Music Don't Come From the Soul

It comes from your clothes. If you're wearing this dress anyway.

This dress is made from "a textile woven from recycled audio cassette tape." I know what you are thinking, "why waste all those good Def Leppard, Stryper, and Poison tapes?"

The amazing thing about this fabric is that it doesn't waste them, it makes them better. Since the tape doesn't lose its magnetism during the weaving process, it will still produce music--i.e. sounds that are undoubtedly as good as any 80's metal. All you need is a tape head that is still attached to the appropriate decoding and amplifying software. If you are still curious, look here for more info.

There is one last thing to mention, if you aren't so much a fan of the dress above, I should note that you can also buy flags and other such products. Or if you are the real Martha Stewart type, you can buy the fabric by the yard and make whatever your heart desires, perhaps even this little number. (I know it looks like a garbage bag, but come on... didn't you know?... garbage bags are back in.)

Isn't it exciting to know that music really can come from your clothes--most notably from parts of your clothes other than your zippers.

    Two questions: how much does it cost, and how much of an idiot would it make me if I bought something made out of it?

    For prices, check the link at the end of the third paragraph; the one from the word "here."

    With respect to the second question... well, Brendan, i don't think it would make you "more" of an idiot.
