The cassette tape meme strikes again. Cassette From My Ex is a website that publishes the epic stories behind mixtapes received from past loves. The mixes represent the jumbled range of emotions and feelings (good and bad) that can be experienced when in love. Most are romantic, some are awkward and others just straight up funny. Audio files, cover artwork and play lists are included so you can really live the whole experience.
An excerpt from a mix called “Obliteration”:
This was the start of my relationship with Amy, a short-lived affair that, from that moment on, was defined by music. Not surprisingly, during one of our first sober conversations, Amy and I discussed our mutual love of making mixtapes.
We shared an appreciation for the artistry involved in coming up with mixtape titles, artwork and of course, the perfect set list. To me, mixtapes were more than mere compilations. They were expressions—portraits of personalities, feelings, or relationships.
So when I revealed that despite my years of making tapes, no one had ever given one to me, Amy made it her mission to pop my mixtape cherry.
