OD'ing on Insanity

I almost can't take it anymore. I can't deal with reading about, listening to, or watching creative geniuses or just average Joes who go daffy. Besides reading Brian Wilson's autobiography, in the past week, I've seen or read the following movies or articles or shows about unhinged characters: Tarnation (twice) about the director's insane mother, The Devil and Daniel Johnston about another schizophrenic, Jack Pierson's exhibit Melancholia Passing into Madness, and the New Yorker article on Werner Herzog's unorthodox film sets. I know that sane people are wildly boring, but I'm really OD'ing on the always interesting insane set.
