  2. Ron Howard is a huge Rush fan, btw (so I've heard)!
  3. That was my sign! I didn't make it, but I acquired it and held it up (what else do you do with a sign you want to take home?). I held it up again at the Austin show (5th row center) the next year. Geddy saw it and pointed to me and mouthed "you don't want that!". I shook my head yes and he replied with "no way!" then marched back to tell Neil. So Geddy has spoken. It ain't gonna happen...no way. Btw, if you made that sign, message me please!
  4. I knew the ovation was going to be big, but it was twice as big as even I was expecting. It brought tears of joy and by the end of the night, a bruise on my ring finger from clapping so much. Thanks to those that posted video. It was a night to remember. I can hardly wait to see the HBO broadcast. 'Radio.com tweeted "If HBO doesn't show Alex Lifeson's full speech send hate mail and demand to see it".'

  5. Hope so too because they really need our support since it's late on a Thursday and we're not exactly spring chickens, you know?! :-)
  6. Rush Fans In Central Texas will be meeting up on Thursday 2/28 to support Vanispheres, Austin's own tribute to Rush. They're playing a show with Queen tribute band, Magnifico, with projections by ResSpec, at Holy Mountain on 7th near Red River. Doors at 9:00, music at 10:00, $8 cover. RFICT will be meeting up for dinner before the show at 7:30 at Iron Cactus on 6th at Trinity. Please RSVP to help us and the restaurants plan ahead. We'll also be gathering for Happy Hour and Dinner before the Rush concert on 4/23 in the party room at Brick Oven Restaurant on Red River at 12th, starting at 4:30. After the show, we'll be at Star Seeds Cafe on the I-35 access road between 31st & 32nd. They serve breakfast and diner food 24 hours and alcoholic beverages until midnight. Also mark your calendar for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony Viewing Party on 5/18 and message us for the address.
  7. Sure. They're a hard bunch to convert, but they can hang out in another room, far, far away.
  8. No worries...they'll give you one when you get off the plane.

  10. QUOTE (wilb1972 @ Mar 9 2012, 08:34 AM)QUOTE Why does it have to sound country??? He's asking for video showing Alex's skills. Not Alex's country playing He also specifically mentioned his friend is a country guitar player -- so the assumption would be that he wants something country sounding to lure his friend into the world of the Lerxster. That would be an accurate assumption, but the guitarist friend in mention attended a music college, so he's pretty well rounded. Just didn't want to turn him off, is all, which is why it needs to be a DVD song.
  11. If you had a country guitar player friend that you'd like to play an instrumental Rush video for (to showcase Alex), which song would you choose and from which DVD?
  12. Yes, please do let us know when you visit Austin! Our current headcount for this gathering is 18 including the texters, emailers, Facebookers, Meetuppers, and Rush forum folks.
  13. QUOTE (driventotheedge @ Mar 4 2012, 01:53 PM)110"? Wow. My 55" LED with very nice surround (Denon receiver, Bose speakers, sub, etc.) feels inadequate right about now. Fukk I wish I lived nearby. Very nice of the host to invite strangers via a fan site to his home for this. (Most) Rush fans are the best!! RFICTers gather fairly regularly, so we're not too strange to each other, but yes, these hosts are particularly great friends to have (and not just for that whopper of a TV!). If you ever come to Austin, let us know and we might just throw a Rush party just for you!
  14. QUOTE (clem @ Sep 25 2011, 09:27 PM)I'm pretty sure the DVD won't be out in September. Look around this BB, it's being postponed until at least December. Unless we're thinking about two different things. You may have to postpone your party. Then again, what do Rush fans need a new release for, just 'cause they wanna throw a party ? Clem An edited version of the concert will premiere on VH1Classic on Wednesday, which is why we're having a party. We'll have another one for the theatrical release, 'cuz that's the way Rush fans do it in Austin! Only the Blu-ray version has been delayed. Here's the scoop from RushIsABand: Rush Time Machine 2011: Live in Cleveland Blu-ray release date pushed back UPDATE - 9/25@11:55AM: Reader David_MSP did find a Best Buy listing for the Blu-ray, which shows the release date as November 8th. Amazon is usually first with any release date changes so things should start to shake out with other retailers' listings in the coming days/weeks. According to Amazon.com, the release date for the Blu-ray version of Rush's upcoming Time Machine 2011: Live in Cleveland has been pushed back all the way to December 20th - just barely in enough time for Christmas (thanks angiodan). The DVD version is still listed with a November 8th release however. There's no explanation for the delay but it's possible this could be due to some kind of exclusive early Blu-ray release deal - similar to what was done with the Moving Pictures Deluxe edition earlier this year where Best Buy released the Blu-ray version one month earlier than other retailers. Best Buy currently has no listing for the Blu-ray at all though, so maybe there's an exclusive deal with another retailer such as the Rush Backstage Club (who currently still has a November 8th release date listed) - or it's just a universal delay for some other reason. More information as we learn it. Last week Rush revealed via a press release that a 2-CD audio companion to the concert video would be released on November 8th - the same day as the DVD/Blu-ray, along with a package containing only the live tracks from the Moving Pictures album titled Moving Pictures: Live 2011, available only in vinyl or digital formats. The press release also contained details regarding the DVD/Blu-ray bonus features, and announced that the film would be getting a theatrical release beginning October 26th. In addition to that, VH1 Classic will be premiering an edited, 2-hour version of the concert as part of their Rush Hashanah celebration on Wednesday, September 28th.
  15. QUOTE (nobodys hero @ Sep 20 2011, 10:41 AM) I just read the latest from RIAB: VH1 will be airing a 2-hour concert culled from the footage as part of their annual Rushashana program on September 29. Although this was talked about last week I'm finally believing it. From the VH1 Classic press release: "Rush: Time Machine" premieres Wednesday, September 28 at 8PM ET/PT Filmed in Cleveland in April 2011, the "Time Machine" tour was an evening with Rush, where the band performed new songs, classic hits and, for the first time ever, performed the "Moving Pictures" album in its entirety. NOTE THE DATE: 9/28, not 9/29. Don't be a day late!
  16.
