    It was a late Autumn Night and I was up watching a video of guy playing Cygnus X1 on a Ukelele. He got to the part of the song where the talk about flying Northwest of Pegasuses and heading for the heart of Cygnus. It was then that my dog wanted to go out, so I took him out. It was a clear night and I could see those constellations, from the song. It was then I noticed a Satellite fly right through Pegasuses and across Cygnus. This happened right before the first time I saw them in Concert. I knew it was going to be a great show!

  1. I remember Rushgoober too! He got a lot of folks riled up and left a few years after I started visiting TRF. No diss intended, I just remember it because I was new to the site. I remember Rushgoober too! He got a lot of folks riled up and left a few years after I started visiting TRF. No diss intended, I just remember it because I was new to the site. His music progressive rock knowledge was unreal. I remember he would post lists of his favorite songs and albums and it completely changed my view of music. Would love to seem him come back.
  2. Well, this was fun catching up with everyone, but the American Honey has taken its toll on me tonight. Good Night to all my Rush friends! Signing out from the great state on North Carolina
  3. 21:12 to all my fellow friends on the West Coast. Before I give my toast, I have favor, can some of you in the hollywood area get a biopic going for Neil Pert, starring Tom Hanks! Drink Up! TO NEIL!
  4. 21:12 to the frozen mountain tops in the Mountain Time Zone. 2nd glass of American Honey, and jamming to Moving Pictures. TO NEIL!
  5. Getting close for the toast of my fellow Mountain friends!
  6. I was impressed by Neil's drumming (he was the best drummer ever), but it was his lyrics was I related to the most. I thought that was his true genius. Lyrics such as: You can choose from phantom fears And kindness that can kill I will choose a path that's clear I will choose free will Really kicked my ass into full gear and set me on the path to the man I am today! What are some ways Neil's/Rush's lyrics inspired you?
  7. Dude, don't beat yourself up with this kind of thinking. I know when I heard that they were done touring, I completely shut myself off from the Rush community. It was like I just didn't care about them anymore. Now I've been kicking myself for taking those actions and having those thoughts. Tonight I'm celebrating the life of someone who was one of us. An outcast, a misfit, someone who felt, experienced the same things I felt, and some how was able to put coherent words to them. TO NEIL!
  8. I think I discovered this site in 2011. It was so refreshing seeing that there was a group of people who enjoyed the band as much as I did! I remember when Clockwork angels was coming out. Wow the excitement on this site, back then! The music of spheres forum is my favorite. I learned of so many great bands from those topics! It's sad that it took the death of a truly great person to bring back to this community, but I am glad to see so many familiar names! Where's Rushgoober?
  9. This is true! Glad that there's a community like this, where everyone can share their grief and their memories. Forgotten how much Rush has affect my life but others as well
  10. :hail: maybe I'm drinking a little to much. God, I miss these emoticons on the rush forum!
  11. Time stands still for friends in the Central Time Zone. Drinking American Honey listening to Hemishoeres now. TO NEIL!
