This may be very cool - the BBC is doing a Bloomsday-spanning radio adaptation of "Ulysses", which will be transmitted in "real time" this Saturday on Radio 4 in a number of programmes between 0915 and 2300. It's often said that this is a book that needs to be read aloud.

+Colm Buckley et al may find this of interest..

Another excellent Condescending Wonka. Not mine, mind.

Condescending Wonka is my new favourite meme template. This one isn't mine, but it's a good sample of the genre..

I guess everyone else has seen this, but I hadn't - President Obama sitting on the very bus Rosa Parks made famous.

With enormous apologies to the triathletes I know. I love you all dearly, but damn, this meme just couldn't be left unmade.

Something of a zing on the subject of Mark Zuckerberg's performance at the one pre-IPO roadshow he turned up to: "Trying to look like you're being like Steve Jobs in terms of haberdashery before you've proven to public shareholders that you are Steve Jobs in terms of performance is just a bit forward."

When I have time, I'd like to take two weeks for a road trip across the USA and back again, deliberately avoiding the places British people go on holiday (San Francisco, Vegas, LA, Boston, New York, Florida, etc) and instead planning a route that concentrates on the places visitors don't generally go (and some of the places most Americans have never been to, for that matter).

This is not out of some kind of "look how cool I am for being non-mainstream" thing, it's because it always seems terribly unfair to me how many Europeans view the US one-dimensionally ("places we go on holiday are nice, everywhere else is full of gun-waving fundamentalists"). It'd be nice to go beyond the stereotypes.
