    Father, I Want to Kill You - Jim Morrisons Birthday

    With Jim Morrison being dead and all--and with the Doors reunited with some other dude on lead vocals--it makes perfect sense to have a Jim Morrison Birthday Bash on Dec. 8. Had he not died in a bathtub in Paris, Morrison would be turning 63 on this...
