I can see the arguments for vinyl.  I like it, but can totally understand the people that don't.  Cassettes, though?  They were never a good option.  They were simply the only decent solution at the time until something better came along.  The only advantage they had was portability.  Once CDs came about (let alone digital), cassettes had no reason to exist.

Crosley is the rare company who's product standards improved to meet Wal-Mart's price point standard.

If Hopper is supposed to return from Russia, then I'm guessing the Upside-Down is like the Nether in Minecraft where a short distance within moves you a long distance in the overworld.

The problem is it only takes you to Hawkins, Russia and L'Manberg.

That player looks like it was taken straight from the 60s or the 70s. Kids in the 80s had Walkmans or boomboxes, not colorful little players that looked one step away from a Fisher Price toy.

Aren't the "kids" like 20 at this point?

You don't know how many times I've seen some kid make "look at this record I'm playing" post and the record is on a Crosley.

But if some kid wants to screw up his Daft Punk repress, I ain't gonna stop him.

Still not enough to incentivize me to go to Walmart

Is Stranger Things still a thing, no one I know is talking about it?

Modern cassette players all use the same garbage mechanism. They are complete trash. Would not buy. Ever.

I'd consider it for half that price, if it has an audio out port to load games into my computer. I do appreciate that unlike those behind the article, it did occur to you that people might want to know what it looks like.

It's been two years since the last series. Anyone who isn't a huge fan of the show will have moved on to something else by now. I'm sure once the new series is released we'll be hearing more about it.

Mostly because it's been on hold for 2 years due to the Covid.  They started filming in Feb of last year and then stopped in March.  Apparently they started filming again Sept last year and then just finished filming in Sept of this year.

Are you doing that in every thread or do I just happen into the ones you're posting it in?

Eh, my boom box has a cassette player, radio & CD player. I'm good.

The secret message is "you actually paid money for this?"
