A gleaming alloy air car will be here shortly to escort you from the premises.

Spotify Premium is $10/month, so I will eventually have paid more than everyone else for their music. Eventually.

I am good on the first two points. I own and listen to all the albums, yes even Feedback occasionally. I have purchased at least three copies in most of them and a few four in digital, CD, and 2015 vinyls.

I am gonna need a hardship waiver for the live shows, unless DVD's count? I have them ALL. :coy: It's hard to go to concerts; between babies being born (not just two BTW, I have 10) and a husband who hates my music, I never got a chance. I think I still qualify as a TRF. Hell I even have shoelaces. :lol:

But I would like to buy vinyls once I have money for it.
Considering the royalties they get for each spotify listen is diddly squat compared to the albums, and that you're paying for a buttload of other bands you may have to invest that $10/month for a few years...

I passed!
I feel like as excited and surprised as I was when I got by 1st grade.

I'm glad to see that owning three dozen Rush Ts, the bobble heads, a hundred bootlegs, and a Rush jockstrap for each day of the week were not required.

I hate Hold Your Fire (except Turn the Page), and don't own Vapor Trails or Feedback, however I have

-made my own Rush t-shirts on two occasions
-seen them 17 times in concert over the years since 1981
-been to Rushcon 3 times
-broke 5 jigsaw blades (or was it bandsaw?!) in 8th grade metal shop making a Rush sign in the Hemispheres font (sold at Rushcon for $80 in their charity auction).

What does all that get me?

You're lucky. There are only 2 or 3 other people on the planet that have Vapor Trails and Feedback with JohnRogers' autograph on them!

Oooh, that's right.  Lorraine and I have autographed items!  Lorraine has a pristine copy of Rolling Stone signed by all three, and (I'm too sentimental) I have a beat up vinyl copy of AFTK signed by all three guys in Buffalo.  Hopefully we will get our exemption !  (if we ever bother to turn it in  :D  :D )

Chica, that's right!  How could I forget about my autographed Rolling Stone Magazine - personalized by Neil Peart himself? :codger:  

It's still in the envelope that came directly from Key Arena. :)  Maybe even Geddy or Alex (or both!!!) :wub:  handled the envelope. I ought to have it dusted for fingerprints.  :yes:

Surely this accounts for something?

And i can't help it that 90% of my Rush stuff isn't legal.  :no:   I was lucky enough that some generous and kind TrueRushFan™ sent me so much to get me up to snuff and date on Rush.  :)  It was quite an education.  I home-schooled myself.  :codger:
