The Beats

Ginsberg, Corso, Rosset, Kerouac, Burroughs, Donlin, Cassady...

I went through a beat phase when I was 15. After hearing about the making of Ginsberg's Howl I have been thrown into a fit of nostalgia.

They don't make men like these anymore.

Although, they do sort of resemble the now-crowd at Valentine's any given night.

I discovered Kerouac's Big Sur when I was 15 and I swear I never recovered from that! It's still one of my favorite books ever. Glad to hear I'm not the only adult who still knows what happened to "the best minds of my generation".
