So, I've sort of messed with the packaging of this cassette. It came loose in a stripey bag. I folded said bag and made it into a j-card-ish insert.

Enjoying this trippy Geese business!
Avatar Tue. 8/12/14 1:04pm northguineahills:

My fire escape garden has been invaded by a pair of squirrels lately. This morning, they only left when I doused them w/ cups of water. They stripped all of my chilies (buried some in other planters, just dropped others when they realized they aren't tasty food). At least the birds I can scare away.

ngh, the bunnies in our neighborhood are completely immune to hot peppers, it seems.
Avatar Tue. 8/12/14 1:13pm northguineahills:

I wouldn't mind as much if they actually ate them, but the bite into one a few times, and toss it grab another, and do the same thing.
Avatar Tue. 8/12/14 1:14pm northguineahills:

Never had this problem before. W/ the thrushes and morning doves, it's hard to grow anything this year. Usually I just have aphids and scales, not a problem this year.

Avatar    Tue. 8/12/14 1:27pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

So much of this era was fed by cassette-recording answering machines. So much great material was scored via wrong-numbers that left confused messages, or tapes left in machines donated to thrift-stores... Great stuff.
Avatar    Tue. 8/12/14 1:31pm listener james from westwood:

Turnip, were you an FMU listener when the Professor was running the Audio Kitchen show? He'd play all manner of found sound, be they mass purchases of C60s at thrift stores, tape letters or kids horsing around, or scavenged answering machine/voice mail messages. wfmu.org... is where you'll find 'em.
Avatar Tue. 8/12/14 1:32pm northguineahills:

The squirrels also knocked my habaneros off the fire escape, and they weren't even fruiting yet. Only saved one, but the trauma set back it's development about a month. Thank ye gods that I've already harvested over a dozen jalapenos. Doesn't look I'll have poblanos this year, but the tomatoes should be fine if the squirrels don't get to that. Trying rainbow chard this year.

Tony, we managed to make the last day of the Rose Festival. Stayed at the hotel directly across the street, and walked up to voodoo donuts. No time for record shopping, though.

hey, Tony, what is the most rare and sought after cassette you've encountered?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/12/14 1:49pm Carmichael:

Hey there DCE, been fighting the IT man. I managed to finnagle a way through the semiconductors back to FMU. Today's my birthday, so I'm just kickin' it at work.
Avatar Tue. 8/12/14 1:51pm Tony Coulter:

@ Cecile: That's tricky -- rare and sought after don't always overlap. There were fewer than 10 copies made of the Bomis Prendin cassette I aired a while back. So that's a possible candidate....
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 8/12/14 1:52pm Cecile:

What's the one thing that is rare and people actually want most in your experience?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 8/12/14 1:53pm DCE:

@ Carmichael, happy birthday and keep fighting the good fight!

Hey Dean!

@ Cecile: It really is hard for me to say. There are cassettes that sell for hundreds of dollars. I have some of them. Can't think of one that's "most wanted."
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 8/12/14 1:59pm DCE:

I'd slather that, RTD!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 8/12/14 2:06pm Cecile:

Oh, ok, I just wondered if there was some kind of "holy grail" cassette people were after.
Avatar Tue. 8/12/14 2:10pm Tony Coulter:

Well, I see this AC/DC cassette sold for almost $3,500: www.popsike.com...

Glad you like it!
Avatar Tue. 8/12/14 2:18pm glenn:

it's like in the documentary, vinyl. there are guys out there who will spend 5,000$ on a record, and then can't afford a new roof for their house, and then can't seem to figure out the common denominator.
Avatar Tue. 8/12/14 2:21pm Tony Coulter:

Of course, you could make a new roof out of vinyl (vinyl siding).
Avatar Tue. 8/12/14 2:22pm glenn:

you know, that's actually not a bad idea.

That's only if you live in Vinylstan. I steer clear of that territory.
Avatar Tue. 8/12/14 2:26pm glenn:

they're waterproof, and they have a nailing hole in the centre. for the caps, you could just bend them with a heat gun. voila! a new roof.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 8/12/14 2:27pm Andrew Waterloo:

I can understand the AC/DC thing if you're a completist with a bit of extra money and AC/DC is basically the only band whose music you buy. But for me, for ever record that I can pay big money for there are 12 others I'd like to hear.
Avatar Tue. 8/12/14 2:30pm glenn:

holy fuck! it's been done. by neil young!
Avatar Tue. 8/12/14 2:30pm Tony Coulter:

Hey Andrew!

Given the choice between one $50 record and one hundred 50-cent ones, I generally opt for the latter. Probably should stop doing that.
Avatar Tue. 8/12/14 2:31pm Tony Coulter:

@ Glenn! Wow! Wadya know...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 8/12/14 2:34pm Andrew Waterloo:

@Tony, I'm the same. Especially since you don't have to pay the big bucks just to hear something now a days.

Avatar Tue. 8/12/14 2:38pm northguineahills:

I may collect musical media, but I'm not a collector. I buy musical media to listen to it, don't care about the monetary value. That said, I do have quite a few records (and some cassettes) that are worth something, but many of them I've played or scratched to death. (even when bought in near-mint condition).
Avatar    Tue. 8/12/14 2:38pm listener james from westwood:

(Unheard from: Zeppo, Gummo, Bongo, Bilbo, Sneezy.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 8/12/14 2:39pm Cecile:

yup, andrew. The most I would pay for a out of print collector album (except for a very few cases) would be the price of a new CD at the time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 8/12/14 2:39pm Cecile:

So, if it was something I was absolutely crazy about I'd pay $12-20 (sale U.S. CD price - sale import CD price).
Avatar Tue. 8/12/14 2:40pm Tony Coulter:

Nowadays, vinyl and CDs have switched places. It's often cheaper to get something on CD, especially used.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 8/12/14 2:41pm Cecile:

Exactly. The day of the GOOD $1 CD is here.
Avatar Tue. 8/12/14 2:41pm Tony Coulter:

Avatar    Tue. 8/12/14 2:45pm βrian:

Damn, ça me donne des frissons.
Avatar    Tue. 8/12/14 2:53pm βrian:

That would be $81,000 in today's dollars. A pretty price for a stone bird.
