There goes one of my favorite conspiracy theories


I am a huge fan of The Doors and one of my absolutely FAVORITE conspiracy theories (crazier the better is what I say!) is that Jim Morrison is still alive. Apparently living either in Paris or in Oregon or hell, just about anywhere. Even Ray Manzarek is convinced Jim is possibly alive and hanging out on a remote island.

Regardless, it was a highly circumstantial death...My theory is that everyone was so high, nobody really remembers what happened. I wonder how much of the historical record has been screwed up because of mind/memory-altering substances. It would be curious to research that...

Anywho, one of my favorite conspiracy theories is blown to bits and not even because he really is dead and was killed in a Wiccan handfasting ceremony, because, you know, it probably explains everything.

Jim, I guess, is, alas,really dead as can be seen in the photos below taken by a rock historian, Bret Meisner.


Eerie, huh? Maybe it's time to start new conspiracies about WHY he is haunting his own grave...

At least when I someday make my pilgrimage to leave a bottle of whiskey on his grave at the Pere Lachaise Cemetery in Paris, I know he might get some use out of it in the afterlife.

Man...now I want to crank up "Soul Kitchen" and bliss out!

I heard somewhere that they actually moved him because his grave in France got so much attention that they wanted to discourage people from loitering. So, the question I guess is--who has Jim's body? (Mwa haha) There's your next conspiracy. I love conspiracies.

He's alive and living in the playhouse on the fourth floor of Corinthian Hall. I saw him.

I was thinking of your blog the other day when I was watching one of my favorite zombie movies. Why, you may ask? All the old 50s looking campy food ads and things that you find made me wonder if you ever saw "Fido." It's a fantastic zombie movie that pokes fun of the Cold War era and 1950s. It's very beautiful and lush to watch with the most idyllic setting and 50s flavor and then the zombies...a real contrast. It's amazingly good. Thought you might want to check it out.
