DVD: 'The Magic Bus' A Live Documentary to Neal Cassady after 'On the Road'

So I have been meaning to share this since Christmas time, I am not sure if any of you have seen this yet but it is very interesting. I am of course dying to see On the Road. It feels like we've been waiting forever! I've read the book and recently watch this live documentary of Neal Cassady's journey after On the Road came out as a sensational book of it's time. It is a live documentary that was recently released of journey that a few famous people of their time took together on a drug induced "Magic Bus". It talks about On the Road, and Neil Cassady the real Neal is actually the bus driver. There are many famous author's and other very well known people of that generation. Click here to where you can order the DVD but if you have Netflix you can find it there as well. Enjoy!! If you like On the Road this is an account of what happened in history after that time, between the Beatnik and Hippy generation. Very insightful. Thanks Ruby!! 

Oh Yeah Here is a description of the DVD, Magic Trip: In 1964, Ken Kesey, the famed author of “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” set off on a legendary cross-country road trip to the New York World’s Fair. He was joined by “The Merry Band of Pranksters,” including Neal Cassady, the American icon immortalized in Kerouac’s “On the Road.” Kesey and the Pranksters intended to make a documentary about their trip, but the film was never finished and the footage has remained virtually unseen. With MAGIC TRIP, Oscar®-winning director Alex Gibney and Alison Ellwood were given unprecedented access to this raw footage to create a documentary of this extraordinary piece of American history.
