The reel thing




As a child of the eighties I just can’t kick the casette habit. i-Tunes? Huh, what that? CDs? I have about 10 tops. Vinyl? A fair few scratched Transvision Vamp 7-inches and David Bowie albums. But it’s my creaky old tapes that I still play to death – some are twenty-odd years old and still going strong. And it looks like other peeps have a soft spot for casettes if these creations are anything to go by. Transformers, purses, wallets, tape dispenders (geddit?) are all recycled from old well-worn casettes. Check em out here:

    Cassettes were the first type of music format to let us create our personal playlists. And who can forget that perfect tape we spent hours creating for our loved ones?! (I think I just showed a bit of my age)

    I recently discovered a hole box of tapes in my basement. I love the sound of the buttons while recording from the radio – or when the presentator starts talking? Hilarious.

    I love those.
    I too can’t help being sentimental about cassettes. Some of us still have cars with tape players.

    I remember when Chanel did a fabulous black cassette wristlet. I still have some cassettes, but I’m a child of the 90′s and my thing is CDs, but I don’t think they’d look as good as the cassettes do.
