A Meme after my own heart....

Your result for The Which DOORS song are you? Test...


10 shaman, 6 reveller, 6 exile, 11 nihilist and 0 other

"Once I had a little game ... I used to crawl back in my brain ...

I think you know the game I mean ... I mean the game called GO INSANE!"


You did not score a high prevalence of any one single variable, and your results don't fit into any of the other categories, so I'm going to have to give you the most basic and simple Doors song on the list. This is the very first track The Doors ever recorded, a goofy 1950s-style piano boogie of all things. Rudimentary, unprofessional, and naive ... a low quality recording of ear-grating amateur garage rock by a bunch of stoned kids, something that no self-respecting radio station would have ever played. And it's ABSOLUTELY FUCKING AWESOME!!! The Doors themselves liked it so much that they used it as part of their live epic "The Celebration of the Lizard" (the section called "A Little Game" is basically just a musically simplified version of Go Insane with the exact same lyrics). If you want to hear the completed original version, which is way cooler, check out The Doors Boxset. There has to be something in the world that's more awesome than amateur Garage Rock. I just can't think of what it could be.


If this score indicates anything about you, it suggests you are very stable and avoid excesses, which is the exact opposite of Jim Morrison's philosophy -- hence your lack of the four variables. Let's face it, Morrison was crazy. If he wasn't, do you think he could have given us all that awesome music? Don't get me wrong ... it's good to be in control of your life and to exercise moderation. But remember, even moderation is only good in moderation. The world itself often doesn't make sense, so approaching it from a purely logical position 100% of the time, with no variation whatsoever, is to invite disaster. You have to mix it up a little sometimes. Being crazy, to a certain point, makes a weird sort of sense. In certain circumstances it can even be a necessity. As Frank Zappa once said, "Without deviation from the norm, progress is not possible."

Jim Morrison was a big, big influence on my poetry when I was a teen, so this is sort of cool to me...Don't know how much of a nihilist I really am, although I'm in a rather Buddhist frame of mind currently, and that might be reflecting that...

BTW, here are the lyrics of Go Insane:

Today's official Swine Flu Count:

AZ 1,
CA 14,
IN 1,
KS 2,
MA 2,
MI 2,
NV 1,
NY 51,
OH 1,
TX 16 & 1 death.
Total 91

I believe we've seen headcounts of approximately 20, 40, 63, and now 91.  There are a lot, lot more probable cases than this, btw.  A probable case is one that tests as being a type A flu that doesn't show up on the screening they are using, and takes longer to verify (usually by sending to the CDC), or a person who has flu symptoms and has been exposed to someone who has the verified flu.

And of course, it's in more places than just the US and Mexico.   Diseases with this level of infectious ability spread fast in the day of air travel.
