I'll start off with this. I never said anything about this to anyone for some reason...

Back in the early 80's I was walking down this street at around 9 pm. It was a fairly busy street in the daytime but at night it was pretty quiet. So there I was walking down the street and all of a sudden I heard what sounded like RUSH! It was coming from the upstairs window of this house. It was 2112 blasting out! Temples of Syrinx! I stood around for a minute listening. Then a few minutes. l was looking around to see if anyone was coming. I felt like a stalker or a peeping tom! It looked like no one was around so I stayed there bobbing my head listening. I closed my eyes walking around outside this house and then this fat old lady suddenly emerged from this side street and I bumped right into her, that's how I knew she was fat because I couldn't see her properly! She said: "What do you think you're doing?" I quickly got out of there with RUSH 2112 still blaring behind me!

And now my secret is finally out...

Rush confessions eh?

I think most of us have had Rush dreams of some sort, myself included. One dream I had was about a decade back. In the dream I was watching some news report which was going to have Lifeson appear. It was unclear what the coverage was going to be about but I knew it wasn’t going to be him playing guitar or anything Rush related. I assumed it was going to be him at some charity golf event.

When the coverage began the press surrounded him. He was in golf attire and he was speed walking around a track field. The press swarmed around him asking him questions that I don’t even remember. But he continued speed walking around the track and answering the questions seriously. After 1 lap around the track he exited the same place he entered and that was it. The end.

WTF?!

Dreams.

That’s not a confession. That’s boasting.

When the first notes started at the concert I attended on the Vapor Trails tour, my eyes may have been sweating momentarily. (Props to Coach Mellor).

I remember dreaming I bought a Rush album and I cried to the brilliance of something that sounded like Janet Jackson and I kept telling everyone in my dream that Rush were magic and the album dissolved in my hands and I thought "wow never to be played again". I felt so honoured and I felt chosen. I woke up really confused and I've never forgotten that weird ass dream haha

I was at a liquor store and the girl behind the counter says, "cool shirt".

(I was wearing a beat up Teat For Echo Tour shirt, the one with the wolf on the front).

She says, "Seriously, that is a cool f#%*@$g shirt, I'll trade you a kiss for it".

So, I take it off and handed it to her.

She leans way over the counter and we have this sweet little embrace.

I paid for my bottle of Jack and said, "have a nice day".

She says, "thanks, you too sweetie".

I just found out this morning that the Sign of Eth is a real thing . . .  :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm:   Who knew?  (everyone but me, apparently  :lol:).

Me (reading Facebook post where someone said that they found the Sign of Eth in some Old English book):  WTF??  The Sign of Eth is real ??
Mr. blues: ( who grew up reading Once and Future King and all this Scandinavian stuff):  Yeah, it's like a D with a line through it.  Where did you see it?

(Falls neatly into trap of having to listen to By-Tor and the Snow Dog . . .  :lol:)

I figure she wasn't a looker otherwise I assume you would have asked for her number and the story would get more interesting.
