#DENNIS HOPPER STILL KICKING
LOS ANGELES, Ca., May 17
, True Romance
, Blue Velvet
…hey man, let me count the ways this man has blown our minds on the big screen.Lyzako
, Tokugawa Marinski
, Marty Sherman
, and I are standing around a table with a handful of hot LadyBombs
lighting candles on a cake for Dennis Hopper
The fucker turns 70 today.
If Hopper - a great actor, dope addict, and alcoholic – can make it to 70 as the reckless crazy person he’s been for so many years, then there’s hope for all of us, brothers and sisters.
When asked how he would spend this momentous night, Hopper, now clean and sober, answered, “The wife and I will have a nice early dinner – maybe steamed fish for me, I don’t know yet – and then like the rest of America come home and watch American Idol
. I love that fat kid, Ruben Stubber
. I hope he wins.”
Reminded that Ruben Studdard
was an Idol of two years past, the actor replied, “I told you - probably the steamed fish – I’m not sure yet.”
And so we blow out the candles and raise our glasses to Dennis Hopper and make the toast he made in Blue Velvet:
“Here’s to fuck!”
Happy Birthday, fucker. ... (MUSTY SCRIBBLINS)
