This is called the Tapecast because last night, for the first time in about ten years, I made a mixtape. Because of the van having a tape player there is actually a point to making these bloody things now, so we got hammered and listened to records all night (again), only this time I recorded them all onto a C-90! There is something so stupidly fascinating about making tapes in the first place, but there is certainly something surreal in resurrecting what genuinely was dead technology. It is far from easy to actually buy blank tapes these days. I ended up recording over a shite old one I had to hand, and there is only a limited supply of ones hanging around which I would be happy to tape over. It was bloody fun though, so I think it might well happen again!
