Starting on the first of September, we will have a new RPG thread based on the fourth episode of Ulysses. For those of you new to the episode, below is a summary and a list of resources:
The fourth episode of Ulysses starts over again. This time, instead of Stephen Dedalus, we meet Mr Leopold Bloom, and we meet him as he prepares breakfast. He converses with a cat and gives her milk. He offers breakfast to his wife, Molly, who is still in bed. Bloom heads for the butcher’s shop, where he buys the last pork kidney. He glances at a letter from his daughter, Milly, and gives his wife a letter from Blazes Boylan. Following a conversation with his wife, Bloom repairs to the lavatory where he reads a story from Titbits. After he finishes, a ringing bell reminds him of Dignam’s funeral, scheduled for that day.

Think you can make a better animated GIF for Bloomsday using Photoshop, Blingee, or another tool? Post it to Twitter with the hashtag #OpeningUlyssesGIF. (Twitter itself won’t let you post animated GIFs directly, so you’ll have to upload it somewhere else such as tinypic first and then paste the link into Twitter.) The most retweeted image will get a flashy blog bling award and all the fame Opening Ulysses has to offer.
