...o royal knavery!


:mad: i'm using the internet. i forget my shakespeare...


A copy of the Complete Works has more or less lived on my coffee table for the last several years, ever since Kenneth Branagh's Henry V aired on PBS. One of these days I'm going to have to put it back in the bookcase. :lol:

Yep, I've got a couple of those myself, but a lot of my bookshelf space these days is taken up with books about a certain young outlaw who was up for a pardon the same time Jim was... plus I've got volumes on interior design as well as Moroccan and Mexican cookbooks on shelves in my kitchen--and boxes and boxes of books in storage. Oy...

i have a bunch of cookbooks too, but i don't have moroccan. do you have a tagine? that cuisine always fascinated me. with those preserved lemons and all the spices.

i love interior design. we built our house so i got to pick all the furniture. i designed my kitchen. it was fun. and, i think it came out the way i wanted and is a reflection of how we are. it's funny, when you pick what you like it all goes together. are you inspired by the nm landscape? i bet the colors there are incredible!

i have lots of books about jim. in 2009 after i saw the oliver stone movie for the first time, i couldn't believe that this guy who i heard was such a genius was actually a raving drunk as he was portrayed. so, i went to amazon and ordered 'riders on the storm' and from there i bought almost every book i could about jim and about the doors.

i think my favorite book in terms of learning about what made jim morrison who he was was "the lizard king was here" which is a book by mark opsasnick who is extremely detailed oriented. it's about jim's time in alexandria virginia. the first part of the book is a little dry and too detailed, but, as it goes on, you learn a lot about the area and he interviewed school friends of jim.

it's amazing to think that each book has a unique take on who he was. it's hard to know what is 'true' and what isn't, but there are common threads.

i just got my copy of the doors unhinged. i can't wait to read it!

Translation problems lol. I read too fast sometimes.

I read your post from 2.15 am in a way as if there was a certain male singer that had taken those books away from you lol. Second: I thought if it was the case then you must be thinking of Jim. Third: I thought if Jim had taken those books from you then you must be in some serious age today lol :D .

I enjoyed reading that book, too. The author didn't leave anything unturned in his research.

very true, texasky! i really enjoyed learning about how the places (especially that book store in dc, i think) influenced jim. and his home...having a separate entry to his room, which was filled with his art.

that book made me think that he was an old soul.

I know he had his own entrance and it was to the basement which became his room where he stayed. I remember that the washer and dryer were down there, too. I believe there was only a half bath.....but I need to go back and read about his art in that area. That must have been the best scenario ...having his own area of the house to himself except when his mother had to come down to do the wash.

I bet he even help his mother out at times with the laundry. There was that side to him.

I am sooooo jealous of you, Tex. Jim never wrote any songs for me... that stinker! <sob!>


Hey Miz,

It took me a while to find this post. Well, now that I have recently listened to the outtakes of 40th anniversary L.A. Woman, I hear that Albuquerque is indeed mentioned by Jim. Apparently there is some ranch he is going to visit and he is taking his beans and jerky to Albuquerque.

Perhaps you two had a conversation about that area?

When I first downloaded the 40 th anniversary and I heard the Riders out takes and Jim doing his song I was curious to know what it was, so I just googled the first few lines he was singing and it came up that it was a tv show in ABQ. It was pretty funny!

When in doubt....I google it! :)
