RIP Walkman


Sony has announced the production death of the Walkman.
A sad day for those of us who were once masters of the mix tape.
The passing of an era.
I like my mp3 player, but play lists are not as emotionally satisfying as mix tapes.
You could hold a cassette in your hands.
You could make custom covers for them.
I spent a lot of time with cassettes playing in stereos, boom boxes and Walkmans (Walkmen).
Play lists are so sterile and file-like.
Oh well....
