He frequently appears on talk shows to debate his philosophy, but only if he can telecommute and by having his image broadcast into the studio on a TV next to the other participants. Protagonist Max goes to Professor O'Blivion's base of operations at the "Cathode Ray Mission" in order to interview him personally, but discovers that [[spoiler: Professor O'Blivion was murdered and his daughter, Bianca O'Blivion, has been using an archive of thousands of her father's pre-recorded tapes to fake his continued appearances on television.]]

* BlackAndGreyMorality: Barry Convex may be a clear bad guy, but Bianca O'Blivion is no saint either. She uses Max just as Barry did, and the only difference is that she shows a ''little'' remorse [[spoiler: but still uses him to kill her enemies and drive Max to suicide.]]

* PunnyName: Brian O'Blivion? Barry Convex? Is this a comedy? '''No.''' Possibly a ShoutOut to ThomasPynchon. {{Justified}} in the first instance because Brian O'Blivion has explicitly renamed himself.
