The MTV Video Music Awards are nowhere close to what they used to be. We know this. But every year we continue to watch and wait for at least one hair flipping glimmer of hope, and until then we turn to social media to help cope through it all.
If you experience in particular live Twitter, you must so during an awards show. There’s barely anything in this world better. Except for alcohol after a rough day. And day’s off. Early pay day deposits. Seeing an ex do bad without you. A really good ass cheese platter. And an actual life.
Okay, so there’s a lot still greater but there’s no other way to spend the end of summer than wasting 3 hours to watch one of the most talked about events every year and The
Beyonce’ concert VMAs was once again leaving topics, and tweets, up for discussion.
As the news is fully out there, the world is still rocked by yesterday’s announcement of the death of actor, comedian, screenwriter and producer Robin Williams. Williams for most has been admired and raved for his incredible range of talent in films like Good Will Hunting, Dead Poets Society, Patch Adams, One Hour Photo, and an on and on going list that could NOT be completed without Mrs. Doubtfire. Robin Williams’ work has touched the universe in one way or another for his talent, but most importantly what is most tragic is that he seemed like a genuine, humble, all around nice human being despite the fact that he publicly and privately battled his own personal demons. Celebrity deaths are nothing rare but this, like the death of Paul Walker and Marilyn Burns to name a few, truly hit me in one way or another. For Robin, as one of my favorite actors it was never a piece of work of his I didn’t like or completely get lost in–he had the amazing ability to make us laugh, root for him and even in some works scare us all at a drop of a hat(If you haven’t seen One Hour Photo rent it NOW). And always taught those who looked up to him it was okay to be weird and eccentric and forever think outside of the normal. Thank you, Mr. Williams, may your talents forever live on and may you finally be at peace.
