where’s my invite?

Hunter S. Thompson’s widow is holding a massive star-studded party instead of a wake for the writer’s funeral this Saturday – to honor his final wish. The lavish bash, which will be attended by 250 guests including actors Sean Penn and Johnny Depp, will include readings from Thompson’s work and live musical performances. The unusual ceremony will also see the cremated remains of the Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas author, who was a huge fan of explosives, being shot into the air over his Woody Creek, Colorado home. Hollywood star Depp – who portrayed Thompson in the 1998 movie version of the bestseller – is financing the send off, and has been busy constructing a special cannon so he can blast his late pal Hunter S. Thompson’s ashes into the sky. According to the New York Post, the memorial platform/cannon will be unveiled on Sunday and has been modeled on Thompson’s Gonzo logo: a clenched fist, made symmetrical with the addition of a second thumb, perched above a dagger. Thompson’s widow Anita insists the upbeat celebration is perfect for the unconventional star. She says “No crying, no tears, only celebration. He wanted people to celebrate. He envisioned it to be a beautiful party. The most amazing people would be there. His friends would celebrate his life. And he was even specific that there would be clinking of ice and whisky.”

another article that mentions something interesting (when is something about hst not?)…

A hand-scrawled note on the refrigerator in Hunter S. Thompson’s kitchen says, “Never call 911/Never/This means you/HST.”

“If I’d written all the truth I knew for the past ten years, about 600 people, including me, would be rotting in prison cells from Rio to Seattle today. Absolute truth is a very rare and dangerous commodity in the context of professional journalism.”

ooh trent wants me!

listening to the perfect drug… trent wants me! no, for real. seriously! i mean, all you have to see is what i heard. take a look at what he said to me:
you make me hard, when i’m all soft inside
i see the truth, when i’m all stupid eyed
the arrow goes straight through my heart
without you everything just falls apart

my blood wants to say hello to you
my feelings want to get inside of you
my soul is so afraid to realize
every little word is a lack of me

and i want you
and i want you
and i want you
and i want you
