(UPDATED VERSION HERE: http://youtu.be/nxId5Zftchs)

The audio (recorded in 1929) is of James Joyce reading the Anna Livia Plurabelle section of Finnegans Wake. It's a chattering dialogue between two washer women who as night falls become a tree and a stone.
(pages 213-216, or the last few pages of part 1)

The same audio is on youtube already but it doesn't have subtitles so i figured it would make more sense to have a version with the words included since you're missing half the story if you listen to the audio just by itself.....

(although, being finnegans wake it still might not make sense even with the subtitles but it definitely makes more sense than subtitles youtube comes up with: click on the cc button in the bottom right to see them)

...and i threw in some animation while i was at it, just in time for all you Joyce fans on Blooms Day 2011 this week, enjoy!
