A Massive Rant

Monday, August 15, 2011

I live in a pretty urban neighbourhood: gardens, trees, cats & dogs,... and about 15 kids under 5 who only scream. Two or three times a day they are joyfully raped and murdered.
Now, our neighbours car alarm has gone off repeatedly through the night. It would never occur to them to shut the freakin' alarm on in the POS. It seems to be more important to wake everyone else up seven times through the night.
Ahhhh,... I hate my 'hood,... but I love my house so we can't move.

    I empathize. Sound has the capacity to take one from merely being annoyed into treacherous territory. Or for me anyway. I have some fancy noise cancelling headphones that are a dream. They are superb at bringing calm, way better than any tablet. Good-bye car alarms, barking dogs, neighbor noise, idling trucks...They work best on constant sounds such as a machine that is always in action rather than something sudden. But, they do work.

    Oh, at night, earplugs. Earplugs are not equal. There are different materials, sizes, and sound blocking powers. One can become an earplug connoisseur. It takes time to find the right one but there is a right one.
