That idiot who played his copy of the Hemispheres picture disc is a fool. You don't play those discs, they have crappy sound and are not meant to be
played. They are collectors items. I know this as I have a couple dozen or so of them, the above one is, as far as I know, the only Rush one made and
I do own a copy of it(what Rush geek doesn't???). Why anyone would play it is beyond me. Go buy the cd, FFS!
Moving on, RushCon is in town but I ain't there. Lack of appetizing funds in my case. Loads of people from all over North America came in for it and
the show last night at the MGM Grand Arena, which has the sound qualites of dog crap.Band was pretty good though Neil did have a off night as he got
off in two songs(Stick It Out in the second verse and another in the second set that escapes me at the moment).
Crowd sucked, but that's Vegas, it always sucks here.
Seems all the cool Rush fans were partying up in the rooms. I was down in the casino for a few hours beforehand and all the folks I met were dunces.
Fair weather fans, though one I met was not a fool but so boring I couldn't talk to him. I couldn't converse with most of them as it's too
difficult. I get tired of explaining frakking everything when people get it wrong. I even went through this with a "friend", well, a friend of a
friend, who wanted to argue something after the show. I had the dunce pull the info up on his phone and stymied that fool(and he is a fool, loads of
fun because he's a fool but I digress) but it seemed everyone last night was just plain D-U-M dumb.
Cool thing the MGM did was play a bunch of Rush tunes throughout the day. While I was sitting there drinking O'Douls(hell if I'm going to get drunk
and not remember the show) I heard all kinds of cool stuff, from FBN to S&A. Nice touch.
My Sis and Bro-in-law went, their first time. They quite enjoyed it. I had them watch I Love You, Man so they would understand the outro video and
they really liked that flick too. Bonus.
Slappin Da Bass! And don't touch that button, Toots Magoot!!!!!
RASH is the best band the world has ever seen. The RASH t-shirts are frakkin hilarious but I got the Time Machine(black, of course) standard shirt
with the tour dates on it. I dig that clock.
Now it's time to put on Moving Pitchers LMMFAO!!!!!!
Oh, reggae Closer to the Heart and Working Man, along with the polka version of La Villa were also quite cool. Great visuals with Marathon also.
Well, RushCon is happening right around the corner. I'd kinda like to see it as who has the chance for that kind of shindig but oh well. I hope they
all have a good time.
