Watching Fear And Loathing makes me want to do really reckless shit.

Anyway,as someone pointed out,Thompson's lawer was hispanic.

I think Depp did an excellent job portraying Hunter. Supposedly,Thompson really hated the movie. He thought they portrayed him all wrong. I just think that they were too dead on and he saw some things about himself and his past that he didn't like( ie the way he rambles and mumbles)...and supposedly it was nothing like how it really happened,but isn't the movie's fault because they did a pretty good job of translating the book I thought.

I actually think I kind of talk like Hunter Thompson,or the way Depp portrayed him anyway (many people have told me this).

On a related note,Papaver looks like Hunter's long lost twin or something.

I have a feeling a lot of the book was personal symbolism or some crap, that would only make sense to him? I dunno. Probably not at all... nevermind

That would be a prequal, as The rum diaries was written when HST was 22.

The Rum Diary is not a sequel to F&L.

I have considered such matters.
