[Spoken word]


Hey Joe, it's me.

Um... I'm just calling to l-l-let...

I'm really sorry there for making you feel so bad.

I feel so...

Right now I'm serious, I feel like a much more awful person, too.

I hope that you're having a nice night and that your show went well.

And I'm sorry for sending those repeats.

I've been sitting in my room all evening, thinking about everything... that happened.

Bet you're feeling better now than when I talked to you.

And that my retarded call doesn't make you feel... sad... or worse.

I love you a lot.

Sorry that I've become this monster. I love you a lot...

[Refrain loops, distorts, and disintegrates]

    General CommentUnbelievably gut-wrenching.

    This is found sound at its most personal and painful. Apparently, this message was left on the answering machine of Joseph Grimm (the man behind The Wind-Up Bird) by his girlfriend. The individual words of its key phrase, "Sorry that I've become this monster, I love you a lot," became the tracklisting for his album "Whips".

    I think finding out what exactly happened between these two people is beside the point. It's enough to know that their relationship really fucking mattered.

    The full album is packed with emotion, but this track, which eventually turns into heartbreaking--and earbreaking--white noise, should be enough to slay anyone with a pulse.
