Happy Birfday, Mr. Mojo Risin'...

   Today is Jim Morrison's 68th birthday. I'm one of the many who believe he is still alive, and that he did not die of a heroin overdose in France in 1971. So every year around this time, I like to think about him, play his music a little more than usual, and contemplate how much of a brilliant, sensitive soul he was. So here's a few of my favorite quotes by him, courtesy of

"Where's your will to be weird?"

"Being drunk is a good disguise. I drink so I can talk to assholes. This includes me."

"The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a give up your ability to feel and in exchange, put on a mask."

"The most loving parents and relatives commit murder with smiles on their faces. They force us to destroy the person we really are; a subtle kind of murder."

"Whoever controls the media, controls the mind."

"Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free."

Because of you, Mr. Morrison, we can be free. Thank you for that gift. I hope you are sincerely happy and content, wherever you are.
