Big Wide Open Documentary about Sur

“Who knows, but that the universe is not one vast sea of compassion actually, the veritable holy honey, beneath all this show of personality and cruelty”

I remember reading my first Keroauc sentence in the late winter or early spring of 1997. His epiphanic, chain linked word combinations absolutely blissed me out and I immediately began emulating his style. His run ons and big thought dreams seemed to infuse every moment of my life……. in every minute of my perception, I had Keroauc’s happy goofball darkness at the back of my brain……… I loved it. His novels and poems had changed me………

“I hope it is true that a man can die and yet not only live in others but give them life, and not only life but that great consciousness of life”
.… Today, I recognize his influence in my writing like I recognize my father’s sense of humor and perception within my psyche……….

And as I take every opportunity to please and exalt my dad, so do I take every opportunity to wheeze, squee and geek out over the biggest influence in my writing since my teenage fingers graced the keyboard……………………..

Today I’m wheezing over One Fast Move Or I’m Gone: Kerouac’s Big Sur”, A documentary constructed by Jay Farrar (Son Volt) and Ben Gibbard (Death Cab For Cutie). “One Fast Move” stomps through the lives, locations and panorama’s that helped populate Kerouac’s ‘gritty’ 1962 novel, “Big Sur”…..

Farrar and Gibbard, both widely influenced by Kerouac, also collaborated with others to record a soundtrack which you can preview at NPR

Check out the trailer…………..

  1. I'll admit I failed in my friendship duties by not mentioning anything about this project to you. Ever since I first read about it a few months ago on the Son Volt website I kept thinking "Oh, I bet Lisa would be interested in this" and then I would forget all about it. But obviously you didn't need me to help you discover it on your own. Admitedly, Jay Farrar is the big draw for me, but the whole project looks pretty cool. I'm looking forward to it arriving in the mail any day now.


  2. Spent a good bit of time with the soundtrack this morning……. it's quite breathtaking and both Gibbard and Farrar deliver poetic justice to Kerouac's lyrical framework…… are you expecting both the movie and the soundtrack??When I first heard about this a few days ago, I wondered if YOU'D heard about it — so truthfully I'm not at all surprised to hear of it's impending arrival in your mailbox……. perhaps we can have a screening sometime soon!! Also, it's got Jared and I in the PNW, Monterrey Coast trip planning mood………………… thanks for reading Scotterly………..


  3. Wow, I'm excited that you guys are so inspired! Getting fired up to take an adventure is something we should all do on a regular occassion.I believe I ordered the CD/DVD set,so hopefully they should both be on their way to me. We'll make sure that you guys get to watch it soon.
