>> [Blank on Blank intro]
>> [Music: The Doors "Soul Kitchen"]
>> Jim Morrison: Are you hungry?
>> Howard Smith: Why do you ask that?
>> Jim Morrison: Well, maybe we could order out for some sandwiches or something.
Chicken delight or something.
>> [Music: "Soul Kitchen" continues]
>> Jim Morrison: You're not hungry? How about you: are you hungry?
Oh, it's lunchtime. Did you have breakfast this morning?
>> Howard Smith: Yeah.
>> Jim Morrison: You did. What'd you have?
>> Howard Smith: Oh, little things like chocolate cake and tea here.
>> Jim Morrison: Is that all you had?
>> Howard Smith: That's all I want.
>> Jim Morrison: You should eat more, Howard.
>> Howard Smith: You put on a lot of weight. Are you eating a lot?
>> Jim Morrison: Well, um... You know that's something that really bothers me.
What's wrong with being fat? That's what I want to know. Why is there such...
>> Howard Smith: I didn't say there's anything wrong with it.
>> Jim Morrison: Why is it so onerous to be fat?
Um...
I don't see anything wrong with fat.
You know? I mean, I remember when I used to weigh
185 pounds, and I'm the same height.
I was the same height that I am now and I weighed 185 pounds
and I was going to college. And I had this food ticket at the cafeteria.
And the cafeteria food is mainly all based on starch.
You know it's cheap food, right?
And so I don't know what it was, but in order... I don't know, I just felt like
I was...
If you missed your meal you just, you know... I just figured: "Well I was getting screwed,
right?" If I missed a meal I blew it.
[Music: The Doors "Who Do You Love"]
So I'd get up at 6:30 every morning just to make breakfast, right?
Eggs and grits and sausages and toast
and milk.
Then I'd go do a few classes.
And I'd make it in there for lunch.
>> [Music: "Who Do You Love" continues]
>> Jim Morrison: Mashed potatoes.
Every now and then they'd put a little piece of meat in something, you know?
Then I'd go to a few more classes. And then I'd go to dinner and it was more mashed
potatoes.
>> [Music: "Who Do You Love" continues]
>> Jim Morrison: And so about three months later I was 185 pounds.
And you know what? I felt so great.
I felt like a tank, you know.
I felt like a large mammal. A big beast.
When I'd move 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,
you could get knocked over by a strong wind or something.
Fat is beautiful.
[Music: "Who Do You Love" continues]
>> Howard Smith: How much do you weigh now?
>> Jim Morrison: I don't know to tell you the truth. I'd guess somewhere in the neighborhood
of about 150.
>> Howard Smith: Really?
>> Jim Morrison: You want to compare biceps? (Laughs)
You want a dead arm wrestling match, Howard? Are you ready? Are you in shape?
>> Howard Smith: All right. Yeah.
>> Jim Morrison: We'll wait until the interview's over.
>> Howard Smith: (Laughs)
