Gonzo, Gonzo, Gonzo, and Some Bourdain Too

With The Rum Diary pre-roll hype starting to reach fever pitch, venerable skin mag Playboy has fluffed up an astonishing array of articles about our hero (and yours) Dr. Hunter S. Thompson.

For those in a situation that isn't conducive to computerized boobies, note that Playboy prompts you to buy the glossy every 37 nanoseconds. We love boobies.

Correspondence between Playboy and the good doctor features a slew of handwritten letters from HST to Playboy's editors and includes his guaranteed hangover cure recipe ("a half dozen amyl nitrites".)

The Playboy Interview : Hunter S. Thompson has HST waxing poetic about drugs after enjoying a breakfast of two bloody marys, three beers and four snorts of blow before sitting down for the interview. His advice is sage:

About twice a year you should blow your fucking tubes out with a tremendous hit of really good acid. Take 72 hours and just go completely amuck, break it all down.

Dr. Thompson died before microblogging and his last transmissions, Post Cards from the Proud Highway, could be considered his only Tweets.

On Gambling:

With sports betting it's always better to strike at the partisan, the home crowd, the emotional bettors. Go into a hostile town at night, visiting, and bet against the desperate, emotional bettors - they'll give you points, and that's the way to win at gambling. And the way to lose is to be one of those emotional bettors.

Seemingly passing the torch, Playboy has invited Anthony Bourdain to be this month's Playboy Interview.

What nicer thing can you do for somebody than make them breakfast? You look good doing it, and it's a nice thing to do for somebody you just had sex with. I think it's good for the world. It's a good thing all around. It's easy. If you're a screaming, fucking asshole a woman would regret sleeping with, then you will probably never be able to make an omelet. The way you make an omelet reveals your character.


Comments & Discussion:

I love Hunter S Thompson but I DO NOT love Playboy anymore. It's almost as "risque" as Maxim. Playboy just doesn't do it for me when there's other magazines like Huster out there showing chicks spreadin it all. But I am down for the acid a coupla times a year. Its known on this site that I'm a huge fan of the X. I just went to a huge ass rave for the first time back in May and had X that was so good the rave became so much and I blew up so hard I almost fucking passed out. It's good to get away from reality every once in a while...and get drunk and high all the times in between....or maybe this is just the life you get when you don't have kids.

I guess folks these days just read Playboy for the articles.......
