"I can’t sit out here and ruminate on the Death of the American Dream. That’s what I tried to impress on you … the importance of providing, in the contract, for adequate expense money to let me get involved. Otherwise, I’ll sit out here and serve up a bunch of pompous bullshit … … [w]hich boils down to the simple, flat and absolute fact that I have no intention of writing an Essay. That’s what critics are for, so let’s give them something to chew on".

new HUnter Thompson Book> The Cozumel Diary

Don’t mean to bug you, but if you’re a Hunter Thompson fan, here’s a glimpse of my upcoming book on Hunter & I when we were in Mexico doing the Playboy Interview in 1974; it’s a coffee table book of never-before-seen photos and stories of our adventures in Mexico (if you know anything about Hunter, just getting out of the airport is an adventure). The photos are all from Cozumel, but the stories also include tales of his numerous visits to Florida whereby I would usually be awakened by a late night phone call to get my butt down to Miami (he did come up to see me in Palm Beach one night for dinner- another adventure). At any rate, check out my Kickstarter page (lots more photos; bring your wallet:)>

But with the throttle screwed on, there is only the barest margin, and no room at all for mistakes. It has to be done right… and that’s when the strange music starts, when you stretch your luck so far that fear becomes exhilaration and vibrates along your arms. You can barely see at a hundred; the tears blow back so fast that they vaporize before they get to your ears. The only sounds are the wind and a dull roar floating back from the mufflers. You watch the white line and try to lean with it… howling through a turn to the right, then to the left, and down the long hill to Pacifica… letting off now, watching for cops, but only until the next dark stretch and another few seconds on the edge… The Edge… There is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over. The others- the living- are those who pushed their luck as far as they felt they could handle it, and then pulled back, or slowed down, or did whatever they had to when it came time to choose between Now and Later. But the edge is still Out there. Or maybe it’s In. The association of motorcycles with LSD is no accident of publicity. They are both a means to an end, to the place of definitions.
