Don't they have radio stations in Utah that you can tune to that play the audio version of the Book of Mormon? :P You'll know it's time to turn the page when Nephi thumps his chest like this <thump>. :angel:

I'd like to put up a link but the link won't stay around forever, check out ebay. The best "deal" I found was a BoM, D&C, and OT cassette sets all for only $29.99.

I don't know if this can be classified as funny or painful but DW just introduced me to the Mormon Rap that she remembers from her youth. :sick:

Ha ha!!! That was hilarious! I had no idea there was a Mormon rap! Not sure if I'm better off knowing about it. :lol:

Yep - more like Celestial Rap (think of the abbreviation) :-)

Somewhere in my piles of childhood junk, I have a cassette tape of Mormon Rap that I (gulp) bought after hearing it played on the local radio station of my predominantly Mormon town. :oops:
So through the dusk of dead, blank-legended And unremunerative years we search to get where life begins, and still we groan because we do not find the living spark where no spark ever was; and thus we die, still searching, like poor old astronomers who totter off to bed and go to sleep, to dream of untriangulated stars.

My last car had a cassette deck, and it was easier to play MP3 etc on it via a jack - my current car has no port on it.

Personally always found tapes more practical than CDs when changing them. CDs scratch and screw up if they land on the floor.

MP3 etc can be fiddly.

MP3 via flash drive for the win. My current JVC stereo was under $100 and I'm not sure I've ever actually put a CD in it. CD players tend to get clogged up with dust from the dirt roads and driveways around here anyway. A 16G ultra-tiny flash drive from Staples holds more music than I can listen to in 4-5 days for under $30 and makes it easy to add and rearrange on the computer without any special software or card reader.

Sooooo Funny! Thanks for the laugh! :lol: :lol:

Perhaps the poster should have tried "Facebook"! The way clips are passed around that website, they would probably have their tapes back by now!

Yeah, I've got MP3 and friends have iPods... the joke is that I could hook them up to the cassette player in my last two cars (via a modified tape thingy), but I can't actually hook either up to my CD player in my current one. Nuts or what?

You had the Book of Mormon on 8-track?
Luke: "Why didn't you tell me? You told me Vader betrayed and murdered my father."
Obi-Wan: "Your father... was seduced by the dark side of the Force. He ceased to be Anakin Skywalker and became Darth Vader. When that happened, the good man who was your father was destroyed. So what I told you was true... from a certain point of view."
Luke: "A certain point of view?"
Obi-Wan: "Luke, you're going to find that many of the truths we cling to...depend greatly on our point of view."
