    This always works:

    -walk into the room
    -take a deep breath
    "Shut the **** up or ****, I'll ******* kick your guys' *** before that ******* **** plays another ******* song! ****!

    This is my 'toned down version'

    Hitssquad posted a link somewhere, I think in technology (an old thread, you'll have to search for it) on noise cancelling headphones. They're pricey, but for such a dire situation, they seem well worth the expense! (I think you can buy them in places like Staples and some other stores that sell audio equipment...they're mostly marketed toward people flying on planes, though if you don't want ones that allow you to listen to music, you can pick up ones that just give you silence at hardware stores, usually near the lawnmowers or other power tools; they're sold as hearing protection there).

    hmmm, are they using original CD's? Or burned ones? Or is it all digitalized?
    (that's right, I have a plan!)

    I like plans.:biggrin: Although I must say my particular crisis is a sticky one. See my sister has the CD, but the music has been put on the computer in the living room (which is right above my basement bedroom :grumpy:). That computer has a pretty decent sound system hooked up to it, and the subwoofer is right on the floor above my head.

    Also, the other music that isn't on the album my sister has is on the computer in digital form.

    Yes, although my dad may use TheStatutoryApe's suggestion against me in a form of punishment. Plus my dad is bigger than me so it would be an empty threat :uhh:

    It seems that they have thought of everything, there is a anti-power-outage-system-thingy hooked up to the computer so that when the power goes out it stays on and my dad doesn't loose all the information, also the network stays on that way and my laptop (which has a battery:biggrin:) still has internet. The enemy is strong, I think it's time to hear what General Smurf has to say about the current situation.

    Moonbear, thank you for the suggestion but I need a money-friendly alternative :smile:

    Start playing ABBA, your sisters (or at the very least, your Dad), will be shocked into silence:

    If that doesn't help, threaten them that you will start listening to Village People. The threat of having "YMCA" played at full volume in a nice, suburban home will surely do it.

    You could start singing along. But not well, just scream at the top of your lungs parts of the lyrics, get other parts all wrong, sing "la la la" for others, etc. Of course, this only works if they aren't already singing along badly.
