My personal hot take: just forget the growth-above-everything mindset already! It isn't healthy, not even at the start. It is the root of so many issues we face in our societies, environment. Please talk about the uncomfortable; wealth inequality, economic and ecological exploitation! #latitude59
Wire players have some serious aesthetic~
Common during the 50's into about the mid-60's, these were tape recorders before tapes.
As the name implies they recorded/played audio from small spools of metal wires. The quality was so-so and the wires were prone to snapping in two which is why the higher quality, durable tapes later displaced them.
Thankfully the snaps were easy to fix - just tie the edges back together!
This is also probably where "he's wearing a wire!" came from.
