As Angela mentioned this morning in GMN, actor/director Dennis Hopper passed away today at his home in Venice, CA at the age of 74, after a year long struggle with cancer. Though best remembered as an iconic figure of the '60s counter-culture (particularly for his role in Easy Rider), his most memorable part—for me anyway—will always be Frank Booth from David Lynch's Blue Velvet Every time I watch this scene, I can't help but say, "HOLY SHIT. That's amazing stuff."
Though Mr. Hopper will be sorely missed, at least I know what I'll be for Halloween this year. God speed, you magnificent bastard.
