I heard an NPR story called Ghetto Life 101. They gave two teenage boys in Chicago a tape recorder and told them to record everything that happened in a day. One asks his mother, “Who is my father?”

“Your father is a felon named Toby Flipper. He saw you when you were about two and I ain’t seen him since.”

“What do you think happened to him?”

“He’s probably dead.”

“Thank you.”


LeAlan Jones and Lloyd Newman are great.

I thought, there’s a recorder on my phone, I should do that. I don’t live in the ghetto; but, I work in one of the world’s fanciest brothels, and people might be interested.

Here is a day in my life at work:

The audio isn’t perfect because the recorder on my phone seems to skip, especially the first few seconds of this, but you’ll get the gist.


My room in the old seraglio.
