Unplayable CDs

(jessecoombs) #1

One thing I like to introduce as a Superuser is the idea of vintage computer stuff. Antiquated forms of media that show up on the Donut that are appreciated for their form and nostalgia more than their function. Kind of like records now. I had one game where the Microsoft “Clippy” program was being traded around and turned out to have an ancient virus attached to the file.

The indie band Yacht released an unplayable disc that does have all their music on it. Then they had a concert where they performed, saying it was the only way to experience the “secret” of the actual music. Neat ideas that would translate well to ephemera and printing challenges.

Here’s their site:
