  1. I am very seriously considering getting the deluxe version. It would look great on top of my speakers, which are also black and blue.

    I need help justifying spending $187+shipping on it though, considering it’s worth slightly more than my stereo system. I figure if I keep telling myself that I’m in a good financial position compared to people who spend their money on drugs, alcohol, and gambling then I’ll grow the balls to impulse-buy this.
