I actually had "vintage" in mind while designing this. In a previous life, I was a video store clerk... way back in a mystical when VHS was still king and people weren't sure if DVD was just a fad. Ah, the good ol' days of disassembling the cassettes and splicing broken tape. You could hold them with both hands and they felt virtually indestructable compared to frail DVDs.

*sniff* Vote for this before nostalgia overtakes me and I start to cry.

I remember those days of tapes dominating media. GMV!

You can ride with me, or you can find your own path. Don't stab me in the back after I've cleared the way.

Wow, this one up close is really neat. The thumbnail doesn't really do it justice, though I'm not sure if you could have made it any better than it is...

GMV!

Thank you, noisdois. Even though this design isn't coaxing that many votes, your compliment gave me the little bit of validation I needed. You're right, though... the details get lost in the thumbnail. It just goes to remind me how important those are, like any first impression.
