Fear and Loathing This Blog and Gonzo movie

Posted by invizweb on July 22, 2008

I cannot tell a lie. I am a crappy excuse for a writer. And worst still a dogshit example of a blogger. If I was to give a lecture on the material I blog I would bite my tongue until it was a severed giant piece of hamburger meat.

Good gods. Theres no less than half a dozen fucking thumb-sized mosquitoes in this room flying at no slower than half the speed of sun. Nasty bastards. They come to drink my sweet blood and suck out my vitality. Even the AC on full blast cannot protect me. Various Mongol peoples (from the two Mongolia of course) have a theory that mosquitoes are little monster who attack humans out of spite for something we didn’t do at the beginning of the Earth. Screw you douchebags. I wish you go extinct instead of sweet honey bees. The only time bees sting me was on Orientation Day at Stony Brook U, but those were probably either rejects from Brookhaven or mutants form Montauk…

What am I getting at? Until two years ago there was a news writer no less than a dozen trillion times better than myself and no less than ten thousand times more skilled than an average daily reporter (say a Judith Miller, of which the man I am speaking of has no less than one hundred thousand times the integrity of). He did so using humor and pure unabridged rage. That man was Hunter S(tockton) Thompson. Currently making rounds at theaters in major cities is Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson. It is directed by Alex Gibney and narrated by HST’s good friend, Johnny Depp whom he met during the filming of the adaptation to his book, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Jann Wenner, founder of Rolling Stone magazine, former Presidential Candidate George McGovern, former President Jimmy Carter, and his longtime confidant and personal artist Ralph Steadman of the UK also contribute their memories and memorable moments interacting with Hunter. This film covered the entirety of his life, but focused on his work from his ordeal with the Hell’s Angels until his coverage of Watergate. His time in Las Vegas with his lost friend Oscar Zeta Acosta was a huge segment in the film. Not to be a spoiler but there is a point in the film where someone biasly states that HST had no career after the late 70s due to his lifestyle. However, the movie itself proves that HST will have a lasting legacy to generations to come as this film was a very detailed portrait about the life and work of an eccentric individual. it was also fucking fun to watch at many points. If you are a fan of Thompson, you might be a bit nitpicky with its presentation in organization. However, as someone who did not read any of his work until after the film 9though I do of course know who he was), I say “Hell Yeah,” go and see it. Here is the official website.

Today is Robert Anton Wilson Day. Expect a lot of content (they are preset to go off soon). I am going to hang low until then. However, mid-day around 15:45 PM, I will be doing a conference call with TapOut on Versus. Maybe I should get some grapefruit and vodka for that. Fuck it, its July 23rd, I need to make those that came before me proud, and maybe grow myself a pair of grapefruits.

If you cannot tell I am in the middle of things these days, mostly going to a Psych 101 class where the professor talks about Eugenics, calculates 6/12 x 100 = 55 (its 50), and reminds me of the fact that Chris Benoit still brings fear and loathing to my nightmares, on campus with ravenous fireflies, vicious squirrels, and did I forget to mention the mosquitoes? At least I can take some solace that someone is putting up Rupert the AntiChrist posters around town. Maybe Rupert’s entry can shake things up. I never met the crazy son of a bitch but I can trust him more than McBama and O’Cain. Postings will be back to normal around mid August.

In the meanwhile, here is a interview from San Francisco Bay Area Indymedia, in which Hunter thinks 9-11 is an inside job.
