Getting To Yes


My dear spouse bought the new album by Steven’s Salute, and it was a bunch of downloads, because it was bought on the Internet. The only tangible goods ever bought on the Internet are Woot shirts, ammunition, and wooden carvings of chickens.

iTunes reported the album, particularly the second song, had a playing time of 372 hours (honest!). Possibly when Steven’s Salute was finishing their records they entered something in the info box and GarageBand wanted to double-check so it popped up a little box asking “Are You Sure? Yes/No” and since the instinctive response to an “Are You Sure?” dialogue box popping up is to hit “Yes” before it’s even read because they never actually stop you from doing something stupid, the software thought it was the prog-rock band and figured, yeah, fifteen and a half days isn’t that much longer than “The Gates of Delirium”, so it accepted everything.

It’s a pleasantly zippy 372 hours, for what it’s worth.

    1. Oh, my, there wasn’t any inconvenience at all. The album downloaded perfectly well and we’ve enjoyed listening to it; there was just the amusing oddity in some of iTunes’s data about it. But I’m happy for the chance and hope the album’s being received well generally.

    2. Oh, it’s not a problem. I’m the one who bought the record. It doesn’t actually play for 372 hours, it just shows up funny in the song data. It doesn’t bother me at all. I enjoy the music a lot.
