Are there any observances or traditions for International Boombox Day?   Should I smooch my boomer?

I've heard it called a lot of things, but "smoochin' the boomer" is a new one on me.

 

Boy, the world sure is changing fast... :-D

So what do we do now? Are we all going to be tele-ported to the same place at the same time? :w00t: Wouldn't that be cool - 100% of Boomboxery.com members with all their boxes at one super meet! :dj-party: :dj-party: :dj-party: :dj-party: :dj-party: :dj-party: :dj-party: :dj-party: :dj-party:

I'm lovin' the scale upon which you're dreamin', James...love, love, lovin' it to death! 

:dj-party:

If only it were so...please, someone "make it so."  

Every day should be IBD, life would be so grand!  :-D  I wished every day were Christmas when I was a little tyke.  It's kinda like that, :blush:

 

Just to loosen up my arm, I took a boombox with me "downtown" here in Bremerton, WA (pop. 38,000) and you should have seen the looks.  One woman walked by, took one look, shook her head and said "Characters Wanted."    :lol:  It's a good thing she had a smile on her face (and I was in a great mood, being 2 days until IBD) 'cause she could have eaten an M-90!

 

Just kidding!  I would never do that to one of my babies... ;-)  :w00t:

 

On a lighter note, I hope it's okay to "borrow" the IDB logo for a few days.  All in the name of promotion, of course.  :blush:

Ive been outside today doing some light yard work while listening to the Ashes (cricket) on my JVC 656. Then i hooked up my Sony FH-7 and was blasting a good mix of rock and indy.

I then blow the froth of a couple to a 60's soul soundtrack. Sank a few more and have now come indoors as i have a headache.

Im sure this is dehydration from the sun and the yard work.

The neigbours are probably glad ive come in, dont they know its IBD ???

Spent the day jamming the boombox that started the bug for me back in 1981...the JVC M70. Looks and sounds as good today as it did back then. I have several new additions to my collection and some more on the way in celebration of IBD. Once they all arrive I will take pics and post 'em... :-D

Spent IBD reading Patti Astor's memoir, sipping spirits, listening to the Dub Club's three new albums through the 550, M90, M70, and GF-999, and taking pictures. Life is good! :)

Spent a sunny afternoon of IBD down at a park with my wife Jenny, our 3 kids and of course, the GF-9494.

A very relaxing afternoon actually.  :cool:

Spent a lovely day with my wife, Patricia, at Green Mountain, WA.  It's midway between the Cascades & the Olympics, with outstanding views of both.

I spent my Boombox Day actually ON the radio! I did a 2 hour in studio interview on www.KOSHERMETAL.com and played the two new songs I just recorded.

Started out the day by organizing all my cassettes, then finished out the night by blasting the tunes through the JVC..

The batteries are still going strong after about a month of constant use!

I do.  Don't know what it will be tomorrow, but it will involve a product made with Washington-grown hops...the world's finest!  :beer2:

My profile pic is, I believe, from the 2014 edition of this world-renowned holiday.

To all brothers, those departed, those who don't see eye to eye, those who contribute in all kinds of different ways. Let us all enjoy today together, as one family and especially in remembrance of the forefathers, the creators and the forward thinking folks on the streets that drove their requirement.

Mushy stuff over, happy Boombox Day everyone!!!!!!!!!!!
