Mix Tape USB – Retro Romantic Nostalgia in The Guise of a C90
Those of you out there of a certain age will be able to recall the romance of putting together a mix tape.
In the Americanised, but still fab, film version of the great book Hi Fidelity – Rob puts the art of the mix tape thus:
“The making of a great compilation tape, like breaking up, is hard to do and takes ages longer than it might seem. You gotta kick off with a killer, to grab attention. Then you got to take it up a notch, but you don’t wanna blow your wad, so then you got to cool it off a notch. There are a lot of rules. Anyway… I’ve started to make a tape… in my head… for Laura. Full of stuff she likes. Full of stuff that make her happy. For the first time I can sort of see how that is done.”
So for those who laugh at tape cassettes why not put your sounds on a USB stick, put the stick inside the ancient-looking cassette tape, then scrawl all over it for that authentic retro vibe?
There’s 6 different designs as well – will the fun ever end?
