So I stood at the station with a plan and a pocket of poems.
"He had a theory that musicians are incredibly complex, and know far less than other artists what they want and what they are; that they puzzle themselves as well as their friends; that their psychology is a modern development, and has not yet been understood." – E. M. Forster

Pynchon on The Simpsons

Tonight is the season premiere of The Simpsons — normally I wouldn’t pay special attention to it, but in this episode, novelist Thomas Pynchon makes a guest appearance. We get to hear his voice. His on-screen face, on the other hand, will be covered by a paper bag.

This is the kind of thing where I can’t help but think of the late professor Brian Stonehill, a Pynchon scholar and media studies advocate, and wish he were still around to witness this. I hope he can watch and be amused by the episode, wherever he is.
