These guys who carry around their boomboxes usually just annoy me. Being so obnoxious as to play your music loudly and deliberately inflict it upon those around you. Same sort of thing with people playing music on their cell phone and a slightly lesser degree with those walkie talkie phones (those I’ve been told are because using it in walkie talkie mode doesn’t use minutes). Then I saw this guy who had a boombox, but it wasn’t a normal obnoxiously large one, it was a fairly conservatively sized one. In that case it looked sort of cute, and I thought up this comic on the spot. It’s like “This is my music! I likes it a lot, and I bought this so I could hold it in my arms and cradle it.” At least that’s what I thought it looked like once I thought about it enough.
