Fear & Loathing at Christmas

When TIME magazine writer Sam Allis visited Dr. Hunter S. Thompson  in Colorado in January of 1990, Thompson decided to set his discarded Christmas tree ablaze. He told Deborah Fuller, his loyal secretary of two decades: “Let’s give the journalist a memorable experience to write about. He needs to learn how to burn the creosote out of a chimney."

The soundtrack is Misguided Angel by Canada's own Cowboy Junkies. How perfect is that?
