    Default $809.00 for a ghetto blaster. who knew...

    randomly i decided to run ghetto blaster through ebay and got 46 hits - which is about 45 more than i expected. i figured we'd gotten too politically correct and hadn't heard the term in years. anyway, at the top of the heap was this toshiba wx-1.

    I remember that thing! A kid down the street from me, his older brother had one. Then again, his older brother was a known drug dealer and he had lots of stuff including 3 Corvettes, two sport bikes and all kinds of jewelery. He used to sit out in his driveway with that thing and blast music all day and all night long while his friends rode their skateboards and smoked pot on the half pipe he built in his front yard. They were not cheap (as in expensive) those ghetto-blasters, not cheap at all.

    You guys haven't been to the Boombox Museum?

    I am still waiting on Sony to produce the Boodo Khan boombox (named after the ultimate Sony Walkman). Check out those APM speakers with the extra thick rubber surrounds for the pound bass.

    I had one made by Magnavox, it had all the cool lights on it, with the extra wide shoulder strap. Pump up the Run DMC please.

    Wow, that Boombox museum just brought back a ton of memories. Allot of older guys I partied with had some of the boomboxes on there. Thats crazy.

    $809.00??!! That's a bargain.

    How about $1,525 for a Panasonic boombox

    Anybody remember Radio Raheed's "rig" from Do The Right Thing? It took 20 DD batteries...
    I never had it like this where I grew up. But I send my kids here because the fact is you go to one of the best schools in the country: Rushmore. Now, for some of you it doesn't matter. You were born rich and you're going to stay rich. But here's my advice to the rest of you: Take dead aim on the rich boys. Get them in the crosshairs and take them down. Just remember, they can buy anything but they can't buy backbone. Don't let them forget it. Thank you.Herman Blume - Rushmore
