radioactivemongoose:

i’ve had close friends die and both my parents very nearly die more than once so i definitely fill in with celebrities/actors. robin never filled any spaces for me so i’m sad but i’m not takin it as personally as i’m seeing a lot of you take it. my heart goes out to y’all because i get it though

phil hoffman filled a space for a person, and i’m still not recovered. so, man, if anyone gives you shit for bein broken up about a “person you didn’t even know!!!!” smack em in the ear and say it’s from me
