Dennis Hopper was 74: sweet glimpses

“I mean, what are they going to say, man, when he’s gone? Huh? ‘Cos he dies, when it dies, man… when it dies, he dies, what are they going to say about him? What, are they gonna say he was a kind man, he was a wise man, he had plans, he had wisdom, bullshit man, am I gonna be the one that’s gonna set him straight, look at me! Wrong! You.”




Someday this world’s gonna end.

    I saw the ghost of Dennis Hopper this morning driving south on the Turquoise Trail in a bronze pick up. He had on a cowboy hat and aviators. He raised two fingers in greeting and smiled. He was headed for the border I’ll bet.
    His funeral is today in Taos.

“I really want to see The Irishman. I’ve heard it’s big brother Martin Scorsese’s masterpiece. But I really can’t find the time. The promotion schedule is so tight, there’s no opportunity to see a three and a half-hour movie. But I really want to see it. In 2017, right before Okja’s New York premiere, I had the chance to go to Scorsese’s office, which is in the DGA building. There’s a lovely screening room there, too, with film prints that he’s collected. I talked to him for about an hour. There’s no movie he hasn’t seen, even Korean films. We talked about what he’s seen and his past work. It was a glorious day. I’ve loved his work since I was in college. Who doesn’t? Anyone involved with movies must feel the same way.”

“But okay, I promise you now that if I ever retire again, I’m going to ensure that I can’t walk it back. I’ll post a series of the most disgusting, offensive, outrageous statements you can ever imagine. That way it will be impossible for me to ever be employed again. No one is going to take my calls. No one is going to want to be seen with me. Oh, it will be scorched earth. I will have torched everything. I’m going to flame out in the most legendary fashion.”
