Like most people, I constantly need to be listening to music. I find that when I’m biking, I get most compelled to stop.. and just start busting moves. Unfortunately, boom boxes aren’t that easy to find in your local pawn shop anymore. They are often swept up by kids cooler than you, with a more analog skill set. Anyway, I’ve found some variations to the boom box-bike combination that I think solve my need of a relocatable and movable dance floor.

Gotta get that.. boom boom boom - box!

BMX break beats on the streets

I think this operates off an iPad...

Now, the party really is wherever I am.

Jeremy sent this over today. If you ever wondered what went on in American frontiers, you don’t have to wonder anymore. The answer is: SUPER AWESOME. Check this:

I am so hard and awesome. Musician William Brown

According to my calculations, I mean, the calculations of Google, that’s about 230 miles. No small trip. This was made in the summer of 1896. There’s so much that is rad about this, and ‘merican. If you don’t believe me, listen to the music this man William Brown was probably humming on his little bike ride.

All I need now is a mountie hat.
