This is how they roll in Queens, NYC, apparently. Step up your game, Seattle.

i saw a guy biking with a boombox on his back a few weeks ago, but that is no comparison at all.

Can we all agree that Seattle is it's own city with it's own quirks and that shit this dude's trying to do would lose it's cool factor on our streets.

It would just be another, "Oh, great...more transplants or people who worship them."

To pull off what he's doing over here in the Sea, that dude would actually need to step up his game. He'd need to be way more eccentric, blooded out in a crushed velour sweatsuit with a matching umbrella and church shoes for no reason, he couldn't get away with that rig his pushing either, he'd need to outfit a Segway with spinners and an iDock/CD combo pushing 200watts, he'd need to be selling local rap CD-rs and have a fucking Shih-Tzu named Muscles. He'd also need to be about 25 years older for it all to work.

I know because I've seen exactly that here and it made perfect sense to me when I saw it. That dude is Seattle and he shits all over any notion of Queens dude here looking like anything but a lazy bitch with a soldering iron and a dream.

That dude's Queens cool, but he ain't Seattle cool.

Get off the rest of the world's nuts. For real.

Oof--pwned by someone who doesn't know how to use its.

Do you have photographic evidence of this amazing Seattle Segway-modifier, Squatch?

When I was living in Houston, a couple friends of mine customized a green rolling trashcan into what they called the Taz-maniac Soundsystem. They would bring it along with them, and throw dance parties in the craziest places (have you ever danced in the grassy median of a 16-lane major US interstate for hours in the middle of the night?!). Features: Battery-operated, Discman/iPod compatible, sub woofer, six 8" woofers, and large removable sink-like plastic bin that protected the stereo equipment below and provided a place to dispose of beer cans. No post-party clean-up needed. Seattle needs one of these.
