Task complete!

Since January of this year I have been digitizing my personal cassette tape collection of live shows and demo tapes. Yesterday I posted the last one I had to do to complete the task. I started this blog on September 13, 2010 and have made 633 posts. Yesterday I also posted demo tapes and live recordings by bands from my home town and that is the last of everything I have left to post.

I would like to thank everyone who left comments as well as those who got in touch!!

  1. Hey there,
    I have a load of cassettes and I was wondering if ya could tell me how to digitize them, make them MP3s, or whatever. I've tried a few different things, bought a tape player (USB) on EBay that didnt work, tried this and that, and im pretty frustrated with it. But I have about a 100/150 cassettes that I wanna put on my blog. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I also have Garage Band (but not ProTools).
    Also, congrats on the 633 posts! Ya have done a hell of a job sharing obscure toons with those ho dont have that stuff!!! I hope that more is coming!
    Thanks and cheers,
    Sean NoBeastSoFierce

  10. Hats off to the work you've done so far. You really deserve some kind of archival award for all of this. If there's a means to keep it up, by all means do so.

  11. Nice blog. Would definitely be up for the Shudder demos when you receive them. Check out my blog sometime if you get the notion:


  12. thank you SO MUCH for your effort!

  13. Hey man, just wanted to say thanks for the incredible posts over the last year or so, I've been reading/downloading your posts almost since the beginning and have been exposed to some incredible moments in punk rock history as a result.

    I used to do a lot of trading, and would be interested in sending you some shows to post, or maybe trading a bit if you want. My old list (I still have ~80% of this) is at and I'm in the process of compiling a new one. Feel free to shoot me a message on my Youtube account if you wanna chat. Thanks again!
