I was a little disoriented when I opened up one of the drawers in my old room and found these:
Then I remembered. My prized possessions from the 1990s teenage years. This is just one drawer full, there are others. Gloria Estafan, New Kids on the Block, MILLI VANILLI (!!!) I don't even have a player for them now but they're still around. I'm sure that the same fate awaits the CDs I now have piled around the place. As it is, iPods, cellphones with mp3s, music through the internet and all sorts of other avenues to listen to the latest tracks are becoming more and more convenient and affordable.
But back to those cassettes? Do you still have any? What would you do with them? Throw them out? What if you don't have CD versions of them? Go download? Do you even want to listen to Vanilla Ice today????
Do you see the mixed tapes in the photo? Those were the craze back then. Make them yourself, get your friends to make them, or copy the ones that your friends have already made. Also, anytime some guy had a crush on you....you're BOUND to get one of those! I even remember one with the guy singing!
