Haaah! Data Tape!!!! Remember when synths and sequencers and drum machines
needed those?

Actually, you should probably hold on to that tape. It might have some uses:

* Put it in your answering machine, freak out your friends.
* Sample it for your next techno recording.
* Forget sampling it, use the entire tape and boast that "This is the new
sound of techno."
* Get an acoustic (telephone reciever) modem play the tape into it, see
what happens.
* Slave your SMPTE track with the data tape, see what happens.
* Do a George Martin, cut up the tape, then splice the pieces together, and
then do the previous two suggestions.
* Put it in an envelope, leave it on someone's doorstep and see what happens.
* Pop it in your car stereo and show those teenagers a thing or two.
* Stick it in a tape recorder at your local college's language lab.
* Put it in a 4-track, play it in reverse and see if you can find any
secret messages.
* Play it in the background while going on HAM radio and say that you're a
pilot whose plane is in serious trouble
* Use it as a demo tape to get gigs.
