    Geddy Lee is my pal!

    Posted by: Otto Lange

    Okay, not my "pal" in any real sense, but I like to think that nonetheless.

    In 1982, I went to boy scout camp, and learned:

    -how to use a compass
    -row a canoe
    -tie a bunch of knots to lash together a tower made out of found wood
    -cook meat
    -roll a joint
    -smoke a joint
    - and that Rush is one of the greatest bands of all time!
    While other boys may have been drowning in the lake ( that happened) or getting molested ( that happened too), I chose to smoke pot in a tent and listen to the 1982 masterpiece Signals on a Panasonic boom-box with the "older boys".

    I still think I made the right choice. That album still kills! That driving bass in "Countdown"? So awesome!
