2. Cassette Mix Tapes

I remember spending hours putting together the perfect mix tapes for a particular boy I was interested in. The songs had to be I the right order, with just enough space in between them, and they had to fit on one side, then the other, without cutting off any of the songs. Then there were the liner notes, which had to be written carefully… and if I was feeling particularly artistic, maybe some sketches to go in there, too… now we send playlists or load songs onto iPods, but I miss the mix tapes! John Cusack’s character, Rob, explains this really well in “High Fidelity.”
