If someone were to die at the age of 63 after a lifelong battle with MS or Sickle Cell, we’d all say they were a “fighter” or an “inspiration.” But when someone dies after a lifelong battle with severe mental illness and drug addiction, we say it was a tragedy and tell everyone “don’t be like him, please seek help.” That’s bullshit. Robin Williams sought help his entire life. He saw a psychiatrist. He quit drinking. He went to rehab. He did this for decades. That’s HOW he made it to 63. For some people, 63 is a fucking miracle. I know several people who didn’t make it past 23 and I’d do anything to have 40 more years with them.

One of the more helpful and insightful things I’ve seen about depression/suicide in the last couple of days.

Back in February when I was visiting LA, working on the special features for Popcorn, I stayed with my friend Diane (O’Bannon) for a few days. She showed me a lot of Dan’s personal collection. At the time I hadn’t seen Jodorowsky’s dune even though I knew bits and pieces of the story. Re-watching it now for a second time, I’m even more blown away by the backstory and what transpired because of it. Now even more I want to go back and look through this thing again haha #Jodorowsky #jodorowskysdune #dune #danobannon
