Farewell Dennis Hopper

leave a comment »

The hippie from Easy Rider. The filmless and philosophic photographer from Apocalypse Now. The gas-huffing psycho from Blue Velvet. The voice in Fire Coming Out of the Monkey’s Head by Gorillaz. Even the demented referee character from an old but great Nike Football campaign.

Those come right off the top of my head and are all memorable pieces of culture courtesy of one Dennis Hopper. I was sad to hear that he lost his battle with cancer. Clearly a man and artist who chose his own path through reality, a film about his life just may make for his greatest gift to us of all.

Much to my wife’s chagrin I’m sure, Apocalypse Now will be making its way into my DVD player later…

I’ll be taking a short break for a few weeks. Just need to focus on some other things. I’ll be back with a vengeance soon…
