*Chuckle* My dad accidentally made a 'ghost' picture on that very same cemetary (Père La Chaise) a couple of years ago. Smoking whilst making a picture gives nice effects!


As for the picture...not very convincing to me.

First it starts with two pictures of Morrison, whoever he is, then some sort of album cover, or something, on the table has a picture of him.

If you don't see him in the graveyard photo, it only means you're not very suggestible.

A very famous American alternate news radio host, Art Bell says this song paralleled O.B.L. in 2001. During the first Gulf War in 1990 and 1991 I always thought it paralleled S.H. We gave that man a ride. We gave both a ride.

The 1st Gulf War was named Operation Desert Storm, and if millions thought this song was connected it's never discussed in alternate news.

Snopes takes interest in a topic called Hidden Messages in Music. I think they are looking for messages hidden on purpose. Not by coincidental synchronisity.

"Riders On The Storm" from 1971 by The Doors' album L.A. Woman.


Riders on the storm
Riders on the storm
Into this house we’re born
Into this World we’re thrown
Like a dog without a bone
An actor out on loan * S.H.'s doubles? Most lyrics sites say, "alone" so listen very closely. [Wink]
Riders on the storm

There’s a killer on the road * Improvised Explosive Devices? Car bombs?
His brain is squirmin’ like a toad * A perfect description of a terrorist's brain.
Take a long holiday * American citizens.
Let your children play
If ya give this man a ride * S.H.
Sweet memory will die
Killer on the road, yeah * I. E. D.s? mentioned a 2nd time.

Girl ya gotta love your man * A soldier's wife or girlfriend.
Girl ya gotta love your man

Take him by the hand
Make him understand
The World on you depends
Our life will never end
Gotta love your man, yeah


Riders on the storm
Riders on the storm
Into this house we’re born
Into this World we’re thrown
Like a dog without a bone
An actor out alone *S.H. was alone when caught!
Riders on the storm

Riders on the storm
Riders on the storm
Riders on the storm
Riders on the storm
Riders on the storm


A dictator is a bad actor that too many believe.
I hear this song nearly every night on the road listening to Classic Rock radio. I used initials for the Islamic jihadist's names. ECHELON is reading the important names we print out.

CGK [Wink]

PS Is Jim Morrison a cowboy in Montana? That story has been on alternate news a little last year, but not this song with the "killer on the road." [Mad]

So if you're tired of the same old story,....Oh, turn some pages. REO Speedwagon from Champaign,Urbana, Illinois.

It looks like a guy jumping off the steps, maybe even skateboarding. :\ Its suspicious that the guy is off-center, but the 'ghost' is dead on.

Jim Morrison was a little dude...and the "image" looks bigger to me. Taller and much heavier. But then again, maybe my eyes are wobbling... [Eek!]

No, I'm not kidding. You're only 10 years older than me, so I wouldn't say you were that old.

Now Me:

I guess not...maybe it's just that I listened to bands like the Doors, Jimi Hendrix, Uriah Heep and Black Sabbath, etc, during my high school years(and in the present in fact)...but...10 years CAN make a difference. The Doors were an excellent band, please try to listen to them and see what you think.

I didn't know there were people who didn't know who Jim Morrison was, at least in an offhand way. I can see not having listened to the Doors, but there are so many pictures of him everywhere. There are even shirts with his picture now.

ETA: I'm not mocking anyone who doesn't know who he is, I'm genuinly surprised. And AFA age goes, I'm only 20.

You'd think so, but the proof that they wouldn't be is the 2 (oh yes) albums they did without him after his death.

No, really. There's a dentist in Coulsdon called Jim Morrison. If you exit the M23 and keep follow the road, going past Renault Couldson, you'll see the sign on the left side of the road! I keep meaning to take a picture of it so I can display it on here, but I'm usually asleep when we drive by it. Obviously I'm not driving.

Ah, kids today. Jim Morrison is everywhere...he was a giant poster on the wall in the vampire's lair in Lost Boys...the subject in a funny skit on The Kids In The Hall...

Go on. Rent The Doors. Sure the facts get screwed up in the movie, but it's like a drug trip just watching it.
