Well Helloooo! Happy summer! Masks off, boom-boxes out. This week on 2GTR John and Dan tackle big topics, while massaging each others egos. No seriously…who hasn’t been ––Rush Shamed––at least once in their life? I have…and at 50 years old I am still poked fun at for digging the best damn band in the universe. It all comes down to science folks …natural science…and it makes perfect sense to me why I love Rush so much…in fact its “quite logical captain.” But not everyone does, and we want to find out why on 2GTR. Remember, It’s our job to listen to and respect non-believers in this format. As hosts we want to hear everyone’s side of the story. It gets really boring, really fast, when you are in a room full of people who agree on everything. Now to jog your warm memory chips…Pause: Rewind–replay– In April 2021 San Francisco based writer Leslie (ooh-lin-nen) Ylinen at McSweeney's Daily Humor website wrote an article titled “An FAQ About Your New Birth Control: The Music of Rush” - a satirical take on using Rush as birth control. Here is a snippet of the controversial and hilariously funny piece: “... No one has ever gotten pregnant while listening to the music of Rush. Clinical studies show that when combined with watching a male sexual partner play air bass along to the extended solo in "Freewill," the contraceptive efficacy of Rush approaches 100%. ...” Leslie is a smart, and talented writer. We were honored to have her on our show. Thank you Leslie! Unstable condition? No way…this episode was a ton of fun! Love, John & Dan Please support us on Patreon if you can:
