This Is Bat Country!

Unbeknownst to my buddy, Rob Shimshack, I borrowed his Fear And Loathing DVD. I loved it. It's funny because when the movie originally came out I didn't really enjoy it that much. I couldn't understand why people were raving about this movie that had no story or plot and that seemed to glorify drug use and bad manners. After watching it again just a couple of days ago I have a new appreciation for the film. I realize that the story is actually an in-depth examination of a drug experience. The whole movie is about the 'trip.' I loved it. I loved the performances and the whole visual experience that Terry Gilliam provides. I even loved Hunter Thompson's commentary track on the DVD. So here's my tribute. As a side note the Photoshop coloring was done following a tutorial provided by Kazu Kibuishi. I have yet to read one of his Flight books.

Shimshack here. it's very refreshing to hear this (even though you already told me). also, Dr. Gonzo looks like Jackie Gleason. Just sayin'. See you at the wedding. no homo.
