Last month my brother Michael was invited to write and read a narrative piece for the Soundtrack Series. The Soundtrack Series "is a live monthly reading/storytelling event where six writers tell the memories, stories, or tirades triggered every time they hear a particular song of their choosing." All the performances are recorded and later uploaded to the Soundtrack Series website as individual podcasts. I had wanted to go and see Michael read, but I had a scheduling conflict and couldn't attend. So I've been waiting for his podcast to get posted.

His piece went up on the website today. I just finished listening to it; laughed my ass off the whole time. The minute I heard him say the words "angsty break up story" I knew exactly what story he was going to tell. I was fourteen the year it happened, and he didn't get over it until after I turned twenty!

Really, you all have got to hear this. The piece is fifteen minutes long, but it's worth every second.

Here's The Soundtrack Series – Featuring Michael Criscuolo

As a postscript I would like to add that this is the song Michael had playing on repeat in his CD player for eight months following those events:



And, just in case I haven't mentioned it lately, I love my brother :-)
