So, I was watching a thing on the Science Channel tonight, and one of the women on the show was wearing this great boombox necklace; you can see a picture here.
I've been searching online for one like it, but surprisingly, I haven't had any luck. The ones I have found lack the details that I really want: I don't want just a little charm; I don't want one that hangs from one corner (I love the way the original is attached to the chain at both corners); I don't want plastic. I would really prefer silver, at least in color. Help?

I'm looking for the MP3-player equivalent of the boom-box, a player that has built-in amp and speakers. Can you recommend one? [more inside]

By 1989 the boombox had established a fairly stable place in the pantheon of pop culture cinema, with the releases of both Do the Right Thing
and Say Anything
. Can you remember seeing (and hearing!) the machine in earlier films? I'm especially interested to learn its earliest appearances.

A friend of mine recently went to work for a construction team. Their current music selection on their field boom box is limited to CDs of Journey's Greatest Hits
, Led Zeppelin 3 and 4
, and Mötley Crüe Shout at the Devil.
"Tragically," they recently lost their Huey Lewis and the News Sports
CD as well.
We (mostly) agree that these are perfectly fine records, but there's only so much of this one can stand in a 40-hour week.
I was going to help out my buddy track down some new music, but all I'm coming up with is Bob Seger, Eagles, and Steve Perry's Street Talk
solo lp. What construction-and-hard-work-friendly full-length releases could be introduced to this stack of CDs to make both my friend and his co-workers happy? He works with men in their late 30s and early 40s, so nothing too outré (No Lightning Bolt or Hair Police.)
