I don't remember making mixtapes back when I am still collecting cassette records. I am not very good with recording. I just let other friends make their own and I just ask for a copy. This is why when people ask me about their favorite songs, I can easily answer. I know what they are listening too in grade school until they went to college. Even with those I am not really close with, I know their favorites. I can answer these kinds of questions even when I am sleeping. It's a cool hobby and those were good times.
I miss those days when we are exchanging mixtapes with our closest friends. It's an era sweeter than vinyl, I think. Nowadays people are still able to have their favorite songs pressed. No one uses cassette tapes anymore. I think it's cuter. The only problem is it breaks easily. Gone are the days when it's the cool thing. I think having to carry an oversized stereo cassette player is iconic. Even barbie dolls still has it. It's supposed to be in the 60s or 80s. I wonder how old are they now.
