Well... I suppose he owned his life.

I wonder how it all went down.

I just bought the Criterion Collection of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and watched all the new extras 2 weeks ago... HST reads Oscar Acosta's eulogy... who will read HST's?

Damn.
But he was a crazy fucker. Don't kid yourself... fucking nuts. And he got rich selling it... HA!

Wonder what HST would say? Let me pretend, at the sake of being criticized, at this troubling moment. (Writer prepares himself by picturing Johnny Depp doing him in the movie, F&L...)

Dr Gonzo/Oscar Acosta wasn't that big a part of his life. They were friends briefly, Acosta apparently raped some kid and fled to the South Pacific where he probably died years ago.

Dr. Gonzo is HST (or so I was thinking)or the style of writing he is credited with inventing. Acosta was his lawyer/friend and not a Dr.
Not clear how HST got his doctorate. Legend has it that he received it via mail order in the late 60's early 70's but I never cared. Just thought it was classic the way he shaved his hair during the election for sheriff and refered to his opponent as a "long hair" (who had a crew cut, flat top).

Dr. Gonzo isn't HST. In Gonzo mythology/literary symbolism Dr. Gonzo is his attorney, Acosta. HST is Rhoual Duke.

Too bad, he was a wonderful writer. I wonder if he had a terminal illness. His writings did not make him seem to be the sort to do himself in in a pathetic display of self pity. Who knows, really? Being murdered would not surprise me as he was a controversial figure.

I found out that he was suffering from, an apparently, chronic pain condition.

What a wonderful idea, starting a rumor that his son killed him without any evidence at all to back it up.

If my dad killed himself, it would make me feel all warm and cozy inside if someone did the same for me.

Seriously though, what an inconsiderate, cruel, stupid, nasty thing to say. Why would you want to rub salt in the wounds of someone whose father just committed suicide? What kind of hatred do you have inside you that would make you say something that vicious and mean?

Okay, now I'm cornfused..... doing a search of "Dr. Gonzo" I found this this site http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hunter_S._Thompson
Hunter S. Thompson - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
and copied this text....

Quote:

Thompson frequently referred to himself as "Raoul Duke" or "Dr. Gonzo."




Then from the same site...

Quote:

t's a misconception that the term was coined by Rolling Stone writer Hunter S. Thompson to describe his (often extreme) reporting. The word is attributed to Thompson, but it was first used by Boston Sunday Globe reporter Bill Cardoso who, after reading Thompson's infamous Scanlan Monthly article on the Kentucky Derby, he proclaimed "That is pure Gonzo!" According to Cardoso, 'Gonzo' is South Boston Irish slang describing the last man standing after a drinking marathon.1

Gonzo journalism was a type of half-fictional reporting where you put yourself in the story and told your personal opinion instead of reporting it objectively. The name Dr. Gonzo was used as a pseudonym for Oscar Agosta who was the attourney described as a 300lb Samoan in "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas". Raoul Duke is the name Thompson used in the book to rent hotel rooms under so he could trash them without consequences.

Annnnnnd I had a light saber and my friend was there and I said "you look like an indian" and he said "you look like satan" and he found a stick and a rock and he named the rock ooga booga and he named the stick Stick and we both thought that was pretty funny. We got eaten alive by mosquitos but didn't notice til the next day. I stepped on some glass while wading in the swamp and cut my foot open, didn't bother me til the next day either....yeah it was a good time, ended the night by buying some liquor for minors and drinking nips and going to he diner and eating chicken fingers, and then I went home and went to bed.---senior doobie
