Michael Oster is mental. And good for him. We need more visionaries like him with perhaps more then a few screws loose.
Whilst looking for some sound effects, I came across Oster's website F7Sound which does, in fact, sell sound effects CDs, but what caught my eye was a page on his invention, the tape-record, and how to make one:
- Unspool some of your old cassettes (come on, you're never gonna play that Nu Shooz cassingle anymore, are you?)
- Glue this big random mess onto a piece of cardboard - this is your "tape-record."
- Replace your turntable needle with a cassette deck head.
- Put tape-record on turntable and play.
Don't you want to know what it sounds like? I thought you did.
Michael Oster: Tape-Record #2
So what are you waiting for, people? I expect a full tape-record compilation album in a year. Get going!
