As for fixing them, that's a bit difficult. For a broken tape, if you're careful and have a lot of time on your hands, you can take them apart and splice the tape. You can get splice tape in well-stocked camera stores.

Unfortunately, you can't do much with stretched tapes, etc.

I love the sound of tape,s but sort of mroe as a novelty. I could never stand listening to them often, because they're just way too 'warm' sounding, you know? But I fucking love tape hiss, and wish it was on every recording, EVER.

What bullshit? That people have a preference for one format over another? How is that bullshit?

I can't believe I'm even taking the bait, but go ahead, reel me in.

I always wondered what it would be like to have sex with a female replica of me. A really sexy female replica, of course.

They say we are all both female and male to greater or lesser degrees in our one body.

do not foget that most every recording is first recorded upon that magnetic tape, just like cassettes, masters and such. cassettes sound great blasting out a boom box and do not skip when moved, bumped, etc

The CD revolution has come and gone. The pendulum is swinging the other way. It's a new (analog) world, people.

is their anything you can do to fix a tape that makes the sound all warped and slow?

listening to crappy sounding cassettes on crappy stereo systems is the way that some music should be heard.

For those of you who do not recall the packaging in the music cd market, the Long Box (12" x 6") was an extra outer cardboard package that surrounded the CD case. It extended the size of CD packaging to 12 inches. Long boxes were exclusive to the US where retailers insisted on them so that CDs could be displayed in conventional LP browsers. The CD cases were complete inside the long boxes, and they represented a low point in common sense regarding acceptance of new formats. They were soon phased out because environmentalists targeted the packaging as being wasteful in that most people threw them away after opening, and they were filling up landfills at an alarming rate. Long boxes are now considered quite rare!
