My neighbor, [redacted], is inconsiderate


There is no Combat! blog today, because I have several deadlines and slept about an hour last night. I went to bed around 10:30, which is the same time my downstairs neighbor, [redacted], turned on his stereo. He left it on until dawn, presumably to create a baseline of noise so that his punctuated shouting would not startle his friends. [Redacted] wakes me up a lot. I had the best studio apartment in Missoula until he moved in; now I have a dorm room with good light. Anyway, I will be working at the coffee shop while he sleeps listens to the above song on repeat via my own fairly powerful stereo. If you are reading this because you Googled “[redacted]”—or if you are, yourself, [redacted]—know that he is inconsiderate. I’ll be back tomorrow with less focused indignation.

  1. I was really hoping this was a video of Heman singing 4 Non-Blondes for 10 hours.

    You know calling the cops on loud music at bad times of night may be uncool… but impotently hating your neighbor from your sleepless bed is pretty uncool as well.

  2. Haha! So this is what you’re doing all day up there Dan. First of all, at the minimum, lets get the facts straight. It was this song ( I was listening too, along with the ENTIRE Three-6 Mafia collection (on repeat). I have actually never heard that song you embedded above. And it is inconsiderate Dan, but I always respond quickly to your imperious pounding when it comes a-knockin.’

    Now the next part… “The best apartment in Missoula.” (!?) We live in an uninsulated shack behind the Burger King Dan! You really need to get out more. You will find that this is one of the lower-end digs in town, in an area that seems to attract vagrants/vandalism.

    I read the “about” thing on here and this is apparently an “alternative” or “oppositional” blog? Also, – pro gun control but called “Combat Blog?” Odd. All I see is mainstream Democrat echo-chamber plus, apparently, the edginess of having a neighbor with a CD player, a case of beer, and a coffee maker… I think the Internet calls this “white people problems.”

    Finally, you have nothing more to worry about cause I’ll be out of your way within a couple weeks (as you may know) and you can return to your hermitage in the “best apartment in Missoula.” Unless, of course, Emily rents the place to someone under the age of 72, in which case you may have people who listen to music, throw parties, get in arguments, and show other signs of maintaining a social life. So beware.

    Sorry Dan! Our whole interaction was short and obtuse, but – we’ll always have Front St.
