Also, if you like Dr. Gonzo, you should know that he was based on a real person.

And that real person was fuckin' pissed at being portrayed as Samoan.

Oscar Zeta Acosta was a Chicano lawyer in the revolutionary '60s.  At the time, hispanics were considered "white" legally, so their schools could be segregated, not subject to Brown vs the Board of Education.  Acosta changed that.  He also did a lot of acid and peyote.

Anyone interested in Dr Gonzo would do well to read Diary of A Brown Buffalo, and Revolt of the Cockroach People, two sutobiographical novels by Acosta.

I loved Fear and Loathing, Johnny Depp was incredible.

We are always acting on what has just finished happening. It happened at least 1/30th of a second ago. We think we're in the present, but we aren't. The present we know is only a movie of the past.

His ashes were fired from a cannon atop a 153-foot tower of his own design (in the shape of a double-thumbed fist clutching a peyote button)

“You see this glass bong?” asks Achaan Chaa, the Thai meditation master. “For me this glass is already broken. I enjoy it; I smoke out of it. It holds my water admirably, sometimes even reflecting the sun in beautiful patterns. If I should tap it, it has a lovely ring to it. But when I put this glass bong on the shelf and the wind knocks it over or my elbow brushes it off the table and it falls to the ground and shatters, I say, ‘Of course.’ When I understand that the glass is already broken, every moment with it is precious.”[/quote]

I'm a massive fan of HST...I must have read most of his books but still need to complete the collection...got this one a little while ago:



Great pictorial book illustrating his life very well.
