  1. Amen! If you can’t have a good time blasting “Tom Sawyer,” then some awesome part of you has withered. I say, raise a joint to Neil Peart tonight, and go get it back. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.newyorker.com/culture/postscript/the-misfit-awesomeness-of-neil-peart-and-rush/amp
  2. If you had felt compelled to reply to the post...most consecutive gold/platinum albums: 1. Beatles 2. Rolling Stones 3. Rush I understand how people dont like or "get" Rush, I really do. Geds voice is unique to say the least. What I will never understand is the steadfast unwillingness of some who absolutely refuse to acknowledge their musicianship, longevity and above all the massive influence that they had on countless rock musicians who followed them. As someone said in the Rush documentary Beyond The Lighted Stage made circa 2010 (currently still on Netflix btw)..."if you cant give Rush their due at this point (35 years in), then you're just being a dick."
  3. Haven't watched any Sabres in 6 weeks and I just turned on the game 10 minutes ago only to see 2 straight Canuck goals. In the words of the Professor.. Plus ca change Plus c'est la meme chose

  5. Statement from the band. It is with broken hearts and the deepest sadness that we must share the terrible news that on Tuesday our friend, soul brother and band mate of over 45 years, Neil, has lost his incredibly brave three and a half year battle with brain cancer (Glioblastoma). We ask that friends, fans, and media alike understandably respect the family’s need for privacy and peace at this extremely painful and difficult time. Those wishing to express their condolences can choose a cancer research group or charity of their choice and make a donation in Neil Peart's name. Rest in peace brother. Neil Peart September 12, 1952 - January 7, 2020
  6. And they both somehow managed to keep their battles with terminal illness private. Difficult to do these days.
  7. Shocked and stunned. The author of the beats and words that were the soundtrack of my youth and into adulthood. RIP Professor.
  8. The Bills losing because they got outplayed and the refs being ***** to the benefit of the Pats* are not mutually exclusive concepts. Both can be true. Also, just because one can point to examples of the Bills getting bad calls that benefit them doesn't mean teams like the Pats* dont benefit more often and many times in crucial game changing situations. Furthermore, acknowledging that the Pats* do indeed on balance benefit more from bad/missed calls does not mean that someone is buying into some grand conspiracy theory that the NFL is out to get the Bills. When teams that are dominant year and and year out play teams that have been largely irrelevant for a very long time, theres a natural human tendency and bias towards making calls that benefit the non irrelevant team.
  9. Lost a very close life long friend to cancer a week ago today. From diagnosis to being gone forever was exactly one month. It's still surreal and I'm going to miss the hell out of him. Another friend of ours was able to attend the Sabres 70's night, get a throwback pennant signed by some of the old timers and sent it down to our buddy in Florida before he passed. He said that Tony McKegney took a good long time talking to him and wished our friend the best. Tony mentioned that his family has been hit particularly hard by cancer.
  10. Even when the Bills were good, and yes I'm old enough to remember...I didnt really play the what if game with looking down the schedule. Now that they've been irrelevant for two decades I've been largely apathetic for most of the time, but when they do put together the odd early season promising run like this one I'm in the "show me the final second ticking off the clock in a playoff clinching win" camp.
