What could be a more perfect role for reclusive writer Thomas Pynchon than playing himself, complete with a paperbag over his head, on "The Simpsons"? (item stolen from a blog on my referrer logs that I somehow can't find again; thanks, whoever you are.)
It seems, somehow, disingenuous of Pynchon.
And yet, if I were offered the chance to play myself on "The Simpsons," whoo-ee. Just ask me. Playing opposite Homer is a sure mark of über-success.
The Swedish phrase for the day is Gravitationens Regnbåge, which means, of course, Gravity's Rainbow.
