Putting the Horse Before the Cart

Putting the Horse Before the Cart

I almost bought an old skoolie today, the one you see above. I figured it would be a kick-ass way to start my listening tour. And then I ask myself if I'm not coming a little unhinged, putting the cart before the horse so to speak.
