Flashback Friday: Jim Morrison

jim_morrison

          He is James Douglas “Jim” Morrison, also known as Jim Morrison. He was an American singer-songwriter and poet, best remembered as the lead singer of The Doors. From a young age, Morrison became infatuated with the works of Friedrich Nietzsche, Arthur Rimbaud, Jack Kerouac, and William Blake, often incorporating their work into his lyrics. In his later life, Morrison developed an alcohol dependency which led to his death at the age of 27 in Paris. He is alleged to have died of a heroin overdose, but as no autopsy was performed, the exact cause of his death is still disputed. His tomb in Paris is still today a shrine to his personality, visited daily by numerous mourners.

            Due to his songwriting, voice, wild personality and performances, he is regarded by critics and fans as one of the most iconic and influential frontmen in rock music history, and, due to the dramatic tinges surrounding his life and death, in the latter part of 20th century he was one of popular culture’s most rebellious and oft-displayed icons, on a par with the likes of Che Guevara, representing generational gap and youth counterculture. He was also well known for improvising spoken word poetry passages while the band played live. Morrison was ranked number 47 on Rolling Stone‘s list of the “100 Greatest Singers of All Time“, and number 22 on Classic Rock Magazine‘s50 Greatest Singers In Rock“. Ray Manzarek said that Morrison “embodied hippie counter culture rebellion…” Morrison was also known as the self-proclaimed “Lizard King” and “King of Orgasmic Rock“.

            Morrison‘s early life was a nomadic existence typical of military families. Jerry Hopkins recorded Morrison‘s brother, Andy, explaining that his parents had determined never to use physical corporal punishment such as spanking on their children. They instead instilled discipline and levied punishment by the military tradition known as dressing down. This consisted of yelling at and berating the children until they were reduced to tears and acknowledged their failings. Once Morrison graduated from UCLA, he broke off most contact with his family. By the time Morrison‘s music ascended to the top of the charts (in 1967) he had not been in communication with his family for more than a year and falsely claimed that his parents and siblings were dead (or claiming, as it has been widely misreported, that he was an only child).

             This misinformation was published as part of the materials distributed with The Doors‘ self-titled debut album. George Morrison was not supportive of his son’s career choice in music. One day, an acquaintance brought over a record thought to have Jim on the cover. The record was The Doors‘ self-titled debut. The young man played the record for Morrison‘s father and family. Upon hearing the record, Morrison‘s father wrote him a letter telling him “to give up any idea of singing or any connection with a music group because of what I consider to be a complete lack of talent in this direction.” In a letter to the Florida Probation and Parole Commission District Office dated October 2, 1970, Morrison‘s father acknowledged the breakdown in family communications as the result of an argument over his assessment of his son’s musical talents. He said he could not blame his son for being reluctant to initiate contact and that he was proud of him nonetheless.

            Morrison joined Courson in Paris in March 1971. They took up residence in the city in a rented apartment on the rue Beautreillis (in the 4th arrondissement of Paris on the Right Bank), and went for long walks throughout the city, admiring the city’s architecture. During this time, Morrison shaved his beard and lost some of the weight he had gained in the previous months. Morrison died on July 3, 1971 at age 27. In the official account of his death, he was found in a Paris apartment bathtub (at 17–19 rue Beautreillis, 4th arrondissement) by Courson. Pursuant to French law, no autopsy was performed because the medical examiner stated that there was no evidence of foul play. The absence of an official autopsy has left many questions regarding Morrison‘s cause of death. In Wonderland Avenue, Danny Sugerman discussed his encounter with Courson after she returned to the United States. According to Sugerman‘s account, Courson stated that Morrison had died of a heroin overdose, having inhaled what he believed to be cocaine. Sugerman added that Courson had given him numerous contradictory versions of Morrison‘s death, saying at times that she had killed Morrison, or that his death was her fault. Courson‘s story of Morrison‘s unintentional ingestion of heroin, followed by his accidental overdose, is supported by the confession of Alain Ronay, who has written that Morrison died of a hemorrhage after snorting Courson‘s heroin, and that Courson nodded off instead of phoning for medical help, leaving Morrison bleeding to death.

WWE Hell In A Cell 2014 Predictions

20141013_EP_LIGHT_HIAC__HOME_tag2_logos

The Usos vs. Gold & Stardust

           I always bet for the Usos to win ’cause I like them, they’re a total perfomers on the ring. But what I think is going to happen is that Team Gold & Stardust ill win this match, maybe by cheating as always.

20141013_EP_LIGHT_HIAC_AJ_PAIGE_HOME

AJ Lee vs Paige

         Let me be honest with all of my readers, I’m actually tired of seeing these 2 faces again and again from previous pay-per-views. I want a new contender for the Divas Championship match or I want a new Divas Champion. WWE is missing other dominant divas like Natalya and Tamina snuka. But for my prediction for this match, I think AJ Lee will retained the title even Alicia Fox interferes the match.

20141013_EP_LIGHT_HIAC_Ambrose_Rollins_HOME

          Dean Ambrose vs. Seth rollins

            Dean Ambrose is my favorite crazy- played wrestlers. And I don’t like Seth Rollins since he left The Shield. So obviously, I’m betting for Dean Ambrose to win, and I think he will win this time.

20141013_EP_LIGHT_HIAC_Bire_Nikki_HOME

   Brie Bella vs. Nikki Bella

         This is the fakest storyline I have watched on WWE. Both Bella‘s have a worst acting, you can tell it too Nikki‘s voice sound and Brie‘s facial expression. Yeah I know, it was all just acting thing, but all I’m saying is that, they are not good actress’. But in this match, I think Brie Bella will win.

20141013_EP_LIGHT_HIAC_Cena_Orton_HOME

John Cena vs Randy Orton

           I’m one of the WWE viewers who are complaining about these 2 wrestlers who always have spotlight on the show. There are many superstars on the locker room, why are they always giving these 2 the spotlight? We all know that they are already popular and what’s best for business. But it is time to give the spotlight to others. But in this match, I think John Cena will win.

20141013_EP_LIGHT_HIAC_Smaus_Miz_HOME

Sheamus vs. The Miz

          These are 2 of my favorite wrestlers. It’s hard to see any one to lose but this must have to happen. As for Sheamus losing the spotlight these days and The Miz having the spotlight, I think, the Miz will win this match.

20141023_EP_LIGHT_HIAC_Show-Russev_HOME

Big Show vs. Rusev

           I’m always excited when Rusev stepped in the ring. Every match he made in pay-per-view was awesome and this time against the Big Show, will be the “awesomest” match between USA and Russia. But I think, it’s time for USA to win, so Big Show for the win.

20140825_LIGHT_NOC_Match_CenaBrock_HOMEPAGE

Brock Lesnar vs John Cena

            I know Brock Lesnar will win this match, and I want him to win the match. I’m just tired seeing Cena holding the championship belt. It’s time for another wrestler to hold it. I’m not a hater of Cena, all I want to see is a new story line.

20140825_LIGHT_NOC_Match_HOMEPAGE_Divas_Sponsor

Nikki Bella vs. Paige vs. AJ Lee

            I want to win Nikki Bella to win this match against AJ and Paige. Just like what in Lesnar‘s and Cena‘s match, I want a new story line. I think Nikki will win tonight with help of her sister, Brie Bella. in my own perception, Brie and Nikki just made this feud for them get the Divas title and get the spotlight on them.

20140825_LIGHT_NOC_Match_HOMEPAGE_DolphMiz_sponsor b

Dolph Ziggler vs The Miz

             I think Dolph Ziggler will win this match. Even I want The Miz to win, but Dolph Ziggler will retain the title, whether I like it or not.

20140825_LIGHT_NOC_Match_HOMEPAGE_HenryRusev

Mark Henry vs. Rusev

            I want Mark Henry to win in this match, but we all know that Rusev will win again. They are pushing Rusev so much in the spotlight, but I think Big Show will be the one to end the winning streak of Rusev.

20140825_LIGHT_NOC_Match_HOMEPAGE_JerichoOrton_Sponsor

Chris Jericho vs. Randy Orton

             I think, Randy Orton will win. You know Orton is unbeatable in every of his pay- per- view matches. And one thing, the authority is on his side.

20140825_LIGHT_NOC_Match_HOMEPAGE_ReignsRollins

Roman Reigns vs. Seth Rollins

             We all want to win Roman Reigns in this match, but unfortunately, I think Seth Rollins will win here because he is going to cheat by slamming the brief case to Roman Reign‘s face.

20140825_LIGHT_NOC_Match_HOMEPAGE_sheamus-cesaro_logo b

Sheamus vs Cesaro

           These 2 wrestlers are the reason why I’m watching WWE, they are my favorites. But for this prediction, I want Cesaro to win, but I think Sheamus will retain the championship.

20140804_LIGHT_SS_matches_AmbroseRollins_Sponsered_Homepage

Dean Ambrose vs Seth Rollins

           I’m not a big fan of these 2 WWE wrestlers, but I’m a fan of The Shield before there was The Shield. But for me, in prediction for this match, Seth Rollins will win tonight. Since he was the Mr. Money in the Bank winner, he will outshine as he deserves to win. It is his moment. Maybe Seth will win with cheats.

20140721_LIGHT_SS_matches_AJ_Paige_homepage_sponsor

AJ Lee vs Paige

           I’m not expecting any jaw dropping match between this 2 Divas. I mean, I love them both, but I’m actually tired of their story line. I really hate Paige when she turned heel and mocked AJ‘s skipping, it was so not in the era of Lita and Trish Stratus. It was actually in the era, when Mickie James imitated Trish Stratus. But in my prediction for this match, AJ Lee will win tonight. Just like what she have said, she is the BEST DIVA IN THE WORLD.

20140728_LIGHT_SS_matches_Jericho-Bray_homepage_sponsor

Chris Jericho vs Bray Wyatt

          Honestly, I really don’t watch their segment on WWE, ’cause it they really made me bored. But my prediction for this match, Bray Wyatt will win tonight, as usual. Either with the help of Luke Harper and the other big guy or he cheat.

20140730_LIGHT_SS_matches_Swagger_Rusev_homepage

Jack Swagger vs Rusev

           If the match was really between America and Russia, definitely, I’m with America. But this is really between, Jack Swagger and Rusev. I know Rusev will win tonight, but I’m hoping the story line will make Jack Swagger win. And besides, I want to see Lana wrestle Zeb Colter. Lol!

20140804_LIGHT_SS_matches_AmbroseRollins_MizZiggler_Sponsered_HOMEPAGE

Miz vs Dolph Ziggler

          This match is kinda interesting to talk about. I like Miz since he married Maryse, ’cause I’m a really really big fan of Maryse, so my loyalty goes to The Miz. But let’s admit, Dolph Ziggler is a better wrestler than The Miz. Dolph is now getting the spotlight again. But in my prediction, The Miz will win tonight.

20140728_LIGHT_SS_matches_ReignsOrton_Sponsored_HOMEPAGE

Roman Reigns vs Randy Orton

           Now this is really a talk- about match. I like Roman Reigns so much. He is my favorite The Shield member. He is bringing out the beast or the animality in him. Randy Orton is hot and young, but my bet goes to Roman Reigns. Roman Reigns will win tonight. But if Randy Orton wins, it might be because of  disqualification.

20140728_LIGHT_HP_SS_matches_StephBrie_1

Brie Bella vs Stephanie McMahon

           This match is really what I’m waiting for. I want to watch and see Stephanie back in the ring, wrestling. Let’s get the thing straight, Stephanie McMahon will win tonight. Brie Bella winning will be a stupid story line. Brie Bella is no Diva in the era of Stephanie McMahon with Lita, Trish Stratus and so many others. Stephanie is the boss, so she is going to do what’s best for the business. What’s best is to see the boss winning.

20140721_LIGHT_SS_matches_cena-brock_sponsor_home

John Cena vs Brock Lesnar

          This is my most hate match ever! I want Brock Lesnar to win tonight, but we all know that John Cena will win tonight. I hope Brock ditch the story line again and get fired by WWE again like what he have done to Undertaker‘s streak.
