Sometimes I feel a little outdated, like when I had to explain the lyrics, "Shake it like a Polaroid picture" to my kids. Passe', like a rotary dial phone; obsolete, like a typewriter; bygone, like a cassette tape. But then I remember how freakin' cool those things are; how rare; how they've increased in value with age and grown in charm.
Just think of how that junior high boyfriend sat by the radio for hours with his tape recorder waiting for the perfect songs just for you. You can only find that kind of sentimentality in Train songs today. That's why j'adore the "I want to make you a mix tape." hand-calligraphied card in the collection.
This local Etsy treasury on the left is oozing with rare archaic allure. Thanks for shopping locally!
The blog will be a little quieter this weekend. If you need me, I'll be "In a van... down by the river!"
