Yeah, well, most of them.

Theres about 15-20 missing from those shots that I didn't bring outside due to being at work or my repairers, and theres 8 or so I've bought since then.

Large effort dragging em all out... LARGE effort. Doing this years collection pic is going to be a real struggle. Time to rope in some more mates for it I think.

Thanks, Freddie!

And thanks guys!

I'd love to get some work that is a true 80s graphic, but geometric stuff doesn't transfer well to skin.
I'm always on the look out though!



Rock On.

Thanks guys!

Dartbarlow: I listen to a lot of dreamwave/nu-disco, which is essentally new music that tries to sound like it's 1984.

Here's a good sampling from this week's mixtape I made:

http://soundcloud.co... ... -8-11-side

I find this stuff works exceptionally well on all my radios, but especially the Taira!

okay cool ...i get it ....at first i was thinking some Pink Floyd "welcome to the machine'....
maybe checkout >>> Ultravox ....song >>>"sleepwalk" which IS that 80's nu-wave .

i recently saw the movie Collateral in which i heard a soundtack...and had to run to my
guitar to play it ....lol...i like the melody lines....

then seached a bit and found it on the uTube >>> "Ready Steady Go" (Korean Style) by Paul Oakenfold
great track !

BOOMIN' AND BLAMIN' BOOMBOXES FOREVER !

I am not for painting any box that could be saved and cleaned but you had no choice with that box before hand so I give mad props dude !!! You saved her !!!! She would have been gutted and her body discarded !!! Very nice work ! I got one that was painted a long time ago and it doesn't look any good compared to yours

Nice dude

Thanks Kaboomer!

It'd have to be a LOT of money for me to consider selling her.
If someone offered me $2000 or so though I'd definitely think about it.
The things is, I'd just use the money to get another M90 and do probably the same paint job.

After living with the Taira for the last 9 months or so I'm still really happy with the designs I did, I was scared that
after the initial novelty wore off that I'd be wanting to repaint or redesign, but I'm still 100% happy with her!



Rock On.

You should be proud of her, that is pop culture at it's best. This box is way worth 2k + due to the fact that it truly is art !
I would even consider having a nice display case made so she stays dust free. Very artistic flair you have sir, I wouldn't change a thing !
