sit and press play...
Along with photographs and records, I have never been able to throw out any of my old tapes. I know I may never play them again but those precious little lumps of plastic have been the soundtrack to my life.
While mine rest happily in boxes throughout the house, I'm sort of happy to see cassettes being given a new lease of life in endless ways. One of the best I've come across is The Nostalgia Chair from ooo my design.
With a walkman attached to its side, the Nostalgic Chair pays a tribute to now obsolete medium of cassette tape, which was the first to introduce mobility to music reproduction as well as the first recording medium that permitted us to create our own personalizad mix tapes.
Long live the Tape! 'Lets Dance' would sound perfect sitting in this chair!
I read a great tweet yesterday which said Lemmy didn't waste any time in sending out party invitations for heaven. The party promoter up there might be interested to read this which came in yesterday afternoon from PPL
