New Years Resolutions

Firebrox's 2012 New Years Resolutions

1. Move house

Firebrox is presently living in a garage in Basingstoke - although it's a roomy and comfortable garage with all mod cons (electricity, power tools, wireless internet), it's a long way from all his friends in London. So, resolution number one is to find a new place to live. He's looking for about 4 foot by 9 foot of space, 24 hour access, electricity, somewhere near Hyde Park. Can't afford much rent but will pay share of bills

2. Lose weight

Although he's managed to shed 15kg already in the run-up to Christmas by making the second speaker optional, Firebrox is still carrying a bit of flab. Specifically

  • his power amp weighs in at almost 2kg and could be replaced with a much lighter (and cooler, and more efficient) Class D amp like the ones that 41hz sell. If it's sufficiently more efficient this might even mean we could shed one of the two batteries as well - another 7kg
  • the power amp is fed by a car head unit, which has many features we don't need - in fact, the only thing we really do need there is a switch to select the input source, and a volume control. It could easily be replaced with a small portable mixer.

3. Do more street skates

Injury and other engagements means Firebrox hasn't managed more than one skate since the summer of 2011. He's missing his friends

4. Get a job

Firebrox needs pocket money to fund his new toys (above) and is looking for work. If you'd like to recruit him for an event (he comes with a trained babysitter who will ride him and take care of him) please have a look at our Bookings page to see what's involved.
