Isn't it against my constitutional rights to have to be listening to CHRISTMAS MUSIC being piped in from an adjoining cubicle in my state office building???

It is so loud I can hear the lyrics too.

headphones are truly a life saver in the world of cubicles (though they still do not drown out the loud-talker who loves college sports, children's sports, and talking on the phone about mini-van repair and his son's feet problems. HEADPHONES!

Does anyone know if I can just plug the headphones into my harddrive w/o having external speakers and hear a CD? My Discman got jacked in my poor lil car break in last week.

I love how the witch turned it off for the lunch hour though...ahhhh.

This is the same woman who is perenially "sick" who always makes me help her with the internet and also makes me crawl under her desk to pick up tacks and shit for her cos I'm "SOOOOOO TINY"!!!!!!

that is horrible. tell her to get a fucking magnet and pick up her own damn shit.

you should be able to plug your headphones into the front jack directly into the CD drive. you just need to go into your volume control and mute all, so it doesn't come through on speakers. my piece of shit computer has needed a new CD ROM for 19 months. i need to start submitting battery receipts for reimbursement. fuckers.

Now I am sounding like the online equivalent of my next door cubicle mate, but is the volume control in the "Control Panel" options?

Thanks Razor!

you can control the CD volume by going into control panel-->multimedia and then click on the CD tab. The speaker volume control mixer thing is usually just a speaker at the bottom right of the screen, near the time. You can probably get to it through the control panel/multimedia option too. sorry if that is unreadable. long day.

Can't you blast back with yr. own X-mas tunes??
Lazy Cowgirls- Sock it to me Santa
The Creamers- Father Christmas
Fear- Fuck Chrsitmas
(Since peeps on this board seem to be digging them mucho lately) CRASS- Merry Crassmas
Maybe the Feederz "Jesus entering from the rear" counts? The Yobs X-mas album
Hanoi Rocks "Dead by Christmas"

But that Kinks one the Creamers cover just rules:
"Father Christmas/ Give me the money/ Save your toys/ For all the rich boys"
...or similar thereof

OH YES!!! This can be my ultimate revenge...instead of grousing like a lil beeyatch.

This is gonna be awesome. She asked the Korean woman on the other side of her today, "Kim, I hope you don't mind listening to Christmas songs...",assuming Kim was some sort of "funny" religion.

How come no one's mentioned the dogs singing "Jingle Bells" yet? That's the all time greatest novelty record EVER....

There's a Colonel Sanders one too. I was playing it a few christmas' ago and the metalhead I was living with couldn't take it anymore. He said "I'm gonna chuck this fuckin' thing out the window." I deadpanned, "Yeah, go ahead mate." So he did. Xmas lesson: don't deadpan your sarcasm to metalheads. Or play Mario Carts for 10 hours straight while drinking champagne.

"Champagne Sunday's OK/ I'm too sick for monday"

Spinal Tap's "Christmas with the Devil" would've placated him (?)
or better yet "Merry Axemas", dude, it jams.

Eazy-E's "Merry Muthaphukin Christmas" is always the cure for those yultide blues.

Why quit your job Alienator when you can sue??

"An Austrian trade union has claimed the repetitive playing of Christmas Carols in department stores is nothing short of "psycho-terrorism" for salespeople.

From morning to night, for weeks before Christmas, there was the same Christmas music in department stores over and over again, said Gottfried Rieser of the Union of Private Employees.

"Many staff in the retail sector suffer psychologically from it. They get aggressions and aversions against Christmas music. On Christmas Eve with their families, they can't stand Silent Night or Jingle Bells any more," he said."

I'd have to argue that my cubicle neighbor's recent conversion to Calvinsim also constitutes 'psycho-terrorsim' but I guess thats I've got 'Let there be Rock' turned up to 10.
