When the going gets weird... the weird turn pro.

H.S.T 1937 - 2006

Four years ago, the world lost an innovative, fierce, life altering journalist. Hunter S. Thompson, the father of Gonzo Journalism, who ended his life on February 20th, 2005 was in the business of being himself; which sometimes came at a high cost. A suicide note addressed to his wife, Anita Thompson, pointedly touched on not only his last hour of his existence, but his dedication to avoid, at all costs, any semblance of normalcy in his life.

Football Season is Over...

"No More Games. No More Bombs. No More Walking. No More Fun. No More Swimming. 67. That is 17 years past 50. 17 more than I needed or wanted. Boring. I am always bitchy. No Fun -- for anybody. 67. You are getting Greedy. Act your old age. Relax -- This won't hurt."

Thank you Hunter - I am sure you are causing chaos in an vicously overcrowded version of Pheonix.
