NOPE: Urban Outfitters Is Trying To Make Cassettes Happen Again

NOPE: Urban Outfitters Is Trying To Make Cassettes Happen Again

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.

Yes, cassettes.

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immediately come to mind — it’s hard to even find an ironic use for a piece of technology this dysfunctional and outdated.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?

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your
    site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
