Dennis Hopper, 1936-2010

Actor, director, photographer, painter, art collector, on-again/off-again Republican, on-again/off-again Democrat, lunatic, drug addict, alcoholic, Midwesterner, Kansan, and human Dennis Hopper died on Saturday. He was in a lot of movies that were formative experiences for me, movies I watched a lot more than once, movies that are tied to powerful memories of my friends, family, childhood, adolescence, and blah blah blah. He was also in a lot of total shit, but that's what happens when you're an actor who stays busy.
