Not super familiar with either, so I was going in fresh. Some of the ones I got wrong really surprised me. Actually, I think one of them will surprise a lot of people.

Certainly not all of it.

FWIW, I got 8 out of 10, and I never picked up Ulysees in my life.

http://www.amazon.com/The-New-Bloomsday-Book-Through/dp/0415138582

^^^You know it's rough-sledding when there's a 300-page book on how to read another book.

I sorta fell off with Kool Keith outside of guest appearances and a few cuts here & there after Ultramagnetic.

I think I owned Lost In Space for a minute but it fell out of my possession in the hazy college days fairly quickly, someone else bumped Dr Octagon enough that I didn't feel the need to buy it.

I don't recommend reading Joyce to anyone I actually like though, in fact I'm really not sure I can say I read every page to full efforts of comprehension.

Like some of the technical whaling excursion chapters in Moby Dick, there may have been a bit of skimming going on.

I see it on the top of every literary list for last century & it just feels like something pompous literature bores say is the best without actually arriving at the idea through their own non-invested reading pleasure.

Like the end of a particularly brutal cross-country race, I was pained & miserable much of the time I was actually doing it but I guess there's some feeling of accomplishment after the fact.

I can't imagine trying to read a book like that now while having to go to work every day & relax/have fun in the interim, just too much of a chore.

The most I'll do Joyce-related right now would probably be that annual Ulysses/Bloomsday pub crawl if by some stroke of magic/destiny I happened to be in Dublin with time to kill during the time of its happening.

I won't lie, I bumped the shit out of Dr. Octagon junior year of college. That album put me firmly in the "Kool Keith is the TRUTH!" camp. His highest point as a solo artist was probably 1998/99, with the Dr. Dooom/Lost in Space combo. I was with Keith until about the "Spankmaster" album. That was about 2001/2002. Dude just lacked quality control after that. I know the e-homie Adwhizz is a fan of work from that era.

I haven't gotten around to reading Moby Dick, mostly for this reason. Apparently it's one of the top five books ever written in the English language, but I'm not interested in the whaling excursion stuff.

And again, you just outlined just about every reason that I'm hesitant to pick anything up by him. I need to relax my mind after work and on weekends, not put it through an egg-beater.

Now, where's the James Joyce alias?

I think there's some really beautiful stuff in there that almost anyone with some patience could enjoy but it is buried in a lot of "jokes" only the most humorless school master could laugh at. And I think "laughing" means something different to them than it does to us.

If you really wanna read Moby Dick though you can honestly skip the whaling stuff. I imagine it's one of the easier books to abridge.

then I got out of school & realized that there's no way in hell I would do that to myself.

Perhaps if I live into retirement age but other than that I'll likely pass.

Never read Jouce or listened to Kool Keith.
