Robin Williams on Carson w/ Jonathan Winters 1991

Almost 30 years ago and still topically and culturally relevant in the US. Also notable given Williams' issues with substance abuse and depression. (One of my favorite films.)


Awesome! I'd never seen the entire thing, only small clips. Thanks!!!

The following year in May, Williams was one of his final guests. It was definitely time to retire, but I didn't guess then that late night TV was dead but not buried.

It's just him talking, but if you're eating or might otherwise have issues with graphic descriptions, you've been warned. Spoiler alert... he mentions unions and OSHA.

Tried to watch some of it but didn't get very far. I can't decide if that's really mental illness or if he's literally channeling the internet in real time.

:lol: :lol: :lol:

Astute point!

Sadly, he was schizophrenic. When he had his schizophrenic snap, he was working for Ticketmaster as some type of programmer... he had a masters degree in electronic engineering. He "noticed" people in suits following him around, so he got in his car and drove to Texas, because that's what the radio told him to do. When he go to Texas, he drove into the desert, then ripped his car apart looking for the tracking devices the CIA put in his car. Then God told him to walk to the desert... so he threw his keys away and started walking.

He was picked up by a cop, and he jumped out of the moving cruiser when the cop was bringing him in, breaking his collar bone. He was institutionalized for a while, and then moved back with his parents... as a fully schizophrenic individual. From that point, God told him to make an OS as the third temple. So he wrote everything to build a ring 0, 640x480 16 color 64 bit operating system designed to talk to God, in his very own version of C, HolyC.

HolyC, that's great.

I downloaded a copy. I ever learn C well enough, I may take a look at it, just to see.

Fundamentally, it's like a Commodore 64, but everything is in HolyC instead of BASIC, and HolyC was written by a schizophrenic. So you have can 3d sprites in your source code (Terry brags about that, while normal people just ask "Why would you even want to do that?").

I've mirrored the most current version, and am currently mirroring everything from his archives onto a backup hdd.

"Why would you even want to do that?" seems like the slightly less ugly and unbalanced cousin of "Because that's the way we've always done it."

Why do that? Because it's there / you can. I'm not saying anyone should use it for production. Then again, lots of stuff is in production which shouldn't be, and it's considered "the way to do it."

Agreed. Unconventional approaches can lead to some amazing breakthroughs. I have a real soft spot for Terry, as I'm sure he was a genius, but just was too broken to work with "normals".

I'm not going to click that, but in season 1, they encounter the chicken version in an Asian restaurant (I forget which country)...

Well deserved. I'd immediately trade Pelosi, Ginsburg, & the lesbians (Sotomayor, & Kagan) for that Pagani.
