Remember mixed tapes? If you’re reading this blog, then chances are you’re old enough to remember them. I was talking with someone yesterday about the process that went into creating those carefully crafted masterpieces of emotional soul-baring.
Picking out the perfect songs… putting them all in order to tell a story… This is when we met… this is our first movie… our first kiss… running out of room mid-way through a song and having to decide which one to cut and redo the mix…
Oh yes, this was a process. An art for some. A mild obsession for others! A sub-standard mixed tape was not an option. Perfection was a must.
I find it a little sad that future generations will never experience this.
