Tipping my hat to Jack Kerouac

 

Jimmy_Durante2

When I was sixteen years old I read “On The Road”, a Beat classic written by author, Jack Kerouac in the 1950’s which is probably the anthem of the Beats or Beatniks, the forerunners of the Hippies in the 60’s. I’m all about history especially this particular avenue of it. This particular book in addition to “The Electric Koolaid Acid Test by Tom Wolf and “A Signpost To New Space” the quintisential rock interview

“On The Road” is a great book that all of you should, either right now (yes, immediately because I say so…..just go and order it from Amazon.com…you’ll be glad you did……OR if you’re like me allow this to sink in unless, perhaps, you’re really hip….then you have no choice but to obey the cosmic wind which has now found you…..you cannot escape……YOUR DESTINY.

I am in control of your brain and you are commanded to buy “On The Road” and the DVD that recently came out.

CLICK HERE AND OBEY:  Clicking on the aforementioned link will be a test to see which one you end of going to. It’s either the “Click” or “Obey” that will lead to either the movie or the book. And not necessarily in that order. (So, don’t try to figure it out…..Just Do!)

If you, by the authority of the Ouija Board are of the school of thought where the book is superior to the movie you will go where you must. I cannot help you furthur.  Hee, hee.

On a lighter note I have provided for you below a recording of a reading (which Kerouac did in many a coffee house back in the day) that he did interspersed with some soothing saxophone.

You’re going to love it.  And, like Jimmy Durante always said in between puffs on is Virginia Slims cigarette, “Just keep em’ comin’, folks.”
