Not quite unbelievable, but strange. Have a look, loyal readers.
Creepy Future: If Aldous Huxley's Brave New World still haunts your dreams, there's a batch of fine lit out there that touches on the human race's potential for a problematic future. This is just a brief introduction, since there's no Philip K. Dick work referenced. How'd he get left out? (via Wired)
The New-New Journalism: Are there medicinal applications for ayahuasca? Maybe (maybe not). But a veteran journalist is dedicating a new venture to the exploration of that shamanistic brew and other fringe medicinal treatments. (via Poynter)
Baader Meinhof: There have got to be a few concept albums out there about terrorist groups. But here's the rundown on a work focused on left-wing 1970s German militants Baader Meinhof. It's bizarre that this exists in the first place, but the fact that someone wrote about it almost 20 years after its initial release is even odder. (via the Quietus)
