Beat News: January 28 1995

1. According to New York Magazine, there will be an open casting call for the main parts in the Coppola film of ‘On The Road‘ on February 4 at the St. Paul the Apostle Auditorium near Columbus Circle in NY. Will I be there? HELL YEAH!!! Not looking to get a part; I’ll just go to hang around and soak in the scene.

I seem to be contradicting my own rumors about this film constantly on this page. I think I’ll just create a new “Road Film Rumors page” soon and put all my misinformation there. The latest rumor, from the same New York magazine article: the film may not happen at all, but if it does it will be Coppola directing, not Gus Van Sant (good!). The screenplay is by Coppola and Michael Herr, who wrote the acclaimed Vietnam novel ‘Dispatches’ and also worked on Coppola’s film ‘Apocalypse Now.’

2. Here’s a brief, interesting poetry page. There’s a cool Jack Kerouac quote in it (you see how easy it is it to earn a link from me).
