Vintage Formats

"Hey dad, what's a floppy?" Yes, we've come to that. Magnetically stored information isn't totally a thing of the past yet (some hard drives still spin) but we're getting there. Things like the floppy disk, VHS tape and cassette tape, brilliantly recreated here by builder J.B.F. are all memories, and I can't say I miss them. The quality was bad, the storage was minimal and the durability sucked. I don't think there's a modern day equivalent of handing a good friend or special someone a good mix tape. It was a way of conveying emotion and intention that had a soundtrack. I don't think a link to a playlist resonates quite the same.
