The Jim Morrison Simulatron

Sometimes, Modernhumorist can still make me laugh.*

"THIRTY YEARS AGO last week, Doors frontman Jim Morrison mixed drugs, alcohol and asthma to ascend to the big Whisky A Go-Go in the sky. Here in the virtual world, though, Modern Humorist has reanimated him in the form of lines and lines of programming code."

Cute...but hardly a "game." Great pix, though.

Not so stupid, either... I had a good laugh.

"Powk and beeeenz!"

Dirjy - I confess I laughed my ass off (I refuse to abreviate that) at the sight of a fat Morrison singing "Powk and beeeenz!"

This thing was in bad taste already; I think for the one where he's a kid singing "Chil-dren...." they could have at least put in a graphic of a car wreck with dead Native Americans. That was obviously the reference.

That was obviously a reference to Oliver Stone's movie about The Doors. I'd agree with THAT.

BoatMeme - apparently, that was a childhood experience Morrison talked about all the time. If it was made up, it was made up by Morrison, not Oliver Stone.

I've talked to the creator of this site a bunch of times. He's looking to make a movie, by the way.

Boatmeme, I'm pretty sure he goes at length about it in many live performances and I'm even more sure its on American Prayer. Worth the 15 bucks for any Doors fan that wants 99% Morrison and 1% Doors.

Aye, but you must be right. I gotta stop posting to Mefi when I'm loaded.
