PS...I'm getting ready to erase these reels. The one I was playing yesterday was ok, but I just heard Captain & Tennille singing "Muskrat Love" and I almost lost my lunch. Sorry if that is your favorite. Now Gino Vannelli is starting to sing "I Just Wanna Stop." So I'm going to grant his wish.
I change my mind - 8 tracks were good for some things!
“Photography is a complex and fluid medium, and its many factors are not applied in simple sequence. Rather, the process may be likened to the art of the juggler in keeping many balls in the air at one time!”
Ansel Adams, from the introduction to The Negative - The New Ansel Adams Photography Series / Book 2
Well, I had hoped this could sit here un-noticed, but that isn't the case. So. I need to sell it and sombody needs to enjoy it. That's just the way this story goes and as much as it pains me to do this, I'm giving somebody in the DFW area the chance to pick this up for $60. Sixty. Sesenta. Soixante. Sechzig. I could keep going, but this isn't a language lesson so much as a sacrifice. $60
Please send me an email or pm if you're interested. I'll probably be out of pocket most of tomorrow, but back Saturday.
Haha hey now 8 track sound was way better than cassette's as I've read just like beta max was better than VHS, does anyone know why 8 track lost? I know betamax lost because of the porn industry, but why 8 track?
I don't think it had better sound than cassette after a while, as the endless tape rubbed over itself as it ran. I had a good deck though, and the sound was good enough for the car. It did change tracks 4 times during its run (4X2 stereo tracks) which took getting used to. But cassettes had to flipped over, so I guess that's a wash. Two things I hated about cassettes though-- one was when they would start squeaking as they ran, usually as a result of being left in a hot car, and the other was the frequency with which they would get eaten by the tape deck.
I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.
