A Lost Interview With Jim Morrison, Animated

In 1969 in Los Angeles, Howard Smith of the Village Voice interviewed Jim Morrison of the Doors, who expounded upon, among other things, why it made him really happy to be fat back when he was in college and eating lots of starchy food at the cafeteria every day.

Thanks to the great new PBS web series Blank on Blank, that portion of the interview has been made available for the first time, complete with animation by Patrick Smith. Enjoy.
