(Meanwhile, the 'always' voters have taken a slight lead over the ding/ting/ping-slacking competition)...

:blah:   Folks, that was Mr. JD from the Cincinnati area where Rush got their big break.  He says he always called it a ding.  Anyone have a response to that?

Very kind and thoughtful of you not to mention the two shame of shames who voted "What are you talking about?"  ;) ;)

I think they should turn in their Rush Fan Club membership cards and key rings immediately.

May they see the light, in due time...

(And when they do, when that light comes on...may it be accompanied by the sound of "ping!").

Cleveland, not Cincinatti. Ding is just my opinion. My buddies always called it a ding too. But we did a lot of good drugs back then.

I'd like to phrase my response to that in the form of a question, Alex...

JD, you live in the Cincinnati area?? I'm in Dayton.

I drive about halfway to Cinci for work every day.
No. I think Lorraine meant Cleveland. I'm from the Akron area but moved to Georgia almost 30 years ago.

All right, that makes sense. I knew you went to the Atlanta R40 show, and I didn't think it was a long haul to get there, for you. (It'd be about eight hours each way, for me).

Very sad that there weren't more votes in this very important poll.

I was surprised at that, too. I wouldn't think that voter apathy would run so rampant even among Rush fans, too, but... :huh:

Hemispheres would certainly not be the same without the ping/ting/ding.

I should have put this poll in the Rush forum instead, but .... one of the poll police might have reported me!  :ph34r: ;) :lol: :cool:

JD, I apologize.  I'm lucky I remember my name and address these days.  Which comes in handy in case I get lost.  :codger:

I know someone in another thread asked you (I think it was Chica) where you lived.  I thought you had said Cincinnati area.

I don't recall ever doing the ping that often when listening to Hemispheres. Usually, if my hands are free, I'm taking a two second break from playing air bass when the ping hits.

All right, I guess it's a little less than half way- Franklin. (But I live a little farther away than Dayton proper, too).
