    Banner on MSNBC at the moment from Reuters says Dennis Hopper died.

    Around Speed time, I remember talking to a much younger kid about him one day. The kid's reference: "You mean that guy from the Nike commercials?"

    RIP to an Easy Rider.

    He's been sick for awhile. I remember it was reported within the last month or two that he was trying to make sure his current wife didn't get all of his money because he wanted to make sure his kids were all taken care of.

    My favorite scene of all time, in any movie, is Hopper and Walken in True Romance. I have that scene downloaded in my iPod and I probably watch it once a week.

    RIP to a true great.

    RIP to the man who played Frank Booth, one of the greatest/creepiest characters in film history.

    Cliff: Now, wait a minute and listen. I haven't seen Clarence in three years. Yesterday he shows up here with a girl, sayin' he got married. He told me he needed some quick cash for a honeymoon, so he asked if he could borrow five hundred dollars. I wanted to help him out so I wrote out a check. We went to breakfast and that's the last I saw of him. So help me God. They never thought to tell me where they were goin'. And I never thought to ask.

    Coccotti: Sicilians are great liars. The best in the world. I'm a Sicilian. And my old man was the world heavyweight champion of Sicilian liars. And from growin' up with him I learned the pantomime. Now there are seventeen different things a guy can do when he lies to give him away. A guy has seventeen pantomimes. A woman's got twenty, but a guy's got seventeen. And if you know 'em like ya know your own face, they beat lie detectors to hell. What we got here is a little game of show and tell. You don't wanna show me nothin'. But you're tellin' me everything. Now I know you know where they are. So tell me, before I do some damage you won't walk away from.

    Cliff: Could I have one of those Chesterfields now?

    Coccotti: Sure.

    Cliff: Got a match? Oh, don't bother. I got one. So you're a Sicilian, huh?

    Coccotti: Uh-huh.

    Cliff: You know I read a lot. Especially things that have to do with history. I find that shit fascinating. In fact, I don't know if you know this or not, Sicilians were spawned by niggers.

    Coccotti: Come again?

    Cliff: It's a fact. Sicilians have nigger blood pumpin' through their hearts. If you don't believe me, look it up. You see, hundreds and hundreds of years ago the Moors conquered Sicily. And Moors are niggers. Way back then, Sicilians were like the wops in northern Italy. Blond hair, blue eyes. But, once the Moors moved in there, they changed the whole country. They did so much fuckin' with the Sicilian women, they changed the blood-line for ever, from blond hair and blue eyes to black hair and dark skin. I find it absolutely amazing to think that to this day, hundreds of years later, Sicilians still carry that nigger gene. I'm just quotin' history. It's a fact. It's written. Your ancestors were niggers. Your great, great, great, great, great-grandmother was fucked by a nigger, and had a half-nigger kid. That is a fact. Now tell me, am I lyin'?

    "Because he dies, when it dies, man, when it dies, he dies. What are they going to say about him? What, are they going to say, he was a kind man, he was a wise man, he had plans, he had wisdom? Bullshit, man! Am I going to be the one, that's going to set them straight?"

    RIP to one hell of an actor. Memorable in Blue Velvet, Easy Rider, Apocalypse Now, Hoosiers, those NFL commercials where he said "Marbles is a game" . . . .
