Still waking up to her each morning. It ain't over yet. I'll let you know when it's over. A quote I love (perhaps for the irony) "Adventure is just bad planning."

Yeah, but his adventure did not end.azbackpackr wrote:Hunter S. Thompson, I'm pretty sure. By the way, he committed suicide.
FuneralOn August 20, 2005, in a private ceremony, Thompson's ashes were fired from a cannon atop a 153-foot (47 m) tower of his own design (in the shape of a double-thumbed fist clutching a peyote button) to the tune of Norman Greenbaum's "Spirit in the Sky" and Bob Dylan's "Mr. Tambourine Man." Red, white, blue, and green fireworks were launched along with his ashes. As the city of Aspen would not allow the cannon to remain for more than a month, the cannon has been dismantled and put into storage until a suitable permanent location can be found. According to his widow Anita, Thompson's funeral was financed by actor Johnny Depp, a close friend of Thompson. Depp told the Associated Press, "All I'm doing is trying to make sure his last wish comes true. I just want to send my pal out the way he wants to go out."

Animal Chin, the OG Skateboarder that the bones brigade is searching for while tearing up every ramp in sight? Now I need to go find my VHS copy and dust it off to watch it, probably haven't seen that in 10 years or more.
