As I procrastinated in writing up a spotlight on NY Times magazine columnist Rob Walker‘s recent piece ‘Hitting Rewind on the Cassette Tape‘, I couldn’t help to see cultural reminders pop up on my daily RSS trawl. I found Cassette Street Art, SD card reading MP3 players shaped as cassette tapes, neck ties made from recycled tape and I swear I saw somewhere some sort of table attached out of a wall where it was designed to look like a cassette sticking out of a player.
