Except maybe call it something other than shrine, something that doesn't imply deification.
Great band. I've seen them 3 times in concert. I also played bass guitar in a rock band in high school with an amazing drummer who was totally into Rush so we played a bunch of their songs. He went on to play for a reasonably famous professional band.
What can this strange device be? When I touch it, it gives forth sound.
OMFG I wish I could have seen them in concert, but I only got on the bandwagon after they had retired and Neil Peart died :( Do you have a favorite song or album (I'm guessing you love 2112 too haha)?
It’s got wires that vibrate, and give music What can this thing be that I found?
Do you have any recordings of your music / bass guitar? would be so cool to hear it
I think I first heard them on the radio with their Moving Pictures album. Unfortunately, I didn't really get to see them the first time in concert until their Power Windows tour. I love all of their music from Rush up through Signals, after that, not as much. They were always amazing in concert, though, no matter what album they were on tour for. One of the best sounding live bands I've ever heard.
Favorite song....I dunno, maybe Red Barchetta, Limelight, 2112, or this..... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SEuOoMprDqg
I don't have any recordings of our old stuff anymore. I wish I did but it's been years. We actually made a demo tape of three original songs our guitarist wrote the lyrics and guitar part for...then we each added our own parts. Don't have that either anymore. :( I've moved around a LOT in my life and possessions go their own way over time, lol.
Neal took alot of inspiration from dystopian Ayn Rand novels, which of course inspired me to read them. Anthem and The Fountainhead were my 2 favorites. Anthem is short, about 100 pages as I recall, and was the first one I read.
Oh, I almost forgot. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Jm4LoOaAWI Take off, eh!
Xanadu is a great song! I ended up reading Anthem and The Fountainhead because of Rush too. I considered Atlas Shrugged but it is extremely long and I struggled through the second half of The Fountainhead because characters increasingly went on several page ranting monologues. It's a shame your recordings weren't saved - do you still play? Maybe you can make some new recordings. :)
Also I've had Take Off on repeat for awhile haha even though I'm not from The Great White North. Ten bucks is ten bucks!
No, I haven't played bass since maybe my first year of college. I sort of picked it up because I wanted to play music and that's what the bands I played in needed (bass players were always in short supply). But listening to people like Geddy Lee, John Paul Jones, Stanley Clarke, and others instilled a love of the instrument in me. It's something I wouldn't mind exploring again someday. Still, I've always been a bit
more into guitars - especially acoustic guitars. I have an old Fender that I dabble on occasionally. Even more than that, though, I've always been a singer, though never professionally. That's where my true love is. :)

I'm not from the GWN either, but it's a beauty, eh? :)
Thanks for the YouTube links, I'll check those out :)
also thanks for the follow!
Thanks for visiting my site! I change the jukebox song every so often :D
Hey solaria! I agree, actually I saw a case of data fudging and they got fired. But yeah, I focused the science page mostly on positive stuff because I don't wanna drag down the web with drama and sadness. I basically burned out and couldn't go on with it. There's a lot wrong with academia. I did really enjoy exploring the fields of psychology and neuroscience though. What area of chemistry did you study?
@pixelglade i didnt get far enough to get into a particular area, i was in my senior year of my chem degree and ended up dropping out because i couldnt see a future for myself in it. part of the problem was that i couldnt come uo with a research project. my gut feeling was to do something with colors, but i felt like i had so much to learn before i could come up with my own research
all research is effectively based on what came before, but colours sound really cool. totally understand not seeing a future in science though
Felt bad for leaving the runner up for Caress of Steel blank so I put the Necromancer in.
