    Well, I've got a good voice. That's about it. I could probably play the triangle if someone gave me one.

  1. Oh no...this is so sad! I was recently wondering how Lorraine was doing,I knew she was ill but it'd been a while since I checked in here. I always enjoyed the interactions we had. She was a very nice person. Rest in Peace, Sweet lady. :rose:
  2. The entire lyrics to Natural Science but especially the last part... Wave after wave will flow with the tide and bury the world as it does tide after tide will flow and recede leaving life to go on as it was *Sigh* ...Sublime
  3. The problem I have with the lyrics on the last couple records, and it's a problem I've mentioned before, is the shoehorning of the lyrics into the music...like it used to be that when crafting a song, the lyrics fit seamlessly into the music. The tempo was correct for both in a way that was smooth and attractive. But the last couple of albums there was very little effort to fit the lyrics with the music, or the length of a sentence into the time frame of the alotted melodic bit (See Armor and Sword, The larger Bowl,The Anarchist, Seven Cities, etc) The result is an awkward blend of run-on sentences, ill-fitting lyrics (not in terms of content/meaning but clunky and awkward). That combined with the lower pitch to Geddy's tone (the funeral dirge, as I like to call it) just made both S & A and CA not as good for me. Not as well crafted as their earlier albums. Dont get me wrong, there are some excellent musical bits (the Anarchist is well nigh perfect musically, it's just when the lyrics come in that they lose me), it's just with some of the lyrics and lyrical bits and the way they fit, that I take exception to.
  4. Happy Birthday, Cub! It's a good day to be celebrating a birth. :ebert:
  5. Happy Birthday to someone who knows a good day to born when they see it! ;)
  6. Thanks everyone for the sweet birthday wishes! 'Twas a good day. ;) (btw, Tony...I may be old, but you'll always be older :poke: )
  7. An old-y but a goody...from 10 years ago ;) From one mildly pissed off and moody cancerian to another... Happy Birthday Tony! http://www.thegreatzo.com/xpmb/html/emoticons/poke2.gif
  8. that comes second for me... or TSS Well, if we're talking seconds...Distant Early Warning or Dreamline for me. Are you back for good? I don't know...I wander in, I wander out. I'm gone for a few months then I'm back for a spell. There's no set formula. Maybe I was stranded on an island for a while without internet! I mean, not that I was, but I could've been...there's no telling!! It's because you're traveling around in a flying saucer! Well, yeah... It's the only way to fly. But it does tend to mess with the time/space continuum. It's nice to be back though. ;)

  10. mmm going for the deep cuts there I think Vital Signs is underappreciated. It's actually one of my favorites off Moving Pictures.
  11. that comes second for me... or TSS Well, if we're talking seconds...Distant Early Warning or Dreamline for me.
  12. Grace Under Pressure tour, white w/ album cover
  13. Missouri, specifically the St. Louis area...seriously, I lived there for 6 years. Everything from completely clueless driving, no signals, bully merging (w/ no signals or looking), speeding and just generally not giving a shit who else is on the road w/ them... Just the worst. Instead of the Show me state, I started calling them the Me First state. Because thats' pretty much how they drive all the time.
  14. The best song (from this group), one that embodies the greatness of Rush, their classic sound...is The Spirit of Radio. You could pick something else... I mean, you'd be wrong, but still, I'm not going to stop you, if you want to pick something else. ;)
