Did page 404 make anyone else think of Gravity's Rainbow? DeLillo talks about "Bombheads" but says they don't walk around with "megadeath hardons", and are not all pro-bomb. I think the term "megadeath hardon" sort of sums of Gravity's Rainbow.
I also am interested in how DeLillo deals with one of Gravity's Rainbow's favorite themes, paranoia. I am thinking about how Matt gets paranoid when he gets high. I feel that scene is part of DeLillo's commentary on paranoia and how so much of our terror is self-imposed. It seems degraded when Matt's fears are caused by drugs. It seems very silly.
