Containing Multitudes Since 2004
Now there was a life....
Oh, that's terrible. He was always so awesome.
"We blew it, man" ~ Billy the KidNo you didn't Dennis. Thanks for all the great films, performances, art and memories. You will be missed.
Great photo "memento mori" ... Captures the essence of his repertoire at its apex. I'll always remember him tripping on acid in St. Louis Cemetery No. 1......." Easy Rider" is his Psychedelic Epitaph. Freaks love New Orleans and New Orleans loves Freaks.
Today's drinking game: Every time a broadcast obituary uses "Ballad of Easy Rider" . . .
I'll be drinking the rest of the PBR I've got in the fridge in memory of the man who played Frank Booth in 'Blue Velvet.' http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=snhiofL2Rh4
From www.imdb.com ::'' The memorable third act line from Wyatt, "You know Billy, we blew it" would bedevil critics as they hounded both actors for the meaning of the line for the next forty years. Nevertheless the film was nominated for an Academy Award for the script and neither men ever essentially divulged what that line truly meant . . .''He starred in 2 of 3 James Dean's movies . . . He was in 202 movies . . . He hated actor John Wayne; Purposely, gave him a hard time . . . A very good method~actor . . . He just celebrated his last birthday, 2 weeks ago . . . . . . & divorced his wife, then too ( from complaints about her from his kids !! ) . . . I loved his work in John Dahl's noir-western RED ROCK WEST ('93) and Tony Scott's TRUE ROMANCE ('93) . . . Born in Dodge City, Kansas . . .

Vanwell and son............ BRAVO ! Bravo, Indeed !!!!!! French 75's............ fitting and potent, pious offerings to his memory.

Es ist aber auch sein Gesichtsausdruck,der betroffen macht.Er,der einstige Abenteurer,Künstler u. Poet. Fast wie mit einem Weichzeichner weich,spiegelt sich in seinem Gesicht die Angst und die Gewissheit des Unvermeidlichem.RIP,marietta.
So quiet on this one...
