Secret Weapon Against Noise

Call me noise-sensitive if you must, but somehow my block seems to be like some sort of equivalent of the Roman Forum for noisy, lost animals ... crows, dogs, frogs, students. Those freaking small yappy house dogs are the worst and you won't believe how long and loud frogs can croak for. The students think they're pretty bad but they've usually crashed and burnt by 1 or 2am.

Fortunately, there's a solution to this ever-recurring problem. Below is an mp3 I found on the 'net. It is 45 minutes of heavy rain noise. Load it into your iPod, crank up the volume and enjoy your new found peace.

About Roger Keays

Secret Weapon Against Noise

I guess I'd call myself a problem solver. Either that, or I'm some sort of organic machine designed to convert oxygen into carbon dioxide. You could go either way on that. I'm into languages and stuff. I wrote a book. It's okay, I guess. What else? I like reading, swimming, eating, and playing music. Satisfied? Sheesh.

Hi g. This is the only version I have, and unfortunately I can't remember exactly where it came from. I have tried recording my own rain sounds, but the results weren't as good.

Where did you find this recording? Do you have an uncompressed version of this? I'd like to edit it a bit, especially the fade-in. Thanks.
