What Is This Thing?
So I'm going through my stack of mail like I always do, not suspecting anything out of the ordinary, when I open a small envelope postmarked from somewhere in Australia and find this strange card in it.
No letter. No explanation. Just this strange card. I turned it around in my hands for a bit before handing it over to NPR Music Producer Daoud Tyler-Ameen. He went to Yale so of COURSE he figured it out in a matter of seconds.
This little tab flips out of the card and you can plug it into a USB slot on your computer. I've gotten USB thumb drives before with albums. But this one is pretty cool.
