Finnegan Wake Monster High Doll, 2015 - Finnegan is the son of a merman. He is 17. His favorite activity is working out in the school pool. His blue Mohawk and clawesome tats may say punk rocker, but his fashions are scary-cool race wear. His pet peeve is monsters who think that because he's in a chair, he’ll let anything hold him back. His freaky flaw is that he's a scaredevil who doesn’t like to be told, “That’s too dangerous.” Though, sometimes he may dive in headfirst too quickly.

If you enjoy the sing-song cadence of a lilting Irish Brogue, then you’ll enjoy this recording of James Joyce reading from Finnegans Wake. (But if you’re anything like me you’ll probably end up scratching your head, because the man might as well be reading Lorem ipsum placeholder text, for all the sense it makes.)
