Fear and Loathing at Rolling Stone Free download ë 0 review Fear and Loathing at Rolling Stone Nd a lengthy excerpt from his acknowledged masterpiece Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas Woven throughout is selected correspondence between Wenner and Thompson most of it never before published It traces the evolution of a personal and professional relationship that helped redefine modern American journalism and also presents Thompson through a new prism as he pursued his lifelong obsession The life and death of the American Dre. The only reason this has been downgraded is that many of these have been collected in other essays Add to that the fact that Jann S Wenner has the unmitigated audacity to cash in on a collection of Dr Thompson s works all the while complaining about actually performing an the job of an Editor in Chief fills me with loathing His pretentious privileged outlook on life should be called to task but I am certain it never will be or at least not sink in that he is a huge part of the problem in general Mr Wenner constantly let s us know about missed deadlines unfinished pieces and articles not deemed good enough until I just stated skipping his inserts as I already knew about most of them from Dr Thompson himself If you are a collector of Hunter S Thompson go ahead and purchase this Otherwise you may want to give this the go by Mr Wenner constantly let s us know about missed deadlines unfinished pieces and articles not deemed good enough until I just stated skipping his inserts as I already knew about most of them from Dr Thompson himself

Fear and Loathing at Rolling Stone

Fear and Loathing at Rolling Stone Free download ë 0 review Fear and Loathing at Rolling Stone The definitive collection of the king of gonzo journalism’s finest work for ROLLING STONE “Buy the ticket take the ride” was a favorite slogan of Hunter S Thompson and it pretty much defined both his work and his life Fear and Loathing at Rolling Stone showcases the roller coaster of a career at the magazine that was his literary home Jann S Wenner the outlaw journalist’s friend and editor for nearly thirty five years. Fear and Loathing at Rolling Stone The Essential Writing of Hunter S Thompson is a book that is basically just that It was in the early 70 s that I first met HST We used to hang out smoke a little weed do a few lines then drop some blotter and discuss the political chicanery going on in Washington or just the basic fuckedupedness of world affairs in general Vietnam was grist for our mill back then Ol Tricky Dick being the easy target that he was had a great deal to be said and written about him Man those were some wild times Crazy as messed up as we thought Nixon was back then how we wished for him back years later when a particular W winds up stealing the While House Man and we thought some cheap hotel break in was bad ShitI remember HST telling me about how he met Clarence Thomas on a road trip with these two hookersAnd that s my rather feeble attempt at Gonzo Journalism The inimitable writing style that made Hunter S Thompson so uniue and absolutely brilliant Actually inimitable back then but not so much now Gonzo journalism is a style of journalism that is written without claims of objectivity The reporter is part of the story by way of a first person narrative Some of his stories as mine above are so outrageously fantastic that they often defy belief but contain elements of truth only in hyperbole that cannot be deniedThe real truth is that I met Hunter S Thompson in the pages of Rolling Stone never had the honor in person in the 70 s and subscribed to that periodical only to read his writings Journalists are supposed to be objective but objective journalism as HST has said is a contradiction in terms an oxymoron Fox News stands out today as the paragon of that contradiction but even PBS s bias these days is only thinly veiled So give it up don t be a hypocrite Let it all hangout like Limbaugh and Beck Be who you are and twist and crank the reporting of reality anyway you like just don t call it objective or even real With HST this was easy reading for me I adored the guy To me he was a true American hero He was saying things in public not so many people had the guts to say in private FaLaRS is not only essential Hunter S Thompson it is essential reading period I would like to say that I don t care what side of the political spectrum you sit you will laugh your ass off reading this book But that is probably not the case Liberals might actually tear up a little also because they too see the good doctor s sense of reality Conservatives lacking any sense of humor will probably deny the truth of any of what he had to say and dismiss it all as the ramblings of a drug crazed maniacThere s a lot of talk about drugs here not so much about sex or rock and roll There s mostly politics that is as relevant today as it was between the years of Nixon and George W Bush the span of the book There s a wonderful part in the book about HST and Mohamed Ali and other parts as well about other sports figures that are priceless I absolutely loved this book There was not a moment that I was not completely entertained by it It was totally bittersweet and not because HST had the ability to turn the most tragic times in our recent history into something hilarious but because Hunter S Thompson is no longer with us And I miss him like crazyThe narration of this Brilliance Audio production was by Phil Gigante a better narrator to tell the story of Hunter S Thompson they probably could not have found I could not recommend a book highly

Fear and Loathing at Rolling Stone Free download ë 0 review Fear and Loathing at Rolling Stone Has assembled articles that begin with Thompson’s infamous run for sheriff of Aspen on the Freak Party ticket in 1970 and end with his final piece on the Bush Kerry showdown of 2004 In between is Thompson’s remarkable coverage of the 1972 presidential campaign a miracle of journalism under pressure and plenty of attention paid to Richard Nixon his bête noire; encounters with Muhammad Ali Bill Clinton and the Super Bowl; a. This book is a kind of Hunter Thompson reader It contains abridged selections from the years of his association with Rolling Stone At its best it presents a highlight package assembled by Jann Wenner containing pieces from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas Thompson s 1972 campaign coverage Watergate Fear and Loathing in Elko correspondence between Wenner and Thompson and other fragmentsAs a Thompson fan of course I always enjoy reading his work This book though by no means substitutes for reading the full length works and full seuences of pieces it is drawn from If what you re in the mood for is in fact a retrospective cruise through work you re already familiar with it s enjoyable If instead you want to read the real Thompson either for the first time or as a revisiting then you re better off going to the originals I do think it s a shame when publishers substitute abridged versions of already relatively short works encouraging readers to satisfy themselves with less than the real thing And the real thing is available in individual worksIt s hard not to give a higher rating to anything written by Hunter Thompson but the fault here is not his but the very conception of the book
