I cannot fucking stand Dennis Hopper, whom I think absolutely SUCKS as an actor. With that out of the way, I do hope he's OK.

I'm suprised he's lasted this long with all the drugs and alcohol he's consumed. With that out of the way, I do hope he's ok.

Hopefully, this won't mean an end to his career. I'd hate to think that "An American Carol" was The Last Movie he ever made.

Hopper'll be okay. After all, he's got True Grit.

(You all forgot he was in that one, huh?)

There would be quite an Elegy for the Memory of this man. But for now, he's not going to the Land of the Dead, and is keeping us in Suspense, hoping the Unspeakable doesn't happen. Let's hope he doesn't Choke and that his Ticker is OK, but as we know, these things are often the Luck of the Draw, so let's not get Carried Away.

that sentiment gave me a Flashback of this True Romance I once had where I took 1 Giant Leap and then realized I Don't Know Jack about the Mysteries of Love. I took A Hard Look and came to the conclusion that I was merely Sleepwalking through life and that the Hell Ride of Tainted Love she put me through should be a lost Memory Forever. she thought I was just another one of those Knockaround Guys, but I showed her, when me and my Entourage, went to Las Vegas and just by the Luck of the Draw I picked the slot machine that paid out 24 million. I was on Top of the World, leading The Good Life, I was Reborn and finally said Sayonara to that Black Widow and goddammit...I got my Justice!
