The Daily Ping

Somehow, Ryan has written over 1 million Pings; Paul, just 60.

Cassettes

When was the last time you listened to an audio cassette? Bought one?

Since I’m underway archiving my cassettes into a digital format, I often listen to my tapes after I’ve digitized them. The last time I actually listened to a tape live, though, was probably about a year ago. And, not coincidentally, it was also the last tape I’d purchased: a honest-to-god hip-hop mixtape released only on cassette. I listened in our 2001 Subaru Outback, which has both a cassette deck and a CD player.

Believe it or not, I’ve more recently listened to an 8-track. Shortly after buying a beauty on ebay, I fired up a tasty Engelbert Humperdinck tape (who, by the way, is still alive and almost collaborated with The Gorillaz).

College was probably the last time, but only because I was recording skimmer tapes of my radio shows, taping over old Jerry Falwell sermons.

Ah, memories.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
