Hunter S. Thompson We were somewhere around Barstow on the edge of the desert when the drugs began to take hold. I remember saying something like "I feel a bit lightheaded; maybe you should drive...." And suddenly there was a terrible roar all around us and the sky was full of what looked like huge bats, all swooping and screeching and diving around the car, which was going about a hundred miles an hour with the top down to Las Vegas. And a voice was screaming: "Holy Jesus! What are these goddamn animals?" Then it was quiet again. My attorney had taken his shirt off and was pouring beer on his chest, to facilitate the tanning process. "What the hell are you yelling about?" he muttered, staring up at the sun with his eyes closed and covered with wraparound Spanish sunglasses. "Never mind," I said. "It's your turn to drive." I hit the brakes and aimed the Great Red Shark toward the shoulder of the highway. No point mentioning those bats, I thought. The poor bastard will see them soon enough. from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

  • The Salon Interview Hunter S. Thompson The godfather of gonzo says 9/11 caused a "nationwide nervous breakdown" and let the Bush crowd loot the country and savage American democracy. By John Glassie He calls himself "an elderly dope fiend living out in the wilderness," but Hunter S. Thompson will also be found this week on the New York Times bestseller list with a new memoir, "Kingdom of Fear: Loathsome Secrets of a Star-Crossed Child in the Final Days of the American Century." Listening to his ragged voice, there is some sense that Thompson, now 65, has reined in his outlaw ways, gotten a little softer, perhaps a little more gracious now that he's reached retirement age. "I've found you can deal with the system a lot easier if you use their rules," he says. "I talk to a lot of lawyers."

    Hunter S. Thompson
    "I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me." HST A consummate Fitzgerald fan, Hunter S. Thompson, a.k.a the Great Gonzo, stands as the journalist of the Me decade. Those who consider his prose too whacked-out and self-indulgent to be of any merit should consider the times when he was writing. In an era when Democrats unleashed angry cops on protestors and a majority of citizens voted for Nixon not once but TWICE well, who in that age was thinking clearly? Although I find the laxity with which HST's editors coddle his fundamental inability to meet a deadline somehow annoying, who can deny the man's talent? Fear and Loathing: On the Campaign Trail '72 is so rich with wit and insight that it puts our domesticated journalistic establishment to shame. Fear and Loathing: In Las Vegas is the great travelogue of the 1970s (as The Grapes of Wrath was to the 1930s and On the Road was to the 1950s), a riveting chronicle of the madness inherent to a decadent gambling paradise in the midst of a scorching desert. And the Saga of a Desperate Southern Gentleman , a collection of the young Hunter's letters, is an insightful portrait of the Gonzo as a young man.

    Night Manager
    the Mitchell Brothers Theater In 1970 Thompson ran for Sheriff of Pitkin County, Colorado on the Freak Power ticket. He announced that he would spearhead several reforms:
  • rename Aspen to "Fat City, Colorado"
  • tear up the downtown streets and replace them with bike paths
  • decriminalize drug possession
  • decriminalize the sale of drugs (but only at cost)
  • reintroduce the stocks for drug dealers working at profit As the Republican sheriff he was running against sported a crew cut, Thompson shaved his head bald and referred to the other candidate as his my long-haired opponent . Even so, he lost the election. Scored a one-on-one interview with Richard M. Nixon , on the condition that they would only discuss football. There have been two Hollywood attempts to turn Hunter's writings into movies. The first, Where the Buffalo Roam starring Bill Murray, was an astounding failure. However, it did have one unintended effect: in hanging around with Thompson for a while, it turned Murray into an unrepetant jerk for a good amount of time after production wrapped, affecting his relationship/interaction with the

    Quotes from Hunter S. Thompson:
    The TV Business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs.
    I wouldn't recommend sex, drugs or insanity for everyone, but they've always worked for me.
    There was madness in any direction, at any hour. If not across the Bay, then up the Golden Gate or down 101 to Los Altos or La Honda... You could strike sparks anywhere. There was a fantastic universal sense that whatever we were doing was right, that we were winning....
    And that, I think, was the handle - that sense of inevitable victory over the forces of Old and Evil. Not in any mean or military sense; we didn't need that. Our energy would simply prevail. There was no point in fighting - on our side or theirs. We had all the momentum; we were riding the crest of a high and beautiful wave...

    August 26, 1997
    What would you do? You're sitting in Hunter S. Thompson's kitchen conducting an interview and he wants you to drink. So you drink.
    I'd been directed to read aloud Thompson's farewell to Richard M. Nixon, "He Was a Crook" ( Rolling Stone, June 16, 1994), an obituary fired off in a burst of rage. The author insisted it be read aloud to capture the right effect, and apparently I hadn't been reading with proper and resounding emphasis.
    "No. No! Again. Start over. Clip your words!"
    A glass of Wild Turkey and ice was placed in front of me for elocution purposes, of course and the reading proceeded, this time with the benefit of Thompson's coaching.
    Earlier that day I'd stopped at the Woody Creek Tavern, in Woody Creek, Colorado, to order a drink and steady my nerves before heading up the hill to the house of the Gonzo Journalist and self-proclaimed King of Fun. I'd heard the last reporter who went up the hill looking for a story had to mow the lawn before the man would talk to him. I guess my luck was better. Before the night was over I heard the famous peacocks screaming in the dark. I held the Lono club. A shade before two o'clock in the morning I saw my copy of Thompson's latest book

    MEMO FROM THE NATIONAL AFFAIRS DESK DATE: MAY 1, 1994 FROM: DR. HUNTER S. THOMPSON SUBJECT: THE DEATH OF RICHARD NIXON: NOTES ON THE PASSING OF AN AMERICAN MONSTER.... HE WAS A LIAR AND A QUITTER, AND HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN BURIED AT SEA.... BUT HE WAS, AFTER ALL, THE PRESIDENT. "And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird."
    -Revelation 18:2 R ichard Nixon is gone now, and I am poorer for it. He was the real thing a political monster straight out of Grendel and a very dangerous enemy. He could shake your hand and stab you in the back at the same time. He lied to his friends and betrayed the trust of his family. Not even Gerald Ford, the unhappy ex-president who pardoned Nixon and kept him out of prison, was immune to the evil fallout. Ford, who believes strongly in Heaven and Hell, has told more than one of his celebrity golf partners that "I know I will go to hell, because I pardoned Richard Nixon."

    Hunter S. Thompson - 1937 Lexington By Merideth Mendenhall I. Biography Hunter S. Thompson, creator of Gonzo Journalism, not only is known for his writing, but also for his persona. Who else would have discrepancies about his birth date? All sources agree that he was born on July 18, however some say 1937 and others say 1939, still more cite both. A man born twice? Obviously not, so which is it – only Thompson knows. In When the Going Gets Weird , Peter O. Whitmer reports Thompson's birth in 1937 (27). He continues, that "in 1946[…] Hunter was nine"(32), which also places Thompson's birth in 1937. Yet, William McKeen states that Thompson was born in 1939 in Hunter S. Thompson (2). Still another publication has "1937- " under Thompson's name as part of the heading, and later begins: "born July 18, 1939" ( Contemporary ). There is even an entire web page dedicated to the question of what year Thompson was born ( His career continued to include work as the Caribbean correspondent for Time in 1959 and for the New York Herald Tribune from 1959 until 1960 ( Contemporary ). Then, in 1961 he became the South American correspondent for the

    Interview by Tony Jenkins I am still haunted by the screeching sound of feedback. It was coming from the speakerphone on my computer, and it was coming at the worst possible time. On the other end of the screeching line was famed 'Gonzo' writer, Hunter S. Thompson , and he was not in the mood for faulty equipment.
    he told me,
    I could feel my balls shrinking, my confidence was fleeting. Shortly after the speakerphone mishap, I realized that my tape recorder was still paused, and for some crazed reason I will never understand, I chose to tell Thompson

    The list of questions was quickly discarded, along with my fear. Something about this experience was starting to feel good. I was getting grilled by the guy who influenced me. How fucking cool is that? He sure seemed content on spending this Friday night schooling a youngster in the interview game. He has said that the fun went out of journalism long ago, and when I asked him what new writers can do to put the fun back in it, he questioned me:
    Before I can answer, he burns me again.

Thompson column by year's end, the choice would be easy: Ted Fang's new San Francisco Examiner After all, the legendary journalist had spent the latter half of the 1980s writing weekly political sermons and sex dramas for the then-resurgent afternoon daily, and now Thompson's favorite "conceptual editor" Warren Hinckle, of Ramparts and Scanlan's Monthly fame was being brought on as Fang's "director of hijinx and surprises." When Suck's Tim Cavanaugh asked Hinckle in March whether HST would be one of the Fangxaminer's regular columnists, the eyepatch-wearing editor replied: "Absolutely." But just two weeks before the Hearst Corp.'s historic newspaper swap in Thompson's beloved San Francisco, a familiar bald-headed photo byline could be found throwing a football under the title "Hey Rube!" in a splashy new online publication from ESPN called
