Cassette Culture

I love cassettes. Some people call them tapes. Either way, they're like gold to me. Since it's summer and Michelle and I are on the yard sale/garage sale/flea market/estate sale/white elephant circuit, I've been keeping my eyes peeled for these little gems.

Pictured: The most compelling cassette image I could find using Google's image search.

It's a good time for cassettes too. Just this past Sunday I stumbled across a surplus of classics, 25 to be exact--from RUN DMC's Raising Hell to Metallica's Master of Puppets--and I only paid 5 bucks for 'em all. The other night I found even more chromium dioxide booty.

"Them don't sell," a colorful and somewhat toothless woman employed at the local Goodwill told me as I took a stack of gold off her hands (AC/DC, DIO, Yngwie Malmsteen, Yaz, ZZ Top, etc.). Oh well, your loss my plump little friend.

After I amass an impressive tape collection, I'm planning to feverishly compose mixtapes--based on themes like metal mania, high school heartbreak, terrible b-sides, and the list goes on.

I'll post some photos of the collection soon. It's only in its toddler stages at the moment... but it's growing, oh it's growing.

Ahhh, good old cassettes. I actually have Raising Hell in my car stereo right now. It's beat to hell, and has long ago lost its case, but it still works! I played the hell out of it and Licensed to Ill, which sadly disappeared during a party at one of my IUP apartments (it was replaced with a CD version)...sigh... Enjoy your finds!

And, don't forget about those innovative mini-cassettes known as "cassingles". No interest in springing for the whole tape? Buy the cassingle and play it over and over and over again. Life is good!

Hi,

Here I am, two years after the fact, surfing by, wondering what happened to your cassette collection.

Did you ever do what you said you were going to do with the tapes? :)
