On The Road: Part 1, Chapter 7 - onesome, twosome, threesome, foursome?


AAAAAAAAARGH!!!   It's an On The Road overload!

And I like it ;)

After the trailer was FINALLY released (unf, just how awesome is it?!) now there are new pics and posters and I so can't wait to finally see this flick - but we get into that a little further down the "scroll" (*ten Kerouac points to me*).

In other news, our apologies for the delay in this post - boring things like work and time zones sometimes keep us from getting our OTR on... collectively at least, we're always rocking like KStew solo ;)

And here we go...

- Lorabell x


Chapter summary:

So with Sal finally arriving in Denver, he's anxious for a long awaited reunion with Dean and Carlo... who, not surprisingly, have been occupied with elsewhere: with women; and themselves.
Dean's juggling MaryLou, Camille and at least a third woman... not to mention Carlo's man crush.  When Dean's not hopping beds, the two cats fan their own egos!
What will Sal do now?

Breaking it down - an excerpt:

LettieLou:  Well, let me start by saying...
LettieLou:  DEAN
DEAN
DEAN
Lorabell:  (and his enormous schlong?)
LettieLou: and his "schedule"
Lorabell: schedule - so close
LettieLou: HAHAHAHA
that's to come
pun intended
Lorabell:  bam!
LettieLou:  (note to the reader: we're not normally so filthy)
Lorabell:  (psh, not in the final edit)
LettieLou: I think this chapter gives us the first REAL glimpse of Dean
and what's important to him
SEX
SEX
SEX
Lorabell:  he is SUCH a MAN WHORE
LettieLou:  worse... a sneaky and calculated man whore
Lorabell:  now, I know it was the beginning of that era, etc
but EXACTLY, so calculated
eugh
LettieLou:  he knows how to get what he wants
Lorabell:  DINGDINGDING!
master manipulator
LettieLou:  because marylou is NOT STUPID
Lorabell:  but i don't think he's that "smart" - he's just charming
LettieLou:  though she's going to appear it for awhile
Lorabell:  word, she totes has the upper hand that way
LettieLou:  oh and she does...

Chatting it up - the complete breakdown:

no spoilers
LMFAO
Lorabell:  girl's got some tricks
LettieLou:  oh she does
Lorabell:  bounce i can't wait
pool Sal though - silly misguided boy
LettieLou:  oh yeah
sal is another story
Lorabell:  Dean's so wrapped up in his self he's almost completely forgotten
i mean
what is WITH those face to face talks?
LettieLou:  and poor carlo! what self absorbed and self important idiot
Lorabell:  i knew Dean was in love with himself but come ON
two of a kind
big time
LettieLou:  yep
exacto
dean wants to have sex
and carlo wants to talk about the theory of why dean wants to have sex
LOL
Lorabell:  LOLOL
LettieLou:  TOMstu is gonna kill, too
Lorabell:  Argh, I don't wanna like him because he's a tool but that shot of him in those glasses was unf
LettieLou:  LMFAO!
he's gonna be good for the part, i think
Lorabell:  yup, i can really see it
although i wish they'd gone with anyone other than Kirsten Dunst
she bugs
LettieLou:  AGREE!
who else? thoughts?
Lorabell:  lol, Camille Belle?
LettieLou:  i think blake lively could have done it
Lorabell:  snort
not keen on her either
isn't Dunst "Camille"?
LettieLou:  yes
Lorabell:  she's brunette, no?
yup
page 43
"i saw a brunette on the bed...
"one beautiful creamy thigh covered with black lace"
Camille Belle would have been good
LettieLou:  yay for LB quoting!
Lorabell:  right?
LettieLou:  she gets on my nerves
Lorabell:  I'm so proud for me, for you ;) 
LettieLou:  LOL
Lorabell:  me too a lil (and she sucked SO hard in "Push") but she's so beautiful
ummmmmm
thinking
LettieLou:  agreed. hated her in push
i'd cast Emma Stone in anything. LOL. i'm super biased
I love her
Lorabell:  NICE
LOOOOOOVE HER
LettieLou:  she's on the celeb bestie list
Lorabell:  agreed
along with Anna Kendrick
LettieLou:  OH! good one!
Lorabell:  did you see 50/50?
LettieLou:  she is way underrated
YES
brill
Lorabell:  so so good
disappointed that didn't get any nomination love
Natalie Portman?
LettieLou:  a tiny glimpse into the dean/carlo relationship (going back to that)
I just came across this
page 44
"What?" said Carlo. "I thought we were going to talk."
"Yes. yes. After."
Lorabell:  Dean rules the roost
i don't know WHY they let him
LettieLou:  "Oh, these Denver doldrums!" yelled Carlo to the sky."
LettieLou either
i do think, though, that garrett is going to bring some humility to him.
he's still a prick
Lorabell:  nod there already seems that glint of uncertainty about him
LettieLou:  but that one scene in the trailer gives me hope
YES
Lorabell:  yuppp
LettieLou:  bingo
great minds
i love page 45 at the end of the chapter how he muses about whether or not dean and carlo have their talk
LOL
that makes me laugh
Lorabell:  aw, he's such a third wheel
he wants to be in on the talk too
LettieLou:  i love that he just went home. LOL!
there's some comedy there
Lorabell:  lol, agreed - lil lost puppy
LettieLou:  "my last dollar was gone"
what a dummy
Lorabell:  so sorry for himself
i'm surprised it's not fucking raining
with a tiny violin playing on the street corner
LettieLou:  oh, wouldn't that be perfect
Lorabell:  no money, no friends, no girl
LettieLou:  but we'll get our rain earlier in the movie
Lorabell:  wah wah
LettieLou:  sappy gas station scene
Lorabell:  blue tint 
LettieLou:  THOSE DAMN SHOES
yep
Lorabell:  man, i hope he's wearing crappy shoes in the movie
LettieLou:  me too. it's important to the story
Lorabell:  dude, we seriously HAVE to see this released together
LettieLou:  i'm already counting on it
Lorabell:  i wanna dress up
50's style
LettieLou:  BEAT style
i'm down
Lorabell:  yuppp
inc crappy shoes 
LettieLou:  DONE
what's ur early impression of camille?
Lorabell:  hmmm
for some reason i don't think she's as wise to Dean as Marylou
she's obviously beautiful
and seductive - black lace, helloo
but the opposite of MaryLou
LettieLou:  BINGO
Lorabell:  searches original description
LettieLou:  
Lorabell:  page 2 "beautiful little sharp chick"
Lorabell:  "marylou was a pretty little blonde with  immense ringlets  of hair like sea of golden tresses... her smokey blue country eyes fixed in a wide stare"
oooh,but then "but outside of being a sweet little girl, she was awfully dumb and capable of doing horrible things"
LettieLou:  maybe sal's impression...
but not true
"capable of doing horrible things"
that's key
Lorabell:  nod seems like he's reading her wrong
she's never seemed "dumb"
and if you're "capable of doing horrible things" don't you need some awareness and intention
i.e. smarts
LettieLou:  bingo
Lorabell:  *sigh* boys
LettieLou:  and their impressions...
wrong
Lorabell:  and camille's stark by contrast
LettieLou:  intentionally so, i think
Lorabell:  indeed
LettieLou:  did you see the pictures of the real camille and marylou?
VERY stark contrast
Lorabell:  so much whineyer than Marylou ever was
yup, in that book... what was the name?
i meant to order it
LettieLou:  i saw them on kerouac's site
Lorabell:  ah
people always want what they don't have
Sal should know 
LettieLou:  he's the king
LOL
Lorabell:  but i like his descriptions of Denver
after all that "grass is greener" it seems to have a warm orange tinge to me
cobbled streets, Mexican vibe, mysterious alleys
dark and warm
LettieLou:  and i think he's actually taking in his experiences now...
Lorabell:  like Camille maybe?
LettieLou:  i get yellows and oranges... 
Lorabell:  yuppp
LettieLou:  the gas station was def blues and greens
colors of the sea
Lorabell:  and the drive brighter blues and yellows and greens
LettieLou:  i think the landscape very much has an effect on the "colouring" of the story
Lorabell:  checking the cinematographer
LettieLou:  
Lorabell:  Eric Gautier?
OH MAN
Into the Wild
Motorcycle Diaries
A Guide To Regonizing Your Saints
fuck, this is going to be STELLAR
LettieLou:  SHUT UP
i had no idea
Lorabell:  ME EITHER
LettieLou:  I LOVE the look of Into the Wild
Lorabell:  Unf, don't I know it
SOOO perfect for this too
Motorcylce Diaries was BEAUTIFUL
and A Guide is perfectly gritty
he's IDEAL for this job
LettieLou:  I loved Motorcycle Diaries!!!!!
Lorabell:  yuppp
LettieLou:  brb...
Lorabell:  k 
LettieLou:  back. 
have to say i love the scene in the trailer w/ garrett parking the cars!
have we read about that yet? I forget
Lorabell:  yup, at the beginning
i loved that too
the hustle and buzz as well as the styling
so good
LettieLou:  i couldn't remember. i love the smile on his face in that scene!
Lorabell:  i love that second that she just glimpses over her shoulder in the car
no way no how that girl's dumb
LettieLou:  i know
Lorabell:  OK so how about this
Lorabell:  what DON'T you like in this chapter?
LettieLou:  So...
what DON'T i like?
Lorabell: yup, contraversial!
LettieLou: hmm.... excellent point
i don't like how self important carlo and sal are
Lorabell:  given
LettieLou:  it bothers me LOL
i don't care for dean's treatment of marylou and camille
Lorabell:  like "eyeroll* get over yourself already
LettieLou:  i can't imagine what gives him the right
Lorabell:  oh why they put up with it
it he really that fascinating?
it's like, have you seen High Fidelity?
Lorabell:  and John Cusack's character was sooo in awe of Catherine Zeta-Jones
and then many years later he realizes how IRRITATING she is
so self important and egotistical
LettieLou:  head down
i haven't seen that
Lorabell:  for shaaaaaaaaaame
LettieLou:  go ahead
say it
"woman!"
Lorabell:  ahem
WOMANNN!
LettieLou:  it's on the list
Lorabell:  note the reverberated "n"
I love John Cusack in many ways
LettieLou:  noted
in regards to him being that fascinating...
i def have had people in my past that i was enamoured with and can't for the life of me, figure out why
so i get it
it just irritates me
Lorabell:  but it's an epicdemic here
LettieLou:  yes!!!!
EVERYONE
loves him
Lorabell:  whhhhhhhhhhhhy
i mean, movie wise i can see the physical attraction
but character wise
maybe it's just because that kind of enthusiasm can be infectious
but... it doesn't last very long
LettieLou:  yes and i think they could sense that he was on to something
and they wanted to be part of it
this was right at the beginning of that movement and i don't even think they knew
Lorabell:  nod
LettieLou:  but they knew things were changing.. and they wanted to hang on to anyone they thought could take them THERE
wherever there was
Lorabell:  it's all about desire, man 
LettieLou:  wow, now i sound self important...
Lorabell:  that "madness"
LettieLou:  ya dig?
Lorabell:  ha, never
i dig, daddyo
LettieLou: Chapter 7! In the books!
