If I win the lottery I think I might open up a headshop in Buellton just so I can sue the crap out of them. Then I'll expand the headshop and make it the biggest headshop in the world.

Ya screw the whiners. This is something called life and others have the right to enjoy theirs, and that is going to include doing things which make noise. If those people aren't on your property while they are making noise there isn't much you can do about it, but you do have the right to get ear plugs or even some comfy ear muffs would probably help. Or turn on some classical music or something that YOU enjoy to drown out the background noise. Or simply adjust your attitude. Every time you hear a clickety-clack, think about all the kids that are having fun at the fair and how much fun you had at the fair when you were younger. Or relate it to something else you enjoyed when you were young. Now suddenly the same noises are bringing about positive emotions instead of negative ones.

Hah, Priceless, you seem to be the one who didn't read the article here. Ken is correct that they were not only under the legal decibal limit, but they did in fact turn it down three times EVEN THOUGH they were under the limit.
Now, dubstep is something else. It is essentially bass music. Bass being manipulated in ways that excentuates itself very sensually and/or violently. Unless you have an incredible audio setup and understanding neighbors, you're not going to get anything close to the full effect of being at an actual show. Recorded dubstep is merely a shadow of it's live self. They have really learned to do some amazing things with bass that you will never get to experience unless you attend shows of certain dubstep and edm artists.
I don't know enough about how decibal meters work and whether decibal limits are equal for rock shows vs. dubstep shows. The best, loudest dubstep show I ever went to, surprisingly I came out of it with little no ear ringing compared to past rock and metal concerts I've been to. That's because they will usually put the mids and highs and appropriate levels and just pump the bass way up, because, well, that's the whole point. So maybe a previous poster was correct and the decibal meter wasn't working, or maybe dubstep bass some how is able to allude the meter and travel 2 MILES across town and shake windows. I wish this wasn't an issue, but if the authorities are going to shut down shows early then maybe they need to be answered.

lol, ADD SezMe listens to dubstep like they watch 9/11 conspiracy vids.... dubstep is all about the "drop" which doesn't happen in most dubstep songs until about the first minute in.
I wonder if Porter Robinson played the Knife Party mix of his song Unison?
Sadly, Excision will never be able to play this town :(

"Ahmadinejad is loony and a garden variety wing-nut. Netanyahoo is neither. " -italiansurg
I think it's the opposite.
Ahmadinejad just got reprimanded by his own government for speaking out against it. He has no real power in his government, he is just a figurehead, sort of like the Queen of England. Just that fact alone should tell you something about his opponents in the media.
On top of that, he has had a lot of quotes and ideas that have been mis-attributed to him. He's really just a figure that the US and Israel uses as a propaganda tool. He never said he wanted to wipe Israel off the map, he said he wanted the Israeli state to be erased from the sands of time and he wants all of the people who live there to live peaceably with each other.
He doesn't think that the Holocaust was invented or didn't exist, but he questions why some people in Europe have been put in prison for questioning certain facts about the specific numbers, figures and methods used by the Nazis in their apparent extermination effort. He wonders why this crime of the German government against Jewish people is an excuse to go in and displace Palestinians and steal their land and resources when they had nothing to do with it.
I'm not trying to portray him as a great guy, he has his faults I am sure. But I heard he also sleeps on the floor in a very modest dwelling. Which I guess could also be propaganda, but who knows. Maybe he is nothing like he is portrayed in the media.
