All out, first person and live. Writing with extreme subjectivity; just what you see, as if being behind a camera. Taking matters into your own hands and being part of the scene. From the Scottish meaning last person up at the end of the night and still drinking beers. Hunter Thompson taught so many; "I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me." Webster's dictionary says "crazy, bizarre" but there is so much more. To commemorate the author’s accomplishments after he took his own life, Flying Dog Brewery in Denver added another permanent brew to their line-up. The label features artwork by Thompson’s long time friend and accomplice; Ralph Steadman. If you have seen Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas you understand. Before shooting Johnny Depp moved into Hunter’s basement and lived with the outlaw journalist to study his behavior in-order to righteously portray the man known as the Good Doc.

When it comes to pornography the term 'Gonzo' refers to a style of film making pioneered in the 1990s by directors such as Seymore Butts and Ben Dover.
Gonzo porn took the storyline out of adult movies and headed straight for the sex. No longer would the pornoholic have to fast forward through 10 minutes of inept dialog to get 5 minutes of sex. They got sex throughout the whole video.
Gonzo porn was not always shot in the first person or in point-of-view fashion as some have suggested here and the quality of the movie depended largely on who was producing it.
Half the adult videos you can rent fall into the Gonzo genre.
1) Crazy, madcap, unwieldy, or anarchistic.
2) A perticular style of journalism used most famously by writer Hunter S. Thompson
in the 60s and 70s, in which the journalist becomes a part of the action. A natural extension of Tom Wolfe's "New Journalism
", Based upon the idea that fiction and journalism are both a means to the same end, and that the best journalists have always known this.
3) A blue character on the Muppets with a very phallic nose.
4) A style of first-person pornography, from the view of the camera operator.
There were people running around everywhere, it was pure gonzo!

Gonzo: founder of gonzo is John "Buttman" Stagliano. His wife Tricia Devereaux was kind enough to give us THE definition:
"Gonzo can take on several different forms. It can vary from the cameraman (in adult, very often the director) interviewing the actors, or participating in the scene with dialogue and/or sex. It can also mean that the actors are simply acknowledging the fact that there is a camera shooting what they are doing. So, although in adult gonzo, the cameraman is usually somehow visible or audible, simply the actors playing to the camera constitutes a gonzo scene."
