    Wish I lived in that building. B’cause I LOVES punk music, c. 1970′s and would also love to share some awesome sound. Play some Sex Pistols’ “Anarchy in the UK” at 3am, hells yeah!
    “Right now
    ha ha ha ha ha…

    I am an antichrist
    I am an anarchist
    Don’t know what I want
    But I know how to get it
    I wanna destroy passerby”

    It does not get better than that. Play it loud, young & snotty, at 7am, 3am… So what really is the dif? Or can’t we all just get along?

    Probably not.

      Yeah, but December the 25th is the same day no matter what hemisphere you’re in. Just because the seasons are reversed, doesn’t mean the calendar is! ROFL.

      Being forced to listen to music against one’s will does not make one a busybody and does not make one “in the business” of the person with the loud music. It’s the other way around, actually.

      Strawberry Creme’s advice wasn’t directed at people who play their music too loud, only those with “eccentric” tastes in music. I totally agree no one should play their music loud enough to disturb their neighbors, but that’s not what SC was talking about.

    What if they died in December and no one noticed because they’ve driven their family away with their hoarding and now they’re rotting under a pile of troll pencil toppers, newspapers and unopened closet organizer sets?!?!

    Taking the photo via Instagram immidiately qualifies you as a tool. Won’t even read what the notice says.

      Where do you see that it’s Instagram? I’ve gotten images with a similar look from a normal digital camera (heck, I’ve gotten that kind from a film camera). It looks like light coming from a lamp from one side, is all.

    If . . . WHAT? What happens if all of those conditions are met? My pet peeve is when someone adds “if” to the front of a sentence, and then thinks it is still a complete sentence. If people wouldn’t do that. See? Sounds stupid. Because it IS stupid!

    Ugh, reminds me of the jerk in my building that thinks it’s cool to blast reggae all hours of the day and night all day long so loud you can hear it outside the building. Fortunately it usually stops between 11pm-8am, but damn it’s annoying during the other times of the day. Sometimes you just want some peace and quiet.

      I always found the best way to deal with people who insist on playing their music loudly is to blast them back – using opera. The Song Of The Golden Calf from the opera Faust works wonders. A baritone singing in French while playing a demon always seems to get neighbors to turn their own music down.

    I don’t think the type of music matters — it’s the volume and the time of day. If someone wants to listen to nothing but Christmas music, bluegrass music, etc., all the time, that’s their right. But being respectful to your neighbors is essential — and part of that is, tolerating someone’s occasionally loud music during off hours (like for a party on a weekend or something).

    I had a roommate my sophomore year who LOVED Christmas music. She would go to her room and play it (and sing along) all day. She is in grad school now, and if this note was written to her, I would not be surprised!!

    So as I’m laughing at this thinking what weirdos listen to Christmas music in March, I’m listening to a CD that is in my 10 disk CD player. All the sudden the CD ends and a Christmas CD comes on. Guess we never got to that disk in a while and didn’t realize it was still in there. Maybe that is what happened here.

    I am personally against hearing Christmas music against my will at Christmas time. I’m far more willing to listen to it against my will in March, though. At least in March, there isn’t all the commercialism associated with the music (which is what I think destroyed it for me in the first place. The fact that Christmas takes place in Winter where I am is the second thing that destroyed Christmas for me).

    As a member of a professional caroling group that has to sing Christmas carols at least weekly for approximately five months of the year (starting at the beginning of August), I will she-hulk at anyone who tries to inflict this shit on me out-of-season.

    *cough*

    This may have actually happened at a caroling photoshoot in February… “it’s a PHOTOSHOOT, we don’t have to sing THESE ACTUAL SONGS because nobody can TELL what we’re singing in a PHOTOGRAPH FOR THE LOVE OF GOD I WILL STAB EVERYONE.”

    Heavy metal isn’t a bad armed response, but if you want to raise the disturbingly-strange factor, try piobaireachd. It’s “the classical music of the bagpipes,” full of fun stuff like 15-minute long laments for the earl of Dunmore or Macdonald of Kinlochmoidart. Could be the three drones sounding “A” the whole time; could be that no one outside of piping students can tell there’s a melody to these things.

    After 45 minutes, switch to something like Sergeant Pepper played on the harpsichord.
