Subject: RE: BS: hearing loss, tinnitus
Thanks to the band Association and gunpowder I have a deficit in the left ear only. At bedtime running a fan for background white noise is what many people with tinnitus do.

Our ears evolved in a much quieter world. Restaurants or movie theaters can be offensive today.

There were times when an entire orchestra was at fff I could only hear my cello through conduction sound of a tuning peg.

The missing data such as a word in song lyrics is filled in by my brain, often with hysterical results. The more white matter in your brain the stranger and funnier the connections become. Like "give me your 'tired love' instead of 'higher'.
