On the Road

Today’s AGE featured an article on the treasure trove of art, music and literary videos that you can find on youtube. I had a look at a few of them and this was my favourite; Jack Kerouac reading a kind of homage to On the Road one of my favourite books ever and reading it well, before it all went sad and pear-shaped.

You can read the AGE article HERE, but for some reason they’ve left out all the links to the movies, which were in the paper edition, and which is a little frustrating.  A quick search would probably find most of them.
