Ken Kesey: Sailor Song
The post-catastrophe ex eco terrorist vs. the vengeful media tycoon prankster novel from the 90s, Kesey's third and just as gripping as the other two from the 60s.
Thomas Pynchon: Against the Day
Espers I, Espers – The Weed Tree, Espers II, Espers III (reissued after 12-15 years, just ordered the vinyls)
Good Omens (Gaiman/Pratchett, BBC Mini Series) – oh, already mentioned above…

And some more reading:
Neil Gaiman – World's End (Part of the Sandman cycle). A number of strangers from quite different worlds and origin are stranded in a tavern outside the maelstrom of time and tell the tales of their lives. Just the comic book to read these days.April 5, 2020 at 14:17 #37223Kid AParticipant
So, if weâ€™re talking comic books, Iâ€™d recommend the Library Editions of Hellboy. Some of the most beautiful comic books I read for years.
And if youâ€™re looking for some weird space opera like stuff, check out the Saga Comics by Brian K. Vaughn (adults only :twisted: )April 6, 2020 at 10:48 #37224pfnueselParticipant
I like Saga. More comics:
– My Favorite Thing Is Monsters
– The Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace and Babbage: The (Mostly) True Story of the First Computer (if you are nerdy enough)April 8, 2020 at 09:35 #37225ThorEgilParticipant
Isaac Asimovs The Naked Sun should be a very fitting read these days.
A murder mystery in a society where social distancing is the way of life. Everybody living in physical isolation and never meeting any other person in real life.April 8, 2020 at 14:28 #37226boomer former helmParticipant
Oh yes, Isaac Asimov is a good recommendation. Just finished the "Foundation-Trilogy" recently. I would also recommend T.C. Boyle's new collection of Stories "The Relive Box and Other Stories" with at least 3 stories somehow relating to the situation right now.April 9, 2020 at 12:52 #37227supernautParticipant
The News Room
3 seasons, 28ish episodes. By Aaron Sorkin. A news team determined to do the news, non biased, independentely, idealistic. Somewhat lofty writing with highly elaborated dialogues delivered by super quick witted people so it feels kind of unreal but that's a good thing. It makes for a grippingly dynamic watch. All happening in the good ol' days of around 2010 with lots of real world connections. Loved it, watched it about three times.April 9, 2020 at 23:51 #37228bionautParticipant
I fucken love the Sin After Sin recommendation. Priest is top of the list for me as long as we are talking about the first few records. The great thing about the SAS record is Simon Phillips' drumming. The best drummed metal album of all time. I saw them in NYC the summer of 1977 on that tour. The last time they played in silk stage costumes. Fucken excellent. Blackout in NYC that night. We got stoned and ran around in the dark after the show until we found an open record store and bought Sex Pistols 45's.
Anyhoo, my stay-inside recommendation is William Burroughs reading Masque of the Red Death…
Basil Rathbone might even be better.August 26, 2021 at 20:17 #37229punknotyetParticipant
Not sure, if this topic is still relevant, but in case it is – here is my ultimate Game recommendation: Psychonauts 2 (that was released just yesterday).
It's super awesome and it has a proper title for this forum .August 26, 2021 at 21:19 #37230supernautParticipant
yep, just started it. It's a good one.
also "Death's Door", an indie gem. Combines somewhat Dark Souls and vintage Zeldas. And you play as a crow. Doesn't get better than that.August 27, 2021 at 06:56 #37231punknotyetParticipant
>> also "Death's Door", an indie gem…
Bought it as well after watching a trailer (not played yet). Looks like Hyper Light Drifter (personal favorite of the genre), but with graphics from Miyazaki movies.August 27, 2021 at 20:07 #37232suntripperParticipant
Seems as good a place as any to stick this. Stuart Maconie will be playing a Motorpsycho track on Stuart Maconie's Freak Zone this Sunday at 20:00 (British Summer Time) on BBC Radio 6 Music.
Psychonauts might also be interested to learn that his featured album will be by Moondog.
I shall be listening in loneliness.August 29, 2021 at 21:59 #37233suntripperParticipant
The United Debased, in case anyone was wondering.
