A sad day, indeed, for journalism and literature communities alike. A life well spent, though :smile:

I think he meant that Hunter IS a real hero, and so he had to go out like one.

RIP :gonzo: RIP

RIP Hunter

I haven't read this thread entirely so forgive me if I repeat

Hunter LOVED his guns, I really don't think this was an accident, I hope he found his peace. God I will miss him so much, I wish I could explain more :frown:

I was utterly shocked when I heard the news when I woke up a few hours ago. At the same time though - it seemed of character of him. HST was a man who held life by the balls. It's not surprising that he chose to die on his own terms, instead of losing his dignity with severe old age. I don't think he killed himself out of despair or depression. Rather, I believe he was just "cutting to the chase".

My thoughts as well.

The only thing that burns in Hell is the part of you that won't let go of life, your memories, your attachments. They burn them all away. But they're not punishing you, they're freeing your soul. So, if you're frightened of dying and you're holding on, you'll see devils tearing your life away, but if you've made your peace, then the devils are really angels, freeing you from the earth...

This ruined my whole night last night.

I'm still upset as hell.

I've been getting used to him coming out w/ some new book of ramblings every year or so to kick my mind back into high gear and get me thinking.

No more of his great writing is what i'll miss most.

RIP.

I was on 4g of shrooms last night when I heard the news, "How appropriate" I thought. To be in the zone I mean. I have yet to read one of his books, but like others, loved "Fear and Loathing".
I don't have to worry about getting behind on his writings now, since he obviously won't be writing anymore!!! (funny, huh?---yea, I know)

Anyway, we can live another day and we'll be happy (hopefully you guys will be happy) and he won't live another day and he'll be happy too. It's crazy like that.

Peace

Thompson's passing will be mourned by many. Hunter was a man that had the respect of everyone. The very culture that he sarcastically rebelled against, understood and saw reason in his writings.

H.S.T. had left his mark on the world and will not be forgotten, every man's dream.

sleep well my friend,

He will be missed.

I'm quite impressed with the media coverage on CNN. You would think with a radical like HST that his death would be more of a blurb, but they had guests on American Morning recalling fond memories of Hunter and everything. Wouldn't surprise me if Larry King interviews a family member or something this week. It's nice to see the culture abroad paying their respects to Hunter S. Thompson. It seems to be the big story right now.

this one almost always brings me to tears.

does anyone know about that correspondence between thompson and mckenna regarding DMT? I found it a couple of year ago, but didn't bookmark the site I read it from... any help?

Indeed. All of us have those "Time and Place" memories that we will never forget.. oddly enough, they are often associated with psychedelics. I tripped at an old abandoned house with a friend by a river. We camped, set up a fire, and ate acid. Needless to say, that was about 5 years ago, but it feels like an eternity. If I were to return there I would probably be brought to tears of joy.
