jack kerouac 90 years old in heaven today!

jack kerouac was born 90 years ago today, in lowell, massachusetts, on march 12, 1922.  i posted on the occasion of his 89th birthday, last year (can a year have flown by that quickly?).  this year, however, some really big news is worth reporting - his classic autobiographical novel, "on the road" has finally been filmed!  at some point this year "on the road" will reach the big screen and we'll have the opportunity to see it.

in the meantime, here is the official trailer:

the film is directed by walter salles, who also directed "the motorcycle diaries," another fantastic road epic!

happy birthday, in heaven, jack!
