  1. Such a band thing, and heard. We've both been through it probably a million times.
  2. You are so right about that YYZed performance. So good. So very, very good. Cool take around that era. That is my favorite Rush era, and I'll have to pull my old music mags off the mothballs to revisit as I am able. Thumbs down around Gail, but I'll keep checking your site. Enjoyed the band immensely, and will catch you in the future. Had promised to come out, in particular since I grew up in NT on top of everything else, and wanted to close the loop.
  3. It's interesting that you mention hot drunk chicks. I started with the Rush shows in the mid 1980s, and it was mostly a sausage fest. Not that there's anything wrong with it, says the heterosexual male / Seinfeld enthusiast.
  4. Yeah, I forget the thread where you mentioned this. I would love for you to tell me the story someday. I hated the rap in the title track, but thinking through some more, Rush moved in a more approachable / AOR direction during the Atlantic years. "Animate" also comes to mind as a bouncy track. I'm gonna miss you in NT in November. My mom is not doing well at all at the moment, and my sister and I are trying to figure out how to manage two parents who are in their 80s, and who have a steadfast refusal about entering assisted living. Massive challenge.
  5. HAHA, good, so I would become capo regime of grilled cheese. The key with what I mentioned is light on that combo and heavy on the cheese, because it's a grill cheese after all. You get the punch when you bite the sandwich, and a punch after the cheesy goodness that the sandwich provides. It's not like I'm recommending pineapple on a pizza. HAHA!
  6. Getting promoted to east sales engineering leader with a 50k bump, on my birthday (yesterday), for a solid tech startup, really made my day.
  7. It qualifies as a contraceptive / chastity device. Best guess, of course.
  8. I admit that I don't listen a lot of new music. Part of the issue is that I put a hard stop on listening for enjoyment as I work on my music or produce / mix for somebody else. And the other part of it is that I *strongly dislike* the artificially loud nature of modern music. Big Data, though? Yeah, it's got the artificially loud delivery, but it also hits that sweet spot of the 1980s -- that I loved back in the day.
  9. Interesting choice by @Simon, but I admit that while Rush was (and remains) highly influential to me as a musician, it's not a groove band. A groove band causes me to shake my man butt. Neil Peart played with too much precision, something that I envy to the nth degree, but Bonham is a guy whose groove had more of an influence on me as a player. Stewart Copeland too, of course, but I certainly can't play like that. *drum roll* (pun intended) @Draconatorcan/will correct me on this, but my recollection is that "Grace Under Pressure" was recorded at a time where Neil Peart and Stewart Copeland were hanging out and/or Peart listening to a ton of The Police. And it shows. "Losing It" from "Signals" is a slow dance tune. Gosh, I've listened to basically all of the Rush albums. Will need to boggle through this a bit more.
  10. Fascinating concept from @Draconator, and yes, I think that Rush is great. Discuss. Still thinking through.
  11. I accept this challenge. Let me think this one through! HAHA! (Will make a thread in OTW)
  12. People dance to Rush? What am I missing here? I see Michael Jackson doing his tunes, weirdo that he was, and I get the dancing. But how does one dance to "Lakeside Park", "A Farewell to Kings", or "Temples of Syrinx"? As you know, I am a huge Rush fan, but I'm really confused about their danceability aspect.
  13. If you have the clap, I think that there is immediate expulsion.
  14. Beasley, outside of JA17, was my favorite player for the Bills in 2019 and 2020. The Thanksgiving 2019 game, as I ran back and forth between the house and the smoker (smoked two turkeys, each with crispy skin) is a personal favorite. He got hurt and lost a step or two. I'm not even weighing in on the COVID thing. I'm 51 now, and while am back into pretty good shape again, I'm not running the mill or the street as I used to. I'm glad that he latched on for an opportunity this season. I think that he's a good dude who has his own POV, which I respect, but you can't expect miracles in terms of physicality as you grow older. Godspeed to Beasley, well, unless he screws us in the SB, at which point I will harsh on him for his COVID stance (HAHA).
  15. If only I was getting into Miami on Sunday. Getting into Miami, newly promoted, for a work event, on Monday. Go Bills!
  16. Holy Christballs. But, yeah, I get this. First, you know that I was semi kidding, right? In any case, for the (well deserved) vitriol of the Bills during their drought years, I think that the only functioning unit at that time was their... marketing department. Why would the team sell out games with EJ Manuel, some other dude, or Taylor as QB? They should get Nobel prizes or some *****.
  17. I hope that the team is not filled with literal killers. Kill the Buffalo fanbase, and then I guess there's a rebrand in San Antonio or whatever. Kidding, of course. Glad that Von's on the team. I have no idea how far they will go this year, but it's gonna be a fun ride. That much is guaranteed.
  18. I say 4 catches for 5 yards, his head pops off at some point, but in a lucky bounce, an yet-to-be-named player catches the pass on the rebound, and scores a TD. They sew the head back on, and next week he has 5000 yards. Book it.
  19. I believe that you stop this offense by Causing spinal injuries to everyone Dropping a nuclear bomb into "The Ralph" A Hindenburg re-enactment right before halftime Giving everybody COVID Outside of that? Not sure.
  20. Well done, as always. Look forward to this on the weekly. Make it faster / earlier in the week, would ya? HAHA.
