I pretty much gave up on sleep and decided I'd reply in kind by playing my own music loud. If I have to listen to loud music, it might as well be something I like. So I was enjoying my music, though I kept being able to hear the other music over the top, and then my grandmother came in to see if I was trying to sleep! They couldn't hear a note of what I was playing on my computer, so Nan challenged me to turn my music up as loud as I could and make them hear me. Seeing my computer speakers could barely handle a live performance of U2's Mofo at the current volume, I went to my sound system and engaged in the Noise Wars.
And guess what? I won.
The winning song was Porcupine Tree's Wedding Nails from 2002's In Absentia album. It's a 6:30 instrumental, but don't let that put you off - it rocks. How do you think I won? Even if you don't think you like instrumentals, download and enjoy its rocking goodness.
After that, they kept playing their music anyway and I conceded as my speakers weren't going to keep going too much longer and I just wanted to go to sleep anyway. Well, I didn't get any quiet to allow me to sleep for at least another hour after that. Ugh, drunk people and sound systems are not a good combination if you wish to have a good night's sleep.
And that's my story for today. I swear there better not be a repeat of last night at Mum's birthday tomorrow. In any case, I'm tired and think I'll go crash into bed now.
