    If you play a Springsteen album at 78 rpm, it sounds like Dolly Parton, No, really!

    Too bad that even when Calvin and Hobbes are being incredibly cool, their timing is so off.

    Mike Jittlov played a polka at 78rpm for the soundtrack in the first half of his cult favorite Wizard of Speed and Time student short.

    What parent hasn’t wanted to give their kid away at some point? But few of us rarely do. Maybe the kids would be better off if we did.

    A few years ago, we went looking for a 78 rpm turntable to play our antique collection. Most looked at us like we were asking for a wax cylinder machine. (We finally found one, still in the box, at a small town pawn shop.)

    This is one of the all-time greatest C&H strips. At the very least, it is the most copied & photoshopped one.

    I’m telling you: try playing a Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony LP at 78 RPM, and you’ll know how fast that kid’s mind races.
