Nom nom nom nom

First Ronnie James, then Gary...

And now Dennis Hopper has passed on.  I guess it always comes in threes, but I've got to say, that's an odd, odd set.

So long, Dennis; we hardly knew ye.

From the article:

Dennis Hopper - actor, filmmaker, photographer, art collector, world-class burnout, first-rate survivor — never blew it. Unlike the villains and freaks he has played over the decades — the psycho with the mommy complex in “Blue Velvet,” the mad bomber with the grudge in “Speed” — he has made it through the good, the bad and some spectacularly terrible times. He rode out the golden age of Hollywood by roaring into a new movie era with “Easy Rider.” He hung out with James Dean, played Elizabeth Taylor’s son, acted for Quentin Tarantino. He has been rich and infamous, lost and found, the next big thing, the last man standing.
