What? You didn't want ME to jump out of your cake?(Visual- the woman in There's Something About Mary and a large bottle of mind bleach)

Does this mean you are old enough to be President?

Happy BD kiddo

The way I see it anyone who can play a 12 string guitar gets major props in my book. EVH is good, but he doesn't have the range of subtlety that Lifeson has.

Van Halen is Van Halen. I like Van Halen, but everything they do is the same stuff...different album. It's so NOT like that with RUSH. They sound different (but the same...definitely RUSH) on every single album. It's hard to describe really.

You'd ned to get some of their albums and listen to each one all the way through to understand how they can be unquestionably RUSH, but not sound exactly the same every single time like so many other bands. RACE gets it. Maybe he could explain better.

Heh. I do that most days anyway. ;)

But I need to get a new job, and that likely would entail much less internet screwing around.

Of course Mimi....

RUSH RULES!

or the long answer. All rush albums are concept albums, not always in the theme of the songs (where the album tells a story), but in the musical style of the album. 2112 is in no way comparable to Snakes and Arrows. The style of the music is completely different, one album is ballads and the other is almost acid rock, but both albums are uniquely RUSH and immediately identifiable as such.
If you read or watch interviews of the band you learn that each album is an experiment into a new way of expressing their talent. And NO, you cannot say that about all bands. Most bands have the same musical style across all their albums and cannot deliver the depth of what RUSH delivers.

My coworker just told me that his brother’s HOA has decided to DNA test all unpicked-up dog poop in the HOA, so they can find and fine the owners. But… how is that supposed to work? THen you have to DNA test all the dogs. Wouldn't you have to get a court order to draw blood from the dog against his owner's wishes?

And it’s not a gated community (heck, it’s just Edina, Minnesota), so I could live across the street from the HOA, and walk my dog on their property and leave dog poop behind, and they wouldn’t have access to my dog to test it. WTH? DNA tests run about $500 last I heard. How much money are they going to spend? Wouldn’t it be cheaper to just quietly hire someone to pick up the dog poop left behind (quietly so no one RELIES on it; you don’t want people just leaving the poo there b/c they know Joe will be making the rounds tomorrow).?

Oh yeah I LOVE Nancy Wilson. I was going to mention her actually, but then I kind of got on a RUSH thing, and well, you know, it's my happy place so I kind of lose track of everything else when I'm there.

See? I knew you'd be able to explain it well.

I saw an interview with Geddy Lee a couple years ago and they were talking about A Farewell to Kings. Geddy said it was a hard album to put together because they were doing things that were (at that time) beyond them musically. Um...no dude, you guys freaking nailed it. Might have been hard, but they definitely rose to the occasion.
