This is the same guy who famously hit Norman Mailer in the head with a hammer and got Dennis Hopper to pull a knife on him (and then sued him twice for it).I want to see the Rip Torn biopic
I like that his name is a verb, and then a synonym of the verb in the past tense. Also, that Sissy Spacek is his cousin. But mostly, for Artie. Acid and awesome.
Apparently he WAS hosting an intergalactic kegger.
Thanks for the shout out to Dodgeball. :)
What's Rip Taylor up to these days?
I'm going to guess that whatever it is, it involves confetti.
this took place right in our town. down at the pub the other evening, rip's behavior was all anyone was talking about. apparently, this behavior is not at all unusual, though certainly sad, for rip. everyone had a story about of being at one of the two bars in town and having rip drink through an evening and insist on them staying until after their spouses would have preferred them be home. the story is certainly amusing, but underneath there appears to be serious alcoholism that's gone untreated for years, decades even.
Hasn't everyone wanted to hit Norman Mailer with a hammer?
