1. You own every single damn rush DVD, even though it's the same thing about ten times through (and it's good each time!)


um....yeah unsure.gif

QUOTE

2. You picked up bass because of Geddy Lee, and then realized how f***ing hard it is, especially his licks.


ummm......yeah i tried once

QUOTE

3. You start playing air drums to a Rush tune, and everyone else thinks you are crazy (chances are, you ARE crazy)


mostly nobody is around smile.gif

QUOTE

4. You sit and watch each cd in the TRF banner and can predict each album that's coming up, along with the year the album came out


WHo on this forum CAN'T do that?


QUOTE

5. You used the song "Beneath, Between, and Behind" to help you memorize your prepositions in school


umm...no

QUOTE

6. Geddy's voice isn't that bad, is it?


No, it's unique

QUOTE

7. You have EVERY single Rush DVD sitting next to your computer, and all of them are on your iPod


Not me!

QUOTE

8. You drive two hours JUST to see the three guys on lawn seats


....?

QUOTE

9. You can identify a Rush song/show simply by the guitars/basses Geddy and Alex are playing


of course, who can't?

QUOTE

10. You rejoice when you go to Rush concerts to find out that you aren't the only people who do these things mentioned


I've never ben to a rush concert fists crying.gif

QUOTE

11. Neil is the best drummer, hands down (he is!). And no bassist will ever out-bass Geddy (they won't!).


^a true fact

QUOTE

12. Any minute reference to Rush makes your day


pretty much

QUOTE

13. You wonder how the hell they make those sounds on the records, only to figure it out when you see them live


okay


QUOTE

14. You sing the instrumentals, just like the crowd in Rio


umm....sometimes eh.gif

QUOTE

15. You have more Rush on your iPod than you do videos (Rush videos count as Rush, not videos)


Yes

QUOTE

16. You are listening to Rush as you read/type this and are playing air instruments/singing between points. Crap, this thread is distracting me from watching the Pass in full screen!


It's like you know me ohmy.gif

Guilty to almost all, especially "singing" the instrumentals.  yes.gif  

One night my friend and I "sang" La Villa Strangiato in it's entirety.   653.gif

It was intense.  

But fun as hell.    laugh.gif

You know you're a Rush fan when...

1. You've been stared at in stores for singing Rush songs too loud.

2. You're friends come over, you insist on playing Rush the whole time whether they like it or not.

3. You've actually gone on a Witch Hunt

4. You have memorized The Boys In Brazil documentary word by word.

5. You can answer any question you're asked with a Rush lyric/quote.

6. You have your very own Rush theme song.

7. You've given people you know their own Rush theme songs.

8. You accidently call someone Geddy, Alex, or Neil.

9.

I just did this yesterday:

It's raining/thundering/lightning and when lightning strikes you yell, "DID YOU SEE THAT 'CHAIN LIGHTNING?!'

You know your a true Rush fan when...

You sweat harder then Alex at a concert.
You bought Rush's discography on tape and vinyl just because you can.
You can sing the solo from I Think I'm Going Bald.
The Boys in Brazil from Rush In Rio changed your life.
You know you will cry when Rush does there last tour.
Rivendell is an amazing song!
You celebrate Bastille Day.
Had your own roadtrip to Lakeside Park.
You compared Anthem the book to the storyline of 2112.
Your 2112 post on any forum is a reason to celebrate.
You can air keyboard any Rush song.
You own all of the Rush compilations even though you already have them on cds.

R30 is technically more of a DVD than a CD (unless you purchased the deluxe set like you and me), though it's debatable as it is for sale on iTunes. But then you'd have to go listing DVDs as well, though those are not in the banner.

And you forgot Archives (though it's not in the banner either).

2. You get excited over soup.

You always have soup before sound checks. That's really important. And sometimes you have soup after soup, so you have two soups. Yeah.

You not only make a necklace out of dice and skull beads, you wear it.

Bonus points if you're female

Double bonus points if you're thrilled because the whole thing worked out in a three-on-three pattern  biggrin.gif .

Edit: Triple bonus points if the skull and dice beads really are made of bone...

I guess I'm just lucky then, but most of my friends are into Rush. The ones that aren't want to kill me because I quote songs all day long... Maybe I should stop that. But oh well...
