Who is Robin Williams you say?!?! Where have you been? Only the most psychotically sane, intensly relaxed, seriously comedic performer on this planet. And only the sickest people in this world can appreciate that. Yes. I admit it. I'm a sick man.

 Robin....if you are out there, you are my inspiration! There are few people on this planet that can make me laugh like you have. This is my dedication to you. Not only as a performer, but as a person. There aren't many that can make it in Hollywood and still be HUMAN (Being Human....hmm....am I plugging Robin's movies now?!?!) and this man has done it. Just watching all of the great movies of impromptu comedy and yet, still able to do serious roles as well is hard to find from one person. Then again, schizophrenia enters my mind seeing Robin in the many different roles that he has played over his career. I don't think I would ever be able to perform such feats without requiring serious therapy myself! Although at times, I have been known to.....well....that is another story......for another page.......heh heh :-)

 Anyone who has seen Robin in action whether doing interviews or going off on a comedic rampage, (actually....is there a difference?) I'm always looking forward to his next project. I know I couldn't exist without having a sense of humor so I appreciate the fact that no matter what is driving me up the walls, I can count on the comedy of Robin to bring me out of a crappy day. I thank God the day that I first sat down and laughed all the way through Popeye. OK, not all the way but still....I enjoyed it!

What else can I say? I just want to bring "Robinism" into your life if you haven't heard of this man. If you haven't heard of him, go check out some of his movies. I can't think of a single soul that has so many different faces in the realm of acting. If you have, I hope that he has kept a smile on your face for as many years as Robin has for me. Keep em laughing Robin. You've always busted a gut with me :-) 


THE AFTERMATH OF A HUMOROUS INTRODUCTION

I would like to make an open apology to a user (you know who you are) who just brought to my attention the inadequacies of my Robin Introduction above. Apparently my friends, I have insulted Robin's intelligence without my knowledge (that is a pun in itself...heh heh). Because of my emphasis on Robin's humor and the fact that I used the word "psychotic" in my introduction, I have insulted Robin Williams according to this web visitor from beyond. But, apparently, some people are lacking this really intriguing quality that I tend to portray......could it be.......oh......what is it called.......ah yes!! A SENSE OF HUMOR!

If I meant every word of that introduction about Robin Williams and you're taking ME seriously, there are some severe problems that need to be addressed. How many people have actually read my intro and took this line seriously?

"Only the most psychotically sane, intensly relaxed, seriously comedic performer on this planet."

Come on! You mean to tell me that I'm offending Robin by using psychotic?!?! That whole statement is out there in itself (you know....amusing....funny ha ha....etc) We're all a few baskets short of a picnic my friends!!! Aren't we? Or maybe it's JUST ME! 8^0 My point is....none of us ever play with a full deck. We're just given really band hands to play with in our lives! (don't analyze that....PLEASE...heh heh)

So....to make a long apology short....(too late), I'M SORRY ROBIN! I'm sorry for calling you psychotic! And not pointing out that you are an excellent dramatic actor as well. (which you are). I thank this ONE user from beyond the valley of the web for taking time out to criticize me for mis-interpreting his interpretation of what I tried to make a simple tribute page to someone I found funny. And I'll be looking forward to this user's future as the next web site critic. God knows we don't have enough critics (which I define as "people who have no creative abilities to make it on their own due to lack of talent") I think Webster should add my definition of "critic"...what do you think? ;-)

Never Sincere Enough.....Rob Bartsch


The latest addition I have for you is another rather humorous email that I thought I'd add here since I don't really consider this a "hate monger" kinda email. But it was damn funny none the less. It's yet another criticism of my TRYING to be something that I'm not. I won't elaborate on this though. Just read it...I got a big kick out of it...

And here is the email from...ohhh...let's just call this little fellow "MEDIOCRE BOY"...LOL


THE MISADVENTURES OF MEDIOCRE BOY'S ATTEMPT AT BEING..WELL...MEDIOCRE I GUESS..;-)

AND "MEDIOCRE BOY" TYPES HIS FIRST EMAIL TO YOURS TRULY:

"you are trying to hard to be unique and seeing sombody who really is unique like robin williams makes you want to believe that you can relate to him but you are just another typical average kid with hopes of being different.. your little commentary on who he is and who you are is a joke"

AND THEN..."MEDIOCRE BOY" CORRECTS HIMSELF MINUTES AFTER THIS FIRST EMAIL WITH:

"i made a typo by typing "to" instead of "too" but i am in a hurry.. for sombody like you to think that you are sick or that you can appreciate robin more than other average people is far from the truth.. you arent sick and you cant appreciate robin more than your average person which is you.. you like every other average teen will have to wake up and realize that you too are mediocre"

AND MY EMAIL RESPONSE TO HIM?

Nahhhh....I really don't have anything to say to this lil dud(e) so I didn't bother emailing back. Obviously, he is speaking his mind which he is entitled to. Besides. I'm just like every other average teen as he says. I have to admit that it's a little awkward for me being 27 years old now but HEY....I'm glad to see that my immaturity still shines brightly in this world by connecting with mediocre people like "mediocre boy" all over the world!

So...here is a toast to all you mediocre people like myself out there. Stand tall! Be proud! Be normal! YEAH RIGHT!!! LMAO

HAVE A GREAT NEW YEAR GUYS AND GALS!!! Mr. Mediocrity himself....Rob Bartsch

Although the name I chose might have been fitting huh? Hahaha

Congrats to Robin Williams and his FIRST OSCAR!

For those who were living in a cave and missed the 70th Annual Academy Awards, Robin Williams received his first oscar for Best Supporting Actor in the movie Good Will Hunting. For those who haven't seen this movie, it is a MUST! Robin truly deserved this award and I hope to see him win many more! I must say though, it is really sad that to be awarded by the Academy, you have to play a DRAMATIC role. You don't see many comedic actors (if any) get an Academy Award for being in a comedy until Robin finally got his dues (and he played a very dramatic role).....go figure huh? Oh WELL! CONGRATULATIONS ROBIN! You deserve it man!

Sincerely NOT Robin Williams....but rather Rob Bartsch....:)


Robin Williams Hate Monger Section (Updated 5/9/98)

I was reading through an old section of mine that I put up when I received my first hate mail. It not only bashed Robin, but myself for appreciating his humor. It brought back some funny memories though so I thought I'd include it with my Robin Page. It involved a hate mail letter and a response from me with a link to email this hate monger. So....without further adieu, here is the Robin Williams Hate Monger Section.


NEWS FLASH-I AM NOT ROBIN WILLIAMS

I'd like to make a quick statement for those who can't read (which makes this whole statement irrelevant doesn't it)? Many have wanted to know what movies I am currently working on and what is coming out. Well.....my name is Rob, but I AM NOT ROBIN WILLIAMS. Yes....I have a tendency to be a tad crazy at times. Yes....I do go off on my little comic rampages myself. However, I'm currently not starring in any motion pictures at this time (that I am aware of anyways....;-) But, you'll be the first to know in my links of what Robin is up to movie-wise when I find out.

 In a nut shell, (bad choice of words huh?) I'd like to think of myself as an "imaginary friend" (or one of them....ha....kidding Robin) of Robin's rather than a fan. Fan sounds like such a strong word to me. Especially after seeing that movie "The Fan" with Robert De Niro......whoa! Especially at the end of the movie when Robert.....heh heh....don't you hate it when people do that?!?!

 What was I typing? Oh yeah. I'M NOT ROBIN WILLIAMS. Got it?!?! I hope so....because I lost myself half way through typing this whole statement. Ahhh....just read the CAPITALS. That is at least clear....:-)

 Rob Bartsch..........AND......I almost forgot to plug Robin.....whoa.....I mean......give Robin a plug......nope, don't like the sound of that either.....I didn't mean that.......oh heck.....read the caption below. Advertise! That is what I meant. Plug seems like such a strong word doesn't it?!? Especially in the context I used it in......sheesh....I apologize Robin. I'm getting as bad as you! :-) 


OH MY! AN AWARD?!?!

Well! Thank you so much my fellow Robin Williams followers. It seems that you have gotten my web site an AWARD! That's RIGHT! At least 100 of my visitors went over to the Star Pages Web Site and voted for my site and go me my very first web site award! Thanks so much guys! You made my day. I may have to get some more pics going on as you have suggested would make this site better. But for those of you that have browsed around to my other pages, you'll see that I've created quite a monstrocity of a site to maintain with my own music and everything else.
