(I've been reading Trout Fishing in America lately)


  1. I hope you do one of A Confederate General From Big Sur.

    Firecrackers and frog ponds... could even thematically go with HST's line in Fear and Loathing: "Everything was automatic. I could sit in the red-leather driver's seat and make every inch of the car jump, by touching the proper buttons. It was a wonderful machine: Ten grand worth of gimmicks and big-priced Special Effects. The rear-windows leaped up with a touch, like frogs in a dynamite pond. The white canvas top ran up and down like a roller-coaster. The dashboard was full of esoteric lights & dials & meters that I would never understand — but there was no doubt in my mind I was in a superior machine."

  2. Oh man, Good Call. I need to get on that case!
