1. Last night I had a dream that someone gave me a brand new Discman
    Static
  2. And now I can't get the beautiful image out of my mind
    Static
  3. I remember the three or four I owned throughout middle and high school
    Static
  4. Some were simple in their beauty
    Static
  5. Others more colorful and flashy
    Static
  6. Some were made to be extra rugged
    Static
  7. Regardless, the anti-shock system was clutch
    Static
  8. You could take them on a boat or on a plane
    Static
  9. In a car or on a train
    Static
  10. But my favorite was on the school bus
    Static
  11. Where one of the most miserable parts of the school day could become a time for contemplation and vivid musical daydreams
    Static
  12. It was also sometimes possible to take them on a walk or run
    Static
  13. But again, it depended on your level of anti-shock sophistication
    Static
  14. Oh discman, how I miss your clunky imperfection
    Static
  15. I want to buy a new one of you, but I don't even have most of my CDs anymore
    Static
  16. The only thing I don't miss
    Static
  17. is lugging this bad boy around
    Static
  18. But I'd endure it all over again to get to live one more day in the golden age of the Great Portable Music Machine:
    Static
  19. The Discman
    Static
  20. Behold
    Static
