Here Comes The Boom



Oh hell yeah! I miss the days when people would carry around boomboxes. These new fangled iPods with their tiny pocket-sized carrying convenience and ability to hold more than 6 songs per side of the tape. Bullshit is what it is!

    At least he has the common courtesy to use earphones. But electronics-fashion wise, he needs something twice as big, double the cassette decks & something a bit more metal-ish, not white. Perhaps he’s going for hipster points here.

    Like the shoulder strap though.

    I like it. There is a certain sense of style missing with mp3 players. Color and style of boombox is kinda gay, though. Should have invested in the large-ass silver/gray “pump up da bass” boombox.

    The best part is that assuming this picture was taken recently, i.e., August or early September, it’s still warm enough in Wyoming that unless it was very early morning, it’s probably hot as hell for what appears to be 3 layers of sweatshirts!

    By the way, his “cellular phone” is in a big bag on the other side. He has to dial the tower first then the number! yeah, I hear the eighties calling him back. Maybe he is wanting not to look too outta place when he gets to his “Time Musheen” And back to the eighties.
