    I read this aloud to my husband and we both started laughing because as former Market Street residents, there were quite a few times where we would have liked to assault one of our neighbors and toss their sound system into the street.

      Deep bass only sounds good if it comes in the shape of a song. I suggest the following, my personal top ten

      •“Who Am I (What’s My Name)?” – Snoop Dogg.
      • “Boomin’ System” – LL Cool J.
      • “Take a Walk” – Masta Ace.
      • “If I Can’t” – 50 Cent.
      • “Rock Superstar” – Cypress Hill.
      • “That’s How” – D12.
      • “In Stereo” – Fort Minor.
      • “F**k Tony Montana” – La Coka Nostra.
      • “Vibrate” – Petey Pablo.
      • “Intergalactic” – Beastie Boys.

      otherwise, yes, toss the sound system. Or perhaps assault and then, toss – depending on the song violence may be justified, eg Nik Turner. But perhaps double check with the new police chief. Unsure actually.

        I’ll take Snoop and the Beastie Boys.
        My personal proximity to local law enforcement, and lack of an alias, prevent me from commenting further… until I have a glass of wine…
