    Jack White owns a record label. Said record label just celebrated its third anniversary. To mark the occasion, those who attended the celebration left with a record... but not just any record. No, this one includes 24 or so songs, and is designed to spin at just 3 RPM.

    As no record player is designed to spin so slowly, any listening you get from this record will require manual spinning. Talk about a tedious listen!

    Love that record color! I'd buy that record just to see what my father makes of it. :D

    The Ultimate LP huh? Beat that MP3, your compression sucks in comparison! Oh wait... can fit over 320 albums on a 32GB 1 inch SD card... or if Seagate goes HAMR time, 10,000 albums on a 1 inch 1TB platter... That's several billion dollars of stolen music right there. Really, watch the video, it's awesome.
