Cyber Monday got you down? Not enough unique and uniquely expensive gifts out there for your special someone? Well, look no further, because you may now get the chance to become the proud owner of legendary actor Dennis Hopper’s record collection. Hopper’s daughter, Marin, is a fashion designer who sells her work through Moda Operandi, an online retailer — and she has now added a collection of 110 of her dad’s records for sale, as well. And while that does add up to about $1,300 a record, it should be noted that some of these records have personal notes from the artists to Mr. Hopper in them, and the collection includes some unreleased gems. Additionally, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to nonprofit arts programs in Hopper’s favorite state, New Mexico. So if you or someone you love is looking to get into the most method acting of mindsets this holiday season (we’re looking at you, Jared Leto’s family and friends), tapping into the music preferences of the late Blue Velvet star is a good start.
Dennis Hopper, intense listener.
