Power of the mix tape

U know you have made them, recieved them.
Certain sensational stimulation coenciding one song into the next. Vamping out space filling every extension of wound tape. Tryn to fynd that short trak to cram in at the end.

The technique of knowing just when to hit pause and pressing it just so eliminating glips and whirs of the merger.

No computer involvement and listening to each song as the tape gets encoded.

That one mixtape that you listened to so many times it wears thin. Repairing kinks pulling out slack and rewinding with pencil How Awesome was that!

Got an interesting mixtape tale?

Back in the day!!!

Ahhhhh yeah I remember the days when I had no money for music. I would find old cassette tapes that I could record off of and listen to the radio for my favorite songs. I would record them, and would start my own mix with my dual deck ol' school boombox. I would spend hours in my room on weekends trying to get the right beats and lyrics to flow. At the time I thought it was the sh*t! Now to think back it was low quality cheap entertainment. I wanted to be a DJ so bad, but that never happened. Just one of those childhood memories of mine. Now I have a Zune player and I do not mix anything. I want to though. but technology has taken over and is way more expensive. So I wait for the DJ to mix something good for me to listen to.

trying to remember how many dang mixed tapes I made back in the day. *L* I remember making one for my mom on her b-day or mother's day. It was an old azz recorder and I actually taped it from her albums. So I had this recorder next to the speakers and would try to stop the recorder quick and then change albums, etc. ROFL. It was all loud with a backnoise of humming.....she was all "Oh I love it!" Poor moms.

I remember trying to record the songs off the radio and getting peeved when the stupid DJs would start talking at the end of the song.

I remember sitting there waiting like 45 mins of bad songs, commercials and annoying djs waiting for the song I needed to come on. The worst was if the phone rang or I got distracted and missed it. I think the fine art of mixed tape making died when napster came out and cd burners got cheap
