Hunter S. Thompson was one of the writers who made ME want to be a writer.
He's also the guy who made me not afraid to do drugs.
He's the guy who made me not afraid to mix drug, and I can recall more than a few road trips and adventures, to Las Vegas and other places, that had me on some savage drug-fueled adventure where I tried to recreate my own wild and insane "Fear and Loathing" Adventure.
"Make a beast of yourself to forget the pain of being a man." A great quote, and words to live by, at least during my college and post-college years.
Shit, man. Shit.
