These are just my opinions and I could be wrong.
To say that the Doors music was not psychedelic is a joke! I must have been tripping on a different planet.
The Doors music wasn't any good! Another joke! There are multitudes who think they were far beyond good.
A Shamen - Hey who the hell wasn't into some kind of mysticism back then 8)
Didn't know what a Poseur was - had to look it up
One who affects a particular attribute, attitude, or identity to impress or influence others.

Again who didn't Poseur back then :roll:
I personally don't need to be forced to think! Thinking, as we have seen, ruins it...
If somebody is off topic a little, cheesch, there's nothing wrong with feeling. If you must berate, for this, at least do it in a friendly manner..Be a Hippie, just be friendly.
Please don't dominate the rap, jack, if you've got nothing new to say.
If you please, don't back up the track; this train's got to run today.
I spent a little time on the mountain, I spent a little time on the hill.
Axioms say "Better run away", others say "better stand still".
I spent a little time on the mountain, I spent a little time on the hill.
I saw things getting out of hand, I guess they always will.

the line is: Heard some say better run away

i'd rather not be labeled a hippie or anything else for that matter. labels are like straitjackets and force you to act a certain way or else you'll be thrown out of the club. like emerson said: be man farming and not a farming man

read this. it's definitely words to live by (if you believing in living by words):

Hi Okeedoe, those were real funny last words. Now that our game has ended, I just want to say that I really liked it. I enjoyed reading, planning and writing it. But if you run into trouble, let me know, the doctor is always in to support you.

As for Jim Morrison, the man may have been a total jerk, that doesn't mean that he wasn't able to come up with some good music. My dislike of the Doors has not so much to do with his pretentions to be a shaman or a poet, I rarely listen to lyrics (I must have listened more than a thousand times to "Ballad", but I don't think I can write down the words faultlessly). My main problem with The Doors is Morrison's voice and Ray Manzarek' organ playing. And I am a happy-go-lucky kind of guy, I was never into Doom. Maybe their music suits downers better.

I think the Doors' music suits those strange types who think it's cool to be a downer. (Gloom is overrated, but it's still very popular with teenagers.) And old Lurch on the scary organ just makes for a darkly serious mood that I can't take seriously. When it comes to cheesy organs I'd rather listen to Iron Butterfly.

Surprisingly, there was a large amount of "doom" back in the age of Aquarius, and the days certainly got stranger and stranger. But all our timelines and locations are different. I guess 2 years can make a big difference in experience in one location, never mind all over the place.
I personally don't hold it against the Doors for not being from San Francisco. I will be content to "be alone out here" for the time being. I go decades like that sometimes, 'till I find someone who not on thinks, but feels the same way. And then the emptiness of heaven welcomes my weary soul :lol: The Doors had every bit of influence on the counter-culture as JA.

maybe but that influence was different in nature

To her, death is quite romantic
She wears an iron vest
Her profession’s her religion
Her sin is her lifelessness
And though her eyes are fixed upon
Noah’s great rainbow
She spends her time peeking
Into Desolation Row

Yes, Susan, yes!
Those first notes organist Doug Ingle plays, coming in again at the end of Ron Bushby"s drum solo in In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida, irresistible. Delicious psychedelic kitsch! Now I think of it, psychedelic music was always a tiny bit kitschy.
