Why the party? Because I love parties. Since 7th grade, my first themed party was “Flamingo Flamenco.” Did it have anything to do with Flamenco dancing, no? However, this was in the days of Miami Vice. My room was pink and sea foam green, Miami Vice all the way. My 25th and 28th birthdays were […]

After cleaning out the garage, guess what I found? Big contraptions we used to call “ghetto blasters.” Do you believe we called them this without even thinking about it’s name?  I can’t believe these devices are huge. Two foot by ten inches by ten inches were our “portable music solutions.”  With one cd player/tape deck/radio and […]
