    Can't believe that it has really been 10 years. Fear changed my life.

    “Let us toast to animal pleasures, to escapism, to rain on the roof and instant coffee, to unemployment insurance and library cards, to absinthe and good-hearted landlords, to music and warm bodies and contraceptives… and to the “good life”, whatever it is and wherever it happens to be.”

    I recently was reading again from The Proud Highway, it's a huge collection of Thompson's letters spanning his time just after high school though the success of Hell's Angels.

    It's a great read, I highly recommend it to anyone who might have missed it.


    "Buy the Ticket, Take the Ride" is another decent documentary on Hunter.

    Has a complete and unedited version of Hell's Angels: The Strange and Terrible Saga of the Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs been issued?

    Never heard of any plans for such a thing myself, the version I have is a small paperback I bought in the late '90s.

    Yeah I have that one and the original paperback that I read in junior high. I love that book.
    I love almost everything Thompson wrote -some more than others- but the Hells Angels book is my favorite.
    Did you know that Tom Wolfe lifted the whole segment Thompson wrote about the gang-bang of Neal Casady's ex wife in the Hells Angels book for use in Wolfe's book "Electric Kool Aid Acid Test"?
    Just lifted Thompson's notes entirely.

    The film Gonzo touches on that theft about 25 minutes in.
