If you are like me and looked on myspae for an official myspace a thousand times but didn't find one... They finally made one.

Oh and ps; I'm gonna see Riders on the Storm in January in Copenhagen and I CAN'T WAIT! I saw Densmore and Krieger in 1997, but Manzarek was sick. Densmore took over. I hope he's not sick this time around - because this time Densmore sure ain't coming instead of him.

We all heard a lot about Morisson's death. One of my friends grown wise with experience told me, that Jim dead just in right time. Because the threat to be sold was unavoidable. There were not many ways out. Of course we can imagine a lot of different situasions and outcomes. But do you realy believe that Jim could choose life of anchorite?

Jim Douglas Morrison.

I`m not sure if it should be translated like this but it looks like it is.

These words helped me to tell my university report. I like the way he thinks.

So, my next tattoo is going to be of a Morrison quote or a Doors quote. So far the winner is "Death makes angels of us all, it gives us wings where we once had shoulders smooth as ravens' claws."

Does anyone have any other quotes that they really liked that I may not have thought about? Thanks.

new dvd [09 Aug 2005|11:44pm]
danreefer
Yeah there was a new dvd that came out a week ago called INSIDE THE DOORS, 1967-1969: AN INDEPENDENT CRITICAL REVIEW. On the front of the case, it says "FEATURING RARE FOOTAGE PREVIOUSLY UNAVAILABLE ON DVD," and that is a blatant lie. All you get with this thing is a bunch of clips of performances that you can find on other DVD's, (especially The Doors Collection, which includes the infamous Ed Sullivan performance IN ITS ENTIRETY, as opposed to this, which only includes a little bit of the song). In this DVD, after you see about a minute of the performance, it cuts to random interviews with random people adding bits of information about the songs, and each bit of information is either completely useless or already known. Now granted, there are interviews with the actual living members of the band, but other than that, you see people who know nothing about The Doors that the average fan doesn't already know. They interview this guy in a football jersey and underneath his name, it just says "Guitarist," and underneath another name, it just says "Record Store Owner." The things they say are so stupid, too. When they're talking about Light My Fire, the one guy says "When I talked to Robby Krieger about Light My Fire, he said it was the first song he had ever written," and then it cuts to another person being interviewed, and I'm sitting there with my jaw dropped thinking, "No fucking shit. EVERYONE KNOWS THAT." And another guy is like, "The first time I heard The Doors, it was in the 60's, around '67 and I heard Light My Fire and I was absolutely impressed." And then, even stupider, they're talking about Break on Through, and this random guy is like "That song is 2 and a half minutes of perfection. What a way to start your first rock album." I love The Doors, and this is an absolute insult to them. I had been anticipating this DVD for like 4 or 5 months before it was released, because, as a loyal Doors fan, I'm always looking for new stuff about them, and I get lucky enough to find it in a store in Pittsburgh and I waste $21.39 on it. It pissed me off that I wasted my money on it.

John Densmore, former drummer for the Doors, has won a ruling that stops his old bandmates from using the band's name. According to an agreement made in 1971 all three surviving members and Morrison's estate must agree any use of the band's name and logo. The Doors of the 21st Century, featuring original members Ray Manzarek and Robby Krieger together with former Cult singer Ian Astbury, has been touring and playing old Doors songs.

The ruling stops them from using the band's name and states that they have to share all the profits with the original Doors partnership. Says Densmore: "I'm just so happy that the legacy of the true Doors, and Jim Morrison in particular, has been preserved by this decision." There has so far been no comment from the Doors of the 21st Century.



Wow, didn't know that they had been fighting over that. That's sad. But of course Densmore should get paid, it's his music too. But the name-thing... Weird. I mean, they ARE called The Doors of the 21st Century.

i forgot to do my jim morrison tribute on july 3. I did it in my personal journal and it went like this:

Today in history in 1971, Jim Morrison died of heart faulire in his Paris,France Hotel.Rest In Peace. If you would want to read a book about Jim Morrison I suggest "Life Death Legend Jim Morrison" by Stephen Davis it isn't full of bullshit like"no one here gets out alive". Talks about his child hood days of when he used to cut minnie and mickey mouse and put them in sexual postions,a subscriber to mad magazine. A person who sat on the roofs at night in Venice Beach,California and watch the moon.Ray one day(the organist) noticed his talent and formed a band with him. Born In Melbourne,FL. He traveled a lot as a kid because his dad was in the military. He hated his father. His long-term girl friend would drive him insane. Pamela Courson who is burried in Orange County who died a few years later. There is a sick person out there who claims to be Jim Morrison, SICK FUCK! He's making money off of it too.  If I ever go to Paris, France. Right away I'll vist the third most popular tourist attraction there, Jim Morrisons Grave. Don't comment and go"OMGZ HES SOOO HAWT" because I will hate you. He was good looking but he's also very intelligent and that is just disrespect. I am listening to five hours of doors songs.while josh is listening to 11 hours of doors songs. He should've started earlier.
