Hey guys. So I’m getting rid of this tumblr(for a bunch of different reasons) and I’m going to make a new one that’s gonna be much more personal and intimate than this one. If you want to know what my new tumblr will be, send me a message in my ask box and I’ll make sure to follow you once I create my new one that way you know what my new tumblr is. I’m going to get rid of this one sometime by the end of this week, and after that, it’s likely gonna be quite tricky trying to find me again. So I’m just letting you guys all know for anyone who wants the opportunity to still follow each other via my new blog (:

This completely and entirely just melted my whole heart and soul. This is easily one of the most beautiful things I’ve seen in 2014.
Koko the gorilla is a resident at the Gorilla Foundation in Woodside, CA and communicates understands spoken english and uses over 1,000 signs to share her feelings and thoughts on daily life. After the first call about Robin’s passing, Koko came to Dr. Patterson with an inquiring look on her face. Dr. Patterson explained that ‘we have lost a dear friend, Robin Williams. Koko was quiet and looked very thoughtful, Koko signed the words for “woman” and “crying.” Koko became very somber, with her head bowed and her lip quivering; she was crying over the loss of her friend.
"Robin made Koko smile — something she hadn’t done for over six months, ever since her childhood gorilla companion, Michael, passed away. Not only did Robin cheer up Koko, the effect was mutual, and Robin seemed transformed — from a high-energy entertainer, into a mellow, sensitive, empathetic guy, who also happened to be really funny." -Dr. Patterson
Robin Williams recorded his dialogue for the Genie at the same time - and across the street from - the filming of Schindler’s List, one of the most depressing movies of all time.
After he was done every day, Robin would go across the street to cheer up the cast of Schindler and make them laugh with recordings of his improvised material from that day.
I just thought you all might want to know that story.
"What’s wrong with death sir? What are we so mortally afraid of? Why can’t we treat death with a certain amount of humanity and dignity, and decency, and God forbid, maybe even humor. Death is not the enemy, gentlemen. If we’re going to fight a disease, let’s fight one of the most terrible diseases of all, indifference."
