"but they boldly asserted their right to freedom in going out the way they did"
pretty big fucking difference between one man with terminal cancer killing hisself and another dieing in his sleep when he went to seek help for a drug addiction.
this is Thompson's legacy:
"Football Season Is Over
No More Games. No More Bombs. No More Walking. No More Fun. No More Swimming. 67. That is 17 years past 50. 17 more than I needed or wanted. Boring. I am always bitchy. No Fun — for anybody. 67. You are getting Greedy. Act your old age. Relax — This won't hurt."
this, on the other hand, is Garcia's legacy:
Thanks for the video CC. Hunter Thompson is one of my heroes. Truly a unique guy. His statement in the above clip "The US is the greatest enemy of freedom in the entire world." is pretty bold. But it was statements like that interwoven with fiction that made him highly readable and a very difficult character to portray.
He took his life in 2005, a bullet to the head in the face of terminal cancer. He definitely went out the way he lived. It was the end of an era. Jerry and Hunter are comparable in that they did what they liked their entire life. In the end their art suffered but they boldly asserted their right to freedom in going out the way they did
ok, so, maybe just maybe that website is a bit exaggerated...
in recent years I seen a pic of Steven, outside a Bangkok tailor shop, with the owner of the shop, supposedly reccomending that that tailor is the best in the world.
Whats become of Steven Segal? This movie was near or at his pinnacle as the macho martial arts kick-ass man's man best.
This film is notable for the three minute ending where Segal goes on a freaking tear against the oil companies and auto barons of the combustion engine. Goes to the heart of the matter and is something everybody should see. A more definatively righteous statement in a major release you'll NEVER see.
~ It's oil for the rich and babies for the poor. We've got everyone believin' that more is more ~

A classic. Easily the best screen adaption of Hunter S. Thompson's debut of gonzo. You really owe it to yourself to see this movie.. You can stream it for free on fancast.com.
In case you're not familiar, Hunter S. Thompson covers a narcotics conference in Las Vegas and then does a story on the Mint 400 race for Playboy. The real quest is for the soft white underbelly of "The American Dream", which is eventually traced, in a drug induced frenzy, to the casino at Circus Circus in 1971.
Lots of music from the 60s and 70s, snippets of course.
Get this movie shows San Fran blues legend Paul Penas journey to the land of "Throat singing"
And the road goes on forever....
