Ok so recommend one of each which you think are either classics that don't get the credit they deserve or just slightly weird/obscure good stuff that maybe people won't have heard of. I'll start..

Book : The Dice Man (Luke Reinhart) (Very funny book (claimed to be true) about a man who makes his every decision in life on the roll of a dice with some very strange options!)

Film : The Acid House (a very strange,twisted, funny film based on three short stories by Irvine Walsh)

Album : The Cinematic Orchestra - Everyday (Orchestrated Drum & Bass, Amazing)

What's this bit for again?

I find that critics really underate comedies that are not completely serious and suttle making them more dramas with moments of comedy in them. I think a lot of comedy movies are ignored by a lot of people because they are not epic memorable oscar winning hits, rather than think of the actual entertainment it provides.

That's true, but the reason that those "dramas with moments of comedy" movies win awards is because they work on a bunch of different levels, and are more than just a series of fart jokes, you know? Like Little Miss Sunshine, for example. I agree with you for the most part though--like Dumb and Dumber. It may not be an epic masterpiece but it's one of the funniest movies ever made.

I'll approach this in terms of general recommendations, rather than what I actually think to be best.

Book: Catch-22, by Joseph Heller (The book that made me start writing.)
Film: Dr. Strangelove (Or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb)
Album: Blonde on Blonde, by Bob Dylan (Okay, so that one actually IS the best...)

Book : Stranger in a Strange Land (if you haven't read this, please do. It will change the way you look at the world.)

Film : Resevoir Dogs

Album : Phish - Lawn Boy (I played this casette until the wheels fell off)

EDIT: @this weird chicken fella above - Catch22 is ****ing amazing. Everybody read that too.
@ this weird chicken fella below - Right back at you and I fully agree. Live is the way go.

I love you, man. (Though, like all the early Phish albums, every song was appx. two million times better live.)

Book: I really can't remember the last time I read a book the whole way through at my own will.
Movie: Terminator 2 (The part where The Terminator cuts the flesh of his arm is good for scaring small children)
Album: The Beatles (White Album) by The Beatles (Revolution 9 is good for scaring small children)

What I meant is that critics an a lot of people will not consider movies like dumb and dumber but will infinitely praise little miss sunshine. It may be a good movie, but it doesnt mean other really entertaining movies like your metascore of 39 there were some good scores though. but it is extremely underrated

Firkraag

Film: Starship Troopers
Book: The Zombie Survival Guide
Album: Dream Theater - Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence

There he goes, Firkraag. One of God's own prototypes. A high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die. - My VGscore

MoogleMuffins

Book: Salem's Lot by Stephen King (One of the greatest horror writers ever)
Film: Deliverance (Boy you got a purty mouth)
Album: Don Mclean (Can't remember what the album is)

I'm a Paul Heyman guy.

Film: Night of the Living Dead (1990) (I love the orginal, but this remake is actually better!)
Book: Robert E Howard's Conan the Barbarian stories (way more exciting and violent than the Tolkien stuff and even pre-dates it)

EXPERIENCE MORE.... Arcade-quality graphics, awesome sound, "turbo-charged" game play, exciting TurboChip games... It's the incredible Turbo Genesis 64 Entertainment SuperSystem Experience. There's more fun, more challenge, and more excitment ready for you today!
