Yeah, that place out 'there'. Anything not really Cambodia related should go here.

I know a lot of GMV was adlib and edited later - brilliant. Must have been a scary place, inside his head.

This is one of my fondest memories of him:

"Joke'em if they can't take a fuck. OK."

Just watched this 31 yr old stand up concert in San Francisco(1:22min). His first child was on the way.

Press conference going on right now:

He hanged himself with a belt, and also cut/slit his wrist with a pocket knife.

Robin Williams preliminary cause of death is asphyxiation due to hanging by belt. The cuts were "superficial."

I think they made a mistake in the Press Conference.

Someone asked if there was a suicide note and the spokesperson said, "we aren't aren't going to comment on THE NOTE, I mean a note...."

Some news outlets "TMZ" are reporting "no note."

I still think there was a note, as he seemed to have accidentally said he wasn't going to comment on "THE NOTE" or say if there was or wasn't a note. Hmmm....

Maybe the police didn't even tell the family about Robin Williams suicide note while they investigate.

Apparent;ly he had no $$ problems, Forbes estimated his wealth at $50 mil. After all those movies he could live like a king just from the residuals. He may have been motivated by this: http://www.boston.com/entertainment/cel ... headline_2" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
