  1. Neil's hometown of St. Catharine's held a competition for a statue to be placed at his park pavilion to honor Neil. Link to the winning design below. (Sorry, can't post photo directly for some reason tonight.) Interestingly, it's not the one of him at the drums wearing the kufi hat that a bronze artist worked on last year. Instead, they went with 2 statues- the young 1970s Neil, and the mature Neil. Piles of books are featured prominently in both. https://www.stcatharines.ca/en/news/artist-selected-to-commission-artwork-for-neil-peart-memorial.aspx

  4. Rush - 2112 My favorite album from my favorite band with my favorite song from that group (the title track). Also has my 10th favorite song from the band (Something for Nothing). Not a bad song on the album. In fact, I really like all the songs (yes, even Tears and Lessons - good songs that fit perfectly on the album). A masterpeice.

  7. Rush before Geddy Lee: meet the bass player who stepped aside Some really interesting info here, I've never heard his side of the story before. I knew he went on to play with Red Rider, but I had no idea he played on Put Your Hand in the Hand when he was still a teenager and Rush were still playing church basements. WTF.

  9. The Guys have created a mustard with Henderson Brewery and Kozlik Mustard - RUSH Golden Ale Mustard. Weird? Cool? I think it's cool. I do like their mustards, why not give this one a try? It's not listed on the website (Hmmm...) but is listed on RUSH Backstage, and I have ordered from there lots so I think it's a real thing. Alex offers a funny description of the science and significance of this new addition to the Kozlik category.

  10. Rush - Signals Its got my second favorite Rush song (Subdivisions), another all time classic (New World Man), several near classics (The Analog Kid, Losing It & Countdown, although Countdown is defiantly weaker then the other 2 songs I mentioned) plus some other good songs. Quite an album!!

  17. Rush- Presto Rush- Roll The Bones I still wish Presto could get a remaster. It always sounds like a pirate copy to me. I'm not as big on the album as I used to be, but I enjoy it. Roll The Bones has my heart. I love everything about it.

  18. My dislike for Nirvana is well documented so I don't have to go on about how overrated they are and how they lowered the standard for all of rock music for several years since they made it ok for bands to suck at what they did and still get played on the radio. David Grohl was the only talent in that band. Kiss is the other big one for me. All marketing and image and very little substance. There are also a number of overplayed classic rock bands that I never got into. The big thing for me is that there are a lot of old hits that still get played on the radio and I can't understand why so many years after it's relevancy they still get played. Some hits are eternal but there are a lot of them that should have been left behind in the era they came out in.

  21. Rush - Hold Your Fire My 3'rd favorite album by my favorite group. Not a bad song on it. Not only that, I like every song on it, Yes, I like Tia Shan & have come to like High Water although Tia Shan is much better. Not only that, it has 3 stone cold classics (Under Lock And Key, Force 10 & Time Stand Still) with Time Stand Still being my 3rd favorite Rush song.

  27. I'm on vacation down in Disney; ONLY to help my sister, who's a single mom of a 5 & 1 year old. I cannot say a word, or express myself; she questions nearly every move, gesture, question i may have. She doesn't stop. I'M EXHAUSTED. I love her & her children VERY DEARLY. There's no way she could've driven from New Orleans, and done Disney Springs, Jurassic Park, Universal, Sea World, Magic, Animal and back at Magic tonight. We leave Saturday. GIVE ME STRENGTH. I'm trying.

  29. Judas Priest- Sin After Sin I love this album. I think it's rarely spoken of as a favourite by fans, but it was my first favourite Priest album. Have to say, other records have overtaken for me now. Last Rose Of Summer is an atypical JP song, but it's in my top five. Beautiful ballad. I love the soft whimsy it has, and the atmosphere is beautiful.

  33. Rush- Vapor Trails (original) Rush- Hold Your Fire I really don't like the remix of VT. Sorry/not sorry. It's as flawed as the original and its flaws are less appealing to me. The original has a messy production but the searing, white heat of the production really drives the emotionality of the songs home for me. Could be improved, but so far it hasn't. Hold Your Fire remains a stunning album, but I definitely feel these days that I favour (as I think I always did, honestly) Grace Under Pressure from this era.

  34. Disgusting Madonna has hit a new low. In her latest IG video, she actually licks water out of a dog bowl and squats over a bottle of sriracha sauce. I can't believe I used to idolize that idiot when I was a kid. It's stupid the things she does for attention, trying to stay relevant. I was gonna post a visual, but I didn't wanna get banned from this place.
