So, how's it going?
Hmmmm. Have you tried switching up your diet?
Heard any good music around? (Couldn't have been mine.)
Read any good books lately? No?
Here. Try one of my books. Please? You could try to read my first one, Godlings, about four teenage mass-murderers on a road trip around Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Yeah. That was my first one. Four kids on a wicked homicidal sojourn, and one of them keeps a journal of the trip. I'll re-write it eventually, I think.
Or if you kinda hate organized religion like I do, maybe you should try The Autobiography of Jesus X. There's something for everyone in there, featuring a six-foot-tall red-haired and blue-eyed version of Jesus (named Yeshua Tzion) who smokes a lot of weed, fucks some bitches, and gets killed for saying a bunch of crazy shit. Also the entity known as God retells the story of the universe's creation. And it's, y'know, evolution. Because it was evolution. Also Yeshua tries to kill himself. After being saved, he's sent to 9/11. It's been called "mind-bending" and "long" by the few people who've ever read it.
But if long, science-fiction/fantasy (and/or suburban gothic) is your thing, you should definitely give Life Is A Temp Position a try. It's about an immortal man who doesn't know or care why he's immortal. But he finds out anyway, because of course he does. The plot demands it. The truth of why and how he's maintained his youthful appearance for 700 years scares the shit out of him, as it probably would any of us if we were in his shoes. Other than that, the book basically just makes fun of Greek mythological characters and blood libel conspiracies by showing them in a comedica and dramatic magical realism sort of way. And then make fun of them some more.
Thanks, in advance.
