I used my original copy of Vapor Trails as a frisbee; do I get a plaque or something?
I took a dump on my Snakes CD. It made it smell better.

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:

You have 10 kids and still find time to knit ??  Wow!  :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy:

LOL! Well thanks but to clarify only 4 are still home. BUT I have always knit so yeah I did even when they were all home and little. Also though the oldest is 30 and the youngest almost 6, so they were never ALL little at the same time.

Have you converted any of your 12 kids??? You maybe able to reach the magic number of 1237 with conversion points to off set your lack of tour points.

Why isn't this thread pinned yet for reference by future generations?

Unfortunately none of my 10 (not 12 :eyeroll: ;) ) have been successfully assimilated to Rush fandom but my oldest does like them. She even gets The Necromancer, but her musical tastes are wide and varied so not sure how much that counts for. Still trying though.

Maybe your oldest can be a character witnesses for you in an affidavit or something. I think the judges would consider your plea.

I'm close to 90% legal on the records

I already have CoS and don't listen to it. Where's my motivation to buy it? :lol:

As a millennial with 4 Rush shows, I'll award myself extra points for that

1. A TrueRushFan™ is Someone who has an appreciation for the majority of the band's body of work. A TrueRushFan™ doesn't disregard an entire decade or multiple decades of RUSH's career. People who don't like anything Rush has done since 1982 aren't true fans.

2, YOU MUST LEGALLY own 90% of the band's music/songs. Format doesn't matter.  

3. With exceptions for Millennials and EXTREME hardship you MUST have attended three live shows. Getting married and have two kids is NOT HARDSHIP.


If all three elements apply to you then you are TrueRushFan™. If not you are a more casual fan unworthy of the TrueRushFan™ honor. You may still be a nice person. The TRF has spoken, there will be no debate. 73 pin this post at your earliest convenience.

You are a true Rush fan if:

1. You can name your 3 favorite sections of their latest album, Lakeside Necromancer
2. If you bought a Dodge Caravan, just because of the song.
3. You can tell which of the 5 members are Canadien.

Yes I admit these are idiotic...but are any of the other measures any better?

Yes:  http://www.therushfo...™/#entry3975102

Only those who can't make the cut seem to complain.
