RIP Hunter S. Thompson

There he goes. One of God's own prototypes. Some kind of high powered mutant never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

- Hunter S. Thompson

I know that not a lot of you are going to care, or even really know who Hunter S. Thompson was. If not, I feel rather sorry for you. The man was a genius, a product of pure and amazing rebellion from the Nixon years, who sailed all the way kicking and screaming to the Bush regime of today. He was a wordsmith beyond compare, a writer who exuded pure passion, and one of the main influences on my drug experimentation times. If you have only seen Fear and Loathing, at least read the book, and you should also check out Where The Buffalo Roam with Bill Murray. And if you haven't seen Fear and Loathing, for fuck's sake, check it out. It will truly be a sad world without his creativity and outlandishness to bring a new spin on the events of the day.

On a happier note, GorillaMask is back up and running. He had to take down his mirror, but he got to talk to the Secret Service, which was probably good fun. I talked to him, and he let it be known that he loves pushing the envelope like this, so I can only say kudos.

I know what you're thinking, two posts in one night?!!? Well, it's been a crazy weekend, don't get used to it assholes.
