A “meatier” Jim Morrison by Andrew Kent, 1969
 

“I felt like a tank, you know, I felt like a large mammal. A big beast. When I moved through the corridors, or across the lawn, I just feel like I could knock anybody out of my way, you know? I was SOLID, man! It’s terrible to be thin and wispy, because, you know, because you could get knocked over by a strong wind or something, man.”

An animated version of a 1969 interview Jim Morrison did with Howard Smith in Los Angeles. The Lizard King discusses his college diet, how he once weighed 185 lbs and proclaims oh so poetically that “fat is beautiful.”

Then he challenges Smith to arm wrestle!

Animation by Patrick Smith. This is pretty genius.
