We Are Totaly Lost. Imagine That.

"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, and the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing. Instead they 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

I found out yesterday that Kristen Stewart is going to be in the film adaptation of one of my favourite books, On The Road by Jack Kerouac. Basically the book is the story of a part of Kerouac's life where he travelled back and forth across America, pretty much because he had nothing else to do. It's strange to read because there are no paragraphs or chapters; Kerouac wrote it as one long, continuous roll on his typewriter, so when you flick through the book, it's just blocks and blocks of text. But it's a beautiful book and, more than anything, it really, really makes you want to buy a car and just road trip for the next year of your life.
