Happy Birthday, Hunter S. Thompson

Today would’ve been Hunter S. Thompson’s birthday. He was born 18th July 1937 and every year on this day his fans around the world like to have a glass of Wild Turkey and celebrate on of the finest journalists and writers to have ever lived.

Beatdom editor David S. Wills penned a tribute to the man that you can find on his personal blog.

Marty Flynn from HSTbooks also wrote a great piece about him.

Wayne Ewing’s fourth Hunter S. Thompson documentary began shipping a few days ago in anticipation of his anniversary. It’s called Animals, Whores & Dialogue. See it at his website.

  1. My copy of Wayne’s film came this morning..Now its time to clear the house of distractions and be a hermit for 90 minutes. Thanks for the mention too!

  2. Excellent. I’ll be collecting my copy in person. I don’t trust these Korean mail men to get the thing here before I leave.

  3. Hunter…..dead?
    NO WAY MAN!
    LIVES ON……
    …..in the hearts of those who loved him.
