so many blank tapes

Boy, this page brought me back. I must've made somewhere between 80-90 mixes in high school - some for me, some for friends (like wienerschnitzel - we would copy Rush albums and then put filler on the 2nd side), most for one particular girlfriend - and I've used quite a number of these in my day. For the record, my preferred brand of choice was, I believe, this one:

Edit: or maybe it was this one? Regardless, they seem to be missing those yellow/green/transparent Maxell ones, which sucked and were ugly but I kept buying them anyway.

Edit edit: no, they're not. Why did I think they had green on them? Memorex, Maxell, who knows.

For me, it was all about these:

Though I have my fair share of Memorexes with the neon colors too.
Me, too. I was religious about these tapes. Heads and shoulders above the rest. Still have a ton of them, used and virgin, though I do not use them much anymore.
Oh my god, those Memorex dBS tapes were scattered all over my room for four straight years. They sucked, and I knew that, but I think I liked that they were clear. Teenage girls are suckers for that shit.
Maxell XL-II's or TDK SA's were the big ones; whichever of those I could thief from the K-Mart while I was pretending to work at the Gran Union.
