What's taken the place of mixtapes?
Back in my day, when you wanted to really impress that special woman...you made them a mixtape - which was going to buy some cheap cassettes at K-Mart, and then taping your favorite songs for her from your record collection, then later your cassette collection, and then even later your CD collection. It usually included "Open Arms" by Journey.
However in this non-cassette, iPod laden, digital world - what has takent he place of the mixtape? Surely the need for this type of expression hasn't gone away...and if I were in high school, I certainly wouldn't be purchasing an iTunes mix or anything. So what does one do? Load up an iPod? Dump a bunch of ripped MP3s on a CD? Inquiring minds want to know...
