    This is the floppytable, a coffee table that looks like a giant 3.5" floppy disk. The metal protector even slides to the side to reveal a little storage space for your remotes/weed. That's pretty cool. My roommate? He's the opposite of cool. Isn't that right, Derrek? He l... / Continue →

    This is a video of the Ghostbusters theme performed on eight floppy drives as programmed by floppy aficionado MrSolidSnake745. Admittedly, it's probably one of the best "songs performed on floppy drives" renditions I've heard, and that's saying a lot because some days my tip l... / Continue →

    Another day, another person playing the Imperial March on pieces of obsolete computer equipment (another 3.5" floppy attempt HERE and a hard drive version HERE). Admittedly, this is probably the best-sounding one to date. My last date? She sounded like a banshee screaming li... / Continue →

    This is a video of the Star Wars Imperial March played on a 3 1/2" disk (the 5 1/4" floppy's rigid little sister). It's just as awesome as you thought it would be. Unless you thought it wouldn't be awesome, in which case you're wrong. Just like I was when we were playing al... / Continue →

    Designboom is selling floppy disk CDRs. They're really just little 80mm disks in the little cases, but whatever. Each has a 200 MB capacity and comes with blue, red, green and yellow labels for customization. You can get one for $14 or 4 for $32 (including shipping). They'r... / Continue →
