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!
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?

But what if they’re from the southern hemisphere and just moved here?

Then “Have Yourself a Merry Little Leprechaun.” It’s still March!

On second thought, eeeeeewwww…

The Southern Hemisphere still celebrates Christmas in December. The seasons are irrelevant.
Mar 30, 2012 at 12:17 pm rating: 11
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.

This is why I encourage those with eccentric music tastes to get iPods.

This is why I encourage busybodies with too much time on their hands to mind their own fucking business.
Mar 29, 2012 at 3:25 pm rating: 5
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.
Mar 30, 2012 at 3:05 pm rating: 33
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.
(Edited to remove needless profanity. Sorry!)

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?!?!

This comment is so wrong and so very funny!!! Thanks for the laugh!

Taking the photo via Instagram immidiately qualifies you as a tool. Won’t even read what the notice says.
Mar 29, 2012 at 4:01 am rating: 1
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.
Mar 29, 2012 at 5:14 am rating: 16
instagram photos are square. duh.
Mar 29, 2012 at 10:46 am rating: 1
Why does it matter?
Mar 29, 2012 at 1:29 pm rating: 12
Since it’s actually closer to 4:3 than square, I’d say that the only “tool” in question is a regular digital camera. /:

the only “tool” in question is a regular digital camera… and someone who hipsterishly proclaims they’re refusing to participate because the item might have been shared by some app

Better have the landlord go check. Maybe somebody dropped dead last December.

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!
Mar 29, 2012 at 11:33 am rating: 22
Oh, I think the “then I won’t have to cut you” is implied.
Mar 29, 2012 at 2:10 pm rating: 23
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.
Mar 29, 2012 at 12:10 pm rating: 15
then don’t live in an apartment

That sounds like good advice for his neighbor.

Disturbing the peace is illegal all times of the day or night.

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.

Our Neighbors Blast Rap-and one morning it woke both my mother and i up-so i put Queen in our Surround Sound System-turned it to FULL BLAST-and played We Will Rock You…I shook a picture off our wall-that is how loud it was…

My neighbor across the street opens up his garage and plays Tejano music for the entire neighborhood every holiday.

That’s not too bad… as long as he doesn’t count National Doughnut Day and Remember to Change Your Smoke Detector Batteries Week as holidays.

I’m still hung up on that spelling of Bizarre.
But I love that passive-aggressive “Merry X-Mas” at the end.

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).

are these my neighbors? i have 2 little boys that LOVE to listen to Christmas music all year long, we usually turn it on to calm them down during a fit.
Mar 30, 2012 at 9:28 pm rating: 2
That depends. Do you play it loud enough to annoy your neighbors?

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.

Christmas music inspires hatred no matter the volume or time of year.
Apr 2, 2012 at 2:04 pm rating: 3
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.
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.”

Starting in August? August? Oh hell no.

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.

They couldn’t even complain about you joining their fun, so turn it up!

I have a friend that cleans to Christmas music. It works the best for her so maybe that person was doing the same ^^;
