Bye, bye Mr. American pie
Delivered as if from an exploding factory of philosophical fireworks, Robin’s humor was a pie thrown in the face of convention, smeared on the cheeks of contrived reverence, stuffed in the mouth of sycophantish ego. But Robin was larger than comedy; his intellectual versatility would rival Will Hunting, his acting chops could stand proudly alongside the best of his generation, and his artistry as a pure entertainer had no equal.
So today we bid farewell to an era; an era of laughter, of contemplative enlightenment, of natural talent the likes of which will never be seen again. A forty-year guffaw tinged with melancholy that leaves in its wake a vast warehouse of joy and love, with one solitary room reserved for our broken hearts.
