Something to Get You Hyped: The Return of the Boombox

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.
