yes I said yes I will Yes.

It’s Bloomsday, nerds. I am sadly not in Dublin or even in NYC for a proper celebration, but I’ll drink up to Mr. Joyce today, re-read Molly Bloom’s soliloquy, and, uh, listen to some James Joyce some rap tributes.

And no, I never did read all of Ulysses.

    It’s on my to-read list–right after Moby-Dick, War and Peace, Gravity’s Rainbow, and Infinite Jest.

    That’s okay; Franz Ferdinand did a decent job of summarizing it for you.

    If every guy waited till he heard that, there’d be no more rape.

    Got to perform the final section of the soliloquy two months ago as part of a public reading series we did for a Ulysses-based class. There was a drum and shit. It was sexy. Also got to light off bottle rockets while reading the orgasmic beach masturbation scene…fun class.
    I will be drinking Irish whiskey and dorking out for the rest of the evening to celebrate!

    I did read it, but it was such a long time ago I don’t remember! Time to get it out and re-read it.
