James Franco, Film, and Fangirls

Monday, March 7th, 2011

Today, James Franco and American poet Frank Bidart premiered¬†the cinematic translation of the poem Herbert White. And it was good.

Access: De-Nyed

The level of hysteria and fandom was as viscous as sodium silicate; the roar of the room louder than that of a Boeing 747 engine. People climbing over walls and through windows, and not even to make a horribly ad nauseastic Antoine Dodson reference. You would think that some sort of celebrity was talking about […]
