The Angriest Man in Brooklyn
(which I just viewed for the first time today)
Oddly enough, that scene in the movie takes place at the 1:11:48 mark of the DVD, according to my computers DVD count, and Williams died on 11/8/14 (or 8/11/14, as Americans would write the date).
All of those numbers, although jumbled around in the timer count, make up all of the numbers in the date Robin would die on.
Spooky, or what?

Ice Bucket Challenge, Corey Griffin, would drown in a freak accident only five days after Williams took his own life.
Co-founder of “ALS Ice Bucket Challenge” drowns at age 27
"Philanthropist Corey Griffin died on Aug. 16 at the age of 27.
Griffin helped co-found the viral “ALS Ice Bucket Challenge,”
which has swept across the world this summer.
The young man began actively raising money to fight amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, after his friend Pete Frates was diagnosed,
the Boston Globe reported.
Griffin drowned off the coast of Nantucket, Massachusetts, in a diving accident.
At 2:00 a.m. he dove from the top of Juice Guys —
a popular diving spot for locals, located on the Straight Wharf.
He apparently surfaced once, but was then pulled under by the waves"
I couldn't help but think of this old Sync Whole logo when I heard about the ice-bucket guy drowning.
The guy drowning on the logo looks like he is drowning in a bucket, too.
Here’s another sync.
Remember how Robin Williams died when a “Family Guy” episode that had the main character turning every one he touched into different versions of Robin Williams movie characters until he decided the only way out of this dilemma was to kill himself?
Well, the main character’s name in that show is Peter Griffin and the ice bucket guy who died was named Corey Griffin.

overweight blue collar worker with a prominent Rhode Island and Eastern Massachusetts accent.
Peter primarily worked as a safety inspector at the Happy-Go-Lucky Toy Factory, until his boss Jonathan Weed choked to death on a dinner roll;
he then became a fisherman on his own boat, known as the "S.S. More Powerful than Superman, Batman, Spider-Man, and
The Incredible Hulk Put Together."

|The Angriest Man in Brooklyn|
animated series Family Guy.
It originally aired on the Fox network in the United States after
Super Bowl XXXIII on January 31, 1999.
The episode is based on series creator Seth MacFarlane's original pitch to Fox, The Life of Larry, and is a remake of the original Family Guy pilot. "
I also found it interesting that Williams was in a TV show called
The Crazy Ones where he plays a character named Simon Roberts and Sarah Michelle Gellar plays his daughter Sydney.
Sarah was in a movie based on a semi-autobiographical
Paulo Coelho book called Veronika Decides to Die.
"The story centers on Veronika, a woman in her mid twenties who appears to have everything: good looks, good job and a great life ahead of her.
Yet she decides to end her own life. She is unsuccessful and awakens in a mental hospital where she learns that she a short time to live.
However in the hospital she meets people who are only 'insane' because they don't always follow society's rules.
With little left to lose, Veronika embarks on a journey on which she frees herself to experience relationships and emotions and ultimately discovers what it means to live."

The funny thing was I didn't go to see, or speak to Paulo.
He just happened to be in the group of authors doing a talk
which included the author I went to see and hear.

The movie The Angriest Man in Brooklyn marks the return of
Phil Alden Robinson in directing a movie, after twelve years of absence.
Phil is probably most famous as director and writer of the Kevin Costner film, Field of Dreams.
Six Degrees of Kevin Costner
Field of Dreams, also plays the part of a man with a speech impediment in a phone shop in The Angriest Man in Brooklyn.
...or at least more like Tarot. ;-)
