Diarios de motocicleta

Filed under: — adrian @ 12:29 am

I saw the Motorcycle Diaries tonight at Flicks. It’s a movie about the young Ernesto “Che” Guevera and his friend Alberto Granando taking a 12000km trip through South America, initially by motorcycle and later by foot, boat, hitch-hiking and whatever other means were necessary. It’s a very interesting movie. The two main characters are interesting and the story is subtle, but engrossing.

Thoughts, in three:

  • there are a lot of movies based on real life, because real life is interesting. leading to…
  • I should write more about my life, particularly a memoir of my time at MIT and the quasi-autobiographical road trip screenplay that I started
  • I really should learn Spanish. If you’re in the Bay Area, you’d understand. I’m not naturally gifted at languages, but there’s no reason I shouldn’t work at Spanish (and later: Zulu and Afrikaans).

    You should definitely work more on that screenplay. I’ll write the soundtrack for it. It’ll be rad-tastic.

    Doesn’t Granando remind you of Devin of “Night Rally” fame?

  3. Adrian Says:

    Yeah, Granando does remind me of Devin. Know who else reminds me of Devin? The guy from Aqueduct.

    How are those Night Rally boys doing, anyway?

    They seem to be in hiding the last 6 weeks or so. They’ve got a steady diet of shows booked starting this Friday, though. I think they were quiet because they were finishing a record, a split 12″ I believe.

    Motorcycle Diaries was great. The “swim” was moving.
