Breakfast at Hunter S. Thompson’s

"Breakfast is the only meal of the day that I tend to view with the same kind of traditionalized reverence that most people associate with Lunch and Dinner. I like to eat breakfast alone, and almost never before noon; anybody with a terminally jangled lifestyle needs at least one psychic anchor every twenty-four hours, and mine is breakfast. In Hong Kong, Dallas or at home — and regardless of whether or not I have been to bed — breakfast is a personal ritual that can only be properly observed alone, and in a spirit of genuine excess. The food factor should always be massive: four Bloody Marys, two grapefruits, a pot of coffee, Rangoon crepes, a half-pound of either sausage, bacon, or corned beef hash with diced chiles, a Spanish omelette or eggs Benedict, a quart of milk, a chopped lemon for random seasoning, and something like a slice of Key lime pie, two margaritas, and six lines of the best cocaine for dessert... Right, and there should also be two or three newspapers, all mail and messages, a telephone, a notebook for planning the next twenty-four hours and at least one source of good music… All of which should be dealt with outside, in the warmth of a hot sun, and preferably stone naked."

  1. Antar att du följer Fredrik Wikingson på twitter. Originellt.

  2. Stadig jävla frukost! Jag vill gärna ha kött eller iaf nåt fett på morgonen. Och ett glas cola. Eller varför inte en bärs om det finns :P

  3. ENGLISH YOU SHEEP FUCKING WORM! ENGLISH!

  4. rectalbleeding69 – win

  5. ¡Oh si!, un buen desayuno para comenzar otro maravilloso dia, con Maria
    :)

  6. use a translator anal-seepage.

  7. hahahahaha @ rectal bleeding

  8. what a wanker, so you get famous for being a writer and then think we’re all interested what you have for fucking breakfast. This isn’t ‘cool’ it’s just stupid. What the…..

  9. actually Hunter S. Thompson is not just a famous writer, hes a famous real life case study in excess and its effects. I could care less what J.K. Rowling had this morning or even what Sam Clemens was munching on while working the river boats, but this guy is fascinating no matter how mundane the task at hand.

  10. If you don’t think he is a great writer read fear and loathing in las vegas god dammit!

  11. Fear and loathing is a wonderful novel, but The Rum Diary is slightly better written.

  12. “The Rum Diary” was pretty good, but I felt like he was kind of ripping off Fitzgerald right near the end. I liked “Fear & Loathing In Las Vegas” more because it seemed like a truly grueling and gritty look into the insane lifestyle of a drug addled sports writer. I’m going to be honest though, I really didn’t like the movie very much. I felt that the adaption from print to film lost a lot of the essence of what Thompson had written and how he had written it.

  13. Also @ Matt, what this man ate for breakfast is easily a hundred times more entertaining and interesting than anything you will ever do in your lifetime.

  14. Dick head

  15. Well, Matt, he’s a famous writer for two reasons, his journalism (not one article of which you’ve probably ever read), and his books ABOUT HIS LIFE (which are far more widely known). Obviously, people do care about what he does in his daily routine, or he would never have become a famous writer.

  16. if only he hadn’t pussed out and seen the ride to the end…. suicide=pretty lame

  17. when the going gets weird the weird turn pro

  18. Say whatever you want about HST’s way to end it. But at least he went out with a bang.

  19. People that knew him loved him for some strange reason,I always thought he was an asshole.

  20. For more information about his life read the ” kitchen writings or readings of HST”
    It is written by his best friends and gives a real insight into his crazed life.Which seems mostly spent drinking, doing drugs, driving to fast,shooting weapons of all kinds day and night and more of the same day in and day out.

  21. “spent drinking, doing drugs, driving to fast,shooting weapons of all kinds day and night and more of the same day in and day out.”

    And what part of awesomeness don’t you understand?

  22. J
    If your were his neighbor you might have a different thought about that,but as I stated those in his inner circle loved him.I think everyone else found him to be a drunken nut who could be very dangerous although he only did shoot himself.

  23. -Bill
    In 2000 he also shot his assistant, although accidentally. He’s definitely a nut case, but the beautiful ones are always crazy

  24. Ending his life with a shotgun in his mouth beacause he’d lived enough is what makes him a heroe to me

  25. Having control of your own fate, I’d imagine, must be incredibly liberating.

  26. had a huge smile after reading this and then a serious scowl after viewing some comments

  27. Man, life is way too short to get bummed out about the comment section. Instead go do something awesome, or at least do some awesome drugs!

  28. Killed himself with a revolver my man. His doctor neighbor (who loved him) said he couldn’t have placed the shot more square on his brainstem…for y’all non-Hunter fanatics (I’m sure the fans have seen this one), please watch “Where the Buffalo Roam” with vintage Bill motherfrickin Murray. And read his biography co-written by his longtime editor, friend, and founder of Rolling Stone, Jann.

  29. The movie sucked. It did not convey the mad genius of HST, just a caricature. It did not convey what a beautiful danger this man was to polite society and the overly hip… His articles, his books… they were HST.

  30. The movie sucked. It did not convey the mad genius of HST, just a caricature. It did not convey what a beautiful danger this man was to polite society and the overly hip… His articles, his books… they were HST. Also…the internet is global…not everyone speaks English…drop the xenophobia.

  31. I just love the Idiots that come onto a site for fans that want a little info on one of their hero’s and bash him to razz us. You guys are pathetic! There is a new drug for you Matt, H. S Jackoff and Billbofagenz. It is called KCN, you all should try some.

  32. Matt, kill yourself.
    All of you, kill yourselves.

  33. He was a great writer no doubt. I wonder why many of the great writer were addicts/alcoholics (same thing)
