Mix Tape

Discussing cool and uncool album covers is soooooo 2004. The good word these days is all about cassette tapes and our retro love for them.

That's why Cassette Jam '05 is so much fun. It's a hoot looking over all the different style of tapes over the years and finding the ones that you used. I bought several hundred dollars of these Maxell tapes during the 80's and 90's. Gave away about half of them, have about a quarter of them in boxes in my basement and the rest are scattered under the front seats of various cars in scrap yards in DC and NJ.

Along these lines, 11 a.m. Air Raid had a great post up last month regarding the book Thurston Moore edited called Mix Tape: The Art of Cassette Culture.

Cool site.

I never used anything but Maxell to make my mixtapes. I tried Sony and TDK, but they just didn't measure up to the mighty Maxell XLII 90.
