I find comfort in that no matter how annoying the downstairs neighbor's craptastic bass gets, I can tune them out much more effectively with a little help from iTunes (listening to Talisman's held in shining now) and the first mug of cocoa made from the massive 50-serving container of Stephen's Gourmet raspberry cocoa that my folks sent.

...and periodically running the vacuum in the living room to pick up stray pine needles.

I keep fighting the urge to point my speakers at the floor so I can treat them to my favorite music.

We duct-taped Khoe Dhee's speakers to the ceiling the other night in retaliation to our nympho upstairs neighbors. (The same ones who claim we have a Rottweiler that scares them. I have one dog and one cat, and said dog weighs 5 pounds. If she has any Rottie in her, I'll be amazed. I don't think Rotties can do the deed with chihuahuas.)

Luckily our noisy neighbor is downstairs, so I don't have to try to reach the ceiling. (Good thing, since I had to put several phone books on top of a folding stepstool to reach one of the smoke detectors when it needed a new battery.)

So the neighbor is what, 18" tall? It sounds like one of those funny photo-essays like Tales of the Plush Cthulhu.

I love iTunes, too.
One of the many reasons is that I had to affirmatively install it, unlike the five (!) other music players that have shown up on my computer since I bought it.
I hate Apple's QuickTime but iTunes more than makes up for that.
And thanks for saying "craptastic." That made my day!

I'd been a dedicated WinAmp user since early 1998, but the things I liked about it dissipated in successive releases and all my friends raving about iTunes convinced me to give it a try.

I say craptastic frequently enough that my mother no longer blinks when I use it in a sentence. Then again, she's the one that puts clown noses and miniature rubber ducks in geocaches, so she's either a little hipper or a little crazier than most of my age peers' parents.
