Bring the Noise

Posted on Tue, Sep 24, 2013 at 6:04 AM

Sitting in my backyard on any given day, I might hear the bagpipes two blocks down, the poor bastard nearby trying to learn to play the bugle, the muffled sounds of the band down the street dreaming of fame and fortune, the passing rush hour traffic, squawking crows in the trees overhead, neighbours' dogs barking, the North End anthem of distant sirens, or some children playing somewhere nearby. I never complain. Anyone who complains about noise before midnight needs to get a reality check. This is a city. A vibrant, beautiful city. Sit back, chill out and enjoy the symphony. —Easy Ear
