I wish I could eliminate "basically" from the English language.  People overuse that word almost as often as they overuse "like"...... :sarcastic:

My 24-year old niece has often narrowly avoided a good thrashing (from ME) for spewing "like" and "basically" so much.

Worse for me is the use of “literally” or “amazing”, especially the latter.


Someone: This tomato is amazing.
Me: Come on, it’s a f***ing tomato.

I wish people would just leave Neil alone.  He's 65... he's retired.  Stop being so selfish and ridiculous.  No wonder he stays away from fans.  I would too.

Personally I think they should have called it quits in 1988 and retained their dignity, but what do I know?

Who/What are you referring to?

4 pages of this thread so far and I’ve only seen 2 TRFers who’ve stated that they wish Peart continued. And HOW they said it weren’t even in overly “selfish or ridiculous” ways. Nearly everyone in this thread has accepted Rush’s retirement. Some of those same people are just joking around...because we already accepted Rush’s retirement a while ago and there’s not much else to do but muck about.

Like most people here, I kinda figured it was over. The TSS documentary outlined that pretty clearly which I think was the intention of the band creating it anyway. I was hoping for one last record but CA was a good way to end things. I’ll miss the concerts and getting together with other fans, but I think I’ll miss the anticipation of hearing new music the most. I feel fortunate that I was able to be there since the very beginning and they will always be my favorite band.
