The Doors’ John Densmore Presents “Window Of Opportunity” Film Screening Fundraiser for Bernie Sanders


https://secure.berniesanders.com/page/contribute/egyptian

Date: October 28, 2015
Place: The Egyptian Theater, 6712 Hollywood Boulevard
Hollywood, CA 90028.

Time: 7:30 p.m.
Tickets: $15

Details: Musician, activist, and New York Times best-selling author of Riders On The Storm and The Doors: Unhinged, John Densmore, will be hosting an exclusive, one-night only screening of the film "Window Of Opportunity" at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood to support Bernie Sanders for President. All proceeds from ticket sales will go directly to Bernie Sanders for President.

The film, written and directed by Sam Joseph, and produced by John Densmore, is a suspenseful dark comedy thriller about greed and the corporate world. While the story is fiction, the themes of the film support Bernie's beliefs about corporate corruption in America and returning power to the people. This fundraising event is the only currently-scheduled screening of the film in Los Angeles, and will include an introduction by John Densmore.

Join John Densmore and likeminded individuals for a fun night out at the movies to support the next POTUS!

this is what it feels to me........................




"The Wasp (Texas Radio And The Big Beat)"

I wanna tell you 'bout Texas Radio and the Big Beat
Comes out of the Virginia swamps
Cool and slow with plenty of precision
With a back beat narrow and hard to master

Some call it heavenly in it's brilliance
Others, mean and rueful of the Western dream
I love the friends I have gathered together on this thin raft
We have constructed pyramids in honor of our escaping
This is the land where the Pharaoh died

The Negroes in the forest brightly feathered
They are saying, "Forget the night.
Live with us in forests of azure.
Out here on the perimeter there are no stars
Out here we is stoned - immaculate."

Listen to this, and I'll tell you 'bout the heartache
I'll tell you 'bout the heartache and the lose of God
I'll tell you 'bout the hopeless night
The meager food for souls forgot
I'll tell you 'bout the maiden with wrought iron soul

I'll tell you this
No eternal reward will forgive us now for wasting the dawn

I'll tell you 'bout Texas Radio and the Big Beat
Soft drivin', slow and mad, like some new language

Now, listen to this, and I'll tell you 'bout the Texas
I'll tell you 'bout the Texas Radio
I'll tell you 'bout the hopeless night
Wandering the Western dream
Tell you 'bout the maiden with wrought iron soul

Oddly enough, this *is* one of the definitions of "barnstorm": Make a rapid tour of (an area), typically as part of a political campaign.

So.... BERNstorming!
