Quentin Tarantino has had enough of his neighbor and fellow Academy Award-winning writer Alan Ball (American Beauty), whose lifestyle, Tarantino claims, is just way too distracting and imposing. Tarantino accuses Ball of making constant noise, caused by numerous houseguests and friends, and the whole thing has become just a flat-out nuisance to Tarantino and his cocaine wizard. Oh, I should point out that the houseguests and friends are birds.
According to TMZ…
According to Quentin’s lawsuit, filed today in L.A. County Superior Court, Tarantino claims ever since Ball installed an “exotic bird menagerie” — Quentin has been forced to endure the “obnoxious pteradactyl-like screams” of the macaw birds.
In fact, Q claims the noise has “seriously disrupted [his] ability to work as a writer in his home.”
Tarantino says he tried to amicably resolve the matter with Ball — but Alan has “done little to eliminate the macaws’ daily cacophony” … so he wants the judge to force Ball to silence them once and for all.
After I was done laughing at the word “cacophony” I remembered the macaw and cockatoo that my family had when I was growing up. Those f*ckers were loud. Like audience at a House Party movie loud. So I could see an entire “menagerie” being pretty awful. Tarantino is likely going to win his case, but at least Ball will eat well for a week.
