For years there have been stories about the massive number of promotional CDs (and now DVDs) that AOL sends out trying to get you to sign up with them. For a while, the popular story was about the guys trying to get a bunch of them together to dump them on AOL’s doorstep. There are also stories about those collectors who search eBay for the amazing “rare” AOL discs. Well, now, here’s the story of the “artist” who uses AOL discs in his artwork. One of the pieces is a garbage can full of the damn platters. It’s scary just how deeply the idea of the AOL CD has permeated our society.
