Neal Kosaly-Meyer has finally reached the halfway point of his impossible and wonderful and funnaminal project, which is reading all of James Joyce's last (and, in my opinion, very unreadable) novel (Finnegans Wake) from memory. In this session, which should be experienced more as a musical than literary performance, Kosaly-Meyer channels the novel's ninth chapter, which, as he informed me, has my favorite line from the work: "It darkles, (tinct, tint) all this our funnaminal world" (fun/animal/phenomenal/fundamental). We also owe the name of the most basic stuff of matter, quarks, to Finnegans Wake: "Three quarks for Muster Mark." by Stranger Senior Staff Writer Charles Mudede
