RIP Hunter

If you're feeling melancholy, listen to Hunter talk about Nixon's Spirit, on Paul Oakenfold's otherwise unremarkable Bunkaa.

I prefer to think it was an accident, or that he'd like us to think it an accident...

Hunter S. Thompson: ...I've invented a new sport. It's called Shotgun Golf. We will rule the world with this thing.

Bill Murray: "Mmhmm."

Hunter: "I've called you for some consulting advice on how to launch it..."

Just a mishap on the road to a new revolution, that's all. Because I can't bear the idea that Raoul Duke himself pulled his plug and became a casualty in the culture war he fought all his life.

May his funeral offer a proper 9-iron salute.
