I've been thinking about double six-shooters and bandoliers... what do you think?Gunplay, Slim. You can't forget the gunplay.
I just re-read HST's Hell's Angels and I'm surprised he made it this far. The guy was an American original who was unfairly marginalized.
Don't forget the stolen Cadillac and make sure you bring a sketchy coked-out lawyer for when you get pulled over. Â Sad to see such an original go.In honor of Hunter S. Thompson, I will be delivering pizzas today, high on acid, wearing a visor, smoking a cigarette out of a long holder, and constantly whacking off when I can't find a victim to rape.
I also thought Joan Didion did a good job of "gonzo journalism," though she stuck to the pen for weapons, and abused her body less.I have a lot of HST stories from my years of living in Puerto Rico. He spent quite a bit of time down there nad pissed off quite a few people. Suffice it to say that, while I think he was a hell of a writer, a lot of his stuff has not aged well. When I was in college, the idea of a booze and drug fueled trip to Vegas sounded pretty cool. Now, forget it.
But, Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail remains a remarkable piece of journalism, one of the best, most brutally honest works of campaign coverage that no one else before or since has had the balls to do.
The closest comparision I can think to Thompson is Menken., but next to HST, Menken was positvely establishment.
