Can we talk about boomboxes for a minute? We miss them. We miss the dent they left on our shoulders. We miss how mobile they were while also making a statement. When we walk into a room with our iPod, no one seems to realize that we've come to party. So kudos to whichever street-level Michelangelo gave us this gift, spotted just down the street from those bad-ass pin-ups. All hail Miami's graffiti scene.
Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
