  2. QUOTE (Digitallware @ Jun 4 2012, 09:30 AM) Clip of Alex Lifeson performing the Star Spangled Banner, circa 1970 Pretty hilarious. Hopefully everyone realizes the audio is not authentic to the video. Clever joke, nonetheless.

    Red Barchetta

    Weird, my lyric sheet reads, At the one-lane bridge I leave the giants stranded at the riverside Then I drive off a cliff and die
  4. I remember listening to Permanent Waves when it first came out and thinking the band had caved from the pressure to "go commercial", so yeah, PW gets my vote, too. It was the beginning of the end.
  5. I had a "Rush is a band, damnit!" bumper sticker on my truck.
  6. QUOTE (Dscrapre @ Feb 17 2012, 11:51 AM) Pretty sure that "The Stars Look Down" is about this very topic. I'm sure there are others too. Interesting. The Stars Look Down seems very pessimistic...the lyrics, to me, are about asking for meaning and getting in response a lot of indifferent silence, and coming to realization that what we'd previously believed as far our signficance in the universe is not correct, whereas Sagan's words are about realizing that "we're all in this together" and that we should work together to our mutual benefit rather than our mutual destruction.
  7. QUOTE (GUP1771 @ Feb 13 2012, 01:28 PM) Forgive me, but could someone point me to a good example of a Rush song that features Alex playing arpeggios? I probably would realize it instantly, but still. The stuff that he does at the beginning of Red Barchetta during the vocals...he's picking the notes of the chords in way that adds a bit of melody and movement. Same thing with the chorus in Limelight. Like others have said, it's a trademark of his.
  8. I like the old man and the dad...the son and his sidekick are annoying...especially the son.
  9. QUOTE (rushgoober @ Feb 22 2010, 09:07 AM) 13th Floor Elevators (favorite group starting with a number ) I had a high school teacher turn me on to this band. He himself was a high school student in Austin in the 60s. He said they were amazing.

  11. The wife and I tried to watch it a couple of nights ago...turned it off out of boredom though.
  12. I liked the shootout at the end of Silverado.

  15. My job title is Business Systems Analyst, but really I'm a database/web developer for the healthcare division of a large multinational corporation.

  17. QUOTE (tangy @ Aug 18 2009, 10:17 AM) Well who amongst us has actually seen a rush tribute band? please spare us all the lame attempt at humor by saying dream theater. I for one have never seen one but really I never had to the chance to do so. I do know there several rush cover groups out there. Have you seen a rush tribute band, who were they and were they good? I've seen a couple. I've also played in a couple. So I guess that I've seen (from one perspective or another) about 4.
  18. QUOTE (circumstantial tree @ Jul 6 2006, 07:33 PM) QUOTE (JohnnyBlaze @ Jul 6 2006, 10:10 PM) QUOTE (Slime @ Jul 7 2006, 10:48 AM) Nobody would dare do a remake of Gilligan's Island, thankfully. I'm pretty sure it is too ingrained into the national consciousness for anybody to accept other actors in those roles. I hope you're right. BUT it didn't stop them from making a reality show based on GI. And there were a few tv movies made after the show was cancelled that didn't use the same GINGER actress. That would be Tina Louise who played Ginger. I think there was some friction behind the scenes regarding that actress. In the seventies, she played on The Stepford Wives movie and Look What's Happened to Rosemary's Baby. She was such a hottie in her day!
  19. I voted for movies based on video games. One other category is movies made from tv-series. How long 'till we have a 6 Million Dollar Man movie (Johnny Knoxville or Jim Cary, you decide)? Or a Love Boat movie?
  20. QUOTE (GeddyRulz @ Jul 2 2006, 06:39 PM) Hey... if you like Heavy Metal, you may also like one of my favorite animated movies - Ralph Bakshi's Wizards. It's been panned in every movie guide, but it has something of a cult following. I'm into it, and I own it. I saw Wizards in the theater way back when it was new. I liked it, but I was maybe 12 at the time. Not sure if I'd like it now.
  21. QUOTE (GeddyRulz @ Jun 20 2006, 05:24 AM) Alex's most emotional guitar solo EVER. Great guitar work throughout... very moody. Alex said the solo was heavily influenced by Steve Hacket.
  22. QUOTE (Planet X-1 @ Jun 1 2006, 05:26 AM) QUOTE (JARG @ May 26 2006, 04:58 PM) Another favorite musical moment is Alex's flub near the beginning of Closer To The Heart (studio version). The intro is played on a 12 string and Alex accidentially strikes the same note twice during the intro. Fer shame, Alex doesn`t make mistakes ! Your ear-needle just skipped !
