...which must mean I'm old.

I remember a guy from California I met at university. Upon being confronted with my (temporary) obsession with all things Thomas Pynchon, he shoved a copy of "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" in my hand and told me to read it. I read it in an afternoon and loved it. That was a couple of years before the movie, which is great too. And while we're at it, for another piece of psychedelic sixties California-set madness I recommend Richard Farina's "Been down so long it looks like up to me" (which predates the Doors song of the same name by a few years). Great fun.

Anyway, the Duke will be missed.
