My yard: The sounds of nature

I love sitting on my porch and just listening. This was from a week ago but tonight is equally as awesome. I’m not sure the recording does this justice. The sound outside is incredible, almost deafening. I find it extremely pleasant. It is also all around. Imagine no matter which way you turn or look this sound is in front of you, behind you, above you, and to your sides. Close your eyes and enjoy or turn on the visualizer in iTunes, Winamp, or Windows Media Player.

Drowning Out the Decibels with Noise

My house is noisier than yours. I know this because I think OSHA would require hearing protection in this place.

Our house it has a crowd
There’s always something happening
And it’s usually quite loud

I have some wonderful noise canceling headphones but they don’t completely isolate me from the noise. That is, until I decided to pump some white noise through them! has some downloadable white noise clips. You can down 30 seconds of white, pink and brown noise that you play in a continuous loop. You can also download a one hour thunderstorm! This works so well I thought I was home alone!
