LATEST: Author Hunter S Thompson's bizarre final wishes will be honoured by friends and family next month (20AUG05) when his ashes are blasted from a cannon over his estate in Colorado.

The cremated remains of the eccentric Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas writer, who was a huge fan of explosives, will be shot into the air over his Woody Creek home.

Johnny Depp, who played the author in the movie adaptation of the drugged up novel, has paid for a memorial platform which will house the cannon, and has hired a Hollywood events planner to oversee the event, which will be closed to the public.
