he invented Gonzo journalism, and proclaimed many times that it failed and is totally impossible! Sounds like you'll get a kick out of him!

They're making a movie of his other fiction book. it was short, and not really good, but i forget the name right now...

still, it'll prolly be a good movie! hell, Depp as Thompson? yeah, i think it'll be fine!

whiskey, racism, money, grease, twinkie's, guns.....yep lol thats about it

I like the guys writing and his character, and also the way Johnny Depp portrayed him in FALILV. I was more into him back two years ago, when I saw the movie and read some of his books. I could really relate to the movie cos I was into a lot of drugs at the time.

Then I read the books and that was a whole new level.

Not exactly a great person though.....the guy did beat his pregnant wife into having a miscarriage if I remember correctly, I know I read it about him, but I don't remember where.

he was a piece of trash personally. treated his family not great. always had tons of loaded guns around, used to mess with people way too much. but all his friends miss the hell out of him!

great literarry mind, and a must read for any journalism fans and politics junkies. the guy had politics nailed!
