I consider a true Rush fan...

Someone who can listen to any album from beginning to end and appreciate
what went into making each song both lyrically and musically.

Someone who loves to see/hear any reference to the band anywhere and gets as giddy as a school girl being asked out for the first time by the first string quarterback.

Someone who is PROUD to where their Rush apparel anywhere (certain exceptions for weddings/funerals/bar mitzvahs, etc.)

Someone who listens to Rush to put them in a good mood.

Someone who likes soup (preferably twice a day)

Someone who cannot help play air guitar/bass/drums when Rush is playing.

Someone who has a great sense of humor and integrity!

I think that sums it up well.

I have all of that except 1 and 5. I don't like soup (this wasn't even a prequisite until the Rio DVD came out, and I was a fan before that so I should be grandfathered in lol) and I can listen to MOST albums from beginning to end...but there are a few song I skip, especially on RTB.

Man that WHOLE thing is about me.  And most definitly the soup.  I have soup for breakfast, lunch ( on weekends cause I have school), and dinner.  ANd sometimes for desert.  I eat, drink, and sleep soup.  Oh gota go, my beef barley soup is ready.   2.gif

Well I managed to link Hemispheres in with Antony and CLeoparta in my english class! It was hard, but I managed. It was based around the lyric "The universe divided as the heart and mind collided".
I was rather chuffed with myself  cool.gif

Not only do I do that, I listen to them in order!! (Rush, Fly By Night, Caress of Steel, 2112.... and so on right up to Feedback) usuall on my way to and from school, 1 CD usually lasts me a day, so it takes me over month to do this.  2.gif
