The Doors: Jim Morrison and The Doors Live at The Hollywood Bowl 1968

Source: The Doors: Live At The Hollywood Bowl, 1968

I’ve seen this concert several times and I’m no music expert, but I am a pretty big fan of The Doors especially Jim Morrison and I disagree with the critics about this concert at least to this degree. I don’t believe Morrison was as off as the critics believe he was. I think he did a great job with the vocals and how he entertained the audience in general especially the women. With how he danced and moved around and played around with his leather jeans.

If you watch the PBS film from 2010 about The Lizard King there is this line in it about how Morrison picked out his clothes. That his skin-tight leather pants which were leather jeans and concho belt were about showing off and showcasing his crotch. And you see him messing around with his pants all through the concert and the camera zooming in on his crotch, butt and legs in those skin-tight jeans throughout the concert.

Not the best Doors concert and not Morrison at his best. But it was classic Lizard King on the vocals dancing around and showing himself off. And a great chance to see Jim Morrison and The Doors live and in color and I just wish there were more opportunities for that. Especially since they were big in the late 1960s when color TV and movies were very common if not expected by then. It would’ve been nice had they filmed more of their concerts in color.

They picked the right if not perfect woman for this video. A tall curvy woman, who is very pretty, but the fact that she's tall and curvy for what they're talking about here is more important. If there's a group of women regardless of ethnicity or race that has the hardest time finding the right jeans for them it would be curvy women and probably especially tall curvy women. And I'm not talking about fat or obese women, but big-bone strong women who wear a larger size than the average woman obviously and because of that have a harder time finding clothes that look good on them, but also fit. And perhaps jeans whether they're denim like in this case, or leather jeans which are less common (at least in America) are the hardest pants for attractive women to find for themselves that again look good and highlight their curves. Which is perhaps the main reason for tight jeans. For women to showcase their legs and butts and if you're an attractive well-built curvy woman, you're going to want good jeans. Jeans that fit and showcase your curves.  

Janet Man: Janet Jackson- What Have You Done For Me Lately- Live

"What have you done for me lately?" Another way of saying what have you done for me, period. Where have you been. It's one of those things that people say when someone who isn't very close with them suddenly appears out of nowhere and asks for help. And someone might say, "why should I even care and help you, where were you when I needed you, what have you done for me lately?" Janet Jackson is a very good communicator and app at using her music to communicate a broader message. Her 1989-90 album Rhythm Nation was about race relations in America and is a perfect example of that. This is not one of my favorite songs, but it's a great song in the sense that the message is clear. And is about someone perhaps in Janet's life who perhaps hasn't been there for her lately and perhaps that person was once close with her and what's she saying in this song about that person is essentially where have you been. And "What Have You Done For Me Lately" I believe is her way of delivering that message.

CBS Sports: NFL Football: The Most Overrated Undefeated NFL Team



The most overrated undefeated NFL team right now, is either the Atlanta Falcons or Houston Texans but since the Falcons. Haven't won a playoff game yet under Mike Smith, who for the most part I like, they are 0-3 in the playoffs under him. I'll give the edge to the Falcons, they have to win in the playoffs for me to take them seriously as an NFC contender.
