We weren’t sure what to think about the news of a film adaptation of Kerouac’s On The Road at first. We’ve been cautioned against seeing Hunter S. Thompson’s The Rum Diary and have been disappointed by every Secret Garden movie adaptation ever made. But we have to say that after watching the trailer for this year’s On The Road we can’t help but be a little captivated.
And for a fabulously passionate quote to end your Friday work week:
“They danced down the streets like dingledodies, and I shambled after as I’ve been doing all my life after people who interest me, because the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones that never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes ‘Awww!'”
-Jack Kerouac, On the Road, 1957
