[Ed. Note: In Please Enjoy Responsibly, columnist Raymond Cummings tracks down the best noise music of the month, while keeping an eye out for the best of recent months and saluting noise triumphs of yesteryear.]
The buzz of the fan, the mumble of the air conditioner, the numbing hum of central air: no more, no more. That's over, people. It's autumn now, and it's getting cooler. Not cold, mind. When it's cold there's the baseboard heat or the plug-in heater to turn to, and those appliances generate some pleasant ambient noise. But for now we're in between consumer electronic drones, which means we're in the season where we're forced to willfully pollute our surroundings. Don't make that face; as if you weren't doing that already.
