Cool way to save your 2-tracks.

Per my previous post we purged possessions today, and as I began to brutally discard all my old 2-track tapes, Kate said “don’t do that.” I thought about it and then got out the hot glue gun.

Here are 40 of my old cassette tapes–mixes from other people, and lots of mixdowns from my work in Missouri and Champaign in the 1990’s. I was going to send them to the landfill but instead hot-glued them together side-to-side like bricks, and backed them with some matte board.

These rescued tapes will hang somewhere after more framing and backing. And they’re saved from oblivion; if I ever really want to remix or hear”Right wing monkeys to the moon,” I can bust the hot glue on this thing and recover the tape.
