    I plan on making an old-school cassette mixtape, with only songs from 1994.

    Do it.

    Take pictures. It'll be awesome.

    I've made a mix that was formatted to be fitted onto a 60min cassette, a pal wanted something they could output to cassette so I made it... I still don't miss pressing play/pause/record button combos.

    The mixtape was so much fun to make back in the day. The CD mix just wasn't the same--with all the songs burning at once--the whole "labor of love" element is lost. You'd spend the whole friggin' day making those mixtapes, thinking what song to put next as you were playing the current one from CD (or radio) to tape.

    Back in the 90s I made... oh... probably close to 50 tapes. Even hand-scanned (Logitech) (flat bed scanners cost real money back then) World of Darkness imagery from book to use as artwork (a precious few tapes got themselves reworked to be CD versions). CDs took a while longer for me to get into due to the prices of CD burners and blank media (and of course, using shitty quality MP3 wasn't ideal either)... but basically since 2005 I've formatted everything for either 70min or 80min depending on which I have to burn to. I make backups of my mixes and give a bunch away to local friends who aren't really into streaming (where I post everything nowadays).

    I made a mixtape over the last two days. It's just for me, but the intention is to go for a ride, back to 1994. Every song is from that year, except for "Low" by Cracker, which was recorded in 1993 but was a big hit in 1994. These songs were kind of in the air, all around me when I was 14/15 years old. It was a lot of fun making the cassette tape, took me back, hadn't made one in 20 years.

    Side A:
    Backwater- Meat Puppets
    No Excuses- Alice In Chains
    House a Home- Mark Lanegan
    Past the Mission- Tori Amos
    Closer- Nine Inch Nails
    My Wave- Soundgarden
    She's My Machine- David Lee Roth
    Longview- Green Day
    Sabotage- Beastie Boys
    Liar- Rollins Band
    Seether- Veruca Salt
    Side B:
    Interstate Love Song- Stone Temple Pilots
    Doll Parts- Hole
    Low- Cracker
    Loser- Beck
    Bull in the Heather- Sonic Youth
    The Man Who Sold the World- Nirvana
    I Alone- Live
    Self-Esteem- The Offspring
    I'm Broken- Pantera
    Train of Consequences- Megadeth
    Better Man- Pearl Jam
    Feel the Pain- Dinosaur Jr.

    I plan on making a second volume of songs from 1994 over the next few days.
