I put on "Blank Planet" today on my commute home.  I couldn't listen it to it.  Man, it's brings me down.  Perhaps it's my current state of mind with the personal shit I am going through.  I put on "Deadwing" next.  It didn't move me like it did.
Perhaps I have evolved into a more intellectual, enduring, awesome human!  Just kidding.

Fukk I have no idea why I have fallen out of love with all of Wilson's stuff.

Perhaps it's just a phase.

Not sure when I will ever listen to RUSH again.

I'm just fukked up.

Thank God For Ghost.

I go through patches like this with my favourite bands. I have no idea when I will be in a Lacuna Coil mood, or as enthusiastic about Rush as I was, again!

I go around in circles, waves and roundabouts with my tastes as well! Right now, it is all about Toto and I am loving it!

TOTO!

Wishing Simon Phillips was still in the band.
Wilson's got this Earl, the poll is one-sided by far!

I know he does mate!  I love being the "Devil's Child" I mean the Devil's Advocate.  Listening to the reissues of Magna Carta Cartel tonight.  Amazing stuff.

Of course Steven Wilson would win by a landslide.  He's so "POP"ular now!  UGH!!!
You seem to resent Wilson these days mate what's the problem? :16ton:

I think for SW to end Porcupine Tree is ridiculous.  I mean really?  Gavin had to go work for King Crimson and the overrated prog band Porcupine Thief.  LOL!  I mean Pineapple Tree.  I mean well you get it.  CRAP!

Wilson is a fool.

I thought I was a mad genius with ADD.

Wilson's "To The Bone" is a pop record for the prog masses to embrace.  

The record isn't bad but come on man.

Wilson was the last great Prog guys in the business.

Now even he wants a fuckking hit record.

Rock, and Prog are dying every day.

METAL LIVES!

Love,

JUDAS FUKKING PRIEST!
I don't know Earl I actually like Wilson's solo stuff more than his PT stuff. And he brought in the mighty GUTHRIE GOVAN and Marco Minneman and they dominated! I feel that Wilson's solo stuff is a little more metal than PT too. It's in the attitude!

I know I know Pat.  You love Govan.  I'm not a big fan.  I love the SW solo stuff too mate.  "To The Bone" Blows.  Give me "Bad To The Bone" by Geoge Thorogood instead!  

Hypocritically I have my SW ticket to see him in SF in May.
I'm only a casual PT fan, I've got the last 5 albums and I enjoy them but I don't have any great longstanding relationship with the band so I'm not too upset about Wilson ditching the outfit. Seemed like PT was just a Wilson solo project anyway.

I understand Pat.  I do have a very long relationship with the band.  I have everything ever made by the band.  Everything. I've seen PT three times in my life.  My last time was with my ex wife and one of my best friends who knows John Wesley very well.
I had a backstage pass with my name on it to meet everyone in the band.  It would have only been like 30 minutes backstage.  I pleaded with the ex to just hang out for a bit so I could go meet everyone.

She flipped out.

Poop dicked Pat.

I could have met Steven and Gavin.

All of them.

Life isn't fair.

I will NEVER marry again.
She hates Wilson too! This should make you like him more! :lol:

HAHAHAHA!!!

I took Wendy to all three PT shows.  

I probably took her to over 25 Rush shows over the last 20 years of the Rush existence.

Pure waste of time and money.

Not only will I never marry again.

I will NEVER date again.

Women use you for your money if you are a bread winner.  Now I am a wonderful loser.

I'm too poor to date now and I'm very successful.

Like JB would say,  Blessed and Cursed.

I will be alone and happy yet never consumed with loneliness.

I have my girls.  I am successful in the gene pool of biological reproduction.
I have my parents.
My friends.
Many of you are on here too.
I have my pug Earl IV.
I have my stereo.
My drums.
My concerts.
My sports.
My right hand.

I'm 50 fuckking years young next month.  You told me Pat that it will be a breeze.  Of course it will.  I feel 21.  I act 10.  FUKK IT!

No woman will ever get in my way again.

What's that song by Yesterday And Today Pat?

"Game Playing Woman."

I've meet at least 21 of them over the last two years.

Solitude and independence is the way to go.

For me.

As for you young lads and nice girls out there in Rush Land I wish you all nothing but the best.  Find someone to love forever and have your offspring.

It's worth it all.

I may bitch and complain on here and yes, sorry but The Rush Forum is another release for me.

I have my girls.

"MISSION!"  Complete!

Signed,

RUSH
Earl you should have pretended you had no money. Then what would have happened?? Would she not put out then? :16ton:

Well my friend.

I had no money back in 1995 when I met Wendy.

We were both working at Safeway and going to college.

I had nothing Pat.  A small apartment and my Mustang.
My dad hired me when I got married and we had baby Zoe.
I was working seven days a week to make ends meet with her.

No.

Wendy and I had true love.

However over the two decades yes.  We grew apart and I became the bread winner.

Every dime I give her is worth it.  She is the mother of my girls and she is a great mother.

We just grew apart and she took me to the cleaners.
California State Law.

I know everyone on here thinks I'm some drunk child asshole drug addict, but I am actually a real man.

I'm stronger than ever after what I went through.

I will pay though the nose until I have too.

My daughters are worth more to me than anything this planet has to offer.

Why the HELL would I have want to waste my time or take a risk on another woman at my age?  Everyone is broken.  Untrustworthy.  Filled with more baggage than a Boeing 747.  Why Pat why?

It's up to the Universe.

If anything Pat, I hope you will find the love of your life someday.

Dude.

I had mine.

It failed.

I have no regrets mate.

I don't get it Earl, does this mean you feel like you have to put all your PT and Wilson albums in storage to make room for your Ghost albums? If not I don't understand what you mean? Can you not listen to both of these guys?

he's just messing with the super-serious porcupine butthole lovers

HAHAHA!

You are amazing my friend.  I miss you.  Of course you are right on the money as usual.

LOL at some still trying to say that To the Bone is a pop record.

Ghost has some good tunes, but that's still a couple hundred behind Wilson.  This isn't even a fair fight.

"Can You Find The Porcupine Inside The Ghost Tree?" Shouldn't be too hard, Earl: just stick your hand in there, and if it comes out covered with pointy thingies, there's your Porcupine.

:P

And on that note...

This album you type of is a masterpiece.

Hey dude, I'm watching Lyndsey Vonn kick ass on the slopes tonight.
I can't believe she dated Tiger.

She's an amazing skier.  The Jenny Finch of skiing.

I'm itching to go back up to Tahoe and hit Heavenly.  Not sure man.  I haven't skied since the snowboarders took over the mountains.  I was very good.  "Black Diamond" baby.

This poll is totally wrong!

Tobias Forge blows Steven Wilson away!

The new "Rats!" video seals the deal!

Both men are geniuses.  

However Tobias has taken his creative forces to a much higher level.

Wilson will always put out great tunes but will always be stuck playing in tiny venues.

Some think that the new Papa IV is cheesy with the fu manchu thing going on.

In my mind I think it's genius that Tobias changes his persona and image for each new album and tour.

The dude is smart.  Keeping it fresh.  Keeping the music new and exciting yet with still that old school melodic metal synth feel.

Steven Wilson is still his boring old skinny pale self.  Hiding behind his greasy long hair and black rimmed spectacles.

Just saying.

It's the truth.

I still support both artists.

Tobias blows Steven into oblivion.

Steve Wilson and Porcupine Tree have always bored me, even when I find myself admiring his skill. He's definitley talented, it just isn't for me.

However...I absolutely love Ghost. I revisit Wilson from time to time...NOTHING clicks. But every time I come back to Ghost I love them even more.

I mean LOVE!

Infestissuman is currently my favourite Ghost album.

Yep little brother.  I read you loud and clear.  I love all of the PT stuff.  The SW is good too but it can get dull.  Steven's new album is ok but very poppy.

It is what it is.  I'm still seeing SW on May 11th.  However it's going to be Black Christmas this Saturday dude.  I can't wait to see GHOST OPENING NIGHT!!!!!
