We dont understand what hes talking about. But are we talking about James Joyce, or Gerry Fialka? At the latters film workshop Dream Awake: How James Joyce Invented Experimental Cinema & Disguised It as a Book, many things are talked about. Fialka, a sort of mad wizard of weird movies, hurls dubious, impenetrable, and delightful suggestions such as How and why did Joyce anticipate the Facebook-Google-Wiki-Twitter-YouTube-Blogosphere swirl (social networking), TMZ, Girl Talk, and whatever comes after the Internet? Somewhat obviously, the book spotlighted here is Finnegans Wake, (and Marshall McLuhan's Menippean Satirized translation of it) FW, if you think about it, gives everyone permission to do everything, which may have resulted in the Internet and whatever comes after it. This insanity is part of Litquake and SF Cinematheque.
