  1. Cancelling my upcoming trip to Germany left me feeling pretty despondent, but remembering that Season 6 was forthcoming gave me something to look forward to. I’m glad that it is now underway, and also glad that I have an excuse to re-read one of my favorite Pynchon novels. Speaking of favorites: Alan brought up The Tunnel by William H. Gass, which is my favorite novel of all time. Just when I thought I was running out of post modern/avant- garde literature to read, I stumbled across The Tunnel and it turned out to be the book I was in search of the last 20 or so years. Anyways, thank you all for the time and effort that you put into the show. I know that I am not only speaking for myself (Lithuania please stand up) when I say that it means a lot to have something to look forward to in these arduous times. Stay paranoid. Take care.

  2. I’ll never get that hour and a half back, listening to a forum of people who haven’t read this great book. Pynchon is so much more that GR which was discussed more than V actually was. Colonialism is a huge theme in this book in all the places in the world that it takes you, including Malta. Some people might be able to explain entropy without looking it up, but I think they might be a little challenged geo-historically.

    1. Yeah…that was the first episode of a season. That’s how we do things here: a book per season. And you’re welcome to disagree with us and our insights, but there’s no need to imply any of are stupid.
