Thompson: 1

(this post never got finished…can you tell? but i like the fragments as they are. it’s almost a poem. an epitaph for this blog’s first life.)

Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail 72 pp 1-100
Hunter S. Thompson

I now believe that one should, whenever possible, hear an author’s voice before reading his words.

David Sedaris, Sarah Vowell.

In this case I am also hearing Johnny Depp as the author’s voice.

Writing is also about performance. the act of presenting it out loud. VOICE. literal, actual, biology-class sound waves.

personal life goal:  befriend an artist who will be my personal Ralph Steadman, and become symbiotically famous.
