It saddens me to realize that so many of our readers never courted a gal with a mixtape. (And no, "playlists" are just not the same.)

The Mixtape Watch, by EOS, replaces the standard watch face with an anodized black stainless steel cassette. Inside this cassette, two tape-like dials (one for hours, one for minutes) spin to tell the time.

Kitschy? For certain. But you stick some Journey on here and you're golden. (Coincidentally, gold and blue versions of the watch are available as well, all priced at $135.) [ShopAdorn via TheAwesomer via Albotas via OhGizmo!]

DISCUSSION

I used to make mixed CDs. Currently I'm 28; I was 12 when I got my first CD player (I think they came out when I was around 8-10).

I remember recording songs and stuff off the radio on tapes, but by the time I was interested in girls enough to make them something, CDs were the dominant medium at the time. But not everyone had a CD burner on their computer when I was in high school. It wasn't until midway through college that every computer had a CD burner.

THAT makes me feel old, although those that actually were 16+ when tapes were the shiznittle bam snip snap snack, then sorry, your ass is older than mine!
