Hunter S. Thompson Calls Tech Support, Unleashes a Tirade Full of Fear and Loathing (NSFW)

It has been said that “the true voice of [Hunter S.] Thompson is revealed to be that of American moralist … one who often makes himself ugly to expose the ugliness he sees around him.” That ugliness served its literary and journalistic purpose, no doubt. As for the purpose it served in his private life, in the realm of getting nitty-gritty, mundane things done, that’s a whole other question. Not much is known about this clip other than it features a NSFW voicemail that the gonzo journalist left for his local AV guy in Woody Creek, Colorado. The poor man….

    I’m a genuine fan of Thompson’s best writing – which is by no means ALL of his writing – but I’m convinced that what he most needed was another good ass-kicking like the one he got from the Hell’s Angels. Honestly, given the stories of his mistreatment of everyday people, I would have been quite happy to bitch-slap the good Doctor and snap that ridiculous cigarette holder over my knee. Plus, after all he went through in his life, he took the coward’s way out with that shotgun. Legacy tainted.

    He takes a while to get into character, doesn’t he?

    What a douche.

    How reassuring to see he still pisses some people! keep commenting crap like somebody gives a shit, please.

    He’s an old man by this time you fool! He’s talking about a god damn DVD player!

    If you think that nonsense bullshit will get you anywhere then you’re in the wrong game.

    You may have some of the lesser people convinced – but not me Jack. I’ll see you in hell.

    Did anyone ever say HT was well-balanced? Read Fear and Loathing for god’s sake!

    Sounds like the oceans of booze and drugs had taken their toll. Higher, empathic brain functions gone…leaving the angry, cunning lizard brain to spew and sputter.

    In response to Paul Tatara – I honestly have never understood the response “he took the coward’s way out…..”
    What does that even mean? It’s such a common, cliched response to suicide and i don’t get the thought process. Please tell me what’s the very brave, heroic and proper ‘whay out’?

    I second the recommendation that he needs a good ass kicking. Really, in the great beyond I hope some techies dished out the karmic correction he deserves.

    He did, said and wrote what a lot of us were thinking but most of us just sat around with our thumbs up out butts.
