REST IN PEACE EASY RIDER 1936-2010

We will all miss this legendary Hollywood Icon. I will remember Dennis Hopper best for his direction and roles in Easy Rider, Apocalypse Now, and Blue Velvet. He was such an inspiring artist in Hollywood, I feel mostly because he was himself no matter what. He was human and wasn't afraid to do what he wanted- a true rebel baddass. Although Hopper once said that his base of work could have been larger if he had done things differently Viggo Mortenson said it best, what sets Hopper apart is "his ability to instill … fearlessness … as an artist and friend." Too bad more people in the film industry weren't more like him- instead of all this sellout bullshit we get these days. PAPST BLUE RIBBON FOREVER!!!
