Run Like a Jimson-poisoned Buffalo January 27, 2012

Posted by The Typist in New Orleans, The Narrative, The Odd, Toulouse Street.

“When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.”
– Dr. Hunter S. Thompson

The quote was originally a reference to the Oakland Raiders, as I recall either a part of or following the interview with Richard M. Nixon in Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail in which the two discussed nothing but football.

I find a strange analogy between the pro quote and Caros Casteneda’s character Don Juan’s statement that “a warrior is impeccable”, but then I find strange analogies everywhere. All I know is when life gets weird, get down in three-point stance, take the ball life hands you, put your head down and crash through the hole like a jimson-poisoned buffalo run amok. Don’t let the bats distract you.
