Here's why I like this silver Ghetto Blaster Watch: it's useful. Not only does it represent a moment from my youth (double decks! Holler!), but it also tells me the time. Accessories that can do more than one thing — in this case, look cool and keep me on top of the passing hours — always get a positive nod from me. But to every high there is a low, and here's why I don't like this silver Ghetto Blaster watch: the price. It's $234! Way too rich for my blood, but still totally crave-worthy, especially if you've got a retro mixtape jewelry collection already started.
It's pretty hard not to love a baby onesie — especially when there are so many irresistible geek designs to choose from. Well, if you've got a little one in your life that you love buying onesies for, this trio gift pack of Punk Rock Retro Onesies ($36) is as hip as they get. Within one gift box, you'll get a lime onesie with a ghetto blaster, a white one with headphones, and a black one with Space Invaders on the front. Sizes range from 3 to 18 months.
Everyone needs to eat, so why not cover up that vintage hand-me-down table you have shoved in your dining room with some geeky placemats like the ones I found on Holy Cool?
For about $16 dollars for a pack of six (plus tax and shipping of course), you can get your own set of record player, cassette, or old-school ghetto blaster placemats and stay totally entertained during dinner. Unfortunately, they don't actually function as working gadgets, so you'll just have to pretend and break your mom's rule of no singing at the table.
I love me a mix tape (obvs), so imagine my excitement when I saw this old school style Ghetto Blaster Tote on Karmaloop. Not only is it totally vintage chic, but it's also affordable! For 45 bucks, you can rock this bag all the way downtown — and it actually works!
Yup, there's a pair of working speakers in this bad boy. Just plug in any MP3 player and proceed to pump up the volume! So, do you love it as much as I do?
This past weekend I was out and about in San Francisco and saw this geekalicious musician along the Embarcadero. I don't think he saw me under those thick bottle cap glasses, but he did strum a couple awesome tunes on his guitar while rocking a one-of-a-kind cardboard ghetto blaster - on his head. It was a feat to behold. The boombox was fully pimped out with an antenna, speakers, a radio tuner, tone and balance controls, graphic equalizers and a cassette deck, which just so happen to double as his oxygen mask. If you click on the gallery pictures below you can check out the back of ghetto blaster and see more details. Hint: It includes a power cord!
