Have any of you read Cupcake Brown's memoir A Piece of Cake? My roommate Amy recommended it. Anita, my other roommate, recently downloaded the audio book. Among umpteen other personal traumas, Cupcake's biological father threw her to the wolves as a tot. She turned to prostitution and drugs amidst years of abuse from the strangers she was forced to live with. Cupcake finally catches a break and inherits $25k. Papa Dearest decides this is a good time to reconnect with his beloved daughter. Of course.
Enter the greatest audio book recording I've ever heard. As I listened to Cupcake absolutely RIPPING into her father, it struck me: "You know, if I took out some of this personal narrative and the few mentions of the word 'father', I could easily create the most heroic telling-off-your-ex piece ever!"
Without further ado, I present today's sixty seconds of sound: a cathartic berating of all crappy exes. Though the angry curse words did add a lovely element, I used a signal generator to bleep out the worst of it. Oh, and an apt karaoke tune.
THE SUNDAY SOUND: September 11, (Don't Want to Be) Close to You.
