COFFEE WITH DOUG Directed by Bill Jackson
December 8, 2018
Doug stops in a quiet, comfy little coffee house to have a big, stiff brew spiked with a shot, and proofread some poetry. A compulsive, nervous kinda guy named Buddy enters and after staring for a while, believes he has found Jim Morrison. Doug denies it; Buddy insists. Eventually, Buddy is so sure, despite the fact that Morrison died in Paris in 1971, that he goes off the rails as he did when he was a young Doors fanatic. In sympathy, confession, or just wanting the guy off off his back, Doug tells him why Morrison died.
NUT RING Director TBA
