Tomorrow, in beautiful Taos, New Mexico, another “Dennis Hopper Day” will be celebrated. This one starts with an 11 a.m. bikers rally and “Easy Rider Ride,” and ends with an evening screening at the Old County Courthouse of Hopper’s iconic 1969 indie.
The reason we bring this up – besides the fact that we love anything to do with Hopper – is that on the official website for the annual celebration, there is an absolutely spectacular bio of Hopper, written by the man himself. Now, not all job opportunities for our readers today warrant, or even allow for, such a bold approach. However, for those of you about to try and dazzle a recruiter or managing editor with an unconventional bio, or interested in some atypical LinkedIn lingo, perhaps Hopper’s words can serve as inspiration:
I was born in Dodge City, Kansas, on a farm, in 1936. I followed the light changing on the horizon.
