Grab your copy of Ulysses or Finnegan’s Wake and get ready to “Joyce Around” (3:51) at the James Joyce Irish Pub in Ybor City, Florida.

Meredith Myers, the StandUpLibrarian, writes: “I decided to premiere my new holiday literary parody video live on stage in early December where I choreographed a chase sequence with a real ginger man (my friend, librarian Justin Brasher) and concluded with gingerbread man cookies I baked myself. Watch ‘I Ran After the Gingerbread Man’ (5:06), a mashup of ‘I Ran (So Far Away)’ by A Flock of Seagulls with the Gingerbread Man folktale.”...

One highlight at the ALA PopTop Stage on Monday was the debut performance of the 817’s (for you Dewey-challenged folk, that’s “American humor and satire”), a comedy troupe consisting of Stand-Up Librarian Meredith Myers (center), MLIS of Fortune (and singer) Danica Sheridan, and RUSA’s own Mr. Reference, Dave Tyckoson. In addition to the finale song, a karaoke version of Madonna’s “Girl Gone Wild” (be sure to watch the amazing video, 4:54), the 817’s performed stand-up and improv, and debuted a hilarious Dos Equis spoof video, “The Most Interesting Librarian in the World,” featuring none other than former ALA President Michael Gorman....AL: Annual Conference blog, June 26
