My image of Hunter S. Thompson is that if he had had the use of texting is that he would have ordered drugs via text message.
 
2020-06-29 10:08:42 AM  
My image of Johnny Depp is that he's pretty much the same as all the rest of you assholes, and me for that matter. Ya see subby, portrayals of characters in fiction or even history isn't close to real.

"Send....drugs...to..."

"HOW DO YOU USE THIS GODDAMN THING?!!?"

That improves my opinion of him. I order drugs by text. Also, email, phone, through websites and in person. I've even used dead-drops with one extra paranoid dealer.

i have my drugs delivered to me too. trump has bikers bring cocaine to the white house.

I didn't care for the movie version of Fear and Loathing for specifically that reason. The movie made it seem silly they were drugged out and crazy. Haha, they're all high! Ha ha. In the book it was more of a depraved, gross, grimy thing.
 
2020-06-29 11:34:53 AM  
Also, Where The Buffalo Roam is a better film.

Like half the people I know order drugs via text. Why wouldn't he?
 
2020-06-29 11:41:18 AM  
Isn't this more like ordering someone else to order drugs for you?

Tr0mBoNe:

I wonder if the rum diary would have been better with Hartnett instead of Depp.

Murray's Thompson is still better than Depp's

With a shiatload of exclamation marks, probably.

"Need more whitey stuff ASAP brotherman ... and the e-business!!! Please I'm in a bad bad shape. Say NOTHING to NOBODY!!!!"

I dunno subby I this may only strengthen my opinion that he never broke character after Fear and Loathing wrapped up filming.
 
2020-06-29 11:46:15 AM  
Those aren't exclamation points.

They're tracks.

As much as I want to poke fun at Depp he's still a phenomenal actor with range and depth.
Black Mass and Murder on the Orient Express surprised me with what he can do

That's just is proof he's a farking good actor when he wants to be.

There is a difference between a role and player's real life subby. What's next, are we to believe Kevin Spacey is an amoral deviant sociopath whose only concern is personal power and appearing likeable even though he's a horrible person?

. There is nothing in the world more helpless and irresponsible and depraved than a man in the depths of a happy pill and whitey stuff binge.
 
2020-06-29 11:53:39 AM  
... no?

Maybe my hardcore STEM education at one of the most notoriously intense engineering programs in the nation was too artsy-fartsy for subby's tastes, but it did incidentally make me aware of this weird, fringe practice called "acting" that obscure members of an industry subby may never have heard of are known to occasionally engage in.

Here's a short documentary on this arcane, ritualistic tradition:

Having seen Thompson speak, I have to say Depp's portrayal of him was spot-on.

I guess you skipped the 2nd half of the movie that shows the depraved, gross, grimy part.

I kinda thought it would be something in really stupid code.

"Send Elbo of GREEN XMAS trees as fast as you can!"

"Need quarter OZ of SKIING POWDER!!! Ready to HIT THE ALPSSSS!!!!"

Let's just agree that Depp plays drunken, druggy characters *really* well.

Oddly, Benny and Joon, Edward Scissorhands are my standouts for him. Kind of like Brad Pitt, I find him to be used more for the name than his acting ability.

joker420: Drugs should be legal.


Which is why this story means nothing to me. So what if he texted for drugs?

The Feds are so sophisticated these days.  The best way to fool them is to go old school.  Order your drugs by telegram.  They don't even know what that is.

So much talent on both HST films.  I enjoy WTBR a bit more than FALILV, but both fell a bit short of what they could have been.

And Johnny Depp?
 
2020-06-29 12:16:33 PM  
I'm not sure how this is relevant to the libel case. It's not like the he's claiming they lied about him using drugs or ordering them via text.
 
2020-06-29 12:17:04 PM  
So?

I order drugs by smoke signal.  If you stop seeing smoke, send more weed.
How little do you have to have going on socially to care what any actor does off-screen?  My dentist could dress up like a raggedy Ann doll and dance on tables for money, and if he does a good job on my teeth, I couldn't care less.

I still recall the first time I got my brother to watch this movie. Which was just shortly after he decided to flunk out of seminary school after a year. He asks me, "is this movie about drugs?" To which I responded with, "well, maybe a little bit."

Cue opening scene lol. It was fun introducing him to certain movies that he had missed out on. Some people take turns in their life and he certainly did. I doubt anyone would recognize him, that knew him prior to those very pivotal years when he learned that the religion he grew up with, was not the one that awaited him in the real world.

FTFA: ' The messages were sent in early 2015, shortly before an alleged incident in Australia between Depp and Heard that she claims was "a three-day ordeal of physical assaults". '

Perhaps they plan to contend that un-prescribed and un-monitored drug use contributed to a mental state that encouraged violence against his spouse, thus supporting their claim that the alleged violence did occur.

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas sucked. For years people told me how awesome the movie was so I finally broke down and watched it. It was sequel trilogy Star Wars level of suck.

As much as some of us probably don't care or think it should matter, it does matter to the opposing counsel. They will use whatever they can to discredit him in order to win.

When I used to smoke hash my dealer always insisted I say "bishop's daughter" instead of "quarter" (Oz). I think he thought he was outsmarting the Gardaí/police.

The source material was probably not movie-worthy.  Very HST concept, good maybe even great for 100 pages, then ultimately pointless.  There are worse movies, though.

At least I still have Warhammer to give me a reason to hang around in dark parking lots for skeevy deals.

Just seems stupid to provide the evidence against yourself  in any future prosecution.
