-named Invesco was a win over the Patriots. We're the only team Brady has a losing record against.

So you hang out with or know Earl Sweatshirt? Cause the kid on the right is Earl (in the hat) -- or at least is his doppleganger.

The guy on the left is Atiba. Know him through skateboarding in the Bay Area back in the day. A few skaters in there also. Atiba seems to know everyone.

Makes sense. Earl is big into skateboarding, so it is prolly him.

bummer news. I know that Williams, back in the day, would do random stand up routins in the SF area where he got his start. I dated a woman from SF for a while and she spoke highly of Williams, said he'd just show up at comedy clubs and get up on stage and perform. Very sad news that he is gone.

Yep. He would always shop at FTC and when he came in he would do stand up for everyone who was in there at the time. Just start into a 20 minute routine next to the boards on the wall. I never got to see it but heard he was just awesome.

Rest in peace, Robin. You've given us a chance to talk about this, and to prove that this has nothing to do with life circumstances -- you were rich and accomplished and respected and beloved by friends and family, and in the end it meant jack ****ing ****.

Good read. I'd encourage everyone to have a look.

A dead poet

Well I'm going to have to watch all his films, most memorably

Dead Poet's Society
Good Morning Vietnam
Hook
Awakenings

but the list goes on.

I went drinking with his son Zack in New York a few years back, nice guy. Feeling for him right now.

Goodbye Mr. Williams. And Mork and all the other characters that you
made us either love ( or hate). You were perhaps the craziest and funniest man on earth when you would go off on one of your rants.

A sad day and best wishes for comfort to your family and friends.
You shall be missed.
