The world lost a great actor today—Michael Parks has passed at age 77. My first experience with Parks was in Kevin Smith’s film, Red State. This episode, although not the perfect way to honor Parks, is our little way of celebrating the life and career Michael Parks gave us.
On the first annual Everything is Awesome Remembers Robin Williams, Kev sits and reflects about Robin Williams the person. So many people have shared stories about his random acts of kindness that people, regardless of fame, tend to not have. Robin Williams brought smiles to the world and we lost a bit of laughter when he left. We’re choosing to celebrate his life versus mourn, because, and I say this without knowing him personally, I think he’d want us to be smiling and laughing more than anything else today. Thank you Robin Williams, not just for entertaining us, but for being a good human being too.
