I've said little about it, but you really made it to hard to avoid tonight.
I bring art and beauty to the game. I was there to help Axver out during DI 2 when it was on life support. I am the one who always gives positive feedback to people when others just say who they vote for and nothing more. I started the use of covers and World Cup format. I have helped shape the game and you think I am what is wrong with the game?! That's complete bullshit.

Understood, and you're right, you'd probably get some criticism from certain people, but in the end, I guarantee they'd rather have you included with some music they may not prefer rather than not participate at all.

And mainstream, popular songs aren't a bad thing, anyway. They are used all the time.

So did I. Maxell XLII tapes for the win!

Haha, XLII 90

Funny thing is, when I use to make tapes for myself off records, no matter how good I thought it was, after a couple listens, it became too familiar and I had to tape over it

I just liked hearing different songs in different combinations once or twice. Then once I kinda knew what was coming next after a couple listens, it was off with it's head

I'd like to think things are settling down a bit now.

I was the same way, but instead of taping over them, I just bought more tapes. I couldn't ruin my masterpieces.

I think most people have gone to the AIM thing. I sort of suspect no wants to say where to make sure I don't join.

Man, I used to love buying blank cassette tapes. I loved the 120 minute ones even though the sound would get all screwy. The more you could fit on there, the better!

You must have boxes of cassettes somewhere

Oh yes, the 120 minute tapes were great, but always had problems. I eventually never went past 100 minute tapes. You seemed to still get good sound at that length.

They are definitely around here somewhere, and people on this site would be horrified at some of the material to be found on them.

I just did some spring cleaning, and got rid of the last 4 cassettes I had.
I still have a cassette player in my car, which I only use to play my iPod through one of those tape-connector things.

I wouldn't take it personally if it wasn't so constant. A day doesn't go by where people here don't make fun of me. Like I said earlier, I stay because I see the good in the people here even though they treat me so cruelly sometimes.

I used to buy cassette singles all the time back in high school. I think I got rid of most of them, though.

Hey, I have a cassette player in my old Corolla, and use it for the same thing. Who knew something so ancient would become so relevant all of the sudden? It is certainly a hell of a lot better than those damn iTrips...
