and you shall know jam box fans by the ink

so the other day i was driving through oregon and i stopped for gas. in that state, even at convenience stores, they have to pump it for you. so i get out of the car and this kid about twenty and the little vest comes up to the jeep. somehow, from interacting with him, i got the vibe he was coming out of the joint and was getting it together, and was a little embarrassed to be working in such a position. i could have made all that up, but that's the vibe i got. anyways, as we yakked, i noticed he had a badass tattoo of a jam box on his arm!

dave prewitt on rediscovering his tape collection

I  just had to replace my car. On my birthday, that's another creative story, although - this car's replacement had a cassette deck. I was, honestly, originally, a bit bummed. I thought "damn I can't use my ipod". I realized immediately that this indeed was the power of satan in today's music attempting to gain another for it's fiery onslaught of my radio dial. I knew I had some stash somewhere. I went to the garage, dug out THAT box, which became boxes - of old cassettes.
