Does it look odd to you? That's because it has a tape deck. (Definition of such an archaic device can be found here.) And that white thing sticking out is called a cassette tape. I've clearly labeled it in the picture below:That particular cassette tape is Erasure's Wonderland. I've mentioned before how much I love Erasure and this album is especially......um....flaming. So much so that when I get out of my car, I'm shocked to see that it isn't actually 1986 and the people around me aren't wearing popped collars and talking into giant cell phones. I would like to expand my cassette collection, but for some reason, nobody sells cassettes anymore. Peculiar.
Interesting little tidbit about me and my car: I work with a gal who shares my name and also drives a vintage white Cabriolet, although mine is just a wee bit more vintage than hers. When anyone new comes to work with us, it takes them a while to realize which Tammie they're gonna get. It's been a fun and unexpected way to fuck with people.
