James Joyce video and other Joyce bits


Bloomsday was June 16, and various interesting things were posted or sent to me.

Above is a new short video by Bobby Campbell, "Walking Into Eternity," an animation of an excerpt from Joyce's Ulysses. If you want to see the passage Bobby is quoting, go here and search for the word "ineluctable." You are looking for the phrase, "Ineluctable modality of the visible:"

Here is the link to the dramatization of Ulysses by Ireland's national public radio station.

IMHO the music is too loud and somewhat drowns out the words. Id drop the volume about 10 -15%.

I agree! I think the sound mix of the waves is a bit off too, it sometimes sounds more like static than waves. I'm sure I'll get around to playing around with it again at some point. The original animation is from 2011 and has gone through several different iterations. Thanks for the feedback!
