So what exactly is it that I’m going on about? Just the happy non-news that Mr. Hopper checked out of the hospital today after going in earlier in the week with apparent flu-like symptoms and a stomach ailment. Just reading this week that he went to the hospital was enough to give me an “oh fuck” moment after the business the celeb caretakers have been doing this year. While he may be immortal on screen, he’s still a 73-year-old. Spry 73-year-old, but septuagenarian nonetheless. Mr. Hopper was in town to promote Season 2 of Crash, but has since had to cancel his planned appearances on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon and The Today Show. Fine by me. Just as long as he doesn’t check out of his skin anytime soon. While his symptoms may have ended up being minor, I’m just getting a shout out to Death not to be getting any bright ideas. You can’t have Dennis Hopper.
