Whiskey With Kerouac

irresponsible

 

I got shitfaced with Jack Kerouac last night. Home alone and with no real desire to accomplish anything, I drank neat rye whiskeys and read Scattered Poems. For those unfamiliar, Scattered Poems is a collection of vulgar and visceral poetry from the author’s travels across America. It is excellent in every meaning of that word, but I’m not really here to discuss that. I am here to encourage you to remember to live life in your way. I want you to stop and enjoy the whole experience. To remember to be more than just be acquainted with what sings to the muse within you. To taste the entire encounter complete with inspiration, love, joy and rage.

Sometimes, you have to spurn responsibilities and follow your own agenda. Sometimes you have to do the impractical thing that feels right in that moment. Sometimes, you should make that last cocktail when you’re already on the edge of drunk. Sometimes you should eat that last piece of cake. Sometimes you should make conversation with a complete stranger. Sometimes you should walk barefoot in the grass and look at the stars. Sometimes, you should make some decisions in the now and enjoy life for the luscious mystery that lies within.

 

Reality will always be right there waiting for you when you return from your chosen sabbatical. It vigilantly stalks you eager to present you with a new list of demands. Ii will meet with higher tolls and more stringent responsibilities. It will take your spirit and rob your very essence if you allow it. It is imperative that we realize that we are so much more than our agendas and professions allow us to be. We are a vast conglomerations of hope, dream and desires. It is vital to the human condition that we feel and question and contemplate. It is vital that we do not lose touch with the impulses of our imagination. We must continue to wonder, or truly all is lost.

 

 

I encourage all of my illustrious readers to enjoy some of Mr. Kerouac’s fine writing here.

Bram Stoker’s Dracula Review

DRACULA (1958)

TITLE: DRACULA (1958) • PERS: LEE, CHRISTOPHER • YEAR: 1958 • DIR: FISHER, TERENCE • REF: DRA015CJ • CREDIT: [ THE KOBAL COLLECTION / HAMMER ]

Once again I delve into my kindle to find free classic literature. This time I read Bram Stoker’s Dracula. Did your English teacher lie to you? Is it worth your time to crack the cover open? Have the movies and tropes covered everything you need to know?.

We all know that vampires have gotten a lame reputation as of late. Still living in the sparkle light of the Twilight movies, it is almost hard to recall scary vampires. Going back to the source material of such an iconic creature really reinvigorates a such a well known subject. The story of Count Dracula has been told and retold in every form of media existing. From the iconic portrayal by Bella Lugosi, to the memorable Tomb of Dracula comic and even being the Belmont’s reason to exist in the Castlevania video game franchise. We are all familiar with Van Helsing, stakes through hearts, sleeping in coffins and Transylvania. Even with all of well knows of this tale, I’m just going to say it, Bram Stoker’s Dracula kicks ass.

If you are a fan of dark atmosphere that just builds on itself, this is your book. Stoker does an excellent job of making the Count out to be a predator whilst the reader is the prey lost in his jungle. The methods in which the preconceived notions Dracula are stripped away and he seems so otherworldly. The ambiance and state of fear and uneasiness amongst the characters as the Count manipulates those around them is breathtaking. As the reader you both dread and anticipate Dracula’s next move.

I can see why this book has continued to be adapted again and again.It entertains throughout, it drags a bit toward the end as Van Helsing pursues Dracula back to Transylvania, but that is a minor complaint in what is a great experience.
