  1. Hey! It's me, the GF! These are GREAT!!!! Please keep em coming. I'm new to RUSH, courtesy of cygnalschick, but have loved this fan community and everyone I've met since the first tribute show she took me to. And I got to see them live for R40. My beautiful woman proves to me every day how sexy and wonderful RUSH fans are. All that I've met are well-read and humble, too. I'm hoping to make this a fun project. So far, it's off to a great start!!!
  2. Hey all! So, my girlfriend is currently doing a research project for her college psychology class. She has chosen to create a survey that measures 'the sexual satisfaction of Rush fans' :-D She is tired of hearing the female Rush fans don't exist, and that male Rush fans are loners who can't get a date! Her professor's response to the idea was, "Do you think you can even find 100 Rush fans??" Lol I told her she should choose a clever name for the project...maybe include a play on words using Rush lyrics :-) I am wanting to get suggestions straight from you guys! Also, if you're interested in taking the survey I'll post the details here when they become available :-) Thanks for your help!!!
  3. Been awhile since I've posted here, but I gotta say: As a long time DT fan (since early 90's), I think this new album is one of their best. Whoever's saying it's not that good is simply nuts And as far as Mike Mangini goes, I love the dude I've seen them 3 times this tour and he is so much fun to watch play. He just has a great time playing and brings a whole new energy to the band. The guy is not arrogant, he's freakin' AMAZING, lol, a genius really. He can do things with one hand that most people can't do with 2 . I have nothing against MP, but Mangini's drumming and energy has sort of rejuvenated DT in a sense. I haven't really gotten into their last few albums, so I've enjoyed the hell outta this one And I got to meet the guys at a meet and greet. They were all very cool
  4. Haha, I'm planning to have them sign a poster for me. I don't think I'll bring up Portnoy, lol.
  5. I love so many genres of music, but Rush remain my favorite of them all. Besides Rush... Yes Dream Theater Iron Maiden J. Priest There's really too many to name here! These will have to suffice.
  6. Hi everyone! My friend and I are trying to sell our original tickets for the Bass Concert Hall show. We ended up getting meet & greets, so we gotta get rid of the others. I will say they were pretty pricey, but we may be willing to negotiate a little. Anyone interested please pm me. Much appreciated! -Luann Also, feel free to email me at Luannw1979@gmail.com

I had started to get a little burned out on DT, but this album has changed that. I'm f'ing loving it Favorites include: "On the Backs of Angels," "Bridges in the Sky," "Breaking All Illusions," and "This is the Life." Pretty damn amazing if you ask me!! Amen to good music! Good to see you around!!! Haha, thanks! I sure wish I had more time on my hands these days to chit-chat here on the forum. I'm back in school and stay pretty busy. Anyway, I'm not going anywhere!!

  9. I personally thought "Paradise Lost" was awesome.... hoping this one either surpasses it or is just as good
  10. QUOTE (-Ender- @ May 24 2011, 05:38 PM) You all get depressed AFTER seeing a Rush show? Really? What the hell are you gonna do when Geddy DIES? http://i1239.photobucket.com/albums/ff508/blackcc/cmonson.jpg Don't say such morbid things We all know it'll happen one day but let's not focus on that. I'm trying to enjoy what Rush still has to offer us until they truly decide to hang it up I think we ALL know it can't last forever, but the impression they've left on me personally, as well as how much they've enriched my life, is something that will be with me to the end "Celebrate the moment, as it turns into one more"
  11. Thanks for the responses ya'll. I'm actually on the track to getting serious help for this. Spent last night in the hospital and now have medical clearance to enter rehab
  12. Yes, this is totally random but I'm needing some advice from those who I feel I have the most in common with- Rush girls/women. I've been on this board for over 5 years now and have made some great friends here. Tonight I've done something that I vowed to never do again.... and I need to just tell someone. Who better than you Rush girls? So... without going into great detail, can someone share an experience similar to the one I'm having? - realizing you're not perfect, and in fact are weak. In need of advice
  13. QUOTE (Queen of Megadon @ May 7 2011, 08:38 PM) Hey Seatmate RGLT! I heard "Sad Song" today on the radio...it sounded like a 'grownup' version of The Cars. It pleased me. Looking forward to hearing more. I heard this song too and though it was The Cars. I really liked the sound of it
  14. QUOTE (g under p @ Jan 24 2011, 11:54 PM) I'll try to be brief.... I'm a nurse caring for a 77 year old patient who has altzheimer and a holocaust survivor. His 6 hour testimony is in the Holocaust Museum in DC. Some time after he told me his story of his survival I thought is was from a hollywood movie. Anyway, one day just to past the time I slipped in Grace Under Pressure and just let it play. When it reached Red Sector A I was particularly interesting in seeing his reaction. Surprisingly he had none he just quietly asked "play that one again". I did and the tears started to roll and I cried right along with him, all he could say was....."it's true, it's true". He asked what was the name of the song and I told him and he just shook his head. I printed out the words to RSA and he wouldn't stop reading them. He lost his mother, father and a brother. He was able to escape with only his sister and had to be seperated from her just to survive. That was almost two years ago and his wife not too long ago asked me to work with him again. I was the only one who could find ways to keep him calm in diffcult situations he faced every day dealing with this disease. He had to be hospitalized as the disease consumed his mind. I'm going to try and see him now that I'm back here in the DC Metro area just so I can maybe bring a spark back into his life. He was no rocker but he sure loved listening to that album just I do too. Peace That's a great story

Almost every song is great, and the guitar playing is just amazing, imo. I still consider it one of the better rock albums to come along in a long time then you simply hafta get the latest "Into the Sun" disc. Really great! I'll check it out
  16. I like it.... a good album to start the day with It's not my favorite YES album, but it's still a good one!

  18. QUOTE (-D-RocK- @ Oct 13 2010, 11:34 AM) I'm excited for our South American compadres. Enjoy the shows friends, and greetings from Canada.
  19. Last night here in Caldera, there was a caravan of cars driving around town honking and celebrating waving the Chilean flag Chileans never miss an opportunity to celebrate! I'm gonna miss it when I get back to Texas in December!
  20. QUOTE (different strings @ Oct 9 2010, 04:36 AM) QUOTE (Cygnalschick @ Oct 8 2010, 04:38 AM) I am wondering the same thing! I am in Chile and will be at the show here. I started a thread asking if any Chilenos would want to meet up beforehand, but have gotten no responses Hi there CC you are a lucky girl being in chile right now and enjoy the show. Hi DS! Yes, I guess I did luck out on this one. I thought for awhile that I wasn't going, but luckily I was able to make it happen. Can't wait to experience the South American crowd!
