I was looking for a good excuse to post this video here even though this is “technically” a “travel blog” [maybe I should have just busted the walls I built for myself…], but then I found a reason to. Today as I was milling around Toul Tom Poung Market, one of the vendors selling DVDs tried to persuade me to buy some of her films. About two seconds into her sales pitch, she pulled out a stack of Robin Williams movies, saying, “You want these!” I laughed and asked if a lot of people have been coming to buy his films and she said yes…she was already out of all the epic ones. I wonder if the pirates will be able to keep up with the demand.
Even here in Phnom Penh the waves from Robin Williams’ death are evident.
