WELCOME ABOARD!

Welcome aboard, g, it's a fabulous or-gy
That you just dropped in on, my friend—
We can't recall just how it got start-ed
But there's only one way it can end!
The behavior is bestial, hardly Marie-Celestial,
But you'll fit right in with the crowd,
If you jettison all of those prob-lems,
And keep it hysterically loud!

There are mo-thers with their lo-vers,
Stealing rot-ters, from their daught-ers,
Big erec-tions, predelic-tions
That you wouldn't believe,
So put your brain on your sleeve,
and come a-board the Titanic, things'll really be manic,
Folks'll panic the second that sunken iceberg is knocked,
Naughty 'n' noisy, and very Walpurgisnacht,
That's how the party will end,
So—welcome aboard, welcome aboard, my friend!

—Thomas Pynchon, Gravity's Rainbow heartily recommended

... continuing the welcome as I see Clarissa & Paul Dorell are new joiners ...

(What is (or isn't) going on over to WLF anyway? nevermind don't wanna know ...)

(but curiosity got the better of me: savour the irony)

Jeffry: your mention of Geoffrey Hill already suggests that you'll like it here. Welcome! Oh, and what's your take on Underworld? It's one of the more divisive books 'round these parts.
Glad to hear it. Underworld is actually one of a few DeLillo novels I haven't tackled yet. I'm currently finishing up Mao II and then I think I'll be spending the rest of the summer wrestling with the aforementioned mammoth.
I see someone held in some esteem holds some esteem for Underworld
