Yeah, I get really tired of all the talk about how great things used to be. There is some very selective cherry picking happening when statements like that are made.
It drives me crazy, honestly, which is why I liked the picture so much. Nobody's still using casettes, despite people saying about how they were so great, or how the audio quality is better "because it's analogue." They weren't that great- they were too expensive and melted and got screwed up and they sounded like crap. Nostalgia is cool, but cmon.
