    A radio DJ friend of mine posted earlier that around the world today, people are mispronouncing Neil's last name. :bergman:

    too be honest I've only see his name in print, never spoken. Does it rhyme with "squirt" or is there a different way to say it?

    oh I see. On the radio news today they pronounced it sounding like the word "part" as in "I part my hair in the middle."

    to be honest he wasn't quite as much a "household name" as were many of our more well known recently deceased rock musicians. The Family Guy clip I posted pronounces it like "squirt" for example.
    That said I don't think that when Geddy Lee passes away anybody will not pronounce his name just as it's spelled.

    So, mumblety mum years ago, a friend of mine played me snippets of a song and asked me to guess who it was by. The bits and pieces I heard made me think of Rush, even though I knew it couldn't have been a Rush song. Turns out that it was by a Canadian band called Placebo. Today, I discovered another track by them which seems to fit this moment.



    And in case you're wondering what the song was that my friend played me bits of, it's this one:

    makes sense

    HAMILTON, Ontario — Neil Peart’s elaborate drum kit is set to be divided up and donated to schools across Canada in order to provide every music class with proper equipment following his untimely death this past week.


    “Mr. Peart was a legend that inspired multiple generations of drummers and pushed the limits of what many of us thought was possible,” said Canada’s Minister of Education Steven Lecce. “There are currently two cargo ships heading towards Vancouver carrying most of his kit. We expect to start breaking it down and dividing it across our 15,500 public schools, which should give each classroom at least three pieces of equipment each, with hundreds of cymbals left over. Thank you Mr. Peart, you will not be forgotten.”


    Music students across the country were excited to begin playing on pieces of Peart’s legendary setup.

    “I know it’s sort of crazy, but I hope some of Mr. Peart’s magic will be transferred to me when I start playing on his drums,” said middle school student Claude Brodeur. “If even one percent of his talent is transferred over then I’ll be the best drummer in all of Manitoba.

    Peart’s used drum sticks are expected to be recycled and used as raw materials to build affordable housing for low income families.
