I certainly cannot compete with #9. I have never met a member of the "holy triumvirate" in my life. So, instead I am going to have to change the subject.

However, I can definitively say that I had one of the best meals in my entire life at Feast last night.


I had ordered the following items: One order of the Ricotta pancakes as an appetizer, a salad with cherry tomatoes, sliced red onions and bleu cheese and shallot dressing. Then, for an entree, I had ordered, the piece de resistance- 2 orders of those magnificent Shrimp Tacos, with sliced avocados. I cannot say enough to praise them adequately; those shrimp tacos were absolutely out of this world! For dessert, I had the Lemon Madeleines.

I am sorry, but i am going to have to differ with you on that. If I had heard "Lessons" playing on a stereo, I would either immediately place my hands over my ears, or if i had them with me, don a pair of headphones, or offer the vendor money for that recording so that I could place it somewhere where it would never, ever, ever, ever be reached. In my honest opinion, Rush should have deleted that song from "2112" permanently and offered it up to AC/DC (after all, they are definitely worthy of such a great and generous gift). ;-)

Yeah, I read that, I just wasn't sure if you were actually serious, because... Internet.

That's very cool, thanks for the updates.

#14, so, did you actually talk to him or am I missing something? INQUIRING MINDS WANT TO KNOW.

Just had to mention... got lunch at UB Dogs today in Chicago. They have a little stereo kicking out some music. I hear the distinctive Geddy wail... Lessons! Well thought brought a smile to my face.

They only have one Rush song on their list; I have found this to be extremely disappointing. Meanwhile, these guys:


have seven Rush songs on their list. By comparison, The Beatles have 39 songs and The Rolling Stones have 21. For goodness sake, AC/DC (a band whose music, I detest strongly) has 8 songs on their list. I think that Rush aficionados can do better, I could list several, but I am wondering what you think?

Sweet! The Grand Finale for Sarnia On. fireworks for Canada Day was set off with none other than RUSH 2112 played in sync.

Happy Canada Day to America's hat from Canada's underpants! Remember, underpants is at least 15% funnier than underwear. I don't know why, it just is link

There's a compilation album that came out in late March 2014 titled 'ICON: Best Of Canada - The 1980's.

It features 'Limelight' by RUSH and 'Take Off' by Bob and Doug McKenzie featuring Geddy Lee, along with other classic Canadian songs.


I'm listening to the compilation album in honour of Canada Day today.

My top 3 reasons why Canada rules:
1. Rush (obviously)
2. Kids in the Hall
3. Trailer Park Boys
