    will soon be posting pictures of a few things i've gotten recently (and in the last year or two) that i haven't been able to listen to because my tape deck needed its band replaced.

    however, i just now tried to work on it and could not for the life of me figure out how to get the motor assembly out to where i could replace the band, so i sadly closed it back up and am trying not to be too bummed. will have to ask my dad for some assistance, i guess. :/

    While I grew up with cassettes tapes myself, I was also far too young to get into music at the time, and by the time I did, CDs have already taken over. However, I have lots of fond memories recording my CDs onto cassette. I never enjoy hearing the tape hiss sound. I also had no idea about the other types of cassettes at all either, and am so happy that I came across these videos, which would seem to be very appropriate for this thread.





    You also could probably say the same about vinyl, but what I sometimes like about cassettes is that it forces me to listening to an album all the way through when chilling out to it, as opposed to getting tempted to skip around. Sure, you can pick up the needle, or rewind and fast-forward, but for me, it's more of a deterrent to jump around the album and just go with the flow. When the time comes, just for the sake of nostalgia, I think I'll get a portable cassette player, portable CD player and a boombox with a cassette player and a CD player.

    My favorite cassettes to get where Maxell and TDK, at 120 minutes long, at 1 hour on both sides, since most albums can fit on each side. It was certainly fun to have The Fragile and Ghosts I-IV on one cassette as a result, and it was definitely my hobby prior to CD burning.
