Tape from a shop

Post by Commie_User »

A 50 pence copy of Munch Mania brought back that 'high street' feel of buying Commodore software. Brings back memories of the village shop cassette rack, buying Commodore Format at WH Smith or even Retro Gamer for that matter.

Pristine condition too. Such memories go well with the bags of 'old' sweets they've started to make again, such as the little foam bananas and shrimp, fizzy flying saucers or the chewy beer bottles.

And here's where these two things cross: http://eshop.chocolateape.co.uk/Chocola ... Chewy-Soft

Buying with Ebay doesn't bring it all back in the way that buying in town does. I hope the odd cassette still pops up in the charity shops for a little while longer. (Not to mention the staying power of the retro candy place.)

And a further think shows how time just crumbles now we're older. Night time does that. Just look at the gadgets alone for your markers.

I can't believe VHS is already nearly 40 years old since launch. CD is already 30, DVD around 15 years old, MP3 easily the same and the Pentium 4 class PC processors are 12 - with the Internet a middle-aged 23. Hi-Def' television should have launched in Britain way back in 1992 and Even Blu-Ray is old for what it is now. And this is just your advanced home entertainment, forgetting hissy compact cassettes or blocky 8-bit micros for now.

No wonder the recent past still feels like you could almost reach out and touch it.
