|This Is What Lester Bangs Did to Me.

I love reading interviews or anything written about someone right before they meet the end.
He has some interesting thoughts in the interview, such as the "Hunter Thompsonism" that really is what happened to Hitchcock . . . they bought their hype. It's a feces-tube that you apply to your mouth from your ass, and as you re-gest your bile, the quality of your output slowly declines.
The moral: Never eat your own feces.
On the first scan of anything Bangs, I totally fucking disagree about Kraftwerk and electronic music in general. I, however, didn't grow up in previous generations. I grew up in the era of video games, and the consistent hours of Pac-Man have bled into a fanatic love of Blips, Bloops, and Bleeps.
Welcome to the Sixth Reich, Hunter.
