Good earplugs make good neighbors

  • Good earplugs make good neighbors
All pleasant neighbors are alike, but every difficult neighbor is a pain in the ass in his own delightful way. Or hers.

Reader alum Tori Marlan recently contended with an odd neighbor in Montreal, where Marlan now serves as our Special Unpaid Canadian Correspondent. Marlan thought this year's ShortDocs challenge, sponsored by Third Coast International Audio Festival, would help her squeeze some good out of her trials.

The current year's ShortDocs challenge is a two- to three-minute audio story featuring at least two neighbors, three straight seconds of narrative silence, and a color in the title of the bit. All submissions are posted on SoundCloud, and four will be chosen as winners. The submission deadline has passed, but there's plenty to listen to—such as Marlan's tale, "Seeing Red". Warning: it includes Rahm Emanuel-genre language.
