Listener comments!

  9:09am stingy d:

hey its the units! i like the units!
hey jason, any interest in a live recording of an ocdj set from 5 years ago or so? same question for a dan deacon live set. they are both soundboard recordings. and i am the only person on this earth that has them. i was thinking for the fma. scott williams told me to elicit your thoughts.
  9:16am jason:

good morning mr. d -- yes, totally!
  9:19am stingy d:

ok i'll figure something out bring you copies. i should be over there volunteering on friday.
  9:29am hiptran:

That Units discography is genius. Check out their "Units Training Film" on archive.org. Totally great!
  9:32am Tom:

Slave Apartments show was awesome on Sat! A band I never thought I'd see again.
  9:35am Parq:

"Thomas Jefferson Slave Apartments" is my new favorite band name.
  9:44am Cecile:

They have been great for years and years, Parq. I hope they record again.
  9:45am Cecile:

And, whoo! I won a graffiti art book from the Billy Jam show! I'm excited.
  9:46am Tom J.:

Remember my solo hit,
Sneakin' Sally Through the Astoundingly Hyprocritical Alley?
  9:47am texas scott:

morning,Jason,and cecile and parq and tom and hiptrain and stingy d and all the lurkers...
  9:48am annie:

crap... you saw me.. i am lurking,, listening to ulysses in honour of bloomsday!
  9:48am Parq:

Way to go, 'Cile! I had to beg off that show, had too much Fri afternoon work to listen attentively.

And, is Foetus the former Scraping FOTW? There's a great little passage concerning Scraping on the first page of Roddy Doyle's "The Commitments".
  9:49am Cecile:

hola texas scott!
  9:49am Cecile:

Yes, Parq. He's Foetus over Frisco, too.
  9:50am Parq:

Dang, it *is* Bloomsday, isn't it! Got to see what's going on in the local environs.
  9:50am Cecile:

Yes, Jason, that was an awesome set.
  9:53am annie:

they used to do a reading in cooperstown. if i hear molly bloom's soliloquy i'm happy, but the middle bits are fantastic and very baudy!
  9:53am jeremy the listener:

yeah, really loving this show
  9:55am Cecile:

could you play some Kyuss?
  9:56am Ryan:

Rodeo would be classic.
  9:56am Cecile:

I have tried to read Ulyssess several times.
I should probably get some Ritalin and try again.
Or is there a Classics Illustrated version?

I envy you people who can read hard books.
(embarrassed former English major)
  9:59am annie:

i've only read ulysses once, enjoyed it very much. it's finnegan's wake that is difficult. (email cecile?)
  10:00am annie:

ok. you dragged me in, i am now 100 percent perticipating. morning jason!
  10:03am Cecile:

(i m lame, annie. I started moderating a FotC board...and am just a procrastinating doof)
  10:05am annie:

all good. just want to know if the file got delivered.. take your time.. you are not lame..
  10:05am Bad Ronald:

Hi all.

You can hear Joyce reading himself here:
  10:06am hiptran:

Beer on the curb for Negative Trend's Will Shatter.
  10:10am annie:

BR- is that finnegan's wake?
  10:12am dc pat:

wait--I'm missing a Joyce discussion???
  10:13am annie:

kinda joyced started pat. today is bloomsday
  10:14am Bad Ronald:

I believe so...
  10:16am annie:

sounded like it. i heard "olivia".. i would love to play joycean scrabble someday; if you can put the word you make up in a sentence and have it make sense, then it's ok..
  10:19am stingy d:

this sounds like my friend ed
  10:20am stingy d:

  10:21am Parq:

Honestly, 'Cile, the best way to get through Ulys is just plough ahead, gloss over the parts you're not getting and keep going. And it's a commitment; if you aren't willing to spend a month with it, no dice. Finnegan, I've never gotten past the first couple of pages.
  10:22am Cecile:

I'll have to try it again, Parq.
  10:24am annie:

the problem i had with ulysses was the greek bits.. parq's right cecile, just move past the parts that baffle you. the overall gist will remain. finnegan is tough. i have many recordings of that in pieces. just love the rhythm of his writing. and the puns!! OMG!
  10:26am dc pat:

damn, forgot about Bloomsday..been too busy. If you're going to read Ulysses, get the Joyce-approved guide. It makes it a lot more fun. Can't remember the author right now...
  10:28am dc pat:

This one: James Joyce's Ulysses by Stuart Gilbert
  10:29am dc pat:

Finnegan's Wake is rough--friend of mine named his book store Riverrun -- first word in the Wake.
  10:31am G:

Joyce really oversaw the Gilbert, first publsihed in 1930.

I can't get the linked-to mp3 to play, but he only made a couple of short recordings -- one a speech about the ancient Israelites from episode 7 of Ulysses, and one a conversation about nighfall that's at the end of book 1 chapter 8 of FW.
  10:33am Bad Ronald:

I believe it's the latter...
  10:38am G:

If it has wording like "Tell me, tell me, tell me, elm. Tell me tale of stem and stone etc." That's the end of FW 1.8. It's the conversation of two washerwomen on opposite banks of the River Liffey gossiping (beating out the dirt), and then turning into trees on the banks as night falls. It's a dream!
  10:39am annie:

G- shear poetry!!
  10:41am still b/p:

Maybe Kenny G. can read a generous portion of Ulysses to us tomorrow. The tax code reading was just an appetizer.
  10:44am annie:

see. i was disappointed it fell on a tuesday.. wednesday would have been a great marathon reading day, with ken doing mix-ups and kenny reading real passages.
  10:46am Carmichael:

Good morning Jason, and fellow Bloomsday listeners. Cecile, the best way to read Ulysses is to read ABOUT it first. It's a stunning piece of work that operates on many levels at once. Every chapter is a parody of/tribute to a specific cultural prose style, so it swings wildly.

Kenny may indeed read some tomorrow, but only if he's dressed like Cardinal Richelieu.
  10:48am annie:

anthony burgess's book joysprick is a great way to start!
  10:52am annie:

about ten years ago i was involved with a poet. and he loved joyce as much as i did. a doomed relationship, but what joy to listen and read to each other the poetic genius of joyce.
  10:54am Bad Ronald:

Yup G -
"Well, you know or don't you kennet or haven't I told you every telling has a taling and that's the he and the she of it. Look, look, the dusk is growing!"
  10:55am G:

Yes, most of the people who were wowed by U. in the 20s had trouble accepting Work in Progress (he kept the title secret till publication). He recorded that bit because, as he said, if out of all of WiP the end of 1.8 is no good, then I don't know anything about language.

Loving the show btw -- just tossing in what I know on one of the day's comments topics...
  10:57am annie:

BR-swoon! yes jason, i am, too, loving the show. today is magical, for sure.
  10:58am kinch:

Joyce's letters to Nora--now that is the real dirty stuff
  11:00am Carmichael:

I always recommend a reader begin with Dubliners, then Portrait of the Artist, before diving into Ulysses. And after that, if your brain and tongue are not knotted, then venture into the pre-Kerouac stream of consciousness Finnigan's Wake.
  11:02am G:

True, Kinch. Nora burned her side of the correspondence, and Joyce's grandson is still totally pissed those got published back in the 70s. But for a writer like Joyce who includes so much of his own experience, including sexual stuff, in his work, they are important context for the writing. The grandson should blame Joyce for using so much intimate autobiographical content in his published work. As Joyce's brother said, your work is like a confession given in a foreign tongue (words to that effect).
  11:02am annie:

funny, i've never read them, kinch!! i've read some of leonard cohen's poems ... he is one weird dude. listening to finnegan's wake might be easier than reading it; depends on how your brain processes language.
  11:04am Parq:

God, I'm finally back. You guys wouldn't believe what I have to go through to get my work puter started each AM.

@DC pat 10:29, used to be a bar in TriBeCa called Riverrun. Also, in June '82, I moved into an apt with a bar called Finnegan's Wake across the street. On June 16, I went in there -- nothing. I mentioned Bloomsday to the bartender, and he looked at me blankly. Yarrgh.
  11:06am G:

The letters he's referring to are in _Selected Letters_, year 1909
  11:09am Carmichael:

Completely by coincidence, I re-read Joyce's biography about a month ago. Can't remember the author at the moment, but it was very complete and candid.

I'm currently reading Josef Conrad's "Sea Stories", and can't wait to get back to Nostromo.
  11:11am G:

There are several bios. The classic is by Ellmann, original 1959, revised 1982. It set the standard ever since for literary biography.
  11:13am stingy d:

there's a ping pong table at the bell house!!! I WILL DOMINATE!!!
  11:15am Carmichael:

Yes, Ellmann! Brown cover, with a photo of serious Joyce under straw boater. Thanks G.
  11:17am Parq:

Jason, is EJdM pleased or annoyed that all this literary chat is going on during their set?
  11:17am G:

Yes, that's the 82 version, still current. Ellmann died a good 20 years ago. His bio of Wilde is worthwhile too.
  11:18am G:

Work time for the likes of me. No garden to muck about in.
  11:19am Jason:

Good question Parq, we'll find out!
  11:20am Ryan:

Work is much more pleasant with this delicious music playing, I must say many thanks to you El Jesus de Magico.
  11:20am stingy de magico:

james joyce? fuck that shit! maurice sendak!
  11:21am Carmichael:

Jason, present it as if they're inspiring our artistic endeavors ...
  11:23am Cecile:

Stingy, you have a way with words. Rock on.
  11:25am Cecile:

Also, why do so many cool, weird bands come from Ohio? Is it the water? Burning tire fumes? Nothing to do? Anyway, Ohioans, keep doing what you're doing!
  11:27am jason:

maybe im making this up, but is Ohio the 2nd most populated state (2nd to NJ)...?
  11:28am stingy d:

yea cecile i'ma regular james joyce over here. and don't worry i'ma do the damn thing.
  11:28am still b/p:

Litkill: Ahhh, is it the fine, fine transcendent writing ye're likin'? See if it's not impossible to squelch the mock-mimic impulse after this...prose selection (scroll page down) gurgles 'round a minute in yer brain-grasp:
  11:38am Cecile:

@stingy: Yeah, man.
  11:43am doug from dc:

I was checking out a pile of 7" recs that came into a friend's store this weekend, and found Maurice Sendak on Scholastic Records. Musical versions of Pierre and Chicken Soup with Rice.
  11:44am Cecile:

Was that the Carole King music?
  11:45am doug from dc:

Yeah, she wasn't credited, but I'm pretty certain that's the one.
  11:48am Cecile:

I love this GBV song.
  11:50am annie:

great show today jason, glad i tuned in...
  11:51am jason:

thanks for tunin in everyone, and big thanks to El Jesus de Magico for stoppin by! They have some rare rekkids for sale via their myspace
  11:53am Cecile:
