In Record Time

Not long ago, the altar of almost every under-thirty household was a wall of shelving filled with 33 1/3 LP albums. Moving, and there was a lot of that, always required sturdy boxes filled with heavy vinyl disks and their covers. Yes, the records sounded great except for the scratches, but all you could do with them was listen. Can you imagine? Oh, you could read the liner notes. The mp3 file is very much with us yet, but it’s not the cutting edge it was when this comic was drawn in 2006. Streaming is big now, and a link, I suppose, is the only physical connection to one’s music collection. I don’t know if it’s better, but it sure makes moving easier.
