audio observations

It occurs to me that the concept of "books on tape" is only slightly better than the concept of "opera on 8-track cassette". Most semi-literate people in Western countries have CD players nowadays.

I own one 8-track... it's the movie soundtrack for "The Rocky Horror Picture Show". I saw it in a thrift store and the sheer kitsch value of the item demanded its purchase. Haven't had an 8-track player since my old 2XL when I was a kid, though... mmm. 2XL sounds. Geeky...
