Fear and loathing in Las Vegas was definetly my favorite.
Jonny Depp did a terrific job as Gonzo....

Fear and Loathing was the bomb diggity. Not only was Johnny Depp good, but so was Benico Del Toro...not to mention that Terry Gilliam (Monty Python) directed it. Awesome flick....

Hunter S Thompson is credited for creating gonzo journalism. I studied some of his works in college. I was also an avid reader of his pieces on ESPN's Page 2.

I never had the pleasure of meeting Hunter even though he was from Louisville, but I did have some teachers that worked with him or knew him and they said that have said that he could be rather hard to wrok with at times.

I haven't followed up with any new findings do you have a link to what you are talking about?

no link.....the news reported that he removed his head with at shotgun blast.....his body then found by his son.

Um from seeing people blowing thier head off live on the news a couple of times over the years....it appears prety messy.


The actor Brian Keith did the same years ago...again found by family member. Then thiers Curt Cobain, splatered his brains all over the ceiling leaving nothing more than his lower jaw connected to his body.

Its messy

and the cowards way out.

It's all about sales. His books are out of control now. I understand what you mean now, I thought there was a scandal that was involved with after his death.
