that stinks, Val. I like a lot of heavy metal, but having it constantly in the house like that, and not really playing along with a song or anything would drive me crazy, too..
do the keeties seem to mind? I would think that kind of noise wouldnt please them.
could you get out of the house for a little bit? like to shopping or something?
this is a tough one, that's all I can think of. short of soundproofing the room, haha
