  1. I think of him more as a favorite musician than favorite guitarist. I have no idea if that makes sense.
  2. I think some people call it "grammar shaming." I think you're better off critiquing the content. At some point over the last several years, proper grammar has become an ideological issue - something about how our so-called "formal English" derives from the rich merchant class of long-ago England, and so forcing it on people is discriminatory. Where I teach, some of my colleagues think you should no longer use the term "error, " but refer to grammatical "differences." Who needs clarity? Ambiguity makes communication more like an adventure!
  3. A youtube video called Buckethead Megaliths - so many great grooves!
  4. What was the name of that technology that a lot of us accessed for the final Rush tour - where people would hold their cellphones up and we could watch in real time?
  5. I hope you have had a great birthday! Don't go changin'!
  6. I just got a copy of the reissued vinyl. It sounds absolutely great - way better than the CD. Enjoying a great album even more!
  7. Hope it was a good one! Many happy more!
  8. I like it a lot. I also wish it was just a bit brighter sounding, but I think there are some damn fine songs on this record.
  9. Maybe not what you are looking for, but I would totally listen to an album full of this kind of interpretation:
  10. Fantastic. I picked up the record yesterday. Blown away with the first listen, and liking it more and more. I wish more of these albums came with a download so I could listen in the car.
  11. If there are any hints of bitchin' Lifeson guitar anywhere in there, I probably will pick it up. I'll prefer it more if the songs are decently strong.
  12. Happy birthday! Many happy more! I hope it was a good one...
  13. So sad to hear this. I haven't been able to get onto the forum for the longest time - I kept getting a 404 screen, but I figured out how to get back in today. Lorraine was so cool, and had great taste. If I could go back in time, I would make sure that she got her front row seat at a Rush show, just once. Here's to her dignity. She didn't suffer fools, but she was genuine and kind. :cheers:
  14. There are a couple of tunes on one of the later Asia records that are pretty good: "Holy War" and another I can't remember the title of. "Through my Veins"? Anyway, I thought they sounded like the "old" Asia.
  15. Happy anniversary! I'm a bit late. Thanks for all of your kindness!
  16. Happy anniversary - and here's to many more!
  17. If Dog & Butterfly doesn't win this, then I just don't know anymore.
  18. This made me laugh - more because of how Lee responds. You've probably all seen it already.
  19. For the first time today the b.m. looked like they describe rectal cancer stool - coffee grinds. And I had a lot of pain today, but I wasn't going to call my nurse back here. As it is, she had to come over first thing in AM to change the dressing again because I couldn't pull the water protector one away from the one protecting the tubes. She told me in order for her to enjoy Thanksgiving with her family and take good care of her patients at the same tme, she has to get up at 1:00 AM and start her rounds from home to home. Her daughter was going to cook the Thanksgiving meal. The nurse if around my age - maybe a few years younger, but a very devoted soul to her charges. "Till death do we part" she told me when she was assigned to my team. But I am determined not to give in to this. I am going to fight as much as I can. I am going to cook our own Thanksgiving meal tomorrow and do the best I can. A kind soul from my church went to the store for me and bought me all I needed and didn't make me feel like I put her out by doing it. My husband is finally getting it through his head this is no joke. He seems startled: now what is he going to do? :huh: I have nothing but admiration for you, cooking your Thanksgiving meal. :angel: :hug2: :heart: Wish we could all come over for a plate - I'd bring the homemade cranberry sauce! Happy Thanksgiving!
  20. That is never going to go away, Lorraine. A few years ago, I never thought I would ever say this about an online community, but the love and care here is absolutely genuine. We all care about you, and I would warrant that at any given moment in the day, someone here is thinking about you.
