Gosh I haven't done my own meme in months. I'm just not in much of an meme-y mood these days, but I think I have a good topic this week.
Tell us about a music related item that is now obsolete that you miss.
I really miss cassette tapes. Sure they were very disposable, but they were really fun when you wanted to put something together for a friend. Oh how I loved the mixtape. It was much nicer than the mix CD and it could hold more songs. (Unless you are making an mp3 CD)
I used to make mixtapes all the time. Any time I went in the car, I had my walkman and about 30 cassettes. I guess it makes a case for iPods etc, but making playlists just isn't the same. There's nothing fun about it.
I also loved my boombox. Not many of those around these days.
CDs are almost obsolete now.
What I find funny is that vinyl is making a comeback in some areas.
However the vinyl albums you will find today cost about $8.00 more than the CD.
I've come to the conclusion that when it comes to the music industry the consumer is supposed to bend over and take it.
You guys know the drill. Play along in the comments or in your journal. This meme is created for my site Music Memoirs. Feel free to go there and check out my other weekly memes and play along.
