Actual iTunes “Just for you” recommendation.
(Thanks, ed Eric.)
Makes perfect sense to me. I don’t see why this is funny.
Monkeys are always funny.
Johnny Cash is a well known vampire slayer.
The correlation is clear: If you like Buffy, you might like fantasizing about her in Folsom prison with Johny Cash and the boys. I’m just sayin…

I wondered why he always wore black.
http://www.bbc.co.uk/cult/buffy/ecomics/ring_of_fire/ and it burns burns burns.
I claim first!
…setting up for:
Aww, thanks for the introduction, croikle. I never knew I was so loved when I Spoke.
This is so old hat, I wrote my thesis on this.
Makes sense to me. I love both Buffy and Johnny Cash as does anyone who appreciates only the best of each genre.
i mean duh.
The man in black don’t look happy about where he’s got to.
it’s not funny, it’s a stark social commentary. The unpalatable fact is, most Johnny Cash fans like Buffy, and vice versa. The same can be said of red blooded males. They too like Buffy. hmmm, how far can I go with this. Yes, I too would like to slip Buffy a length and often fantasize about doing so whilst listening to Gangsta Rap. My favourtite fantasy involves, huh huh, finding other uses for one of those steaks she’s always carrying around. What happens is, she bends over and I #MYSQL-ERROR: There is an Error in your SQL Syntax Near ‘shove it up her ass’
When I bought “Buffy” iTunes recommended a new dual core iMac.
Wait a minute. Weren’t they seeing each other for awhile?
June musta been pissed. (But, hey, what’re ya gonna do to someone who kills vampires for a living? Drive a guitar into their heart? Force them to watch “Hee-Haw” reruns until their eyes bleed?)
It could be worse it could have recommended
All iTunes recommendations make sense. Do not question Steve. We love you, Steve! Steve, please smile upon me… please…
“You bought Buffy the Vampire Slayer -…”
That’s utterly ridiculous…
Cause you don’t get the official CD insert…
and then you can’t get it autographed if you don’t have it…
I got mine autographed …
umm damn … forgot this is just a joke… but this is Buffy …
you really bought the iTunes version?
I once saw Penn Jillette on Buffy, but never on Johnny Cash, so I don’t get the connection.
Who the hell is Eric?
Buffy dated Angel, who always wore black.
Johnny Cash was known as the man in black.
Johnny Cash was Angel.
Buffy dated Johnny Cash.
The connection is obvious.
I think the connection comes from the “16 biggest hits”. That number sounds a tad low for either Buffy, or Cash…
My usurp was ursurped by croikle. Good on ya.
Does not Buffy walk the line?
Does not Johnny Cash fight evil?
Does not John Cleese have a silly walk?
Where am I going with this?
Am I not in over my head?
Lets try this again, Once more with feeling.
You Own “Hey You, I Love Your Soul” by Skillet (really old Christian industrial metal album), We Recommend “Rent (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)”
That was my weird recommendation
Funny, that. Look what just showed up on my recommendation:
You Bought “Smile” (Best Driving album ever- by Brian Wilson). We recommend: Walk the Line (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)
Is there a Cash Conspiracy in the iTMS?
Well it’s obvious isn’t it? Apple, being Apple, have approached the problem of generating recommendations in a different way to the rest of the industry.
Where their more pedestrian competitors might offer albums similar to the ones you already own, Apple’s groundbreaking system leads you in a much more creative and original direction, offering albums from genres entirely unlike the albums you’ve bought so far.
“You bought The Shadows, Live at the Paris Olympia. We recommend Basement Jaxx, Kish Kash.”
“You bought Vangelis, Heaven & Hell. We recommend Motörhead, Iron Fist.”
I think the internet will soon be abuzz with compliments to this most innovative scheme.
Buffy never wears black-John always did- somebody else always wore black, ah yes Valentine Dyall but you wouldn’t remember him- someone else… ah it’s coming…..I’m getting the name Steve…….no it’s no good, the guide has gone.
I really relate to that post. Thanks for the info.
