I've been trying to ignore the rumble of the digger on the building site next door. Even when I shoved my ipod earphones in and turned up the volume I could still feel it through the floor! The result was that I've been listening to 'drown-out the digger' rock tracks (Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Red Hot Chilli Peppers...) all day and it's had a curious effect on my writing. I might experiment with a bit of mellow jazz tomoz. Mahler on Wednesday? R&B on Thursday?
