Hot Slut Of The Day!

The faux wood cassette tape holder from the olden days!

In the prehistoric years when we had to listen to music using a plastic rectangle stuffed with stringy plastic intestines, I used shoe boxes to hold my cassette tapes. But many of my friends and friends’ parents were way more engineeringly-advanced and fancier than me. They were Marie Kondo before Marie Kondo was even a thing, because they held their cassette tapes in that fake wood icon of 80s organization!

If the cassette tape was the ruler of music listening in the 80s, that faux wooden holder was its official palace. It felt like everyone (except me) who owned a cassette tape, also owned this legend of interior design opulence. It was as important to the culture of cassettes as was that move where you’d use a different name to get another 12 tapes for $1.00 by opening up a new Columbia House membership. Here’s a closer look at the stress-saving legend who allowed you to easily access your tapes, unlike that uncouth shoe box, which probably stripped years off my life off from me furiously going through tape after tape to find the one I wanted.

Sure, saying, “Alexa, please play [insert the name of absolutely any damn song]”, is easy, but I’m sure there was nothing like opening up a luxurious faux wood cassette tape holder and seeing your vast collection of the classics (Stacey Q, Martika, etc…) in front of you. It really is the Goopy Paltrow book curator of music!
