Some stories are just begging for snark. For example, Urban Outfitters, that store beloved by you when you’re too lazy to hunt for something actually nice, is apparently trying to make cassettes happen again.
But unlike other 90’s era crap — Gak, snap wristbands, Polly Pockets and Lisa Frank notebooks immediately come to mind — it’s hard to even find an ironic use for a piece of technology this dysfunctional and outdated.
Cassettes, in case you don’t remember, play treble-y, flat sound. They’re also just dumb! And no one owns cassette players anymore for a reason!
Oh, and they’re charging a fairly ridiculous sum for them — $10.98 for inferior sound?
Urban Outfitters’ cassette collection is available online, and in the following stores:
King Of Prussia, PA
Georgetown, Washington D.C.
Herald Square, NYC
Park Meadow, CO
State Street, CH
Space 15 Twenty, Los Angeles
Gallery Place, Washington D.C.
San Francisco, CA
West Edmonton, Canada
