  1. you might want to look in on jeffrey bernard if you haven’t. Goes with the boozin philosophy

  2. hum… how did Hunter managed to pass a day without shooting some kind of firearm? he must have been behaving for his biographer…

  3. Dat shit cray

  4. I wonder what was he doing on special days!

  5. 6am in the hot-tub, high and drunk and eating fettucini Alfredo. What a beautiful monster.

  6. 67 fucking years of pure decadence. So many coke by the way, i wonder how could he just keep his brains inside his head at the end of the day! O_O

  7. He was a extremely well read beast. A beautiful creature that only comes only once in a very great while. I would have love to meet him in person. One of my biggest hero’s and it’s not just because of the craziness it because he had a very rare mind.
