A long time ago I had a strange experience where my Dual turntable (a vintage record player) seemed to change speeds all by itself. Hovering over the device in my usual ritualistic manner, I glanced away for a fraction of a second. When I looked back the cursed thing had changed its speed from 33 […]Read More Are we living in different times and places right now?
