Music Project - Album #26 - A Collection - The Doors @ 22:58

A Collection – The Doors

I remember seeing a film about this woman who collected plaster casts of famous people's knobs. On the film Jim Morrison was having his knob cast. Whenever I hear The Doors, I think of that film.
But for me, the Doors will always be the band in that film with Val Kilmer. The film with Val Kilmer that I watched round at Beanhead's place with Regzy.

This album is 3 hours long and feels like every song Jim Morrison wrote. I'm not a huge fan so I couldnt say if it is or not. I can say that it does have my favourite Doors songs on it: Riders on a Storm and Break on Through.

If you ever wish to part with that, there is a home for it here in Texas. My father got me hooked on The Doors when I was a kid, and I've loved them ever since.

OMG! I hate to admit this but . . . I think I know the film you are talking about!!! I remember seeing something which involved a lot of plaster cast and a lady with a gleam in her eye. Whether the gleam was because of what she was doing with the plaster cast or of the artistic merit of the project she was involved in I'm not quite sure! BTW, I seem to remember that Mick Jagger's proportions were much admired by the lady doing the casting!

This OAP will now go away and hide before my disreputable past is laid bare completely.

I am pretty sure I have watched an interview with the real life lady in question. She was holding the one she made from Jimi Hendrix throughout, and I couldn't help noticing how bendy it was...

Perhaps it was wilting in the heat from her hands!

Of course I remembered the bit about Mick Jagger purely because I realised the artist would have had to have used more plaster of Paris to make it . . . . !!! You may or may not wish to believe this explanation but as I wish to retain some semblance of respectability here . . . . . that's the story I'm sticking with!!!!
