Introducing the HST Watch

April 2, 2004

A blogger named Greg suggested I start a Hunter Thompson watch, with links to stories detailing his misadventures. So, I did. If you look down on the “categories” list on the left you’ll see a link to the category page where all future HST-related postings will be archived.

As long as you’re in a gonzo mood, check out The Great Thompson Hunt, an HST fan site. It’s got tons of photos, book covers and even scenes from the Woody Creek Tavern. (Favorite bumper sticker: “No Sniveling.”)

More goodies for the all you gonzophiles:

And just for fun, an HST quote revealing his uncanny subtlety.

“Who does vote for these dishonest shitheads?” he writes, referring to the people currently occupying the White House. “They are the racists and hate mongers among us — they are the Ku Klux Klan. I piss down the throats of these Nazis.”

    Confession time: HST and Plimpton have a lot to do with my choice of career.

    I’m ambivalent on HST … on any given day he might seem like a crank, a joker, a faker … but on others his insights are dead-on.
    He’s always entertaining, though. Our profession’s Howard Stern.

    Well, I’m not used to instant gratification. Thanks! Looking forward to more such fair and unbalanced quotes in the future.
