I am so looking forward to this movie and thrilled that they captured the essence of highway living in a fashion editorial! If you don’t know what movie I’m talking about than get ready for this years cult favorite; On The Road. A flick based of the novel [by Jack Kerouac] that defined a generation in the late 50′s and is gonna rock our generation too. I currently have the book in my purse and intend to read it for the second time in preparation for the movie.
I hope the fashions in the movie are just as good as this editorial. I love when they can incorporate current fashion trends and [fall] season with a time period spread. And I really hope Garrett Hedlund looks that good too. I’m not usually the kind of girl that lusts over celebrity and famous persons but my goodness does that guy shine. He has this unassuming and strong quality about him. And those eyes are piercing. He had me at Friday Night Lights even with an unattractive mullet. But I digress. This isn’t that kind of blog. Haha.
More importantly, Kerouac’s words from this particular book [and now movie] are words that I [want] live by and what really lights a fire in me:
“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 who 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!’ ”
On the road on a lost highway.
