Walk tall, kick ass, learn to speak Arabic, love music and never forget you come from a long line of truth seekers, lovers and warriors."*HUNTER S. THOMPSON*" comes from...?

Duke posts a grand solution on 3/9/2005 1:57:13 PM Well presumably you know of Fear and Loathing in Las vegas #Hunter's Seminal piece. Try Hells angels or Fear and loathing on campaign trail 72. My personal favorite is Screwjack, but that's pretty rare. The library should have most of them try looking under Journalism or Biographies, that's where they're usually kept.

Johanna posts on 3/9/2005 10:38:28 AM I've been reading the rum diary by thompson and i thougt it was great. I would love to read more of his writing, but the rum diary was the only book by him in our liberary. I would therefore like some sugestions on other similar books/authors, with the same feeling, location etc..
George Loftis posts on 2/24/2005 10:45:24 AM Perhaps Hunter decided to shoot himself because he realized his property was one of the few remaining places in Colorado he could smoke . . . maybe he was tired of being "Hunter S. Thompson"; maybe he had received some bad medical news, and given a choice, decided to go out on his terms; or, maybe he could feel the weight of the universe upon him, making him cosmically tired and he knew the big sleep was the only sleep there was. The point is, it doesn't matter why he did it; he did not go gentle into that good night, spending his last days in some kind of "assisted living" establishment. That would have been a tragedy for a man who somehow managed to make a career out of living his life wide-open and writing about it. Let us mark his death by celebrating our lives as he did his. Hunter, we'll miss you.
shock posts on 2/24/2005 12:08:48 AM I read the news today and got a lump in my throat. I missed the newspapers and find the sad news three days after the event. I didn't think it would end tis way and I have to say that it was rather anti-climatic. Not very Gonzo at all. So what Hunter...so you hurt. We all hurt but now you leave questions where there should be a story. How on earth could you not WRITE THE STORY? This is what you were all about...for good or ill. I am sad because you are gone.I will miss you in ways that mine alone. No one ever really knew what it was that shook my earth the first time I picked up FALILV. No one. But you kew the thrillodidn't you.You knew the rush that was mine but what I was familiar as second-hand, you went and stomped the territory. You wrung the neck out of life and then you wrung your own. So squat in the black hut of unrembering and listen to the whales. Farewell HST.
MTZ posts on 2/23/2005 2:44:53 PM his last book is a suicide note and his final message to his people of america was that they f***ed when they voted bush into office and he trys to explain the scare tacticts and propaganda in the media and how they put the fear into america when in fact there wasnt much to fear but it gave bush enough support and popularity to begin what is about to be WW3 and GONZO isnt gonna be around to see his America become a a global warmonger murder machine
