Fear & Loathing

I wish I were in Las Vegas right now with a couple of late greats.
Mark Sandman of Morphine would be setting the mood. Hunter S. Thompson would be raising hell. But honestly, could I really handle that?
Anyway, my inspiration comes from watching "Gonzo" this weekend. The smoky, moody sounds of Morphine would've been a great soundtrack to the film.

Have a Lucky Day...

Now I'm sitting at a blackjack table
And I swear to God my dealer has a tag says Mabel
Hit me. Hit me. I smile at Mabel.
Soon they're bringing complimentary drinks to the table...

The words dance like the blues.

Some time back I lived in Aspen and Thompson had place out of town. At a restaurant near his place, the Woody Creek Tavern, there was a framed dinner check on the wall signed by Thompson on which he had written 'I, Hunter S. Thompson, swear to never shoot my gun in Woody Creek Tavern again.' The man raised hell every where he went. LOL

The music of Morphine really connects with women. As fellow musician PJ Harvey once said:

"They're a very sexy band (grins) particularly when you're sitting on the speakers, which I did at a recent festival. It was wonderful."

great blog Suzanne!

I love Morphine! Here's a little-known fact: I'm the inspiration for the instrumental on "Good". heh heh heh. ;)

I forgot to add: I'm hoping to get to L.A. and see "Gonzo". My husband has a graphic novel out right now that has Sherlock Holmes as more of a Hunter S. Thompson character than a straight Englishman. Watson is his Dr. Gonzo!
