Right off the bat let me say that I’m the last person you should come to for tips on décor. What I live in is not too dissimilar to a cave, with a couch, and electricity. My aim here is not to give you a new and exciting way to wow dinner guests. It’s more to help you unleash the beat freak in you so they know the minute they walk in that they’re in the presence of a music junkie. Make sense? To keep from tripping over my thoughts any longer let’s get right into it:
Even in my hovel of an abode, this would look good; I mean just look at it- all that wood. The official name for this gadget is the ‘Floating Record’ and it was imagined, or should we say reimagined, by a Chicago-based startup called Gramovox. Damn, I wish my folks had talked to these guys before naming me. Its pretty, walnut-infused looks aside, this Kickstarter-funded record player is mechanically sound, its makers insist. Only way to find out is to order yours when they hit the market in December.
Zildjian Cymbal Clock
This must be in your living room or bedroom wall by now if you’re really as much of a rock head as you claim to be. These are real Ziljdjian cymbals, not imitations made from god knows what other material. You can actually take the hands out and stick the clock onto your drum kit if you need to. That’s why they cost upwards of $80.
Fender Chopping Board
How much tastier would your salads be if the ingredients were sliced on a guitar-shaped board? I personally would ingest every last bit of onion with this knowledge. And how much more funky would your kitchen look with this unplayable instrument to decorate the backsplash? You can find out for 24 bucks.
Music Note Toilet Handle
You can spread the love of music to your bathroom with this baby. As they take their place on the throne your guests will no longer doubt that you’re a certified music nut. Add a roll of piano key-decorated toilet paper and they’ll be looking for the nearest asylum to send your crazed behind.
Cassette Coffee Table
Now this is a personal favorite. I’ve been accused many times of being of the analog generation, might as well have the furniture to match. Guests will have to watch where they place their cups though. Not throwing an expensive rug beneath this table is a good idea- note to self.
