I'm not sure how many people have been paying attention. Cassettes are making a comeback. Anyone going to be buying any? I basically left cassettes behind 10+ years ago. I kept most of my collection though. I bought a Sting cassette just to see how good the quality is. I will likely be buying a few more as time goes on. As long as it's reasonably priced. The new Megadeth is $23. Which seems a bit steep.

Nah. It's just 80s nostalgia fueled by Stranger Things and Guardians of the Galaxy. Why buy a physical media version that sounds slightly less good each time you play it? I have the same issue with vinyl. Sticking to cds. It is also funny that vinyl is 3-4 x more expensive than cds and even cassettes are about 25% more expensive than cds.

Yeah I won't be returning to cassettes , I still have all my old ones in a box somewhere , but have never ever felt the need to hoke em out , it used to drive me mad when the feckin' thing nipped in the player even after all the head cleaning and such :doh:  then you'd have to try and find it again...only to shit yourself everytime you loaded it up...in case it happened again...so no thanks...I too will stick with my cd's.

I'm into photography and every time I see dudes shooting with film I always just wonder why. I hear their explanations, but I just wonder why? I would have the same thoughts about cassette tapes. I have wonderful memories of tapes and walkmans and cars with cassettes, but we have moved on, for very, very good reason.

Some of your photos I seen breath taking.

Any new car sold from 2015 on, you have used a USB stick. Or can spend expensive buy a CD player

    • Cool song. If ADV is strictly hired to play keys, it should be fine. 
    • Ooh, nice!  I'll have to revisit the first album. 
    • Ugh... I hate you so much. You know I hate you, right? ;} I've never seen either iteration. 
    • These are sounding pretty good.

    • Imagine a world where Andrew Wood didn’t die and Mother Love Bone was still creating awesome music!
    • “My Icarian Flight” featuring the one and only ADV 😜  
    • lol, this was my thought process too. What about Confess?! I like both bands, but not at the expense of one of them.
