@trueneutralcrew Thank you for the thoughtful replies. They're helpful and made me think.
@gmlittletape @trueneutralcrew We have circled around to meaninglessness. The original question being asked was about cassettes as a medium!
@trueneutralcrew @gmlittletape But medium isn't irrelevant, either. Releasing only on cassette presumes a lot about the audience's desires.
@totalvibration @killrockstars On tap for Record Store Day 2015: Hutch Harris croons Thermals B-sides through a megaphone! Sheet music only.
@totalvibration @killrockstars I've hated cassettes since you were in short pants, Buster Brown.
@killrockstars So if you want a physical copy of half the songs on the bonus tape, you have to buy a box set of cassettes.
@gmlittletape @trueneutralcrew But "ignoring" the audience that doesn't use/like cassettes is A-OK, right? Admirable, even, I'm sure.
@killrockstars Not to mention the thousands of LP and CD copies of that "Bonus Cassette" you've printed, right? Love you guys, but come on.
