Today’s diary entry: Herman virtually “takes me with him” as he drives his Porsche, top-down, around Kansas City as I sit in front of my iPad in Washington state.
Filmmaker friend Kevin sees my illustration and responds by quoting from Hunter S. Thompson:
Raoul Duke: We were somewhere around Barstow, on the edge of the desert, when the drugs began to take hold. I remember saying something like: I feel a bit lightheaded. Maybe you should drive. Suddenly, there was a terrible roar all around us, and the sky was full of what looked like huge bats, all swooping and screeching and diving around the car, and a voice was screaming: Holy Jesus! What are these goddamn animals? Huh! Huh! Huh! Fucking pigs!
Dr. Gonzo: Did you say something?
Raoul Duke: Hm? Never mind. It’s your turn to drive.
