Machine with a rotating center used by DJ's to play, scratch, and mix music. There are now CD turntables, so Vinyl is not the only one.

A rotation of the mid-section-with legs apart; channeling momentum while falling and rolling on the upper part of one's back. Consecutive turntables make up the classic breakdance move, the draw-droping windmill.

Gamer slang for a first generation stand-alone CD video game console. Used in a nostalgic sense, much how a "Toaster" is used to describe a console that uses cartridges.
I don't bother with those emulators. I'm old-school. I use a turntable.

The art of playing the turntable as a musical instrument. Not to be confused with DJing, which is more about providing dance music and/or mixing beats. Turntablism is more about manipulating sounds and creating rhythms or even melodies by scratching and techniques using a mixer.
Not all DJs are turntablists, but all turntablists (with a few rare exceptions) are DJs.
