So Wrong They’re Right

“Choosing 8-track does not have to be a trite act of nostalgia. It can be a political act, as significant as burning a plastic American flag that was made in Taiwan, or buying your entire wardrobe from a local thrift store. The 8-track lifestyle is not for everyone, but it is a serious alternative for those who feel betrayed by the masters of marketing, who constantly tell us what to hear and how to hear it. So what if the tape unravels and grinds to a cacophonous halt in the player? I’d rather feel pain than feel numb.”
