"Gonzo" Viewing Update...

*The following is for entertainment purposes only and is dedicated to and inspired by a true American hero, Hunter S Thompson (HST). This is a test of each reader's humor response system, as required by Homeland Insecurity, on an annual basis. My attorney has advised me to include this disclaimer*

OK, for anyone within a day's drive and the stones to meet me face to face, I'll be reserving an entire section of the ESPN Zone, just down the street from the E Street Cinema, in the name of Raoul Duke, for around 5:30 pm. I want to take over the entire restaurant with crazed Deadheads like locusts in Egypt, if possible. I want to remind the current status quo, in that God forsaken city, what they're up against if they keep fucking with us. Selah!

If The Man is out there reading this, along with your bullshit "new" surveillance law, I'll just let you know that I'll be loaded down with all types of contraband so I would advise bringing everything at your disposal and prepare for an ugly scene reminiscent of the town when it was taken over by drug addled hippies during the Viet Nam crisis. Mace, dogs, tasers, those tear gas guns used to kill Salazar, fuck man, whatever you can get your hands on will be needed to subdue me and my attorney by the time the hor d'oeuvres get to the table. Fair warning...

Viewing Party, Anyone?

"Gonzo", this Saturday night (7/12/2008) @ the E Street Cinema, NW Washington, D.C. in the beating heart of the Beast itself.... if you dare. We're hedging toward the 7:20 pm show, at the moment.

"I like to load up on mescaline and turn my amplifier up to 110 decibels for a taste of 'White Rabbit' while the sun comes up on the snow-peaks along"... Pennsylvania Ave. "Fear and Loathing in America - The Gonzo Letters, Volume 11, 1968 -1976", p. 235. Note that HST says, "... Continental Divide" and not Pennsylvania Ave but I think he'd share the sentiment, had he stayed in town long enough (and met me).

scary shit

scary shit there mom.

another one was Bangkok Hilton, about a brother and sister.

lots of books out too, written by people who were / are inside for smuggling.

don't do the crime if you can't do the time.

BIG warnings printed in RED on the Malaysian arrival/departure cards, that drug traffickers will be sentenced to death. they also announce that on the plane before you land. Thailand has similar punishments for traffickers.

but yeah, Midnight Express is the best among all of those films.

peace

Brokedown Palace (1999)

With Claire Danes, Kate Beckinsale...Two women are arrested for smuggling while vacationing in Thailand.
Not a bad flick, but Midnight Express (1978) was better!!

I mentioned it here a while back.. I don't go to the big theaters much, but this one was awesome on the big screen.
