Hust watching a humorous programme on ERE looking at sports tv coverage from the past and the theme music was the intro and out to to Grand Designs. Not sure if that music was actually used at the time?

I'm watching Warehouse 13 on Pick, and I'm sure the male agent just said something about Rush being the best band ever (well, that would go down well here), but then spoiled it by saying that Snakes and Arrows was the best album since Roll The Bones.


Actually, looking at the studio albums since Roll The Bones, that wasn't saying a lot really.

Standing in the shadows, hiding from the light
Reach out in the darkness, and hold on for your life
All the fear of the future, all the emptiness inside
When the moment of truth arrives, hey, you can run but you can't hide

We had a legends darts night up our working men's club a couple of weeks ago, and 3 time world champion, John Part, who is a Canadian, was one of the players. I went to have a throw up with him on the practice board, and he noticed my 2112 t-shirt. He said "RUSH. Geddy Lee, Neil Peart, and who's the other one?". I told him it was Alex Lifeson, to which he replied, "Ah yes. It's like the Severn dwarves.You know their names, but sometimes you forget them." 😁.

Walked into the living room where I found the One Show was on the TV playing to an audience of 0. I was about to switch it off when I noticed a fat bearded bloke in a 2112 T-Shirt.
