ARGH!!!! I WISH I WERE TOTALLY DEAF NOW!
« Topic Start: June 09, 2007, 01:22:08 PM »
OK, maybe not completely deaf   :?  but there's a HORRIBLE GARAGE BAND ACROSS THE STREET!!!  Feedback and gosh awful guitar/drums!  Andrew has given them a name now - the Atomic Wedgies!  He ran out there and screamed to shut off the racket.  The squealing feedback is killing my ears!  I'm sensitive to high frequencies like that now.

I don't handle high frequencies well now, either, or loud noises generally. I like Andrew's name for them!

Thanks, it made me laugh, too.  Funny kid!  We just went to the mayor's ice cream shop to escape.  Came home and it's nice and quiet!

Get those foamy ear plugs.  They work great!  I even use them at concerts.  They cut out the noisiness and then can hear the lyrics better.  Also protects your ears.

Andrew should quickly patent the name or get a domain name like that.  Then if a band ever calls itself that, it will pay for Andrew's College education!   They would have to buy it from him!   :lol:

Go over there, and tell them to either turn the volume down, or only play so often.

If it keeps up, I'll have to do that.  I don't want to be a dowdy neighbor or anything.  But there is a such thing as too loud!  I also can't stand it when someone pulls up next to me at a light and have their "boom boom" music so loud that it bounces my van.  It's one thing to enjoy your music, but another thing when you force it on someone else.

If talking to them doesn't help, you could also check on zoning regulations for your area. There might be an ordinance that would come into play. In the meantime, I like the foam earplugs, too...

I thought about that too.  But this is in broad day light hours, not at night.

Good point, but it may be worth checking into. I think the regulations may be online.

Forgot to say I like the sig line -- hadn't noticed it before!

I'll do that tomorrow and thanks!  I just threw it together.  :)

Now that could really work!  I'm sure that Andrew would be most happy to add to it!

I would rather the constables handle it. in this day and age for any little reason people pull out guns.

While you're at it, check into sign ordinances, too.

FOund out that loud music isn't allowed any time of the day.  Dan said he'll go over and chat w/ them next time.

Good to know it's covered. However, Dan needn't chat with the noisemakers in person. If you let the people in the zoning office know there's an issue, I think they'd send someone out to look into it.
