Remembering the mix tape

Timesunion.com has a great article called Remember mix tapes? Just hit rewind about those great mix tapes we used to make and that are now probably filed away in some box in your garage these days (at least mine are). Thurston Moore has just written what looks like a very cool book called Mix Tape : The Art of Cassette Culture which talks about this lost art. Will CD-Rs ever really replace the mix tape? Are those of us who look back at our TDK cassettes with nostalgia just boring old farts? Probably but if you are looking for the closest thing to time travel play a couple of your old mix tapes (if you still can?) and think back as to what motivated you to put THAT on a tape!
Later.
