Boy, it's exciting around here! I think I'll just sit back and enjoy the fireworks. It IS the 4th of July, after all...
I didn't know Jim, darn it. But my common sense enjoys hearing ANYTHING about him from people who knew him in REAL life. Doesn't mean I believe everything I hear, but it's always interesting and helps us all complete our own little Jim Morrison PUZZLES that we work out in our heads.
Soon enough the next generation or 2 won't have any people to talk to, that knew the man. That's why we're lucky now to be able to hear from people who knew him. Damn, if I were just several years older, I would have figured out a way to get into his life. Or maybe I wouldn't. But I figured out how to get to know Ray, Danny, and even Bill Siddons (who managed ME for a few years!) And I'm SO sad about Ray being gone now. My life is richer because of Ray and Doors music. We should get back to discussing the DOORS items at hand. Too much fighting. It's lame to fight on a message board. Makes us into trolls. Isn't this board going away soon, I've heard? Play nice!
Well, no one seems to like the new board much, and I think Dave said that this one would stay up as long as people were posting here, but there seems to be a rather vocal minority who are determined to do what they can to chase people off it.
As I think I said earlier today, I have no idea what motivates people like Hamlet or "Harry Bosch" in their spite and venom, but I've got a pretty thick skin so I'll be here as long as possible in order to counter the lies and fantasies of the likes of Patricia Kennealy and Linda Ashcroft, and to answer any genuine and well-meaning questions that I can.
And one of these days (as I've been saying for how many years now?) I will add a couple more funny stories to Ballroom Days
and then set up one of those print-on-demand deals with Amazon, since Kerry set it up to be read-only when he put it online back in....whenever it was (2007? 2008? can't remember to save my soul).
And now, ladies and gentlemen, I've just discovered that Oliver Stone's wonderful Salvador
is on the free movie channel (THIS
and I don't think I've seen it since I left Los Angeles over 20 years ago, so if you'll excuse me, I'm going to watch the movie that made me deliriously happy when it was announced that its director had been chosen to make The Doors' movie (which I have not
seen and probably never will.)
They've just assassinated the archbishop (no, not Thomas Becket!) I can't think what the real-life person's name was but Romero sounds about right.
Anyway, catch you later...
