Top Ten Wednesdays: How did we celebrate the release of the new Rush album?

Special Spirit of Streaming Radio Edition! 

XII. Remixed the track order using rolls from our 12-sided die.

XI. Discovered that the new album synchronizes perfectly with the movie Strange Brew.

X. Wrote fan fiction about the actual fiction that accompanies the album.

IX. Slappa’d sum bass.

VIII. Waxed our handlebar mustache, slipped into our most comfortable kimono, and lubed our ears.

VI. Composed a concept album about a young man looking for a woman who’s really into concept albums.

V. Answered every question anyone asked us by screeching, “YEAH, OH YEAH!”

IV. Filled a five-gallon drum full of Tim Horton’s and put on an adult diaper before playing all 20 studio albums in a row.

III. Tried converting our MP3 to 8-track.

II. Noted the irony that the current economy allowed us to recreate the conditions of listening to Rush when we were teenagers: being unemployed and living with our parents.

I. Spent the day with the album on repeat and an extended drum solo in our pants.

I already made the "Brando will be in his bunk" joke at my place, fish.

Great list, B. But I confessed that I interrupted my Rush fest yesterday by having my own little party with the new db's album.

"7 women at a Rush concert? It's a new record!"

That clip is so goddamned hilarious. So many in jokes -- you can tell the Paul Rudd and Jason Segal are serious Rush nerds. I would love to meet them some day just to talk about Rush for 10 minutes.

Not even a little credit for the 2112?

Sha'n't be back!

Fish, I apologize, I completely missed that's what those numbers added up to. Bra-vo and well played. You should really think about starting your own blog.
