58 Birthdays James Joyce Matt Leahy

58: February 2.

Mr Leopold Bloom ate with relish the inner organs of beasts and fowls. He liked thick giblet soup, nutty gizzards, a stuffed roast heart, liverslices fried with crustcrumbs, fried hencods’ roes. Most of all he liked grilled mutton kidneys which gave to his palate a fine tang of faintly scented urine.

The author of this post turned 58 today, which happens also to be the birthday of one James Joyce, by whom the above passage was penned. The band 58, featuring Nikki Sixx and Dave Darling, covered the composition Alone Again (Naturally). And, Gilbert O’Sullivan is Gilbert O’Sullivan.
