I am a big fan of what I call “portable nostalgia”, some remnant of the things of the past that can be encapsulated into a small form and carried around with you, giving you instant, universal access to that thing. At first, I got this portable nostalgia from my Ipod, which held my entire music library, including all my 80s tunes. My books ANESthetized and Arcadian were attempts to generate this portable nostalgia as well.
And now I’ve found another way to get it: tablet apps. Here are two Android apps I found that give me this portable nostalgia.
And in case you’re a Apple person, here’s one for the Ipad.
