The Purple Pinup Guru Platform

When purple things are pulsating on your mind, I'm the one whose clock you want to clean. Aiding is Sparky, the Astral Plane Zen Pup Dog from his mountain stronghold on the Northernmost Island of the Happy Ninja Island chain, this blog will also act as a journal to my wacky antics at an entertainment company and the progress of my self published comic book, The Deposit Man which only appears when I damn well feel like it. Real Soon Now.

Well - they finally got around to doing it. They gave Hunter S.Thompson his final wish. It took a while, seeing as how the Gonzo journalist made himself a hot lead sandwich going back to February 20th of this year.

The memorial was held in Woody Creek, Colorado and according to MSNBC.Com , both the Hollywood personas of Thompson, Johnny Depp (who splurged for the 2.5 million for the cannon and firework festivities) - Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and Bill Murray - Where the Buffalo Roam were both in attendence, as well as Lyle Lovett and one time Democratic nominee, George McGovern (who the PP Guru would have voted for - if he had not been in the third grade!).

Sex toys were in abundance- masks of Richard Nixon were passed around- and champagne corks were flying in the sky before the remains of Thompson were to achieve lift-off.

The PP Guru couldn't think of a better send off. If it had been the PP Guru's memorial service (and let's hope that we never get to that point- after all, the PP Guru has signed for the Immortality clause in his blogger contract! ) he would have prefered that someone or a significant other in a future life will dust off the ol' portable compact disc player and play the Supper's Ready track from the Genesis Foxtrot album for one final time in his memory - providing that it's twenty-five minutes long- so that the PP Guru in that short amount of time could resurrect himself as a pretty flower......or at least, as a giant hogweed and claim to all his non-loved ones that it was all a big 'misunderstanding'.

However, the PP Guru would have been the life of the party if he had attended Thompson's final soiree, in that the PP Guru would snuck in with a real whopper of a practical joke as to switch Thompson's ashes with the grounded up bonemeal belonging to William Conrad.


Get it? ... Oh, shut up. Boy- don't those sparklers look so gosh darn pretty to the:

PS Old Sparky got to go to a preview of "Where The Buffalo Roam" way back when he was in college 25 years ago. We had ether and Yukon Jack®. We were the 5 happy movie previewers attending. We were the target audience.

So lo and behold - we spied Bill Murray in the back row at the Universal Studios screening theater who was watching us - and he asked why we enjoyed the film. We plied his ego with trivia about him and loosened him up; But when his pale companion asked us about the ether - we knew we were in the presence of Doctor Gonzo himself. He was a very nice man and the seven of us ended up at a Denny's ...
