*applause* Nice mountain you got there. VERY nice!

I scaled the frozen mountain tops
Of eastern lands unknown
Time and Man alone
Searching for the lost Xanadu

Makes me want to begin the day with a friendly voice and visit the Temples of Syrinx - and the Twilight Zone.

Soon I'll be finding my way back home to Red Sector A so I can roll the bones. But first, I'll need a passage to Bangkok. Although if I fly by night, I could be sailing into destiny. But closer to the heart, since I'm a working man.

Makes me nostalgic for the limelight of Cygnus-X1, where time stands still.

Maybe I'll visit Tom Sawyer in La Villa Strangiato. He drives a Red Barchetta and lives in subdivisions. His job is moving pictures but he does it with the caress of steel.

Tom's home airport code is YYZ (Ontario). There's a song with the same name - and the song's rhythm is derived from the Morse Code for 'YYZ'.

Oh, look at that time. It's almost 21:12. Better go - I'm in a rush!

Wow! You know your Rush. Saw them on their farewell tour a few years back...Love them all, but Neil Pearl is my all time favorite drummer

I saw them three times in person and many more times on YouTube. I think I own all but one studio album. Could be a lifetime favorite - probably is. It was such a treat to remember the songs when composing my previous response.

That's a 10-4 on Neil Peart. One up from Stewart Copeland. I'm glad he's drumming again after a break when he lost both his wife and daughter in one year.

Someone had announced his retirement (and the band, obviously) a few years ago, but Geddy said it was a false rumor.

Btw, 'Geddy' is the way his foreign grandmother pronounced 'Garry'. He was born 'Gary'.

Alex's last name is a literal translation of his own, foreign last name into English. 'Son of Life' or something similar. Been way to long to remember which order the two words were in originally. He made the news around 10 years ago when a cop showed up to his son's birthday party and broke his (Alex's) nose.

A while ago, I used to play guitar in an 'all' PINK FLOYD band. We only played Pink Floyd and Rush! So yes, I know a little about the Canadian Power Trio. After all, 2112 is not that different from Star Trek, in a musical way. The Elder Race returns from space exploration and re-assumes control of all planets in the Solar Federation after the Priests of the Temples of Syrinx repress all creativity. When I heard that part live I f#cking lost it.

And when he finds the guitar (and somehow learns to tune it). "Sounds that build high like a mountain, and notes fat fall gently like rain" - it reminds me of Planet of the Apes, when they find the cave with human artifacts.Then he kills himself in 'Soliloquy'. Powerful imagery, with music to match.

But that kind of thing started on Caress of Steel, with the Necromancer and Bytor (and the Snow Dog).

On Xanadu, they did their famous 'double neck duet' live. Geddy would switch necks to play guitar and back up Alex during leads. They both played Moog bass pedals to fill in strings and bass lines. In the studio, the birds in the intro were Alex's parakeets. And this was very Star Trek-like with the guy becoming a mad immortal man, waiting for the end of time to escape the Pleasure Dome.

The black hole Cygnus X-1? His ship, the Rocinante? And Olympus? 100% Trek. Cygnus X-1 was actually the first black hole discovered. The 'X' means X-Ray source in Astronomy.

Ooops. I hit the comment limit again and have to end this one 'early'. Just deleted some earlier text to allow room for this little ending. Better than cut off!

Wow, sensory overload!...Danger Will Robinson!...just shook the dust off this old Dark Side Of The Death Star template last night and thought it would be mildly relevant to this thread. We saw Rush on The Clockwork Angels farewell tour a couple years ago. I don't have much to add trivia wise, but, on a tangent, our golden retrievers had an unplanned litter last year on Halloween. We gave some of the pups Halloween themed names, most notably Frankie and Eyegor. After all the pups were rehomed (except Eyegore) I tried to rename Eyegore By-Tor which lasted all of a week when he was renamed Sidewinder (apparently By-Tor doesn't roll off the tongue) which gave way to Romeo not long after. Romeo is still Romeo and is still with us, but every now and then I call him By-Tor.

By some cosmic coincidence, I am listening to By-Tor and the Snow Dog (Fly By Night version) now. And I believe 'Igor' is actually pronounced as 'E'gor, not 'Eye'gor. Not that it matters, since Sputnik is actually pronounced 'Spootnik'.

Steve Martin once said, Those French - they have a word for EVERYTHING. ;-)

Wait, where were we? You kept two of the puppies? Yes, golden retrievers.

And Rush on tour. When you saw them, they must have had clothes dryers running onstage instead of amplifiers. It shows they weren't taking themselves too seriously after all the years - especially after Geddy's voice changed. These guys were having fun and wanted to share it with the audience. A year or two earlier they played in Brazil and Geddy introduced Alex as *The Guy From Ipanema*. Yup, he did.

But don't get me started on Rush - you may NEVER hear the end of it. ;-p

Let's talk about something boring so we can keep it brief.

For example - have you seen my meme today? ;-p

Fat finger posted accidentally...Alex is awesome and Geddy, what can you say except he made five bucks from Bob And Doug for doing "Great White North" Love Rush :)

OK, so I found their real names. They are:

Neil Elwood Peart / Gary Lee Weinrib / Alex Zivojinovich

Since 'ovich' means 'son of', that means 'Life' is the first part of his last name. Mystery solved.

And just for kicks, here are Neil's lyrics for Cyxnus X-1.

I hope you'll be amused to hear I was reprimanded for playing it LOUD. Although I don't think it was loud enough!

In the constellation of Cygnus
There lurks a mysterious, invisible force
The Black Hole of Cygnus X-1
Six stars of the northern cross
In mourning for their sister's loss
In a final flash of glory
Nevermore to grace the night
Invisible
To telescopic eye
Infinity
The star that would not die
All who dare
To cross her course
Are swallowed by
A fearsome force
Through the void
To be destroyed
Or is there something more?
Atomized, at the core
Or through the astral door
To soar
I set a course just east of Lyra
And northwest of Pegasus
Flew into the light of Deneb
Sailed across the Milky Way
On my ship, the 'Rocinante'
Wheeling through the galaxies,
Headed for the heart of Cygnus
Headlong into mystery
The x-ray is her siren song
My ship cannot resist her long
Nearer to my deadly goal
Until the black hole
Gains control
Spinning, whirling
Still descending
Like a spiral sea
Unending
Sound and fury
Drowns my heart
Every nerve
Is torn apart

Yup. Me too. Hey, wait - that's meathead!

Remember the airport scanner? And Stonehenge? Their last drummer exploded!

Tey later released an album called 'Break Like the Wind'. Not bad from Lenny of 'Lenny and Squiggy'.

And Meathead used to be married to Laverne. She made her debut when Mork debuted on Happy Days. Same episode. Fonzie set them up together. Shazbot!

And Meathead is the son of Carl, as you know. Too much going on there for this time of night, though.

Mork out. Nanu nanu.

Just figured, I have a Lenny And Squiggy Template, but it's at home...I'll send it along later. Lenny also had a cameo in Planes, Trains And Automobiles..Squiggy was (and maybe still is) a scout for The Mariners...Laverne was Oscar Madison's secretary (Myrna Turner) in The Odd Couple...too much and break's over...Nanu nanu.

Yes, the Odd Couple. I forgot she was on it. See? Brain dead!

Did NOT know about Squiggy, though. And the cameo - I forget if I saw that movie or not. Still great info - thanks for sharing! :-)

Yes, upvoted it, but didn't get a chance to comment, got my hands full replying...Eyegore is a reference to Young Frankenstein where Gene Wilder insists his name is pronounced Fronkensteen and Marty Feldman says his name is pronounced Eyegore. This reply belongs with your other comment, but I don't have time to change it...off to work

LOL! Oops, he was a state trooper. Planes, Trains And Automobiles is a Thanksgiving movie and I watch it every Thanksgiving without fail. I started doing this somewhere in the mid '90's and I also listen to "Alice's Restaurant" every Thanksgiving without fail (that started sometime in the '80's). How's that for OCD?

We used to watch March of the Wooden Soldiers every Thanksgiving.

But Alice's Restaurant is NOT optional. It's mandatory. Where else you gonna get the Group 'W' bench, and the 8 x 10's with circles and arrows? :-D
