Thou shalt not blame The Doors the band for the sins of Oliver Stone, Ray Manzarek, or even Jim Morrison individually.  If you compare the Doors to any number of anonymous psychedelic groups of the time, you can see why they were, at least occasionally, inspired and weird and ever-so-slightly transcendent of their genre.  It is my conviction that if Love had actually toured and not gotten addicted to Heroin and gone to jail, and had gotten an inflated and ridiculous movie made about them, they'd be equally as irritating as The Doors, if not like 5 times more.  Can you imagine if Arthur Lee actually HAD a voice in the popular consciousness?  What a nightmare!  Plus, Iggy Pop is on record as being inspired by The Doors primarily because of how much they sucked when he saw them play at some college in Michigan, which means that The Doors are marginally responsible for punk rock.

I'm not dismissing it as total garbage, but there are lots of people who hearld Jim Morrison as the great genius of songwriting which I can't swallow.

Hey Richard, I just watched the gold suit video.   :o

It's like 5 and a half minutes long!!  And there's 2 minutes of credits!  And the credits are illegible and they have their own soundtrack!  And the soundtrack has sex sounds on it!!

I loved the Grimlock one.
The Amos one was awesome, I was three minutes in before I realised he wasn't entirely serious.

No, it's not gay. It's just super funny. I miss Dr. Katz.

"... when she sings live she says "i miss that stupid ape" referred to paul thomas anderson..."


And so, it all comes full circle for the Best Show.
I really don't appreciate your sarcastic, anti-comedy tone, Bro!
