    I appreciate Thompsons work in "Gonzo" journalism, his creativity and his open frankness. As for his " manic mumble?" I assume by his exploits he was bi polar X 10 so I understand his " mumble". Being bi polar is a blessing and a curse. Mot a " mixed blessing" because its usually one or the other. People say " you talk too fast , you mumble sometimes" etc to me. My remark is usually " think faster then". As a bi polar there are timesvthings are good the meds are okie dokie etc. There are other times it just is what it is. You live paet of your life over the rainbow and part of it under the same rainbow. When it gets tricky is in the societal norm middle. Thats a place a bi polar doesnt understand. The upside is in my work being bi polar gave me times when I could do amazing things. Even as a stockbroker I never used a calculator. I didnt need one. I can see the numbers in my mind. Im not that proficient on a calculator. I dont trust my inputs as much as my self. Brb
    It must have been forgettable because I don't remember forgettin' it

    As a bi polar you spend a lot of energy in creative endeavors etc. As for me there are not a lot of math minds that enjoy creative endeabors as much as I and vice versa but thats their problem. A bi polar finds his greatest victories and defeats within the bi polar realm. I have a lot to be proud of but a lot of regrets too. As for Thompson? I appreciate him and understand him. However, he is such a self centered degenerate pig it disturbs me

    There have been some pretty good Westerns made in recent years, but the older ones have got something special. My son the film buff recommended The Assassination of Jesse James By the Coward Robert Ford, and I was not impressed; too grim and depressing, but mostly just a few guys standing around talking. I also recently watched Bone Tomahawk, because I like Kurt Russell. (Don't. Just don't.) The remake of The Magnificent Seven was pretty good, but it can't compare with the 1960 original.

    I think i saw Bone Tomahawk. Was that the one with the Troglodites?

    Oh Hell yes. Some scenes, like the one where they're butchering the deputy alive, are really tough to get out of your head.

    I liked Bone Tomahawk. It was... different.

    I have to say my all time favorite western is Open Range with Costner and Duvall.
