Trust only movement. Life happens at the level of events, not of words. Trust movement.

"I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me."

Forty-eight hours on my own and the descent into hell has begun. Have begun addressing the plants by their full Prussian-court honorifics. Weekend project: redecorating office with stiletto heel, penny nails and ratty pink boa.

Last weekend, friends and family of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson gathered at his home to send the old dervish off in true gonzo style.

Oh, and this rare and true piece of mutant art is Steadman's tribute to the man, the myth, the monster.
