Quote of the Week

“Jesus, I thought. We've raised a generation of stone desperate cripples...
The importance of Liking Yourself is a notion that fell heavily out of favor during the coptic, anti-ego frenzy of the Acid Era—but nobody guessed, back then, that the experiment might churn up this kind of a hangover: a whole subculture of frightened illiterates with no faith in anything.”
- Hunter S. Thompson, Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail '72

Hunter always finds his way into my personal roll of Mighty Dead.

More my spiritual father than my own mentor, to be honest.

I think I'll drink to his memory.
