Everyone needs to read this. I have been an admirer of him for a long time and this just helps me like him more. Not necisarily for what he is saying, but the fact that he is saying it. I am not trying to put him on a pedestal or anything, I just respect when people are honest. This is what he believes. Who am I to judge him for that?
“The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.”—Kerouac
A little backstory, i ran into kyle last night at a bar. And beginning of the night he was pretty sober just talking. i walk away for about a half an hour, and I come back to realize he was telling people it was his birthday for free alcohol and had a gold medal wrapped around his neck.
