04:31 pm - I need you to feel this
Experimental verification leads me to conclude that it is, in fact, possible for the Death Stereo to play Tool's "Prison Sex" loudly enough to cause the neighbor's CD player to skip.  (From outside, which is where I prudently stayed for this test, it was still possible to hear his irritating-ass bassline underneath the audio warfare I was waging in return... barely.)

Interestingly, he didn't actually come outside until the playlist hit Tori Amos.  Booming beats he could deal with, but long-sustain slow-decay piano chords that rattle the fillings out of your teeth and make your lungs hurt for 10 seconds at a time were apparently more than he could take.

Once he finally came outside, we arrived at an uneasy accommodation.  I suspect it won't last long.  But that's okay, I have the Death Stereo, earplugs, no headache, and no neighbor on the other side of me.  I can renegotiate at will... if necessary, I might even take it past half volume.

Wonder how many local animals went into season during your experiments?

At those volumes it's not really a question of musical taste so much as what has the most structural impact. Piano chords are UNBELIEVABLY aggressive at that kind of volume. Your whole rib cage thrums like a sounding box.

I dunno, I'm sure there are worse selections he could've came up with to do that. Jimbo ++

Nice to see you're still alive and kickin'. :) (albeit, not on Pen)

I still read Pen daily, I just have little to say about most of the topics that come up. And even when I do have something to say, it's usually along the lines of "you really are a dumb asshole aren't you?" so I refrain. Don't get me wrong, people are generally cool, but the times I really want to say something, I'd just rather not get into it :)

How ya been?

That would be the Mighty Pen, all right.

That's why I tend to take two or three month sabbaticals.

heh, agreed. I've been trying to stick to the Gaming forum mostly, as the other stuff doesn't interest me as much. Trying to stop the snide comments I typically make... but yeah.

I've been doing pretty good though. Few things here and there, but doing a lot better this year than I have in the past.

I was about to say the same thing.

Again, I wasn't picking something I thought of as an "irritating artist" (and didn't actually PICK Tori anyway, just turns out "Tori Amos" is the next thing after "Tool" in my MP3 directory).

If I was going for "horrible music", David Hasselhoff all the way. Yes, even over Celine Dion in French.

Uh. When he sings the line, 'Keep it up girl, Yeah you turn me on'. There's two little girls with wings behind him. That's just. Creepy.
