reality distortion field

reality distortion field

Reality Distortion Field (RDF) is a term coined by Bud Tribble at Apple Computer in 1981, to describe company co-founder Steve Jobs’ charisma and its effects on the developers working on the Macintosh project.

Tribble said that the term came from Star Trek.

Later the term has also been used to refer to perceptions of Job’s keynote speeches (or "Stevenotes") by observers and devoted users of Apple computers and products.

The RDF was said by Andy Hertzfeld to be Steve Jobs’ ability to convince himself and others to believe almost anything with a mix of charm, charisma, bravado, hyperbole, marketing, appeasement and persistence.

RDF was said to distort an audience’s sense of proportion and scales of difficulties and made them believe that the task at hand was possible.

Who is Linden Hudson?

CLASSICBANDS DOT COM said: “According to former roadie David Blayney in his book SHARP DRESSED MEN: sound engineer Linden Hudson co-wrote much of the material on the ZZ Top ELIMINATOR album.” (end quote)

(ZZ Top never opted to give Linden credit, which would have been THE decent thing to do. It would have helped Linden’s career as well. The band and management worked ruthlessly to take FULL credit for the hugely successful album which Linden had spent a good deal of time working on. Linden works daily to tell this story. Also, the band did not opt to pay Linden, they worked to keep all the money and they treated Linden like dirt. It was abuse. Linden launched a limited lawsuit, brought about using his limited resources which brought limited results and took years. No one should treat the co-writer of their most successful album like this. It’s just deeply fucked up.)
(see full story at Linden’s website: )
Hear the original ZZ Top ELIMINATOR writing/rehearsal tapes made by Linden Hudson and Billy Gibbons at:…
LICKLIBRARY DOT COM (2013 interview) ZZ TOP’S BILLY GIBBONS SAID: “the Eliminator sessions in 1983 were guided largely by another one of our associates, Linden Hudson, a gifted engineer, during the development of those compositions.” (end quote) (Gibbons admits this after 30 years, but offers Linden no apology or reparations for lack of credit/royalties)
MUSICRADAR DOT COM (2013 interview with ZZ Top’s guitarist Billy Gibbons broke 30 years of silence about Linden Hudson introducing synthesizers into ZZ Top’s sound.) Gibbons said: “This was a really interesting turning point. We had befriended somebody who would become an influential associate, a guy named Linden Hudson. He was a gifted songwriter and had production skills that were leading the pack at times. He brought some elements to the forefront that helped reshape what ZZ Top were doing, starting in the studio and eventually to the live stage. Linden had no fear and was eager to experiment in ways that would frighten most bands. But we followed suit, and the synthesizers started to show up on record.” (once again, there was no apology from ZZ Top or Billy Gibbons after this revelation).
TEXAS MONTHLY MAGAZINE (Dec 1996, By Joe Nick Patoski): "Linden Hudson floated the notion that the ideal dance music had 124 beats per minute; then he and Gibbons conceived, wrote, and recorded what amounted to a rough draft of an album before the band had set foot inside Ardent Studios."
FROM THE BOOK: SHARP DRESSED MEN – ZZ TOP (By David Blayney) : "Probably the most dramatic development in ZZ Top recording approaches came about as Eliminator was constructed. What had gone on before evolutionary; this change was revolutionary. ZZ Top got what amounted to a new bandsman (Linden) for the album, unknown to the world at large and at first even to Dusty and Frank."
CNET DOT COM: (question posed to ZZ Top): Sound engineer Linden Hudson was described as a high-tech music teacher on your highly successful "Eliminator" album. How much did the band experiment with electronic instruments prior to that album?
THE HOUSTON CHRONICLE, MARCH 2018: "Eliminator" had a tremendous impact on us and the people who listen to us," says ZZ Top’s bass player. Common band lore points to production engineer Linden Hudson suggesting that 120 beats per minute was the perfect rock tempo, or "the people’s tempo" as it came to be known.
FROM THE BOOK: SHARP DRESSED MEN – ZZ TOP by David Blayney: (page 227): "…the song LEGS Linden Hudson introduced the pumping synthesizer effect."
(Search Linden Hudson in the various ZZ Top Wikipedia pages which are related to the ELIMINATOR album and you will find bits about Linden. Also the main ZZ Top Wikipedia page mentions Linden. He’s mentioned in at least 7 ZZ Top related Wikipedia pages.)
FROM THE BOOK: SHARP DRESSED MEN – ZZ TOP By David Blayney: "Linden found himself in the position of being Billy’s (Billy Gibbons, ZZ Top guitarist) closest collaborator on Eliminator. In fact, he wound up spending more time on the album than anybody except Billy. While the two of them spent day after day in the studio, they were mostly alone with the equipment and the ideas."
FROM THE BOOK: BEER DRINKERS & HELL RAISERS: A ZZ TOP GUIDE (By Neil Daniels, released 2014): "Hudson reportedly had a significant role to play during the planning stages of the release (ELIMINATOR)."
FROM THE BOOK: ZZ TOP – BAD AND WORLDWIDE (ROLLING STONE PRESS, WRITTEN BY DEBORAH FROST): "Linden was always doing computer studies. It was something that fascinated him, like studio technology. He thought he might understand the components of popular songs better if he fed certain data into his computer. It might help him understand what hits (song releases) of any given period share. He first found out about speed; all the songs he studied deviated no more than one beat from 120 beats per minute. Billy immediately started to write some songs with 120 beats per minute. Linden helped out with a couple, like UNDER PRESSURE and SHARP DRESSED MAN. Someone had to help Billy out. Dusty and Frank didn’t even like to rehearse much. Their studio absence wasn’t really a problem though. The bass and drum parts were easily played with a synthesizer or Linn drum machine." (end quote)
FROM THE BOOK: "SHARP DRESSED MEN – ZZ TOP" BY DAVID BLAYNEY: "After his quantitative revelations, Linden informally but instantly became ZZ Top’s rehearsal hall theoretician, producer, and engineer." (end quote)
FROM THE BOOK: "ZZ TOP – BAD AND WORLDWIDE" (ROLLING STONE PRESS, BY DEBORAH FROST): "With the release of their ninth album, ELIMINATOR, in 1983, these hairy, unlikely rock heroes had become a pop phenomenon. This had something to do with the discoveries of a young preproduction engineer (Linden Hudson) whose contributions, like those of many associated with the band over the years, were never acknowledged."
FROM THE BOOK: ​SHARP DRESSED MEN – ZZ TOP (By DAVID BLAYNEY) : "The integral position Linden occupied in the process of building El​iminator was demonstrated eloquently in the case of song Under Pressure. Billy and Linden, the studio wizards, did the whole song all in one afternoon without either the bass player or drummer even knowing it had been written and recorded on a demo tape. Linden synthesized the bass and drums and helped write the lyrics; Billy did the guitars and vocals."
FROM THE BOOK: "TRES HOMBRES – THE STORY OF ZZ TOP" BY DAVID SINCLAIR (Writer for the Times Of London): "Linden Hudson, the engineer/producer who lived at Beard’s house (ZZ’s drummer) had drawn their attention to the possibilities of the new recording technology and specifically to the charms of the straight drumming pattern, as used on a programmed drum machine. On ELIMINATOR ZZ Top unveiled a simple new musical combination that cracked open a vast worldwide market.
FROM THE BOOK: "SHARP DRESS MEN – ZZ TOP" BY DAVID BLAYNEY: "ELIMINATOR went on to become a multi-platinum album, just as Linden had predicted when he and Billy were setting up the 124-beat tempos and arranging all the material. Rolling Stone eventually picked the album as number 39 out of the top 100 of the 80’s. Linden Hudson in a fair world shoud have had his name all over ELIMINATOR and gotten the just compensation he deserved. Instead he got ostracized."
FROM THE BOOK: ​SHARP DRESSED MEN – ZZ TOP by DAVID BLAYNEY: "He (Linden) went back with the boys to 1970 when he was working as a radio disc jocky aliased Jack Smack. He was emcee for a show ZZ did around that time, and even sang an encore tune with the band, perhaps the only person ever to have that honor." (side note: this was ZZ Top’s very first show).
FROM THE BOOK: "SHARP DRESSED MEN – ZZ TOP" BY DAVID BLAYNEY: "Linden remained at Frank’s (ZZ Top drummer) place as ZZ’s live-in engineer throughout the whole period of ELIMINATOR rehearsals, and was like one of the family… as he (Linden) worked at the controls day after day, watching the album (ELIMINATOR) take shape, his hopes for a big step forward in his production career undoubtably soared. ELIMINATOR marked the first time that ZZ Top was able to rehearse an entire album with the recording studio gadgetry that Billy so loved. With Linden Hudson around all the time, it also was the first time the band could write, rehearse, and record with someone who knew the men and the machines. ZZ Top was free to go musically crazy, but also musically crazy like a fox. Linden made that possible too."
FROM THE BOOK "ZZ TOP – BAD AND WORLDWIDE" (ROLLING STONE PRESS, BY DEBORAH FROST, WRITER FOR ROLLING STONE MAGAZINE): "… SHARP DRESSED MAN which employed Hudson’s 120 beat-per-minute theory. The feel, the enthusiasm, the snappy beat and crisp clean sound propelled ELIMINATOR into the ears and hearts of 5 million people who previously could have cared less about the boogie band of RIO GRANDE MUD."
ULTIMATECLASSICROCK DOT COM: "This new melding of styles was encouraged by Hudson, who served as a kind of pre-producer for ​EL LOCO … … Hudson helped construct ZZ Top drummer Frank Beard’s home studio, and had lived with him for a time. That led to these initial sessions, and then a closer collaboration on 1983’s ​ELIMINATOR.
FIREDOGLAKE DOT COM: "I like Billy Gibbons’ guitar tone quite a lot, but I lost all respect for them after reading how badly they fucked over Linden Hudson (the guy who was the brains behind their move to include synthesizers and co-wrote most of their career-defining Eliminator record)."
EMAIL FROM A ZZ TOP FAN TO LINDEN (One Of Many): "I write you today about broken hearts, one is mine and one is for you. I have been a ZZ Top fan since I was 6 years old. I purchased ELIMINATOR vinyl from Caldors in Connecticut with the $20 my grandma gave me for my birthday. I will spare the #1 fan epic saga of tee shirts, harassing Noreen at the fan club via phone weekly for years, over 40 shows attended. Posters, non stop conversation about the time I have spent idolizing this band, but more Billy G, as he has seemed to break free of the Lone Wolf shackles and it became more clear this was his baby. In baseball I was Don Mattingly’s #1 fan, Hershel Walker in football, Billy Gibbons in music. What do these individuals have in common? They were role models. Not a DUI, not a spousal abuse, not a drug overdose, not a cheater. Until I read your web page. I read Blayney’s book around 1992 or so, I was in middle school and I was familiar with your name for a long time. I didn’t realize you suffered so greatly or that your involvement was so significant. It pains me to learn my idol not only cheated but did something so wrong to another being. I now know this is where tall tales and fun loving bullshit and poor morals and ethics are distinguished and where I would no longer consider myself to look up to Billy. I love to joke and I love credit but I have always prided myself on ethics and principles… I hold them dear. I wanted to say, the snippet of UNDER PRESSURE you played sounded very new wave and I may like it more than the finished product. Well that’s all. You have reached ZZ Top’s biggest fan and I can let others know. Bummer. Cheers and good luck. James."​

How To Use Male Psychology To Make Your Ex Boyfriend Fall Deeply In Love With You Again!

How To Use Male Psychology To Make Your Ex Boyfriend Fall Deeply In Love With You Again!

If you have been chasing your ex boyfriend since the breakup, you are using the wrong psychology. Men feel it is their place to do the chasing and you are just confirming his decision to breakup with you. Stop chasing him and learn how to use male psychology to make your ex boyfriend fall deeply in love with you again.

Men do not like to admit to making a mistake and trying to tell him he is wrong will make your ex more stubborn. Showing him you are needy and desperate is not making you very attractive either. If you take a step back and learn how his mind works, you will have a much better chance of getting your ex back.

Using male psychology to make him love you again is not hard to do. You just have to do the opposite of what your instincts are telling you. Your ex boyfriend is expecting you to think like a woman and express your emotions freely. But if you start thinking like a man, he will change his attitude in a hurry.

Men do not show their emotions so freely and to get back your ex boyfriend you will have to control your emotions. Stop trying to get him back and show him you are strong enough to accept the breakup and move on. Find things to interest you and spend more time with your family. You might have been neglecting them and their love and support will help you regain your confidence.

When he was first attracted to you, it wasn’t by just your physical charms. Your ex boyfriend was also aware of your personality. You were the type of happy and confident woman he wanted to share his life with. You probably ignored him at first and that made him desire you even more. When he started to chase, you played hard to get.

You were using male psychology at that time without being aware of it. Men love a challenge and a chase, and they will go after what they think they can’t have. Stop and think. If it worked then, it should work again. If you have not been having any contact with him for at least a month, your ex boyfriend is beginning to miss you.

When he becomes aware that you are making a life for yourself, he will think you don’t want him anymore. This will make your ex try to contact you, but ignore him and go on with your life. This will make him think he can’t have you anymore and the male psychology you have been using on him will make him fall deeply in love with you again.

How To Use Male Psychology To Make Your Ex Boyfriend Miss You – He Will Beg You To Take Him Back!

How To Use Male Psychology To Make Your Ex Boyfriend Miss You – He Will Beg You To Take Him Back!

After a breakup, one of the biggest problems women have, is expecting their ex boyfriend to think the same as they do. It is hard for a woman to understand why he doesn’t want to sit down and discuss their problems. But, men and women do not think the same and that is how you can use male psychology to make your ex boyfriend miss you. When you do, he will beg you to take him back.

A relationship breakup is a very emotional time for both parties involved. The problem is, men and women handle that emotion in different ways. As a woman, you want to stay close to him so he won’t find someone else. As a man, he wants to be left alone to sort things out. That is where the difference clashes. If you keep insisting on staying in contact with him, it will only lead to more hurt and rejection for you.

But if you use male psychology to make him miss you, he will beg you to take him back. Stop and think, you miss him because he took himself out of your life. You do not like being ignored, but a man simply cannot stand to be ignored. Your ex boyfriend cannot miss you if you are constantly around. So, doesn’t it make sense to use male psychology and ignore him? When you ignore him and find other interests, you will give your ex a chance to experience his life without you.

Being ignored and left alone will make your ex boyfriend realize that there is a void in his life. Soon he will see that the void used to be filled with you. That is when he will begin to miss you. Once he begins to miss you, he will also become aware of the love he still has for you. That will make him regret breaking up with you. By using male psychology, you have caused your ex boyfriend to experience a whole chain of emotions.

Women are always saying men are hard to understand. But you give them too much credit. This man that you think is hard to understand is really quite simple. Actually he is just a little boy in a man’s body. When a child throws a tantrum, the more you try to get them to be good, the worse they get. But, if you ignore the child and they think you don’t love them anymore, they will straighten up quick.

Your ex boyfriend is no different, he is throwing a tantrum. If you ignore him and make him think he has lost your love, he miss you and will beg you to take him back. It all begins with using male psychology to make him miss you.

Do You Worried About Her Male Friends?

Do You Worried About Her Male Friends?

Everyone can say that jealousy is hard emotion. It really is the “green eyed monster”. When you are seeing a girl who has a lot of boy friends, you will think that they are friends with her because all of them are attracted by her. You may not even be wrong. There are many reasons why guys will feel this jealousy is because a lot of men have ever thought of what things would make the romantic with their girlfriends.


Jealousy is bad MMMkay

So when it comes to women we may be easily swayed because of our own views toward our previous “friendships” toward women. Maybe some of her friends even include ex-boyfriends. This can easily peg your jealousy meter. The first and most important thing to do is not worry about it. Really. Jealousy will eat you up and may end up driving her away. Perhaps even into the arms of one of her friends.


The truth behind jealousy and confidence

The real truth is that if you are confident and show her a good time and do everything you can to keep her attracted you will never have to worry about those guys. Even if they are “wolves in sheep’s clothing.” If she wanted them she would be dating them, not you. Women want confident men. They like bold direct approaches. This appeals to a fundamental need. Becoming a woman’s friend will never let you “worm your way” into her heart. Your best bet is to be open and try to become friends with her friends also. If a guy does have intentions on your girl it is much harder for him to make a move if he is also your friend. If you make an honest attempt to befriend her friends also you can easily see if one of them truly is a sleazebag out to snipe your woman.


Never let jealousy get the better of you.

Be confident and you will keep women interested. Learn more tricks of the game and you will keep your woman attracted or attract new women.

Outlining a new story. Working title: "Homecoming."

[EDIT: After more outlining of this story I know this is not going to be a short story as I originally thought. I was looking to rework a short story I wrote back in April 2004—originally titled "The Green Man"—and it appears that my conception of the idea has developed and expanded considerably more than I expected. So, yeah, this means that I will soon be writing another novel. This will be the first that I’ve ever outlined, however. I’ve always been a "seat-of-the-pants" writer, but I’ve been trying different things lately, wanting to see if I can’t find something else that will work better for me.]


The Shape of Things to Come, by Audioslave
Well it’s late in the hour,
And a few more grains of sand will fall,
On the colorful flowers grown upon the dust and moss.
Now I fear the worst is near.
I hold them close and count their years.
I pray a ray of light appears,
To shine down on us here.

Break down in the shape of things to come.
But I’m moving on like a soldier.
And I’ll say it now, when all is said and done.
It’s not ours to break the shape of things to come.

There’s a crack in the clouds,
But only for a moment now.
Like an eye looking out,
The blue sky spies the roads we will go down.
I wonder what they hold for us.
I hold my family to my breast.
I fear the worst and hope the best,
Will come to see us blessed.
