I'll stick with Bukowski, thank you very much.

My grandfather looks so much like HST its eerie. Same glasses. Same perpetual cigarette in mouth. Same drinking habit. He's a good talker/bullshiatter/liar. Has the Same apparently invincibility (he's 81).

I miss hunters writing.  He was an incredibly interesting, crazy person.. I think my first real exposure to him was reading his articles when he wrote for ESPN Page 2, back when Page 2 had some excellent writers... like 15 years ago.

Great way to start a Friday!

Also...

bigpeeler: I'll stick with Bukowski, thank you very much.


You realize one can appreciate both, right? And, that they're really not terrible similar?
That said, you can't go wrong with either. How about Tom Waits reading ol Buk?  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HVVzCURucaA

Exactly.

I have it on authority that the goggles are less than effective.

"High off your face in acid", huh?

Subby sounds 12. Did you once smoke three whole marijuanas and almost died?

That aside, you don't "get high" on acid. You experience it.

So I guess the expression "tripping balls" cannot apply as well?

I was introduced to HST back in high school in the 90s, by my crazed hippy/Vietnam vet AP English teacher. I thank him to this day for it.

Sure it can, you're experiencing the trip. My point was that those who have done hallucinogens know that you don't really "get high" on them unless that's a more generalized description of anyone on any kind of drug. You wouldn't say someone "got high" on beer, so obviously distinctions describing various intoxicated states exist.

Bill Murray was a great character but watching him I could still see Bill Murray acting like the good Doctor. Depp just immersed himself in the role so much I forgot for awhile it was him

You know - it's an uncredited part, but is the hotel valet that takes his ticket the bruce guy from kids in the hall? If not, he looks an awful lot like him.

I would say I was high as fark on acid. Like really high, so high I was looking down upon the earth beneath my feet.


been a good 10 years since I've seen the stuff. Sure wish it was a more common find.

Acid? Not really. HST was more of a speed freak. In Hell's Angels, he even mentions that his experience with acid is limited. (Though I have to imagine that HST's definition of "limited drug experience" is very different than most of the rest of us.)

Hell's angels was very early in his career though. I'm pretty sure he had ample opportunity afterward.

Well I've already read everything he wrote, and much that was written about him, so...
But i'd like to keep my face so maybe just a lil bit of anarchy.

I absolutely loved that book...it is well worth the read.

I miss him and his stories.  I think I will read some of his essays tonight to pay homage to the Dr.

There's 4 more pages of archived links on the page as well

I haven't had any acid in years. got any?

I already got high after I got up

Sorry you became a self-parody, Hunter, and even if Ernie was your idol there's better ways to off yourself than to leave a big mess for other people to clean up. That was sort of selfish, man
