was he kino?
Was he kino?
Just look at him. If that isn't kino, nothing is.
Please go back to /r/ gonzo kiddo
He slapped the title Dr. on his name without even getting a doctorate.
I really need to read Fear and Loathing again, because I'm probably not correct in my thoughts on it.
I felt like it tacked on the themes that it's praised for exploring and that it should be a more subconscious experience.
The book literally told me about the American Dream in sections that are removed from flow of the adventure.
I preferred Hell's Angels even though I found his writing style to be sightly meandering and not well constructed in the context of a novel.
I liked it.
he could have been but he got famous and never put out a decent novel
I think he paid $50 for a mail order doctorate in theology.
pta and fiona lol they looked perfect :/
Is that Agent 47?
he had a mail order doctorate in theology and like radiology. i think
And Proud Highway is 1.99 on kindle atm
Proud Highway, Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail, and Hell's Angels were all great reads. Haven't read Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, so I can't comment on that. Dude has a unique, entertaining style and some great insight on American culture in the 60s. Definitely kino.
Based. For someone who spent his life feeling bad for being confused with his fictional persona, the man sure went a long way to live as absurdly as his characters. My favourite anedocte of him is when he ran for sheriff and completely shaved his head so he could call his conservative oponent "my long haired rival" or something like that.
"Buy the ticket, watch the movie" he always said.
he ran on this platform "Rip up all city streets with jackhammers" and "sod the streets at once.... All public movement would be by foot and a fleet of bicycles, maintained by the city police force."
"Change the name 'Aspen', by public referendum, to 'Fat City'. This would prevent greedheads, land-rapers and other human jackals from capitalizing on the name 'Aspen'.... These swine should be fucked, broken, and driven across the land."
"Drug Sales must be controlled. My first act as Sheriff will be to install, on the courthouse lawn, a bastinado platform and a set of stocks in order to punish dishonest dope dealers in a proper public fashion. Each year these dealers cheat millions of people out of millions of dollars.... it will be the general philosophy of the Sheriff’s office that no drug worth taking should be sold for money."
"Hunting and fishing should be forbidden to all non-residents, with the exception of those who can obtain the signed endorsement of a resident- who will then be legally responsible for any violation or abuse committed by the non-resident he has ‘signed for’…. By this approach-making hundreds or even thousands of individuals personally responsible for protecting the animals, fish and birds who live here-we would create a sort of de facto game preserve, without the harsh restrictions that will necessarily be forced on us if these blood-thirsty geeks keep swarming in here each autumn to shoot everything they see."
"The Sheriff and his Deputies should never be armed in public. Every urban riot, shoot-out and blood-bath (involving guns) in recent memory has been set off by some trigger-happy cop in a fear frenzy."
"It will be the policy of the Sheriff’s office savagely to harass all those engaged in any form of land-rape."
