Nano Nano No More

williams_by_murray I was at the computer answering e-mail last night when my sister called with the news that Robin Williams had died.

I was very saddened by that news, but not surprised; my peers have been dropping like flies lately and the loss of another is not much of a shock anymore (just another feature of being a sexagenarian).

According to my count, Robin Williams appeared in four films that included transgender bits: Mrs. Doubtfire, The Birdcage, The World According to Garp and To Wong Foo Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar, but in my opinion, his best film performance was in Good Will Hunting.

My favorite Robin Williams moments were when he riffed with Whoopi Goldberg and Billy Crystal in Comic Relief. They were a great team. Whoopee and Billy must be taking the loss of their teammate very hard.

I will miss him a lot, too.


  1. I agree, he was one of the greats! I'll miss him too

  2. I don't know who you would even compare him to as a big loss? jim carrey? steve martin maybe? He's just been in so many films, cartoons, specials, he's a legend.

  3. Grew up with him as well Stana. He was far too young but it does put the focus back on helping those who are going through mental wellness issues.

    Was it not nanu nanu??

    1. I have seen it spelled both ways, so I flipped a coin.
