Things That Go Thump In The Night


Posted by Non-Hamster on August 6th, 2009

When we first moved to a rural area one of the things that I very quickly came to appreciate was how much quieter it was than living in the city.  The constant background of city noises was very noticeable in it's absence.  No constant traffic sounds from a nearby freeway, no horns or sirens blaring almost constantly and best of all, it's so much easier to get away from those ever-to-be-hated thumping stereos.

That's why I was surprised the other night to be awakened at 3am by what felt like an earthquake.  Seriously, I am not a hamster, the entire farking house was shaking!  Then just as it started to fade, I saw my neighbor's halo headlights receding down their driveway and that's when it hit me.  The thump had finally found me again.

Mind you, I have no intention to tell somebody what they can or can not listen to or even when they can do so.  However, I gotta tell ya, when the stereo goes thump, that's a horse of a different color.  I seriously have no idea how anybody can tolerate being close to one of those monstrosities.  They actually make me physically sick.  Roiling stomach, I'm gonna puke all over the world sick.

Then there's the damage that people are doing to their hearing with nonsense like that.  20 years from now these people are going to be losing their hearing and I'm gonna sit back and say "I saw that coming 20 years ago."

In fact I just have to ask, if you have a thumping stereo, WHY??  What's so attractive about only being able to comprehend the beat and bass portion of the music?  Certainly the vocals can't possibly sound good with all the treble removed.  What's the point in what appears to me as an exercise in insane self-destruction?
