It's official! The gathering will be at the Cosmopolitan Hotel, minutes from the Grand Garden Arena!

 

And I'm sorry you can't make it, Huge!

So can any random fool, such as myself, that no one from CP knows, attend? I already live in Vegas(unfortunately) so that's the easy part. There may be real Rush fans in this city but I never have met them and since this is the last blowout it would be quite cool to enjoy a pre-show party with some actual fans of the band.

 

Last time around I got there early to try and meet some cool people. That was a disaster as all the fools I came across didn't even know all three guys names in the band, and there's ONLY THREE GUYS!!!!!!!! How hard is it?

Come along, if you dare.  We don't bite...hard.  Clothing is always optional.  Rock on!

Thanks, guys. Really. I mean that. Las Vegas is many things to many people but for me it's always been a cursed place and I was born here so I do know a thing or two about theis town.

 

But, as Geddy's shirt says, "Blah, Blah, Blah". Enough of my crap.

 

You tell me when and exactly where, as the Cosmo is a rather large place and I'll be there with bells and whistles. Really, I'll be wearing a jester's suit.

 

No, no, wait, I'll be in jeans and a t-shirt but NOT a Rush shirt, as I'm not that guy.

 

Rule #1: You don't wear a shirt from the band you are seeing, as everyone there knows who's playing.

 

Rule #2: You can wear a shirt from the band playing if it's a classic, over 20 years old, and the only I have left is RTB and it ain't in great shape. My GUP shirt was so shrunken I couldn't wear it anymore so I sold it along with a boatload of others from way back then for a good chunk of money.

 

Rule #3: Ignore all have said as there is no good reason whatsoever for me to be making rules about anything. There should be no rules anyway.

 

Oh yeah, I think that's the casino with the supposedly really killer hidden pizza joint. Supposedly, I say, as the line was longer than the lines at opening day for the bathrooms at Wrigely Field this year. It's a tourist trap for sure but it might be good. I'm curious as hell as I'm a pizza snob, having made thousands of them, but I live here so why go to The Strip for a slice? I work at a place that is one of the best N.Y.C. pizza joints in town so I can have slices anytime.

 

Still, I'm damned curious.

 

I forgot to add, I do bite, but only men's nipples and toes. It's a Tourette's type disease where I just can't help myself. Hairy nipples and toejam, it doesn't get any sexier than that.

SO, according to Colin Cowherd, a sports guy, all Rush songs sound the same. Most of the ESPN guys wouldn't know Rock and Roll, in any form, if it bit their dong off so I won't take it seriously. It really is funny how that brainwashing has worked over the years.

 

But the context was funny. He was talking about some new rapper and some folksy guy, how they all sound the same, then pulls Rush out of his hat. I didn't see that one coming.

 

There's your Rush in the media update for today.

I can see someone saying that about a group like The Cars (in fact I had a friend who said exactly that!) but RUSH?   Only if they had something blocking the opening in the ear, kinda like Peanut Butter.....NYAHNYAH.gif

If you guys have this enthusiasm about coming to Vegas I hope it rubs off on me. I've been here too long and never liked the town to begin with(which somewhat plays into me being a Rush geek as none else seemed to care about the music I liked) but meeting just a few of you all should make the day much merrier, if I might say.

 

For me, Vegas is a downer and that's just the way it is(you know, life happens and such) and I deal with it(badly, sometimes) but........

 

All that aside, I just SO wanna meet some true Rush geeks. Yeah, I should post more often maybe I'd meet some and blah, blah, blah. Life happens, didn't I mention that?

 

So, waddya say? Let's BOOGIE!!!!*

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

*With Acknowledgment To The Genius Of Spinal Tap**

 

** OK, it's Marti DiBergi, not the Mighty Tap that coined that, but close enough. So sue me. If Spinal Tap had never existed, then ctitics, rock scholars and fans alike pondering this most existential band would never have heard those words, as such, uttered.***

 

***Spinal Tap RULES and anyone who argues with me shall surely be mocked with all the greatness of the greatest band in the history of history. You can't get any greater than a band that recorded without mics as they were so loud the tape just picked it up. Even Chuck Norris doesn't have that to his resume.****

 

****If anyone here believes any of my bullshit, then Google the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus and possibly, seek psychiatric help. Or do some acid, maybe a 1/8th of 'shrooms, and read my posts again whilst peaking. One or the other will work, I assure you. It'll help, and I should know.

 

Oh frikkin' yeah, Neil found his frikkin' luggage, how damned cool is THAT? I'm re-reading Roadshow(and if I wasn't off getting beer, I'm on that damned cover) again just for the hell of it but that spawned it. Neil Peart, travel writer. The irony.
