About this author edit data
Hunter Stockton Thompson was an American journalist and author, famous for his book Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. He is credited as the creator of Gonzo journalism, a style of reporting where reporters involve themselves in the action to such a degree that they become the central figures of their stories. He is also known for his promotion and use of psychedelics and other mind-altering substances (and to a lesser extent, alcohol and firearms), his libertarian views, and his iconoclastic contempt for authority. He died at his own hand in 2005. [LINK]

Fear and Loathing in Modern Media: Hunter S. Thompson on Journalism, Politics, and the Subjective | Brain Pickings: "An iconoclastic hero of the written word, Hunter S. Thompson (July 18, 1937–February 20, 2005) endures as the godfather of “gonzo journalism” — that once-radical, now-ubiquitous style of New Journalism that does away with claims of capital-O objectivity and instead inserts the author into the story as an active first-person narrator. Thompson, in fact, was characteristically unafraid of vocalizing his opinions as a keen observer of and lively, if not hedonistic, participant in culture. But his opinions of journalism in particular he held and proselytized with especial zest — what it is and what it ought to be, what pretensions it could use to divest and what moral obligations it should at all costs uphold. In Better Than Sex: Confessions of a Political Junkie (public library), the fourth volume of his Gonzo Papers originally published in 1994, Thompson admonishes ..."

It turns out that the Father of Blogging might be Hunter S. Thompson, and his Gonzo journalism. The discourse that propels journalists into action begins with the "Big O," Objectivity. Seems this is not really the case for journalists to exist, according to Thompson.

But in our limited perdition of blogging and writing, we at MooPig Wisdom discover that to be a writer there must be a reader. So to you dear reader, all three of you, we repeat Hunter S. Thompson's words: "...Sacrificing good men to journalism is like sending William Faulkner to work for TIME magazine..."

Rife with Blues
mashed mixed articles by Pat Darnell  |  Aug 2, 2014  |  Bryan TX

If mothers knew how much long term brain damage contact football does to football players [of all ages] would they let their children play football? Football is rife with brain concussions, it is a rite of passage for footballers.

Do you think those mothers would allow their children to play the Blues, if they knew it is an art form that thrives on the locale where it is played? Yep, that's right. You can take the football away from the player, but you can't take the Blues out of the child. And that is a liability in Texas.

Tribute to the Lone Star State: Dispossessed Men and Mothers of Texas | Music News | Rolling Stone: "Most non-Texans tend to think of Texas people as blustering self-righteous assholes, to state it bluntly. That's more or less Janis Joplin's view of the people around the oil refinery town of Port Arthur, where she grew up rebellious and rejected. "Man, those people hurt me," she recalls bitterly. She painted and read poetry, and that made her different, weird. a freak in the eyes of civilized Texans. "I had a lot of hurts and confusions. You know, it's hard when you're a kid to be different. You're all full of things and you don't know what it's about.""

In the Lone Star State, if you have a non-conforming attitude about your life's direction, beware. There are plenty of Texas Southern Baptists and Ecumenical's ready to pounce on your shit.

You might have to have a yard sale and go west.

"... Texas is part of the Old South, but the further west you go across the state, the less prejudice and conservatism and general tight-assed-ness do you encounter. Which is sort of true nationally and may explain why so many Texas musicians have drifted as far west as they can go, to San Francisco. "All this propaganda that this was a free city, that you could dress or do anything anyway you wanted to, smoke dope without a lot of trouble – that's what brought them here," says Tracy Nelson, Mother Earth vocalist whose band is 75% Texan in origin. "They were really driven out of Texas, man. It's a really stupid bunch of clods back there and all the Texas cats I know hate that Texas mentality and all the bullshit."
"No question about Texas soul," Doug Sahm agrees. "But, listen, you pay, dues for that soulfulness. You pay dues for that soulfulness, man."
