Conan O’Brien found out about Robin Williams’ death while he was taping that evening’s show, and broke the news to a stunned audience.
It’s so obvious that both Conan and Will Arnett are trying to process the information, like all of us are right now, and that hurts even more. I really appreciate his very simple tribute and thanks. It feels raw and… more meaningful, even though he kind of trips over his words and is not quite sure what to say. And I think that pretty much sums it up- how speechless we are about the whole thing.
turning myself in today
so long, tumblr
for who knows how long
Drunk text me. Text me when the music is loud and there are girls dancing around you and you’re not quite coherent and you’re not quite yourself. Drunk text me that you love me or that you miss me or that I’m on your mind. Let the alcohol tell me all the things you won’t say sober.
"Now let me dispel a few rumours so they don’t fester into facts. Yes, I too attended at ‘Hell-ton’ and survived. And no, at that time I was not the mental giant you see before you. I was the intellectual equivalent of a 98 pound weakling. I would go to the beach and people would kick copies of Byron in my face."
when i was in year 5, i did a speech on clumsiness for my school’s public speaking contest and to be clever, i tripped on my way to the stage dropping my note cards all over the place, but then i pulled the real ones out of my pocket saying ‘if you’re going to be clumsy, it pays to be prepared!’
everyone lost their shit and i got second place
If you got second place who got first… Did they talk about fire safety and burn the stage down or something
