    I just spoke to our other friend in the bar (the girl he likes, actually) and apparently he told her what I'd said and she said, "Well what did you expect when you play your music that loudly? And now you've made her feel bad for having to talk to you about it as well!"

    :p:

    I don't know, she only said what she'd said to him.

    Wouldn't it be funny if he's CDs just "disappeared"? or his laptop "accidently" wiped all his itunes?
    Maybe they could make a reappearance when he learns some manners, the cheeky sod

    I reckon the best thing you could do is send him a link to this thread. He can then read how you find it a problem but also the nice things you said about him and how you don't want to fall out with him. It might make him more reasonable. Couldn't hurt anyway

    Why should I have to?

    All my stuff is here. The study room is in the basement and has no natural light, and the library is a half hour walk away.

    He's no friend if he acts like that. If you don't want to have it out with him again go to the wardens/security etc or else speak to the accommodation office. If for some bizarre reason you do want him as a friend after this they do have ways of being discreet about who complained, such as posting notices in all the flats about noise, not just singling him out.

    He could just have been having an off day but I wouldn't put up with it anymore. We had the exact same thing with guys living underneath us and it's been continual since we got here in September. It was only after they were partying non stop thru the exam period that one of them got evicted and the rest got fined...but even now they're still at it.

    My heart goes out to you, it sucks when you can't even chill or study in your own room!

    There's nothing wrong with his music tastes; what IS wrong is the fact that he imposes them on people.

    Argh....sometimes he is, sometimes he isn't. But I was really shocked. I've asked Paul to turn his music down twice since we've been here and both times he's been really good about it. But I thought it was kind of understood that if someone asks you nicely to turn it down, you do. :confused:

    Oh, well, at least you've got an ally.
    I'd have said: 'Since you've appointed yourself 'resident D.J' may I make a request?'

    And playing your own favourite music genre twice as loud rarely helps as you tend to find yourself embroiled in a great big noise war.

    Industrial earphones really helped me.

    Do you live in halls or in a shared house? You really should complain; after all you've asked him and he refused to turn down his music.

    Last year when I was in halls the guys I was living in between used to play music at stupid o'clock in the morning. When I needed to work I asked them to turn the music down and they were fine, but I know other people who had to complain until something was done about it.

    Good luck in getting it sorted!
