I just received the latest issue of Juiced.GS and found this stamped on the envelope.
This is 2012. Almost nobody even knows what “magnetic media” is anymore. This stamp could be a foreboding sign:
You’re walking down a dark alley. Rats, scratching for a bite, scurry behind the overflowing dumpsters. Somewhere in the shadows there’s a raspy breathing sound. A windowless padlocked door has an old handwritten sign: ”Magnetic Media” Beneath that, barely visible under rust brown splotches: “Do Not X-Ray | Do Not Bend”. A cold mist has settled on the ground.
Thankfully, the envelope contained, nestled between the full-color cover pages of Juiced.GS, a 5¼” floppy disk in a hand-made sleeve with Drift, an original Apple II program with all new music, graphics, ASCII art, and easter eggs.
