  1. My Walmart had one copy, that I grabbed up. I would have went to Best Buy, but they open at 10am, and I had limited time, being at Best Buy was unfeasible at 10. Lucky me.
  2. 3 My first was the Time Machine 2010 Steampunk one I got at SPAC 2010/2011 charcoal red gear one I got on clearance at rush.com. I also have the "RASH" shirt that came with the Time Machine Blu-Ray at BestBuy because I couldn't resist. I also have a plan red shirt that I figure is about as close as I'll get to a Hold Your Fire shirt.
  3. I'm pretty good at remembering things, I'll probably be able to do all of them. That said, I don't like the sound of my own voice, so I don't sing along, unless I all alone and somewhat out of my mind. I've already got Headlong Flight down, though it did take a bit longer than usual. I've got 5 months between the release of CA and the Buffalo show (bought my ticket today), I should be set, unless they make Dog Years part 2. I'll go with 90%.
  4. QUOTE (limbo @ Apr 22 2012, 12:52 AM)i log on using two computers and throw tickets back until i find something in the first 10 rows it has worked everytime. My plan as well. I know that they release more good seats as time goes on, I'm not sure how I want to go about it, but it can't hurt to sit there next Saturday. I signed up for the Newsletter and didn't get an email. Besides I had a bad experience last time. I actually yelled at my computer when I saw it on RIAB. Though many people have had a good experience.
  5. $91, $66, and $46.50 at the First Niagara Center in Buffalo according to the First Niagara Center website. That's less than I thought it would be.
  6. QUOTE (J2112YYZ @ Apr 19 2012, 06:42 AM)The Buffalo show goes on sale the 28th and of course it's on the week I don't get paid I'm fine with the Saturday sale date, I won't be at work. ...I do get paid that week too.
  7. a dollar for a better version, yeah. Besides I think I have a couple dollars in Amazon credit anyway.
  8. First listen: ok it's good Second listen: love it. Caravan was the same way
  9. I've listened to them enough that 1 more time won't hurt, plus by that time it will have been over 2 years, what's 10 more minutes. Besides I'm sure Headlong Flight will have received plenty of plays by then as well, but I'm not skipping that either.
  10. I just assume everything on the internet is a lie on April fools day.
  11. Pink Floyd, they actually got me in to music. I never really searched, and I didn't like what was on the radio. It was Pigs (Three Different Ones) that hooked me, and the strangeness of their discography really got me. That explains my avatar. hey had a giant inflatable pig for the concerts from Animals on. It became a symbol of Roger Waters departure when it got tied up in legal fights and the band put a giant genitalia on it. Other bands that can lay claim are Porcupine Tree (and Steven Wilson in general, but his best stuff is Porcupine Tree) and Dream Theater has recently become an obsession of mine. Also the standard cadre of Yes, The Who, Van Halen, Pearl Jam, and such that make up more of the list but it's really muddy.
  12. VH1 Classic's birthday present to me.
  13. Countdown, fitting that today is the last shuttle launch (weather permitting)
  14. Might as well put my cat here, even if she is impossible to get a good picture of, I had to take about 50 before I got this ok one. If the picture is too dark she looks black, too bright and she can't stay still...plus laser eyes (I bribed her with everything from treats to catnip) I ended up getting this one by distracting her with a flashlight. Here's Claire (who turns 5 months old today) http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r75/Chrysalii/SDC10256.jpg Even this picture doesn't get her most prominent marking, a white/cream splotch that goes from her chin down to her upper chest, but it gets the 2 orange stripes on that side, and her black whiskers are hard to make out. I need to get more/better pictures. She is a really good cat though, just still an energetic kitten.
  15. ...where did my kitten go??
  16. I can't top this one. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=paQ0wjTTrBE (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles)
  17. Math, in fact looking at the list it's the only one I wish I pursued more during school. Especially since I really enjoyed it. Shows how much of a lazy student I was. I also enjoyed science, more specifically weather (a natural science). I wish I was smarter, so I wouldn't be only able to ooh and awe at science's magic tricks.
  18. Rush is really pushing me to get a blu-ray player.
  19. have to rest up, and get my internetting out of the way. I'm moving tomorrow, and won't have internet until Thursday.
  20. Pink Floyd Rush Porcupine Tree may be up there someday, but it's too new to me (just started listening to them last week).
  21. Winning by only a couple months (beating The Who Sell Out) The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn (Pink Floyd) Release date: August 5, 1967 (UK) My birthday: September 28, 1987 so... 19 years, 11 months, 23 days

    High Water

    I always liked it, I just assumed it got ignored/disliked because it was after Tai Shan.
  23. I can't really think of any, but then again, it only makes sense for me with Freebird.
  24. About 2 years ago I started to listen to them as a discovering fan. It started with a local rock station...It was the station I listened to at work, this was back with their more mixed active rock format (a almost equal mix of old/new, now they don't play older stuff nearly as much). Anyway, this station used to play Rush, a lot, going 4 hours without a Rush song was rare (oh how I wish they would do that again). They would play all of the Rush singles, including one that got stuck in my head. All I could remember was one single line, but it was unlike any song I've heard...a Google search on that line brought up Distant Early Warning. After that I went and got the whole Grace Under Pressure album, and immediately became a fan. However I was merely a casual fan at that point, dabbling in their more well known stuff, and touching upon a few lesser known tracks. A few months I stumbled on to the Trailer Park Boys episode with Alex. This didn't really do anything for me as a fan, but I was also a blooming Trailer Park Boys fan at the time, so it was very cool, and worth mentioning. I didn't really become much more interested in Rush until one great coincidence. I was bored, and flipping through the TV, and on one of the channels, probably VH1 Classic, they were playing what I would later find out to be Rush in Rio, I recognized Geddy. I happened to stumble on it at just the right time, it was right before the song that would absolutely blow me away, and make me a the fan I am now. Right from the beginning of Natural Science I was hooked for life. Flash forward a few months to the end of August, State Fair time. Walking around the fair, and toward the Grandstand gave me a dream that would become a reality a year later, seeing a Rush concert there, which brings us to this past April when the tour dates were announced. It was probably the most ecstatic I've ever been for reading some announcement on the internet, a dream come true...well maybe not a dream, since it wouldn't matter if I had to travel east on the thruway a couple hours to see them, but the thought definitely went through my mind. That was a lot longer than I thought it would be. I just always thought that the strange coincidences that surround me with regards to Rush to be extremely cool, which is probably why I remember it so vividly.
  25. I keep thinking what this topic would be like if 2112 wasn't included. Mine isn't on that list.
