1980 Called and Wants Its Boombox Back

Friday, December 19, 2008

Drama Kid is being a bit of a brat lately and it's totally killing my holiday spirit buzz. I've been a cookie baking fool this week and have two more batches left today. I thought some Christmas music would help restore my inner peace and harmony but even at the highest volume, I couldn't hear iTunes on our PC all the way upstairs let alone over the mixer.

Not having any speakers for my iPod, I came up with a totally ghetto solution and dragged out the boombox my uncle gave me when I was 14.

The picture does not do this justice. This thing is big and heavy! But, even after 21 years it still rocks the bells (Holy shit! Now I feel old).


  1. I have a couple TV's that would go perfectly with that if you want them (because i refuse to move them, again, yep we are moving!!)

  2. We got rid of our huge boombox and I regret it. Even though I do have speakers for my ipod there are many times the boombox would have served the purpose better.

  3. Mmmm. Cookies.

    I had to read this in the Reader because your music thing (Celine Dion) is superimposed over the post. Just FYI.

  4. Wow, I can't believe you still have it. Isn't amazing how far technology has come?

  5. Wow, that thing is huge.
    (That's what SHE said.)

  6. omg, I do believe we are in the same age neighborhood. The only difference is that I dumped my boombox off on a garage sale patron about 10 years ago. ;)


Thank you for visiting and letting me know your thoughts!
