October is Thrilling Because it is Spooky and Inspiring

Just watched the Roky Erikson documentary, "You're Gonna Miss Me". I have to post this video, which was shot during one of  his many stays in the mental hospital.

He was a genius, through and through. He had an odd childhood, forced electroshock and over 300 acid trips. That is where this poem comes from. It's more than 7 minutes long but it will give you chills, I promise.

These are images from needlepoint/group therapy sessions at Hammer Museum in LA. Images are culled from Josh Greene's blog.
