A Little About Robin Williams And A Lot Of Deeper Discussions About Mental Health

 

The death of Robin Williams rocked us all on Monday night. He was a beloved actor, played some of our favorite characters ever in some of our favorite movies ever, and now he's dead. He's dead, not from natural causes, but from suicide. Williams had long battled the illnesses (that many of us refer to as "demons) addiction and depression, but because he was the funny man, the one that always made us smile and laugh, we assumed that all would be well. Until it wasn't.

I'm not here to preach, I'm not here to surmise or pretend that I know what Mr. Williams was going through in his final moments. I'm here to say that mental illness is something that needs to be addressed in our country. A country where those suffering from mental illnesses are cast off as being "weird", "unstable", "crazy", or "different". We all do it, even if we don't mean to. Mental illness can affect anyone. Even our heroes.

Remembering Robin Williams: The Actor We All Felt We Knew

“Can you believe Popeye is played by the guy who plays Mork?” These words from my mother blew my seven-year-old mind. That's my intro to a piece I don’t know how to write and, honestly, probably shouldn’t be writing so soon after learning about Robin Williams’ death. I only had one encounter with Williams professionally – an interview promoting ‘Happy Feet 2,’ of all things – yet there are tears coming down my face as I type this for what is essentially a stranger. Even though he’s not a stranger. Everyone knew him. This is everyone’s loss.

Your Photos With (Sort Of) Katy Perry [Photos]

Last night Katy Perry brought her Prismatic World Tour to Van Andel Arena here in Downtown Grand Rapids. Thousands of people came out for the sold out show, and we decided that those folks would probably like to have their picture taken with Katy Perry.

As it turns out, it's not so easy to get superstars to come out and just take photos with people for hours before they perform, so we had to improvise. We took (sort of) Katy Perry (a cardboard cutout of her) out to Van Andel Arena so people could have their photo op. Check out the pictures below!
