Trashing an Aiwa Sound System
Author: Gabriel TorresDate: May 14, 2006 - 7:42 AM PST

After setting my Siemens cell phone on fire and smashing my DVD player using Tae Kwon Do moves, I promised to destroy that famous Aiwa shelf system where its CD player stops working after some time.

I met at least five close friends that had an Aiwa system with this problem, all of them promised to give me their systems so we could build a bowling, but they backed out, as they were using the stereo as an amplifier for their PCs. Only a very brave friend, who, by the way, works here with us, decided to donate his Aiwa stereo to us for breaking it.

We thought about several possibilities for our ”V for Vendetta“ session. Set it on fire was out of question, since I had already set my cell phone on fire. The best idea we had was buying a hockey mask, getting a chainsaw and making a Jason ”Friday the 13th“ Voorhees photo session. But were the heck can we arrange a chainsaw in this concrete jungle where I live?

We decide to make a beautiful Brazilian Voodoo with it, see how beautiful it was on Figure 1. The set was perfect: seven red candles, popcorn, cachaça (sugar cane alcohol) and a beautiful picture of Saint George. But even this didn’t fix the stereo.

So, let’s go to the beach...

Oh yeah. It wasn’t fun. It didn’t break like we wanted: just the top cover broke. Wow, look at this, a soccer goal! Perfect! Let’s hang the bandit!

Well, on Figures 7 and 8 you can see a Tae Kwon Do kicking technique that due to space restrictions was left of my Tae Kwon Do demonstration when I trashed my DVD player. We are talking about the jumping side kick, a.k.a. Tuyu (or Timyo) Yop Tchagui.

Ah, now we are talking, the front panel went outer space! But what else can we do with it? Shall we go to the water?

How about building a sand castle?

Before anyone asks, I threw the trashed stereo in the trashcan after this session.

Who will be my next victim? My lousy cordless phone from Uniden that doesn’t recognize the handsets anymore, even after resetting it zillion times with all possible ways, following the orientation from their support staff. They said the phone is really broken.
