VHS Lamp: It’s like your favorite Trek episodes are holding a light bulb

Posted in Lamps by Conner Flynn on May 10th, 2009

VHS LampI knew there was a use for all of those old VHS tapes in the closet. Seven, count ’em, seven VHS tapes are holding up this light bulb. Whether it’s old Sanford and Son shows or Star Trek the Next Generation, old television is the new way to light your home.

As the creator points out, the lamp is designed to be used with a CFL (compact flourescent) bulb ONLY. A standard bulb might get too hot and melt your VHS tapes. There’s nothing worse than a mound of melted tape. Trust me on that one. Goes well with the VHS toaster.

TapeLink converts cassette tapes to MP3Let’s say you still have a huge library of cassette tapes for some reason. Maybe you just hate to part with them. Maybe you’re cheap and treat yard sales like your own private iTunes. Whatever. Here’s a quick way to digitize those old tapes into MP3 formats.

It’s the TapeLink from Alesis. The recorder will do more then just make a copy. It will virtually remove all hissing or other abnormalities in sound quality and convert them to MP3’s. Just plug it into the USB cable on your Mac or PC and you’re good to go. The bundled EZ Tape Converter makes transfer easy and convenient. The files can then be retrieved via USB on your computer to store on any device you want.

Skeleton made up of old melted cassettes

Skeleton made up of old melted cassettes
Many of us have a closet full of old cassette tapes that we haven’t seen since at least the mid nineties. Did you ever think that they could turn into something useful? Like a creepy and cool skeleton for instance?

Brian Dettmer is a man who knows what to do with old music. Melt it and let your music rise from the ashes as something undead. It’s especially appropriate if you use heavy metal tapes. Never throw anything away people. Instead, make it into something else. Imagine how much creepier it would have looked had he used VHS tapes.
