Happy Bloomsday! For those of you who aren't steeped in knowledge of the canon of James Joyce, Bloomsday is a holiday celebrated annually on June 16 that honors both Joyce and his epic novel, Ulysses. To celebrate this year's event, a few people have decided to re-create the book's epic tenth chapter, "Wandering Rocks," via Twitter. We respect Joyce, but we have to admit that reading his prose 140 characters at a time is only slightly less annoying than Courtney Love's tweets. [Ian Bogost]
