You know how I said the other day that the first album I ever liked was Battle of New Orleans by Johnny Horton? Well, I dug out an old cassette player to stick by my computer so I could listen to it nonstop as I surf GT. Only problem is, it ate all the tape within 30 seconds. My mom tried to fix it for me (her fingers are far less stubby than mine), but alas, it was no use.

My childhood is hereby dead, and all I have left to remember it by is the case, with which I feel obliged to build a Johnny Horton shrine in my room.

Cry with me earthman.
I felt that way when me and my brother took down our old tree fort.

Funny though. I was on the outside on a ladder and my brother was whacking the siding with a crowbar. It wasn't working so he decided to kick it off. Bad idea. HIs foot flew through the siding, nailed me in the johnson and knocked me off the ladder. That's mafuggin pain.

Your story of getting kicked in the balls and falling off a ladder brings a smile to my tear-stained eye. Thank you.

Does anyone else think cassettes were the dumbest thing ever invented? I mean, they went from vinyl records to cassettes. WTF?! Cassettes break easily and you have to use fast forward and rewind to get to the songs you want. Fast forward. Rewind. WTF?!?!!

I guess I'm just in the 'blaming' stage. :)

I know how ya feel.
I had a cassette tape of me talking before my voice changed, and my brother used it to record his Kiss album onto.
I was crushed.

Eye smile? Good name for an album. :D

Keep the tape. It may be a shell of it's former self but the sentimental value.

Yeah, I've got it all worked out. I'm gonna stick the case smack-dab in the middle of a heaping pile of the tape itself. Then I'm gonna shellac the whole thing so the tape isn't always flopping about. It's gonna rock. But in a melancholy kind of way.

It's not really a problem anymore. I went in to the city yesterday, and by some odd stroke of luck, HMV actually had a copy on cd! It's some 1990 reissue which has 4 bonus songs tacked on to the end. It's kind of lame, since it's not really the authentic album, but it has all the songs in the proper order, so that's cool.

I also bought a Mamas and the Papas greatest hits cd so I'll never have to listen to any cassette ever again.

+1 to me for thinking ahead.
