Well, my lovely children have gotten me sick again. I spent all afternoon, a long hot sticky afternoon, snuggling on the couch with them and thought we were in the clear. Everybody was feeling better and asleep until 12:45 when Nunu woke us up to inform us she had to throw up.(Why do they do that?!) Barely made it to the bathroom but not quite to the toilet. <sigh> Now I've woken up with the same feeling, however *I* will make it to the appropriate bathroom fixture.

Like an old boyfriend told me, "Most bands write songs. Rush composes music."

Heh. From a friend whose kid turned 2 in April:

Malcolm saying his prayers last night:

God bless momma.
God bless daddy.
God bless nanas.
God bless papas.
(from here it changes every night.)
God bless all my friends.
God bless bagels.
Amen

Awesome choices. You're right, anyone hearing these will either get into RUSH or they never will. "Nobody's Hero" was Chris' favorite song. NOt "RUSH song," song, period.

I don't like cream cheese much, but I do like the cucumber dill that Bruegger's comes out with each spring. Plain bagels only, with cream cheese spread so thin I can see the bread through it.

(Bruegger's doesn't even charge me for the cream cheese!)

Do you enjoy/appreciate Rush more from listening to well produced studio albums or live performances?

My absolute favorite is from Einstein Bros. Whipped salmon cream cheese. Whenever I'm in Chicago, I gorge on that stuff. Used to get it all the time in college, but now I'm glad I can't get it regularly.

I made the mistake of taking it to class once. Had several people go "Dear God, what is that SMELL?". Whoops.

And I hate to laugh about an earthquake, but I just cannot see the word "El Segundo" and not think of Red Foxx and "Sanford and Son."

Refresh my memory as to how that fits in with Sanford and Son (I loved that show).

Fred (red) used to mention it. It was like a catch phrase for him "from here to el segundo". I think he just liked the way it rolled off his tongue. Like his friend who always said
"good goobely woo"!

I caught some Sanford and Son reruns about 15 years ago, and was shocked at the racial humor -- no WAY would that be allowed on a prime time sitcom these days, but back in the '70s it was okay!

If I'm just listening to a CD or something, I prefer a studio version, but that goes for any band. I'm not a fan really of "live" albums. However, RUSH live, seeing them...there's nothing like it. I can't explain it, you pretty much have to experience it. I've had people who had zero, less than zero interest in them go with me to concerts and come out a couple hours later devoted fans for life.

It happened to me that way too. Sorta. Way back in 1975 I had a friend who was into them. Keep in mind they didn't have a huge body of work at that point. He was always writing "RUSH" on everything (the way teenagers do) and one day I asked him what it was about. He played "Working Man" for me. That was it, all it took, just one song and I wanted to hear the rest of the album. Been a RUSH fan ever since.

Squishy - i think it just takes people a bit to figure out what the trigger point is, and then little feet need more steps to make it... i had issues as a kid with getting over-stimulatetd at sleepovers - a combo of too much sugar & excitement and not enough sleep - and getting sick to my stomach. at the ripe old age of 35+, i started figuring out in advance that i would get sick from fried food & alcohol (there goes fish fries...), adn could pin point wiht great accuracy when i would actually get sick.

give them time... at least they announce when they get up! ;-)
