20th February, 2005: on this day the most paradoxical and genius american writer was shot in the head by a hardcore psychedelic hippie. Yes, today 14 Years ago Hunter Thompson returned his own earth ticket with a gun, stating he needs “No More”. His whole life was no less controversial and made him a living bridge between all circles of society – from convicted felons to presidents. A founder of the later called Gonzo journalism, a style that is written without claims of objectivity, often including the reporter as a first person part of the story. One of those stories, his novel Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, has been filmed by the visionary Terry Gilliam and played by Johnny Depp and Benicio del Toro. The movie is beyond greatness and lets the viewer speechless and unable to recall who does the better role incarnation. It provoked all kind of reactions and inspired generations. So what is it all about Hunter Stockton Thompson and Oscar Zeta Acosta that managed to put a shadow even on their other iconic activities? Make yourself comfortable as Hunter would – pour a fine whiskey with a filtered cigarette in the mouth and dive deep into an old school psychedelic realm!
