The One That Wishes They'd Turn The Sound Down. . .

Just a quick one today.

That's a picture of my street when the adverts come on, because they're so FUCKING LOUD.

I'm now getting very tired of being blasted through the wall into next door's living room whenever a commercial channel feeding through the Sky satellite system cuts to the adverts. The difference in volume between the programmes and inducements is startling.

It is also embarrasing, frankly, when I get people from Hammerfest knocking on my front door asking if I wouldn't mind turning the volume down on my telly, because the noise of adverts is disturbing their herd of reindeer.

This doesn't make we want to buy the sponsors' products, indeed it has quite the reverse effect. Now bloody cut it out.

Reminds me of the line from Apocalypse now....

Eagle Thrust, put on psy war op.
Make it loud. This is a Romeo Fox
Trot. Shall we dance?

A HAND switches on the tape deck. MUSIC COMES UP, Wagner's
"Ride of the Valkyrie", blaring through the external
speakers of the choppers, as they make their decent into
enemy territory.
