Happy Deathday Jim Morrison

“Death makes angels of us all and gives us wings where we had shoulders smooth as raven’s claws.” Doors lead singer and Old Soul Jim Morrison got his wings on this day in 1971. He was 27. Jim left us these thoughts to ponder today: “I am interested in anything about revolt, disorder, chaos, especially activity that seems to have no meaning.” and “Film spectators are quiet vampires.” and “I believe in a long, prolonged, derangement of the senses in order to obtain the unknown.” and “People fear death even more than pain. It’s strange that they fear death. Life hurts a lot more than death. At the point of death, the pain is over. Yeah, I guess it is a friend.” and “The appeal of cinema lies in the fear of death.” and “When you make your peace with authority, you become authority.” and “I see myself as a huge fiery comet, a shooting star. Everyone stops, points up and gasps “Oh look at that!” Then- whoosh, and I’m gone…and they’ll never see anything like it ever again… and they won’t be able to forget me – ever.” That seems to be going to plan so far, Jim. What’s with deathday?

Happy Birthday William S. Burroughs

WILLIAM S. BURROUGHS once said, “”A paranoid is someone who knows a little of what’s going on.” The Green Hotel takes you to Burroughs crossing generations.  He said, ” Happiness is a byproduct of function, purpose, and conflict; those who seek happiness for itself seek victory without war.” and “Nothing is true, everything is permitted.” and “Your mind will answer most questions if you learn to relax and wait for the answer.” Vegetable people. Bill was born today in 1914. Not dead/Dead since August 2, 1997
