One of my neighbors has been singing Sarah McLaclans In The Arms of An Angel loudly in her backyard for at least 30 minutes now and I'm pretty sure this is how the CIA tortures terrorists.


I kinda want to shout over the fence to shut up but maybe I'd be disturbing a memorial for her pet rabbit or something. There's literally no other excuse for anyone to butcher IN THE AAAAAAAAAAAAARMS OOOOOOOOOF AN ANGEEEEEEEL for so long.

I advise an outward mindset. Maybe said neighbor is in distress. Would you be willing to see if there's anything you can do to help?

@cryptoxic and risk catching the attention of a crazy person? Noooope.

How sad. I hope said neighbor is OK and not considering self harm.

@Gina Got some neighbours here blasting music out loud of the window "for everyone". It's not all bad but it annoys me that people think they are being cool foisting their taste on the world.

Counter it by singing "The Sound Of Silence" ... the Disturbed cover of it ;-P

@FreePietje Play something by Merzbow to compensate. Hopefully they'll get the message.

@Gina Backyard? Throw some money over the fence. Then, call ASCAP or whoever licenses music and say she's doing a paid concert without paying for the rights. 😂

Don't hold back it will make isolation more fun for both of you ;)
