Jim Morrison...alive and well and living in Oregon?
"Rodeos West Motion Pictures Presents James Douglas Morrison Formally of the Doors Musical Group. Now an American Cowboy". A documentary filmmaker claims his rodeo friend is Jim Morrison.
Watch a comparison video (asf file) and judge for yourself.

Personally, I look at the guy and I don't think "Jim Morrison". It's more like "wingnut". Amusing all the same.

It's so convincing that I don't believe it!

Who cares whether he looks like Jim Morrison or not? The question is 'does he sound like Jim Morrison?'

However, the amount of time it took to view the video and write this reply already exceeds my interest in the answer...

Well, I feel like my time spent pissing on Morrison's grave was well-spent. Made me doubt it, though.

Quite right, of course, but ultimately unfulfilling. Voices change, too. John Fogerty doesn't sound like John Fogerty these days.

Weird. I also heard that Andy Kaufman is a dentist in Jasper, Wyoming.

This sure beats holding up a piece of cardboard next to a traffic light.

I can't believe I even took the time to do this, but I did a Google image search for Jim and then compared him with the big picture on that site. Just look at their noses for two seconds and you can clearly see it's not him.

That'd be pretty cool - but I'd rather have Jimi Hendrix pop up somewhere, personally.

This post made me extra happy that I don't have a "rodeo friend."

Amusing post.

I work for a production company here in Oregon, and this guy has been calling our office once a year for the past 5 or 6 years saying that he and Jim have a script they want to shoot. Looks like someone finally went for it.

"... you know they are a liar."

Someone had to say it.

Oh my, ericb. I looked at that website. Oh my.
