Happy International Rush Day!
9:11AM EST | comments (18) |

International Rush DayToday is the 21st day of the 12th month - often written as 21/12 in many parts of the world. It's the Winter Solstice and the occasion has also become a sort of unofficial Rush holiday among fans over the years. Last year it was particularly significant and widely recognized because the year was also the 2112 pre-centennial, and even Rush themselves got in on the action. This year the festivities promise to be a bit more muted, but it's still always an occasion worth celebrating. What better excuse do you need to listen to Rush all day long, watch Rush DVDs, wear Rush paraphernalia, and otherwise celebrate Rush fandom? To make it especially significant, do something extra special at exactly 9:12PM this evening; 21:12 in military time. Happy International Rush Day!

Happy International RUSH Day and to the late Frank Zappa who would've celebrated his 73rd birthday on the same day.

Neil Peart selected music to play before the band's concert on the Time Machine Tour and 'Peaches En Regalia' by Zappa was on the list.

Damn, missed by 2 minutes. But my computer clock was telling me it was 9:12.

Oh well, every day, hour and minute is Rush time anyway.

Never be another band like Rush when they're gone. Red Barchetta R30, the Best ever. Magnificent audience response crowd dancing waving Alex starting to travel from ESR towards the ESL and Geddy smiling towards Alex (who were the road crew there at that time, Ryan, Jack The Secret..) at 4:10..I cry for joy.

Happy Rush Day!

Running the Time Machine BD (at maximum volume) here while cleaning house for Christmas.

I just can't watch the Clockwork Angels BD anymore... the bass is too muddy. :(

Happy Holidays Ed and Everyone!
