funnily enough there's a lot of things like "digitally encoded VHS" or "copy-protected NTSC broadcast" that i'm consciously avoiding because they're actually real

@lynnesbian it's just a cassette of Jonathan Coulton's album Solid State

@lynnesbian I kinda want to make a solid state compact casette. An SD-card reader, microcontroller, codec, DAC, and magnetic analog interface to the casette player. Power from a generator driven through the tape spool wheel. Control by the casette (fwd, rev, fast forward).

Too much effort and too niche but it would be a lot of fun.
