  1. You're missing the point: it's Ged who's talking about playing again. He brought this up, not fans.

  2. Eric McCormack, who hosted the Geddy shows in Boston and D.C. last week, has been served with divorce papers from his wife of 26 years. The classic “irreconcilable differences.” He had the Boston crowd sing “Madrigal”. Of all the songs in the catalogue…. I wonder if that was the last straw for her.

  3. I'm pleased to report that My Effin' Life has made #1 in the UK book charts (Like most Rush albums it will probably nosedive out of the top 10 after a week But still a commendable effort). I got ahold of it this weekend. It's much more solid than I was expecting, beautifully produced but a weighty tome. Fall asleep reading it in bed and you're liable to do yourself an injury! I wasn't expecting the extent of photographs throughout, they have done a great job of enhancing the story, and I've only read a couple of chapters. Flicking through it though, as a proud Ayrshireman I was delighted to see the book ends with Ged looking out to the Firth of Clyde

  4. I'd like to humanize addicts by mentioning this- for some occupations, the stresses of the job do cause people to become addicted. A relative of mine got heavily into methamphetamine abuse when he took a job that meant long work hours and long drives.

  10. That's one of the things that really surprised me the most about this autobio. The fact that Geddy really let go of that stereotypical "Canadian politeness" and let his true feelings be known about people, things, and situations that he didn't like. I liked that, I found it to be a really refreshing look into who Ged really is as a person. Sure, he's a sweetheart, but he's just as willing as anybody else to hate people who disrespect him or treat him like shit or take advantage of his kindness. Kinda reminds me of the old saying "Never mistake kindness for weakness." Another thing that was pretty eye-opening was the fact that Geddy had to deal with his fair share of crazy obsessed stalker fans, like the guy who was convinced that all of the songs on Presto were written about him...And the fact that some kid literally broke into Geddy's house in hopes of meeting him was just insane to read about.

  11. So, I just HAVE to share this little event. I was just down in Duluth and purchased the hard cover of the book. No audio version so I will still have to get that. After leaving Barnes and Noble, we were driving around and stopped at a pharmacy and got a pop and a couple of things. The cashier noticed the Canuck accent and asked if we were visiting and how was our stay? I said, as I always plug the band whenever I can, that we were down to shop and that I had gotten a copy of Geddy Lee's new book at the mall because it wasn't up in Thunder Bay yet. She gave me a blank look and I said "He's the singer from Rush?" She politely nodded and said "That'll be $21.12". I chuckled. Then I realised she was being serious! All my life I notice anything referencing 2112 as I am sure we all do, here on the forums? I looked at the till and sure enough, the amount owing on the little window was exactly 2112. I made a bookmark out of it and it will stay with the book. Cool, huh? Edit: And can I please ask, from where are people purchasing the audio book as a CD/Hard copy? I want the option to use in different devices. I googled around and there was a copy on Amazon, but there must be an actual official site for purchasing? Rush.com, Geddy this and that, I don't see anything official to get a CD as such? Thanks for any affirmative suggestions.

  12. Ok, after seeing the reviews and opinions of many others, I am engaging in a humiliating climbdown and have ordered the hardcover....I'll let you know my opinions of it when I read it. Feel free to let the flaming commence

  13. Ha! I took this seriously at the beginning and thought "I'll have to look these up, I haven't heard of them!"

  15. I use cumulus and stratus normally, but I sometimes change things up and go with cirrus, cirrostratus, mammatus, nimbus, fractus, altostratus and even stratocumulus now and again. And once in a blue moon I'll use a cumulonimbus capillatus or a cumulus mediocris or even an arcus.

  33. Oh, and very much worth noting -- Paul's guitar work on several of these songs is very interesting and accomplished. I kinda feel like this project has given him an opportunity to explore the instrument more than he seemed to on the earlier albums. His musical fingerprints are all over this album in a good way.

  34. Finally managed a full listen through uninterrupted. Fishtail definitely jumps out. The obvious Primus nods in there duly noted. ;) I like the musical idea of the song that followed (Bite Marks), but Mike's vocals are just a bit too muddied so I'd need lyrics for that one. The opening track and the intentional dissonance I found somewhat off putting, but I wouldn't say it was failed execution maybe just a couple overdub choices that may have created a bit too much attitude/tension. Very ambitious mix of styles, sometimes within the same song. It feels like a natural progression from the past couple albums. I'd say an incremental bump in the mix quality, very little jumps out at me when listening critically. The drums are improved, though still sometimes a bit mechanical overall I thought they felt more 'live'/session player. Your vocals worked but I might have EQ'd and effected them to give them a bit more meat. We could do a mix session sometime if you'd like I could remote into your computer and we can tinker with The Wheel or one of the other tracks I thought needed a bit of adjustment/different strategy. On the other end of the spectrum, Mike's vocals seemed to always have a bit too much effect on them. Sometimes less is more, which allows the moments where effects are used to help elevate those moments with greater impact. Anyway, degraded into rambling about mix engineering.
