“The flamboyant singer of ‘The Doors,’ the beautiful California boy, had become an inert lump crumpled in the toilet of a nightclub.” Sam Bernett, whose French-language book is called “The End: Jim Morrison,” says he believes two drug dealers brought Morrison’s body back to his apartment. The official story goes like this: On the last night of Jim Morrison’s life, the rocker went to a movie in Paris, listened to records, fell ill and died of heart failure in his bathtub at the age of 27. Regardless on how he died, it sounds like it might be a good book to read. More on the story

troika call for entries

Hopefully its not to late to become immortal. Troika is compiling and writing the first book on technology infused art, design and architecture. The book will flag a new generation of interaction designers, designers, artists and architects that are exploring new and creative uses for digital technology, being on a social, conceptual or aesthetic level.

“We are looking for projects where a non-linear train of thought is apparent in the end result, where technology is re-invested with subjectivity and play, art projects for mass production, products that trigger thoughts as a book or a film can do.”

The book will be published and distributed world-wide by Thames and Hudson.

It will feature over 100 protagonists over 304 pages, and will include interviews by leading critics, designers and artists, such as Ron Arad, Anthony Dunne, and Machiko Kusahara.
