In the past I have shared Sherlock Holmes fan vids, and a couple of Doctor Who. This time it’s Robin Williams.

The above video was created by tumblr user tooru-book, and it’s clips from various television and movies that Robin played in: Mork and Mindy, Seize the Day, Moscow on the Hudson, Flubber, Aladdin, Toys, The World According to Garp, and others.  The song is Florrie’s “Too Young to Remember”

I like watching this one when I want to see something of his, but I know that if I start watching Mork and Mindy, or a movie, it’ll end up being more than just a few minutes, lol

This one is so good, it deserves it’s own post.  I found it shortly after watching series 2 of BBC’s awesome “Sherlock” and, wow! What emotion it brought out!  Read My Mind almost brought me to tears,  Fix You got me really choked up, but this one got me crying.

Sherlock’s line about not having any friends and then later saying that he only has one is from the “Hounds of the Baskerville” episode. It’s partially taken from Doyle’s “The Five Orange Pips” story (from The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes collection). In the beginning of the story, Watson visits Holmes at 221b (having moved out when he got married). They hear ringing the doorbell. Watson speaks:

“Why,” said I, glancing up at my companion, “that was surely the bell. Who could come to-night? Some friend of yours, perhaps?”

“Except yourself I have none,” he answered.

This is my test to see how WordPress has improved embedding videos, especially YouTube videos. I was having one heck of a time (more like 2 or 3 heacks) with the older version and could not get it to work, even reading others fixes and trying different browsers.

The video below is one that one of the members posted to the Charlie Chaplin Forum. The montage is from a number of Chaplin’s films ranging from 1915 to 1940.  And the song is by Moby called Run On.  I think the video is awesome and well timed.

[EDIT 7/22/14 — I was checking out some of my earlier posts and saw the previous embed was no longer working. So I updated it :). Enjoy!]
