Oh what the heck, one more thing. This is just my personal opinion, but I really wonder how Jim would like the commercialization of the Doors as it seems to be on this forum to me. It was something he fought against when he was alive and one thing I like about them is what they used to stand for.

Good comment first statue... I´m sorry to say this here but for many people as I know from private conversations this forum isn´t an alternative to the old forum. There were not only interesting discussions on the old board but also people who knew Jim. Maybe to some here this isn´t interesting but many liked to hear what they were kind enough to share. From what I know they are not interested in posting here. Many of the people on the old forum have been posting on the Freedom Man Forum too already, including me. Seems to be the only alternative... You really could sometimes learn from these discussions on the old board, you were well informed about new books etc. and could ask questions. It was a great board!! Why can´t both exist equillay?? For those who like the old baord they could post there and those who like this board more can post here.

For all you guys who are so bent out of shape about missing the old forum, there is an alternative. I know not many of you are familiar with me on this forum, mostly because I have moved over to The FreedomMan.com. It is exactly like the old forum that you guys are so familiar with. It's pretty cool. Some of their members include Paul Ferrara, the doors photographer, and Vince Treanor, their road manager. I check this forum out once in awhile looking for my old friend MrMohos. You should give it a try. You've got nothing to lose. If you don't like it, no big deal. No sweat off my nose.

But once in a while there was some "bad talk" about the community (like a broken record) even when it was up and running. Couldn't have helped the cause.

1 year 6 months ago in Hollywood Bowl

On 5 July 1968 The Doors took to the stage of the Hollywood Bowl for a concert that has since passed into legend. The Doors were performing on the back of their 3rd album release "Waiting For The Sun" and the US No.1 single "Hello, I Love You". They had been honing their live performances over the previous 2 years and were on absolute peak form. Now for the first time the original film footage from the Hollywood Bowl has been digitally scanned and restored to present the show better and more complete than it's ever been seen before, with 2 previously cut tracks returned to the running order and with sound newly remixed and mastered from the original multitrack tapes by The Doors' engineer and co-producer Bruce Botnick. This is now the definitive edition of this famous performance.

Hey everyone! Glad to be a part of a community of Doors fans! I recently just google searched what mysticated wine is supposed to mean and though I didn't find a very satisfying answer, I was amazed at how there was discussion on different sites on the web about the meaning of different Doors songs. I looked at a page on ' The Spy ' and was amazed that it was all just random guesses from people with no clear-cut answer that was agreed upon and accepted. I'll stick to just tackling one song per post, so I figured I'll make my first post here a theory on what the spy is actually about. Out there, sure maybe… But hopefully you'll find it interesting!

I want to go out on a limb and say that The Spy could potentially be about Orwell's 1984? For starters, in the book there is the ministry of love, and the one for peace, and etc. The song starts off saying that he's a spy in the house of love. Unlikely referring to an orgy filled estate. I know the dream that you're dreaming of, I know the word that you long to hear… Now to be fair I could have a much better explanation had I actually finished the book (I've read the first half and never had time to finish it :/) but the main character in the beginning is questioning his blind loyalty and obedience to big brother, and longs to find someone else who feels the same way. There is a government official pretty high up in which he becomes acquainted with who he hopes will say something, to reveal that he too is against this. The next line in the song is I know your deepest secret fear. This fear is apparent in the main character. Big brother knows the dream you're dreaming of, your deepest fears, etc. I know everything you do, everywhere you go, everyone you know… I'm a spy. Sounds like a full scale police state government is the spy to me… At the end he puts heavy emphasis on knowing your deepest secret fear. And then it ends with I'm a spy, I can see what you do, and I know… "know" is to reflect pretty much being omniscient, the spy knows everything.

thanx you for your insight; bought the book , never got around to readin' it. But, I got the gist of it. It like so applies to today...grocery store knows what products I buy when they scan my card...send me coupons right on time. This website, knows I'm poor as a mouse, yet some motherfuvker here demands money pak be sent... so, the future is money pak...fuvk that. Can you bring back "Defiant" ? I think I have one thing in common with him....~SG

Flashing – 1984 is one of my all-time favorite books and I could go on about it for days, but I’ll try to keep this short :) Orwell left it open to interpretation, although he did briefly mention parallels to religion in the appendix. I was just sharing my analysis. He definitely took inspiration from Communist Russia to create the dystopian world in the book, I agree (and that story in itself is very interesting), but I also think it was a metaphor. I do not, however, think it was meant to be anti-religion, but I can’t really elaborate on that without ruining the end for those who haven’t read it. Read it again with the thought that Julia might represent a certain side of Winston and the conditions of his environment might have something to do with his perspective. It’s all about doublethink, so apply doublethink to the story... suddenly it changes… or does it? ;)

Jim Morrison explains the concept better than I do:

Everything spoken means that,
It’s opposite, & everything else.
I’m living. I’m dying.

With all of that in mind, read again:

War is peace
Freedom is slavery
Ignorance is strength

Is any of it true in terms of religion?
I’ll add another:

True is false.

Okay, that’s a lot. I know. To understand all of that, you need to think in a very abstract and open way. Since this is a fan site for The Doors, it’s probably safe to assume you already think that way :)

I suppose 1984 could be viewed as anti-religion but did Orwell say this somewhere that I can read about Pajama?

The majority of Orwells work was against dictatorshiip and despotism and the allegories with Cold War are many....... Ingsoc - 2+2=5 - Airstrip1 - show trials. Just wondering if similar can be found in the book to show Big Brother was a metaphor for religion and not Stalin. Thanks.

I made an account to respond to this. Not many people realize it, but the "big government" in 1984 was a metaphor for religion. I highly recommend that you read the rest of it. Regarding the song... many of Jim's lyrics have double and triple entendres and can be interpreted in a multitude of ways- that is the beauty. The Spy reminds me of one of his poems:

Wilderness pg. 11.

What are you doing here?
What do you want?
Is it music?
We can play music.
But you want more.
You want something & someone new.
Am I right?
Of course I am.
I know what you want.
You want ecstasy
Desire & dreams.
Things not exactly what they seem.
I lead you this way, he pulls that way.
I'm not singing to an imaginary girl.
I'm talking to you, my self.
Let's recreate the world.
The palace of conception is burning.

Look. See it burn.
Bask in the warm hot coals.

You're too young to be old
You don't need to be told
You want to see things as they are.
You know exactly what I do
Everything

Sorry guys, but I think you are reaching. I strongly believe this song is about Pam, like so many of his songs were. Whether you want to admit it or not, the guy was head over heels. Even though she drove him nuts. She was his cosmic mate, as we all know. I know the guy was deep, but he still had that soft spot. I've said it before, read the book called FAQ, Everything you wanted to know about the Doors. It's a great read. There's a lot of songs that we know he wrote for Pam...Roadhouse Blues, Unhappy Girl, Love Street, just to name few. She was his inspiration. Every guy has that one chick that does it for him. Don't read too much into that song.

Now that you mention it, yes it refers to Orwells 1984 quite a lot on the lyrical side.
House of love, the deepest secret fear...I know everything!
The observation screen (right expression in english, have just read it though only in finnish) on the wall behind the painting. Yes these lyrics really add up to all that!
Does anyone know if this particular song has really got its inspiration from Orwells 1984??

This surely gives me a new perspective to my favourite The Doors Album (Morrison Hotel) and its depths!

That's quite astute. I did the book at at high school (16yoa) so am quite familiar with it. "I know your deepest, secret, fear" line could have been straight out of 1984 but I don't think the other parallel with the Ministry of Love had ever occurred to me. WTG

One thing on the R-Evolution disc I'm really curious about is the music The Doors composed for that car promo or whatever it is. A Ford training film? How long does it run and how would you describe it?

Just curious about the photos. I'm getting the deluxe version regardless. Thanks!

Hello sombra517,

I don't know how many of them can be called rare but what I can tell you for sure is that the book is beautifully done and I would dare to recommend the deluxe version.

Thanks for your comment.

Jim Morrison would have been 70 years old today.
I can’t even begin to explain the sheer brilliance of Jim Morrison that has influenced my life. Still to this day I have a hard time coping with the fact that he is no longer a part of our world. Jim Morrison was beyond intelligent, educated, witty, and eloquent. He knew and understood so much about life and I don’t think there is anything more admirable in any human being. There is never a day where I don’t listen to his voice or think of everything he has left for us to remember — his music, his poetry, his philosophy, his charm. Jim Morrison will live on forever. He will always be a huge part of my life.

"The time you wait subtracts the joy
Beheads the angels you destroy
Angels fight, angels cry
Angels dance and angels die.”

December 8th, 1943 - The end of time.
