Almost a 5 hour show. Nuts. Amazing experience though.

Has anyone been talking about the giant middle finger Al gave to the RRHOF? He was the last to go, and after 2 sincere and heartfelt speeches from the other guys, Alex gets up to the mike and says "blah blah blah" for 5 minutes. Literally, just saying that over and over again. With a lot of gesturing and theatrics. Hilarious, but awkward at the same time. Lots of "WTF" expressions in the crowd. Geddy didn't actually seem too pleased either.

The funniest part was the teleprompter was loaded with whatever speech he was supposed to give but just stuck on the first line while Alex went off on his rant. It was something lame like "I can't believe I met my best friend in first grade..." or somesuch. He probably took one look at that and said fuck it.

Whoever's editing this for HBO is gonna have one hell of a job.

I know Rush getting in was long overdo, but how the HELL was Quincy Jones not in? No wonder the RnRHoF is a joke.

 

The non-performer side of the HoF is always a clusterduck. Coming up on 30 years and still waiting for Brian Epstein's induction.

An Alex rant. Priceless.

I'll be there and try to post a few in here. I'll load it on my iPhone now so it's already there. :D

 

I'll also be posting them on my twitter if anybody will be on there tonight. @sirclinksalot

 

EDIT: Wow, the new iOS interface for the boards is AWESOME!!! Nicely done!!!

 

Is there an app you use or just load it in a browser?

There is an app but we aren't set up for it.

 

You just load via your browser, it works really well

I guess technically Alex "could have".

The Rush fans LOVED Alex's speech, vintage Alex. Even some Heart fans around me thought it was great. The rest of the room, not sure what they thought.

 

It was an epic night. The only WTF moment for me was Flava Flave. I'm a fan of PE, and of Flav, but he probably went on for 20 minutes of nonsense which probably caused me to miss the last train of the night and have to burn $40 on a Taxi to get back to my car. I already tweeted hm that he owes me $40. ;)

 

I'm uploading pics and vids from my phone now. I'll try and share some later. Didn't get home until 2am and I have 4 hours of conference calls coming up. This should be fun.
