The End Which Doors Song are You?

And I wasted entirely too much time on other OkCupid tests,  I should have done this one first!




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

THE END

14 shaman,  8 reveller,  5 exile,  5 nihilist and  1 other
This is the end, beautiful friend. This is the end, my only friend ... the end

...


THE END is the exception to the four variables ... you cannot get this song by scoring high or low in any of these variables. You can only score THE END if you look beyond the four variables and see the true essence of The Doors.  And apparently you have.  Congratulations and kudos. You have achieved what most others could not.
...

For the rest of the songs, I've included brief write-ups to describe and/or explain each of them. However I'm not going to write anything about The End. It's sheer greatness would negate any attempt I made to define it. In fact I've long since come to the conclusion that The End is essentially undefinable.

MY SCORING SYSTEM ... OR A BRIEF EXPLANATION OF WHY ANY OF THIS SHOULD MAKE ANY SENSE WHATSOEVER

I based this test around four of the crucial elements underlying much of The Doors' music, and also what I perceive to be four distinct facets of Jim Morrison's personality. It's not a perfect system but I think there's a certain logic to it that we can apply here (if you have a better way of doing it, be my guest). These four variables are as follows ...

>>> The Shaman is a spiritual guru, the American Indian's "medicine man" who enters into a trance-like state and enacts a ritual to bring his audience to enlightenment. This is an essential quality of songs like "Break On Through To The Other Side" or any Doors song where mystic knowledge is sought after.

>>> The Reveller is a hedonist that alters his consciousness through physical ecstasy -- sex, alcohol, drugs, and so on -- seeking the Palace of Wisdom through the Road of Excess. This is an essential quality of songs like "Light My Fire" or any Doors song about passion and youthful exhuberance.

>>> The Exile is an outcast that has been alienated by his fellow man, an outsider condemned to a lonely and misunderstood existence. This is an essential quality of songs like "People Are Strange" or any Doors song dealing with alienation and rejection.

>>> The Nihilist is an existential cynic that sees Death as the only real Truth. He or she lives life for the moment and objects to laws, tradition, religion, or any other form of social control ... life is too short to worry about other people's rules. The Nihilist is the proverbial Rebel Without A Cause. This is an essential quality of songs like "When The Music's Over" or any Doors song based on discontent and fatalism.

Most Doors songs contain varying degrees of these four principles, although some songs are very strongly inclined towards one of the four. I didn't include every Doors song ever made in this test, but I did try to include most of their best songs, at least insofar as I could fit them into the framework of my crude scoring system. It's far from perfect, but I think it works in a weird sort of way. Hopefully Morrison isn't rolling over in his grave right now. I mean assuming he's actually in there to begin with.

Listening to the family statements on Odin Lloyd

I am so sorry for their loss and we should keep them in our prayers.  We all lost a good man and his murderer has been found guilty of 1st degree murder.

Holy Spirit please help find Apryl Foster, missing for four days

http://www.wtsp.com/story/news/local/2015/02/19/where-is-apryl-foster-search-continues-for-missing-woman/23718555/


Oh Holy Spirit please inspire the rescue and volunteer workers in finding Apryl Foster.  Her family came to Tampa last night from Texas for her prayer vigil.  She left a Ybor City restaurant/bar and hasn't been seen since.

I pray that she is found safe and sound, but more importantly for her family's peace that she is found soon.

Dear St. Anthony please help find this missing woman or any clues to her whereabouts.


God love you all!


-----------------------------

I have  confidence in the Holy Spirit's inspiration and assistance.  But, St. Anthony is the finder of lost articles and Ms. Foster's car is a missing clue as to her whereabouts.  He's in Heaven in the Beatific Vision and is outside of time,  meaning he has plenty of time to pray for us before the Throne of Almighty God.  Thanking St. Anthony and the Holy Spirit for favors before hand.  


UPDATE:  A few days ago Apryl's car and body were found.  A man checked his video survalliance and witnessed Apryl driving her car into the lake.   http://www.tampabay.com/news/publicsafety/accidents/video-suggests-brandon-womans-drowning-death-was-an-accident-friends-say/2218759  and  http://www.people.com/article/apryl-foster-missing-florida-woman-car-found-body-inside

Time Tested Beauty Tips

For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure,
share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair,
let a child run his or her fingers through it once a day.
For poise,
walk with the knowledge you'll never walk alone.
People,
even more than things,
have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed;
Never throw out anybody.
Remember, If you ever need a helping hand,
you'll find one at the end of your arm.
As you grow older,
you will discover that you have two hands,
one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.
The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears,
the figure that she carries,
or the way she combs her hair.
The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart,
the place where love resides.
The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole,
but true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul.
It is the caring that she lovingly gives,
the passion that she shows,
and the beauty of a woman with passing years only grows! --
-Sam Levenson
