    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...

    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.

    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.

    All The Time...

    When I'm on my own mainly I turn my music right up loud when I'm travelling to places on the bus or something. I always take both earphones out of my ears though to check how loud it is.. and sometimes you can just about hear all the words of the song and everything. Loud music...

    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.

    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.
