3. The Big Guy

We heard yesterday that Ken Kesey, ‘The Last American Hero’ has died after surgery to remove cancer from his liver. The operation was a success but The Chief’s heart gave out at 3:45am on Saturday morning and sadly he passed away.
Ken Kesey and The Merry Pranskters have been big role models to us at Pooterland and we would like to extend our condolences to his wife Faye, his daughters Shannon and Sunshine, his son Zane and his brother Chuck.
 
I can’t say that I knew Ken because I didn’t, but I was fortunate enough to meet him when he came over to England in 1999 on the Where’s Merlin? Tour and exchanged a few words and shook the big man’s hand at London’s Brixton Academy when myself and Dr.Sandoz ended up on stage with the Pranksters and Ken during the chaotic but truly magnificent encore at this event.
The best bit of the show for me was Ken’s narration of “Little Tricker the Squirrel Meets Big Double the Bear”, something we should all read.
 
Personally he has been a major influence to me and his loss will be a great one........

Farewell Chief

4. Pooterland's Featured Book

Labyrinth of Chaos - Brian Wallace
 
In this avant-garde, counter-culture novel, Alan Agrippa embarks upon a journey of Jungian individuation that encompasses both geographical and mental terrain.
As he travels through England, Scotland, and Ireland, he immerses himself in a broad range of philosophical challenges to develop an understanding of a world that, until then, is unknown to him. Together, you and he are propelled to explore some of the fundamental questions of existence: the nature of physics, mysticism, and the human mind.
During his travels, he encounters many remarkable people including a quantum scholar,
a compassionate Jesuit priest, and an alluring female purveyor of voodoo.
He meets, and falls in love with, Ronia Vintras, a French foreign exchange student.
Together, they set out for hedonistic pleasures and stimulating, fulfilling companionship.
In time, their journey becomes much more---a great mystic voyage.
Labyrinth of Chaos is a story of transcendence which challenges traditional notions of morality, politics, and love.
It celebrates the best of the individual human spirit: youthful idealism, romantic longings,
and the unbridled pursuit of genius.
