Re: noisy neighbors
Assuming there is no landlord, management, or tenants association to complain to, and you've asked nicely that they quiet down, then fight fire with fire. When the neighbor turns up the tv, put your stereo speakers against the wall and turn up something with lots of thump and bump. Same with the neighbors upstairs. When they come to you and ask you to turn it down, give them the same response they've given you. Then, tell them you'll turn your "life" down if they kindly do the same.
Some folks don't know just how loud they are, most don't care. Sometimes you have to show them just how annoying they are.
