  1. it could be that the satanic church chose he symbol for sulfur because sulfur is closely associated with the devil and hell. but to then link Rush to satanism is an unjustifiable leap.
  2. Johnny Depp wins again but seriously, I really loved the monkees. i hope they're remembered more for the music than the show.
  3. QUOTE (Eikon @ Feb 27 2012, 02:59 PM) I have seen plenty of threads debating the symbolism of the pentagram on the 2012 album cover as being satanic or what have you. I have never really bought into any of that thinking, but I did notice something on the BU2B artwork that I think is worth discussing. Note the symbol in the center: http://www.2112.net/powerwindows/downloads/smartphone360x480/Rush-BU2B.jpg According to this website, that is the official symbol for Anton La Vey's First Church of Satan in San Francisco, and appears on the cover of the satanic bible. As a corroborating source, this website claims it is referred to as the symbol of Nine Satanic Statements and that its use denotes satanic involvement. I find it highly strange that this symbol would be used prominently to promote a song that is about being brought up to believe in God but ultimately rejecting him. Personally as a Christian, this doesn't really affect my view on Rush but I do find it a bit disconcerting. Why do you think Rush would choose to use this symbol and what are your thoughts on this subject in general? please tell me you're not serious
  4. http://www.npr.org/blogs/thesalt/2012/02/2...e-tabasco-sauce QUOTE "They crave [spicy] peppers, they crave sour and sweet things," says Jean Hunter, a food engineer at Cornell University. That means Tabasco sauce was definitely on the menu for space shuttle astronauts. Why this sudden interest in hot peppers? Part of the reason may be that after arriving in space, astronauts lose their sense of smell, which largely governs the pleasurable taste of food. An example of this is coffee. "If you hold your nose and sip your coffee, you're getting just a bitter liquid," says Hunter. Why do astronauts lose their sense of smell, and what's this got to do with a preference for fiery food? No one is sure, but there are some plausible ideas.

  6. http://gizmodo.com/5886507/how-a-man-survi...snow+burieQ-car QUOTE When a Swedish man drove down a deserted forest road near Umeaa, Sweden last December 19th, he was probably looking forward to Christmas. But that day, his car somehow became buried under a mountain of snow. He was trapped there for two months, suffering insanely low temperatures, with no access to food. Last Sunday, he was discovered. Alive. But how? When police arrived at the snow-covered car, they found the 45-year-old man emaciated and too weak to say more than a few words. The man claimed to have been in the car since December 19th, and had eaten nothing since that day. Weather reports show that temperatures in the area dropped as low as minus 30C during the period.
  7. I'd love to see smacks the frog get a trilogy.

    Any Demos?

    I heard a pre-release version of Xanadu once. It wasn't nearly as good as ESL version.
  10. QUOTE (Grover @ Feb 1 2012, 08:16 PM) This is not based on how much I like an album: Not Rush because it got the ball rolling and Fly By Night, while better, might not have. Not Fly By Night because it was Neil's first and continued to build fans. Not Caress of Steel because it set the stage for the angry statement of 2112. Not A Farewell to Kings because their progressive era was advancing and they played with conviction. Not Hemispheres because it was their progressive peak. Not Permanent Waves because it's when they started to be more like themselves and not an ideal of progressive rock (even though Hemispheres may be my favourite album). Moving Pictures because it was their commercial peak and some would say artistic peak. Not Signals because it marked the start of the keyboard era. Not Presto because it marked the start of the return to guitar-based rock and the canned backing vocals. Not Counterparts because it was a stronger return to guitar based rock and had great production. Not Test For Echo because it was Neil's first album after his re-inventing his drumming. Not Vapor Trails because it was their return from tragedy. This leaves: Grace Under Pressure Power Windows Hold Your Fire Roll The Bones Feedback Snakes & Arrows My vote would be for Feedback (the only Rush album I never bought), but if you feel that experiment was significant for their career, I would go with Roll The Bones... but tomorrow might be different. Wow! put a ton of thought into this. After reading your analysis, I've changed my mind, and I'm going with Hold Your Fire.
  11. Never saw it before. Have yourroadie run it back up the hill. classic.
  12. Yeah, my wife just didn't get the dryer thing. I told her just to go with it, but she was looking for some deeper meaning.

In addition, he's going to disgrace Freddie Mercury by portraying him in some biographical film, I heard. Great and you can't edit because I decided to exploit this little bug: javascript:emo_pop(); I agree, that's going to be worse.Although I think he can definately pull off the look, but he's going to blow that.

Ignore this post, I misread it! As it happens I did celebrate that 2/1/12! Don't worry about it, I ignore all your posts

    Neil's Clockwork kit

    it makes sense that the round clock face would go on the bass drum.

  17. QUOTE (Ovningskora @ Dec 26 2011, 04:01 PM) just kidding, it's going to be shit. this guy is terrible. javascript:emo_pop(); He was in Borat and Talladega Nights, but that's about it. There's no way this will beat the Chaplin movie.
  18. Good book and a good film adaptation.
  19. I think DS9 was the best series. Best storyline. Really the only one with a storyline except for Enterprise toward the end. Too little too late for that show sadly. I also think it had the most character development. The characters were completely different people at the end of the series compared to who they were when it started. Picard was the best Captain though...
  20. Meh. Watched one episode,the onewith the were-bears. it was crap.
  21. I tried to watch this show, but after 4 episodes it just wasn't catching my attention. So I gave up.
