On politics

"Politics is the art of controlling your environment."
Hunter S. Thompson

(no, not yet turning this into a political blog, tho I am getting a strong urge to; just saw Alex Gibney's “Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson“, and I felt like it deserved a recommendation. And yes, a confrontation with Thompson made me feel overly polite somehow – but I guess not everyone can be a proper Gonzo after all...)


  1. oh, I almost forgot about this movie, wanted to see it, putting it on the queue... ;)

  2. Oh, you should really see it - I think you would enjoy it quite a bit :) it's a very engaging piece of work, and really fun on occasions :)

  3. "very engaging ... and really fun on occasions" so it carries the spirit of gonzo then :)

    (btw, I checked and I think I am the first to comment on your blog, woohoo!)
