Awwwwww, crap, I’m old. I knew the relationship between the two items on sight.
PS: Do they even sell cassette tapes anymore? They must.
Ugh; always knew I was old.
And, yes, they still do sell tapes. If for no other reason than they never figured out how to make a sound recording device that used CDs…
Yes you are, but so am I.
I remember rebuilding 8-tracks (and when you still could get a brand-new stereo that used them).
I remember checking to make sure you had the right pump, leaded or unleaded (and having both kinds of car in the driveway at the same time).
I remember the little ‘contrast screen’ accessory they used to sell for B&W sets.
Omni with staples.
Digital watches that cost $300 (non-inflation adjusted)… because they were digital!
AM radio in cars. And actual music on AM radio.
Beer cans made of steel.
Paper tape (for computers to mangle).
Typing my dissertation with carbon copies.
Being old sure has brought a lot of good things along with it.
You know, Amazon had this cool computer program that allows you to convert VHS to DVD and Cassettes to CDs. But I never saw anything about converting 8-tracks. And I knew I was old as soon as I saw the cassette.
Hey, how can I be old when I’m not even 30 yet? I knew that in a split second. Spent an awful lot of time as a kid doing it.
Someone could know that and not be old– they might’ve seen WALL-E and been very attentive.
Carbon copies… wow, that brings me back.
