Why don't you just tell Ian Jane "FUCK YOU AND YOUR FUCKING WEBSITE!!"

Same thing...

I prefer to think of it as "tough love."

Ian will probably want to make this a sticky, I'm guessing.

And the men who hold high places must be the ones who start to mould a new reality closer to the heart.

Closer to the heart.

I wonder how the new album's coming along. I really dug the first two tracks they released from it.

I'd like to hear the new 5.1 mix of Moving Pictures. But not enough to buy it.

I'm all in favor of those who want to discuss Rush discussing Rush. I'm just not one of them. Because they suck.

Were any bands you like ever on a Mackenzie Brothers album?

Ian Jane

Nope, but at the end of Strange Brew when dude flies I think they go over Mark's mom's house.

haha Really? I was planning on watching that tonight. I'll look for the smelliest house on the block.

you should not talk about people's mothers. Unless they are hot and ripe for rape like your mother.

I was talking about the house, you dumb piece of shit.

Todd Jordan

Why would the house smell, unless the occupant smelled also? Don't be such a choad, Masshole.

Is it some kinda rule that if you get more than 5 posts away from the actual topic the thread is actually DOA at that point?

Todd Jordan
05-09-2011, 04:05 PM
Nope. No rule. Only beer snobs whine about it.

Nolando
05-09-2011, 07:03 PM
Which is it - beer or whine?

I like them both better than RUSH.

Paul Casey

RUSH goes well with both.

Another endless day
Silhouettes of grey
Another glass of wine
Drink with eyes that shine
To days without that chill at morning
Nights time out of mind
Chorus
Draw another goblet
From the cask of '43
Crimson misty memory
Hazy glimpse of me
Give me back my wonder
I've something more to give
I guess it doesn't matter
There's not much more to live
Another foggy dawn
The mountain almost gone
Another doubtful fear
The road is not so clear
My soul grows ever weary
And the end is ever near

I have been quite enjoying my "Moving Pictures" Blu-ray in lovely lossless surround.

Ian - do you at least like the instrumentals?

Ian Jane
05-11-2011, 09:28 AM
I'm kind of indifferent to them. I have respect for Rush as talented musicians and can appreciate the complexity of their playing but sometimes they get a little too 'oodly' sounding for me.

I just listened to Subdivisions and this vid hit my memory. I'm sure all you Geddy haters will like it. It's really great and an awesome use of a looping pedal. I know it's a few years old, but...

HAHA! (http://www.punknews.org/article/46449)

"Canadian rock icons Rush (http://www.rush.com/) have issued a cease and desist (http://bobcesca.com/blog-archives/2012/03/exclusive-rush-pulls-music-from-limbaugh-show.html)letter against notorious rich wing demagogue Rush Limbaugh (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rush_limbaugh). While radio programs are usually allowed to use music without seeking specific permission, the band argues that Limbaugh's use of the music is for "political purposes" which is not covered by the blanket license afforded to broadcasters. The band issued a letter including this:

The use of Rush's music in this way is an infringement of Rush's copyrights and trademarks. The public performance of Rush's music is not licensed for political purposes and any such use is in breach of public performance licenses and constitutes copyright infringement. In addition, the use of Rush's music in this manner implies an endorsement of the views expressed and products advertised on the show, and is in breach of not only copyright and trademark rights, but also, of section 51 of the New York Civil Rights Law. Accordingly, we hereby demand that you immediately stop all use of Rush's music and confirm that you will do so."

Agreed! Rush are asshats.

To once again quote a musician friend of mine (he was talking about Eddie Van Halen, but it fits for Rush too):

"They're great musicians with shitty taste in music".

Completely sums them up for me. Even the recent documentary couldn't warm me up to their music.

I tried, I really did.

Their shows are great. Glad to see more footage. Neil looks like Tom Hanks in Green Mile. Did he have a moustache in that?
Geddy wore a RASH shirt last go 'round.

Tickets for the 10/24 show went on sale today. We got some rad floor seats. I'll be in the middle of a sea of dragon t-shirts and ponytails.

They get a medal and the traditional right to hunt, kill, skin and eat baby seals. Not sure if they get one seal or each, or have to share.
