    So I Am Told

    I am always being told that I do. But I don't think so. The louder is it the better for me.

    Make Your Speakers Bleed

    My mom gets pissed off when I do this b/c usually she's ringing the doorbell and I don't hear it or she'll just appear in front of me and scare me half to death. She always says that if other people can hear what you're listening to, then its way too loud. But if it isn't...

    Especially When I'm Alone In the Car.

    I pop in a CD and turn the volume up as loud as I can without causing myself any pain. I get weird looks from people, but hey, To each his own. I try to be considerate and turn it down for old people at least.

    Too Much Loud Country Music!!!

    Probably one of the reasons, along with loud impact guns and air tools and diesel engines, that I have a hard time hearing sometimes.

    I Listen To My Music Too Loud.

    I listen to my music very loud with head phones on bad days. Its something i do to drown out everything else. It either relaxes me or gives me a really bad headache. But somehow it works.

    It's Never Loud Enough

    I usually have to blast my music when I'm having a bad day, you know? To try to escape the pains of reality. I know you can't escape them forever, but if there's a chance to feel happy, even if it's just for a second, I'd gladly take it. Even on a good day, my music is always...
