Moe's on Telegraph Ave. ATD geekfest

All you really need to know is that pynchonoid, that's right,
won the Pynchon triva contest, just barely edging out
fellow traveler Tim Ware, and the two of us left with
the trivia contest prizes, a copy of Against the Day
each. Then we fucked their girlfriends and stole
their lunch money and blew that pop stand, into the
Berkeley night.

Favorite attendee: the woman with the conceptual V.

Silliest sight: 4, count 'em, 4 Pynchon lookalikes
with paper bags on their heads a la TRP's The Simpsons

Biggest surprise: very few people, outside of
Pynchon-l, know that TRP niece, Tristan Taormino is
known for her movie about anal sex.
