Today is Bloomsday, and you have got to hear this recording of James Joyce.
You can listen to it here at BoingBoing.
It's remarkable, but this is not how I thought his voice would sound.
I don't even know if I gave it much thought, but I agree with the comments where people said it will change how they hear the cadence of the words as they read his works.
Go grab a copy of Dubliners or Finnegan's Wake, get a Guinness, and enjoy the day.
