Jim and Pam larger Themis photo

A nice version of the Themis photo shoot. It’s a clearer and larger. Too bad they cut Tere Tereba out of the photo. I would love to see this version with Tere in it. It’s beautiful either way and was posted by this Instagram account:

Laurel Canyon home “Love Street” images from the original house circa 1980’s

zzzzLove_Street_House-vi

Photos of Jim and Pam’s first home located in Laurel Canyon, Los Angeles have been published recently. This is a big deal as we never see a good quality picture of the “Love Street” home before they began rebuilding it in the 90’s. The only picture of the house from that time that has been in circulating Doors fan pages was of poor quality and very small.

This is the original house just as it was before it was touched, rebuild, refurnished and resold many times. These are all the original wood, windows, nails, screws and structure of the home. Over the years the house was left to rot. No one lived in it after Jim and Pam moved to the Norton Avenue place in 1970. I don’t know the reason why Jim and Pam up and left Laurel Canyon. Could very well be because of the Sharon Tate Manson murders. A lot of celebrities ran from their homes when Sharon and her friends were found murdered in her home. It escalated when the Labianca’s bodies were discovered the next night.

Morrison fans had stolen parts of the home. From wood planks to pieces from their stove. There have been plenty of renovations to the home as last year the house burnt down and was rebuilt. For me the original home Jim and Pam lived in is gone. It was gone the moment they added new wood, floors, walls and a bell to the upper part of the house. It never had a bell when Jim and Pam lived there. Today the house no longer has wood. It’s now made entirely of cement and that bell was added in again.

The images were all added by http://bandaidpennylane.tumblr.com including these http://bandaidpennylane.tumblr.com/post/117189170131/a-good-quality-of-the-original-house-jim-and-pam but that person found the nice quality original home photos from http://www.rockandrollroadmap.com/places/homes-of-rock-and-roll-stars/los-angeles-area/laurel-canyon

Oliver Stones ‘The Doors’ Meg as Pam

I have not seen The Doors by Oliver Stone in over 15 years. It was nice to see all these screen caps uploaded onto Tumblr today. It brought back some fond memories of first seeing the movie with a several close friends of mine and me walking out of the theater in a daze. I also fell madly in love with Val Kilmer. That face. That body. The way he spoke. The way he sang. The way he performed like Jim Morrison…

I was in love!

Of course the movie was controversial within The Doors community. Oliver Stone took the liberty of changing history and creating several scenes in the film that never happened in real life. Low grade Acid? Never existed. Ray’s hippie wedding to Dorothy in the beach? Didn’t happen that way. Pam meeting Patricia Kennealy for the first time at a Thanksgiving dinner,  where Pamela proceeded to ask Jim “did you put your dick inside this woman?” Never happened. But despite all the historical errors, wrong dates and horrible wigs, the film was good. Val’s incredible performance was Oscar worthy. The film introduced a new generation to the music of The Doors.

I feel like watching the movie now. I think I will Netflix it tonight…

So, here are some screen caps posted by Bandaidpennylane on Tumblr!
