Daniel Radcliffe is Allen Ginsberg?


Harry Potter is a poet! We knew it couldn’t last forever people, and this years release of “The Woman in Black” proved it. Daniel Radcliffe is moving on. But…can he pull off playing the controversy-stirring American poet Allen Ginsberg? Guess we’re gonna find out.  In Kill Your Darlings, Radcliffe plays a collegiate-age Ginsberg just as he’s meeting influential fellow Beat Generation founders Jack Kerouac (Jack Huston) and Lucien Carr (Dane DeHaan).

Daniel didn’t always have this gig though. When the movie began development way back in 2009, Jesse Eisenberg was slated to depict Ginsberg, with Chris Evans and Ben Whishaw playing Kerouac and Carr. Flash forward three years, there’s a whole new high-watt cast. Elizabeth Olsen is also on board to play Kerouac’s first wife, Edie Parker, and Ben Foster will portray William Burroughs. Michael C. Hall , Jennifer Jason Leigh, David Cross, and Kyra Sedgwick round out the cast.

There is no release date (yet) but according to IMDB we should see Daniel on the big screen again sometime in 2013.



Move Over Kanye West!



Here are the lyrics… just in case you are curious.

My favorite line: “It’s sad I had to kick him out my house though —
He Mispronounced an author – MARCEL PROUST”


Read so hard librarians tryin’ ta FINE me­,
They can’t identify me,
Checked in with a pseudonym, so I guess you can say I’m Mark Twaining.
Read so hard, I’m not lazy.
Go on Goodreads, so much rated.
Fountainhead, on my just read, gave it four stars, and then changed it.
Read so hard, I’m literary.
Goosebumps series, TOO SCARY!

Animal Farm, Jane Eyre
Barnes & Nobles, Foursquare it
No TV, I read instead
Got lotsa Bills, but not bread

Read so hard, got paper cuts
On trains while you’re playin’ connect the dots
All these blisters from turning pages
Read so hard, I’m seeing spots

Your Sudoku just can’t compare
Nor Angry Birds cos look it here
My Little Birds is getting stares
This print’s rare.

Read so hard, I memorize, The Illiad… I know lines.
Watch me spit, classic lit, epic poems that don’t rhyme.
War and Peace, piece of cake, read Tolstoy in 3 days.
Straight through, no delays.
Didn’t miss a word. Not one phrase.

Read so hard librarians tryin’ ta fineee me – That shit cray x 3
Read so hard librarians tryin’ ta fineee me — That shit cray x 3

He said Shea can we get married at the Strand
His Friday Reads are bad so he can’t have my hand
You ball so hard, OK you’re bowling
But I read so hard, I’m JK Rowling

That shit cray
Ain’t it, A? What you readin’?
AQ: DeMontaigne.
You use a Kindle? I carry spines.
Supporting bookshops like a bra, Calvin Klein.

Nerdy boy, he’s so slow
Tuesday we started Foucault
He’s still stuck on the intro? He’s a no go.
It’s sad I had to kick him out my house though —
He Mispronounced an author – MARCEL PROUST

Don’t read in the dark
I highlight with markers
While laying in the park
And wearing Warby Parkers
Marriage Plot broke my heart
And it made me read Barthes
I special ordered a
A softcover not hard- HUAH?AHEHA?!

Read so hard libraries tryin’ ta fine me x 2

I am now marking my place
Don’t wanna crease on my page
Don’t let me forget this page
Don’t let me forget this page
I may forget where I left off so I’ll use this little post it…
I hope it doesn’t fall out, I hope that it stays stickie…

I am now marking my place
Don’t wanna crease on my page
Don’t let me forget this page
I got bookmarks at home
But I forgot one for the road
AQ: I got a bookmark I can loan
La Shea: Know how many bookmarks I own?

I am now bookmarking my page x3
Don’t let me forget this PAGE….

About Misty

Your friendly neighborhood narcissist. I'm sarcastic, cynical and a bit cranky. I own a soap box so big that sometimes I have difficulty stepping down off of it, and I'm about 94% certain I have multiple personalities. I don't sleep enough, and I read more than any person should ever consider normal. I have anger management issues, especially when I'm stuck in traffic and I have an unhealthy obsession with my Kindle. I am a vampire lovin', zombie obsessed, book-in-hand, iPod freak. You either love me or hate me. You be the judge.
