Peart snub... Bogus.

elkboy: Peart snub... Bogus.


Not bogus: "It's just that he didn't grow up in Willowdale. (Your move, St. Catharines.)"

I understood the reason, but the park is named after two members of the band "RUSH"...  it is not named after the band "RUSH" as the headline promised.  And, as a long-time Fark member, I've come to understand that all headline promises must be true.

/Still pretty cool

Love that chick singer!

Not Lakeside Park? No willows in the breeze?

Nose too sharp.  Definitely below my standards.

Willowdale's to blame, eh? I always thought Rush came from deepest Scarberia.

"Utter crap" is a strange name for a park.
 
2014-08-02 02:50:27 PM  
Who loves to take their lunch break in that park??


SALESMEN!!!

It's Y-Y-Zed!

And no, Neal Peart stands alone.

Love Rush, but this line from TFA reeks of generic BS:


"On tour and during our travels," Lee said, "we get to visit and enjoy so many parks around the world and really appreciate having that communal green space that is so important to a vibrant city.

Sounds better than I remember it.

LOL, fair enough!

Neil Peart grew up in St. Catharines, and I doubt St. Catharines will do anything for him, since he doesnt really do anything for the city. I cant blame him, the town needs an enema.

I was wondering why no women were at that park.

/i keed, i keed
//have heard Rush themselves joking about how no women go to their shows
 
2014-08-02 04:38:40 PM  
While technically brilliant, the walks in the park are described as "overly long, meandering and soulless"
 
2014-08-02 04:45:21 PM  
The "cool" tag and Rush should never, ever appear together.
 
2014-08-02 04:45:38 PM  

WHERE PUDDING WHE


oh, wait, wrong Rush
 
2014-08-02 04:46:06 PM  
Maybe they could rename the lake Peart lives on in Quebec or maybe some Monadnock-style mountain nearby.

\Voyez-vous ce que j'ai fait là-bas?

Eh, it's probably a shout out to famous Canadian urban-philosopher Jane Jacobs.  Rush are awesome in that way  :)

If you ffwd to 6:50 or so in the "perfect" link I posted above, they scan the crowd and it's practically all women!  The director probably combed through hours of footage to find that one shot though.

Farking Limbaugh. Typical rightwing hypocricy. Spend taxpayer money on one of their own, them say the budget must be tightened. Can't with for the Rushbo Orphanage for Dominican Youth. All male, of course.

A city park? Paid with tax dollars? That's not very libertarian.

Wrong.   It's  DADIDADAH DADIDADAH DADADIDIT.

The Lakeside Park from the song already exists... in St. Catherines ON.  Peart's hometown.
