Yesterday, I was working with Jack, who is always ready with a pithy quote.
I had commented that someone was pretty weird, and he said "When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro... Hunter S. Thompson."
Jack always remembers quotations, who said them, and jokes, including complex ones, and gets the punchlines right. A lot of them are from Thompson. Also he does good imitations, not the least of which is Karl Childers, from Sling Blade.
Other deepness from Hunter S.:
The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side.
The Edge: There is no honest way to explain it, because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.
I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me.
Buy the ticket, take the ride.
So deep. I think.
