The blank Memorex cassette tapes from the 80s and 90s!

The little brats of today will never know how hard us tweens in the late-80s and early-90s had it. Those spoiled bitches just have to use their delicate, unstrained fingers to tap a few buttons on SpotiMusic and Applefy, or whatever, to create a playlist for their friends. Us old hags had to work hard to create a mixtape. Some of us have callous scars and wonky fingers from doing just that. We had to sneakily steal a cassette from our mom or dad’s collection (like a Julio Iglesias cassette we didn’t think they’d miss) and put scotch tape on the top holes part (any blank cassette hacker knows what I’m talking about) before putting it in our Boombox. Then we either had to stay alert while waiting for a radio station to play our favorite song so we could record it, or we had to record our favorite song from the cassette single our rich friend bought at The Wherehouse. Nobody has ever struggled like a tween making a mix tape in the 80s and 90s. But one thing that made the struggle easier was a blank tape.

I usually used my allowance money to buy cheap blank tapes from the swap meet or a Big Lots-type store, but when I wanted to impress someone, like a best friend or the girl I was trying to woo to be my grade school beard, I used a Memorex. The Memorex tapes were like the Rolls Royce of blank tapes to me thanks to their exquisitely artistic design and the fact that they were really, really expensive (to my broke tween ass, anyway).

Memorex also gave you little labels that you could use to write, “To My Beard Jennifer: Possible Choices For Our Love Song,” and slap it on your mix tape. It made it look extra professional.

Oh, Memorex blank tapes, how I miss you so.

And you know, kids today aren’t going to have the character and thick skin we have. In their defense, how can they?! They’ll never gets scars on their soul from the pain of hearing their favorite Memorex mix tape warping.
