Today marks the two year anniversary of the death of Hunter S. Thompson by self-inflicted gunshot wound. In honor of this man, I would like to know what everyone thinks: Is it better to burn out or fade away?

Dr. Gonzo: 07/18/1937 - 02/20/2005

Okay. Speaking of burning out, I screwed up the poll choices. Consider this thread dead. I'll respost.

I did not know that. That's some good coachella trivia (if it's true).

Exactly. This is what happens when you don't pay attention when creating a poll . . . but at least we all got a bit of Coachella history!

Yes to polls that don't make sense. Because yes is always the best answer.

And yes that i can't find the repost that was in the lounge a second ago?

Buy the ticket, take the ride, mahalo.

People get called geniuses and legends and stuff far too often these days, Im just gonna say Id have loved to have gone for a beer with the guy, or got an incomprehensible fax!
Any body that gets launched out a cannon when its all over has to be a legend (there,i said it)

Hunter was good people. He has been and will be missed. Gunslinger, have you read "The Curse of Lono"? So, so very good.
