Still remembering Jim Morrison..two great videos, one of Jim speaking his poem while playing piano, the other profund quotes of his, true, very deep

I found these two videos of Jim Morrison..I was blown away hearing him read one of his poems...it's very beautiful...he plays the piano in the first video..and the other videos are quotes of Jim's someone added music to and please read all those quotes they are so so true..I am amazed I understood and agreed with a lot of Jim's quotes...they are profound....about being "real" and who you are, not letting other people make you be who you are "not". I have two books of Jim's poems...they are an incredible body of work, for one who passed on so young.

Another line from Jim's "An American Prayer" is "Do you know we are ruled by TV"?...to think he wrote this line about 40 years ago and I feel it's much much more true now than ever before...tv rules us...glad I don't watch too much of it..especially reality tv...it sucks and I wonder why do people seem to thrive on those stupid shows? I really do not understand? What about their own lives? Rather than living someone elses lives on reality tv???? Anyway I'd like to get your input comments on what you think about Jim Morrison's philospophy quotes..they really really hit home and I find very deep and true...something for all of us to ponder about now in this chaotic life of ours that we lead in this crazy mixed up world..

Beautiful poem by Jim Morrison...his voice is so profoundly soft, deep and serious in this video...let me know what you think...it's amazing..

*Correction....Jim Morrison is not playing the piano as noted in this video I downloaded from youtube...it's someone else who is playing the piano music to Jim speaking his poem...whoever put this piano music and Jim's speaking the poem together did a very good job, that's for sure!

Quotes and Philosophy of Jim Morrison...incredibly true! I couldn't agree with him more and am not surprised at the intuitive sixth sense he had about these words he wrote or said when he was alive. I feel that Jim was born long long ago during the Myths of the Gods...way way back when...so I had always felt Jim would not be in this world for long this time around...he had just come "back" for a short while to maybe finish what he needed to do, from his other past life. He walked through the "door" and broke on through to the other side. He was most definitely an "old soul"....from the deep forest hills of the "ancient ones"...

I've never paid much attention to Jim Morrison and I watched both of these videos and a lot of it resonated with me. Of course, I have had the MOST wonderful thoughts and conversations while under the influence of many things and won't apologize for that. I liked what he said about being who you are...and that he drank so he could talk to assholes. Perhaps you have sparked an interest in me to read more of him ... I was too busy with Janis Joplin and Joe Cocker when Jim Morrison was out also. I liked what he said about alchemy. Funny enough, I just sent a very personally revealing email reply to a cousin I've never met but who sent me a fwd'd email about "Joe legal vs Jose illegal" which just got to me enough to want to reply back. I am going to fwd it to you with my reply. I probably lost another relative. What can I say? I noticed you deleted a recent post. I also have deleted some of my posts when I googled my name and found some very disagreeable things posted on Google from a post. It really angered me and I found the one way to not have things taken out of context on google was to delete it and there's nothing for anyone to go back and view. Assholes!
Anyway, thanks for these ... it's always good to free my mind and open up to new ways of thinking which, quite often, are so similar to my own that it is like finding a kind soul as a universal friend.
Love,

Like the music of the Doors a lot. I also like the tabloid headline I saw once of Jim being alive and living as a monk in the Italian Alps.

I forgot to add that knowing Morrison's lifestyle while a singer seeing him as a celibate monk was a riot. Supposedly, Elvis was there also.

Nice stuff though, he was a great poet.

Love Jim Morrison and The Doors, and I love your continued appreciation of his work and his life. Your artwork of his is wonderful, especially for a 17-year-old!

I am sharing this post with Riyadh in Bangladesh, who recently posted a video of The Doors. Perhaps he will leave a comment for you. (He is referenced in my latest post.)

Thanks for this post. It helped me know the philosopher side of Jim Morrison. I would be searching for more of his works. I really like his words. They are deep and so much practical. I feel the thirst of learning more about him. Once I'm done I will be sharing it in my blog Inshallah.

And I like your Blog too! :)

@Lydia: Thanks a lot Aunt for suggesting this special post to me. Love.

I have one of his books, their vinyl LP's and CD's. He was a fascinating poet and obviously had a high IQ. It remains tragic that he perished. I have the rare CD's of "Other Voices" and the long forgotten "Full Circle". Robbie Krieger is among my Top 5 favorite guitarists. Nice of you to share this post. In today's world of ordinary, The Door's were extraordinary. They belonged more to my sister's generation. But I appreciate them! :)

I have always liked how they fitted the song "The End" into the movie "Apocalypse Now". Still gives me goosebumps when I hear that. (A Dennis Hopper vehicle also -- hated to see him go)
