cassette tape culture

For me, the varied aesthetics of cassette tapes have always been more satisfying and memorable than the sterile features of cds. Personalizing them was fun. Drawing on the cover. Scratching in symbols. Using gold or silver paint markers to make them stand out. Tapes may not be used for mass music consumption anymore but they will not go quietly into the night.
