Today would have been Hunter S. Thompson’s 78th Birthday. In 2005 we were delivered the rough news that the gun enthusiast had taken his own life by a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Thompson’s Gonzo masterpieces will remain forever in the heart of cult-classic, pop-culture history. To celebrate his memory tonight I will binge on every film that he has ever influenced beginning with “Where The Buffalo Roam” and ending with “The Rum Diary”!
I learned a long time ago that reality was much weirder than anyone’s imagination. -Hunter S. Thompson
