All energy flows according to the whims of the Great Magnet. What a fool I was to defy him.

I just watched Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. What a great movie. It might be my favorite movie ever, actually.

The scene during this quote is amazingly powerful. The right words with the right pictures is worth a million words. Maybe something words can’t even express.

And that, I think, was the handle – -that sense of inevitable victory over the forces of Old and Evil. Not in any mean or military sense; we didn’t need that. Our energy would simply prevail. We had all the momentum; we were riding the crest of a high and beautiful wave. So now, less than five years later, you can go up on a steep hill in Las Vegas and look West, and with the right kind of eyes you can almost see the high-water mark – that place where the wave finally broke and rolled back.

What a wonderful time. I wish I could witness that generation.
