I never went out of my way to watch Robin Williams’ movies, but I enjoyed every one I watched. He always seemed to have a kindness—a realness—to him. I guess that connected with me somewhere over the years. His death has affected me more than I thought it would. He’s been a household name since I’ve been alive. When he died, it almost felt like I lost a distant relative.
"But this is a geek blog—how is this geek-related"?
Like Mila Kunis and Vin Diesel, Robin was one of the celebrities who played World of Warcraft. Players wanted to commemorate his part in the community by adding some reference to him in the game. Blizzard has agreed, and are currently working on it.
I think this is a classy move by Blizzard, and I’m really interested to see what they do. I’m personally hoping for random run-by-fruitings.
