Reality distortion field


#1

I guess in Steve Jobs’s Reality Distortion Field, December 1st is “in November.”

The Apple iTunes music store is now open in Canada, eh.

I’m going to buy a song. Any suggestions?

Also, I now know what I’m giving my brother for Christmas.


#2

Wow, it’s like 99 cents. I wonder if that’s Canadian?

First song bought is “one day in your life” by 54-40.

Also, it allows you to authorize music on up to 5 computers (Mac or peecee). And it allows burning and stuff.

I wonder if it’s Canadian $ or US $ ?

It’s incredibly easy. Maybe too easy. They didn’t even prompt me for my Credit Card number, as I recently bought an Airport Express base station and a G5 iMac with my Apple account.

7437 songs on my G5 now. I paid for one of them.


#4

When I saw this forum topic I sort of got excited… But then I saw Steve Jobs name mentioned…


#5

It’s supposed to happen in the opposite direction. His name is mentioned, and it causes the Reality Distortion Field.

Steve Jobs’s RDF is sort of the opposite of IBM’s FUD.


#6

Sorry I left my tinfoil hat in the car. Haha what is a RDF?? Does it involve some sort of induction…because induction is sweet.


#7

RDF = Reality Distortion Field.

But really, this iTunes shit is really easy. Holy crap talk about instant gratification. I want this song. Click, sample. Click, buy.

Before it was like click, sample. Click, start gnutella, click search, click click click, etc.

The music comes with album art too. I’m pretty sure it’s 99 cents Canadian. $9.99 for albums.

Ok, I am the one who has been asking about the iTMS for a while now. I’ll post my initial observations shortly.

That said, has anyone ever been having a really shitty day at work, and then your boss comes up to and starts riding you about something, and before you think you blurt out “Fuck off, I’ve been drinking!”??


#9

Yeah, but what is a reality distortion field?

Haha! Nope, I haven’t. Did you?


#11

Dude, click the links. They explain it.


#12

Strange. I was completely oblivious to those links… But now that you mentioned there were links I found them.

Billy Idol’s Rebel Yell: $11.99
Finally, the iTunes Music Store, has come BACK, to Canada: Priceless.


#14

Once your account is set up, man, so easy to just spend spend spend.


#15

You bought an album?

Did you burn it?


#16

The funny thing is, I would never even consider walking into a store and paying $12.00 for a CD.


#17

There’s free shit on there too. Alrighty, educational:

Last night as I was lyin’
Just loungin’ in my bed,
Heard such a loony howling’,
Stood my hair up on my head.
Lunged over to the window,
Flipped the floodlight right on.
Hey, there’s a letter L
On the loose,
Leaping across my lawn!

I heard the letter L
Let out a "luh-luh-luh."
The little rebel L,
He cried, "Luh-luh-luh."
Luh-luh-luh!"
I heard the letter L
Let out a "luh-luh-luh."
The little rebel L,
He went, “Luh-luh-luh,
LUH-LUH-LUH!”

Rebel L!

He said, “You gotta listen,
See, I’m a lean, mean lad.
Don’t like to stand for ‘lacy
Little lamb’ or 'lilly pad!'
Just wanna live for loudness,
And don’t say I’m too young.
I was born to go luh-luh-luh
At the top of my luh-luh-lungs!”

I heard the letter L
Let out a "luh-luh-luh."
The little rebel L,
He cried, "Luh-luh-luh."
Luh-luh-luh!"
I heard the letter L
Let out a "luh-luh-luh."
The little rebel L,
He went, “Luh-luh-luh,
LUH-LUH-LUH!”

Rebel L!

Leaned out a little lower,
“Leapin’ lizards!” I yelled,
“You gotta learn a lesson,
Hey, it’s late, get lost, rebel L
You’re wakin’ up the neighbors.
Please leave us in peace.
Looks like you’re outta luck,
Letter L,
Here come the pol-luh-luh-lice!”

Policewoman: Hey, little letter L,
You’re too loud, loud, loud.
We know you’re lost and lonely
Without a crowd, crowd,
Crowd, crowd.
But listen, letter L,
We got laws, laws, laws!

Rebel L: I’m just a rebel L
Without a cause, cause, cause!
A rebel L!

I’m just a rebel L!
You know I’m just a rebel L!
You know I’m just a rebel L!
I’m just a rebel L!

It’s probably time for someone else to post in this thread.
