Zombies like it quiet

This is just precious:

The noise from a new skate park in Connecticut is too much for rocker Rob Zombie.

He and his wife have complained to the Litchfield County town of Woodbury that the park, which opened near their home in April, makes such a racket that it should be moved.

The town is looking into moving the park, but first it's trying to muffle the noise by enclosing the sides of the metal skate ramps, stuffing the jumps with Styrofoam and putting up soundproofing fabric on a fence, said First Selectman Gerald Stomski. The park hours were also reduced and it is closed on Sundays.

Too noisy. For Rob Zombie. Man, I've heard his music, and he should be pretty close to deaf by now. That skate park must be really, really, really loud.

Gotta admit, I'm a fan of one of his movies, "The Devil's Rejects," which is kind of a schlocky bloodfest, filled with hero-villain protagonists who just won't die no matter how many times you shoot them. Never thought a guy who could make a movie like that would reach the "Get off my lawn!" phase.
