Yeah. And those little yellow 45 record thingies.

Been an extraordinarily long day. I’m weary. I feel old. And then I stumble across this:

I had an old boombox that loved to eat tapes. I found putting an eraser end on the back of the pencil helped the grippiness immensely.

So yeah, I get the connection.

Found by way of NewMexiKen and source is here.

    haha good one! You know Borders is going out of business…I think books will be an antique too.

      Sandy – I know! That just makes me sad. The local Borders here sold New Mexico Magazine too! No other store does. Sad.

    Oh man. I hated winding up eaten tapes. And ever after that, that section of the cassette sounded like you were listening to it while driving on a washboard road.

      Alan – Washboard road, lol! That’s for sure! And at that part of the tape, there was always a prayer to the gods of electronics….”please don’t eat my tape…please don’t eat my tape….”
