Hunter S Thompson

One of the most difficult questions that I have always been asked is the following conversation starter. If you could talk to anyone (Insert Celebrity – Mentor – Etc.) dead or alive whom would you talk to? I have finally found that person. Hunter S. Thompson.

Cielo actually introduced me to him, we watched Fear of Loathing in Las Vegas with Johnny Dep. At first I can say that I did not get the movie. I had no previous experience with who Hunter S Thompson was, and I was just kind of overwhelmed by the sensory input that the movie was. This past week I read an article in Rolling Stone that Johnny Depp wrote about Hunter S Thompson and I have not been able to stop thinking. I was also impressed at how good of a writer Johnny Depp is. How cool would it have been to spend a day with this guy, just talking, just riding motorcycles, or listening to him?

One of the most impressive things to me right now was what he wrote after 9-11 happened. I know there are tons of stories floating around there about his death, and a pre 9-11 article… but I do not want to even talk about that. I just want to say that his writing is just like no other, and I now have a mentor, I now want to write even more than I did before.

Some people might not be able to see beyond a lot of the things that Hunter S Thompson was. He lived a very fast paced eccentric lifestyle. All I see is a loyal friend to many, and an extremely talented writer. Now I will have to read his work and learn. Maybe I will learn something about writing from him, maybe not, but I am finding inspiration on everything that I have read so far.

It is sad that he is not with us anymore, and also that I did not discover him before. I have probably read him before online on his ESPN column without even knowing I was. Now I have a writer and I can finally answer that pesky question. I would love to spend even if just an hour with Hunter S Thompson.

Jesus and Satan were having an on-going argument about who was better
on the computer. They had been going at it for days, and frankly God
was tired of hearing all the bickering. Finally fed up, God said,
“THAT’S IT! I have had enough. I am going to set up a test that will
run for two hours, and from those results, I will judge who does the
better job.”

So Satan and Jesus sat down at the keyboards and typed away.
