Turns out I do get Fxx. Too bad the every Simpsons ever marathon is already at 2001. But then again…this. #yvanehtnioj

I took my little brother (who falls on the autism spectrum) to see Guardians of the Galaxy and after this scene he lit up like a Christmas tree and screamed “He’s like me! He can’t do metaphors!” And for the rest of the film my brother stared at Drax in a state of rapture. 

So for the last 6 days I have heard my brother repeatedly quote all of the Drax lines from the movie verbatim (one of his talents), begin studying vocabulary test words, and tell everyone he knows that people with autism can also be superheroes.

Now I am not saying that Drax the Destroyer is, or was ever, intended to be autistic. All I am saying is that it warmed my heart to see my brother have an opportunity to identify himself with a character known for his strength, badassness, and honor. And that is pretty damn awesome. 

So while I adored Guardians of the Galaxy as a great fun loving film with cool characters I can do nothing but thank Marvel Studios and Dave Bautista for finally bringing a superhero to the screen that my little brother can relate to.

I’ve been putting this off for a few days. It seems everyone has posted some missive on how Robin Williams touched their lives, so why bother throwing my word into the fold? Normally, my writer who doesn’t write brain would’ve taken over and I’d have moved on to not writing something else. Or I would’ve written something and never posted it.
Not this time. 
Even without the litany of inspirational quotes and memoriams that have blanketed social media, I’ve found myself really affected by this loss, thinking about it constantly while my normally scattered brain tries to get me to do other things. So here it is, this is what Robin Williams meant to me.
Like most my people age (or maybe just most people), I grew up on Robin Williams’ work. Mrs. Doubtfire, Jumanji, Hook and Aladdin were staples of my childhood. And I hope they still show Dead Poet’s Society in high schools because it’s probably the only in-class movie I ever took anything away from. I could quote his movies here, but the internet has done that in spades.
Instead, I want to share two stories.
The first of which isn’t so much a story but something I learned not from Robin’s films but his life. I’m a nerdy guy. I realize it’s cliche and somewhat trendy to claim that these days but it’s true. Growing up (especially in my teens and early 20s), it was something I was embarrassed about. I kept my collectibles hidden in boxes and I kept my gamer speak low key. Somewhere in that time, I learned that Robin Williams was an avid gamer and a vinyl toy collector. I don’t remember when it was exactly that I found this out (around 19-22 maybe?), but I remember feeling like having those interests was ok when I did. It took much longer for me to truly embrace that side of myself, but Robin gave me the first step. Just knowing that an another adult, one that I admired, had the same interests made me feel better about who I was.
The second story refers to the photo above. I posted this on social media when he passed two days ago. I knew I had it, dug it up, slapped a filter on it, and added my internet memorial to the fold. It got likes, comments, retweets, the virtual internet hugs we all used to comfort each other.
The version above is the original shot. No filters. No fancy tilt shift focus.
I point this out because favorite part of that moment is in the picture and I’ve never noticed it until just now.
This was taken at the Meltdown Show in Los Angeles, which I have had the pleasure of being at nearly every Wednesday for the last 2 1/2 years. I’ve seen many great comics come through there, but this was the only time I’ve been truly starstruck. Honestly, his set was a blur. I remember laughing, for sure. I mostly remember thinking, “Holy shit, Robin Williams is 10 feet away from me.”
That show was exactly a year ago from tomorrow, August 14, 2013 and here’s the part I remember most…
One of the Meltdown’s hosts, Jonah Ray, came out after introducing him, crouched down against the wall, and watched his set with a smile from ear to ear. I’ve always wished I took a picture of that as well, because it stands out in my memory whenever I recall this moment. And it was just now, when I attached the photo to this post, that I noticed that you can see him there, grinning between the heads of two audience members.
Maybe that doesn’t seem important to those of you reading this. Comedians can be a cynical and jaded bunch, and Jonah can play into the jaded hipster box that people tend to paint him in (to hilarious effect), but seeing him sit out there with the crowd to watch a legend and just laugh and smile and partake in unadulterated joy with the rest of the audience somehow added to the experience. (BTW, he also wrote a great bit on Robin Williams here, which after reading I finally decided to write this).
It’s something that stuck with me and I hope to keep with me when I make it into the entertainment industry. Don’t let jaded bullshit cynicism stop you from liking something. Never stop being a fan. Never stop enjoying the things you love. These things bring you happiness and the world needs all the happiness it can get.
It’s tragic and terrible how we lost Robin Williams, and I could go an eternity without having to see another “so sad” comment attached to a screen grab of his films. But despite struggling to find it for himself, the man brought us all great joy, whether it was as a cartoon genie or watching him make another comedian laugh.
He will truly be missed.

Legit upset that my favorite mug fell of the counter right now. Does his mean Donald Glover isn’t coming back to Community?
