    This just in! Built in 1880.

    They did the same with Marlon Brando's Omaha home years ago.
    It was on the waterfront, they made him an offer he couldn't refuse.

    I would like it to be saved BUT , if you ask anybody under the age of 40 if they know who he was...and if they care about it :# How's the neighborhood?

    I LOVE the architectural Fret Work adornments. I having band-sawed similar Fret Works for my home and cottage. I copied a pattern from an old house towards downtown Wilmington 30+ years ago. I have A LOT of triangular boards with my pattern maybe drawn on them that I've saved for 30 years or so. I had a band saw, sold it, bought a newer one, broke it moving it, but fixed it a year ago. I will cut some new ones soon. That'll be ANOTHER project taken off that old to-do list I'm burning through. :p;)

    Now if it was Snoop Dog's boyhood home... :);) Yea, Snoop Dog could save it himself if it was his, being he's still alive.
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.

    A mini system from Technics.

    Is it portable? Since it's a mini it's got to be right?

    Whoa. I remember the Technics minicomponents -- but ne'er saw a reel to reel deck. I am guessing they were never expressly imported to the US (?).

    @pitdogg2 No, the minicomponents were a thing in the very late 1970s/early 80s. Not meant to be portable, just space-efficient.
    I had one of the lower-end Technics minicomponent cassette decks (dump find) for a while. It was actually pretty darned nice, but I didn't have a need for it, so I gave it away (I think). Maybe I even sold it, but I rather doubt it. :#

    I bought one of these new, Dolby B and DBX. Bought the wired remote too.
    Very low profile. But not their real thin higher end black ones with gold lettering.
    I think I bought it from International Hi-Fi Distibutors in Baltimore.

    My brother still has it.

    We've all seen the plethora of pharmaceutical commercials on TV these days, but today I found a pharma ad inside the gatefold of an old album cover. Appropriately, the ad was for an antidepressant inside a blues album.

    Yes, a little presumptive to think that anyone buying/listening to a blues album is clinically depressed.
