What? No love for the Pioneer 8 Track player? 

I grew up with those things!

That’s like being into granny porn—not everyone thinks of them that fondly.

Gawd, you made my ears cringe with that... I think my '70 Chevelle SS had one in it. Never bought any 8 tracks, but played one in it once. Almost threw it out the window! Man were those things bad.

I don't know -

but I want to listen to the Awesome Mix -- Vol. 2! -- on the Nakamichi.

In Spain we call them "válvulas". In other Spanish speaking countries they call them "tubos", but not in Spain. I rarely see them named valves in English.

In English, "valves" is used almost exclusively.  In American, everyone says "tubes" except for Dusty! 😁

Short for God's Truth. Sounds like a promotion to me, Dusty :P

Wait, it is?  I thought it was just a normal contraction, for "is truth".

(wanders off to Google)

Goddammit, now I have to stop using it.

It is like zounds, that used to be used as an exclamation in Marvel and other comics. Actually is a contraction of God's Wounds, a reference to the Crucifixion.

Egad.  I've been doing it wrong. I used it as confirmation, like 'indeed'.

What about 'zoiks'?

The lovely cassette deck I mentioned above. TBH it wasn't as good sounding as the looks would suggest. Still I recorded a ton of vinyls into cassettes with that machine.
